GENERAL RENDER SETTINGS
Please compress your final film using the following specifications.
File Type: .MOV or MP4 or M4V preferred.

ASPECT RATIO CONSIDERATIONS
Note: Keep all content and credits out of the black bar border. The projector will likely cut them off otherwise.
Please visit http://www.vimeo.com/help/compression for software-specific tutorials for compressing your final film.
After you have rendered your final file, please take time to watch it in its entirety to ensure it looks exactly the way you expect it before you submit.
If you have questions about these specifications, please contact David. (email@example.com or 602.821.0647)
Films must be delivered online, unless previous arrangements have been made.
*** IMPORTANT!*** Your film will be judged as “delivered” based on the date/time stamp of upload completion on the email that we receive from Google. So, please be sure you allow time for “Internet Traffic”. Please do not try to upload a pro-res file or other large file format. One indicator that you might be uploading a pro-res or other high-resolution codec is if you have a very large file. Your file should be around than 1gb.
We will reply to you to verify that the file has been downloaded and verified as soon as possible after receipt. However, the more people that email and ask if we received the film the more it slows down the process of checking the films in.
Google Docs has been tested and verified as reliable. If for some reason the above instructions are not working for you, it is up to you to find a way to deliver your final file to IFP Phoenix. You may use an alternate service like yousendit.com, dropbox, etc. Your film will be judged as delivered based on the date/time of upload completion we receive from such a service. You can also hand deliver a file to David. However, hours and availability may vary. You will need to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the turn in.
***There are no excuses for a late turn in. In order to be fair to all who turn in on time, we have to stick to the parameters we have set forth. ***
