- Make a short video. Aim for about 1 min length, give or take. Say anything you like, keeping in mind the nature of the effort. The only thing we ask is:
- Close your video by raising a glass. It has been pointed out that Johnny Walker Black is Hitchens’ drink, but obviously use what you like.
- Email your video to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use any means you like to send the file, but YouSendIt and WeTransfer are recommended if your regular email doesn’t cooperate. YouSendit.com has minimal registration requirements, and WeTransfer has a 2G capacity and no registration. Speaking of file submission specs:
- Keep the file size as small as is reasonable for now. We don’t know how many submissions we will ultimately get. Quicktime & mov have been offered as desirable submission formats, but obviously the editors will do their best to work with whatever you’re able to turn in.
They’ll craft the clips into a longer video and make all the clips available on a new website, along with reading lists, worthwhile charities to donate to, etc.
I’m not sure what the deadline is, but it’s a sweet gesture worth participating in if you’re a fan.
