    Cool The SOTP Video Competition 2019

    The SOTP Video Competition is now open
    Last year the Video Competition final was held in front of a live Audience during a paddle meet in North Notts and it proved an enjoyable experience...…..well I enjoyed it anyway . So this years competition will follow a similar format.
    Here is a link to Mal's blogg of the event http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk/for...ntin-s-in-town


    How it works
    As with previous competitions please post your video entries in this thread.
    The SOTP film academy will select a list of Finalists and the audience will select the winners at a paddle/film festival/camp to be held on the weekend before Halloween 25th-28th October
    The venue has been generously offered by long time friends of SOTP Di & Jax (Thank you ladies) and is located in West Drayton Nottinghamshire, about 1/2 mile from the best launch point on the Idle. Full details will be posted in the meets section in due course but there will be camping available throughout the weekend. Link to the Film festival meet http://www.songofthepaddle.co.uk/for...-25th-28th-Oct

    So back to the film competition.

    The Rules
    1. You may enter your own video or one made by another member with their permission.

    2. You can nominate one video a day.

    3. The video must be vaguely canoe/paddling related.

    4. Please keep the video's shorter than 10 minutes. Having watched these films live, the sweet spot seems to be around 4-7 minutes.

    5. They must not have been entered in previous SOTP video competitions

    6. They must not be made by professional production companies.

    And this one is very important
    7. you must be willing for your film to be played in public if it makes the final. If you enter a film, permission to play it at the Hallowscreen Do will be assumed to have been received. You can of course withdraw permission at any time, you are not giving up any rights to your property but if you are unwilling for it to be played at the festival please do not enter.
    In addition, any entry made on face book will be be posted on here. Again, if you are not happy with this arrangement please do not enter.

    PS please select a format that works with windows media player or VLC.

    There will be prizes but surely the only motivation you need is The Quentin



    Real solid gold paint......honest!!! I'm looking forward to the enjoying the fruits of your labour

    This Competition will close in one Month........ on the 9th of August

    Good luck to all!

    BobT normally has a few. I may have to nominate one or two if they don't appear in due course...

    I honestly don't feel that I have anything to offer for this year. I'm busy building up footage this summer which I will edit over the winter months and perhaps these will make next year's cut? I do appreciate the interest though, Mal, so thanks for that.

    As I haven't been anywhere interesting, I wasn't going to enter this year, but after a little prod, I'm entering this video, just so we can have a bit of controversy like they have at the Hollywood awards shows.



    It definitely, 100%, abides by 6 of the rules of the competition.

    We have had some great films entered, but not really enough to have a legitimate competition and certainly not enough for a film festival.
    So I'm going to let this competition stay open until the last day of September. I still intend to hold a Hallowscreen do final in October
    So anyone who fancies having a go still has plenty of time to gather some footage and submit it. Some more entries would be much appreciated. Cheers

    You must hold the meet, even if we have to watch Deliverance.
    "Oh, Eeyore, you are wet!" said Piglet, feeling him.Eeyore shook himself, and asked somebody to explain to Piglet what happened when you had been inside a river for quite a long time.

    Ok guys. Feel free to use any of my films that are eligible. If you go onto my Youtube channel I would say that anything from "To Canoe is to Live" onwards would meet the criteria. I think they are all a bit rough and unpolished and not really close to competition standard but if it gives you guys enough vids to have a movie night then fill yer boots.

    Kind offer ……..but I have a vague feeling of unfairness if I start selecting video's for the competition.

    This is a film made up from previous footage in other films but I believe it remains eligible as it is still a new composition

    This was done on a phone so quality is poor but subject matter is fascinating.

    I guess this one is also eligible. I've gone for the "natural" version but others might like the version with music.
