Ladies and gentlemen, TF2 Connexion, the French TF2 community, would like to present the second edition of our TF2 Connexion Movie Contest powered by ROCCAT, our German Sponsor.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SseJwYC2Pyc

Last year entries from AMS, Saladeauthon & .Cali and Grid were the three chosen from a total of 23 participants.

This year, the TF2C Movie Contest is open for everyone (not only for European moviemakers as last year), aimed at all TF2 communities.

This is why we can count on 7 international judges :

- Salamancer and Marxist (TeamFortressTV staff)
- Kaneco (Founder of Comp.tf)
- Huhy (Moviemaker)
- The french trio Remitche (Caster), K3 (Prem Medic) and Twiggy (Caster)

The entries will be graded on the quality of the frags, music and the editing.

The contest begins now and the deadline is fixed at September 30th 2014 on 23:59 CEST (UTC+2).

May the airshots be with you!

Frequently Asked Questions :

When does the contest begin ?

Beginning date: Now!
Deadline: Thursday 30th September 2014 on 23:59 CEST (UTC+2).
The results will be announced in October.

What are the competition's rules regarding content ?

The TF2 Connexion Movie Contest powered by ROCCAT is a TF2-related video contest.
One does not necessarily have to make a fragmovie. It could be a simple fragshow or a jumping movie, however, we do not accept SFM-exclusive movies, although you can still use SFM in your video.

There is a length limit : Under 10 minutes.

How do I make my video eligible for this contest ?

You must use the TF2C/ ROCCAT intro at the beginning of your video.
TF2 Connexion Download link
Mediafire Download link
MEGA Download link

You can edit the intro (music, background) but you need to keep the animation and the visibility of these two logos.
The title of your video on Youtube must include the mention “#TF2Connexion Contest”.
The video submission needs to be in this TFTV thread.

I’m new in editing and I don’t have any contacts to make a democall.

Last year's competition saw some beginners have problems with acquiring frags in order to make movies. We have come up with a way to fix that!
Thanks to Beater we now have a demopack from the ESEA Season 16 LAN.
Our French winner, Saladeauthon has offered his demopack as well.
Of course, it’s not necessary to use these demos but it surely can help some of you to make fragmovies.

Can I do multiple entries ?

You have only one entry for this contest. However, two or more moviemakers can work in one entry.

How will judges evaluate the entries ?

Each of our 7 judges will attempt to grade the movie according to: editing, frag quality, and personal impressions.
Finally, an average mark will be generated for each movie in order to rank them.

Why is there a category for best Frenchman in this contest?

ROCCAT, the german manufacturer of gaming peripherals, is powering this contest instead of on our side. Actually, our partner is focused on the French TF2 community and especially the French league. After discussion with our sponsor, ROCCAT agreed to help us in this international project and this justifies the French place.

What countries are eligible to win ROCCAT gear ?

For this edition, the only countries eligible to win gear from ROCCAT are the following:

- France
- Belgium
- United-Kingdom
- Germany
- Spain
- Italy
- Switzerland
- Austria

If a winner resides outside of these countries, he/ she is not eligible to receive gear from ROCCAT due to the high cost of shipping.

Cash prizes can be won by anyone regardless of your country. Half from the community and the other half from an anonymous donor (who has decided the split of the cashprize especially for the first place). Thus, we will try to renegotiate the intial cash prize. Where currency conversion is an issue, we can renegotiate the cash prize into an equivalent; either games and/or tf2 items.

If a French movie maker takes the first or second place, what happens to the French dedicated place ?

In that case, the highest Frenchman prize will be awarded to the third ranked entry.

This sounds great.
Thanks again for your help, Bones, for the first edition of our movie contest.

Good luck everyone and TF2 Connexion wish some excellent fragmovies from the USA because France has an incredible skill concerning moviemaking (like Saladeauthon and .Cali)

As discussed with Marxist, someone can help us to make a news. Do you have some names ?

This is a big point when we prepare the contest. The old intro is simple and some moviemakers can change the background.

Knowing that the beginning date for everyone was on July 31, it doesn't seem very fair to allow him to participate...

Well, in other editing contests, the rules usually say that all entries have to be made specifically for the contest, not older videos re-uploaded, here the rules dont say that, so its questionable... I also think that it doesnt seem very fair, but if the rules didnt prohibit that in the first place, Im not sure if not allowing him to participate would be fair. I guess its up to TF2C...

I have some questions:
1st of all, googler and I are making a dualclip divided in 4 parts, so prepare for it!
Can we add some of our intros and T3C Intro (A channel that upload edits) after the contest intro?
And about the prizes, I'm from Argentina and Googler from Russia, so in the case we get a good place, what will happen with the ROCCAT gear? Thanks :)
EDIT: Can I edit the velocity of the intro? (you can clearly see all the logos n things)

Hello everybody, i check this topic each day to see if there are big questions concerning this contest.

Almie -> Actually, it's the first time that we see a reupload. We have not a rule about the reupload. I discuss with my TF2 Connexion staff and judges, we will see if there will have more fragmovies like that.
As for us, it's a minor point and of course, we encourage all participants to create new movies.

Hakka -> Yes, you can put your own intro & modify the speed but you need to keep the entire intro (no cut). I already say the response for iridescentFUZZ.
Concerning prices, thanks to the FAQ

If a winner resides outside of these countries, he/ she is not eligible to receive gear from ROCCAT due to the high cost of shipping.
Thus, we will try to renegotiate the intial cash prize.

FmapkmnHow do I make my video eligible for this contest ?
The video submission needs to be in this ETF2L thread.

Some movies are uploaded on Youtube for the TF2 Connexion Movie Contest but there aren't announced in this topic.

Be careful about this big point because we don't ensure your submission for our judges.

You need to publish your name and your youtube link in this thread for complete your contest submission.
