New Producer Video Contest
 
Here's a chance for all you amazing "backyard" video producers to make that work pay off for you. We're teaming up with WakeboardNebraska to bring you the New Producer Video Contest.

Come up with the best video entry and you could find yourself on a plane to Orlando, Florida to shoot some of the top pros with Ronnie Romero. On top of that, you'll get a meet and greet with the legendary Scott Byerly courtesty of Byerly Boards.

Byerly Boards will also be setting up the winner with a board and binding package. Five runners-up will also be the happy recipients of gear from Byerly Boards.

This here "sticky" thread will be up for the entire duration of the contest so that we can post the video entries here and discuss them with the community.

Click here to check out all the details of the New Producer Video Contest

this is awesome. cant wait to see who wins. there are so many really amazing "backyard" video producers out there

wakeboardern1 04-15-2010 1:31 PM

I was pretty stoked on this when I read about it in that thread about online videos. This is going to be awesome.

wakereviews 04-15-2010 5:58 PM

Nice, i'll be checking this thread often!

Mikelish540 04-16-2010 6:15 AM

Only problem is that you have to have a nice HD cam... :/

shredsickgnar 04-16-2010 7:47 PM

I'm glad this contest came about. I'm sure it will showcase some real talent.

austindodson 04-18-2010 9:46 PM

How long can the video be?

wakeworld 04-19-2010 11:24 AM

All the details can be found by following the link above...

norcalbordr 04-19-2010 1:14 PM

Can Norbi actually be considered backyard anymore? His stuff is the sickest I've seen in the past year but he's gotten a lot of hype nationally so he may be banned from this contest since came on scene. This is a sweet idea either way.

waterdork88 04-19-2010 1:34 PM

"Length isn't important as long as it captures the interest of the judges, but we're guessing that their attention will probably run out at about 3-5 minutes"

Though I couldn't find an answer to whether the entry can be a teaser.

ghettofab 04-19-2010 3:13 PM

seems like you could enter anything and everything. your entry is how you perceive wakeboarding and how you portray it through your filming and editing. Teasers would fit into a 3-5minute length so why not?

kyle_L 04-20-2010 8:40 AM

Norbi definitely should be in the contest. Yeah he has built a name for himself in the wake community with his vids but he is still an up and comer and not doing this professionally yet. I'm sure with a contest like this, he will have some competition.

ghettofab 04-20-2010 6:01 PM

can i enter :)

wakeworld 04-20-2010 7:04 PM

Everyone who hasn't done a major DVD release can enter.

ghettofab 04-20-2010 8:28 PM

yes!

rorowake 04-22-2010 12:44 AM

I can't wait to see what everybody puts together!!!

stang_killa_ss 04-22-2010 8:43 AM

been talking with some folks in mississippi, looks like im gonna be giving this a go. not much chance of winning, but were gonna give it hell trying.

waketowake 05-09-2010 9:34 PM

All though Norbi should be able to enter, I definitely wouldn't say he is a "backyarder" with a 7g camera... not hateing Norbi i love your stuff, and all of your vids get me pumped to go board.

rorowake 05-10-2010 11:25 AM

I will be joining Kyle Alberts on a Stokemeter show tonight (Monday 5-10-10) at 8 PM Central, if anyone has any questions about the contest- please log on to Stokemeter and hit me up!!! See you then.

flydenrict 05-10-2010 11:28 PM

Dude that means I only have 2 months to film and edit.... Anyway to push that back a little for the minnesota summer?

rorowake 05-11-2010 8:42 AM

That should give you more than enough time... Nebraska's summers are the same, man!!! Good luck.

wakeboardern1 05-19-2010 7:25 PM

Hey, so the music clearance contract isn't working for me. I have a band I'm trying to get that to, but can't seem to download it or something. Can you take a look at it? It might just be a fluke on my computer, but if not, it's better to have it pointed out now than later when it might be hectic.

rorowake 05-19-2010 9:59 PM

it works on the wakeboardnebraska.com site...

http://www.wakeboardnebraska.com/videocontest/index.htm

good luck!

wakeworld 05-20-2010 9:38 AM

Thanks for the heads up. It was working at the bottom, but one of the links in the middle wasn't working. It's good to go now!

wakeworld 07-14-2010 7:16 PM

We've just upped the ante on this contest. Thanks to Greg Nelson and Scott Byerly over at Byerly Boards, the grand prize winner will now be shooting video of Scott Byerly as a part of the prize package!!! We're so stoked and thankful to be able to bring this to you. I just can't wait until it goes down. I'm going to be the annoying guy on the boat that really has no reason for being there, but shows up anyway!!

scbrips 07-15-2010 2:20 PM

Dude that's awesome! Tell Nelson to come too!

I soooo wish I would win this contest!

wakeworld 07-15-2010 3:57 PM

Did you or are you going to enter?? Who's going to get in on this?

wakeboardgeezer 07-16-2010 2:36 PM

This sounds like a hoot!
I'm thinking "The Wakeboard Geezer" needs to jump in here.
It may at least make somebody giggle and that can't be all bad.
regards,
The Geeze

wakeworld 07-22-2010 11:45 AM

So nobody on the discussion board in entering this contest?? Come on, let's see some entries!!

liquidforcefan 07-22-2010 12:23 PM

I'm still working on mine, gonna send it in on the last day of August.

wakeworld 07-22-2010 12:34 PM

You might want to send it in on the last day of July since the contest ends on August 1!! :)

liquidforcefan 07-22-2010 2:42 PM

whoops, my bad, that's what I meant.

wakeboardern1 07-28-2010 11:23 AM

Awesome. almost had my edit finished, and between last night and this morning, my external hard drive with all of my footage on it has decided to kick the bucket. This is cooooool. I had around 30 gigs of filming for this one contest, and now nothin, hahaha. Now I've got to try to get it working again, but if not, I guess so much for the contest. If it doesn't start working again, I may send you the opening thing I had for the video for ****s and giggles, hahahaha.

rorowake 07-28-2010 8:25 PM

lesson #1= backup, backup, backup

dwday 07-29-2010 9:11 AM

That blows. Try sticking your hard drive in the fridge for a while. I've seriously heard that this can give you a couple minutes to run it and move the files somewhere, depending on what was wrong with it. IDK sounded crazy to me but it was in some tech article. Maybe it was for an immediate fix deal??

http://geeksaresexy.blogspot.com/200...over-data.html

wakeboardern1 07-29-2010 12:27 PM

So it turns out that it was a power problem with the base of the external. My friend had the hookups and we were able to save all of my footy. Talk about super lucky. I tore the entire outer case apart to figure out the problem, and when I saw that a connection on the external's power supply was broken, we were able to plug it in to a tower and voila.

And backing up 150 total gigs of footage gets pretty heavy, haha, especially when you're too broke to really afford another big harddrive because you needed a new wakeboard, haha. My computer is completely full, and I've already deleted a bunch of stuff off of my external that is now an internal just to have the space for this footy. But this does give me a real justification to get the desktop that I've been looking at building and putting two 1 terabyte hard drives in it.

But everything's back on track.

Lucky? Obscenely. Need more memory for backups? Yes.

that ryan taylor video was my favorite so far. the tuti aye video was pretty sick as well

Going off of production alone Ryan Taylor's killed it. Tuti- aye was sick also.

wakeworld 08-02-2010 1:24 PM

Because some folks had some issues with getting music clearance done in time, especially since our link to the paperwork wasn't working originally, we're going to extend this contest for two more weeks and the new end date will be 8/15/10. For those that rushed to get their work done before the 8/1 deadline and feel like you could make a few tweaks to improve it, you're more than welcome to re-submit a modified version of your entry before the 8/15 deadline.

Thanks to everybody that participated so far and to those that will get their entries in in the next two weeks!!

chuckbutta 08-02-2010 2:38 PM

sweet !! i could use more time no doubt !

JohnMat 08-02-2010 2:54 PM

Not trying to be mean to those who were not able to get the music release in time, But this is not cool. The whole point of the contest was to find new professional producers. I would say the 2 most difficult things were getting a Music Release and meeting a deadline and all of the above videos made that happen. Extending the contest is not fair to anyone who met ALL the requirments of this contest. Reguardless of the fact all the videos up to this point can be refined, it still gives an advantage to anyone who has not released there video and has gotten a look at what everyone else has posted up to this point. I say let the late ones enter and show off there films on this sticky post, but they are not elligible for the prizes since some of the requirments were not met.

dakid 08-02-2010 3:06 PM

i concur.

wakeboardern1 08-02-2010 4:08 PM

I'm inclined to agree with John and Joe, but since the announcement has been made already, it can't really be taken back. I know I had no chance of winning the grand prize, but still, it's a little painful to have people be able to come in afterward and submit a video after seeing what we have done. Since this is happening, it may even be necessary for the crowd favorites (Ryan and Tuti) to tweak their videos as well, since it's likely that people will be working on besting them.

But just because I agree with the above two people, does not mean that I won't be taking this time to modify my video. There's a lot of stuff that I wanted to do, but was unable to between conflicting work schedules, weather problems and conflicts with another project I'm doing a bunch of filming for, so I plan on using this as a chance to get as much of that done as I can physically force the riders in my video to do.

Realistically I'm not sure if there's a fair way for this to really go down. and by tweaking it/modifying it, I'm wondering to what scale we're allowed to, since this deadline extension could effectively show people exactly what they have to do better than, so it would mean the possible complete rehashing of our videos so that people won't know exactly what they're up against anymore. Is this allowed? Because I plan on using the same song and possibly adding in an intro with another song that I was originally going to do, but cut because I wanted to try to stick it all in the one song, especially now that I know that everyone is in love with these videos with the intros and stuff that are seperate from the actual riding riding video.

At the same time however, I feel almost like it would be cheap and virtually like I was cheating since I know exactly what people like now, what the best two videos that I'm up against are and what I need to do to TRY to surpass them.

I'M SO CONFUSED RIGHT NOW!!!!!!! I don't like the feeling that re-editing my video would be cheating, but I also don't like the idea that others now have the opportunity to take our videos and use them as a benchmark for what they have to do better than. Which feeling that way makes me want to redo a large large large portion of my video... I don't know about the others but I've put a ton of time filming into this video (there are a lot of hours of filming behind my video)

So I guess the real question for those of us who have already entered, is how much modifying are we allowed to do to our video?

JohnMat 08-02-2010 5:04 PM

The point is this was said in the description.
Music you say? That's easy, right? Not so fast. Anybody can go grab the latest MGMT song and stick it in their project, but that's not what we are looking for. In fact, we want you to find new music to showcase in your edit. This is probably the hardest part of ANY action sports production, clearing music. NO MAINSTREAM OR MAJOR LABEL MUSIC unless you have obtained rights to distribute it on the web. There are a number of bands out there that want their music to be heard and will offer their songs to you for a simple credit at the end. FIND THEM!

The fair thing is to not let the new entrys be eligible. Because they did not meet this requirement. "the hardest part of ANY sports production"

gina_h 08-02-2010 5:26 PM

I also agree with John and Joe. PJ Halloran and Anthony Sawyers entries were even posted several days before the other postings. Nice job to everyone who took the effort to make these!
Lots of great riding shots and interesting editing.

wakeworld 08-02-2010 6:34 PM

Alright, you guys make a good point. Meeting a deadline is all part of making a video, so I'm going to reverse myself and say the contest is over. Sorry for the scare but we were just thinking a few more entries would help, but that went over like a lead zeppelin!! :) Sorry for the pump fake. Let the judging begin.

Worddd. Stress levels down. Hahaha. If you could delete my post above as well as this one Dave, that would be awesome.

And re-Sticky this thread too! It keeps falling down and so we have to hunt for it!

Oh, and a few more entries would have probably been cool, but like everyone was saying, we'd all have to re-edit our videos to make sure that people weren't given a huge advantage over all of us...

liquidforcefan 08-02-2010 6:53 PM

Awesome, thanks for that I was freaking out.

rorowake 08-02-2010 7:57 PM

All entries can be seen together at http://www.wakeboardnebraska.com/videocontest/

ghettofab 08-02-2010 8:10 PM

do you really think 2 more weeks would made someone come out of the wood works and one up you?

wakeboardern1 08-02-2010 8:18 PM

Oh yeah. There are plenty of good producers on here that likely didn't pull things together in time. Once you know what you have to beat, it can be done. If I was given 2 more weeks, I could take what I saw here now and put together something much more, let's say, creative. Especially since I've now seen what the general public prefers for the videos.

wakeworld 08-02-2010 8:30 PM

Ok, now that that's over with, let's hear what you think about the entries!!

wakeboardern1 08-02-2010 10:56 PM

Well, there's Ryan Taylor's, which was absolute artwork. We all know what's good about it.

There's Tuti's, which was an epic opening. Not really much else to say, awesome light and cool sub-plot. Reminds me a little of 12 Honkeys, just a little more serious.

Loved the heli shots in Merret's video. A little shaky, but different from everything that everyone else did. It gave it a bigger budget feel.

The shaky cam and twisted shots in PJ's video drove me crazy, sorry dude. You were going for a creative effect with the twisting and zooming of shots, but it just made it more unsteady in it's appearance.

I really dug the opening to Chris Bradley's video. That was sick. I showed these all to a friend and he agrees with me that the high up shots with the go-pro as you drove past and stuff were pretty cool.

Overall the idea of time lapses seemed to be really popular with everyone...

That's all I can really think of now. I had criticism of my video typed up, but I don't see the point, haha. I'll let others say that stuff so I don't have to, bahahaha.

I was wondering did anyone else have any problems with getting the music? My first one was a little more popular band and they wanted either 7,000 or 1,000 I couldnt tell from the handwriting . The whole time they were acting like no problem at all we will get that signed for you just send it in lol. This contest is really fun to see all the differant videos I really think WakeWorld should make a channel on Vimeo that everyone can use and post videos like these on.

bradis86 08-03-2010 11:53 AM

Actually I just searched Vimeo under channels and I found a couple WakeWorld ones not sure if they are from this Forum though.

ghettofab 08-03-2010 4:42 PM

wakeboardern1 08-03-2010 5:37 PM

Joe,

YOU GOT ME! Hahahahaha. Yeahh, I've been playing around with the tutorials on that site for a while and saw that one and was like, hmmmmmm.... Not was I was initially going to put in the video, but it works. And I agree with everything you said about my video. Hahaha. I wish it just wasn't so meh.

Chris,

Luckily, I have good relations with the band I used, since they let me use a song of theirs in Gauntlet a couple of years ago, and so they were more than willing to let me use a new song from their new album since I essentially promoted them. Plus, they decided not to sign with a label, and so there wasn't a fee.

DirtyCracker,

I had a response to you, but I decided it wasn't worth it. I'll just talk to you again about that in two weeks when I finish my Robby McFarland Summer 2010 Edit.

Oh, and I know my video was an uncreative by the books wake vid. I had very little time to actually film the riders, and the choices came down to play it safe and try to get as much footy as possible/try for super specific shots and risk not having enough footage to fill the song without alot of slow-mo.

dakid 08-03-2010 5:47 PM

there's no rule that says you have to use the whole song. better to have 2 minutes of artistry than 5 minutes of standard shots.

wakeboardern1 08-03-2010 6:11 PM

yeahhh. I don't usually think things through completely when I do them though. However, your advice seems to work wonders for me, because every time you say something about my videos I wind up taking it to heart and working on it a lot. I remember some of the critiques you gave some videos I made a while ago, and they've stuck there. Which is probably the best thing that will come out of this contest, is the critiques from guys like you. Thank you mr joe umali for your bluntness. It is greatly appreciated. Hahaha.

bradis86 08-03-2010 6:51 PM

Lol You may want to put aaaarrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhh next to "nice opening time-lapse" because that also was in reverse.

ghettofab 08-03-2010 7:22 PM

please nick talk to me in two weeks and we will compare ryan taylors to yours once again.
