Gear Up for Sport is back for 2022! And to be in with a chance of winning a share of £3,000 for your youth sports team, we’re asking you to submit a short Team Spirit video clip.
This year, there are three cash prizes up for grabs for the videos that best showcase the spirit of their team:
So, to win cash for your club kitty, we need you to give it your all. Remember, you have complete creative freedom, and winners will be original, funny, creative, inspiring, fun, or all of the above!
The winning videos will be the ones that stand out, so get creative! Use effects when taking your video to make it look quirky and fun.
Do some of your team members have special skills? Show them off! Action shots work really well, too. (But remember; don’t try anything risky, we don’t want anyone to get hurt!)
Video sharing apps are becoming more and more popular and provide an easy way to create a short video with creative visual tricks. Use their transition features to create a clever video sequence that stands out from the crowd.
GoPros are great for taking a time-lapse, but you don’t need specialist equipment – most smartphones also have a time-lapse feature within their camera settings. You just need to ensure that you have accurate and reliable shutter triggering. One-second intervals should be plenty for a moving team shot!
Think about how your team are positioned in the shot; is there something clever you can do to make a really interesting video? Perhaps you could try and make the shot look symmetrical or play with the perspective by shooting from above, or below?
