Video submissions will be judged by a panel of five SUNY Geneseo Faculty and Staff. Each judge will use a subjective zero to five scale in each of the following categories:

  • Impact: Did the judges laugh? Did they cry? Did it make them think?
  • Cinematography: Was the the video visually compelling?
  • Story: How well written, thought-out and portrayed is the story being told using the elements provided?
  • Gestalt: How did the totality of the video strike the individual judge?
