Project Name: Chroma Blitz
Style Of Music: Happy Hardcore/Drum 'N Bass
Coordinators: Kisanzi & Radical_Yue
Style/Theme: This MEP doesn't really have any theme other than...awesome As for the style, we're looking for heavily stylized editing as compared *insert pretty intro footage here* Granted, this doesn't mean that every track has to be an effects extravaganza but it would be nice to see our editors get creative and really own their tracks with some solid editing and maybe some custom effects. (Hint Hint - The title is "Chroma Blitz," maybe try something with color?)
We spent quite some time sifting through CDs to get together great selection of dynamic music that should prove really fun to edit to. We're looking for editors who will put in some serious time and dedication to really give life to some epic music and to have an awesome time in the process
This first deadline is just to make sure that you've actually got a concept and are working on the video. We're not asking for a masterpiece but as long as we can tell you've got something going on, we're good.
Semi-Final Beta: October 14th, 2011
By now, your track should have formed quite a bit more and we're looking to at least see the basic concept starting to be fleshed out.
The FINAL final: November 14th, 2011
At this time, if you're not done finished with the final version submitted...then feel free to say your goodbyes to friends and family members. You won't be joining them for the holidays.
About Deadlines: I'm the self-appointed deadline nazi. I understand that real life happens, so if you need an extension, you had better talk with me and we'll work something out. If we hear nothing from you and the deadlines comes and goes, consider yourself out. We're looking for editors who mean serious business, so if you can't bother to message me to say "It'll be a couple days late due to *insert real life problem here*" then you obviously don't really care about being in the project. I may be a harsh mistress, but I'm not unreasonable.

So, to audition simply post your top 3 favorite segments from "Absolute favorite, zomg I want this one" to "While it's not my first, I'd still be stoked to get this one."
Next to the segment you want please post any anime/series you currently have in mind for it so we can try to avoid multiple people that want to use the same sources. If you're not sure on your sources yet, feel free to update your original post later or you can not post any source ideas whatsoever. BUT, keep in mind...if someone else signs up for a segment and lays claim to the source that you ultimately decide on, they had first dibs so the source is theirs and you have to find something else.
In addition to posting the segments you want, please post 1-3 videos you feel would be good references for us. Either videos using similar styles of music or editing, or just the best you have to offer. These will be used to select who gets what segment and who is chosen as a back-up, so show off your best stuff!
Quick Note About the Auditions: I just want to state once more that the only reason we're doing this "Audition-Style" is so we can try to get a wide-variety of editors in on this project without turning it into a "first come first serve" MEP. So please, don't think "Oh, they think they're so hot that I have to AUDITION for their MEP?!" It's NOT like that at all >.>

ABOUT THE SEGMENTS: If any editor who auditions feels the need to edit multiple segments from the same track (like if you've got an awesome idea but you'd need the entire track to make it work) please note this when you audition. The coordinators will deliberate and it may be allowed if we feel the editor has the qualifications to pull it off. But please note, you can only ask for multiple segments if they are from the same track. In the event of drops/lack of interest, we may allow editors to take multiple segments from different tracks but we're leaving that as a "last resort" type of scenario.
My top 3 segments in order are:
Segment C - Shake Your Body pt. 1
Segment I - Wasteland pt. 1 (But I'd like the full track with pt. 2 if possible)
Segment N - Stargazer pt. 2
The Rules: We'll provide individual WAV audio for each segment, with the full length of the audio you need to edit to. Please fill all your audio with some kind of footage, just keep in mind that the first and last 1-3 seconds of your segments may be used for Transitions. We have overlapped all tracks by a few seconds to allow play for transitions.
NO DRAGON BALL/DRAGON BALL Z/DRAGON BALL GT/DRAGON BALL KAI
No YOKO BOX
NO LIVE ACTION
NO DUPLICATE SOURCES.
YOU'RE ALLOWED TO USE MULTI-ANIME BUT IF ANOTHER EDITOR HAS ALREADY LAID CLAIMS TO A SOURCE AS THEIR PRIMARY, PLEASE DON'T RE-USE IT. IF THE SOURCE WAS CHOSEN BY A PREVIOUS EDITOR AS A COLLECTION OF MULTI-ANIME, WE'LL LET IT FLY AS LONG AS THE SAME SCENES ARE NOT REUSED.
Frame rate: 29.97fps
Codec: Lagarith or Uncompressed AVI
Audio: Doesn't really matter since we'll be replacing it with the HQ mastermix
NOTE: If you use fullscreen 4:3 footage, make sure to properly crop/resize your source to fit the project resolution.
Video Quality: We've got nothing against old sources, but if it's got grain or macro-blocking and you're unable to obtain higher quality, please abstain from using it as a source.
Transitions: We highly encourage you to contact the editors who have the tracks before/after yours and work out some transitions with them. This process tends to make the tracks look much smoother. If you are unable to do so and can't not seem to communicate with your fellow editors, Kisanzi and I will create transitions for your tracks. (More Kisanzi than me...he has teh skillz >.>)
PLEASE REMEMBER TO DEINTERLACE/FILTER YOUR FOOTAGE BEFORE YOU EDIT AND SUBMIT
YOUR FINAL TRACK. YOUR TRACKS WILL NOT BE FILTERED AFTER WE RECEIVE THEM.
Here are some quick signature banners we threw together for you guys to use, if you wish to do so. If anyone would like to make more, please PM them to me and I will list them in this post.
That's the jist of it Post any questions or comments below in the thread.
