To Celebrate this new year , I am conducting a Live Action music video contest Called "LIVE IN '05" , catagories will be subjecated according to your taste ranging from action , comedy , drama , and horror. its up to you.
The first place winner will recieve a Philips DVP642 DivX-Certified Progressive-Scan DVD Player , The perfect companion to the avid amv'r whether you watch them or edit them. its great for standalone playback without the hassle of having to do a bunch of encoding and authoring , i have 2 myself. Runner ups wll recieve media such as DVDR/RW and CDR/rw depending on your system. specs on the player can be found here

REquirements: Must be live action , duh. Filesize: really i dont care as long as its reasonable , no 300mb vids unless you work for Imax or some shit
File format : frankly here i dont care either as long as if its something not widely used that you notify us and inform us where to acquire it. source footage: again , its up to you. the cleaner the better.
Deadline: may 8th ( reason for a later date is in case any of you are in the middle of a project or just started one ,or have enough on your plate for right now) If we feel that we have enough entries we might alter the deadline date but we wanna give people a chance and time to do a good job.
If you have never edited with live action and need a break from anime vids , I recommend you give it a shot !! Especially if any of you are struggling to come up with a good concept for an amv at the moment , it might be a good break from the stress.
people with no hosting , your vids can be hosted temporarily at www.yousendit.com
for 7 days or until 25 downloads , which should be plenty for the judges to recieve them. You can host up to 1gb on there!!!
winners also have the option to have their master copy put on a promo dvd for widowmaker productions' contests
If this sounds like something your interested in, by all means take part.
If this contest is somewhat of a success then our next contest will have better prizes such as dual layer dvd burners and video cards .
Best of luck to everyone
