What do I need?
You will need a video camera (or smart phone) and another person to film you (unless you want to set the camera up on a tripod and film yourself).
No need to make this look professional by any means, but please do not hold the camera yourself. Make sure we can SEE and HEAR you clearly. Frame the camera from just above the top of your head to your chest.
If you are using a phone for filming, please make sure you shoot it horizontally
How long should my video be?
NO MORE THAN 2 minutes of unedited footage. (We will stop it at the 2-minute mark)
What formats will you accept:
No music, no cuts, no voice-overs, and no fancy transitions – raw footage only please – We suggest using one of the following formats: .MOV, .MP4, QuickTime, .AVI, MPG, MPEG, 3GP, WMV
What do I include in the video?
We want to get to know you- see and feel your energy. Share with us why you want to be on PYRAMID and what makes you a unique individual. Have fun and be YOU!
Tips of what to include:
1. Introduce yourself by telling us your name and where you live.
2. What do you do for work and/or to keep busy? What hobbies do you have?
3. How would people who know you describe you?
4. Why do you love the game Pyramid and want to play?
5. What will you do with the money if you won on the show?
After I make my video, then what?
You can drag and drop your video in the bottom portion of the online application (link perhaps) and upload there (we prefer this so your entire submission is together).
You can email your video submission via the website: https://www.wetransfer.com/
Be sure to send us an email that says that it is coming. Make sure the subject line reads: “VIDEO: FIRST & LAST NAME – CITY, STATE.
(Subject line example: VIDEO: Jane Smith – Miami, FL)
In the body of the email, include your name and contact information.
(Body of email example: Jane Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org, 555-555-5555)
If you do not send the above information along with your wetransfer, we cannot be sure to match your application with your video, and therefore your application WILL NOT be reviewed until video has been received.
