Submitting Your Video
We won't be asking you to upload for a while but here's some tips just now.
For a successful upload, you're going to need a few things: a laptop or desktop computer, headphones or earphones, and a mobile device - both Android and iPhone will work.
You should have these already but you will need the tracks and the lyrics
For each song, click the link to download and print lyrics.
Download the track and lyrics for Light Up
Hopefully you will have been practicing singing with headphones/earphones but practice some more. You can try and play the video with the lyrics on the screen and sing along with it.
STEP 3 – Recording your Voice
You will need two devices, one to play the music as you listen through headphones/earphones/earbuds and one to record your performance.
Set up one device to record your performance. Your camera must be in landscape (see picture below) and be positioned to capture your performance. This may take more than one attempt.
Try and choose a room without too much echo so carpets and curtains help dampen any sound or echo.
With your headphones/earphones on listen to the backing track and when you’re ready sing along while recording your voice on the second device. You may want to practice this a few times.
Make sure that you are only recording your own voice singing and not the backing track.
You can if you want just submit your voice video (see Step 5 below on how to submit)
STEP 4 – Recording your moves
You can just do what you did for Step 3 above and record your dance moves with headphones/earphones/earbuds on. But if you want to show off your dance moves without the headphones/earphones/earbuds then follow this step.
Again you will need two devices, one to play the backing track and one to record your dance moves. This time we don’t want you to sing.
Set up the devices as before. Your camera must be in landscape and positioned to capture your performance. As before this may take more than one attempt
With the backing track (the track without vocals) playing perform your dance routine. If it helps you can mouth the words but we don’t want you to sing on this one.
