Speical thanks to Ian Lesnet. whereisian.com

wow, that is freaking awesome. now i just gotta throw together a project for the contest!

That’s a fast reply. Looks like you are always online.LOL

Very cool… I’ve got a couple of projects that I’ve been playing with, this is a great incentive to finish them up in September.

How strict is this “no music” rule? My son has a great project to submit but it is from a robot dance competition so it absolutely depends on the music. The music is not original but it is from a band which has lots of fan-submitted videos all over YouTube so I don’t think they will sue. :slight_smile:

I’ve been thinking aout the rules, maybe music is very important for your projects. So maybe you can add music to your video but plz include the name of the artist and text: this video is not for commercial.

How do you think?

Thanks, that is a good compromise I think.
