Making the video

3. No complex editing or professional film is required. It can be a simple video shot with a smartphone or a camera.
4. As far as possible only the applicant should be seen in the video. If others are helping with the instrument, holding something etc., that is acceptable.
5. While there can be animations in the film, a completely animated film will not be accepted
6. There should be no voice-over / another person speaking on behalf of the applicant/machine voice.

Hosting and sharing the video

The video can be hosted on any platform (ex. Youtube, Vimeo etc.) or on any cloud server(ex. Google Drive, Dropbox etc.). Do make sure that the video remains available there till the results are announced.

The focus is the concept and communication. The video will be used only for shortlisting and will not be shared with anybody except with the express consent of the applicant.
