SEND ME YOUR VIDEOS! - 1 Second Per Steemian - Video Project Update for 11/27/2016
I don't get excited about a project very often, but I am super pumped about this video, and we've got a solid start already. For an explanation of what this project is about, please refer to >>THIS POST<<.
100% of the material used to produce this video will be content provided by the Steemit community. Steemit crowdsourcing at its finest.
Our goal is between 100-200 clips So keep 'em coming!
HINT: You can use your 1 second to show us what Steemit means to you.
First of all, we need the right music.
So while you're sending me your video links, that's what I'm currently on the hunt for. This is the backbone of the project. It sets the mood of the whole video, carrying everybody's clips from beginning to end. It provides a sort of "wireframe" or "scaffold" onto which the video will be built, and it also determines the length of the project. Once we have the right song, we'll have a clearer idea of how much time we'll need to fill, and therefore how many clips will ultimately be needed. I've been looking at some excellent candidates for music from artists right here on Steemit, and considering what I've seen after toying around with the editor thus far, I believe we've got a lot of potential for a successful video.
If you have any musical offerings, please feel free to reply to >>THIS POST<< with your link .
Animated Steemit Logo
This will go at the end of the video. I've been looking around to see what I can find as far as high-quality animated logos, and while there aren't very many what I've found has been impressive.
Just as with music, if any of you would like to take a stab at an animated Steemit logo, by all means go for it and reply with your link to >>THIS POST<<.
Even though everybody gets 1 second, make sure your clip is at least 5-10 seconds in length. Always better to overshoot than to come up short. And, as always, please keep your submissions clean.
For those of you using your phones, keep in mind that while it's not a big deal when shooting photos, when shooting video the best practice is to shoot horizontally, not vertically. That is to say, shoot in landscape, not portrait. While vertical video submissions won't necessarily be disqualified, horizontal is preferred.
Image Source 1 - Image Source 2
Use the highest quality video setting you can. SD is acceptable, but HD (720p or 1080p) is preferred, and 4K is just you being an overachiever. ;-)
As far as frame rates (if that's a question for anyone), filming at 24 fps or higher is preferred.
I'm incredibly excited to get started on this. I can't wait to see what footage you guys submit. This is going to be so much fun!
Please keep all submissions of any kind to the comments section of >>THIS POST<<.
Questions, however, are free to be asked anywhere!
