All films/trailers must be 1 minute mininum and 4 minutes max.
No film can have any type of cursing or innapropriate scenes.
The theme is anything you want.
Films can be made with any type of animation/characters (legos, people, action figures, ect...)
Films MUST have a good storyline/plot to have a better chance at winning.
Because this is a special effects contest, there must be atleast 6 special effects (muzzle flashes, explosions, force fields, ect...).
Any film exceeding the maximum time limit will be laughed at and promptly disqualified.
Try to keep the file size small.
If you were to add a blooper reel to your movie, please make it less that 10 megabytes and attach it to your movie. You might just get some bonus points for some goofs!
The first day I will take completed films is October 28, and the deadline for contest entries will be November 10. If anything needs to be changed with the dates I will change it later. This gives you 1 month, and 13 days to make you entry. If I left something out (which I might have) then I will come back later and fix it.
There are alot of judges! There is me, two of my friends, and everyone who watches the movies. The main vote will be the audience though. Each member of the audience (the people who aren't entering the contset) will watch each film until their eyes are bloodshot. No, I'm just kidding. But they will have to watch each movie. Then they will vote on which movie they though had the bets storyline, and which movie has the best special effects. Then my two friends and I will add up all the votes and average them. And you know how it goes from here.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS CONTEST PLEASE ASK THEM HERE..
i am also in the middle of making a Faq of everything here. I may add more to the lsit of Rules, but for now they are like this. Tell me what you think! Bye!
EDIT: There is a 4 minute maximum time limit so that everyone can watch the movie if they are on T4 modem thing or a 14k modem. IF it were any higher and someone had a slow moden, it would take forever to downlaod. So that is why there is a time limit.
