Create a test video and upload it to YouTube
You can use your choice of video equipment and software as long as it produces a respectable result. Most cell phones, tablet devices and still cameras have sufficient video quality, however audio quality varies widely. Test your available options and choose the solution with best audio quality and minimal technical effort needed. For example, recording, editing and submitting your audition as a single video using an iPad 2 (or newer) with iMovie can produce a reasonably good quality audition and be comfortably completed in less than an hour.
Tip: Before recording your entire audition, you may want to record and upload a test video.
In the Subject line: last name, first name, instrument, and the month and year of the audition.
Then, in the body of the email, include:
Check the due date for auditions -- this is not a postmark deadline. Your audition must have arrived by this deadline.
Your DVD must be in a generic format. It can either be rendered as a standard video DVD, playable in a generic DVD player, or can be a universally readable (mac or PC compatible, finalized) containing generic video files. It should not be in the form of a project for your video software.
Label both the DVD case and the disc with the same information as an email submission.Do not put anything else on the label.
