Happy Friday!

 

Since putting up the RM100 reward for a Merdeka video entry for you 8Share users: bit.ly/8ShareMerdekaContest,

Some of you have asked me the following:

 

“I need ideas!”

“How do I create the video?”

“Where do I begin?”

“How do I add in the song? This is too hard!”

 

Well, the reward is still ongoing, so I’ve decided to write this post to help answer all your questions.

So, have no worries! Let’s do this step-by-step. I will also give you some video ideas to help get your creative juices pumping.

 

First of all, do remember these important details:

  • Theme of the video: “Di Sini Lahirnya Sebuah Cinta”
  • Length of the video: Not less than 1 minute and not more than 3 minutes
  • Song to download: Warisan (Downloadable here: http://bit.ly/MerdekaVideoDownload)
  • Submission to 8Share ends on the 6th of September, 11.59pm

 

Let’s begin with the easy part. IDEAS~
