Here's what I'm thinking and wanted to run it by the Family and get your input....Posted Image I want people to put
together a 3 or 4 minute high action video with music and Rev flying, you know with dive stops and fast
action team flying and just build a really cool FAST ACTION video and then have say 3 judges
of my choice decide who takes first, second, and third , then award say a custom B-Pro to the winner or
maybe even some cash but make it a real cool prize for the winners..... Then use some of the cuts in the
new up coming store demo DVD which is sent out world wide and yes you will get credit for the video
and your stuff will be seen world wide, plus it's been a while since we played and I gave away a anything.
So I'm perfectly clear it's got to be Revolution products not some homemade stuff and it's got to be attention getting footage and Revolution has your permission to use the clips..... So are you guys game
cause I know you all have some really cool video clips...... Ben


Editor's note, clarified guidelines:

  • All video submissions for this contest should be a maximum of 10 minutes in length, this makes it attainable for everyone, and it will assure "the best shots" are used.
  • All video submissions should also be uploaded to Vimeo or YouTube, otherwise the judges will not be able to review them (geographical limitations).
    (YouTube allows you to set a "private - viewable only with direct URL" option during upload)
  • MOV (quicktime) format is ideal, if at all possible, it's most versatile for commercial editing down the road.
  • Videos should be retained in their original, highest resolution and frame rate for Revolution use.
  • The full size version of your video should be accessible to Rev by data DVD or CD mailing.
  • Uploaded videos should be at a minimum resolution of 1280(x720 or whatever).
  • All submissions may be used by Rev, although the winners will receive prizes.
  • DEADLINE is December 10th, 2011.

Wow, it's like you read my mind - I needed a definitive reason to go out and buy a video camera (camera that takes video?) Posted Image

Ben, this sounds like an amazing idea! Could the deadline for the contest entries be the end of November, at the earliest?

Ben you have the best ideas. Sounds like fun along the lines of Virtual Freestyle. Maybe you should have the judging done by the family. Avoid controversy.


John

Maybe do an indoor next.

This sounds like a great idea!

One question: does it vahe to include team flying or can it be solo only? I would like to try something but i do not have a team around here.

When would be the deadline date to present our entries?

Cheers
Rob

I'm going to go out on a limb for Ben here in clarifying the following items:

1. All videos may be uploaded to YouTube for display here, with the full size video being accessible to Rev by CD mailing.

2. All submissions should be filmed in HD (high def = 1280 or better), since they'll be for DVD release.

3. All submissions may be used by Rev, although the winners will receive prizes.

If I'm off on any of this, I'm sure Ben will correct me.

I have a fun clip with peppy music and while it's a little on the short side, I'll throw it out there to get things started. ;)

John do you live in my head cause bro you always seem to finish the sentence for me..... So as John
said thats the game plan utube and a DVD for Revolution and you can make it team or solo or what
ever you want cause I just want to give some things away, plus I got some REALLY cool ideas for
sweetening the pot on this deal so don't believe this is just going to be for a kite....Posted Image I'm figuring
to have the Family vote and then go to the 3 guys who have done lots and who are a part of Revolution
history, 1. Lee Sedgwick 2. Alan Nagao 3. John B. (unless he submits a video then his vote goes to ME)....

1. All videos may be uploaded to YouTube for display here, with the full size video being accessible to Rev by CD mailing.

2. All submissions should be filmed in HD (high def = 1280 or better), since they'll be for DVD release.

3. All submissions may be used by Rev, although the winners will receive prizes.


Deadline is going to be Dec. 10ths so this way I can say it's your Christmas presentPosted ImagePosted Image

Nice, can't wait to see the submissions, happy to help judge. :)

Bring it on guys, show us what you got!

One more question Ben, just to clarify... Should the person flying in the video be the prize winner, or is this an *editing* contest too? My feeling is that it should to the flier. ;)

Oh, and I assume we'll favoring long clips (1-4 minutes in length) within the video, as opposed to lots of small edited clips, right?

Sounds like a great idea, the timing could have been more user friendly for this part of the country when the beaches and parks was still open, I even remember sunshine, now the usual weather is a mix of rain and snow and the beaches are covered with dead fish and driftwood.

Not too camera friendly time of the year for something as bright as a Revolution kite.

Thanks for all the claryficacions :)

May i suggest vimeo instead of youtube? Not only because it has better quality than yt in all aspects, including stereo sound vs mono sound, but also because it will save everyone the CD step as vimeo let you download the original uncompressed file. Just a suggestion of course.


Seeing the deadline in december it may let me round up something for this :)

I agree with the use of Vimeo. You Tube is still doing screwy things with Warner Music Group music. I just uploaded a video to YouTube and had the sound blocked. This could be a stumbling block. If you spend a lot time putting something together and then find out you run into the old problems fromWMG and Youtube. I don't think you have that problem with Vimeo. I have just uploaded the video there that was rejected for YouTube WMG problems.

This is Ben's show, but I don't think it much matters to him where it's posted, as long as he can get the raw footage afterward.

Especially, the music is probably irrelevant, since they'll need to use their own royalty-free or licensed music for the DVD anyway. ;)

Nice video John, I like the framing at 1:26-3:04 in the video... Kite is close enough to really see the logo, color, detail, etc... But not too close! :)

Nice background too.

Now if we could only get the SUN to do a 180 on command. :)

Hey !! Thank you very much Ben :) :) :)
And thank you to "Grande Anse" to have asked the question ;)

What a wonderful idea Ben, this video contest !!
I'm precisely working at this time on the next video for my website which will be used to promote the new versions HVTD (Half-VenTeD (or mid-vented)) and VTD (VenTeD) of the "Revopolo 1.5 printed" REVOLUTION, manufactured by "Los Hermanos Gonzalez".
I hope you will enjoy this new video.

See you soon on the Rev forum.
