we were contacted by someone asking for help on creating two videos, one of which will be broadcasted on the air, on an NBC affiliate.
THE FIRST ONE: this is the promo that will be aired to generate buzz.
- we can’t mention the word “community”, names of characters or the cast. “greendale” is fine though!
- we’re trying to go for something like the old greendale commercial, so you can use variations or the exact line from that.
- make sure you’re filming just one line on a nice camera (try your best for this, just make sure you don’t use your webcam) with good lighting!
THE SECOND ONE: this is another fanvideo, so if you didn’t get into the first one (or want to be in it again), here’s your chance! last time it was seen by the cast but we hope it’ll get even more buzz.
the main thing we’re trying to do is promote season 5 so maybe reference previous seasons, dan harmon, anything goes.
HOW: email your video to firstname.lastname@example.org (that’s two ys!). make sure the extension is .avi, .mpeg or .mp4 if you’re sending the file. you can also share it with us on google drive or dropbox by sending the link. make sure you include “1” for the promo and “2” for the fanvideo in the subject title of your email, and your url so we can give credit to you on this blog.
*of course, you can do one, the other or both, though not everyone will be able to get into the 1st one since the time limit is 30 seconds, so that’ll be first come first serve.
**there’s no exact deadline yet, but we’re just going to say it’s about 3 weeks from today, to leave one week for editing so we can get it in in time for the season 5 premiere.
thank you so much for your continued support! this campaign would be nothing without you guys, we’re incredibly happy that community’s fandom is this great and dedicated.
