Righty then,

Following previous discussions on advertising on TV etc etc, i felt this competition was in order.

Your challenge is, should you choose to accept it, to design, produce and post a daoc advert suitable for showing on TV.

It should include(probably) game footage, pretty effects, nice music(not rap or shouty trash), and probably some daoc logo/goa logo somewhere in it.

It should not have been made or posted before on the forums before, or shown to people before.
It should be primarily your own work (i guess its probably ok to poach a little footage from someone elses old RvR vid if it looks cool etc), however group/guild entrys will be accomodated.

Suggestions;

Footage showing peoples UI would probably not be best, as they are likley to be confusing for people who've never seen the game before.

A voice over might be suitable although by no means necessary.

General footage/locations/things that make me go "oo cool" when watching are likley to earn bonus points, however it must be a general cool, not a "cool if you've played daoc for the last 3 years obsessivley" cool ;)

You may use any video editing stuff etc in an effort to produce the best done, well crafted, professional advert/video. As a suggestion, the WoW promotion video on their website is a good example of a high scoring entry (although I am aware that probably all players wont have access to the crazy animation stuff they have in it ^^)

Prizes may possibly follow for high scoring entrys, and theres always the chance goa might use your entry*!!!

Go to it people!

Closing date is the 1st of JUNE 2005.
Replys must be posted in this thread with active/working links.
If you cant host your video as anything other than a torrent, i'll need a copy DCC'ed to me or sent over msn or something as when I go back to uni I cant use torrents.

Good Luck!

Tilda

I wont be entering and tbh I really cba to go look up which person plays for whichever realm i happen to be on at the time. So i'd say its pretty fair.

Its not just my viewing pleasure, why not do it for fun etc? other people will be viewing them too.
I'll try to get a decent prize, however, to rephrase your statement, I dont really wanna say "oo i'll get a gfx card" if all that happens is I get 2 -3 shitty entrys. ;)
I cant say what the prize will be yet, however i'll do my best with it.

Moik may enter, however you should too, theres no gaurentee that his will be better than yours.

It should be around the length of a TV ad, so I guess (although am not certain) around 20 seconds? Could be up to 30 seconds I guess, but im not overly concerned if you go over or under by 5 seconds. However remeber its an advert, not a trailer etc, so I dont wanna be sitting around for ages :p

Hrm, i'll talk to someone about getting ftp accounts, but I cant promise anything, isnt there some site that hosts films?(mmofils or rpgfims or something?)

VF, I'll talk to someone from goa on monday, I cant promise anything but i'll do my best to make it worth your while.

Im not 100% sure tbh, I'll leave it down to judgement I think, but nothing too small, but then nothing so high that it takes weeks to download ;)
Im sorry I cant be more help with that, but if you have a suggested resolution feel free to suggest and use it :)

Hmm, instead of Videos.. could we submit posters/billboards/whatever-you-call-them? We could make a seperate competition for this, perhaps, for people who can't make videos, like myself ;)

If so, I better start downloading PSP :)

yeah because it will be really embarrassing when you spell "GOA" wrong
Ok,

hosting is here; http://www.rpgfilms.net/nuke/index.php

Gunz, if your not entering, dont bother posting.
Vinter, I'd have thought 1 month would be plenty long enough, but i'm open to suggestions if you think the time limit should be extended.

I was thinking about entering this. However I'm currently making a video of my scout (going to be an RvR video rather than an intro to the game), and that along with the time limit means that I wont have the time to make another.

I'm looking forward to seeing who wins though, and what the prize is :)
