Why Create an Original Video?
This option will allow FTVM Majors to say goodbye, showcase their skills, learning, and creativity, and foster a more personalized community-based celebration to commemorate their BIG day!
Please note that if you plan to submit a video, you still must fill out a portion of the senior tribute form, found here.
What Guidelines Must I Follow in Creating a Video?
1) Video MUST not exceed 30 seconds. This will enable all majors who wish to participate to be able to do so.
2) You may work with another FTVM graduate and combine your (maximum allotted) time of up to 30 seconds (i.e. if two people work together, you have up to 60 seconds; three, up to 90 seconds; etc.,..); HOWEVER, if you choose to meet your friends in person, you must adhere to the Covid restrictions and guidelines in your local area regarding distancing and masking.
3) You may use any device and/or equipment available to you to in creating/recording your work (Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, the FTVM equipment room is not able to lend gear for this project). Our studio staff will convert your file in order to integrate it into the processional (and add your name and major/minor in a text overlay). Please upload your final version, labeled clearly with your first and last name, to the Dropbox link below (titled "Submit Videos HERE"). Videos must be submitted by April 5, 2021.
Kindly note, while we are encouraging creativity and originality, please remember to consider your audience and the formal University platform upon which this tribute will air. FTVM's goal is to celebrate each of you in a positive, professional, and respectful manner.
1) Communicating your future plans by creating a trailer for your future?
2) Using Tik-Tok as a inspiration to create a fun-filled goodbye?
3) Creating a spin off on a "collegiate top ten list" -- or focusing on recreating a favorite FTVM memory?
4) ANIMATING your goodbye?
5) Creating a voiceover to communicate a personal/inspirational message over a montage of more abstract cinematographic work?
6) Thanking or providing a "shout out" to significant groups of people who have helped to craft and support your FTVM experience -- or offering advice to current majors?
