The directions below were also distributed via an announcement in the Oakland Mills High School Student Resources course in Canvas. Directions and a link to upload your video can be found here.
From the video production company about your OMHS graduation video:
1] Video must be less than 15 seconds in duration.
2] Your cap and gown should be worn in the video.
3] Only 10 seconds of video will be used.
4] Audio from the video will not be used from the ceremony. So, there will be no sound used from your video in the ceremony.
5] Please say your full name (first middle last) at the start of the video. This will be used to identify you as well as assist with pronunciation; it will not be used during the ceremony.
6] Please pause for a moment after saying your name and before continuing with your recording.
7] Be sure to orient your device to landscape orientation (not portrait orientation) before you record.
8] Consider lighting conditions. Outdoor lighting is preferred. The lighting source (sun, lamp, etc.) should be in front of you, not behind you.
9] You can find this same information at Student Video Directions.pdf.
From Oakland Mills High School about your graduation video:
11] The deadline to upload your video is Wednesday, May 20.
12] Since 10 seconds of your video will be used for the online ceremony, consider how to use your 10 seconds. You can wave, smile, hold up a sign thanking your family and teachers, etc.
13] Inappropriate content, gestures or imagery will not be permitted, and the presence of any of these elements in videos will cause the video to be rejected.
14] Questions? Please contact Kristin_Anderson-Little@hcpss.org.
We look forward to seeing you shine in our Class of 2020 graduation ceremony on
