Humzoo Video Contests Have Arrived

humzooToday marks the beginning of a very special Humzoo event. We're launching the first ever Humzoo video contest. Deep down inside us all, there is a dream to be big-time Hollywood film director. This is your chance to show everyone what you've got!

We're very excited about the new contests and think these will be a lot of fun! We aim to make the contest simple enough that you don't need a fancy camera or editing software to participate. Creativity, a basic video camera and a way to get it in a format accepted by Humzoo are the only requirements. We'll be running the video contests a little longer (3 weeks average) to give everyone plenty of time to get a good take and get it entered in the contest.

And best of all, we're giving away a prize with each video contest! All contest winners will receive a Humzoo Gift Card, which is good for a free one-year Humdinger upgrade (they also make great gifts!). We'll contact contest winners to obtain their information within 3 days of the close of each contest. Now for the details of the first contest.

One-Minute Video Contest
Videos must be exactly one-minute long uncut footage, no shorter and no longer. All sound must be original to the take (no effects or ambient sounds can be added during editing). The footage can not be enhanced or modified in any way (no graphics or visual effects), we're looking for exactly what the camera recorded. What happens within the minute will be the real crowd pleaser!

It may very well come down to the wire in the end, so you're going to need all the votes you can get. Be sure to tell your friends about your video once it's up on Humzoo and ask them to vote for you! Let's see what you've got, Humzoo!

LOL Connor!

When I began reading this I thought to myself, "I have no editing software, I can't compete." But you guys thought of people like me. THANKS!! This will definitely be fun!

We definitely want it to be available to everyone. These days you can get a video camera for less than $100 (check out the Flips, they are very nice and affordable). I guess you could also use a built-in web cam if it came down to it. Also, computers come with free video editing software these days -- iMovie and MovieMaker 2. No excuses, people!

Sounds like fun. I can't afford any more hobbies at the moment. A video camera would be fun to own.

I wonder... Will this count as an excuse from homework?
