Round 1 End
The themes will be posted a couple hours before the actual start date of the round (as indicated by the countdown), as the norm with all my contests. Entrants can begin working as soon as the themes are up.
The way things have been set up, Round 1 will begin with relatively easy themes to do within the week and step it up a bit each round.
Themes will vary with audio restrictions, source restrictions, effects work, and quite a bit more. Remember that while your team can select any 3 themes out of the 5 available, each video has to be a different genre and theme.
3 Different Videos. 3 Different Genres. 3 Different Themes.
Split the work up however you please within your team.
Note: You may NOT post or upload your videos on any sites (Youtube, The Org, etc.) until the judging has been completed.
Non-Competing - I will be accepting non-competing solo entries from those who couldn't find a team. They will not be judged but I will post them along with all the others every round.
Non-Competing entries are expected to follow the exact same rules as the competitors.
Good luck and have fun.
Round 1 Themes
I Love That Song - Make a video with one of the following songs provided by the judges.
Jump Around! - Make a video using a series/movie that has either appeared in Shonen Jump or Shojo Beat.
Multi-anime is allowed but all sources must meet the theme.
List of all series to appear in Shonen Jump
List of all series to appear in Shojo Beat
Intro City - Make a video that parodies/mimics an anime or tv show opening. Parodying a Live Action TV show is fine. The same audio/visual style is required but credits are NOT required.
A link to the original credits being parodied is required. This theme is an exception to the time limit rule since not all intros are a full 1:30.
Example of a video parodying the Bleach Intro.
The beginning of this video parodies Law & Order. (Original Law and Order Intro)
Magical Girls Without The Magic - Make a video using a magical girl source but use no scenes of the characters as magical girls. This means none of their signature costumes, attacks, magic or anything!
List of Magical Girl series suggestions.
Good Old Days - Make a video with absolutely NO effects, zooms, color changes, etc. Only fades, hardcuts and speed adjustments are allowed.
Example of a video that only uses crossfades/hardcuts.
Another example of No-Effects.
Yet another example!
