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

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

Welcome to the 90to5 Editing Challenge


The 90to5 Editing Challenge is all about the art & fun of film editing. We encourage you to take part in our contest to polish you editing skills, have fun, learn and teach

Cut a 90 minute feature down to 5


We dare you to edit a full feature length movie down to 5 minutes… without losing the essence of the story! Basically, you create a short film using material provided by the 90 minute feature (Best Edit Award).
Or create a totally new story from the original footage for the Fun Edit Award.

It’s as easy as falling off a log


1. Pick your favorite movie
2. Start up the editing software of your choice and cut away…
3. Upload your masterpiece ’til October 25th November 1st 2015!

Watch last year’s edits to get inspired


Quite a couple of awesome edits can be found at 90to5.org or at our youtube channel. Notice the differences in movies that have been edited multiple times.

Cheers!
The 90to5 team
