Thanks for the kind words, Clayster. I learned so much from this competition. I have probably said that more than once, but I am not sure if I would have another animation finished if it was not for this event. Thanks for hosting it. I look forward to seeing what everyone enters. It will be fun to see the different takes on humor.

I'm a member of a bunch of different creative forums, and a common theme among creative types is the difficulty of getting inspired enough to continue making projects and honing production skills.

To that end, contests and challenges create a reason for people to create new content by a specific deadline. Some contests go so far as to require the completion of many projects in a short period of time, which forces artists to abandon the fear of releasing something that isn't perfect in every way. Such contests are about keeping up momentum, which leads to more familiarity with the creative process and the software being used in it.

It's like the photographer who takes a thousand pictures to get one award-winning shot, most artists of all kinds benefit from practice. They can always go back later and refine the ideas that "worked" as a rushed contest entry

All of my videos so far have been exercises along those line... and there are mistakes and flaws in all of them... but I see that as being a necessary part of keeping up my momentum in order to learn how all this stuff works.

I look forward to seeing all the videos that get submitted for the Clayster's contest

(there should be an exclamation point at the end of that last sentence, but my keyboard won't make it... must be toast crumbs...)

uh... that's probably true Clayster... I'm always drinking coffee when I'm on the computer, and I'm very clumsy
:-)


on a different topic:
there's a contest for song writers every February that requires participants to write a new song every day for the month... 28 songs in 28 days. Most song writers labor over their babies forever, never feeling like it's finished yet. This contest forces them to create the HABIT of creativity, and people swear that the contest helps to get over the fear of releasing their songs.

This doesn't mean that we should encourage people to submit inferior work by rushing them with deadlines... rather it means that we agree to differentiate between EXERCISES (which help us to learn in a friendly and less-critical environment) and FINISHED PRODUCTS (which might be submitted to a customer, and need to be free from obvious flaws)

It has been my observation that people who are afraid to take risks and learn from their mistakes tend to give up before they ever reach the degree of proficiency they are capable of achieving. For that reason, anything we can do to encourage one another to take creative risks on a regular basis is good for all of us. If we practice regularly, expertise will inevitably follow in time.

True that its why I stated if there needs to be more time, then I'll add it, I don't want everyone to rush, i'm a second chance person, and I also mention that the videos don't have to look like a blockbuster Hit, it's imagination and their way of telling stories that I'm looking for, and this contest is to see what kind of humor everyone has, me I love to laugh, Im always telling jokes everywhere I go, and hearing jokes from others even puts more of a smile on my face, and I'm just wondering who here on the forum or anyone can make me laugh the hardest!

Hi Clayster,

I have a movie ready for the competition, but where to upload it?
Do I upload the movie through my account so it ends up in the gallery for everyone to see, or do I have to upload the movie somewhere else only for you to see it?

Like to hear from you..

5. Videos must be submitted no later then midnight July 13th 2016, this should be enough time for everyone, and for submitting the videos, just send me a link to your video and me and my selected crew will judge each submission, no videos will be posted until a winner is declared.

Hopefully you can upload it via the site once the judging process has taken place.

I'm not really sure but I think on youtube you can set the video to privet, and then maybe you can give me the link.

I uploaded mine on YouTube as Unlisted. I chose that over Private, since it would not even show up in search results, and I wanted it to be only seen by Clayster and who he shares the link with.

I am enjoying the added threads to this topic about entering for the opportunity to go out of our comfort zones and just create something for the sake of creating something. I am happy to be finished and thinking about the next one, but my available time is shrinking fast, however animating is such a nice escape from the real world where laughing seems to be more difficult these days without offending someone. (Hopefully I did not offend someone by saying that....see what I mean?)

A word of warning to those uploading as unlisted: I think YouTube still publishes the video to your subscribers unless you untick the "notify subscribers" option in the advanced tab.

UPDATE: ok if I get up to Five or more entries then the contest will not need to be extended, in this case on the last day I need everyone who entered the contest to reset their videos on public view in youtube, this way i can post all of the winners here on the forum, this will prevent any violations with youtube.

thank You!

I will have to go look then change it to private. I do not have that many subscribers so should be safe for a while. Thanks for the information MDW12. Here is more information quoted from a YT Help search. It seems with private viewers need a Google account. After reading this I kept mine Unlisted for now.


Bern Rexer ~ Live Streaming Producer said:




YouTube live events are treated just like YouTube uploaded videos - regarding privacy.


Here is more info from the YouTube guides:
https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/157177?hl=en



And here is more info from another organization that uses YouTube privacy:
http://learn.maine.edu/faculty/2014/06/17/private-live-events-on-youtube/#privacy-settings



Private events can only be seen by those who you have invited - and who have a Google account. They only need a Google account - not specifically Gmail, YouTube or Google+


1) The URL to pass along would initially be the YouTube Watch page URL. This is the base page which anyone can drill down to. It follows the naming convention /watch?v='your-video-id'. You can also share this in a shortened URL by selecting 'Share' from that Watch page.


If you enable 'Embedding' then you can embed the video on a web page - and share the web page URL.


2) Correct - If anyone sends out a link for a private video - no one else can watch the video unless their email or G+ has been included in your event private list.


3) Unlisted is a non-searchable event which anyone can see. If no one knows about the link then it is considered secure by obscurity. Public is a searchable event.


:o)
best,
-B
