Do you have a Billy story you would like to share?
We’re looking for Billy fans like you to tell us a story about the part Billy has played in your life. Did he prompt you to visit far-flung corners of the earth? Has he been an inspiration in difficult times? Has he been an influence on your career? Has he made you think twice about what you grew up believing? Does he mean something special to you or the people you love? Or maybe you've met Billy and have an anecdote you'd like to share?
Just record a short video of yourself and your story could be selected for inclusion in a TV special celebrating Billy. Simply follow the instructions below (and see our Tips For Video) on how to upload your video.
The video should be no bigger than 1GB in size.
To help make your video the best possible quality, try using these tips:
Hold your phone/tablet horizontally, so you record the video in landscape orientation.
Have your phone/tablet at head height or just below, so you’re not looking up or down into the lense.
Shoot your video in a brightly-lit room, but don’t point the camera directly at a light source or have the main light source behind you.
To help keep the camera steady, hold the phone with both hands, keeping your elbows as close to your body as possible, preferably resting them on your waist to support their weight. Or try putting the camera on a flat surface, leaning against something to support it.
Avoid zooming in – it can lower the quality of picture. If you want to film something in close-up, just hold the camera closer to the object.
The audio quality is important so make sure you’re close enough to the microphone, there’s no distracting background noise (like a buzzing fridge, or someone watching TV in another room, or if you’re outside make sure it’s not too windy) Make sure you’re not in an echoey room.
If you are talking about a piece of memorabilia, or you have any photos relating to your story, please take some close up video or photos of them. If any of these are framed, ideally take them out of the frame so there are no problems with reflections in glass.
