    Whip out the camcorders, switch your cameras to movie mode, its time for a Video Contest! This contest is for PROTOTYPE videos. Please follow this link to the simultaneous Modeling Video Challenge.

    *Please read all rules as they may have changed from previous weeks*
    If you notice a typo, error, or confusing statement, please notify Mark Watson immediately for correction and clarification.

    Prototype Video Challenge Topic: "Local Tour!"

    Video Contest Rules:
    1. Challenges are open to everyone, have fun!!

    2. The entry deadline is Midnight (UTC -11), Saturday, July 31st
    Late entries will be accepted up until the official "Time's up!" post within the thread.

    3. For videos to be eligible they must be recorded between Thursday, July 1st and Saturday, July 31st
    Make sure to allow time for editing your video and uploading it. Don't wait till the last minute and find the poll closed before your video finishes uploading.
    Please use the challenge as a motive to record new videos!

    4. Any posts with a video recorded before the commencement of the challenge will not be included in the poll and may be moved to the Video Cutting Room Floor thread.
    - Ensure dates and times on your camera are correct. -

    5. Videos must be under 5 minutes so that no one must spend hours going through videos for judging. Choose the footage carefully. There will be a 30 second tolerance. Only one video per participant.

    6. Though composition is popular among voters, it is not required. Any video or quick capture related to the topic is acceptable!

    7. Though not required, commenting on other peoples videos is encouraged. Rating the videos on their video hosting site is also encouraged.

    8. Please use the Video Cutting Room Floor thread for related but ineligible videos.

    9. A clever and distinctive title for your video helps identify it among voters. (And makes it easier for me when posting the poll ;) )
    On August 1st, all entries will be put up for a public vote, in which all members of TrainBoard may vote for their favorite entry(s), regardless of whether you submitted an entry or not. Voting will last 6 days. You may vote for multiple entries. To do this, you must select all entries for which you wish to vote at once, and then click the submit button. We ask that you view all videos before voting.


    Please follow instructions on this thread for recommendations and instructions for working with video files online and posing them to TrainBoard. If you have any further questions, contact Mark Watson or simply post them to the thread and someone will get back to you asap.

    I'm looking forward to seeing some local hot spots for rail-fanning. I hope someone will give us a tour of their area soon. ;)

    Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to get to the location I want until July 30, so it might be a little tight. I don't get by this place very often (The NKP's Painesville trestle) but there's an event across the street at the end of the month that I'm sure to be at.

    Instead of having a Modeling Photo Challenge this weekend, I'm giving everyone some extra time to get their layout/local tours filmed. :D :D ;) ;)

    This video was shot in 2009 but is it still "good".

    **Video recorded before contest start. See the video in the Cutting Room Floor.

    Uh oh. Great video, but 2009 was a little early for this contest. :(
    I'll move your entry to the cutting room floor where we can still enjoy it. :)

    GhostFanning Colorado

    Well, if you know anything about Colorado Railfanning, there is no way to get everywhere in a month let alone limit to a 5 minute video so Mark has asked for the impossible this round. Well, we finally just today got out and do a little bit of Railfanning south of town and I put together this quick review of today's sites & sounds. This just scratches the surface of a Local Tour! but it does give you a feel of what one might see/do in any given day around my home.

    We started out the day tracking down more RR Stations that we have not photographed with a long list still to go. We next stopped by the Western Museum of Mining and Industry which has some RR equipment used in mining operations. We concluded our day down in C-Springs at the Pikes Peak Municipal Street Railway which is at the old RI Roundhouse. The museum is making a pitch to get the Streetcars back into operation within C-Springs as part of their mass transportation; I wish the well!

    So, here is our July 31st outing squished down to just under 5 minutes...

    Congratulations Darren! I consider it part of the challenge to edit the videos to under 5 minutes, and you accomplished it perfectly! (Feel free to share a Directors Cut of the whole outing ;) )
