Ready for your team to get tens of thousands of views?

Premiere Night is back once again and with the end of stop build day you have a couple more days to be prepared to show off your robot! Even if your robot is not 100% take the time to film it and show off what you have to the community.

Premiere Night will take place on 2/23 starting at 6pm US Eastern. We have several giveaways and prizes lined up for those who watch live so get your entire team, family and friends on and logged into Twitch for more chances to win. You can always raise awareness for Premiere Night by tagging @firstupdatesnow and #FUNPremiereNight on social media and directing people to https://www.twitch.tv/firstupdatesnow

Submissions must be a 90 second video or less and are due by end of day Friday February 21st. Submission Link will be sent to you as we get closer to Premiere Night. (While we cannot guarantee that your video will be shown, if you are running late, please contact admin@firstupdatesnow.com or Tyler on Discord at discord.gg/firstupdatesnow)

IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS:

Do not release a reveal video prior to Premiere Night. Teasers are okay as long as they do not show off the entire robot or full functionality (you can obscure portions). Please direct people to watch the full reveal on Premiere Night on your teaser video(s). You may also release a longer or different reveal video after Premiere Night has completed.

Your Premiere Night Video needs to be uploaded to YouTube under UNLISTED (make sure it is not public or private).

Video quality needs to be filmed and uploaded at 720p or higher 16:9 aspect ratio. Video needs to fill the entire frame (do not film in 360p and then upscale to 720).

Audio: FUN is white-listed to use Monstercat music for streaming. Feel free to utilize music at monstercat.com in your reveal video to guarantee it is not muted in the stream archive. You can also find royalty free music on YouTube.

If you have any questions feel free to post here or on Discord.
