Join CYT TV!

Have you ever dreamed of hosting your own TV show? CYT TV is looking for video submissions from vibrant, fun, and talented, CYT students, leaders, parents, and more! If you have something to share with the CYT community that teaches a skill or offers encouragement, then you can make a video! Videos will still go through a screening process to be determined if it’s eligible for broadcast.

VIDEO CRITERIA

Here is the video criteria we’re looking for.
  • Videos must be of one subject at a time. For example, don’t try and do a vocal warm up, an acting exercise, AND a worship session all in ONE video. Those would need to be three separate videos.
  • Your video content should be thought through and planned (don’t just try and wing it). 
  • Make sure that you speak clearly and intentionally (don’t talk too fast), that the lighting is sufficient, and you are visually showing what you are doing, to the best of your ability. 
  • Use your phone, computer, or camera to film yourself. When using your phone, turn it horizontally, so that your video would fill the entire screen. 
  • We recommend uploading a video in MP4 or MOV format.
  • HAVE FUN!

VIDEO CONTENT

Here are some content ideas we are looking for. Remember, the more specific, the better. Teach a specific skill in one of the following categories. 
  • Workshops (in acting, singing, and dancing, comedy, improv, acting through song, etc.) 
  • Tutorials (such as makeup, props, DIY, breaking down a monologue, etc.)
  • Warm ups (vocal, dance, exercises, etc.)
  • Tips and tricks (Auditions, callbacks, cold reading, etc.) 
  • Devotions (leading worship, encouraging verses, etc.)
  • Alumni News (hey CYT Alumni tell us about life after CYT!)
  • My CYT Story (share a personal story of how CYT has impacted your life!)
  • FUN! (games, trivia, story time, etc.)
  • Other (if you have a creative idea, go for it)

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

SAMPLE: VIDEO INTRO AND ENDING SCRIPT


Here is a short script that we would like you to follow for the beginning of your video and the end.

VIDEO INTRO
Hello, and welcome to CYT TV. My name is (name) and I am a (student, leader, alumni, etc.)  from CYT (Branch Name). Today I’m going to be (fill in a brief intro to what you’ll be teaching, demonstrating, or doing).

VIDEO ENDING
Thank you so much for tuning in to CYT TV. Bye!

Yes: I am a dreamer.

For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.
