Leading up to the conference, ESC will be highlighting sessions on social media accounts by posting video abstracts submitted by the presenters.
What is a video abstract?
A video abstract is used to attract viewers to the research being discussed and encourage an audience to attend the event to see more from the presenter. The goal for the video abstracts the presenters submit to ESC is to highlight key points from the presentation that will showcase the presenter’s efforts focused on “The Impact of Engaged Scholarship: People, Purpose, and Passion.”
What content should be included?
The video abstract should have the following components:
- Introduce yourself including name, title, discipline/program, and university affiliation
- Title of the presentation and quick background on your presentation
- A unique story element:
- Why did you choose this topic?
- How do you feel about presenting?
- Is this topic timely? Can other people relate to it? If so, how?
- What is an interesting fact you will be presenting on?
Remember the goal is to engage with our social media audience and leave them wanting more. So, when you are talking about your project give them enough information so they are interested but do not give them all your findings.
Setting up the shot
- Find a space where there is minimal background noise (fans, A/C, animals, road sounds, etc.).
- Place lighting behind the computer, camera, or phone that you are recording on.
- Use headphones as your microphone to get the best recording.
- Dress appropriately. Show your support and wear your college’s gear if you have it!
- Choose a clean background.
- Film the video vertically.
- Speak at a rate of 100-150 words per minute. Try to keep the video under 2 minutes so the script can be between 100-250 words depending on how fast you speak. That is not a lot but try your best to keep your scripts short.
- Speak in a normal conversational tone like you are telling someone a story.
- Remember to speak from key points from your script but make this a conversation.
These videos will be featured on ESC’s website and will be featured on ESC’s social media accounts. You can use several file types, including MP4, MOV, or GIF. Once recorded, submit your video abstract via email as an attached file to ESC2022@georgiacenter.uga.edu.
