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 the TF2C thread (french), ETF2L thread (european and others) or TFTV thread (american).

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 (link).
Our French winner, Saladeauthon has offered his demopack as well (link).
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.

TF2 Connexion staff and ROCCAT say good luck to all TF2 moviemakers !

iksD top 5 plays returns! Edited by siN and hosted by Pledge


September 16th News
Tagged: Movies top 5

Pledge — A while ago there used to be a highlight series done by iksD videos. I actually did commentary on one of their top 5 videos. They’ve disappeared for a while, but their editor siN has taken it upon himself to restart the project. I got asked to do the commentary – I messed up loads but managed to make it work in the end – and then the first edition of the renewed iksD top 5 plays was here. I’d like to share the video with you guys, as siN himself didn’t trust in his English skills to make a proper article. Enjoy the video, submit your demos to the link provided at the end of the video and maybe you’ll be featured in the next edition of the iksD top 5 plays!

VanillaTV YouTube Update


February 21st Feature
Tagged: frag movie Highlights Movies vanillatf2 vanillatv

CUBE —  It’s been a while since I’ve written an update regarding the VanillaTV YouTube Channel, so here’s a news post to let you know what we’ve been up to and what we’ve got planned for the coming months.

Fragmovies of the Month

For any of you that haven’t seen, a couple of days ago we released a new series called VanlliaTV Fragmovies of the Month, which rates and reviews TF2 Fragmovies from the previous month and provides links to the full movies. The idea behind this is to help editors gain more exposure for their fragmovies and also to hopefully increase the quality of the fragmovies by giving new editors an idea as to what people look for in a fragmovie.

I want to give a massive thanks to  BoneS and  Skyride for helping me review the videos and since releasing the video, I have also been approached by decap and  FreezeR who will now be joining the panel to help rate and review in future months.

We’ve had some great feedback since releasing the video and will start thinking about which movies to review for February very soon, expect to see the February video around mid-March.

More updates after the jump…
