SEVAFest Frequently Asked Questions
How much does the event cost?
All SEVAFest events are free to attend for participants and their chaperone.
What should I bring to the event?
SECC does not provide equipment at events so each student or production team will need to bring their own school-provided or personal production equipment to the event. Your kit should include camera, batteries, microphone, headphones and tripod. Learn what to bring with this video from SEVA TV’s Naya.
What should I wear to the event?
Please wear a SEVA shirt so that you are easily recognized at the event.
Who will be responsible for my student at the event?
Each student will need a chaperone or teacher to be responsible for them during the entire event. Please make sure to have a plan before the start of the event. SECC and SEVAFest partners are not responsible for students at the event.
Do I need to sign a release form?
Each event attendee needs to sign a video/photo release form so that SECC as well as fellow participants can document the event.
