Default Contest showcase video


OK, so, the contest is coming to a close, and it seems about time for me to start producing another showcase video. I have improved my skills since the last one, and I promise that the music will be better. People complained that last time, most of the smoothing I had done was a glorified fly through of the map. They suggested that I should focus on a certain landmark in each map. However, I have never seen your map before, never played on it enough. I would hate to make a showcase video only to have someone complain that I didnt show off a part of their map that they liked. So, I will let you choose what portion of the map you want to show off.

My music is exactly 4:00 minutes, so assuming about 25 people are entering, each person get a 10 second portion. You MUST post in this thread if you want your entry in the showcase video.

Here is how it will work; I will do an example for my entry:
Map Name: Artpass_grimtuesday
Map download: [insert link to bsp here]
Landmark 1: Around rocket
Area on map: Point C
Landmark 2: Satellite manufacturing
Area on map: Point B sidebuilding


You must post in this thread by 10 PM EST, Monday September 27 (2 days after the contest ends) if you want your map in the showcase video. I will randomize the order, so it really doesnt matter if you post now or later. I just wanted to throw this up to let people think about it, and if anyone is already done, they can feel free to post! Any questions?

I would suggest picking out a couple of songs (different length) to have on hand, in case you get far more people than expected.

Hmmm. Should be something by Pendulum

That's quite a nice TF2-ey tune though.

Of course it is. It's a 1940's swing tune.

First off drp can't feature any video that uses copyrighted music. Thats why jack had to redo his.

Second don't limit yourself so dam much. You are in no way tied to one song and its easy to weave in more then one so people are not limited to 10 seconds of screen time.

Lastly the hole "You MUST post in this thread if you want your entry in the showcase video." is dumb because it will end up cutting out the people who only read some threads and miss this one. Your better off putting them in the video anyway with what you think is right.

Thanks for the heads up.

Does anyone else know of any songs like that that are open source, or where Jack got his sign from?

I wont be limited, but im just trying to plan ahead. Il definatly be flexible depending oh how many of few people enter.

I should also change this to more of a "special request thread" so that, sure you will be in the video, but you might not be where or what you want to.
