We have a number of different categories to help you with ideas on what to base your video around. These are set up like questions and you relate your video around the answer to the question to make it easier on what to do in your video. You will need a phone, tablet or camera and a story to tell!
Here are a few tips to help you get started:

• If you are a WWOOFer try and capture the Hosts farm in your video. And for Hosts try capture the WWOOFers helping out with projects on your property.
• Make sure the video is good quality and not too much background noise eg. if its too windy it will affect the sound for the video.
• Use different camera angels to add variety to your video
• Use slow movements when holding your phone or camera to avoid a shaky and unsteady video. This will make it hard for viewers to watch. A tripod will come in handy.
• Write a simple outline for your video before you begin making it. Set up a beginning, middle and end to help when filming.
• Interviewing hosts or WWOOFers in your video about the question you chose will add variety to your video.. Try not to make this part too long. When interviewing make sure it is in a quiet location so the sound is not distorted. Also make sure the light source is behind the camera, facing the subject.
• Add an opening title (a good idea is to use the question you chose) and a closing scene. (something that relates to your story. This will be the final image the viewer will see).
• Add relevant information to your vide eg, Your name, name of hosts and WWOOFers featuring in the video if any, name of city where video was filmed, name of hosts farm, credit any music where necessary, including the artists name and song, the WWOOF NZ Logo. You can access the logo here: (
• The length of your film should be around 2-3 minutes (no more than 3 minutes).
