Official Feral Heart AMV Contest 2018 - INFO
« on: April 05, 2018, 12:36:12 pm »

| Click here for the Submission Thread |

Deadline: July 1st

It's time to roll out the red carpet and get your tickets to Hollywood because the Official Feral Heart AMV contest in now in production!

In the early years of Feral Heart, Staff had hosted an AMV contest for the community that turned out to be very fun and successful. We're proud to announce that we are bringing the AMV contest back for this spring! An AMV can be defined as an Animated Music Video and usually consists of edited clips that are played out to a song. Here at Feral Heart, we're calling all video editors to make their own AMV using clips of your's or your friends' characters doing cool things to the beat of music! You can use any song you like and use any editing effects to enhance your videos!

This year, we are giving users the choice between 3 different themes. You may pick one theme that appeals to you and use this theme to create your video! Remember that part of the scoring will be based on how well you represent your theme with your video!

The themes you may pick from are:



-Only one submission per user
-You must chose and adhere to one of the three provided themes
- You must specify which theme you chose to do in your Submission
-You may only submit your work! You will be disqualified if you submit the work of another user
-Video needs to be at least 1 minute in length
-All entries must be in on the day of the deadline. Any late entries will not be accepted
-All entries must be posted on the Submissions Thread
-Only Feral Heart content can be used in the videos. No other outside media such as artwork, other games, animated clips, etc.
- Be sure to specify your main theme in your submission post.


- Copyrighted music is okay to use. Just be aware of what the uploading platform feels about copyright and how they might handle it.
- You may upload to any platform that you are familiar with and comfortable with.
- Custom animations and custom maps are fine to use
- Presets are okay to wear while filming.
- Any music is allowed. Music with lyrics and music without.
- It is fine if your theme happens to contain certain elements from any of the other of the two themes as long as it sticks to the main theme as its focus. Be sure to specify your main theme in your submission post.
- Your music may contain a few explicit lyrics as long as it is not obscene or excessively vulgar in nature. Feel free to message a moderator if you are unsure if your song is okay or not.
    - Keep in mind that if you want to lip sync your lyrics in your video, to not say the swear words in any public maps in-game.

I have a few questions before I participate.

Can there be a song that has copyright?

Can I constantly modify the dances and poses, walking and running, stretch and roar, etc. as I film, to technically animate a video that's filmed ingame? Or... Can I constantly swap animations between existing animations instead of tailoring my animations to fit the scene?

Or does the video have to have the default animations? Or at least animations that have a download link?

Can the video be filmed in a custom map(Or bunch of custom maps)?

And, if action is one of the themes, and I must stick to one theme, then how do I make an adventure or fantasy without action? And how do I film action without any adventure or fantasy?

Adding to FlyingGrass questions, is there a length limit? and the requirements are not specific enough for me to comprehend.

What are the rules on songs with lyrics that might have explicit language or otherwise reference "inappropriate" topics? Or are subtly suggestive?

I assume nothing insanely out of line, but I'm just wondering if it's alright if there might be a swear word or two or w/e in a song.
