    The Fanime Commercial Contest! ((ENDED))

    Post by Evanimation on Fri Feb 28, 2014 2:10 am

    First topic message reminder :

    The Fanime Commercial Contest!!!!
    HAS OFFICIALLY ENDED! Congratulations Helenya!

    Remember those cute little commercials people used to do for their fanimes? What
    ever happened to those?

    Well, as the title might suggest, this is a contest to create them again! The
    premise is simple - make a short commercial for a fanime of yours, and the
    best ad wins!

    What does it win? Well, as of now first place shall get a $25 Amazon gift card.
    Amazon as in the website. Like, the one that sells stuff.
    Anyway, there are
    currently no other prizes, but if anyone wants to help pad it a little you can
    feel free to offer up art requests or something. If there are enough of those,
    then surely second and even third place may get something. In case anything gets
    added, I'll throw up a list:


    1st Place: $25(USD) Amazon.com gift card*

    2nd Place: Nothing yet. Maybe I'll draw you a trophy.

    3rd Place: Nothing yet. You might get one too, but it'll be a smaller, lamer trophy.

    ### Place: I mean, only one person is guaranteed to win something, but even if you
    don't win you still have an awesome commercial for your fanime, right? Very Happy


    Naturally, there must be rules. So, uh, here are those:

    All entries must be at least 15 seconds long, but no longer than 30 seconds.

    The fanime and all of the characters represented in the video must belong to you.

    Any music or sound effects must be royalty free, or otherwise belong to you.

    You can feature voices, obviously, but it's probably best you let the actors know
    that you might be earning money from this - even if it's not a whole lot.

    All entries must be new. You can use preexisting footage from your fanime, but you
    can't use a preexisting commercial or trailer. That said, it's better if the entire
    thing is newly made.

    You can enter as many times as you want, but only one of your entries can win.



    Now, I'll be the only judge, so it only seems fair I tell you what sorts of
    things I'll be looking for. I'll be looking at artistic style, animation quality,
    voice acting, plot, and the general 'feeling' of it, but more importantly I'll
    be looking at what effect it has on the viewer. Ultimately the goal is
    to make a video that makes the viewer want to watch the series, and that
    quality will be the primary basis for judging.


    The deadline shall be March 31, so all entries must be turned in before then.
    The winner(s?) will be announced by the 4th of April, and if this goes well I'll follow it up with another contest. Very Happy


    Good luck!

    Also, please post if you plan to enter.

    *I'll email the gift card code to the winner.

    Looking good! I shall add Handmade Girl to the list.


    Tori, yours looks good as well, but the music is going to be a problem. Sad As stated in the rules, any music or sound effects must be royalty free. You can still change the music before the deadline, but in its current state I can't accept it. Sorry.

    Just a quick update.

    Since I forgot to mention time zones when I stated the deadline, I'm going to keep this open until midnight Pacific time, or about three and a half hours from this exact moment. I was originally going by Eastern time, but on the off chance that any last minute entries were counting on another few hours it's only right that I extend it. I don't honestly expect any new entrees between now and then, but just in case...

    And the winner is...

    Helenya, with Handmade Girl



    Melty's Space Ranger Rinel made second place, and Torianimemaker's Eirian no ai was chosen for third.

    I had a really hard time choosing a winner, but alas I decided upon Handmade Girl. I loved all of the
    entries, but when it came down to it, the trailer for Handmade Girl got in my head the most. I think
    that, as a commercial, it is the most effective at advertising the project.

    Once again, congratulations to Helenya (or just Helena) for first place! I shall contact you.
    Unfortunately prize pool participation wasn't a thing that happened, so second and third get, uh...
    these:


    While making the decision I took notes on each entry. Those can be seen here:

    Spoiler:
    I Want to be Alone

    + Nicely animated all the way through.
    + Gives a funny look into the character's personality.
    - Seems more like a short than a commercial.
    - Doesn't say much about the point of the show.
    - There's one point where the sound effects don't sync.


    Tumblr Fanime

    + Plenty of animation; very finished look.
    + Good use of humor
    - Flash scenes are a little too fast to make out.
    - Actual point of show kind of hard to figure out.
    - Lots of stock images.


    ODD 4

    + Very energetic and fun look into the show.
    - No new footage.
    - Text cards are a bit too fast.
    - Copyrighted music? :/


    Space Ranger Rinel

    + Cute and funny.
    + Gives a basic idea of the show, and introduces the main character.
    + Solid voice acting.
    - Doesn't show much.
    - Lacks any real animation.
    - Somewhat awkward cuts between shots.


    Handmade Girl

    + Makes the veiwer figure out the meaning on their own without blatantly saying it.
    + Thought provoking.
    + Hints via sound that it may not be as innocent as the art looks.
    - Doesn't feature much animation.
    - Shots don't have any immediately discernible relation to each other.


    Eirian no ai

    + Almost fully animated in detail.
    + Doesn't give away much, but has a sense of mystery.
    + Dark and atmospheric music is satisfyingly creepy.
    - Awkward cuts between scenes.
    - Strange inconsistencies in frame colors.
    - Scenes are hinted at being related, but aren't visually tied together.


    The Last Heir

    + Explains the concept outright.
    + Detailed art and animation.
    + Nice balance between stills and animated shots.
    - The music is much bigger than the trailer.
    - The sequence of scenes is confusing.
    - The scale hinted at by the map and text cards isn't well represented.

    I can provide a more detailed explanation of the notes if anyone's interested, but those are the main things I based my decision off of.

    I'd like to thank everyone for participating, and I hope you all had fun! Now I can't wait to see all of these in circulation.  Very Happy
