Audio

 (

Music, Background audio etc)

Do:

• 

Purchase music from iTunes or another reputable online music stores.

• 

Check that the quality of audio is a minimum of 192kbps (.MP3 format)

• 

Create your own soundscape music (if you have the knowledge – that way it’s unique to you)

Do Not:

• 

Download music directly from videos on YouTube, they contain bad quality audio (while it might sound great on 
your headphones or speakers, it won’t sound good on a larger audio system – P.S. it could also be copyright)

Visuals

 

(powerpoint, videos, backdrops)

Do:

• 

Create videos in 16:9 aspect ratio (widescreen like what you would see on a digital TV)

• 

Minimum resolution of 1280x720 25FPS (720p – HD quality)

• 

Video Format AVI or mp4

• 

Be creative with your content, make it unique and matching your style

• 

Check your spelling and grammar (nothing worse than incorrectly spelling ‘ACVON’)

• 

If created using PowerPoint the presentation MUST be given as a video format.

• 

Once you have finished your PowerPoint presentation (and ensured the timing is correct) export to a video by 
going to file > export > create a video > ‘select’ Presentation Quality’

• 

Provide your PowerPoint presentation without exporting it to a video.

• 

Download a full feature video/anime and ‘claim’ it as your own. (That’s an easy way out, and not what we’re 

• 

looking for – be unique!)
