I'm going to try my luck and start this up.
Here's the idea:
Pick an anime and make a :30-1:00 segment about the "Odd pair." By odd pair I mean two people that aren't actually a couple from the anime. Here's an example of dos and don'ts from Full Metal Panic:
Do: Sousuke and Mao
Don't: Sousuke and Kaname
Iffy: Sousuke and Tessa
Choice of couples need to be a boy/girl pair and must come from the same anime. Also they need to be generally humanoid (cat girls are ok, cats are not). I'll leave the loving of animals for another time and another MEP.
Here are the more technical aspects of things:
-Dimensions will be 720 x 480 with a framerate 29.97.
-DVD quality video only, and no watermarks/logos.
-Finals will by in HuffyUV or Lagarith with uncompressed audio.
-Betas can be in any format but DivX/XviD is preferred.
-Aspect ratio will be 4:3, so if the video doesn't fit the ratio, letterbox it.
-Content of segments must be orgable.
<strike>Betas will be due October 15th and finals will be due on December 15 with a release date hopefully around Christmas.</strike>
edit-After a vote, it has been agreed that this time of year is way too hectic for everyone to keep up with deadlines. And this is supposed to be fun! So all deadlines have been postponed until after the holidays.
Unless there is a major interest in this I want to limit this to 15 segments, but each editor can do up to 2 tracks. No repeats on anime, so it's first come, first serve.
Here is the format for segments:
Song: Pleasure Slave
Anime: Full Metal Panic
Couple: Kurtz and Mao
