As part of the evening’s festivities, we’re looking for Milwaukee filmmakers to submit videos to be included in a looping film montage at the party.

Submission Guidelines:

There is NO fee.

ALL video samples are due by March 14. NO EXCEPTIONS. There is no guarantee your film will be included. If you submit early you have a better chance.

If you submit:
*Include the title of the video and director(s) names of the video.
*Include contact information: Name, phone, e-mail, street address.

Please send media on a DVD, mini-DV tape, or VHS tape. If submitting a DVD make a “data disc” with a video file in one of the following formats. If you send a DVD that is “playable” in DVD players then the media needs to be ripped from the DVD and may not be useable for the video project. “”NO”” other tape formats will be accepted. Other video formats may work. Those listed above are the easiest to use.

Video formats:
QuickTime Movie (.mov) *preferred
Windows Media (.wmv)
AVI (.avi)
Image Sequence (animations)

Here are other questions to consider. If you know the answers, please send them along.

What is the frame size? (NTSC 4:3, HD 1440×1080, etc.)
Is it anamorphic 16:9?
What is the frame rate? (29.97, 23.98, etc.)
What are the audio settings rate? (48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, etc.)

Write the start time for the most important moment of the video.
