Video Reel Submission Form








  • Upload your Video Reel to an "unlisted" youtube. Unlisted means your video will not come up in search results or on your channel either. Only those who know the link can view it. When you upload your reel to youtube, change the privacy setting from "public" to "unlisted."
  • If your video reel does not include titles, please upload a .pdf with the segments outlined in details. Use minutes and seconds to indicate each section. For individuals, include full names and character names.
