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 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:

o 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.

 

o 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 ( http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html ) 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.

 

OR

 

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 NAME 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.
