Hey everyone!!!

Cast your vote for you favorite videos:

And if you haven't seen all the video entries yet, click here:

This year the competition is a little tougher. We received more entries than ever before and I'll be honest, we were a little 'harder' with judging this time around.

 

With the addition of the Professional Amateur Videographer forum there have been a LOT of great videos posted and we felt that ONLY the 'cream of the crop' deserved to be in the final running.

 

Out of nearly 100 videos we narrowed it down to 25 finalists. Starting today we will be posting 5 videos a week for the next 5 weeks. And for the first time ever you can now STREAM the contest entries!

 

So what are you waiting for? Go watch the videos!!! And then come back here to discuss them!

Just curious but whats the reasoning for sending up to 3 videos...so the person can have a greater chance of getting a submission in or will you guys ever have more than one submission per person in the final run down?

Still sticking with the three max, eh? Well, I have three done, but I've been planning on another one, so if that's the case, I'll have to kick one out, and it'll be interesting figuring out which one should be cut.

 

April 1st... that'll come up sooner than later! Hopefully, I can get this other one done!

You are more than welcome to submit videos that have been or will be on other sites. In fact, it's also a good way to help promote a video or a site if you want.

 

One of the goals for the contest has always been to create a way for people to show off and share their work, even if it's featured on other sites.

 

It's more about sharing than it is about winning, but winning is a fun part of it too!

Haha, this should be good. I love seeing other TPR members work. The reasons I don't do this are:

1. I don't have a camera

2. I don't have experience with editing

3. I don't have experience with shooting footage

I know you'll all be devastated to read this , but I will not be submitting a entry this year. I know in the past my videos did rather well, but I haven't had the desire to film at any of the local parks out here recently, and the other footage I have is a few years old now, but I would like to help judge the entries if you'd like some extra help Robb

So who's ready for stupid question?!?! Okay, is it alright if I submit all my videos on a DV tape that already has some footage on it, and if I set the tape to the section where my videos start, would that be okay? I mean, it'll be at the end of the tape where nothing would be there to mess it up or anything, but I dont really want to buy a brand new tape and just send it to you guys (Now I know how you get all your mini DV tapes!). If not, Ill dig deep and buy a tape for the contest, just though I should ask...

^ Yes that will be fine.

 

I am going to let everyone in on a little secret for buying Mini DV tapes:

http://www.tapestockonline.com/pan60minmin.html

 

I buy all of ours from this place and I usually buy 50 at a time so I never pay more than about $2.50 per tape.

 

It just kills me to see the same damn tapes at Best Buy for $7 each.
