This Project is for you to create 8 Showcase Videos. 1 for each Day: FEB 21st - Feb 28th.

These Videos are ALL intended to be SHORT 30 seconds to 1 Minute.

STEP 1: GOTO [login to view URL]
STEP 2: Search for Facts based on the Date (Feb 21, Feb 22, Feb 23, ... Feb 28)
STEP 3: Pick 1 FACT For each DAY that you will Create a short video for.

Submit ALL 8 videos as part of 1 Submission (not multiple)


COVER: Each Video must have Cover Image (for use on YouTube).

THEME: BlackFacts Fact-Of-The-Day Showcase for: {Date}

BRANDING: (Using attached Logo/ICON files where appropriate)
1 - We want our ICON to be in the Upper Right Corner (small) throughout the Video.
2 - The COVER of the Video should include 3 Items:
2a - The Title/Subject of the Video
2b - Some relevant Image as the background
2c - Our LOGO (small and at the bottom of the page)

Note: The Cover is important because this is going to be posted on social media and so people seeing the cover with know right away WHAT the video is about based on the Title and background image (our logo does not need to be prevalent)

3 - The BACK COVER (last image) should be Our Logo (large) and Call to action "Learn More at [login to view URL]"

1 - Readability is VERY important for these videos.
2 - This is intended for a Social Media Campaign
2a - Remember they will be viewed on a Smartphone primarily.
2b - Eye catching images and transitions with callouts that are easy to read is more important than a lengthy message.
3 - Larger Text Size without too many words and with color or clouded grey/white (50% transparent) background for the text so the text is EASY to read even when overlapping the images.
3a - Kwanzaa Principal (In English and Africa)
3b - Description of its Meaning or Background as it relates to Kwanzaa
4 - Even if you Start with the image and they transition the text over the image, the text must be large enough without too much information to be overwhelming to the viewer.
5 - Better to do multiple images with short messages on each than 1 image with a long paragraph of text.
6 - The idea is to share the IMPORTANT points and then go to the next concept.. They can get the details by going to the site.
