Tips for Making an Awesome Video:

  • SHOW something – don’t just make a video of you talking into the camera in front of a brick wall. Show yourself doing something (hiking, eating a cookie at the Grove House, doing back flips on the Mounds, etc.)
  • HAVE FUN! Our judges won’t be looking for the video with the highest production quality, but rather the videos where the entrant used creativity and had a blast during the video making process!

Fun Video Examples: For inspiration, check out the following videos created by students at Centenary and Pitzer Colleges:
