At last, about time! :D By the way... i have to say this. I don't want to seem like a bad person but... I expected more renown editors. All i see in the brackets are newcomers and not so famous members that tried to take their chance. I would do the same if i were them, of course, but... it all happened so quick. It would be a total exaggeration to make it a 128-members tournament (even though it would be filled up very quickly, imo) but... what the hell. It's still a challenge... i hope.

Let's say you're right :
It's a great opportunity for theses newcomers to improve 'cause they'll have to edit the best way they can in only one week so that they're not disqualified ^^

You know that biggest surprises comes in small packs, perhaps it's time to discover new rookies 8-)

You will be given multiple options to submit your video for judging. The contest is not blind so you will either be able to use the FTP info that will be provided to you by me, upload your video to the org, or use a different upload site such as sendspace, mediafire, etc...to deliver your video to me so it can be presented to the judges.

sirmichaelvalentine wrote:Article 3 4.9 You MUST use the audio that is provided to you...then as you scroll down it says...Article 8: Each entrant will be required to submit at least 5 songs that they wish to edit with...im confused here so witch is it do i have to use a song that is given or can i pick 5 songs as it says.


All entrants are submitting 5 songs. Those 5 songs are being thrown into a very large pool and then randomly assigned to a bracket. By submitting your 5 song selections, it's a very small chance for you to actually get to edit to a song you submit, but then again, it's also very possible it won't be used at all or it will be assigned to a different group bracket. The song your bracket is assigned is the song you must edit with.

So basically, I'll be getting about 320 songs but only a fraction of those will be used :O

You are allowed to use whatever anime you want. Multi-anime videos are allowed. As long as it fits the rules, then you can use it.

I won't be expanding the brackets at this time. Better luck next year :P However, the goals I had in mind for this tournament were:
1) Have an amazing time with this kick ass contest. I ADORED it when it was done by the French and I'm really looking forward to seeing what other people can do.
2) Bring in new members and get them involved in the community.

What people don't seem to realize or notice is that while yes, we have got a decent amount of "new people" in the contest, while some of these are actually brand new editors, some are actually editors from other sites such as AMV France or youtube who have been editing for quite a while now but have never actually been active on the org. Besides, having two different editor of the years thrown in there isn't enough for you guys? ;)



As for everyone that is still trying to sign up, we are already full but if a slot opens up in the group you are requesting between now and the time before that group has to edit, you may be contacted as a replacement.

Let me know if you guys have any other questions. |:>


Note: If you would like to join both The Quickening and CodeZTM's Project Org Editor, Code is allowing people editing in both contests to get to edit "early" if they so choose to do so (assuming that there will be overlap in our weeks).

FYI, the last quickening at amv-france had some problems because some people sent some very hard/bad music to edit, maybe to "troll" the other editors, i dunno. so please, send EDITABLE music. :mrgreen:

yeah, I was just about to say that. Also, everyone should remember that even though the odds you getting stuck with your own song selection is low, it is still a possibility. And if everybody tries to troll the contest, then what's the point of even having it? I actually pickd songs of future projects that I hope to edit someday. So if I end up getting my own choice, I already have a storyboard in mind for it.
