Now Accepting Your

DUE MAY 15, 2017

Have some fun and pre-film a shout out to your guests on your big day. While you are outside lining up for the procession, we’ll show all the shout out videos to the audience inside the Bren Center where your loved ones can hear and see you thank them for their support. If you want to participate, simply follow these steps by May 15:

1.      Find a quiet space with minimal background noise. Feel free to be creative, or a simple smile and "thank you" to loved ones is just as appreciated.

2.      Record your own (no more than) 10-second selfie video. IMPORTANT: turn your phone to film the video in landscape mode (wider rather than taller). If you have the capability to adjust video settings on your phone or camera, use 1080p at 30 frames per second (720p is acceptable) - if you don't know how, that’s okay...send us what you record.

2.      Name the file with your program and name (as in: FEMBA John Jones)

3.       By May 15, 2017, transfer the file to us using the free service at www.WeTransfer.com (there’s a phone app, too): On the screen, click on the “+ Add files” button. For “Friend’s email,” use brightfuture@merage.uci.edu. Then type in your email address where it asks. Click on the “Transfer” button.  Watch for a confirming email from us within the next three working days – email us if you don’t receive confirmation.

We’ll compile all of these videos into one long one to show to the audience inside the Bren Center while you grads will be preparing for the processional outside the Bren Center.

Limit one up-to-10 second video per graduate. All videos will be reviewed for content. We reserve the right not to use any video that is too long or is deemed inappropriate for any reason, without notification.
