Anyone that's been following the Choreography Update thread knows that we've been delaying the process for some time now. That couldn't be helped and it was a rather unfortunate incident. We apologize for the delay. Work, relationships, and just life in general tend to get in the way sometimes. I has started a new job as an editor for a brand new Production House not too recently, JBK is a very busy man in his field of work and Sage's job takes him away for half the month at a time so his time is very limited too. JBK has decided to take a few steps back to concentrate on his own stuff, but is still willing to help out with a couple things if need be. Meaning, don't PM him with anything as all he will do is redirect the messages to Sage and myself. This year, we plan on using a few more marketing tools to help get this contest's name out there. TFN is our home and will always be so but branching out never hurt anyone. Please remember, this is a friendly contest and no flaming will be tolerated. Do unto others, etc. So, enough with the explanations and on with what you've all been waiting on. Welcome to LCC V, gentleman and ladies of the forum. Lightsaber Choreography Contest V 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 maximum compressed file size limit is, as usual, set to 30 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 30 Mb or under mark. 3) All running times must come in under 5 minutes. Credits and opening titles, logos, etc., do not count against your time. 4) ENTRIES MUST BE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED. We are not flexible on this rule. This one has been around from the beginning. Nothing new. 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, throwing your little brother at the camera. Whatever. This is something new. Want to tell a story? Do so. 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 Thursday, February 1st and the deadline for entries is Tuesday, May 1st. Your entry must be in our hands before 11:59:59 PM, EST that day. That's 4:59:59 AM, GMT and 8:59:59 PM, GMT. Yes, we will be hosting again this year. We'll also be accepting applications for a panel of Judges. Please PM or contact us via the contests myspace page at: http://www.myspace.com/sabercomp if you think you may be qualified. Any other questions you may have that aren't answered in this thread may be PM'ed to myself (ObiJuan2080) or to Sage_Halcyon. I'm sure I've left something out here so make sure you check back for updates periodically. Thank you all for being so patient with us. Let's see what you guys have to show us! The films are up! Continue the discussion in the official thread.
