How To Submit Your Video | Guidelines
You are required to record a two-minute video clip of yourself stating reasons you should be chosen for the BBN season 5.
After getting your video ready, you are to fill the online registration form and then upload the clip.
Below are the guidelines for the video.
- The video must be at most 2 minutes in recording time.
- The 2 minutes video should end with the complete sentence “I would make perfect housemates because……… “
- Avoid all forms of filters, copyrighted music, special effects, background music etc. It should be natural.
- State your Name, Email and Phone Number in the video audibly.
- When describing yourself, endeavour to mention real-life examples. A good story entices the organisers.
- Big Brother Naija Organisers want to know you well, be as natural as, state how you will interact in the house and how your life experiences will help you win.
- Speak loudly and be audible.
- No need for making a skit or putting on any costume. BBN want to meet the real you.
- State your personality, especially where you are from and your region—state how these will help you win the competition.
- Mention your jobs, your skills, what you do. These are all part of your personality.
- Hold your camera steady.
- If you are shooting indoors, make sure the room is well lit and sufficient lights in front of your face.
- Shoot your video during the day.
- Avoid background noise. An ambient place will do the drill.
- Shoot a landscape (horizontal) style, not portrait (vertical).
- Your video may be shown on TV. Shoot the video exactly how you see on TVs.
Another tip I have noticed is, if possible have a little fan base, they may ask.
Good luck, I’ll be happy if you get in.
