Finally, Track Selection! (Mj and I are thinking a deadline maybe the 23rd, 24th)
(note this is the same thing as in the email group)
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING... before you just reply with "I want this..."
(basically only reply if you have something to add, please don't reply
with which tracks you want, that's what the email is for)
The Project is open to anyone who's interested and has some editing
experience AND the DESIRE to make a dance video. Note that those in attendance
at AWA that were in contact with MJ/familia will get first dibs on mixes.
Due to the 60 minute (or so time limit) there is a good chance that a
given video may not be a part of the mix shown at any cons... PLEASE
ACCEPT THIS FACT OR DON'T JOIN THE PROJECT! Painful decisions will be made
my MJ and Fluxmeister.
Also realize that this project has not been set up to play at any cons.
I'd first like to get a little sample together to prove that we are
serious about making this in to a video/dance event for cons to play
and entertain the masses with.
TRACKS WILL BE ASSIGNED SHORTLY (PATIENCE!!). PLEASE DO NOT START EDITING
FOR THE NES PROJECT UNTIL YOU ARE ASSIGNED A TRACK. (you're encouraged to
mess around with effects etc. and get the feel of making a dance video in
(this is a guide, we don't actually intend for EVERY mix to me made into
(Aphex Twins) - Pac Man [Techno Remix].mp3
haquisaq - mission 1 (double dragon remix).mp3
Nintendo - Mike Tyson's Punch Out Techno Remix.mp3
SuperMario Bros - The Ultimate Super Mario Bros. Dance ReMix.mp3
The Legend of Zelda - Overworld (Techno Remix).mp3
Video Games-Castlevania-Vampire Killer (Techno Gothic).mp3
(end of list)
If you need a mix, you can contact me on aim (nhmkamv)
Both MJ and I would appreciate it if everyone would keep an eye/ear out
for any other good mixes. If one you'd like to use isn't listed then
please contact us so we can approve it for the project. THINK DANCE!
Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org (PLEASE use this email address)
Fill out #1-3 below and email me
with the subject "Nes Project Track
Selection." (this includes EVERYONE other than MJ and myself, even if you
emailed me before! ... familia should also email... PLEASE!
Anyone who wants to be a part of the project MUST agree
to abide by #4-6.
#1 - Name:
#2 - Online Nickname: (aim, org nickname)
#3 - Please fill this out for each track you'd like to use:
(number them by preference)
Track name (mp3 name):
Basic idea(if anything but basic dance sync):
If you don't have a preference on any of the mixes, then simply
let us know which anime you'd like to work with (or OWN, more importantly)
and we'll try to match it up with a good mix. ^_^
Important note: Due to the length of many of the mixes, it is likely
that you will be asked to cut it down. Admitedly I will be leanient
towards allowing more time for especially good mixes. The normal max
should be 2:30, but of course 2:00 or less would be EVEN better... 3
minutes is only if the mix is simply too good...
(discretion of MJ and Flux)
(if you don't agree to #4 then don't join the project)
#4 - I accept that my video may not be part of the ConMix. I know
that ANY completed videos I make WILL be included in the Ultimate NES
Project Mix (which will consist of ALL completed videos). I will not
be a jerk or make videos for tracks I am not assigned(such as "waaah, I
wanted that mix and so I made a BETTER video for it than other person").
If I am a jerk I will remove myself from the project before someone
I will offer constructive and friendly criticism.
I will take criticism without freaking out.
I will make a good(?) dance video! ^_^
(Those in charge, MJ and Flux agreed to this)
#5 - Video compression etc:
I don't care what you edit with or what magical stuff occurs... the final
should be 29.97/720x480 in either Huffyuv avi (HUUUGE) or mpeg-2.
(additional specs may come up later)
Note that the mpeg-2 will probably be converted to huffyuv avis for
construction of the final mixes.
Think quality, if you can't have the greatest then use the best you can,
If you don't follow these compression guidelines... your video will not
be able to take part in the project!
#6 - Deadlines etc.
Project completion: Sometime in 2003 (before AWA9 definitely)
Video Deadlines: ... uhm see above... maybe a few months before AWA9 to
work out all the issues.
As the project progresses I would like to have regular progress reports
etc. I will probably set up a location where all the videos can be
uploaded/downloaded as to better share ideas/videos along with allowing
for critiques etc. This will remain private to the NES project staff.
