    URU Music Video Contest!!!

    When : May 1st - May 31st

    Where : All Music Videos will be posted in the Great Tree Shard Gallery
    http://www.greattreeshard.org/gallery/

    ---

    Been thinking about making an URU related music video? Well here is a chance to show off your creative talent. I encourage as many people to take part in this as possible. It will be a lot of fun as well as good advertising for the game we all love.

    Rules and other words of wisdom:

    1. Absolutely no pornographic/obscene content and you must follow all forum and gallery rules. This includes foul language in songs.

    2. Files may not exceed 30 MB. Be considerate in file size. People on dialup most likely are not going to want to download a bunch of really large videos. You can make a 3-4 minute music video in less than 10 MB if you compress things right.

    3. A winner will be decided by a forum poll immediately following the end date of the contest. A month should be enough time to capture footage and edit it.

    4. You may use older footage in your video as long as it was recorded/captured by yourself. Using footage from other peoples videos or official trailers is not permitted.

    5. You may use any method to capture and edit video. This is not a contest to see who has the most expensive video editing equipment

    6. Give Credit where credit is due. Please include a credits list in your video citing any work that isn't your own. Songs, Cyan content, etc.

    The Following text should appear in all submitted videos:

    All Myst, Riven and D'ni images and text â© Cyan, Inc. All URU images â© Cyan Worlds, Inc. Myst, Riven and D'ni are trademarks or registered trademarks of Cyan, Inc. URU is a trademark of Cyan Worlds, Inc. All rights reserved.


    7. Please use common file formats for your videos (*.avi, *.wmv, etc) Divx is ok but any wierd formats that people may not have may cause your video to be skipped by people who don't want to have to search for the right codec.

    8. Voting / Judging will be based on the overall quality of the video. Ex. How well the music flows with the video, variety of footage, editing technique (not who can use the most transitions in a 4 minute time period, etc. There will be no separate categories for UU/ Alcugs/ etc. Everything goes! well URU related anyways

    9. Hacks of any kind are not permitted. If you are a shard admin please do not use your adminKI in the making of your film. UserKI (or UserKI equivilent for admins) commands only in your video. Also, single player hacks (this includes flymode) will not be permitted.

    10. Please do not use the gallery for your own test videos. Keep those on your local drives until such time you are ready to submit your final video. Whatever is submitted in the Contest section of the gallery at the end of the contest is what will be used for voting.

    11. One entry per person. No team entries please.

    ----

    <span class="ev_code_GREEN">Prizes!</span>

    The Grand Prize is a signed copy of Myst V signed by Atrus himself, Rand Miller, when it becomes officially released. With Myst V being the last game in the Myst series, it's surely to become the ultimate Myst collectible!

    2nd place winner will recieve a new copy of URU: Complete Chronicles still in the pristine unopened box.

    The top 10 entries will receive a free DVD of their video creation ready to view on your home DVD player.
