It’s that time of year again and we’re super excited here at Swish to be once again running our annual 25 days of Swishmas!

WHAT DID WE DO LAST YEAR?
Here’s an idea of what we did last year – however, we know how impatient everyone is nowadays so all we need this time is your best CHORUS.

 

WHAT DO WE NEED?
A Chorus or approximately a 15-30 second video of your best/craziest/lavish performance of a Christmas Themed song, musical or soundbite. Costume, make up, filters – anything goes. You can either sing or lip sync or just dance we don’t mind! (Portrait format please – just hold your phone and shoot vertically) You can choose from one of our examples or choose your own – it’s totally up to you 🙂

WHEN DO WE NEED IT BY?
Deadline is November 28th 2019 at 12pm

HOW DO I GET IT TO YOU?
Whatsapp please – Our Swish 24/7 number is: 07936 779788 (we won’t publish any surnames but please pop your child’s name in the message so that we can correctly label all files)

HOW MANY TIMES CAN I ENTER?
As many as you like as long as it’s different each time. We can’t promise to use anyone more than once but we will do our very best.

WHERE WILL THE VIDEO BE POSTED?
All videos will be posted on the main Swish Facebook Page, the class facebook groups and our website.

FILMING GUIDELINES:
1) Use lots of natural light but make sure it’s behind you and not behind the subject matter. Positioning your back to a window is a great way to ensure your child’s face is nice and bright.
3) Don’t zoom – just capture the full frame. We can zoom in if we need to.
4) Keep it short – a chorus is plenty
5) Please film in PORTRAIT ONLY
6) Audio: If you are singing Live then place the music source further away from your child than the camera so that the track isn’t overbearing on the recording.

WHAT ABOUT CHRISTMAS DAY?
Our favourite clip/clips will be shown on 25th December 🙂
