💡 First things first: VIDEO PITCH
The brands will base their decision on whether to work with you or not from your video pitch. So, it has to showcase your best!
IMPORTANT: We have a maximum of 2 video pitch trials; if you do not succeed on the second try, you would have to try again after 2 months.
Short intro about yourself (up to 10s). Record yourself in a medium shot (steady camera in front of you) and speak directly to a camera.
Time for some B-Roll. Include shots representing previously done branded content (physical products only), as well as your hobbies, pets, etc... Imagine it as a short montage of you and your skills on and behind the camera. Overlay this part with a voiceover. NOTE: make sure that your video footage is raw, with no added music/text/watermarks/filters.
End the video in a medium shot, camera in front of you.
Who are you? Introduce yourself.
What are you passionate about? Perhaps you have a partner/pet/kids to film with? Have any cool hobbies or places to film in? Video Pitch is the place to show it off. You can also talk about your experience/passion for creating content for brands. Let the brands know all of the unique qualities that you have as a content creator.
CTA. Give one main reason why brands should choose you.
Here is an example of AWESOME video pitches done by our creators: Philip, Heather, and Mei Lu 🤩
If they can do it, you can too! 🚀 SO, let's do our best to nail this pitch, shall we? 😎
👩💻 OUR EXPECTATIONS
Follow the brief and fulfill all the requirements. Make sure to include all of the 3 specified scenes.
Make sure you shoot your video with a rear-facing camera and in at least 1080p
Make sure to clean your camera lens, shoot in a well-lit place & ensure that the video is not grainy/shadowy, or pixelated. Don't be afraid to use the sun or strategically place household lamps to your advantage.
Ensure that your audio sounds consistent from scene to scene: clear & crispy with no echo, static, or background noises. We expect the direct audio recording to be the exact same quality as the voiceover one. It is advised to use an external microphone. Try to shoot in a furnished or carpeted room to avoid reverberation or just cover yourself with a blanket while recording VO!
☞ Camera Level:
Keep the camera stable and at eye level when filming yourself in order to make it easier for viewers to follow your movements and eye gaze.
It's helpful to keep a distance between you and the camera of your video in order to create a sense of place and intimacy that viewers can relate to. Always keep yourself centered.
☞ Acting/Speaking Skills:
It's important to sound excited and passionate. Make sure not to overdo it: keep your voice at a relaxed volume, but energetic tone.
Your job on Billo is to deliver beautiful raw footage. Avoid text, filters, transitions, social handles, or music.
Choose a non-distracting neutral background. The space around you should be wide enough for the whole frame. Don’t shoot in limited spaces e.g car, bed. Avoid unnecessary objects in the background and clutter.
Once your video is uploaded on the Billo Creator's app, our Talent Manager will review it in 24 business hours.
✅ If the video fits our quality standards, you’ll be approved and ready to apply to tasks straight away.
❗️If your video pitch was rejected - we will reach out to you via email asking for changes & share some useful tips for your second try. Don't forget to check your spam folder 😉
