Obsidian Video Clips Contest [Winners announced] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Video Clips Contest

We're looking for video clips of gameplay on Dark Seas. It's possible that we end up using the winning entry on our store page. It's also possible we use elements of multiple entries to create our store's trailer. So what we're looking for are several action packed bits of gameplay that you think highlight the best of Dark Seas and Puzzle Pirates.

Prizes:
Prizes will scale depending on participation. However at minimum the winner will pick between an Octo, Parrot, or Monkey in any standard color combination. No all black, all white, or limited edition colors. Other prizes will depend on participation, but will likely include things like a Forculus doll, renamed ships,or other trinkets.

Deadline:
11:59 pm game time on July 16th. Do not edit your entry after this point.

Entry Thread:
http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?p=2710030

Create a Video:

  • Deadline for the event is 11:59 pm game time on July 16th.
  • Please keep your video to less than 3 mins.
  • Please avoid adding music or a voice over.
  • The video clips must highlight the gameplay on Dark Seas. Think of what you like the most or what you'd want people to see of the game.
  • Video requirements: The trailer should be the highest resolution that you can use depending on the scene - up to 1920 x 1080 resolution, 30/29.97 or 60/59.94 fps, high bit rate (5,000+ Kbps). Some areas of the game create a lot of blank space when you go to a higher resolution screen. For those areas, you'll want to use a lower size screen, but still keep the fps up. For example, sea battle from the crows nest can use the whole client at a large size whereas if you look at the notice board or a puzzle in a higher resolution, there will be a ton of empty space. If in doubt, set your screen to 800x600 (32 bit).
  • Please note that our TOS applies to links you post. Please avoid any inappropriate language in your video.
  • Upload your video to a website which allows you to link to it, such as YouTube.
  • Upload your video to a place that allows for direct download of your video (such as Dropbox). Using one of the following file formats: .mov, .wmv, or .mp4


Enter your Video:

  • Post your entry to the Entry Thread (here ).
  • Include your pirate name and the ocean you'd like any prizes on.
  • Provide a link to watch you video (YouTube) along with a link to the direct download.
  • Pirates are welcome to submit more than one entry and may win more than one prize. Please use the same entry thread for ease of reading.
  • Please keep the entry thread for posting your entry only. All questions should be posted in this thread.
  • By entering you are consenting to allow us to use your video for advertisement or other promotional material. This includes making edits or changes to the your original video for said promotional material.


Entry Example:
 
Pirate: Cronus
Ocean: Obsidian
View Link: <<YouTubeLink>>
Download: <<Link to download the file>>
Familiar choice: Octo, Parrot, or Monkey (no all black/white or LE colors)

It sounds like you might be misunderstanding the contest. The video you're submitting is just raw gameplay footage, not an edited trailer. So you shouldn't need any edits, logos, voice-overs, music, or other art. By entering you are consenting to allow us to edit and use your video, or portions of your video, for promotional material.

If you're a professional video editor with experience in the game industry or other media, you'll be more interested in this:

Do the 3 minutes need to be continuous, or can we add jump cuts? If the intent is to say "no editing of any kind" then I think that needs to be clarified because some of the entries are definitely getting edited.

We aren't after a game trailer here, but rather videos showing gameplay so be sure not to edit your entry by way of superimposing text or adding to the raw footage. We will likely be forgiving of jump cuts, but remember you can enter multiple times so the preference would be for that rather than from moving from scene to scene to scene in one entry. Just remember, too, to keep each entry to 3 minutes or less!

We are after examples of game play specific to Obsidian so we may not be able to use that if the clip shows clearly it was generated on a different ocean. It is best to stick with Obsidian, but we do understand that there are restrictions there that may limit players obtaining all the video from that ocean. I'd recommend, given you can enter more than one video, that you keep video that is clearly generated on a different ocean separate.

I'm pretty sure they will announce it in the next few days.

You have to remember they have to pick and edit the best video clip(s) and given that most of the video submissions didn't come with audio they'd also have to add sound to their trailer (e.g ambient sound, puzzle sounds) if they should be picking them.

Its a long process and unless they have a product they like (that'll be displayed on Steam) I wouldn't be surprised if they postponed the announcement or even host a second contest for more suitable/additional material if they should be unhappy with the current result.

In my opinion the submission time span was rather short and it was really hard to find suitable content as Obsidian didn't offer too much KH/HS/SMH action during that time frame and a handful of people, bigger sea battles (f.e including a ship sinking, Flottilas) with a lot of people or even pirate'ish outfits were hard to come by since Obsidian was still fresh. Thats why I resorted to some puzzle content although I would've preferred to meet up with my crew - but they weren't available during that week.

Just stay tuned :)

I'm curious about any updates about this contest. I see that the obsidian trailer has been launched and created using clips from a few pirates myself included, and obviously clips from Scythera.

Is Scythera the only winner from this contest?

I understand that it can be frustrating for some people who entered and not getting a response/update back to what is happening.

However, I know that right now everyone is pretty busy with the whole Dark Seas launch on Steam and still have a lot to implement for it. I can understand because of that, they're probably postponing on an announcement for the results/handing out prizes til everything ingame is settled.

I can say though that I had compiled for them before a list of players whose clips I used in the trailer and when the time comes around everyone will be thanked for it! :)

Also, I wouldn't say either that I'm the 'winner' or anything, especially since the results haven't been officially announced yet and I know there's a few people who are more deserving of that than me! :P

I just presumed you were the winner from the announcement post and seeing as you have the familiar on Obsidian that you put in your entry post...

Sorry for the misunderstanding! I was more of the video editor that they were hiring in this thread; the monkey was something I had asked kindly for as a result of it!

I want to say though, your crafting clips were definitely helpful to use, so thank you for that Robyns! :)

Ahoy!

I'm sorry for the exceptionally long delay with results. Unfortunately I had quite a number of tasks that kept pulling my attention away. It wasn't fair to those of you who gave us a hand, and I apologize. To that end, all winners will also receive a Cronus egg. You're welcome to force it to wobble down the plank.

You've already noticed that your clips were used to help create an amazing trailer for the Dark Seas. This trailer has now been used on our Steam store page along with various ads on social media (FB, Twitter, etc) and a few other places. We were incredibly happy with it and it couldn't have been done without all of you who participated in this event.

Below are the results of the contest: (prizes are in the process of being delivered. Keep checking pockets)

1st: Robyns - Emerald
Red Monkey

2nd: Kickhead - Obsidian
Forculus doll

3rd: Jc - Obsidian
Greenbones egg

3rd: Keaze - Obsidian
Greenbones egg

A note on judging: Scythera was the creator of the trailer using these clips and additional ones she captured. While she's not a winner here for obvious reasons, I wanted to highlight her work and all of the extra clips she ended up capturing.

Prize delivery is ongoing. Keep checking your pockets.
