Tips on making home video

No those sort of home movies...
 
I've been asked by a supps company to record some video footage using their product in a recipe.  Now, I often do this sort of thing as blog posts and social, but I've never created a video.  I've told them this and they said not to worry as they will edit it.
 
Have any of you guys done anything like this?  Should I worry about lighting, etc?  My iPhone is the only thing I have with a camera, is that 'good enough'?
 
Any tips would be appreciated.
Oh, I also failed to mention to them that I have a Welsh valleys accent

Without lighting try and use as much natural daylight as possible.
Does an iPhone film at 1080p?...30fps?...What sound source if any at the time are you using?
Always film the subject at its height, don't film from above.
Hold the camera at waist level to help reduce hand shake ( assuming iPhone don't have optical stabilisation).
If filming a still object..ie food, try panning the the left/ right just alittle..so it doesn't look like a weird still image.

Thanks guys, great tips there.  I'll have to free up a saturday to film in the kitchen when there's plenty of natural light.  Hoepfully can get my daughter to help =)
