Video Essays: Referencing in a Video Essay

Referencing in a Video Essay

When you're referencing in a video essay, be sure to use APA 7th edition as you would a written work. You can cite your sources in the video by putting a pop-up in-text citation somewhere on the screen while you quote the source. Then, at the end of the video, be sure to reference all your sources with an end card. 

For film clips or stills, have an in-text citation in the top or bottom of the screen. Then provide a list of the films you used in the video towards the end.

If you need to check the way the reference something, use the FRAME guide below.
