Guidelines on recording and submitting:

    • Save files as .mp4 or .mov
    • Minimum resolution: 1280 x 720
    • Max file size: 1GB
    • No graphics (logos, names/titles, etc.) - we’ll edit all the Hort Hints and include those elements for
    • No music - we’ll add music when we edit
    • Shoot horizontally - using your phone is just fine
    • Make sure there’s no weird/unsightly stuff in the background of your video
    • Sometimes it is good to film in a slightly shady spot, so the sun doesn’t make you squint or wash out the video
    • If your hint includes a demo, it’s ok to edit the segments together (you talking, then the demo) or we can do it
      for you
