Australian Ninja Warrior Audition Video Assistance

Written by Dave

Are you physically ready to win Ninja Warrior Australia and conquer Midoriyama but you lack the video editing skills to make your application really pop?

Ninja Academy can help!

Ryan Chatifeld, the man behind local Ninja legend Adam Chatfield’s submission video (below) is offering professional filming and editing for audition videos before the eptember 9 submission deadline!*

The cost for a full production including editing and filming is $850.00 for a single video, or $1,500.00 for two videos filmed on the same day.

However, we have been told by the casting team at Ninja Warrior Australia that footage filmed on a mobile phone or action camera is perfectly fine for submission and Ryan is happy to edit footage you have taken yourself for $50.00 per hour.

This is the official requirements for the video from the Australian Ninja Warrior casting website:

“Please be aware that this video will help determine whether or not you get a place on the show. Be creative, be unique, be honest and show us who you really are. It can be up to a maximum of 5 minutes in duration. The MAXIMUM file size should be 500mb.

  1. Please begin with stating your:
  2. Full Name
  3. Age
  4. Where you live
  5. Occupation
  1. Include footage demonstrating your physical abilities
  1. Answer the following questions to camera
  2. Tell us a bit about yourself
  3. What has been a major event in your life and how did you overcome it?
  4. What is your motivation for applying?
  5. Why do you think you have what it takes to win Ninja Warrior Australia?”

For Ryan to edit an application video for you in accordance with these guidelines, he will need the following files delivered to Ninja Academy on a hard-drive or USB for him to collect:


In addition, Ninja Academy is happy to offer any of its members free access to any footage we have of them from our Ninja Challenge events, so if you’re interested in using this footage make sure there is enough room on your USB or hard-drive for it!

We hope to see as many of our local Ninjas get on the show as possible!

The Ninja Academy team.
