    Do you like videos?
    do you like watching videos?

    do you like making videos?
    Well i got a contest for you, That's right. Another server wide contest!


    I'm looking for all videographers, editors or even someone who just wants to participate in the social media aspect of this server. I am looking to 'hire' someone to create or produce a 90-150 second video trailer that captures and highlights our server, Sapphire Dimensions.

    Here is a couple past videos that our own Manic_Miner666 has created for us.
    Sapphire Dimensions Minecraft Server
    Sapphire Dimensions is now 1.10!

    Each video must contain:

    the server IP clearly posted somewhere in the video and in the description (preferably Title and/or end card)
    No copy write songs as these videos will be posted to public social media. (also no swearing)
    Preferably no verbal commentary (voice overs , talking over video etc)
    Preferably clean movements (enable cinematic camera in vanilla minecraft settings)
    Smooth transitions, no hard cuts.
    SillyOldBadger has shared his source of music But you must give credit to the appropriate author.

    Tbh, I haven't seen more than 5 or 6 people on at a time in a while, ever since school started (Kinda like what Manic and Epic said), the server's been kinda quiet. Not sure what to do about exactly how much more time we would need, but an extra month sounds like a lot to ask of you crazy staff members ;).

    uhh... lemme see...


    GET ON THE SERVER AND DO STUPID STUFF FOR ME THANKS

    P.S.: Is it okay to do slideshows? I only have screenshots...

    Same issue, I have lots of lovely sweeping shots of the server, but players are lacking. I am 95% complete with my vid, but I need player interactions and some PVP to make it complete.

    We should then plan a time around where at least 4-6 people can get on and have a "game of PVP" as a final option. (Or do other things)

    Hey guys! So, I recently found a new website that I've been playing around on... and I've been making a few little chiptunes! So, if anyone wants some *uncopywrited at the moment* music, here I am!

    - With love, a practicing composer.
