Shooting & Uploading Tips:

  • DSLR quality footage is strongly preferred. (Higher quality footage will not be turned away.)
  • Please no visible logos on clothing and products (no nike or adidas across your chest please!).
  • Ideal clips are one minute or less.
  • Please do not stand underneath florescent lights or put your back right up to a window.
  • De-clutter the background, otherwise the viewer isn’t sure where they should be looking
  • Please avoid wearing black or white shirts or shirts with really loud patterns. Blue, green, brown and gray are the new black!
  • If using mobile phone, please shoot in horizontal mode, Vertical video will not be used.
