Calling all commander and officer characters! We need your help to put together a short video for Rebels Reads. There is an extremely tight turn around on this project!


What is Rebels Reads?
On November 14th, 2020, Rebel Legion will host a Facebook webathon to raise money for UNICEF’s education fund. The webathon will feature panels, interviews with Star Wars authors, and original content created by Rebel Legion members.

Full details are here:
http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=114946

What is needed?
We need people to wear their GSC costume and record a video of themselves being handed a Star Wars book, reading it, and then passing another one along. These will then be edited to create a cohesive video.

Video Requirements
Videos should:
    -Be Landscape Orientation
    -Have either a plain background (black preferred) or one with no visible non-Star Wars branding (You can sit cozily on your couch, but that Trek or Avengers poster on the wall behind you or Groot Funko on the shelf can’t be visible.)
    -Be wearing your GSC eligible costume (officer characters)
    -Book passed to you from offscreen from your right at the beginning
    -Book passed along to your left at the end


Who can participate?
Any person with a Rebel Legion approved officer or commander costume! Generic officer? Holdo? Cassian? Awesome! We want everyone!
    Cassian
    Hoth Luke
    TFA/Briefing Room/Hoth Leia
    Antilles
    Holdo
    Ackbar
    Mothma
    Poe
    Raddus
    TROS Rose
    Endor Officers/Madine
    Hoth/Endor Han
    Resistance Officers
    Connix
    Rebel Fleet Officers/Antilles
    Rebel High Command/Dodonna
    ROTJ or TROS Lando
    TROS Finn
    Hoth Officers
    Yavin Operations Officers
    Clone Commanders

We would love to see any and all other officer characters you have participate!!


What should my video be of?
We’d like the videos to remind people of the feeling of getting lost in a story. Don’t be afraid to hold a cup of coffee or sit down and curl up with a stuffed Yoda on the couch. (Just remember no non-Star Wars branding in the shot!) Maybe you are handed the book, start reading, lean up against a wall lost in the book, and distractedly pass another along without stopping reading. Be creative! Maybe you read one of the picture books to your stuffed bantha. Ideally we would like two books to be used, one passed to you that you read, and keep reading or hold your place with your finger or similar as you pass another off the screen, but it's ok if you want to use one book. Tablets/Nooks etc. may also be used- just pull up the image of a book cover and show that on screen. If you need a Star Wars book cover to hide another book and can’t find one, let us know. The idea is a Galaxy of Stories- so any Star Wars book you have will work.

We will be adding sound, so don’t worry about audio.

What direction do I hold my phone?
Hold your phone in landscape or horizontally.



Where do I send the video?
Videos or links to videos may be emailed to: rlgalacticstrategiccommand@gmail.com

If you have trouble because of file size, send an email to that address, and I'll send you a link to upload them to a google drive folder.

When is the deadline?
We need the videos by November 8th in order to have time to edit them together.

EDIT- Example videos courtesy of Jananichole:

(Sorry for how close I am in the second video! Don’t make my mistake XD.)

Thank you, and Godspeed Rebels!

Note: Participation in this video will count as the equivalent of two troops for the Officer Training Corps Program. Submission of other requested videos or participation in base videos in your GSC costume will count as an additional troop.

Let’s say handed to your actual right at the beginning and passed offscreen to your left? Clarified in OP. Thanks- good catch!

Could you clarify if we are supposed to read out loud? And it's okay to show the cover of the Star Wars book? I understood that we could not read aloud or show Star Wars books because of LFL copyrights.

Answer to the question about sound is here:

This is a no audio submission. Smile I've added a sentence to clarify this on the OP.


Answer to the LFL copywrite question:

Yes, you may show book covers if they are Star Wars books. We *want* the covers visible. This is an LFL approved event and the authors of many of these books will be participating in the event.

Yay! An example video is a possibility, but won't be right away. (It's Halloween, and family time tonight.) I'll see if I can get one put together before the Virtual Sewing Day tomorrow.

Yuppers! We accept that costume as a secondary detachment, so totally fine to use. Smile
