Competition FAQ

March 26th, 2010

Numerous people have asked us questions about the competition, so we thought we’d post an FAQ section here.

Q: What is the deadline?

A: May 5, 2010 is the new deadline

Q: I only see an intro and outro in the competition download pack. Where is the rest of the video? Do I just sound design over a black screen?

A: Actually, you are required to make your own video as well as design a soundtrack for this competition.  As we’re giving away the AVID Media Composer as well as Pro Tools, we are requiring not just audio, but video, too.

Q: Can we collaborate with other people?

A: We strongly encourage you to collaborate with fellow filmmakers, editors, even actors or animators. The grand prize (turnkey post system) contains a great set of equipment that can help get any basic Audio/Video post studio up and running.

Q: Does the video have to be original?

A: You can use un-original material but you must credit the source and copyright owner either in the video itself or a credit list that you send to us.
