After intense discussion/argument, we have come to a majority vote: the winner is video number FIVE, with the runner-up being video number TWO.
Ns summer edit from charles labbe on Vimeo.Great work to all who were involved, and to the five finalists, congratulations again for making it this far. You all reaped the rewards of the contest; you should all be very proud and satisfied.
Now without further ado, letís move on to the next theme:
Sticking with the theme of seasons, this rendition of the contest is about fall. Over the past couple weeks Iíve been watching the leaves change colors here, and I think it leads us well in the direction of winter. The object of this contest is to portray fall. You can do this in any number of ways Ė leaves, school settings, apple picking Ė things that represent and signify fall for you. However, Iím going to ask you to once again avoid anything skiing. There will be contests based on skiing later. Iím really excited to see these, as I think you all have a lot of potential and good material to submit. As for me, fall is my favorite season to shoot, so Iím considering throwing something together myselfÖ
1) No footage pulling! You must shoot/edit all new stuff!
2) Videos must be uploaded to www.vimeo.com
3) Time limit: 1 minute (we'll be a little stricter this time).
4) Must abide by the theme. If it clearly doesn't, it will be disqualified.
5) Only one submission per member, please.
6) Like mentioned above, no skiing.
The contest will run from now,9/30/2010 until 10/14/2010. After that, the submissions will be voted on by the general NS public for ONE WEEK and the 5 top videos will move on. After that, 4 judges Ė myself and three "celebrity" judges - will critique the videos to provide the finalists with meaningful and one-on-one feedback on their work. In the meantime, they will vote on those five videos and come up with a winner.
Good luck all, and happy shooting!
Again, submissions will not be accepted after October 14th @ 11:59 EST
