We are looking for short video clips to be shown during choir performances.

Video Topics Needed

There is a wide variety of footage needed.  Here are a few general topics:

  • Families
  • Nature / scenery
  • Sunrise or sunset
  • Holidays
  • Friends
  • Children
  • Water

These are not complete story videos, just short clips depicting everyday life.

Format Needed

Submit HD resolution MP4, Mov, WMV, or AVI formats. For more details, see the Video Standards page.

Video Length

5-30 second individual clips.

How to Submit

Step 1: Sign the online Content Submission Agreement.

Step 2: Send your videos to us through Dropbox or via email.

  • Create a Dropbox folder with your name and share it with create@ldschurch.org, if the clips are under 12 MB.
    • If you don’t have a Dropbox account, you can click here to create a free account.
  • Or email the video files to us at create@ldschurch.org.

Don't Forget the Releases!

  • You need a signed Participant Release for videos with identifiable people in them.
  • You need a signed Location Release only if the location is recognizable in your video. However, you do not need a release for Church-owned properties such as temples or visitors' centers.
