Now is the time to show off your campus to current and prospective Quest Scholars! Watch our very own launch videos below to preview what’s in store for the campus video campaign.
With your help, we will showcase your campus to incoming Quest Scholars and QuestBridge applicants.

Video submissions should be sent as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Quest Scholars should contact us if they run into any problems submitting videos.
Video Campaign Rules
By submitting a video for the Video Campaign, you are agreeing to the guidelines listed below:
Video vignettes should be only one to two minutes long.
Video submissions must be original, solely created by you. They can be fun, but should not have inappropriate content or objectionable material. Produce a video that you would be proud to show the director of admissions at your school. If you are having trouble coming up with material, below are some suggestions from the QSN staff.
Secure the verbal or written consent of the participants in your film. For example, do not film a professor without his/her permission.
Music must be original and/or not require any additional clearances from the sponsor. Because of budget constraints, QSN cannot pay for licensed material.
Videos must be formatted in .mpeg4, .mov, .wma, or .avi format.
Video submissions must not contain any personally identifiable information of any person other than yourself without his or her consent. Should you include personally identifiable information about yourself or others in your submission, make sure the people in your video acknowledge and allow such information to be disclosed publicly and be aware that you are solely responsible for any consequences thereof.
Once video submissions have been cleared, the QSN Team reserves the right to use video submissions at the Team's discretion on the website and other media platforms.

Royalty-Free Music Sources
If you are having trouble finding royalty-free music or producing your own original tune, we've compiled a sample list of websites that provide music or links to other websites that host music:
Both videos were edited on iMovie and filmed using the camera that was distributed to all Liaisons. Music from the first promo video was sourced from audionautix.com and the second from iMovie.
Things to Consider
Since videographers might require the use of the chapter camera, Liaisons will develop a camera loan system for their respective campuses, such as shared Google Calendar, etc. Liaisons should ask lendees to fill out the following form to loan the QSN Chapter camera and equipment for a designated amount of time (preferably one day): QSN_Camera _Loan_Form.pdf. Campuses might also have programs where students can borrow media equipment.
