Cast Content Submission
Need to change a published submission? Or remove it? Please fill out the form below:
The Creator must publish a piece of content at least six times per year or every other month. Monthly or more is preferred. Longer form content may receive exceptions such as a miniseries or movie format.
The Creator must own the rights to all of the content. Any infringement of copyright holds the Creator solely responsible and liable.
The Creator recognizes that other creators may have similar subjects. If a video or audio is submitted that is too similar to another, Rocket City Cast may have to reject the Creator’s submission that came in second.
The Creator agrees to be cordial and professional to other creators. Content may not be critical of other creators.
The Creator may have sponsors inside their uploaded content, mentions in the audio file or graphics in the video. Your sponsor cannot show inside your featured image, show description, or other areas inside the Rocket City Cast properties. The Creator should consult the Rocket City Cast about such situations, which will likely include creating a sponsorship arrangement between you, your sponsor, and Rocket City Cast. Placing your Content inside our site does not entitle us to revenue made by mentions inside your content, only that which resides outside of your Content files.
Rocket City Cast may approach Creators about Sponsors for their show in order to support the Creator. The rates for such sponsorship are dictated by Rocket City Cast and the Sponsor and Rocket City Cast will retain 50% or less of the sponsorship. Such sponsorships will visually and audibly designate direct sponsorship. The site or app may have general sponsorships that can appear near the Creators content and the Creator does not share in this revenue. These will not designate specific sponsorship to that Creator.
Creators may also be sponsors of pages within Rocket City Cast. Rocket City Cast will not force or offer sponsorships to businesses that are directly competitive to each other so as not to create conflict or confusion. However, categorical or sidebar sponsorships may appear on a page of a competitive business but will never designate direct sponsorship of the competitor. Exceptions will only be made when both parties give express permission.
The Content Should Be Local in one of two ways
- Created by someone Local
- Focused on Local Content
“Local” is defined within 20 miles of Downtown HSV. Exceptions may be considered.
The Content cannot be an advertisement of services. We may add a section eventually for such content but for now 80% of the Content must be educational or entertaining. Rocket City Cast retains the right to evaluate and approve all submitted content, especially on this requirement, in order to retain the trust and loyalty of local viewers.
The Content is not short form, such as single TikTok videos. You may create compilations of short form videos, but these must be edited well. The Content must be 2 minutes or longer. Rocket City Cast can review proposed exceptions.
The Content must be edited for final use. Rocket City Cast will not edit content for the Creator unless compensated. The Content cannot be the raw version of recording. This is to ensure that the viewers get a professional experience. If the Creator needs help with editing, they can employ Rocket City Cast or others to help. Rocket City Cast reserves the right to remove content that does not meet the following Quality Standards.
The Content Quality Standards are as follows:
- Audible voice and music must have low static levels or background noise. Exceptions may be made for outdoor videos. If the voices go out temporarily, subtitles may be required. Please use mics if possible.
- Similar copyright standards from Youtube apply. Do not use copyrighted songs, imagery, or video without permission. Small exceptions may be made if you are referencing them for the purpose of explanation. If you have permission, please email it to us.
- Upload video that is at least standard definition and shot horizontally if with a phone. If your content is vertical, apply a filter that adds a blurred background filter.
- Video that is not overly shaky or pixelated.
- We recognize that some creators may be new and may provide suggestions and require a resubmission.
The Content must not have illegal or pornographic imagery, video or audio. The Featured image and description must show it has explicit language. Non-severe swearing is the occasional use of d*mn, h*ll, *ss and d*ck. The use of n*gga will be reviewed for context. The content cannot be derogatory or racist in nature, even if argued as satire. Comedic content will have to be reviewed for context. If ever a viewer complains about content, it will be taken down and reviewed.
