Each team drew a different trades area to cover. Some of the others included aesthetics, culinary / hospitality, transportation, etc. Requirements for the video included a voiceover, narration, or interview.

No pre-loaded music of sound fx were allowed, everyone had to use tracks from a royalty-free library provided by Skills Canada.

iMacs were provided for editing, installed with Final Cut Pro 7, X, and iMovie. There was no altering of shots allowed whatsoever: no time lapse, slow-mo, colour correction, exposure / saturation alterations or colour grading. Only straight cuts or dissolved were allowed, and titles had to be static unless it was created by hand. No graphics or special fx were allowed.

Videos were judged on a rubric out of 100 (25 Storytelling, 25 Editing, 10 Camerawork, 10 Audio, 10 Client Criteria, 10 Approach, 5 Production Brief, 5 Overall Impact)
