Anime Category


This contest involves creating a music video for any track from Final Fantasy VII: Voices of the Lifestream using footage from any anime. However, to distinguish from the FF7 category, please do not utilize footage from Advent Children or Last Order.

Original Category


This contest involves creating a music video for any track from Final Fantasy VII: Voices of the Lifestream using only footage that you yourself create. It can be live-action, 2D or 3D animation, rendered from Flash, etc., but it needs to be your own creation, and cannot incorporate substantial outside sources.

Rules
  1. The deadline for all entries is December 14th, 2007.
  2. All submissions are made under the terms of the OverClocked ReMix Content Policy, available at http://www.ocremix.org/info/Content_Policy. Please read it before submitting.
  3. You may only enter one submission for each category.
  4. In the case of submissions that involved collaboration, you must designate a single point of contact for the prizes and coordinate amongst yourselves who receives what.
  5. Only one song from Voices of the Lifestream should be used per video, no other music should be present, and the video should not exceed the length of the song selected.
  6. Content should generally be "PG-13", avoiding nudity, profanity, or extreme violence.
  7. Video should be in HQ AVI DivX, XvID, H264, or MPEG2 formats, at a resolution of 720x480, with a 23.97 or 24 fps (progressive) or 29.97 fps (interlaced) framerate, with uncompressed 44.1khz stereo audio. Please utilize the WAV versions of VotL tracks (available via bittorent at http://bt.ocremix.org), not the MP3s, when creating your music video(s).
  8. For the FFVII and anime categories, please try to follow common Anime Music Video contest guidelines, available on the websites of most major anime conventions. We want submissions in these categories to be submitted to as many different AMV contests as possible.
  9. Do not utilize low-quality footage or footage with subtitles burned-in.
  10. Do not include credits, bumpers, trailers, or other material in your video, only the actual submission content.
  11. You may choose to post your video(s) on YouTube, etc., before/after submission, so long as the OverClocked ReMix Content Policy is followed.
Submitting

Include the name you want the video(s) credited to, your contact information (website, email), the name of your video(s), all sources (anime, games, movies, etc.) utilized in your video(s), and any additional information you feel is relevant with your submission, whether via email or physical mail.

Email (preferred):


Send an email titled "FF7 Music Video Competition Entry" with a link to your video(s) to submissions@ocremix.org. Do NOT attempt to attach the video itself, or any form of preview. Make sure that the link still functions on Dec. 14th and for as many days after as possible if you submit before the deadline.

OverClocked ReMix

Updated information and answers to questions regarding this competition will be available on an announcement thread at OverClocked ReMix (http://www.ocremix.org) - please check it often as prizes may be added or rules clarified. Winners will be announced before the end of the year, with the specific date dependent on the number of submissions received.

Good luck!

JJT's song really randomly inspired like a sort of rainy urban environment for me. Imagine like someone walking down the streets of Berkeley while it is drizzling.

Not something to create a submission for, but obviously a sign that these songs do inspire things that you could never imagine ever thinking of. I know you guys will make some awesome stuff. Take a chance and listen to every song on this. You will be amazed by what your imagination creates!

Good luck guys!

Ahahaha, I forgot about their YouTube word filter.

Anyway, I'm psyched. Can't wait to see what these guys put out!

If questions are asked elsewhere that are pertinent to everyone participating, I'll try to update this thread as well. For example:

Quote:
sweet, it's ocremix ;P

I just might do this, but we'll see.

Edit: if we find a track too long, can we shorten it [tastefully of course] for the video?
Yes, but we'd like videos to be at least two minutes, and only include one song from VotL (no medleys)... that being said, if you want to use one of the songs that runs a little long and cut it (tastefully, as you say) earlier, that's acceptable.
