In order to be considered:
Send us a quick video of yourself (shot head and shoulders) telling us in 60-90 secs about what you love doing most. Your true passion. A passion you can do from your home, your home office or even a cool space where you go to work, create, express.
Start with the following introduction:
Name, age, current city in which you live. Then chat with us about your “passion.” – your blog, your music, your art, your cooking, etc.
We are not looking for fancy pro-quality footage. Shooting with a smartphone will certainly suffice. If using an iPhone be sure to hold it horizontal vs. vertical so that your video is not flipped sideways. Start with your introduction and then tell the camera about your passion or project or work. Roughly 60-90 seconds max. We would then love a second video showing us your space/home in which you work or create. You are welcome to verbally guide us.
Please send two separate videos via email. Kindly name your actual video files with yourname_video1_Fido.mov or .mp4 etc. & yourname_video2_Fido.mov Finally, send us one pic to use for your video cover photo (a jpg would be great). If you have a large file, you can send it us via Wetransfer or Hightail – both free sites and very user friendly.
Deadline to send in your self tapes is Fri., September 11th at 7pm ET. Email to
[email protected] Please title your email with “your name” for FIDO.
