Just a friendly reminder that your Kickstarter video submissions are due Feb. 28!

We’re looking for very short (a few seconds) videos from as many folx as possible! Details are below.

How to Submit a Video:

  1. Read the logistical notes below!

  2. Take a 5-15 second video of you saying:

    1. Why you like the Misbehavin’ Maidens OR why you’re excited for the new album (or both!)

    2. Your favorite swear word (this probably won’t be on the Kickstarter itself because of content restrictions, but we’d like to make a compilation video for YouTube) (this part is optional)

  3. Send us the video, via google drive or dropbox, to: misbehavinmaidens@gmail.com by Feb. 28.

  4. Fill out this form to give us your name and permission: https://goo.gl/forms/tBFAGxq2KtPcPoHN2

LOGISTICAL NOTES:

  • MOST IMPORTANT ONE: Please turn your phone sideways! You can film this video with a camera, a phone, whatever (high quality is great within reason)—but PLEASE make sure it’s horizontal, like a movie, not vertical, like a selfie.

  • Look for the best possible lighting—brighter is better!

  • Make sure there’s a minimum of background noise.

  • Acceptable formats: 3GP, AVI, MP4 and Quicktime. And don’t make the final over a gig, for the sake of our precious hard drive space.

  • If you’re using Dropbox, please send us a link to the FILE, not the FOLDER, that makes it easier!! Make sure it’s got open permissions.

  • CONSENT is mandatory. Don’t take a video of someone who doesn’t know what’s happening! Please!

  • Don’t send us multiple takes or options, just pick your favorite for each person/group! We trust your judgment!

  • Don’t overthink it! We just want to see your face and hear you talk. You don’t need to launch a full-scale film production. A selfie video of just your face is fine!


(BTW thanks to The Doubleclicks for having this process down to a science so we knew what to ask for and how to ask for it. Go tell them they’re awesome on Twitter.)
