Best Practices for BSA Videos & Audio

& Required Specifications

In order to provide the best possible viewing & listening experience for the audience members of our annual BSA, the ASB & ALHS Tech Crew request that all clubs/student groups follow these guidelines for submitted media for the BSA.  Thank you.

For Videos to be played during the BSA:

  • Video should be taken (captured) using a video camera (or smart phone) that can shoot High Definition (HD) quality video (if possible) so the image is not pixelated & looks poor on a large screen.
  • Video should be captured holding the video camera so that it captures widescreen video (a wide shot with a horizontal frame), NOT a tall skinny video with large black boxes on the sides (this is very unprofessional).
  • Video should have credits at the end which include: names of the individuals in the video (first names only are fine), who the video was shot by & edited by, & citing the source of any music used in the video with the following 3 things:
    1. Artist/singer/band/DJ
    2. Official name of the song in quotes
    3. The name of the official album that the music is from
  • Do not shoot video of people/objects in front of a very sunny/bright window/glass door or else the people/objects will be dark-lit & hard to see in the video (move away from bright windows to avoid this).
  • A Video’s Audio:
    • If you have background music in your video, make sure that it is NOT too loud & therefore makes it difficult to hear the voices of the people in your video.
    • Make sure you capture video where there is NOT loud &/or distracting background noise happening or we won’t be able to hear the voices of the people in your video.
  • Turn in your video as a HD video file format (these formats are acceptable: .mov (Quicktime), .mp4 (H.264 Format), or .avi video (NOTE: no BluRay video formats will be accepted).
  • Please test your video BEFORE submitting it for the BSA by playing in  a VLC Video Media Player ( ) on a computer PRIOR to turning it in by the deadline.  Be sure to watch your whole completed video, from start to finish, & make sure the audio & the video quality are good & if not, fix it in your original video editing software & re-export it.
  • Submitting your video (ONLY 2 ways):
  1. Each video must be saved as an individual digital video file onto a CD or DVD that is playable on a computer’s Media Player (i.e.: VLC Player) (NOTE: No BluRay Discs will be accepted). Please label the CD/DVD (using a Sharpie) with the name of the club, duration of the video & the name of the contact person for the club.
  2. Each video must be saved as an individual digital video file that is playable on a computer’s Media Player (i.e.: VLC Player) and uploaded to Google Drive and share with an open link to a BSA coordinator.  Please label the video file with the name of the club &  duration of the video.

For Audio (Music) to be Played during a BSA Performance:

  • Make sure that you have a high quality audio file to turn in, which is created using iTunes and formatted as a music CD which works in a CD player (NOT JUST A COMPUTER).
  • Please label your CD (using a Sharpie) with name of club, the contact person and duration/length of the music.
  • Please test your Audio/Music BEFORE submitting it for the BSA by playing in a CD Player PRIOR to turning it in by the deadline.
