Video Instructions

What makes a great video?

  • Introduce yourself (name, age, where you are from, where you are studying/what you do for a living) and describe your personality. What do your friends say about you?
  • Talk about Pahunch! Why would you be an ideal contestant? What skills do you have that would make you a potential winner? Why is it important for you to participate in the show?
  • If you come from a unique region or area of Nepal, talk about where you’re from, how it’s part of your personality, or how it may help you do well on Pahunch.
  • If you have an interesting job, talk about your job and how those skills may help you on Pahunch.

Lighting Tips

  • If shooting indoors, make sure the room is well-lit and that the light is in front of you .
  • Avoid shooting with a window or bright sunlight behind you; this will cause silhouetting.

Audio tips

  • Speak loudly and clearly.
  • Find a relatively quiet area to shoot your video, so that ambient noises won’t interfere.
  • If you’re indoors, avoid shooting in loud and crowded rooms where your voice will be drowned by other people and surrounding noises.
  • If shooting outdoors, avoid shooting in loud areas and when it’s windy. The wind will distort the sound.

Camera Tips

  • Your video will be shown on a TV. Please shoot HORIZONTALLY and not in portrait (vertical) mode.

Size and Format

  • Please ensure your video is smaller than 30MB and in one of the following file formats: mpg, mpeg, flv, avi, mp4, mov, 3gp, wmv, mv4.
