I am starting, yet, another contest. This is a big one that I would like everybody that can, to compete in.
Registration is now closed.
Other (if you and 1 other people select the same style, I will add it in as a contest division)
How to submit videos:
I have created a YouTube account that will be used as the contest account. Everybody should upload their videos onto that account, so they can be edited if needed or anything else like that. Just upload them and I will move them to where they need to be, etc. Make the videos public.
- I can and may make exceptions to the rules if needed.
Section 1: (Divisions)
- Every division opens once one person has entered other than the “Other” division. That requires two contestants entered for the same division.
- There is no limit to number of divisions you may enter. Just register multiple times, each time using a different division
- You may not change divisions in mid-video.
- For every division you enter, you must create a separate video.
Section 2: (Videos)
- Follow time rules by division.
- Videos must be titled like so: Zorro’s 2014 Freestyle Contest - [Division], [Round] - [Forum Name]
- After results, video name will be edited to: Zorro’s 2014 Freestyle Contest - [Division], [Round] - [Place] - [Forum Name]
- You can add a title and/or credits if necessary
- You have unlimited amount of tries, but video must be one-take long
Section 3: (Music)
- Music must be considered G-rated
- Music is required Music is not required but highly recommended. No music means not Music Use score.
- Music can be either 1) played in film background, or 2) edited into video.
If more rules should be added/subtracted, PM me with the info you would like posted.
1A Prelims will go into effect starting now. No prelims for 2A-5A
(Shoutout to Palli for thinking of doing it this way)
10%Variety: variety of concepts used, different kind of tricks
10%Rareness: originality,newness and creativity
10%Music use: Going to the rhythm of the beat, choreography to music, music cues
10%Control: This is a combination of the execution and body control grading systems from the IYYF rules, this is how good control you have over the yoyo and how smoothly you execute your tricks
60% Tech: plus and minus clicks most people know how this works. Positive clicks for string hits and other trick elements, harder elements can give multiple clicks, negatives for misses and loss of control. Repeated elements will score less clicks or not at all if repeated too frequently.
Major Deducts: -1 restart, -3 discard(probably wont need them though since you get unlimited tries filming)
You all make a video of your freestyle, very similar to UFVC, but you have unlimited takes. The videos will be set to a certain length depending on if there are prelims or not. As for judging, I will post the scoring system, etc shortly. I would prefer it if some of the professionals on these forums would sign-up as a judge. That would be best. Invited guests automatically get selected to be judges.
NEW FORMAT: This new way of doing this is to prevent videos being deleted. Upload all your videos on your personal account and send me a link. I will put all of them in a playlist on mine and change the password so nobody can edit them except for me. That way, all the contestants and judges can all go to one place to watch the videos. To send me the link, PM me.
