Call for “Happy Anniversary” Video Recordings for the BCI 100-Year Anniversary Celebration!

As we gear up for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of BCI, we want to make this milestone truly memorable and special. One exciting way to do so is by creating a engaging video compilation featuring greetings and well-wishes from our incredible members and industry partners.

We invite each and every one of you to participate in this unique project by recording a short video message wishing BCI a “Happy Anniversary!” Whether you’ve been with us for decades or are a newer member, your voice and contribution are essential to capturing the spirit of our association.

Here’s how you can contribute:

  • Grab your smartphone or camera.
  • Record a brief video message (3-15 seconds) wishing BCI an happy anniversary. Feel free to get creative and have fun! You can include anecdotes, company congratulations or even showcase some memorabilia related to our association.
  • Once you’ve recorded your message, please upload it (instructions below) by Friday, February 23. We’ll compile all the submissions into a memorable video montage, which will be showcased during the week of our 100 Year Anniversary in March, as well as at our 100-Year Convention in April.

Let’s make this celebration truly unforgettable by coming together and sharing the collective camaraderie that defines BCI. Thank you in advance for your participation, and we look forward to seeing your wonderful contributions!

Recording Tips & Guidelines

The following tips and guidelines should be considered when submitting a happy anniversary video.

Person/People Recorded

  • Group (preferred) – Gather a group of employees together to say a happy anniversary message simultaneously
  • Individual

Example Messaging

  • Quick, upbeat and sincere messaging directions:
    • Happy Anniversary BCI from XYZ Company
    • Happy Anniversary Battery Council International
    • Congratulations on 100 years BCI!
    • Cheers to 100!

    • From all of us at XYZ Company, congratulations on 100 years BCI!
    • Wow 100 years! Cheers to many more!

Lighting

  • Having good light allows your phone camera to perform at its maximum capability. Whether you’re using natural sunlight or setting up lighting gear, make sure the light is hitting your face directly and you’re not lighting them from behind.
  • Lighting your face evenly from directly in front will ensure the most flattering shot.
  • Using a window to help light you is great as well.

Background

  • Make sure your background is clean, clutter free and represents the battery industry.

Audio

  • Please shoot your video in a quiet space. Turn off any fans or loud computers. If you have a lavalier mic that you can plug in that is preferred. Try to get as clean audio as you can get.
