Content
Video interpretation of a scene or a passage out of a book. Preferably fiction.
Length
Two minutes is ideal. The length is flexible, but we would discourage anything more than three minutes.
Style
Think music videos, interpretative.
Music
Absolutely, but make sure that you have permission to use the music, otherwise we might not be able to showcase the video in the future. For the time being, consider using original music... also known as using your own or your friend's music.
The Reading
GetLit is ultimately about the book-- find a short passage that is both filmic and that represents the text. Record a recitation of that passage.
Language
Recordings of international fiction are accepted. If a translation can be done, please send one. We can post it in the "excerpt" page.
International
We'd encourage international participation. We would like to showcase work internationally.
Book Rights
Contact us, and we'll get try to permission. No guarantees.
Viewing formats
At this time, we're posting everything to quicktime and windows media player. Soon we will be offering alternative resolutions and viewing formats.
Decency
We're not going to discourage profanity, but we will absolutely not broadcast anything deemed pornographic, ill-suited, or overly offensive.
