CON.TXT 2021 Vid Show: Submit What You'd Like to See and Make
Hi everyone! Your friendly vid show committee—alpheratz, cinco, corbae, and salvamisandwich—is looking for suggestions for CON.TXT's 2021 vid show! Tell us about the vids you love in new and old fandoms, and definitely tell us if you're thinking about submitting a premiere to the show! This year's vid show will be the evening of Saturday, June 26th (Eastern time)
VID NOMINATIONS AND PREMIERE SUBMISSIONS
To nominate a vid for inclusion in the show, head on over to our vid nomination form. Please don't be shy: self-nominate as much as you like! The deadline for vid nominations is May 30th, 2021, at 11:59 EDT.
If you're thinking of submitting a premiere, please fill out the premiere interest form. This does not commit you to anything! This poll will remain open through May 30th, 2021 as well, but note that the deadline to submit final premiere drafts is later. Read below for more details on submitting premieres.
We accept premieres for any fandom and with any type of content, but if it would be helpful to you to get a sense of the typical tone of CON.TXT vid shows, you can check out last year's playlist.
Drafts are due Sunday, May 30th, 2021 (as long as it is May 30th anywhere in the world). For this purpose, a draft is a vid with at least an 80% completed timeline and a beginning, middle, and end.
To submit your draft vid, email us a link at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. The link can be to Gdrive, Dropbox, an unlisted YouTube or Vimeo video, your own website—whatever!
Final vids are due Friday, June 11th (as long as it is June 11th anywhere in the world). We can work with you if you want to make tweaks after that date, though—just email us.
Final vids should be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo as unlisted videos. They should not be password protected. This year, we are asking that you also submit subtitles alongside your premiere. Festivids has some great information on creating subtitles for your vid.
To submit your final vid, email a link to the unlisted video to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year we will be using an updated content notes policy. Last year's, for reference, is located on our website. An updated policy will be released in the coming months—we anticipate revising our old one based on the excellent improvements and additions made by Fanworks. We will add content notes to your vid according to our policy, but you are welcome to provide any additional notes you feel are appropriate.
If we’ve left anything out, or if you’d like to know more about the con or the vid show, please ask! You can reach us at email@example.com or comment on our Dreamwidth post. You do not need a Dreamwidth account to comment.
If you have a Yahoo or Netscape account, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
