Welcome to Modern Castle! At Modern Castle we see ourselves as educators and researchers of all things home. So for us, information, knowledge, and the ability to communicate and pass it on to others is incredibly important.
The entire team at Modern Castle was fortunate enough to be able to attend 4-year universities. It’s our hope that we can help support others to pursue their dreams through higher education and life-long learning.
To enter for a chance to win the Modern Castle $1,000 scholarship please create a short video (no longer than 5 minutes) answering the following questions:
•While you were growing up, what aspects of your home felt modern?
•What technological trends do you think will most dramatically impact the way the modern home runs in the future?
•What aspects of the home do you feel are most in need of modernization? Using current and / or near-future technology, how would you modernize it?
Please upload your video to YouTube and email the video link here.
The winning video submission will be the video that best answers the above questions in the most interesting, entertaining, informative, creative, and engaging way. Below are a few other tips for your submission:
•The video should be a maximum of 5 minutes long.
•Video production quality counts. Don’t film on portrait (unless you have a good reason).
•Don’t simply talk into a web cam or your cell phone for 5 minutes straight. Mix it up a bit with interesting elements, change shooting angles, and use creative graphics to help engage the viewer.
•Don’t read off of an obvious script in front of you.
•Make it fun!
