Thanks to everyone who has submitted videos since I posted this thread. I have gotten an amazing response.
I am officially NO LONGER doing the begging-for-videos thing, because I now actually have more videos than I'll have time to show
at the contest. So I will be trimming out a few "fourth choice" videos. But I guarantee that everyone will have at LEAST one video shown in the competition (but most probably 2 or 3) unless all of their entries were designated by them as "non-competitive."
I will try to arrange time for overflow videos to be shown at another time during the con. I didn't expect such a great turnout, and I owe it to all you guys. Thanks a lot!
By the way... for those of you who still intend to submit videos, don't worry. I haven't put a cork in the entry box. You can still send in videos until July 25th, when I will take the FTP servers offline and no longer accept any submissions.
But I no longer
need people to send in their videos just to help fill the contest time block.
