I don't get it. Is the UU staff going to choose the winner based on how cool that landmark is, or how great the ukulele performance is...o' wha? Anyone..anyone?? Rayan...Aldrine...clarification por favor!

I am purchasing tickets to the Egyptian pyramids right now...good luck suckers...ha.:rolleyes:

Haha. Yeah it is going to be quite subjective but we will be evaluating on, landmark coolness, creativity as far as how the video is put together, and what you say in your video (This is ______ and I'm part of the Ukulele Underground!______________________________________ _. )

What we don't want is people going out and saying, "This is my entry into ..." We want these videos to be your declaration that you are a part of the Ukulele Underground.

Pretty much if it makes us go, DAMN that is cool. It will win. The video didn't say but we also have a 2nd place prize. A cool uke stand that was also given to us by Kala Ukulele.

We'll also be using some of these videos as bumpers into some of our videos so you might see yourself in uke minutes starting May.

Jimmy
04-05-2008, 10:42 AM
"OH SNAP THAT IS COOL" factor? Oh dear. I'm going for the "Hm, that's mildly interesting." factor.

I'll have to take a photo, because the lack of recording thing. I'll get a sign that says "Ukulele Underground" as my da takes pictures. Sorry it won't be in video format, but I'll try to make do without one.

Does video quality count because my digital cam is very WEAK when it uploads to my computer.

Any suggestions on some good video editing program? I'm thinking of entering this because I need a new ukulele bad.

Jimmy
04-05-2008, 12:03 PM
Windows Movie Maker is easy to use, but very basic. I suppose that's two plus points, maybe. We use our Mac anyway.

Also, my da has informed my that his digital camera can take not-great quality videos. I suppose any video is better than no video.

Personal opinion here, but I think these contest videos should only be posted at the end for everyone to see.

Posting them as they come in makes it easy to see people's cool ideas and then "one up" them or take their creative ideas and modify them to your advantage.

Definitely! Feel free, if you don't have an ukulele to do a video with, to do a video with a "fake" (cardboard cut-out, or what have you) ukulele that this super-tight Kala Tenor would replace!

Remember we're looking for videos from the soul, so do your best, with whatever you got, and I promise, we'll consider you.

I'm not sure if I will be submitting a video or not. I seriously doubt there's much chance of me winning two ukulele giveaway contests in a row:eek:.

However, if I do submit a video and should somehow win (I spoke of this with Ryan last night) I'm officially going on record now that I will donate the ukulele to Edmund Whitehead. In his videos and at the first UU open mic I noticed that Edmund is playing a concert OU2. This kid has mucho talent and I want to see him with a better ukulele in his hands. So if I should win Ryan can pack it up and ship it directly to Edmund, unless of course he would like me to sign it first :rolleyes::rolleyes:.

I hope I can get something put together.

If we were to somehow win announce that Jello won, she's the one that needs a new ukulele. She has my old concert ukulele, but she feels more comfortable when she plays my kala mango tenor.

Alrighty, here's my entry:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJ3r25qSTeA

Alas, the video quality decreased by quite a bit when uploaded to Youtube, so some of the small details such as the snow got kind of lost. Oh well. It was fun making the video.

My wife was doing the filming and only allowed me one take outside in the cold so it wasn't perfect.

My baby daughter broke my uke during the trip to the mall, but I guess I had it coming stuffing it under the stroller. :p

Anyway, I hope everyone had fun with their videos and let's see more entries!

same here.. kinda. I've been busy with other school projects (media school) and yea. We just started a new term without media classes haha I wont have any for 2 months. >.>;; So, it's actually good timing since there is an event I am going to film at for the contest this weekend. :)



..I wasn't procrastinating. I swear. ><;;

Ok. honestly. Who has a video ready to be posted but is waiting til the last minute to post it? I just added another criteria to the judging.

How quick you were to get your video posted.

Im getting mine this week coming, im either Monday or Tuesday... which is actually tomorrow - I think mine will be pretty cool.

Going to take it at least 3 times so i get my footage, mine can only be 1min max because mi camera can only record for 1minute.

Hope its good though - won't be cheap to get it :D

good luck everybody - im liking some of the videos.

A little tip for the judges that I just found out on Youtube (perhaps you guys already know. In that case ignore me:p). The video playback quality can be adjusted for some videos. There's an icon that looks like a monitor that allows you to change between "standard" and "high" quality. I found out that I could view my video pretty much at the same quality as it was on my computer instead of the lower quanlity I thought it was converted to when uploaded.

Maybe this would help make everyones video look clearer. It certainly did for mine.
Thanks.

^^ I've noticed that. But for some reason, I'm not able to do that. I upload the correct form but it still becomes crappy on youtube. Does it have to be a specific camera? or do I save it as a specific file?

I have no idea how you get that icon. It seems that some video have it and some don't. Mine was a WMA (I think) file and it got one of those icons.

Here's my entry. Don't laugh too much people. No time to get out to a legitimate landmark so I thought I would at least try to be a little creative and play off the "Ukulele Underground" name. Looking at the UU logo with the grass gave me the idea so I went with it.

Originally, I went on record that if I won this contest the ukulele would go to Edmund Whitehead. Well, as we all know, Edmund has received a new tenor ukulele already so if I do win I will give the ukulele to one of you here at UU. Maybe I will go back through the essays submitted to Deach or ask the staff here at UU for some input. We will cross that trench when we come to it.

Good luck to all the participants.

Very creative Dom! And great job to Nuke and Bugoy.

I as well would like to say that if I do win, I will give the uke away to a fellow UU member since Deach has already provided me one w/ the Makala.

Well here it is. I hope it's not to late though I don't expect to win. It was 32degrees and rain snow mix was coming down. I am sorry but after the 4th try I was a bit to cold and wet to play my uke for you let alone hold it out to show but you can see it is there...please forgive. Roslyn in in the Cascade Mountains.
The link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhBj3JfM-qY
By the way I forgot to mention that the Brick has a fully functioning trough at the foot of the bar. It has water that flows from one end to the other. The men(women weren't allowed in the bars at that time) in the early days of the bar used it for a urinal as well as a spittoon. Now it's used for miniature balsa wood boat races in the summer.
Lastly I want to wish all entries good luck, you all did a very good job!

I hope to finish mine this week. I know I can't edit tomorrow or this weekend. So the only day left this week is friday. gah.. i'm cutting it close.

It's not even going to be that epic as I pictured it to be. haha ><;;

Question, What is the absolute MAX time for the video? I took waaay too much footage, talked too long (well said too many "Umms" making it hella long) in my intro and got off topic with some footage, but I want to put as much of it in there.

That's me picking a few chords of Iz's 'Over the Rainbow' in the first part and then strumming it at the end. Hmmmm, guess I need to work on it more if it can't be recognized. :(

Guys, i'm sad and angry. my stupid external hard drive (that has my video project on it + everything from my laptop that i JUST backed up. o_o) broke..

I hope I can either fix it, or buy an enclosure for it before the end of the month so I can finish and turn the darn thing in..

UGH!!!!.:mad:

I lose at life, I swear.

:(:( I know exactly how that feels....

what exactly is wrong with it? the enclosure broke? Depending on the problem, i'll bet someone on the forums will know what to do. Probably Ryan would know also.

well the thing with external hard drives is that once they are broken, depending on what kinda broken that is. It might be the end of it. My cuzin had a 500gb external a year back and he had everything in it from anime probably 300 or more GBs worth, assignment, programs, etc. and then suddenly it jus broke. So he bought another enclosure for it and yeah still not working so he finally went out and bought a name brand external. I think he got a seagate.

What brand is your external?
Did you drop it?
How long do you usually keep it turned on for?

oh yeah forgot to add if u are gonna try to get another enclosure for it don't like my cuzin's story bring u down, theres still a chance that it might work.

yea, I seriously lose at life. Today I lost my school ID (I've already lost it once too.. so now I have to pay $15 to get it replaced.. and worry that someone out there might have my ID. bleh), and I also lost my little phone charm because it broke off. gah.. I keep losing and breaking things. wtf.


:(:( I know exactly how that feels....

The place where you plug in the cord for the USB broke off, I dont even know how, so I ended up going to Fry's and showing them what I had and they recommended buying an enclosure for it. Hopefully, it does the trick. But the way my luck's going, I dont know... :\

I know a lot of people here are sticklers for this, but honestly, it doesn't matter. I just consider any pronunciation of 'ukulele' correct. Technically, it's "oo ku lei lei" but I just consider any other pronunciation as accents.

I mean, if you think about it, most americans butcher any non-english word. Who cares.

haha thanks for clearing that up. I usually dont know how to say it when someone asks what it is.. I switch off, If they dont understand me when I say "oo-koo-lei-lei" I say "yoo-koo-lay-lay" in the most american accent possible haha

I remember UkuleleJunkie and Rayan talking about how about 1:40 should be good. Rayan and co. have a lot of vids to check out so make sure it isn't too long. I'd say 2 min should be fine unless you really need to keep it at 2:20..

true, i only just started calling it ookulele just a few weeks back so it still sounds a little weird for me to say it and hear it back once i've said it :D

I never thought Australians sound much different to Americans -.- In movies they sound the same to me.. i dunno why, until i saw wildboyz and they are with the aboriginals and you can tell the HUGE difference.

or the way americans pronounce jackass as Jack ass - and aussies pronounce jack arse

Yes, it was Waltzing Matilda. Pretty basic version as it was my first attempt at arranging anything for the ukulele. I actually found it easier to work it out than to play it though! Took about twenty goes, and I've still got sore fingers :)

And yes, went to Alma Park Zoo - about ten minutes from my place.

haha i was going to the zoo - takes about 2 hours to get zoo from my house, i was going to get emu's kangaroos and platapus..

But i ended up going to the city. Would have costed me to get in $66 or something :S - the zoo is over the bridge so i would have caught a ferry or a bus over.. which would have been more $

Besides i like the city, the bridge was built with just tools, no instruments on what angle to build it at or anything which i think is amazing :D they used their own minds to get the exact point to where it would meet :D

Ame, you did a fantastic job with your video. I know Ryan was dreading the job of having to pick a winner from the many deserving entries but I think this video should make his decision much easier. I thought I tapped into the "creative" side somewhat with my video but you captured all the elements of the local culture (the use of BART) and the creative side with the map and cool graphics and excellent video production with the pic in pic at the end etc. A fine job indeed. Good luck.
