Smartphone Camera

Activity / Action Project

We need videos filmed this week !

Project Purpose:  This study is to develop and improve products and services that operate using image and video data.  (Example: smartphone camera focusing, color, contrast, etc.)

All videos are anonymous, confidential, and not for public use.  They are for research purposes only.  

Participants (children between ages 1 and 3) will be asked to perform a particular action, such as throwing an object, playing on a slide, or eating, while the parent films (handheld) with a smartphone camera.

Videos are very short (about 15 seconds each). 

Participants:  Participants must be of the following racial / ethnic background:

Hispanic or Latino/Latinx or Spanish Origin

We are looking for boy and girl participants in the following age divisions:

Young Toddler (12 - 24 months)

Older Toddler (2 - 3 years)

Pay for Completion:  Payment is $15 per approved activity (one set of three videos) and up to eight activities. (So the potential payment for each participant is between $15 and $120.)

Parents may have more than one child as a participant.

(Our company has specific limits for how many videos of each gender and age group to obtain, so the amount of videos available to participants may vary.) 

Collection Method: Videos will be filmed and submitted using our our client's smartphone app (iOS or Android).  You will film them on your own in and around your home or a park.

Our client does not receive your name, just your PIN number and demographic information.  

Client Company:  Appen (

If your family would like to participate, please fill out the application form below and we will contact you.  All videos must be filmed and submitted by Tuesday, 12/22.

Please note:  if you'd like to be contacted for participation, it is very important that you are specific about what genders, ages, and activities your family would be able to film.
