How to Enter:
1: Make a video.
2: Make it internet-friendly. Put your name in the filename of the video (along with whatever title you used).
3: Put it on the web somewhere. Maybe a free account with Angelfire or Geocities or whatever's out there. If you have really bad problems finding a home, email Tyler and he'll see what he can do.
4: E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and a link to the video.
All entries must be received by December 8, so get cracking.
All video on TDA can be used for snippets of your video (TOM walks, promo enders, etc.) Capturing your own video is a plus.
Toonami Music is available on Toonami.com
Some tools for converting QuickTime movies to other formats (if needed for your editing program) are available here.
If you're short for editing software, Avid Free DV is, well, free.
How the Winning will happen:
1: Videos received will be judged by our judging panel. They'll rate it based on its amount of Awesome.
2: The Top 5 will be chosen sometime after December 8th.
3: Winners will be announced sometime later. Much joy will be had by 5. Winners and runnerups will have their videos showcased on TDA. Much joy will be had by all.
4: Prizes will be mailed out to the winners.
To inspire the museless out there, here are some sample fan creations to look to:
Two entries per person maximum.
Besides, you can only win once, anyway.
Keep it action related.
No General Hospital submissions. Also, keep in mind that animated content is favored over live-action. This is Toonami you're emulating.
Nudity = Bad
Keep promos and intros down at or below the PG level. No "Tenchi's Harem Gone Wild" videos, etc.
You must feel comfortable giving your mailing address to a complete stranger if you win.
No mailbox, no DVD.
Make it look good. Make it viewable.
If your video resolution is too small, or compressed up the yin-yang, it'll be harder for us to judge its potential Awesome.
No turn on red.
Realize that your entry will be available to everybody at the end of the contest.
If you're ashamed to have your name next to a video you created, then don't enter it.
Find a place to put it and/or give it to us.
We can't judge a video we don't recieve, no matter how cool it is.
PLAGIARISM = BAD
No plagiarism will be tolerated. If caught, you will be disqualified, and we'll do anything in our power to ban you from all TDA/Infolink services forever.
THE CONTEST, ALL RULES, PRIZES, AND KNOWLEDGE OF ITS EXISTENCE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANYTIME WITHOUT WARNING OR REASON.
