Annnnnnnnd it begins, giving less than two months to get this on. Ouch. Thankfully, I did take a head start. Unthankfully, my job's busiest season is November/December *works in transportation* so, I won't have much of a real break until January. BOTH my videos are already laid out, so not too much heres and theres to go. I should be set.

I tried something out of my comfort zone this year and I've come to two conclusions:

1. I'm proud of what I've accomplished.
2. I HATE lip syncing with a fiery passion.

Romance video is a go, mostly finished. I contemplated doing comedy but I like to stick with what I'm good at. I might attempt a second video if I have time.

Well, after the accident I had with my last laptop, I caught back up on my romance video pretty fast surprisingly. Actually at the point I have it better, and further along than before.

My Fun-Upbeat is almost unsave-able for this year though. Still hoping, but pushing to finalize my romance first so I know I have a submission this year.

My thoughts exactly. Adam hasn't even shown face in weeks, and we are about a week until the deadline.

He's pretty busy with stuff. The rest of us, on the other hand, used to have banter quite frequently here. I'm not seeing that any more.

I made two AMVs this year but because I entered some of the information incomplete when submitting it for my first AMV I resent the information (though I only uploaded that video once, after I sent in the good info). I'm currently uploading my second AMV now. Hopefully the accidental double-info submission doesn't prevent both of my uploads from being considered.

We see a bunch of accidental double submissions every year, since uploads can fail and we get only a partial file. You shouldn't have a problem, and Adam will contact you if there's an issue.

Do we know yet if there will be an extension on the deadline this year? Cause that extra time would be greatly appreciated >< Even if it is only a few days.

Same. I should make the deadline, but I have three, possibly 4 days off next week, which would be great to add in whatever else I can find would fit, and figure out my rendering issues.

An extension would definately be nice. Despite knowing of the earlier date of Boston this year, still hard to advance the editing schedule to really get the time to work and polish up a video. An extra week or two would be nice if possible.

I second this motion. It seems very unlikely for me to be able to finish my comedy video by the first...or at least it would require a lot of rushing and not sleeping.

All done with the romance video except for a title, which I'm still thinking about. Unlikely I'll come up with a second video unless I ignore my responsibilities for the next two days.

Videos submitted. Disappointed in the quality, but trying to re-run and re-render it, and if it comes out well enough, I'll re-upload it when I return from dinner tonight. I don't know why, maybe my incident, but this year felt more pressured to get it done than the previous ones.

Entered for Fun/Upbeat and Romance.

AB 2015 is still eleven months away. Rules for next year's con probably won't be finalized until late fall at the earliest, so it's hard to give you a list of requirements right now. The submission deadline is generally 4 to 6 weeks before the con, so expect it to be somewhere in mid-February to early March. Submissions don't open until the rules are finalized, so you have close to six months before you even need to think about that.

This past year's rules are a good starting place for you to look, but as I said, next year's rules haven't been gone over yet. There may be some changes, though they're more likely to be fairly minor.

Good luck with your video, and we look forward to seeing it when you send it.
