Remix War 6

So let me tell you guys about Remix War 6. It will be the first round to include the PMV community and the artist community, and if possible, the fan fiction community, as well. Those of you who slice vids and scribble graphics and write sonnets; listen up, too.

Typically we reserve about a few weeks to a month for Remix Wars. This Remix War I think should take a little longer about 60-80 days. The purpose is to develop a unique video that gives a song that extra supplement of emotion or style or character. This is a chance to try your hand at making group efforts shine through.

Musicians: You will be the ones recruiting your team since you supply the music. You want to pick people that work well and efficiently and match your personality and won’t leave you high and dry. Keep in mind that your music needs to be regularly communicated to those involved so that they can provide feedback on how they can intertwine their side of the media into the video.

Artists: Your task is to supply the style. You aren’t guiding the actual video, but you are supplying the video maker with the adequate resources to do the job. This will require hours of work so please choose a manageable style that is efficient and elegant, if you can. Only you know how fast and well you can work. You must have strict self-control to avoid failing to deliver proper resources. Artists who draw ponies will need to develop what’s appropriate for the event. Graphic designers will mostly be providing supplemental resources to help the drawing artists in a pinch who need more polish.

PMVers: By now, you realize that your talents with pony music videos are in timing, cues, etc. Your task involves more of working with resources at hand and not so much making them (although making them is a plus, obviously). It is up to you to understand the direction that the music takes and develop a plan for how the video itself should be laid out. Since you put together the final product, you will be the most involved member of the group, to say the least. In order to succeed, you want to have good communication skills, a level head, an understanding that this is all for fun, and a backup plan for everything.

Writers: You guys will have to find out what you can do, should you be included. The most important thing to remember is that you are of the same role as the artists, you are supplying resources, not leading or guiding anything. Your words and your genius can help influence the end result and make it more magical.

Person who doesn’t do anything for the group and sets his status to “away” 95% of the time: Do not join the team.

Q: What if it doesn’t work out for my song?
A: Default to a picture, I suppose.

Q: They’re fighting / I don’t like what ____ did for the video.
A: There should never be any fighting. This is not a serious business thing. The project can be stressful enough without the negative attitude. Work as a team, think like a team, be on a team. It’s about being on the same page, being nice to each other, praising each other up, and being open-minded to what is provided to the group.

Q: I’ve never done this before.
A: Aim small, complement frequently, and try your best.

Q: I want to do everything myself, instead.
A: Good luck, friend.

Q: I wish I was chosen by ____.
A: That’s life. But this musician picked you. This musician picked you. This one thought you were special. Maybe you should think about that for a bit and maybe you’ll realize how high in regard that one thinks of you, yeah? Idk, just do your best anyway, seriously. It’ll pay off when you give it your all.

Q: I’m a shy musician.
A: The theme of this event is all about friendship, so make some new friends and try to jam this one out!

Side note: I will not attempt to resolve any conflicts.

OK this seems like an EXTREMELY difficult thing to put together.

BUT

I'm gonna see if I can make something cool happen for this, with the right amount of help.

Welp, looks like I need to go make friends with pmv-ers.
Will most likely go for a YTP-er instead.

I'm just curious, does this round still abide by normal Remix Wars rules (i.e. Remixes only of community music)?

I've made a few minor pmv's... also been trying to get a hang of Anime Studio Pro. I'm a pathetic nobody at the moment but here's a sample. :S http://camsy34.deviantart.com/art/Trans ... -323252569

Haven't really tried any proper animation but I'm willing to give it a shot. :D

Seems like a swell idea, but I have a few MAJOR questions.
1.) it's mainly a musicians' community, where do we find artists, pmvers, writers? I mean i know that there are dA, YT, and Fimfiction, but it's not exactly like i can just PM someone "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my skype profile, so call me maybe because mylittleremix is organizing a huge-ass event in which I am the star and only I will get the little love that you get from dividing a remix war into 150+ entries, do you want to participate?"

2.) Will there be enough pmvers/artists/writers for all of us?
3.) Will they want to collaborate with such a newb like me? (Many artists would care only if you're like... WoodenToaster-grade league)
4.) where are we going to host the synclisten? this adds up for like... 3x as much as previous rw (and people only will come to the first part)

If work permits, I'm all in. However, I have one question...

As far as music, is it the same rules as previous Remix Wars?

I'm not seeing anything on whether this is going to be a remix of an existing track as it appears to require a new track requirement. Nice to see the collaboration aspect is becoming the main focus in its place.

easy; just have circuit make the EqD guys put a "we need artists and PMVers to show lifesigns in some way" into the RW6 post when the time comes; or idk, but everyone asking everyone mean a lot of messages to receive, read and then for the pmvers and artists to nicely reject everyone but one guy who they either pick randomly or via some algorithm (like the first coming musician one).

basically, it all depends on how it's pulled off.

and no, shyness won't be the major problem; the aforementioned massive mailreading will.

or i'm wrong completely. ¯\(°_o)/¯

That might be a good idea; it may save everyone a lot of time scouring YouTube and DeviantArt.

Honestly the organizers will need to find a way to let the pmv and artist community know we need their help. They aren't going to see this on mlr and they aren't normally engaged en masse like this this. I hope with an EQD spotlight or through a different way that the organizers can reach out to them that this is conveyed in a way that THEY will be interested in as they'll be doing a chunk of the work for free and in many cases by a relatively unknown musician.

I'm in this boat as well. It's a nice idea... but for anyone who doesn't have the ability to get others to help them there's not going to be any guideline at all, other than pony I would think. In that case, what would really make this specific song different from any other one?

I dunno, it just seems kind of odd. Possible, but odd.

Yeah, just go by the old Remix War rules, please. Make sure that your involved partners know the drill. No porn (in fact avoid sauciness in general if you can, for real), and also gore while we're at it. It's not going to be any more adult-oriented via either avenue and most people aren't interested in it so please show refrain.

Not a great strategetic move imo, but if he will go with you, more power to you!

Makkon and I have greenlit this round to allow original music submissions.

Warbalist wrote:When is the deadline for this one?

Look for your teammates while we decide on a start and finish.

bartekko wrote:Seems like a swell idea, but I have a few MAJOR questions.
1.) it's mainly a musicians' community, where do we find artists, pmvers, writers?
dA, Tumblr, Youtube, Skype, etc. It is literally that dead simple to contact a movie maker and an artist and inform them of the event. It's not about you being the star, you're working in a team.
bartekko wrote:2.) Will there be enough pmvers/artists/writers for all of us?

Dude, of course there will be, don't even trip. Artists and Writers outnumber musicians greatly so unless you're like me and need a PMVer then you're all set.
bartekko wrote:3.) Will they want to collaborate with such a newb like me? (Many artists would care only if you're like... WoodenToaster-grade league)
I think that's a generalization. I just got Sofasandquills on my team recently and mmmandarinorange is considering joining us. So there's your counterexample. I hear DerpyTwizzle wants in on the game zone, you should go to him!
bartekko wrote:4.) where are we going to host the synclisten? this adds up for like... 3x as much as previous rw (and people only will come to the first part)
Actually, this remix war will see a lot less entries for the simple fact that music videos overall are difficult to complete.
