THE RIPPLE 2020

The Ripple is launching a YouTube channel in August. This will be promoted by a poster campaign, local press and websites such as the Con Club, Union Music, StayLewes and many more.

We are looking for content submissions such as music videos or music based conversation films covering all genres. If you have a great track without visuals then it will need to have a decent photo or graphics montage to captivate the eye as well as the ear.

To kick things off we have archive films of previous Ripple events and have been filming a number of live acts in June and July at Starfish Studios under social distancing conditions. The intention is to keep developing the channel (along with its Facebook site) in order to create a platform for local performers/music makers and, hopefully, create a bridge to the point where we can return to live performances in public.

That’s why we need both your contributions and input. New films will be uploaded every week and all acts involved will be able to post links to their product, merch or website.

We are open to any other ideas you might have for content.

You can use any file transfer system you like to submit your content to us, such as WeTransfer (wetransfer.com), which is free for transfers up to 2GB. Please upload and submit your content to submitcontent @ lewesripple.uk but don't try to email us direct with a massive file attached - that would undoubtedly fail and/or cause all sorts of problems!

Also, we'll be very grateful if you'll complete and submit the musicians' registration form below before submitting any content to us. It's important we know who you are and that you're happy with our privacy and copyright policies.

We'll fully clarify the video and audio requirements for your content shortly, but in the meantime note that YouTube supports AVI, FLV, MOV (QuickTime), MP4 and WMV plus a few other less well-known video formats. YouTube also recommend specific encoding settings for optimal conversion - the H.264 video codec and the AAC-LC audio codec with a sample rate of 48 kHz or 96 kHz.
