*The Wad helped out at the challenge this year in quite a few areas (sponsoring/movie-rights/jury), that’s why he offered editing one just for fun… and funny it is! 😀

Thank you 90to5 editors!

Dear 90to5 editors,

Thank you so much for taking the tough 90to5 challenge this year – it was well worth it! Lots of gems can already be watched and there are still quite a few in line to be published at 90to5.org. 😀

These are the next steps: You can relax and enjoy watching the upcoming edits. We will continue to post your edits till they are all online mid/late November. Once they can all be watched, public voting will take place (a period of roughly two weeks). In the meantime the jurors will do their magic behind closed doors to determine this year’s winners.
Thanks again for your great works of art and for being such good sports – it has been a smooth game for us so far and we are looking forward to the next weeks.

Cheers,
The 90to5ers

Inside The Edit

Hi beloved editors – we’re still talking to some possible sponsors, but we’re going to introduce the one’s confirmed here to get up the excitement 😀

Paddy Bird donates a couple of yearly and monthly subscriptions of his creative editing course “Inside The Edit” to our winners. Thanks heaps Paddy! (challenge.90to5.org/awards)

Check out this video to see what you can learn:

“Editors learn in isolation and pick up the hundreds of skills and techniques needed over many years of analysis and self teaching. The Inside The Edit course is the first time that the secrets of the edit suite have been available to the public, as most of our content has never been written down before.
Our tutorials are a mix of high end editing theory, footage analysis and timeline demonstration that teach the actual artistic process of creative editing.” (www.insidetheedit.com)

You can watch more tutorial examples at https://vimeo.com/insidetheedit 🙂

Cheers,
The 90to5ers

Call for Volunteers

Help! We are having a baby boom at 90to5! All of us have daytime jobs – we used to organize the 90to5 Editing Challenge in our free time, that’s now filled with changing diapers. But we can still make it happen – with your help! The idea is that quite a few people will do just a little task each, rocking it together. Who is in?

These are some of the things you can do to make this year’s challenge the best one ever:

Socializer(s)

– share editing related stuff you would share anyways on your favorite social network on behalf of 90to5.
– post about the 90to5 edits

Celeb Connector

Approach seasoned editors and editing celebs on our behalf – get them to e.g. give us an interview (skype / written) or give a critique to the winning edit or a 10 minute skype consultation to the winner (or to join the jury).

90to5 Editors Communicator

Reply to questions 90to5 contestants have and collect their votes for the Editor’s Pick Award.

Head of Jury

Be in touch with our jury, collect votes or even find additional jurors.

WordPress Manager

Create and post all movie pages at 90to5.org (some basic HTML knowledge is a plus)

Editor in Chief

Add the title card to front and end of the submitted edits, and convert em to mp4. (Using our templates for After Effects and Photoshop should make things fairly easy)

Sponsorship Acquisitor

Try to connect with new sponsors from the editing world so we have nice prizes and can pay the bills for the server or get goodies for jurors/volunteers.

Film Rights Collector

Approach production companies / rights holders on our behalf in order to allow their films to be edited at the 90to5 challenge

Web Developer

We have a few ideas how to improve our websites, but little knowledge/time to do so. You happen to know some php and wordpress and would love to test your skills? You’re in 😀

…or anything else that you can think of that you would love doing and you believe the 90to5 challenge could use.
 

All positions can be shared by a few people so it should be a piece of cake for everyone. The positions we can’t fill, we’ll still try to do ourselves. If we don’t get a lot of response though, there’s still a chance we might cancel the event for this year and hope for our babies to behave by 2017…

Keep in mind – as long as we don’t win the lottery or a solvent sponsor, this is just for fun. However, communicating on our behalf with jurors/celebs/sponsors or other editors will surely win you new friends, expand your professional network and hopefully open some doors for you. Also you might gain some new insights and might influence with your ideas where the challenge will be heading in the future. We definitely put your name/picture on our webpages and volunteer work does look good on your resume, too 🙂
 
Just drop a message to gro<tod>5ot09null<ta>ofni mentioning your favorite position(s) and we will jump for joy 😀
 
If you can’t make it yourself, please share this to your friends who might be interested in lending us a hand. Thank you so much for your support!

Thank you editors!

Dear 90to5 editors,

Thank you so much for all those edit-treats you sent us! We are happily munching away 😀

These are the next steps: You can relax and enjoy watching upcoming edits at 90to5.org.
We will continue to post about one edit per day for about 20 days. After that we will announce when the public voting will be happening (a period of roughly two weeks). In the meantime the jurors will do their magic behind closed doors to figure out this year’s winners. This requires a lot of communication as our jury is spread all over the world… Hopefully we will be able to announce the winners in the first half of December. Watch this space for updates…
Thanks a lot for your awesome edits, your patience and for being such good sports – it has been a fabulous ride for us so far and we are looking forward to the next weeks.

Cheers,
The 90to5ers

Thank you jurors!

This is just a little thank you note and love-letter to our jurors!

They will be taking their time to watch everybody’s edits and think about who should end up taking away the prizes. It is a very tough job, especially as all the source movies are so different.
Give a warm welcome to Beegle who joins the jury this year. Thanks heaps to you and to all our jury members: Juan Manuel, Kirsten, Bin, Reave, Neglify and L8wrtr! We hope you will enjoy watching all those awesome edits we received (and are still receiving) this year.

Unfortunately Mark and TM2YC won’t have time this year – but thanks again for your work and support over the past years! We hope to be able to welcome you back on future editions of our challenge!

Gratefully yours,
The 90to5ers
