Video Story Tips

Prepare your message.

Begin your video with “My name is ____ and I’ve been a member of the A.C.T. family for ____ years!” Then tell your A.C.T. story. If you’re a subscriber or donor, be sure to tell us. You may want to write down some thoughts ahead of time.

Make sure we can hear you.

Pick a quiet place to make your video. Speak clearly and project your voice.

Make sure we can see you.

Light should be on your face and not behind it—i.e. don’t sit in front of a bright window. If you like, wear an A.C.T. shirt or your subscriber pin.

If you're using a smartphone, hold the phone horizontally.

Record your video.

Use your webcam or smartphone to record the video. Please keep your video under three (3) minutes in length. To send us your video, Email it to us at If your video is too long for standard Email services, you can use the free file-transfer website All you’ll need to do is follow the onscreen instructions to put in our Email address, your Email address, and a link to your video.
