Topic: Submission concerns

Hey guys!

New filmmaker and first time fighter here.

I submitted my film called "The Closet" to this week's fight but I got a black screen on the preview but went ahead anyways (I thought it was a bug and it just got stuck).

With less than 12 hours til the deadline I'm just getting worried cause I haven't received a confirmation email.

Note: The one I submitted was a 1080p version and since I was so worried about it going through I deleted that one and reuploaded a 720p version (probably a bad idea) after reading that we should upload it in 720p. When I try to resubmit I get redirected to the homepage (no submission successful video like the first time).

Anyone mind lending a helping hand?

Thanks

Re: Submission concerns

I just entered my submission at 11:20pm.
It's called "Locked In"

Am I still in the running if I'm 40 minutes ahead of the deadline? I see that all the other submissions are on the home page already! sad

Deadstrange,

How come mine was never uploaded? I emailed you several times like you asked me to but got no response. This was the week before last. I really don't understand the submission process on here.

Thanks,
Michael

Re: Submission concerns

i'm having the same problem, i tried submission last night, didn't work. can I still submit today?

Re: Submission concerns

The site needs an update real bad. It would be so awesome if the submission process was more user friendly. Every time I submit I worry that it might not have gone through.

Re: Submission concerns

Hey guys,

We are in the process of finding someone to update the site. We know about the submission error issues. Unfortunately, it costs quite a bit of money to get the site updated, and we want to keep FilmFights free, so it comes right out of Justin's pocket to fix the site. It's  a slow process, but we will get it updated.

Thanks!

Re: Submission concerns

....So does that mean I am going to actually be in the fight? I submitted it a long time ago...

Re: Submission concerns

Deadstrange,

I'm a professional designer. If there's anything I could do to help just let me know. If there's a place to donate, I'd be willing to pitch in on updating the site too. Film Fights is an important place for young filmmakers to grow.

Resubmit, I don't see anything from your group. Are you using a YouTube link or directly uploading to the site?

Try uploading to YouTube and then use the URL to submit here.

Thanks dude! Do you have a website with your work?

Re: Submission concerns

I tried both at the time but neither worked (youtube link, direct upload).
You also requested me to email you. I did as well. I sent it via careerenderfilms (at) gmail.com to filmfights (at) gmail.com

I will try to resubmit when I get home today.

Thanks!
Michael

Just found your emails. I recently condsolidated like 8 different email addresses so I'm guessing maybe that's why I never saw your emails. Give it another go tonight and message me back, once it's submitted.

I'm a visual designer at Amazon but my skills are in graphics rather than a web design. I've re-skinned plenty of Wordpress templates in my day for my site: http://gameovernation.com/

Here's a link to my totally outdated portfolio: http://cargocollective.com/javiG0N

I wouldn't be able to build a site from scratch, but I can help with the look, feel and any banners you may need.

BTW: My submission for "What was that noise" is still nowhere to be found. sad I tried re-submitting just now.

Thanks,

Re: Submission concerns

Not sure if my submission went through, didn't get any email, so I was wondering if I have to resubmit.
