Noone says you have to use all 48 hours of it, right?

Me and Jasper had about that much for our original IC and I only used about 8-10 of those hours in one sitting :P

I'll have to check my schedule for this one... :roll:

The 48 hours is a max not what you're forced to do. I know you produce decent videos very quickly compared to, well, just about anyone so if you think two hours is all you need then just use two hours.

The problem with the typical 2 hours is that it often produces videos that has minor mistakes galore and comes to an abrupt stop after 30 seconds because the time limit was up. For example, I remember last years Acen where Nessie won with a theme of revolution. The judges said they voted for her because they could see her video was going somewhere. Which is true but it didn't actually get there because the time limit prevented her from finishing (at the IC at least). So I figured give more time and hopefully the result will be complete videos and an editor can polish it up a little instead of leaving in minor mistakes because of time pressure.

Besides, keeping track of 48 hours by when I send a PM and when the video is uploaded works fine. So someone loses half an hour because they didn't get my PM right away, no big deal. Trying to keep track of many people for just 2 hours where not getting something right away can make a big difference? I ain't even gonna try that.

You should have stuck to not using an example, cause the one you used is wrong hehe.
They voted for my video because of how I used the secret ingredient in accordance to the theme, Revolution. Not because the vid was going somewhere, because honestly my video wasn't going anywhere haha.

Not that unlike the other competitor, who was going nowhere fast due to the nature of the 'revolution' ^^

Lens Flare Nipples is still awesome though!

Ah, I'd like to join in on this. My schedule this week is hell, but I could start Sunday or Monday. Never worked on an IC before.

I can make it available elsewhere if you need. Although that is odd because I know others have successfully grabbed it before and after you. But whatever, if you want I can senduit or something.

No, it's not a problem on your end, my internet just doesn't want to stay up long enough to finish the download -_-; (dial up, yay).
I'll give it one more try tonight.
