Every year we make a short video of the Derby to upload to You Tube and our website. A Rotary Only video is… boring. We therefore seek input from the children involved to really make it interesting. And we offer PRIZES to all entrants!
LENGTH: Approx 3 minutes
FORMAT: Suitable for upload to You Tube
CONTENT: Can contain video, slideshows of photos, logos, art work, interviews, voiceovers, music…
Let your imagination run wild!
(and check your choice of music is allowed on YouTube!)
LOCATIONS: School, Practice Days, Scruitineering and drivers safety briefing day
… Where your car goes take a camera/video camera
SPONSORS: Sponsors are important – without them we can’t have a Derby.
The Trusts and your own sponsor(s) provide the money to allow you to race – include their logos and help us promote them.
DEADLINE: Finish it by the end of Term 1 (if doing it at school) or by Friday 10th April (at the latest!), put it on YouTube and send me the link.
If you would prefer to post a copy contact email@example.com for address details and post it so we get it by Friday 10th April 2015
PRIZES: These will be awarded at our Thank You Night in Term 2.
We have two types of logos for you to use. Pick which set you want to use:
