Congratulations on making it through the previous round. You've told an excellent after story, and I feel like you've mastered the art of showing us the best and worst of humanity.
I digress. Now I want to see how well you can work with another editor!
Theme Execution CriteriaRound Framework wrote: For this fourth round of the competition, editors must make a "collaborative" video with another member in the competition. When I say "collaborative", I mean one solid AMV created by 2 AMV editors.
Because this can require more time and planning, I am giving editors more time for this round. 2 whole weeks, in fact. I believe this is enough time to help any and all timing conflicts that may arise if editors have time zone or scheduling issues.
Editors may elect to use one or multiple sources of audio or video. It is up to them entirely.
I will pm you your partners that were determined by RNG and number generation by other users. Do not share this information please.
Example Video: This video displays a great collaborative effort that shows how well 2 editors can come together and create one cohesive piece.
Each round, 30 points of your possible scores are awarded to the execution of the theme. What does this mean for this round?
Editors will be awarded more points for how well they combined their talents to create one cohesive peice that amazes and astounds.
It should also be noted that partners will SHARE their points for this round. So if team A gets 400 points, then both members will get 400 points for their fourth round score. Therefore, working together and compromise are important things.
For this round, we will eliminate 4 editors.
Should 4 or more editors drop in this round, we will adjust the number of eliminations.
Should less than 4 editors drop, we will only eliminate the number of competitors that make up the difference. [For example, if 1 editor dropped, we will only eliminate 3 editors]
1) No anime restrictions. Live action and non-anime animation is permitted.
2) No audio restrictions.
3) I will personally send you FTP information as soon as it is updated.
4) Deadline is July 13th at 11:59 PM Central Time. Judging will begin on July 14th and run through July 15th. Results will be posted when all judging is complete, or on July 16th, whichever comes first.
I hope this is more understandable and agreeable to everyone.
I also feel for the fourth round, that the difficulty of working together in a time crunch would be worthy of the semi-semi finals. The difficulty curve is supposed to go "up" over time.
I've also given more time to work with this round, since I don't expect to see masterpieces in just one week.
