Submit a Video

Thank you for your interest in submitting a video for our Buffalearn short courses! Here are some tips and directions on how to make a fun and exciting short course for the city of good neighbors!

About the Video

The video should be between 5-10 minutes and can all be shot on your iPhone, Android, iPad, tablet or computer. Once completed, you can upload the video using the instructions below. Be no more than 5-7 feet away from your device when you record and be sure your camera is taking a horizontal video.

  1. Tip #1: For the video, make sure the background of where you will be doing your activity/ lesson per say are cool colors (blue, yellow, white, tan) and the area is well-lit so people can see you.
  2. Tip #2: Try to keep the noise levels to the minimum in the background so people watching can hear you loud and clear.
  3. Tip #3: Try to take your video in one take as much as possible! If you are unable to do so, that is okay! We can combine the takes together to upload onto our channel.
  4. Tip #4: Please keep your video content professional, clean, and upbeat. These videos will be viewed by people of all ages and we want people to leave your video engaged and energized to tell others about your short course!
