Influential – The Update

Online submissions via webcam are now being accepted! This is a big step for the documentary as it goes from theoretical to actual.

There are some minor notes to make. Be sure to verify your microphone is being picked up. After agreeing to let the site access your camera and mic, do a test recording. As simple as hitting Record, saying a few words and clicking Finish. Once you’ve verified your mic is being recorded, hit Retake and do your actual recording. Otherwise you can specify which mic is being accessed. (thank you to @puremvc for the heads up)

On the submission form, I am using a very large database for location. Consequently, when you choose a Country, then a Region, the amount of cities returned could be quite large and take a while for you to find yours. I will be implementing a filtering system into the form so you can type a couple of letters in to narrow the cities list down some. (thank you to @mykola for the suggestion)

Lastly, I will be adding an upload feature so you can use saved video files. Hopefully this won’t take too long to implement as I am sure some of you in the video industry would want to make your own superclean, pretty submissions. In the meantime, you can email hugh [at] influentialmovie [dot] com and I can submit on your behalf, if that’s the case.

No end of thanks to Influxis for the continuing support!

Please spread the word and let’s get as many people submitting as possible!
