Postby CodeZTM » Mon Jan 30, 2012 4:29 pm

Available Positions:

Digital Artist
Judge(s)
Theme Panelist(s)

OrgEditor is Looking for Assistants!

Project OrgEditor (Season 2) is looking for assistants to help out in several regards. Read below and see if you might fit into one of our categories!

_______________

Digital Artist

I am currently looking for a digital artist (you do not necessarily have to draw) to design this year’s OrgEditor logo. This logo will be used for each week’s theme, be a visible signature on the forums and used in advertising the competition. As such, a lot of your work will be required to be completed before May, preferably in March.

Your work will also be featured on the prizes that will be mailed out to the winning contestants. As such, you will also be the designer for these final prizes (Certificates).

If you are interested, please contact me via pm and show me your prior portfolio of work, as well as a small sample of what you want to use as our logo.

___________


Judges

(Please note that being a Project OrgEditor Judge will Bar you from Competition)

I am currently looking for a panel of 5-10 judges that will judge each week’s batch of videos. This is a very serious position, because you will need to rank all videos from best to worst, and be able to also justify (in written form) their placement.

Prior judging experience is a plus, but having extensive AMV history is equally important. Proof that you’ve watched/edited/seen a lot of AMVs in the past is best.

Must have at least 2 years of experience at an AMV-related site to qualify.

To apply, please pm me (CodeZTM) with the following information and the test that is listed below:

Username:
AMV Experience: (Please Describe)
Prior Judging Experience (Y/N, if Yes, explain):

Test:
To test your judging skills, I will ask you to rank the following videos from 1-5 (1 being the worst, 5 being the best), and justify their placements with written comments. Pretend like the theme round was “Create an Unconventional Romance video”.

________________

Theme Panel

Project OrgEditor is looking for 1-2 editors to work alongside myself (CodeZTM) to “test” the themes that I have planned for this year’s competition.

This position will act as a “suggestion/fixes” position. PM/Skype is a must.

Having been a prior contestant is a plus, but being a generally “creative” editor is also a good thing.

(Note: Being on the Theme Panel will bar you from competition)

Oh, and because somebody pointed this out to me, if you are unaware what Project OrgEditor IS, here is a link to last year's rules & FAQ.

Granted, a lot on that page is going to change, but a lot of the info in the first few paragraphs is still relevant.

In other words, theme panelists will make videos for each round before the contest to find problems? What would that timeframe look like?

Er, not exactly. I just basically run themes by the panelists and let them play devil's advocate and tell me what's wrong with them. Basically, they just tell me if they're do-able, but a big part of that would actually involve planning an amv, so sort of I guess.

Naturally. You can apply for multiple, especially since it's not guaranteed that you'll make it into just one.

You want someone to shoot down your ideas? I somehow feel uniquely qualified.

In all seriousness, I'd be bad at that - I actually liked the themes that people were the most vocally against last time.

Well, it might not be an issue of liking the themes, but more of making sure they're clear and easy to understand before they get to the competitors. For instance, I don't think anyone disliked the initial Round 4 theme, we were mostly confused on what we were even supposed to be doing.
