What’s your passion?
Consider the following when creating your video
1. Unique and memorable introduction engages the audience immediately and communicates the purpose of the piece.
2. Narrator sounds comfortable and has practiced the piece for an excellent delivery.
Words are clear and pacing is appropriate.
3. The language structures and terminology used enhance the message and its purpose.
4. The graphics and images contribute to a creative and effective presentation and enhance key points by contributing to the concept explanation.
5. Shots are in focus and nicely cropped. The camera work is smooth and steady.
Follows technical requirements:
• File format and resolution: High Definition, “as close to the original, high quality source format as possible.” .MOV, .MPEG4, MP4, .AVI, or .WMV
• Aspect ratio: Filmed horizontally (not vertically)
• Duration: Minimum 2 min, Max: 20 minutes
