Ok guys....here are the rules for the LCC VI. They're the same as last year's. I heard everyone's request and I think it's safe to adjust some rules even if it is for just this year; Lightsaber Choreography Contest VI 1) We reserve the right to adjust, alter, add, remove, and downright screw with any rule that we choose. There is a reason for this. Circumstances change. We are not omnipotent. We cannot foresee every bump in the road. When things go bad, we have to do what's best for the contest. We will, however, do our best to keep things set in stone. 2) The new maximum compressed file size limit is set to 45 Mb or under. Also, all files have to be QuickTime. This is a standard format that we've always used and we see no reason to deviate. However you do have a choice of either compressing it with Sorenson 3 or H.264. Whichever will help you achieve the 45 Mb or under mark. 3) The new running times must come in under 7 minutes. Credits and opening titles, logos, etc., do not count against your time. 4) ENTRIES MUST BE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED. We can not stress this enough. We are not flexible on this rule. This one has been around from the beginning. 5) No single contestant extensions. If we reach the deadline and we deem that there are not enough entries received at the time, we may grant a small extension to try and accommodate as many as possible. 6) Go nuts. Use anything you want. Weapons, costumes, and yes a story too, if you like. As long as you meet the time limit criteria, we want to see what you have. Just make sure you remember that this IS a LIGHTSABER CHOREOGRAPHY contest. Have fun, guys. Contest starts Friday, February 1st 2008 and the deadline for entries is Sunday, June 1st 2008. I threw in an extra month. Your entry must be in my hands before 11:59:59 PM, EST Saturday May 31 2008. That's 8:59:59 PM, PST. Here are some answers to possible questions; I will not accept .WMVs, AVIs, .DIVXs, .FLVs or any other file type that isn't .MOV. Yes your entry will be disqualified if I see your entry posted somewhere else before the deadline of the LCC VI. Yes you can add effects you couldn't get in, AFTER the deadline and host it yourself. But only AFTER the deadline. No there will not be a DVD this year due to poor response and lack of know-how by new comers to TF.N last year. Yes there will be outsiders entering the contest. I've got a few emails from people that are interested. Their entry, like last year, will be marked "Non-TF.N Member". Finished Entries should be delivered to my LCC email with a link to either yousend or filefront to; ObiJuan2080@sabercomp.com I will also be available on AIM for file transfer if needed. There you go guys. I will answer any questions you may have.
