Common People Project FAQs

Once you've filmed your video, send it to [email protected] by 31 January, 2022. Your file might be too big to send as a direct attachment, so try sending it through WeTransfer or via a Dropbox link (or equivalent).

Flip your phone on its side and record in landscape. Make sure the file is an MP4 file too! If you are having any issues with recording or your format, please get in touch [email protected]

A mash-up of people dancing up a storm. Only a cut (or more if you're fab) will be used in the final edit. There will also be some text telling us where you are from.

Anything (as long as it's PG)! It could be your living room, your driveway, your kitchen, your town sign or a painted silo. Get creative!

To have fun! Pick an outfit or costume that makes you feel PROUD and tells us who you are.

If your recording is not inappropriate, i.e. it contains content which is racist, sexist, disabilist, homophobic, biphobic, transphobic or other discriminatory conduct that is reasonably likely to offend, insult, humiliate, intimidate or ridicule any minorities. Also, no nudity please.
