  • Please shoot video with a high resolution HD video camera or a smart phone.
  • When using a smart phone, tablet (iPad), or iPod touch, record the video in landscape (horizontal) other words, turn it sideways!
  • Be aware of the microphone’s location and don’t cover it with your fingers or hand.
  • Hold the camera steady and speak clearly.
  • Introduce yourself directly to camera and tell us why you would be a great candidate for our show.
  • Directly to camera, tell us what room you would like remodeled and why.
  • Tell us what your personal story is and how this renovation would help your family.
  • Walk us through the space...record a tour of the space you would like remodeled. Be sure to include wide shots of the space from all sides of the room, and pan the camera from side to side. Narrate the tour...tell us what we are seeing as you record it. 
  • Show us a few closer details: things you really hate and desperately want to change.
  • Introduce family members who live in the home. Do they want a remodel as well? Why?
