What stands you out?
  • The Visual Clarity: We would not want to struggle to see your video or hear the sound. Please do not get stuck on quality, though it’d be nice. You do not have to use an expensive camera, in HD, or edited by a film editing pro. A good quality phone video will suffice. This is not a video contest. We only want to test your eloquence and get to know you better
  • Tip: Captivate the reviewer’s attention in the first 5 seconds. The first 5 seconds will determine whether they will keep watching or not
