OUR TRACKS AND OUR CALL CENTRES ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED
Following the latest Government advice; we have decided to temporarily close all TeamSport & ScotKart tracks and regional call centres until further notice.
Please don’t worry if you have never made a video before, TeamSport have some great tips to help you perfect your entry to the FIA F1 Future Star competition.
Consider who is doing the judging? Formula 1 experts are on the panel for the FIA F1 Future Star competition so bear this in mind when making your video- what is it they want to see and hear from you?
Give this lots of thought, think about how your message can be as powerful as possible within the short time available. How does it fit within the theme of the competition? People love to laugh and they love to feel good, but most of all they want to be gripped from start to finish when watching your video entry. What makes you the best choice for this years FIA F1 Future Star? Why should you stand with the F1 heroes at the start of Silverstone 2020?
A gripping start is bound to get their attention, grab that audiences attention with a strong hook from the fist couple of seconds and never let them go again until the end. Make every second of the video count.
If you think it’s appropriate you could consider the following; mention your F1 heroes by name, showcase your karting journey with TeamSport, shout about your successes, be thankful to those that support and enable you to pursue your love for the sport.
Once you have a plan in place for what you want to talk about and include in the film, plan ahead with a script. This will avoid you stumbling on words. Practice is so important, do it in front of the mirror, to your parents or friends.
Will your video entry meet the timing requirements? Have a run through a few times to check on the stop watch how long it takes and tweak as you need to.
Choose a great location for your filming. A cluttered, noisy background probably won’t look the best so give the location some thought. Perhaps a plain background, perhaps a trophy or two, or perhaps you have time to get to your local TeamSport track and film on the podium or trackside? What will you wear? You could wear a t-shirt with your F1 hero on it, you could wear your racesuit or come and borrow a TeamSport racesuit if filming at the track.
Once you are happy with your script, choice of location and you have practiced it enough to sound natural it’s time to get the camera rolling. Ask for some help from a parent or sibling with this part to ensure you get the best possible result. Luckily our phone cameras are brilliant for filming these days so you don’t need to invest in cray equipment to get a super film.
Be sure you have good lighting so you are clear and there is no glare and perhaps try and do a few takes so you have more to choose from.
FINALLY… At the point you are happy with your video and the final edits, double check you have followed all the guidelines and ready to go, submit your video together with your supporting email from the headteacher and we wish you GOOD LUCK!!!
