Hello there Extra Life Family!
As you may know, 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of Extra Life Edmonton! This is a huge milestone and we want to go the extra mile to make it special! As part of this, we are planning a super cool video project and we need your help!
We need some of you awesome Extra Lifers to submit videos to be part of this project! We have some questions we would love for you to answer. Cordell, our resident video extraordinaire, has prepared the following to help with shooting your video, as well as explaining what we need:
Record using webcam or phone in a horizontal frame and show at least waist up in center frame (Keep subject within green bars if possible). Please have adequate lighting and appropriate wear (Bonus points for wearing community-related swag!)
Record the video in 24-30 FPS (Frames per second) please do not use 60 FPS. Record with a resolution of 1920×1080.
If there are any questions or issues please reach out to Cordell on Discord (@Extrodias#7490) and he will be happy to help!
Please keep responses 10-15 SECONDS long each (No worries if it goes longer!) and while recording, leave a TWO SECOND PAUSE before and at the end of each question. answering the required questions and additional questions if you want! (the main questions will be used and full cuts will be posted on our website with the submitter’s permission.)
