This would make a good OpenOffice Impress presentation, no?

Easier to print this out on high quality paper myself than go through this charade.

I'd like to have it but my camera won't work. I'll try to get it fixed as soon as possible.

Btw, do I have to appear in the YouTube Video?

Adam, if you prefer to stay anonymous in the video you might find ways to do that, e.g. by using big shades, having your colleague speak for you, using a puppet and so on :)

Bovine, the reason for making this a bit harder is that we want to give people who really want the comic (e.g. a big Scott McCloud fan?) a higher chance of winning it, because someone who doesn't really want it might not want to upload a video. If nobody participates, well let's see what we might do to make it easier.

My camera isn't working either, so this is just a quick video. (If you can't see the text, a higher-quality version is available.)

Hope I'm not too late. I have a full day class Tuesday(from 8:00 am – 10:00 pm). My camera won't be fixed next week so I made a simple one.

I think we share some ideas, Jake:)

Here is my video:

I made a video yesterday, but I just can't force my iMovie to import Photo Booth video (?!) – don't know why. So now I race against the clock and my cold. If my temperature go down I'll try to transcode the video and maybe post it.

I really fail to see the point of a lottery.

If the contestants just had to put down their names+email, a draft or lottery would suffice.

But in this case, there's an implicit requirement for creative case, and as such, it should be evaluated and properly rewarded.

Here's my attempt:

I've never shot a video before, but this was a good excuse to try one. The quality is not very good (it's shot on my phone).

I tried YouTube's "audio swap", but YouTube must be re-compressing the video when it swaps the audio, because it made the quality much worse.

So, I re-uploaded the original, which is silent except for background noise.

Heh. Nice video.

My (really bad) attempt at a video. As with every one else, I used a Phone's camera :(

I apologise for the bad video, bad audio and bad speech in advance :P

Thanks to everyone for participating! The videos were cool. The contest is closed now. I will collect from all the existing entries above and choose a random winner soon afterwards and announce here.

I created a script which picked one random person among the following contestants:
('christoph', 'Jake', 'adamzhu1986', 'Seth Levy', 'Roger Browne', 'Mrrix32', 'Navarr Barnier')

After testing, I decided to hit the randomization 3 times and whoever ended up being picked at the third time was the winner. I refreshed 3 times.

And the winner is...

Mrrix32!

Congratulations, Mrrix32.

And that's a cool lego logo.

DAMN IT! I missed this by a few hours. I'm a big Scott McCloud fan after I met him and he signed my copy of Understanding Comics when i was 9. I still have that book and would have loved to have had this comic.

Woe is me.
