HalloweeM 44½: A WeeM-Away
October 30 – November 1, 2020
Participate in the Virtual Costume Parade at WeeM!
You’ll be able to watch the Costume Parade, including your submitted costume video on Friday, October 30th as it is streamed on Discord as well as chatting about it.
Submitting Your Costume Video(s)
Now that you’ve created your video(s), simply fill out the Costume Parade Video Entry form. The form will let you upload your video. Fill out separate forms if you have multiple videos like for other family members. Please complete everything no later than Sunday, October 25th, but, if possible, earlier to give our Videomaster time to create the final video of all the submitted costume videos including yours.
Do not use Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, or any other service that prevents us from downloading and saving your video.
The form requires you to indicate whether you are over 18. If this is a group costume and any member of your group is under the age of 18, please check "No" so your video precedes the adult videos, some of which may not be suitable for younger audiences. The video needs to be submitted by an adult (for the proper permission to use it). Answering "under 18" adds a "Parent or guardian consent" section (which also tells us to which section the video belongs).
You can submit a separate form and video for each of your children, if so desired.
Just e-mail the link to your video after you’ve saved in the cloud. Videos are too big to attach to an e-mail, and therefore many methods have evolved to allow you to upload such large files and share them with others via links.
If you’ve done this before, then just upload your video using whatever method you’ve used before and share it with firstname.lastname@example.org or include the link to it in an e-mail . That includes any file share app (OneDrive, Box, DropBox, SendAnywhere, WeTransfer, Samsung LinkShare, etc) you are comfortable using.
If you haven’t, see the details associated with the questions posted below that best describes your situation.
iPhone/iPad/Mac users should share using Mail Drop (via iCloud). See Apple’s support page.
If you’ve got a Google account, your easiest option may be Google Photos. Google offers quite a bit of cloud storage for free, so uploading a short video shouldn’t be an issue for most people.
Save your video in Google Photos. In Google Photos, both the browser version and the app, just select it and click on the share icon. You’ll see "Create link" (in a pop-up window if using a browser or at the bottom if using the app). In the browser version, you’ll see the "Create link to share" confirmation pop-up where you click the "Create Link" button and the next pop-up allows to to copy the generated link. Then paste the link into the e-mail you’ll send. In the app, it will create the link and show you the apps you can use to send it. Pick email and when your email app opens, it will have added the link into the email's text for you. Enter email@example.com as the sender address.
Consider making the video "unlisted" and include the link to it in your e-mail .
