FULL TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

DEADLINES

Our deadline to receive the videos is August 31st 2014. From that date on we will start selecting participants contacting them. We will not contact those that are not selected. The Showfest will take place in the morning of Sunday 16th November 2014.

PRODUCTION

Final edit must be at least a “2K” size in SCOPE format (2048 × 858 or 1920 × 804) format. We accept also 1920×1080 size, but recommend the SCOPE aspect ratio because the GIANT SCREEN that we enjoy use this aspect ratio and we can fill the screen. The frame rate can be 24, 25, 30, 48, 50 or 60. Please, AVOID 23.98 or 29.97,

 We will not be admitting final works with a resolution under 1080P. You must understand that the huge area of the screen and the high quality standards of the projection make it impossible to accept low resolutions works.

This year we want to introduce the HFR (High Frame Rate) format therefore we welcome pieces made at 48/50/60 frames per second. The visual impact of the works produced at these speeds on big screen is really amazing, so we encourage you to send your works in this mode.

Also, even though the fest involves mainly the Timelapse technique, it is possible to participate with normal video, Slow motion, 3D animation … whatever you want!. A minimum of 40% of the shots must be Timelapse.

BE ORIGINAL!

 Unpublished works are a priority to us. If your work is already online it may lose value and we will ask a special version for the Festival if you are finally selected.

 Regarding audio, we admit both Stereo and 5.1. If you do not own the musical rights, ALL liability for its usage goes to the producer of the work.

 Maximum length is 6 minutes. Exceptionally you can send a 9 minutes long video, but in the pre-selection process the duration of the video will be determinant. If the work is narrated, but not in Spanish, we will need the audio transcription so that we can translate it into Spanish subtitles.

SELECTION 

Participants will have to fill in an on-line form available at www.timelapseshowfest.com, enclosing information about their work and a private link to download it.

There will be a selection of TEN OFFICIAL VIDEOS that will be used in the different advertising campaigns carried out by the organization through several media. They will also be published on the web, Facebook and Twitter.

Those that have been selected will receive an email with detailed instructions on the submission of the material we need and others (trailer, making of, video presentation, poster, etc.).

As an introduction to their works the participants will make a short Making-Of video or introduction, with a maximum duration of 50 seconds. If the video is not originally in Spanish, the participant will send and/or include a subtitles file for the organization to translate into Spanish.

The organization is responsible for carrying out the necessary ‘master editing of all videos to the format of the digital projection DCP for FREE. However, the resulting DCP will belong to the organization. A special offer will be available for participants that wish to acquire the resulting DCP to use it in other projections.

All participants will give their express consent to SPECIAL projections in other cities. These projections would be for the exhibitions of the works and with the sole purpose of reaching more public.

A JURY will award three videos out of the ten selected and the public will vote for the winner (out of the ten). The result will be given at the end of the projection, and therefore we would appreciate I you come to the event.

SHIPPING 

If a participant uses a courier service he will be responsible for all shipping and return shipping costs.

Once selected, the participant must follow a guide created to standardize all processes. It is extremely important to follow the guide; otherwise your participation is at risk.

The participant also agrees to respect deadlines.

The organization reserves the right to modify these terms through no fault if it implies a modification of some of the structural elements affecting the same
