SOUNDBOX 2021 Showcase - June 1st Deadline

SOUNDBOX Virtual Performance - On-Going

Content Guidelines

  • Video output is to be well lit and should not appear dark on-screen creating difficulty in seeing the features of the subjects in the video.

  • All shots are to be clearly focused and well framed. Close-ups should focus attention, not distract the viewer.

  • Video output is to be stable, not shaky. A tripod should be used whenever possible to reduce "camera shake." If tripod use is not possible, camera shake should be very minimal.

  • NO titles or other text should be added to the video. 

  • NO additional graphics or animations should be added.

  • NO fade-in/fade-outs, effects, etc.

  • NO unauthorized music.

We will not accept works containing profanity or content that contains extreme or disturbing content. We require that videos do not include commercial logos, messages, or URLs directing viewers to external businesses.
