How can I write better titles on my footage clips?

  • Your descriptive title should always include 'who', 'what', and 'where'.
    - The subject of the clip, along with either what is happening and/or where it’s happening.
    - Example: Father throws baseball to son in living room.

  • It can also be helpful to include:
    - Unique shot types or scene view, such as: rack focus, aerial/drone, close up (CU), back/front view, etc.
    - Clothing or prop description when notable, such as: ‘Doctor with stethoscope and lab coat examines patient’.

  • Aim for titles with 65 characters, which includes spaces. The minimum length is 16 characters and the max is 140 characters.

  • Do not repeat words unnecessarily in your titles.

  • We reserve the right to request you edit and resubmit metadata if it does not meet our submission requirements.
