You can use a flip camera, a Droid phone, an iPhone, a video camera. As long as it can take some video of you running, we can use it! To learn the details of how to create your video, read the steps below.
What to wear?
Running shorts, running shoes and sport bra (or no shirt for the men) or tight fitting shirt, tucked into your shorts.
Where to Film?
Your running video can be performed outside on a level surface with good lighting or on a treadmill.
Where does the Phone/Video Go? Set up the video camera (or iphone) at thigh or hip level and preferably on a tripod or level surface; or have a friend hold the camera at thigh or hip level and maintain a level shot.
What to Record?
Video your normal running stride
From the back for 10-30 seconds.
From the front for 10-30 seconds.
From the side for 3-10 steps on each leg.
You can do this easiest with a friend following you with the camera as you run by; or run by your video camera/phone at least 3 times from each side.
Specifics to aim for while videoing your running: Try to fit your whole body in the shot from each angle (front, back, left side, right side views). At least one shot from the rear with your whole foot, leg and hips in the frame.
