___________________________
Round 2 Theme

Congratulations on everybody making it through to round #2. Now it’s time to move on to the next challenge.

Your mission for this round is to create a video with a theme surrounding the word you have been assigned.

Words will be assigned by a double blind assignment feature. One of the judges will pick a number between 1-16 [this will represent the editors], and another judge will pick another number between 1-16 [these represent the words]. A final judge will pair the two previous numbers together to get your assigned theme.

You will get your word in a separate pm from me here in the next hour. Please be patient as I go down the line. This message is just a batch pm I send to all contestants to let them know of the theme.

For example, if your word was “monster”, you should create a video that reflects that word. It could be a literal monster, a metaphorical monster, or some other deep interpretation of the word monster.


What the judges will be asked to be looking for is this: “Can the judge tell that this video was meant to be assigned with this word”

Judges will know the word that your video will be assigned with, so no worries in that department, but they won’t know who exactly has what word.

No anime can be used twice, therefore first come first serve, and you must post in the thread your anime selection. The first post will be updated with anime selections as they come in.

You may choose whatever audio you wish to use in this round.

Videos must follow org standards of p, and as such, no over-violence, no sex and no full nudity or sexual intercourse.

Videos must be turned in on no later than October 29, 2009. If you finish early, please send it right away. You do not have to wait until October 29th. There will be no extensions in this round. If I do not have your video in by 11:59:59 on October 29th by Central Standard Time, you will be automatically eliminated.

If you need extra time for RENDERING/UPLOADING ONLY on the 29th due to slow internet connections, I can grant extensions based on need. However, you will be required to tell me the timestamp/filesize of your video, and you cannot edit your video past this point.

Videos should be no longer than 1:45. Seconds can be traded in the main thread.

Project Editor Background... :


Spoiler :
[Taken From the First Thread]
The first ever Mutli-Editor Iron Chef competition. First and foremost, let's explain the rules.

1) Each contestant must sign on with the intention of doing each competition. If something comes up, please make sure to contact me in time so that arrangements can be made for your case. PM'ing me with one hour before deadline saying "I can't finish" isn't going to cut it.

2) Each contestant must agree and abide by rules set forth by both this contest and Animemusicvideos.org. Any violations will result in disqualification.

3) Each round will have a certain number of contestants that will be eliminated. The contestants with the lowest scores or who do not participate will be. To clear any confusion, this isn't a one-on-one format. Each and every one of you will be fighting against each other for the top.

4) Each round's competition will have a theme. It is the duty of the editor to eximplify that theme to the best of their abilities. Remember, a theme can be both a literal one or a metaphorical one.

5) Editors will have a certain amount of time for each competition. With the competitions I've arranged so far, it ranges from one week to two weeks for editing time. If you need extra editing time or are having issues regarding exporting/uploading/sending, again, please inform me ahead of time so I can make arrangements. I want to give everyone a fair chance at this, but I understand as an editor that things can go seriously wrong. So a courtesty PM would be nice.


Spoiler :
The battle for Nya-Chan’s title is on the line! Hunter will return as obnoxious commentator, and Ghet/mirko make triumphant returns as judges. Sanchez has joined our madness, and of course me, your coordinator and lead judge.

The sequel to the slightly popular Project Editor series. As the second in the series, there are several changes to the rules and the formats that I will be explaining now.

Meet the Judges!
Spoiler :
Code “MEP Whore” Chrono : Coordinator and starter of the Project Editor series. The “happeh” judge, and the one least likely to assault you with a pointy stick. But he is the most likely to scam you on your taxes and get the IRS on your ass. >.> Take it or leave it is all he has to say.

Sanchez “Lawnmower” Rodriguez: First time formal judge of Project Editor, and the one who will do all the lawnmowing services for the winner. He's damn film student, so you better have a masterful piece of art and storytelling or he'll rip it a new one. He is also the master of the lolis and all loli related products, as the CEO of Loli Incorporated. Fear deh loli. FEAR THEM!

Ghet “Ghonna Ghet Ghu” Gregory Guglarian: Second time judge for the Project Editor series. In last year’s competition, he was the the bish of the group, but this year between Sanchez and him, it’s gonna be hard to tell which one is more critical. Ghet might just lose this advantage however... I mean, Sanchez is a damn film student! Can't get much more insane than that.

Mirkosp “Modkip” Muddikens: Like Ghet, another second time judge for the Project Editor series. Mirko will make your poor videos feel like filthy whores when he gets done with them. So much so, that when they are finished getting judged by him, that they all commit mass suicide via recycle bin and premamently wipe your deleted space so they will never see the light of day again. I don’t know what I’m talking about by this point, so just give me a pity laugh.

The "Original" Origonal Head Hunter: A judge and our loverly commentator from Project Editor I, Hunter makes a successful return. We have to type something special and meaningful here, so please enjoy this limerick. There once was a man named Hunter, who reminded me a lot of my aunt Gunther. When Code got all emo, Hunter went all screamo and took over the project one day. We all love his voice, and hey it's really moist! He's definitly not a mime, and hey I don't mean to interrupt, but Beyonce had the best video of all time. :up:

Project Editor 2’s PRIZE

Spoiler :
That’s right people. This year we have a little more motivation for you all out there.

The winner will be given….

Project Editor Round 2 Champion’s T-Shirt!

[Image will be here later, once I actally get the design ready]

You too could be sporting this FABULOUS piece of clothing for all your nonexistent friends to see! The prize will be furnished and shipped by me, and will be shipped wherever in the world you live [cheapest fare of course…]. The back will contain signatures of all members that was involved with the project. =D

Runner up will receive a small commemorative poster signed by everybody as well.

These are one of a kind items that will only be produced once a year at the end of each project editor to come.

Do we really have to spend two whole weeks on our videos?
