Cudas 2018 Slide Show Submissions.
Hello Cudas Community.
The 2018 season is in now in full swing. What better time for parents and swimmers to take amazing photos and videos of team activities for submission to the annual End of Season Dinner Slideshow presentation.
Please send photos of your kids, teammates, volunteer parents and the coaches captured in their full-on Cuda-style while at meets, pep rallies, practices and post-meet celebrations.
Send your submissions as attachments to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no sign in or any need to register. I will send out a link soon so parents and kids can view the photos and videos on our Google site as they start coming in.
This year we hope to use more video in the presentation. Please follow a few guidelines for video submissions:
1.Video should be shot in "landscape" format- so if shooting with a smartphone orient the phone horizontally, not vertically.
2. Video files can get very large so please limit each video sequence to around thirty seconds in length. High-resolution files are best (most cameras shoot in 1080p) as the slideshow will be shown on a large screen. Please don't send files of full-length heats- rather try to capture the best moments at the start and finish, closeups of the summers in mid-swim and after swimming- be creative and judicious.
3. Please help by shooting video that may include the famous team chants, pep rally themes, body art and parades, also shots of coaches working with the swimmers. This year I'd love to try a sequence of video and photos of swimmers in their pre-swim warmup routines, and in the last seconds before the starting gun goes off.
Generally speaking you can send as many photos and videos as you'd like and we will need tons, but try to edit down your submissions to keep them unique, so don't send in your whole set if there are many identical shots. The goal is to get all of the team members in the show.
Please send any questions or comments to Geoff Turner (Lorenzo's Dad) at the email@example.com email, and please include the swimmers' names and any info you'd like with your submissions.
