Pre-screening will be held on June 30th.

ConnectiCon's Pre-screening Policy
All videos which have not been disqualified are shown to a group of pre-screeners. These pre-screeners are staff members of the convention who volunteer their time to watch and score the videos. The pre-screening is a dry event (although last year we had copious amounts of cookies to make up for the lack of alcohol). Some of the pre-screeners have experience with video editing either in professional or amateur endeavors, but most do not. Last year we had 10 pre-screeners and 3 were editors. Staff members who submit videos to the contest are ineligible to attend the pre-screening.
Each pre-screener is asked to judge the video on a 1 to 10 scale, 10 being best. If a video is SO terrible that we can't stand to watch it to the end, a vote is called to skip the video. This vote must be unanimous for the motion to pass. If even one pre-screener believes that the video has merit, it will be watched in its entirety. In the event of a skipped video, said video automatically receives a zero from all judges. Last year a total of 31 videos (out of 73) were skipped. The judges were not liberal with this policy and in-depth discussion takes place any time a motion to skip is called.
After the convention is over I will provide judging scores via PM to those who ask, and will give my own personal opinion on the video if requested. Please be aware that I WILL be honest. If we skipped your video I will not sugar-coat this... but I WILL tell you why I think it received such a poor reception and provide constructive criticism, if you want it.

Excellent! Glad to have you back this year!

Please do note though that the limit is 2 videos if you're not planning on attending the convention. It is 3 if you are coming. :)

Passing to that info now. I got high hopes about the CTcon this year. One of the vids submitted haven't been premiered yet in the org so this is the first con it will go and my first try at a different category.

Just in case: I tend to have problems with the internet so I'll post here in case I have problems with the uploads. Uploading now...

Yep, I can work with that. If it does present a problem when I try to convert it I will let you know.

Tritio, got em both and they play fine! I'll send you a confirmation email once I convert them!

Damn, I'm slacking... :P

If it gets closer to the deadline and I haven't sent anything, just poke me over PM; I might get distracted with prepping for AnimeNEXT.
