Вступительный тест

Ниже приведены вопросы вступительного теста с ответами и пояснениями.

  • It is ok to upload footage to RevoStock.com if there was only a slightly visible smudge mark on the camera lens.

    False

    Footage should have no recognizable smudges, sunspots, dust or dirt.

  • I can upload my footage in either windows media, MPEG, or avi format to RevoStock.com.

    False

    Footage must be compressed with the QuickTime Photo JPEG codec. Footage acquired with a camera should be encoded at 99% quality and backgrounds or graphics generated with a computer should be encoded at 100% quality.

  • I can upload footage which includes a copyrighted logo, as long as you only see it for a second.

    False

    If there is any recognizable logo somewhere in your footage, it will not be accepted.

  • I have some pretty dark footage, but it is ok for me to just fix this in post and upload to RevoStock.

    False

    Footage should be properly lit when shot. Bumping up the brightness and contrast of your footage adds noise. Only use the brightness and contrast filters to the point that significant noise is not added.

  • I have some footage of a good friend who told me I could upload it. In this case, I don't need to acquire a model release.

    False

    Any piece of footage featuring an easily recognizable face must have a model release for that person.

  • If the lighting, color or shadows aren't that great when I acquire my footage, it isn't that important since I can clean it up in post before uploading it.

    False

    Footage should be shot so that it needs very little if any touchup in post. The more touchup done in post the more likely noise could be added to the footage.

  • It is RevoStock.com's policy to accept footage including nudity as long as it is tastefully done.

    False

    Footage including nudity, sexual situations, or questionable material will not be accepted into the RevoStock.com collection.

  • I can upload stock footage that I purchased from another company as long as I add some filters and graphics to make it my own.

    False

    Footage you upload to RevoStock.com must be original content produced or owned outright by you.

  • As long as my camera uses MiniDV tape, I can submit footage to RevoStock.com.

    False

    Many consumer level video cameras use MiniDV tape. Cameras must be prosumer or better.

  • I have some footage I shot of myself using a tripod, so I don't need to submit a model release.

    False

    All footage featuring easily recognizable faces must have a model release.

  • I can upload footage with a visible McDonald's sign only because I work there and asked the manager if it was ok.

    False

    No copyrighted logos may be recognizable.

  • Footage shot with poor composition, poor lighting and poor color will not be approved.

    True

  • I have some urban footage with some easily recognizable faces, but since it is in a public place it's ok.

    False

    All footage featuring easily recognizable faces must have a model release.

  • Footage that looks "homemade" will be rejected.

    True

    We want to build the greatest library of professionally shot footage at reasonable prices!

  • Handheld camera shots that are jerky and shaky are ok because it gives the footage an artistic effect.

    False

    There are very few situations where this is the case. Usually shots are shaky or jerky only because proper techniques were not used to stabilize the camera.

  • Footage acquired using a boom arm, dolly or steadicam adds smooth motion and interest to your shot and can be highly valuable.

    True
