Some tips for a successful video:

  • Gaps and pauses are fine, don’t rush. A short answer to the point is much more likely to be used. The whole edited video will be made up of short, relevant responses.
  • Good sound is important, turn off fans where possible and move the microphone close to your mouth, test the sound before starting.
  • More light will improve most video recordings, use the highest resolution possible, the resolution is not critical but we do want to see your face (or an entertaining stand in).
  • Be positive! Be happy! Smile at the start of a response and sit up straight.


  • Pete will decide everything. Pete will have the final say. Pete’s decision will be final unless he changes his mind. No guarantee of compensation, reward, payment or credit is offered, nor will it be provided for any video.
  • Entries must be posted here in our forum with a link but can be uploaded to any video streaming service.
