DDR Project Take 2

Postby TommyRude » Mon Sep 23, 2002 8:31 pm

Okay y'all, check it out. The DDR project guys are right, there are a lot of people who want in on it, but not enough slots to go around. So, to help relieve the tension on Brad an' Kusayaro, I'm organizing a second DDR project. Its going to be for DDR 5th Mix, track requests are now bein accepted. Here's the info:

To request a track, send an email to ddrproject@animerudeboyproductions.com with the track requests and the anime you intend to use for them. ('various' for multiple animes, don't list them all.)

Make 1-3 requests, in order of preference.

Most tracks will have one primary vid, wit 1-2 backups. The creators will not be allowed to know whether theirs is the primary or a backup until the project is complete.

Tracks are assigned on a first come first serve basis and will be given in the order I recieve the rquests.

The only rules are as follows:

No graphic nudity or sexual content.
If a video uses only one anime for source, it cannot use the same series as the one before or after it.

Creators involved in the 2002 or 2003 AWA DDR projects should not apply. No double dipping. (This might change as the deadline comes closer, but I want to give new people the first shot.)

Things like use of american animation, CG, an' live action are judged on a per video basis. There are no standard guidlines for those things.

Creators who finish their vids early will have the option to do backups an' extra vids if they choose to do so.

The deadline is April 1 2003.

Acepted digital formats:
Mpeg1, Mpeg2, any standard AVI or Quicktime codec, DV.
Divx is acceptable, but not recomended, same with all mpeg4 codecs.
The prefered resolution is 720x480, the minimum is 320x240
Proprietary codecs are not accepted. That includes most capture codecs.
Submissions are accepted on Data CD, Data DVD, Authored DVD. NO TAPES.
Cinepack is not recomended and may cause your video to be bumped down the ladder.

Creators will be told where to send the submissions after they are complete.

Send any and all questions to ddrproject@animerudeboyproductions.com or tommyrude@animerudeboyproductions.com

Lets try to make this work,
Peace

You know, TommyRude - this actually might make things more difficult for Hsien and Brad next year.

Next year is going to be DDR 4th non stop which has over twice the amount of tracks than this year and will hence need twice the amount of creators (and there's nothing to say everyone who did vids this year will want to do one next year so that could mean even mroe free slots)

Next year is the chance for everyone who is interested to get on the project. If the amv creators of the world are spread between the two I can imagine not all of the DDR videos getting done for ddr 4 cause there's so many tracks.

I think there is gonig to be an announcement about how many places there will be on the new project (probably around 20 or more) and how people can be part of it but dont take my words as gospel, wait for word from Hsien and Brad when there is an announcement at AWA.

I should probably mention that we'll still almost certainly move forward with 5th Mix for DDR4 Project regardless.
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

Hmm....I just wonder what's going to happen when we run out of DDRs to run on. Course the Anipara Project has plenty of CDs so I guess it all balances out.

I said should. I'm not psycho enough to track down the AWA list an' boot double dippers off the project :P

Okay, amongst all the backhanded remarks an' votes of un-confidence I've gotten in the past 24 hours, some people made some valid points about the double dipping rule.
So now, there are no limits on participation. If y'wanna be in both, great. Hell, I might add my name to the lotery for DDR3 too.

The rule wasn't meant too keep people from joining the AWA project, it was to keep spaces open for people who didn't make it into it. Unfortunately, a lotta people are more interested in politics than makin videos, so assumed it was some master plan of mine to put the poor AWA crew outta business. The irony is, the old 'when you assume' cliché was never more fitting.

Really the concept behind it is fine but I would say the project and submissions shouldn't be open until the next DDR project is full up. This will help prevent the double dipping becase people who allready have a track are lessl ikely to apply for another. Now my only problem with it is that it now would come off as a competition between the two DDR projects in getting them out and everything. You'd have to find a way around that. Really I think the best way to go is to come up with a similar project (such as the Anipara Project allready in existance) and use a different soundtrack, Roy once treid to start the Initial D project a long time ago but gave up on it. I say just go with a different game and your problems are solved.

I jus said the double dipping rule is no more! Sheesh. An' if we wait till the AWA project is in full swing, we won't even have a chance of getting it done in time to pitch it to AX. (No comments from the peanut gallery. I'm well aware AX rejected the last one.)

Hey Tommy,
I just submitted my requests and was promptly told that neither Matsuri Japan, Ecstacy, or Holic were on 5th mix. So what 5th mix are you using anyway? I only know of one. ^^

Okay, Tommy. Let's forget for a moment about the fact that you're basically undermining 2 years of hard work by over 50 people, and that you're basically trying to get the jump on our future project before we get to it.
Let's talk about what's going to happen when you push forward with your project.

First off: You have no idea what you are getting into. I guarantee that by your April 1 deadline, you will have less than a 30% followthrough rate. Guarantee. Either that, or you will have a handful of thrown-together DBZ/Eva videos in your hands. Now you may be okay with that...but let's think a little further.

When it's time for us to start our own 5th Mix project, where are all of your editors going to turn when they realize your project isn't going to make it? That's right, they're going to come to us. And all of our editors, who have worked 3 years on the project will have to give up the juiciest tracks to your editors, since their tracks are already done. That's not fair to our editors. If we turn your editors away, that's not fair to them either. So both camps get screwed.

And the issue of "double-dipping": I strongly disagree with Quu and think that there should be no double-dipping between our 4th Mix project (DDR3) and your 5th Mix project. Let's say some of our DDR3 editors decide to also do tracks for your project. Well, when it comes time to do our own DDR4 (with 5th Mix), they're going to come back with completed tracks -- and once again somebody gets screwed because the double-dippers will essentially have bypassed our track selection process, which I am striving to make as fair to old and new editors as humanly possible. That's not fair to the other editors.

So...as an administrator of the DDR Project, I get to be the asshole and say the following: there will be no special consideration placed on anyone who joins Tommy's project. I'm not saying "Join Tommy and DIE!", I'm saying that when we press forward with DDR4 5th Mix, we will assign tracks as normal, and even if you've already done a track for Tommy, you will still have to get in line. If you've completed track 10 for Tommy but a different editor is assigned to that track for us, tough. Same goes with double-dipping. If you work on DDR3 and Tommy's project simultaneously, you are given no priority on your 5th Mix track when it comes to DDR4. This is the only fair way to do it. I'd rather be an asshole and give fair warning right now than have to turn away hardworking editors a year down the line.

I'm sure that pissing a lot of people off doesn't bother you Tommy, but I'm telling you now that a push for a concurrent 5th Mix project is going to cause a lot of problems. You can tell all of us "Too Fucking Bad" once again (like you did to the entire DDR Mailing List), but at least people will now know how we're going to handle things on our side. Our 5th Mix project will proceed as planned.

Nobody opposes you organizing a collaborative AMV project, Tommy...but it'd be nice if you could use an original idea instead of pulling the rug out from an ongoing effort.
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

Y'know, part of me actually thought you guys would LIKE the idea. I mean, lets not be REASONABLE here, heaven forbid. All see is someone steppin in your yard, an you get pissed. Well its not your freakin yard! You don't own DDR, you don' own AMVs. You have absolutely no right to complain.
An' if I'm doomed to fail, as you're so fond of pointing out, why do you even care? If you had brain one in the nishapen gourd or yours, you'd save yourself the stress an jus sit back an' watch me fail. Either you'r too stupid to realize that, or you actually DO realize I'm gonna make this work an' you're afraid.

Let's talk about what's going to happen when you push forward with your project.

First off: You have no idea what you are getting into. I guarantee that by your April 1 deadline, you will have less than a 30% followthrough rate. Guarantee.

Maybe I don' know what I'm getting into, but unlike most people, I don' let that stop me. See, I'm not content to sit back an let the 'ruling class' handle all the big scrary stuff. I know you would like to believe that there are only 4 or 5 people on the face of the earth who could organize a project like this, but some of us have a slightly more realistic view of the world.

When it's time for us to start our own 5th Mix project, where are all of your editors going to turn when they realize your project isn't going to make it? That's right, they're going to come to us. And all of our editors, who have worked 3 years on the project will have to give up the juiciest tracks to your editors, since their tracks are already done. That's not fair to our editors. If we turn your editors away, that's not fair to them either. So both camps get screwed.


Again wit the doomed to fail thing. Why not jus' sit back an see how things pan out before YOU decide this project isn't goin anywhere.

And the issue of "double-dipping": I strongly disagree with Quu and think that there should be no double-dipping between our 4th Mix project (DDR3) and your 5th Mix project.

That's not fair to the other editors.


Well I HOPE that when our 5th mix is done, no one will try to pass off the same tracks to yours.

So...as an administrator of the DDR Project, I get to be the asshole and say the following: there will be no special consideration placed on anyone who joins Tommy's project. I'm not saying "Join Tommy and DIE!", I'm saying that when we press forward with DDR4 5th Mix, we will assign tracks as normal, and even if you've already done a track for Tommy, you will still have to get in line.

Works for me, although is' quite possible (an' no doubt your intention) that that'll scare people away from my project.

I'm sure that pissing a lot of people off doesn't bother you Tommy, but I'm telling you now that a push for a concurrent 5th Mix project is going to cause a lot of problems. You can tell all of us "Too Fucking Bad" once again (like you did to the entire DDR Mailing List), but at least people will now know how we're going to handle things on our side. Our 5th Mix project will proceed as planned.


Don' mind if I do. *ahem* I'm goin ahead wit the project as planned, an' if that's a threat to your group, or if you feel insulted by that fact, well, TFB. You hear me? I said T...F...B.

The only thing I'm guilty of is working under the delusion that some of the AMV ruling class were decent human beings. As I mentioned before, is' obvious now that their f*ckin' pointless little power games are more important to them than the actual art of makin AMVs. Well for that crime, allow me to say sorry for giving people the benefit of the doubt.
