Parade

For 2021 we will be planning a virtual parade to recognize your organizations and celebrate our 125th birthday.

Stay tuned here for more information, and if you are a prior year's attendee – be on the lookout for our emails. 

Submission Guide

Uploading to Dropbox

Dropbox is our handy little tool to allow you to send video files directly to our editor via the file request feature. Simply click the upload button and select your video files to submit them.

Orientation

Horizontal or vertical? Landscape or Portrait? Both orientations are acceptable, horizontal may be preferred to allow for social distancing, but we’ll be able to edit either format into the final cut.

Parade Performance

Since this is a parade, let's all try to walk the same way across the screen from right to left. It’s important to enter from off camera, and to exit off camera completely. Framing would be preferred to have both your head and feet included in the shot.

File Format

Almost every video file you may have we can use thanks to modern software. But if possible, please submit high resolution (minimum 1080p) video files in either .MP4 or .MOV format.

Lighting

The more light the better! If indoors, please turn on as many lights as you can to help show your smiling faces. We may be able to brighten the video after you’ve submitted it to us, but we make no guarantees.

Stabilized Footage

Any tripod would work, even if you’re leaning your phone or device against a flat surface to prevent any wiggles from holding the camera by hand. Steady hands are helpful!

Please contact cliff.in.ladner@gmail.com with any questions about submitting your Virtual May Days Parade video.
