Like last year I welcome you to join the IRON EFFECTS – Iron Chef. Here is a short introduction for the people who don’t know what this contest is about.
Many contests or ICs focus on themes like romance, fun and dance. This one though, is not about how well you can tell a story or how funny that guy in the anime gets beaten by a lady, no, the IE is about how well you can handle the given effects.

The categories:

Colorize the World:

Colors can leave strong impressions, even by absence.
Creating a mighty play of colors and not giving the viewer an epileptic seisure is the fine line between vomiting and rejoicing.

Sync your Lips:
A well-known discipline, where a single frame can wreck your whole video. An alternative way of thinking can make a huge difference in this category.

Text! This can either destroy a video or turn it into a masterpiece. It’s up to you if you use it as a supporting element of your video or as an easteregg.

1. 72 hours of editing time
2. You will decide the song pool
3. The songs will be distributed 1 hour before the start
4. Anime choice is up to you
5. Every anime you chose must be visible in your video
6. No logos, names, watermarks or similar things that indicate the name of the editor are allowed in the video
7. You will be told in which category you are, at the start of the editing time

Please send me your anime choice via a PM

Every contestant must send me 3 songs (1 for each category) until the deadline via PM.

Please pay attention that you send me a direct download link (Sendspace, Mediafire, FTP, etc.) and that your song has a good quality. You are NOT allowed to use your own songs! Every other song can be mixed, pitched or edited in any way you like.
The song length should be at least 1:30 min.

Times to deal with:
Animechoice 02.01.2013 – 20:00 (GMT +1)
Songchoice 02.01.2013 – 20:00 (GMT +1)
Start 02.01.2013 – 22:00 (GMT +1)
End 02.04.2013 – 22:00 (GMT +1)

Of course we have to choose a winner out of all those wonderful works and who could be better a better jury than those who are responsible for them? Every one of you gets a pre-compilation and an evaluation sheet to judge the videos. Of course you’re not allowed to judge your own video ¦>

Judged will be the following …
- execution oft the given effect
- quality of the given effect
- flow

If you want to join this contest, just say something like ”me“ or “joining” or anything that suits you.

To be fair, I won’t be participating in this contest.
“Galaxy Suit“ was edited last year in this very contest. :siffler:
