Editors, you might have heard hints of a new contest by now, and with the POE:TTT break in November you knew something would come. Here it is, a new AMV France contest, TGS 2012 : MEP Battle - Choose your leader (The "T" there stands for Toulouse :-p)
This year, this will be exclusively a team tournament and, like the Quickening, it'll be only one week long; more precisely, if you take part in it you'll be editing from November 5th to 11th 11:59pm.
But wait, it's not as simple as it looks! Here's the concept :
YOU HAVE EXACTLY UNTIL OCTOBER 24TH TO REGISTER!
Why? Because you'll have to vote for your team leaders! Hu, what? Team leaders? Yeah, exactly, TGS 2012 concept is simple, like the election for the next American president, teams will be made by a sort of electoral college... in this case, team leaders!
You register until October 24th 2012
Once we reach the date of registration, you'll have until October 31st included to vote for a precise number of people you think deserve to be team leaders. Don't worry, your vote will be entirely anonymous, only coordinators who won't take part in the contest will have access to statistics.
Once team leaders are chosen, they will join non-participant coordinators on skype and, like you used to do when you were kids, they'll choose members they want in their teams one by one. Here again, there won't be anybody else on skype except for the team leaders, judges, and non-participant coordinators. What will be said in this skype conv will stay between them.
I'M NOT DONE YET : A music pack with as many genres as possible will be given and you will have to edit using only music from it. You'll have to mix several songs in the pack together (like an audio mashup / mix) and your video has to be 4 minutes long.
Note that I won't give numbers when it comes to votes, members in each team or the number of songs you'll have to use because it depends on how many people will subscribe.
If you worry about being in POE:TTT, once again, you don't have to, because Code puts the contest on a break especially for this contest!
Who will be the judges?
This year, there will be 3 judges, R_1, Emy and myself, MimS.
Finally, obviously, the best videos will be shown during the TGS convention on the big screen.
