TRWYP 2010 [Also Win $100] - Deadline: passed

Postby SQ » Fri Apr 30, 2010 8:06 pm

This runs independently from the other "Win $100 for your AMV Contest".
Blame Kitsuner for getting me to bring this one back. If you absolutely loathe pokemon or can't come up with an idea for this contest, I highly advise you go over to the Other thread, which may or may not have more possibilities/creative freedom.

It's twisted, it's fucked up.. It's BACK! .....AGAIN!

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.
TRWYP, which is actually a contest, began it's somewhat less than humble beginnings in 2004 with a prize of $50. The challenge? Make a "serious" AMV without using the pokemon anime to the Pokemon (American) OST's "Double Trouble (Team Rocket)" song. It then surfaced again with many of the same rules in 2005 with a $100 prize with the required use of "Pokemon(Dance Mix)". Now in 2010 it's back.
I went through many possibilities after Kitsuner mentioned he missed TRWYP in my other $100 prize thread. I went through four different pokemon soundtracks, and finally I just said to hell with it- We'll go back to the beginning. We're going to go back to using the Team Rocket song again.

It's been 7 years, only one person entered the first time, so we should be good to go. Right? OK. 8)

So for those in need of a recap:
TRWYP is not a project, it is a contest.
I give you a song from the Pokemon OST - In this case, "Double Trouble (Team Rocket)" - And you make it. You lose, you lose. You win, you get 100 bucks (USD). This will be given to you via Paypal or amazon emailed gift card.

Shouldn't FLCL be on the list of shows we can't use, since that was the last winning TRWYP video?

In any case, I'll see what I can whip up.

Shit, it was.
My bad.
Yes, that should also be barred. I'll edit it in now.
Thanks. Px

This is for 2004's first TRWYP, which used this same song. It's no longer available for download and it won by default as it was the only entry.

In 2005, the song changed to the Pokemon Dance Mix. UnlimitedRice won again, but it was a very close call. There were three entrants, Unlimited, Kitsuner, and NME. NME was disqualified.


NME's was DQ'ed as it did not meet the 2:30 minimum time limit for that particular contest (this year the minimum is only 2 minutes) and my speakers didn't pick out that the song still said "Pokemon" after he remixed it(which was one of the rules). This year I decided to avoid that entirely and disallow remixing of the song.

I thought winning money was a big 'no-no' in the AMV universe? I know gift cards seem to be OK.

It is kind of a no-no for sanctioned events, but the last two times I ran this, I didn't have any problems.

Oh sweet niblets, the deadline's been extended. June 30th should be pretty doable, even with the source I'm using.

(EDIT: Oh, maybe I was looking at the other deadline for this contest.)
