    1. btw its supposed to be one character, and 30 seconds long.

      Delete
    2. btw it doesn't say that in the instructions , you're allowed to submit as a group and it's only 34 secs long.

      Delete
    3. uhm, yes it does, you didnt pay close attention. but whatever, get disqualified.

    4. Hi,

      Just to clarify you can submit with your friends as a group with different people taking on different characters. If that wasn't clear, our apologies. Remember this contest is about having fun and sharing in something we all love!

      Delete
    5. but doesnt it have to be of just 1 character, but other characters can help pursue the role of the main character?

      Delete
    6. They just said: "different people taking on different characters." sounds clear to me. Focus on your own submission.

    7. Thanks for clearing that up for us CM_SetReport :) We did have loads of fun :)

  9. question for cmsetreport: are we allowed to use music that is protected by copyright? i thinking the answer is no, but i just want to make sure..thanks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. "They may be edited, set to music, silent, whatever."

      Delete
    2. yes, "set to music", but does it have to be an original score or can it be... say, 'who let the dogs out' or 'bad romance', etc? i just don't want to get myself or anyone else in trouble. i've run into this problem before with various other projects. i know the rules technically say "whatever", but whatever isn't exactly legal terminology. i also know that this contest is just supposed to be about fun and i don't wanna bring anyone down. on the contrary, i want to make sure everyone's fun is safe from possible legal action, and while that may seem silly to some people, other people might consider it just enough reason to file a complaint or even a suit. i'm so so sorry, i really am, but i just don't want myself or someone else to put effort into something and then have something tragic happen as a result. maybe i'm just being paranoid, and there's probably nothing to worry about, but i believe in the phrase "it is better to be safe than sorry", and clearer guidelines are just a suggestion, no one really has to listen to me, but i would really appreciate it ever so much. thank you again. ~AMG*

      Delete
    3. Using music, whether copyrighted or not, will not disqualify you in any way. You should be mindful of the general fair use rules and the guidelines for posting something on youtube or vimeo with copyrighted music. This contest does not provide any kind of legal cover or protection so if you're worried about it, then please use only what you are comfortable with.

      Delete
    4. thank you so much for the response. i really didn't want to kick up a fuss, but i was worried. after researching the problem, i think it'll be alright, but i'll just start from scratch if it goes bust. thank you so much again. good luck to everyone! {i really love the puppet one!} ~AMG*

  10. CM_SetReport!!: If I make a video of Prentiss imitating/making fun of her BAU friends would that be adhering to the "one character" rule??? Technically, I would be one character (Prentiss)!!

  14. Hi. I was wondering if I could privately send you my video or something because I would prefer for just you guys to see it and so would our parents if thats alright with the information attached of course. Also is it ok if it's 4 seconds over? :/ One more question. By the meaning of actors do you mean the cast? Like Thomas, Paget, AJ, Matthew etc.? Like will they be watching them all? Thanks again for your time.

  33. Hi CM_SetReport!
    Quick question: If I'm making a video focused on Emily Prentiss but have another person playing JJ in a few parts would that still work or does it simply need to all be one person for the one character rule?

    Because I'd kick myself if I didn't do it. And on YT it's showing up as 31 seconds when it's not on movie maker...

    But you'd understand after years of CM watching I don't want to stick my full name, location and face on the Internet together? If you want it I'll add my full name on it but I'd rather not.

    the video is really only 30 seconds long..I wasn't sure if we were supposed to like introduce the scene or what not before the actual video so I just popped a picture in the beg. Hope that's okay! I just realllllyyyy loved this quote!! Also, figured there needed to be some more JJ represented :)
