Gentlemen…maybe a lady or two, the LCC XI is upon us...again...for the eleventh time and with more bold letters than ever before! Hmmmm...The 11th LCC, the 11th Doctor...I'm sure this is leading up to something. Anyway,the rules remain the same, so here we go: 1) We reserve the right to adjust, alter, add, remove, and downright screw with any rule that we choose, and this year, we did just that! 2) "Personal Uploading" is now the norm. You can upload your entry to your personal YouTube page as "UNLISTED". Remember, it's very important to make your entry (link) "UNLISTED" so that the only people who can view your entry, will be the only people who you gave the link to. After making your entry "UNLISTED" the link must be sent to me via e-mail. This means that there is no longer file size limits. It's your page, make the entry the highest quality of HD you can. 3) Your entry cannot have more than five views before the deadline approaches. Upload it, check it, do what you have to do but do it within 5 views, but you can't send it to other people before and a little after the deadline. Remember, the contest doesn't OFFICIALLY end until after the Judges reviews. Only then can you start changing your entries from "UNLISTED" to "PUBLIC". 4) Running times must come in under 10 minutes. Credits and opening titles, logos, etc., will count against your time limit with the exception of the bumper. This rule went into effect because of a few entries we had to disqualify over the years that had longer credits and opening titles than it should be. Opening titles should NOT be 1 min. long or over guys, come on. 5) Use any weapons you want in addition to Lightsabers. Just remember, Lightsabers are the focus of the Choreography. 6) 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. This rule also goes for Fan Films. We will not accept Lightsaber fight scenes that were meant for Fan Films, previously released or not. This, again, goes for entries you meant to release in the last LCC, but couldn't due to time constraints. Your entry MUST be made for the LCC XI and LCC XI alone as for any other LCC's. 7) 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. 8) Make a story if you want or just go in fighting. 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 Monday, April 1th, 2013 and the deadline for entries is Sunday, September 8th, 2013. Once again, I gave everyone an extra "free" month. Use this free month for planning your entry. Your entry must be in my hands before 11:59:59 PM, EST Sunday September 1, 2013. That's 8:59:59 PM, PST. Here are some answers to possible questions; I will time chase scenes, dialogue and anything else that's NOT Choreography. If they are longer than the Choreography itself, you will be disqualified. There should never be chase scenes, dialogue, etc... that's longer than the choreography. That's a No-no. Yes your entry will be disqualified also if I see your entry posted somewhere else before the deadline of the LCC XI. This is a huge rule. Yes there will be outsiders via Facebook joining the TF.Ners who are entering the contest again this year. The scoring system will be the same as before (1st place will get 3 points, 2nd place will get 2 points and 3rd place will get 1 point). Questions and the Unlisted Links when your entries are done, are to be sent to my email at; firstname.lastname@example.org Please send your e-mails with the subject line "LCC XI Question" for questions and/or "LCC XI Unlisted Link" for the link to your finished entry. Good Luck, don't hurt yourself, have fun and May The Force Be With You All.
