Want to know what kind of madness you can expect? Check out last year's Round 1 videos.
Video Genre: Character Profile
Music Genre: Country/Rap/Punk
Special Requirement: There’s That One Episode In Every Show…
Video must feature at least 10 seconds of characters at the beach.
A Character Profile video is an AMV that focuses on a single character and displays either who they are or their story.
Your character profile doesn't have to be cannoical. If you wish to make up a custom story then you're welcome to do so.
No punk/country remixes. Remixes do not count since it changes the genre of the song. Rap remixes are ok.
The character you are profiling does not have to appear in the beach scenes. Although this is not advised since a character profile not featuring your character may hurt your score.
The character can not be an innanimate object, it must be alive.
Here is a bit of help if you're having a hard time finding beach episodes.
Indoor beaches count.
If you are uncertain of what a beach is, here is the wikipedia article on beaches.
At the start of each round 3 wheels will be spun to determine each requirement listed above. There will be a livestream that you can watch here: http://original.livestream.com/radical_yue
Once the wheels have been spun the requirements will be posted here in the thread with a FAQ concerning the Special Requirement. If you are unsure about whether or not your song meets the genre requirement, you have 48 hours from the round start to PM Kisanzi to verify your song is OK. His stamp of approval is NOT REQUIRED if you know your song fits the genre. The song checks exists only as confirmation when there is uncertainty. Remember that your AMV must be at least 1:30 excluding credits, and 1:30 must meet the song criteria.
Countdown to Round 1 End
