In the description of the video, please provide the names of everyone involved in your production, the production team name if you have one (ours is Bradric Productions). Title and artist for any music you use.
Once the upload is complete, YouTube will provide you with the web address that your video can be viewed from by us and others. Send that url to the McCarty Metro at mccartymetro@gmail.com. Besides the link, provide us the name of the video, info of your staff, actors, etc., and production team name.

Videos must be uploaded on or before Sunday, July 9th at 11:59PM Eastern Time.
Videos cannot contain copyrighted music. Only music you create, own the rights to, or that is public domain and royalty free is permissible.

Q: How will the films be judged?
A: On overall quality. Writing, acting, plot, etc. by non-partial professional movie makers

Q: I don’t have a nice camera. And all I’ve got is Windows Movie Maker/iMovie. Can I still compete?
A: Absolutely! If you have a good script, we don’t care how poor the video quality is. Just do the best with what you have- we want EVERYONE to compete!

Q: Does my film have to be ABOUT the phrase and object I choose?
A: Not at all. As long as the phrase is spoken at some point in the film, and the object is in the camera’s view at some point in the film, you are good!

Q: What kind of music is permissible for inclusion in my film?
A: Either music you created, own the rights to, or public domain, royalty-free music. There are a ton of websites that offer this kind of music for download, completely free. Just because you own a band’s CD does not give you the “rights” to use it in your own production.

(Come back to this page often- it’ll be updated with more FAQs regularly leading up to the event!)

Those are all of the official rules! If you have any further questions, send an email to mccartymetro@gmail.com, and I will reply to you or post it here.
