When it comes to recording a happy birthday video message, many people get camera shy or just don’t feel comfortable with a camera pointing at them. We get it, it can be nerve-racking. We can't expect everyone to feel at ease recording a video message.
Even when you're sincere, it’s easy to fumble on your words or make strange faces during the video recording. It’s totally normal to take multiple attempts when recording a birthday video message. In the end, the best video clips are realized when you speak from the heart and don’t overthink it. Remember to just have fun and be yourself. Talk to the camera as if the recipient was in front of you.
