OFF-SITE WOD COMPLETION INFO
WODs not completed with a judge present at your registered Festivus Games host must be video recorded using WODProof. Scores submitted by team Captains via Competition Corner must have a YouTube or Vimeo link (only YouTube or Vimeo links will be allowed) of that WOD for video proof.

Scores can be submitted as many times as you want between March 27th and April 17th 2021. If you know you’ll be doing the WODs off-site (any location other than your registered Festivus host) we suggest you turn in your scores by April 10th and notify your host that you have submitted scores and videos. This way your host can look at the videos to make sure you haven’t accidentally uploaded a cat video. If you wait until the last second on April 17th and you have submitted a cat video by accident you should expect a zero for that WOD’s score. There will be no time to re-submit the video because April 17th is the very last day (5:00pm Pacific time).

USING WODPROOF TO CAPTURE VIDEO PROOF
TIPS FOR RECORDING YOUR PROOF VIDEOS
- Your phone should be in landscape mode, not portrait.
- Use ample lighting, and as bright as possible for visibility.
- The video must be recording throughout the entire workout.
- All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance.
- Any editing or tampering of the video will be grounds for disqualification.
- Team Captains are responsible for the timely and successful submission of their team’s WODs.
- Video submissions may be invalidated or adjusted without warning and after the submission deadline.
- Remember your judge is the camera. If the camera can’t see everything then your judge can’t either.
- Teams submitting videos are advised to have someone strictly watching their movement to ensure each repetition meets the required standard, and that the camera captures the movement clearly. Disqualifications may be assessed due to an Athlete not meeting the movement standard or due to improper camera angles that do not permit the Judge to determine if the standard is being met.
- Don’t stand in front of the camera/block it while the WOD is active.
- We need to be able to see everything going on in the WOD with a clear view of all athletes and all the movements at all times.
- Practice the WODs and the setup you plan to use to film it. See if it captures everything and everyone properly as you had it set up. Don’t try and do this as a one and done. If we can’t see you or the movements fully at all times you will be penalized or your score will be rejected entirely.
- Use a tripod. Make sure the camera is stable. Don’t rely on propping your phone up on something. You might be jumping, your camera could fall over.
- Set your phone up 24-36 inches off the ground.
- Put your phone in AIRPLANE mode before you start recording. If you get a call during recording you don’t want the video interrupted.
- Black clothing against a black wall isn’t good. We need to be able to see athletes 20 feet away or whatever. The judge needs to be able to see if your movement has full range of motion. Wear brighter clothing when possible but we definitely need contrast of the athletes who will be near a wall.
- Start the video by showing the camera (aka your Judge) proof of the weights, the bar, the box height, the bottom of the rings are 40″ from the floor, show the tape under the rings, show us everything prior to the start of the WOD. Practice all of this.
- If you use a friend to film you make sure they are a camera man and not a cheer leader holding a camera
