Myself, I think I would need at least 5 seconds so I could tell the back story and still show off some CGI effects too. :)

Sigh. My wife tells me quite often that I really need to read the instructions before I jump into things. Being a guy, of course, I know better. However, in my haste to get started on a contest entry, it appears I might have missed the part about entries being 640x480 and went to work on a 720x480 project. :oops:

2 questions:
1) Instead of starting over, can I assume that a 720x480 project 'letterboxed' to a 640x480 wmv file would be OK?
2) Do I have to tell my wife?

Embarassed in Fort Collins,

Dear Anonymous,
1. Using the standard NTSC project is correct, you will end up with a 640 x 480 WMV on export when it is all finished.

2. No, that is why I posted the response to Anonymous ;)

Dick (sorry, I mean anonymous), unfortunately, Mrs Twosheds was reading this thread over my shoulder. She says that she is going to tell your wife..... :-D

#-o Ron - how much would it cost me to have this post deleted?

Nah, actually it's OK. Tomorrow's our Anniversary and I'm still 3 stupid things short of my 50 stupid things per year limit. I could screw up twice more today and still be in good shape. :TU:

Beth it would be sad if you are not able to have an entry. Could I submit something in your name so I could increase my chances of winning....????

kind of like when the Kidz Bob kids sing hit songs and sell them on their own CD Kidz Bob 12. It could be the start of a K-Tell type of movie.

-Am I right in concluding that one can only submit ONE entry per category?

-Does one have to specify which category for each entry? Or they get 'guided' into a category?

-Who do I have to bribe to make sure I win (excepting People's Choice)

Hi Tony,
Good questions, sometimes I forget that not everyone has been around as long as I have and not everyone knows the prior years rules.

1. You can enter as many videos as you want to in as many categories as you want to.

2. Yes, you must decide which category your video belongs in. If you use tools other than Premiere Elements and Photoshop Elements that is an easy decision.

3. Sorry, can't help you there :lol:

OK Chuck, you make this very hard for me.

I have been in many awards contests, including the NY Film and TV Awards and I ALWAYS had to bribe someone to win. This is very unorthodox. As you understand, it is not who you know, it is who you bl**.

Anyway, regarding the category selection, if one was particularly happy with a project, I guess one could enter it into ALL categories, thereby not being excluded from one particular category because the epic wasn't entered into that category in the first place?

So, best to enter the epic into ALL prize categories, including 'Best in Show', or is that an automatic?

(I think I am just trying to give you a bad day) \:D/

I think I will now get back to my day job.... :razz:

Ok, I guess it still isn't clear :oops:

You can enter as many videos as you would like to enter.
You must pick the category and follow the rules of that category.

You cannot enter a single video in more than one category however ;)
Hope that helps make it a little more clear.
