Tips for getting great video shots
The films we aim to show a very wide range of garden railways, settings, people and models. We need to show people, young and old, enjoying the hobby and having fun, and this is where you can help by submitting clips of your railways. Obviously not every clip submitted can be included, but the more we have to choose from the better.
- The clips should be filmed in high definition (1920×1080 pixels) or 4K. (All modern smart photos will film at these resolutions).
- The video clips should also be in landscape mode, not portrait.
It would be really useful if you could also tell us a little bit about you and/or your railway. Some examples might be, what got you started, what stock you run, how your locos are powered/controlled or technical challenges you faced and how you overcame them. This list is far from exhaustive. You can submit this as a text file or for those of you brave enough as a sound file or video of you talking about your railway.
If your video includes people then you must get their permission before you submit it. Be careful not to refer to anyone by name, especially children, and do not reveal the location of your railway or give any clues as to its whereabouts. If your clips are selected to be included in any of the videos then you may be asked to sign a release form.
How to submit video content
The best way to submit your video clips is to use the WeTransfer (wetransfer.com) service. This is a free service for files up to 2GB in size. Use firstname.lastname@example.org as the recipient and it’ll be delivered to Keith. Please include a message with the name of your railway and something about it.
