Appendix  A:  Brand Media Specifications

Goal: The purpose of these Brand Media Specifications is to ensure high quality Deliverables that are archivable and usable across a number of mediums and channels.

Video Recording Quality: Influencer must provide high resolution, unedited video recordings, as well as final stories, clips, audio, posts, copy and any part thereof developed or modified during creation of social media posts. Where possible, Influencer should film in high resolution cameras or smartphone apps: at least 1080x1920 for vertical videos and at least 1920x1080 for horizontal videos.. Filming directly in other apps (such as within Instagram) can reduce the resolution of the recording, and should only be done if absolutely necessary.  It is preferred that Influencer film in both vertical and horizontal camera modes, even if only one format is contracted to be posted. 

When shooting selfie footage, try and keep yourself against one background at a time. Too much panning or zooming can make our viewers dizzy, and make it hard for us to edit the clips together. Have a tripod or a very steady arm? Even better!

Influencer URL: Hopper will provide a URL for use in conjunction with stories or posts. Influencer agrees to attach and link according to the instructions of the Hopper. Failure to successfully implement link could result in repetition of post.
