Here are Ideas for Videos You Can Make

  • Make a Bio video. You can talk or show something. Some guys do not like to talk on camera! We don't care as long as you do not include licensed music and (get written permission from anyone else who appears in the video). You just need to appear in the video. If you want to talk, we give you suggested questions to answer in front of a video camera.
  • Make a short video just before your practice shoot. What do you expect your practice shoot will be like? Make this video the night before your shoot, or just prior to leaving your apartment for your practice shoot.
  • Make a short video the night before your final photo shoot. What do you expect? What is your biggest concern about the upcoming shoot?
  • Videos are easier to make if you partner with a male friend who is also a Campus Man. So, encourage a buddy to also Create a Campus Men profile.
  • Campus Cribs - make a homemade video where you show girls your crib. Just like MTV's cribs ...except it gets included on CampusMen.com and girls get to see where you hang!

Any interesting story (reaction from girls) that happened when you wore it? What is one thing guys should wear to impress girls? (If you only where t-shirts and sandals, make a joke out of this.
  • Grooming Products: What do you do to get ready in the bathroom? Show the product to the camera, say its name clearly & say something about the product - why do you use it? What does it do for you?
