Movie Making Contest


Hello Guest Hello

Let me introduce you to our new contest. Smile

What to do?
1.) Grab a video camera.
2.) Go outside (or inside) and shoot a video or a short film, related to our forum (an example a bored teenager who was at the police station quite often because of things he did, and then a psychiatrist recommends him to open a forum to stop doing those bad things, and then he comes here to promote it and then becomes a staff member et cetera). Please note though, it MUST be related to our forum as the main story.
3.) Transfer the video to your computer.
4.) Add effects to your video and edit it.
5.) Remember to include everybody in credits, and make sure to ask them (actors and location owner) to film there/them to avoid legal issues.
6.) Upload the video to YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo... and post the link as a reply to this message.

Who are the judges?
  • Dumbledore27: Filming (camera) techniques, script, editing technique - filmmaker's point of view
  • Grim: script - viewer's point of view


What does the winner get?
First place
* 5000 points
*
* an HTML page where they'll be able to post updates about their forum + a global ad for 3 weeks

Second place
* 2500 points
* a free global ad for 1 week
*

Third place
* 1250 points
* a free Welcome ad for 1 week

When can I enter?
The contest starts today, the 29th of June, at 3 p.m. (15:00) GMT. Submissions will end on the 13th of July, 2011, at 1 p.m. GMT. Any submissions submitted later will not be taken into account.

The judges will judge the videos from then and on 19th of July, I will announce the winners.

Please note: camera settings do not matter. That means we won't be judging quality (it won't make you any better if you have 1080p video and not 360p) or ratios (16:9, 4:3...) What matters is the quality of the script - how intriguing it is and how good it is.

How long must the video be?
It has to be between 5 and 30 minutes. If you upload it to YouTube, though, and the video is longer than 15 minutes, upload it in 2 parts.

Music must be gotten legally and with author's/performer's permission.
Here are some royalty free music websites:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

You are responsible for legal things at your video, such as getting rights to film on a certain location. If you don't get rights and the owner of the location complains, you are disqualified from the contest.

Thank you for taking your time and reading this.
We hope as many users as possible will participate.
