VIDEO SUBMISSION TIPS
You must provide a link to a video clip in your submission form. A pre-existing online video of your display from this year is ideal. You can also create a custom video for your application.
For best results: On camera, have someone film you, introducing yourself and your team in a well-lit area. Be sure to state the names and ages of all your teammates and specify your hometown in your video.
For the best display-only footage: Video-record your Christmas display using a smart phone held in landscape mode (sideways, not vertical), a video recorder, and/or a drone. Please make sure we can see and hear everything clearly. Stand in different positions throughout your display, hold the camera steady and move it slowly (if using a phone, please hold it horizontally so the video fills the screen and doesn’t come out tall and skinny). Include wide shots of your entire display and close ups of the details that make your display special. No need to buy a drone, find someone who has access to a drone and have them take some great footage for you, it’s the holidays! Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday season to all!!
