Accessing scripts for filming

You can access your scripts at any time via both the VideoMyJob web dashboard and the app, but most importantly you can easily access your scripts whilst in filming mode.

Here's how:

  • Once you have selected 'Record a Video' and are in filming mode, on screen you will see a silhouette and sample script
  • Tap the blue pen next to the script OR click on the actual text of the sample script
  • This will open up your 'Scripts'
  • Select a script of choice OR write one, it will automatically load into your video
  • By default, your most recently edited script appears when you begin recording
