The idea for #NextGenHello came from some people at Next Generation (a series of masterclasses and workshops which form part of Salford Media Festival) when it was realised that the festival coincided with World Hello Day.
The NextGenHello project is being run by a group of students and staff currently at University of Salford. The full list of people involved can be found on our credits page.
What will you do with our videos?
Once you have made an Instagram video and and tagged it with #NextGenHello, we’ll be able to see it and find it. All the videos will be listed on our contributions page with a name and link so that people can find and watch them. As time goes on we’ll be downloading all of your videos and after 12 noon on 19th November we’ll be editing them together into one big long lovely film. Hopefully we will be able to use every video we have, since we don’t yet know how many we will be getting.
The film will be shown on YouTube – a link to the channel page will be added shortly, along with the time the film goes live.
The film will be also screened at the MINA Mobile Film Symposium (Auckland, NZ on 21st November) Salford Media Festival’s Next Generation: (Thursday 21 and Friday 22 November at University of Salford at MediaCityUK)
What can I put in my videos?
Your video is your creation, so it can be as simple or as complicated as you like. Of course, we don’t want any inappropriate content showing up, so please try and keep it clean!
Also remember that if you’re under-age, or filming someone who is under-age, to get parental permission before uploading your video.
How many videos can I make?
As many as you like – especially if you have lots of friends who want to share their own greetings. The more the better.
I made a video, but I’ve realised I don’t want to be in the film after all. What can I do?
If you’ve made a video, but decided you don’t want to be in our film, please contact us using the email listed in our Contact page. Let us know your instagram username, when you made the video and if possible a URL for the video, and we’ll make sure we don’t use it.
