Sending self-tapes over can be a little stressful, especially when relying on technology to get your videos in before the deadline.
We’ve created this step by step guide to using the WeTransfer app to get your tapes over to us as easily as possible.
When you open the app (which is now called ‘Collect’ when you download it in the app store), the first screen you see will have a blue plus sign on it. Click this to upload your video.
This will link to your camera roll and you will be able to select your self-tapes to upload to the app.
Once you have access to the camera roll, tap on the video to select it, then click ‘Add’ in the top right hand corner.
The video will import to your app. You will then be shown this screen.
Select ‘Share now’.
You will see this screen, giving you several options as to how to share your file.
The best way is to tap to copy the link, and then paste the link in an email to us using your usual mail app.
Then send the email, and we can click on the link to download the file.
Once you’ve uploaded a file, on your home screen you can select it.
Then click ‘Share now’ at the bottom of the screen.
This will bring you back to the sharing screen, and you can tap to copy the link again, and follow the process above.
- When selecting your videos, you can upload more than one at a time, and share them from the same link. This makes it easier for us to download, view and send.
- Where deadlines allow, try to get your tapes over to us a day or two before you need to, to allow for any technical issues, or long upload times.
- Before sending the link, make sure you’ve uploaded everything to the app. Have you been asked to do separate clips for each scene? Have you been asked to include a clip where you introduce yourself? Be sure not to miss anything out!
We hope this guide helps to make self-taping an easy process! Good luck!
