Fantage has released a new video contest along with the new avatar expressions!

Here is the information, taken from a sign at Downtown:

Info

Although Fantage probably won’t let me win again, I will still be entering.

Once again, I will be working alone, not because I am anti-social (lol) but because I do all movie edits in PowerPoint. All of the speech bubbles that you saw in the last video were edited, so I could add proper punctuation without worrying about the chat filters. Working with someone else and coordinating is just too complicated.

I might not be on the blog as much due to this, and art requests will be paused for now.

Hope you all have fun in this, and good luck to you all!

TIP: Make sure you’re not wearing bunny nose when you’re doing this, or the new expressions will make it look as if you’re EATING it xD

P.S. If you haven’t watched my video from the last contest, click here!

More Updates:

Here are some tips!

  • Don’t sit at your computer trying to think of a story line. You’ll get your spark of inspiration easier when you’re walking around and seeing changes of scenery (e.g. walking your dog, doing the dishes, doing the laundry) than if you’re sitting in front of a bright computer screen.
  • Do NOT make a romance video. It might sound all blissful and happy to you, but to your audience– the ADULTS that run Fantage– they will think it cheesy and unimaginative.
  • Even though Fantage didn’t mention it this time, videos that contain advertising and/or copyrighted material will be disqualified! Copyrighted material includes music, so don’t put it into your video!
  • Make your title unique. It is, after all, the first impression Fantage staff will have on your video. If you do something boring like “Mary and the Dog”… Zzzzzzzzz
  • Think outside of the box. Don’t just have your Fantagians talk nonstop for the entire movie. Change the scenery, add twists and surprises, integrate humor, or even edit the video to make it extra interesting, if you know how to.
  • Get to the point. Don’t make a conversation drag on, and most importantly, don’t have long, weird pauses that don’t fit. Try and edit those parts out.

These are just MY tips and what I think will make a good video. You do not have to listen to any my tips, they are just my opinion!

    Im making a video too!

    But when I record, you can always see the mouse/cursor when you move it around. Is there a way to remove it? I think you can help because in your last movie/video, there was no mouse in the way.

    • Yep, Fantage’s attempt at stopping double trading. I think they should just let ecoined and starred items be tradeable, seriously…
      People always argue in response that ecoined items are worth more than starred items, so that wouldn’t work, but well, it doesn’t seem like we care, since so many people trade starred items for ecoins items anyway.

  17. Lolz. When I was posting about this event, I took pictures of all the new emotions and stuff and I didn’t take off my bunny nose so it looked so weird. I was laughing so hard after I posted it, I cried.

    • Ackkkkk I’m still working on it Dx It’s soooo long right now, I’m not even sure how it’s going to end… Is it due BEFORE Monday, or by midnight on Monday?

      • foreverball11 said:

        You don’t need to make it THAT long. 5-7 minutes is good enough. If your video is 20 minutes, im gonna skip most of the parts. Dx

        Fantage’s sign says “by Monday October 14, 2013.” So im not so sure. Try asking Fantage.

      • I’m not trying to make it long on purpose, it’s just that there’s so much I want to add it it! 😀 I doubt it will be 20 minutes, I’m more than half way done already.
