Editing is not the only time consuming aspect of a montage.

My M2 took WAY over 6 months of constant and steady communication, capping, staging angles, scrapping, re-doing, trying shit out etc. etc. And Exus is the kind of guy who can mask something out for 300 frames straight without getting a brain hemorrhage. Nonetheless, I think this applies to a lot of editors. There's a lot more to look at than just the editing if you want to make a memorable video.

It's so good to see another contest. I'm definitely willing to donate to the prize money pot somewhere in the future. Also, I'd like to apply as a judge. I've learnt a whole lot about reviewing and criticizing all sorts of media (mostly games) at my current job. I think I could do very well. I can go into detail if you guys happen to be interested.

For two, regardless of how quickly you edit, if the deadline was moved up to say, the end of October, there's no way someone wouldn't have enough time to finish their video, especially since it's summer time now. I can't think of any video that someone actually spent over 6 months editing consistently. The only time that is the case is if someone is just super lazy and disinterested in their video to begin with. For 3, as someone else pointed out, when you have a deadline that far away, people are going to lose interest and videos released in two months will have far less of a chance than videos made in 6 months because the first videos to come out will be gradually forgotten about as more and more videos come out.

I really wish you guys would reconsider your position. I mean seriously, if someone can't put together the kind of video they want to enter between now, and say October 31st, 5 1/2 months from now, their entry really isn't necessary. I mean heck, maybe even have a poll. October 31st vs December 31st. See what the response is. It couldn't hurt.
I am just going to ramble here, but, not everyone has all the free time in the world. what if someone sees this thread, has absolutely no gameplay, or editor, or idea of what they want to do, if they have until december they have PLENTY of time to map everything out and do everything exactly how they want it. people who release videos now instead of later will get plenty of shine when the voting threads are made, they won't be forgotten, but rather, they will be enjoyed longer. you're also forgetting how long it takes some people to capture the kind of clips they want. not everyone can spend a month playing and have the 30 clips they want for an 8 minute video. the more time between now and the deadline the better. this insures nobody has to rush to do any of the following:

collect gameplay, capture the gameplay, capture angles, select songs, select overall themes/find editor(s), get the clips to said editor/edit them themselves, and not to mention the editor(s) might not have all the time in the world. the right editor for a certain player might not have but a few hours a week to work on a halo video. this is where time is crucial to both the editor and the player. what if the player wants to start over, new song, new angles, and everything? the long deadline insures that each player and editor can release exactly the video they wish to make.

It takes a significant amount of time (more than 5 1/2 months) to create a competitive worthy video ESPECIALLY when starting from scratch, gameplay and editing wise. 7 1/2 months is definitely a more reasonable goal.

Before posting this, you should've asked yourself the same question. Would your final be finished by October 31st if the deadline was pushed back? I didn't think so buddy...
Nice avatar man, wonder where you got that from

Glad to see people supporting the longer deadline, i have no idea why someone would like to opt for a shorter deadline. From a personal point of view, i pretty much need the longer deadline, i have a project in mind but i only have about 5 clips good enough for it at the moment (hitmonlee has a solid 15-20 but it's not really a dualtage if the gameplay's 90% his 10% mine) so i'll need to be playing a fuckton in summer and then start editing. Looking forward to this though, hopefully we'll see some awesome content being released over the next 7 months

I'm going to donate at some point. I should probably warn you all though, I'm probably going to be making my donation back.
