So AMC is having a video contest right now. Dish Network dropped AMC and they're asking fans to produce 30-90 second shorts based on this, basically how you would react if you lost their channel. http://www.talenthouse.com/film-viral-video-for-amc

Dfraz, Selfishman and myself produced two. The rules say only one can be submitted per user. We thought of submitting both, but it's the same people in both videos and we fear that if they catch on to that, they'll only pick one and it may be the weaker of the two... or just not pick one at all.

So we're looking for feedback, and ASAP. Submission deadline is Sunday but we want to submit as fast as we can so if there's an issue or something against the rules we can try to fix it.

What we're looking for is which one you all think is better. Critique them. Do you get the point the video is conveying, what should be fixed that wont take more than a day, and most importantly, which one do you think would have a better chance at winning this contest? Here are the videos:





Again, let us know as soon as possible, and we really appreciate the feedback.

while the second one is more like "Oh oh! I see whats going on there... niiiiice"

The first one has more pop... Also, what kind of camera do you guys use, as well mic and stuff?

I like the Second one the best, but the side view running portion has to go. Its was very disorienting.

The one with you running doesn't have the billboard displayed long enough. That and the cancelled message isn't big enough. So itt just looks like you saw and AMC sign and were like "fuck that"

We used the Nikon D7000 as the camera. Audiowise we used an H4n Zoom recorder and an audio-technica mic that i am unsure of the model currently since it came in a bundle with the H4n.

Yeah we didn't have a track or wheels or anything, so in order to get the shot it was just me holding the camera is a stabilization rig that we have, but still me running while holding the camera. The shake here is MUCH more tolerable then any other takes. Unfortunately we can't really remove it as that would probably put us under the 30 second requirement.

I can't really add length since the shot of blame looking up at it ends the second it cuts, but i agree that it's cluttered and while reviewing the rules noticed that it said no logos including those of AMC, so I have to remove all logos anyway and will simply make the board say AMC no longer on dish call blah blah etc. Since it will just be this text, hopefully the length of the clip will be okay as the eye won't be as distracted.

you could try slowing the clip down. if you drag it on for maybe a half second to a second more, it may not be noticeable.
