    CTRL + ALT + SPACE – Elite Dangerous Film Competition 2017

    Attachment 117966

    As you might remember we held a video competition in 2015 called CTRL+ALT+SPACE and the entries we received were awesome. Now with The Commanders Update 2.3 the ability for video content creators to control the camera and apply certain effects during capture, we are hosting a new CTRL+ALT+SPACE!


    How To Enter
    Create a short film (no more than 4 minutes) in a theme of your choosing using the Camera Suite. This theme could be a short story, a trailer, or anything else you wish; however, be aware of the rules listed below before entering! Upload your video to YouTube as Public or Unlisted and send the URL of the video to community@frontier.co.uk with CTRL+ALT+SPACE in the Subject line!


    We’re looking to be dazzled so whether you decide to create a trailer or a short film, the idea should be clear in your head and conveyed through your video.


    We’re looking forward to seeing what you make, CMDRs.


    Entries will close on Tuesday 9th May at 23:59 UTC

    The winner of the Elite Dangerous Film Competition 2017 will receive the following amazing bundle of prizes from Elgato and HyperX, and the Frontier Store:

    How will the competition be judged?

    Much like last year, we will be working with the video editors and artists to come up with 10 videos that truly stand out. After that we’ll be sitting down together with a panel of judges and deciding on the number 1 film!
    We will be judging based on creativity, originality, ingenuity and we will be paying close attention to editing, narrative, and scene composition.
    We will then show the top 10 films on a livestream with members from the judging panel explaining their choices.


    Rules


    • Video content must be no more than 4 minutes long
    • Upload your videos to YouTube either as Public or Unlisted and send the link to community@frontier.co.uk
    • All entries must be submitted by Tuesday 9th May 2017 at 23:59 UTC – the judging process will then take a week
    • You are responsible for licensing any copyrighted material such as music tracks that you use in your submission
    • Objectionable or offensive content will be disqualified

    These days YouTube tends to have a far more reasonable approach to the use of copyright music.

    If you go here ..

    https://www.youtube.com/music_policies

    .. search for the name of the track you intend to use and then select it you'll see a description of their policy concerning that track.

    For example, for Iggy Pop's The Passenger it says ..

    If you use this song
    Playback: Viewable worldwide
    Advertising: Ads can appear

    If you perform a cover
    Playback: Viewable worldwide
    Advertising: Ads can appear

    What is your policy regarding this competion?

    Indeed, but the 'rule' that was posted is a bit of a catch-all. We don't have any restrictions on the music or ads attached to the video, but it is the responsibility of the video creator to make sure they have permission to use the music and credit as necessary.

    Subbed.... Looking forward to seeing what kind of creative content people can come up with. Wish there were more time to come up with something. It would be difficult for me to contribute with Real Life occurring simultaneously along with my Elite Simulation time frame.

    Houston... we seem to be experiencing technical difficulties.... please advise. Over.




    Kidding aside, this sounds like fun and I'm off to give it a go.

    AND THE WINNER IS!

    "These days any man who can sew a black flag and get ten fools to follow him can take a prize.
    They can take it because of the fear that I and men like me have instilled in their prey.
    But they can't do what I can do. They're not built for it. And sooner or later, they'll be exposed." Capt'n Flint

    Can we use music from the game and credit Frontier Developments?

    While I'll admit this sounds like the whole lots of work to have fun I have been known to engage in...

    I don't want any of the prizes.

    I've no need of a video capture card.
    I like my Plantronics Headset.
    I only use ergonomic keyboards.
    A mousepad is a bit of rubber with some fabric glued to it.
    And I don't use cosmetics. I bought The Commanders Pack when I bought Elite and Horizons. I used the blue paintjob on my Sidewinder for the day I used my Sidewinder. I've never wanted to buy anything else.
    I don't want to be a famous YouPotato, or help anyone ever sell advertisement. If my opinion of the advertising industry were any lower you could slide it under an ambulance-chasing shyster doing the limbo under a flatworm.

    So I will wish all the competitors the best of luck, and spend my time making credits instead!

    Hah, I had a feeling this would be coming with the new camera suite, but I somehow wasn't cynical enough at the time to say it out loud. Can't afford your own advertising, or just getting too used to "crowdsourcing" it?

    On the flipside, I'd rather see 20 awesome videos than 2 that FD made. This new camera is basically worth its dev time 20x over because we all know that a lot of this community are super-creative with this stuff and then it makes for awesome promo stuff. This is probably my favourite feature of 2.3.

    GIMME DEM VIDEOS!

    Or maybe we loved hosting this competition last time so much that we wanted to do it again. We like seeing the videos the community already make and thought this would be a fun incentive. So much unnecessary, misplaced negativity in your post. I was the driving force behind this competition - Community engagement not marketing was at the heart of it.

    How come you didn't do one last year
