Video creation tips

We're not looking for a professionally-developed video. Use the tools you already have, like your phone or tablet. Most phones/tablets have video editing software freely available. Or, use a free online program like Adobe Spark. With this type of program, you can add multiple photos/videos, nice transitions, and text with little effort.

Make sure that you follow all applicable copyright rules for any material you use in your video. You should only use material that (1) you created, (2) you purchased for reuse (stock photo or video websites), or (3) is licensed for reuse (using something like the Creative Commons License or similar). For example, YouTube has a library of free music that you can use without any restrictions.
