VIVA youth! VIVA Arashi!

If this is your second project, you already know the drill but there are some surprises for you as well!

  • Note 2: If you would like to join another participant/group from the same city, please mention it in your application.


---------------------------------------

Stage 2 Posting final instructions
(within the application period)

We will create a separate entry for the final instructions.
For FUNKY, we did different kinds of interaction between the dancers.
For GUTS!, we decided to do a level-up and create a PV! This means we're doing both a dance cover and a vocal cover!

Please note that submitting your vocals is optional. To take part in the project, you only need to submit your dance videos.
However, it will be great if we mash up the vocal covers of different dancers to create our own youth anthem!

For videos, we will be asking you to film a couple of versions to make it look like a proper PV (e.g. dance version, closeup lip-synching + other activities).

DRESS CODE
As we want to make it look like Arashi's PV, you can choose out of the following options:
- dress up as a teacher/student (use GUTS! videos below for some inspiration: e.g. ties, red checkered items, blazers, glasses, anything goes!)
- use sports-related outfits or uniforms

You can also use some school/sports items in your video. It's up to you!

All kinds of discussions and brainstorming are more than welcome. This will help us to define the final PV instructions. Please use this post to share your ideas.

---------------------------------------

Stage 3 Filming and video/audio submissions
Deadline: September 30

You'll have at least a several months to film your video (and record your audio if you're submitting both).
Please do not film the video before the final instructions are posted.
There will be guidelines to follow and certain activities that you'll need to include in your video.

The setting and the number of locations is entirely up to you. We encourage you to dance wherever you feel comfortable, in the house, at school, on the streets, it will be great to have a variety of places to add dynamism to the video. You can opt for indoor filming, however, as this is a global project, it would be really nice if you could film outdoors with a famous landmark in your city / some beautiful scenery, or at any school/sports related locations.
Both for indoor and outdoor videos, we recommend putting your camera on a tripod for a steady and clear shot.

For audios, we'll be sending all of you a backing track with a higher pitch to make it easier for you to sing. Please use this track to record your vocal cover.

Basic requirements (will be confirmed in the final instructions)

Aspect ratio: 16:9
Video quality: MQ and higher
Required video format: MP4
Required audio format (for vocals): .mp3

Recommended file-hosting service: MEGA, Google Drive

---------------------------------------

Stage 4 PV editing
Period: as soon as submissions close

Aru (Ukraine) who created the video for our FUNKY project will be joining us as the video editor for GUTS!

---------------------------------------

Stage 5 Uploading the PV

The PV will be uploaded to YouTube (Vimeo / other streaming services) as soon as the editing is complete.
