Seriously, sitting through these three and a half or so minutes is the equivalent of slow torture. I'd sacrifice a finger to ensure that I would NEVER have to watch this again.

I'm gonna watch it again. :D


It started early 2004. Editors clamored together, threw up, and quit. One person finished and won by default.

That still doesn't stop me from making another one with a better prize.
Another one with a harder song.
Another one that is so demented it'll have you going "Is it really worth the money?"

You, Not-yet-professional editor and/or hobbyist. Yes, you. Squint really hard at this.

I am giving you $100(USD) to make a video with the song of my choice.

I am commissioning you, sir friend. Fuck up your brain for me. GO. DO IT.


For those who are new, or have no idea what I am talking about, TRWYP is not a project. It is a contest.
I give you one majorly fucked up song from the Pokemon OST - Last time it was "Double Trouble(Team Rocket)" - and you make it. You lose, you lose. You win, you get one hundred bucks to spend however you like. Donate it to the org, make me your bitch to buy something from online, make me send you a money order.

This year's theme is: SERIOUS
Okay, so it's the same as last time's.
However, in TRWYP v1.0, Serious was only preferred. Now it is a requirement.

This year's song is: Pokemon(Dance Mix)
Indirect links in .rar archives:
~4mb mp3(for listening) |~30mb .wav(for editing)
--------------

RULES:
- The video you make cannot be a comedy/parody
- The video must have a serious-theme
- The video cannot be NC-17 or higher (rated)
- The anime must be owned by you, not downloaded illegally; no fansubs
- No Bobo-bo (sorry, Add)
- You CAN have video games or cartoons, but no live-action
- It doesn't have to be just one video source
- You have to have some type of source (No ErMaC DDR AMVs)
- You must use the song I supply, you can edit it's length to no shorther than two minutes thirty seconds, you cannot add any other music/sounds to the music I provide
- If you win, you can buy whatever you want with the money I give you through me or I give you a money order. (I will not buy things rated above NC-17)
- If you do edit the song, it must have at least one instance of "Pokemon" in the song that is comprehensible.

PRIZES:
1st Place: 100 USD (last year it was only 50, ha)
2nd Place: Mad Dog 24x DVD-Rom
3rd Place: RDS 2005 AWA DVD + Studio Gaijin's '04-'05 AWA DVD(somehow I got two of both of these 0o)
Participated: Up to five gmail invites. (As long as I don't get over 60 people competing, this should be fine)

DEADLINE:
MARCH 7, 2006


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
You must SUBSCRIBE TO THIS THREAD OMG.
Everything is posted in this thread; there will be no email updates.
I will not contact you personally unless I feel I have to.
This is my money you're winning, if you don't dedicate your time in trying to win it, or pay attention to this thread, then I'm not going to go out of my way to give you my money. Deal with it.
Most people offer a certain boxset for their contests, or a specific item as a prize, I am offering you whatever you want in a certain pricerange, so I think I can have a little more leeway as to contacting you.

Other information will be given out upon request.

FAQ

Q: Can I remix the song?
A: Yes, as long as I can hear "Pokemon" at least once.

Q: Can I have my studio bumper in the video?
A: Yes. I'm judging by what I like best, it's not blind or anything.

Q: Can I upload it somewhere and show it off before the deadline?
A: Yes. Just make sure you give me the link so I know you finished.

Q: I'm really stuck. I want to end the song early, but I really suck at audio editing. Can I just cut it off?
A: Audio editing, since even I suck at it, is not really judged. It's just the video content and how well it flows with what you did. So if you fade out or cut it off, that's fine, and it won't count against you. Just make sure it's AT LEAST 2 minutes and 30 seconds long.

Q: Will you beta test my videos? You know, since it's your contest and I really really want to win?
A: Normally I'd say yes, but I'm going through a really busy time right now. If you can get a hold of me at a time when I can actually DO it, then I'll try and help you. I will NOT say "i like/ do not like this" or comment on the story. I'll just tell you technical points related to synch.
If you do really really want me to beta test it, email me a .wmv file that is 20mb or less. It won't be instantaneous, but I can get around to it that way.
Otherwise, just read my guide on action synch. That's basically where I stand on all of it.

Q: OK, I'm putting my video in the database. Who should I put for the artist of the song?
A: Pokemon 2.B.A. Master OST or Siegler & Loeffler. Yes, the title of the song really is "Pokemon(Dance Mix)". XP Siegler & Loeffler are two different artists who I guess collaborated on this song. The booklet itself just says "Siegler/Loeffler". Otherwise, here's all the information on the song, and you can decide who to put it under:
Lead Vocal: Vicki Sue Robinson
BG Vocals: Russel Velazquez, John Loeffler, Louis Cortelessi, Ken Cummings, Vicki Sue Robinson, Curtis King.
Guitar: Larry Saltzman
Congas: Premananda Johannes
Co-produced and arranged by: John Siegler.

I have you know I had a hard time picking between those two.

I wanted you all to suffer.
But at the same time, I didn't want to suffer too much.

I'll leave PokeRap for when you guys don't have to make a serious video. ;)
(Dance mix is my favorite, too)

Pfft. Just draw your own pokemon on crack or something.

Actually, now that I think about it, Sailor moon and the sailor scouts would probably work.
Or saint Seiya, Digimon, Megaman, Monster Rancher, Saiyuki...

Edit: Yes you can join. I was actually looking forward to it. Your last video was really good, despite being the only one in the contest :lol:

I think I can do this (debates between whether to use Lain, Samuria X, or Trigun).

Do we just post the link via the org or E-mail you a seperate source?

Alright you guys, after some serious thought the prize has gone down to only $100. But that's still double of what it was last year.

I also decided on a 2nd prize, mainly because I got lucky.
Second prize is a Mad Dog 24x DVD-Rom. If you don't like it, you could always pawn it. XD
Although the second prize isn't final. I sent them my drive under warranty, they replaced it with two new drives.. They both appear to be new and fixed, the letters with both of them said they were new and fixed.. I have to see if they both work.

But if they do, then it will be the second prize. XP
