Let your music inspire others.
How to Make an “Rx: Music” Video
- Be a YouTube member. In order to upload your video, you must have or create a valid YouTube account.
- Make sure the sound on your video is clear. If no one can hear you, no one will watch it. Make sure to shoot in quiet environments and to project.
- Don't backlight. Make sure light is on your face and not behind you (i.e. don't sit in front of a bright window).
- Title your video. Use the title “Rx: Music” and include your name and location (ex: “Rx: Music: Dylan from Minnesota”).
- Tag your video. Use tags to describe your video so that other people can find it (ex: “depression-inspired song” or “original song about depression”).
- Tell us about you. Write (or record as an intro to your song) a mini-bio (no longer than 250 words, or 1 minute). Describe how music helps you cope with your depression, and share the inspiration behind your song (if you’d like).
- Sing or play your song. Then upload it to YouTube.
- Send us the link! Submit your video to [email protected]
