СообщениеДобавлено: Сб Апр 16, 2016 10:41 am    Заголовок сообщения: Rules of Level Up 2016 (English) Ответить с цитатой holds the seventh thematic contest of Level Up series. The main idea behind the contest is to join forces of pro and novice music video creators and make them work in pairs. Partners exchange experience, and novice gains new skills in video making from his/her "elder" teammate, thus increasing his/her level drastically. As the previous contests (2009, 2011,2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015) showed, this concept draws much interest of creators as well as of viewers' audience.

In case you have some questions concerning the contest, you may contact the main organizer via the private message: Turbo

Thе contest is opened for pairs of AMV makers, Pro (experienced and acknowledged creator) + Novice (a beginner without significant achievements). A team’s goal is to create a small AMV through joint efforts, with the assumption that Pro doesn’t do editing and does not work on effects but does what he/she can to support the Novice technically.

Novice’s duties include: project settings adjustment, clips cutting, making of effects, AMV encoding and making of preview

Pro’s duties include: thinking the AMV concept over together with Novice, software using advice, advice on effects making, help in searhing for sources, beta testing, advice on video encoding, video upload and filling in the site form

Contest schedule
1) Registation of pairs till June 15th, 2016
2) Submission of videos from July 1st till August 1st, 2016

Supplementary rules:
1) If a participant is a prize winner (in any category) of AMVNews: Big Contest, AKROSS Con or CreaCon contest series, he/she cannot register as Novice
2) A Pro can participate in several teams (but no more than 3)
3) You can register as Pro, as Novice or as a pair Pro+Novice
4) Pro is obliged to provide links to his/her videos. Novices are recommended to do so, because Pros rarely choose totally unexperienced Novices.
5) As the number of Pros is rather limited, we recommend Novices to contact a Pro you want to work with directly (via private message, for example) with a request to participate in contest together.

Signing up for the contest

You can register in a special topic on forum

You can sign up as an individual participant, in this case you must choose one of the following groups:

1) Novice group – can participate only as Novice
2) Pro group – can participate only as Pro
3) Unsure – leaves it to the contest organizers to decide what team to sign him/her into.

Or you can register as a pair formed on previous agreement

Registration as an individual participant does not bind you to anything, it’s just a preliminary list. When your name appears in the list of participants, it is only to show the other contestants that you wish to take part in the event. There will be no random pairs of participants. You must define your partner and register for the contest as a pair up to the deadline, which is the 31st of December. Videos will only be accepted from registered pairs.
