LAUGH OUT LOUD (LOL): GaijinPot's Online Comedy Film Festival
GaijinPot is proud to announce the call for submissions for our first
Online Comedy Film Festival: LOL (Laugh Out Loud).
The 3 month festival (October - December) is sponsored by Vodafone
and supported by the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan, GPlus
Media, the Australian Embassy: Australian Arts Festival Japan 2003,
The Foreign Buyers' Club, The Mansions, 100 Meter Films, Sakura House
and Club Tocoo.
Entries are to be 60 seconds or less in duration and somehow include
the spoken word "Sumimasen" or the written letters "LOL" - so we know
the video was made for our festival.
Samples of videos submitted almost 10 years ago (courtesy of
Japanzine magazine - formally The Alien) are viewable online and
should give you a sense of what we're looking for; comic insight to
the "Japan experience". http://www.gaijinpot.com/lol/
The first 10 entries will receive movie ticket prizes and also go
into a draw for a trip (in Japan) for 2, courtesy of Club Tocoo! The
Mansions, an exclusive serviced apartment in Tokyo's Roppongi
district, will give away a free stay coupon to the funniest video
submitted in October.
One of the other great incentives to join the LOL festival is the
level of exposure your masterpiece will receive. We will be promoting
the festival online (through GaijinPot.com & its affiliate sites), in
print (nationwide - Japan) and to the Japanese media. It's a great
opportunity to flex your creative muscles and be noticed.
All entries should be submitted on Mini-DV or VHS (NTSC format). We
will take care of the compression to make them internet capable.
Videos will be uploaded as soon as they arrive at LOL headquarters so
send them in asap to get maximum exposure. Entries received after
December 15th, 2003 won't be accepted.
Send in as many entries as you like from anywhere in the world but
remember the theme: comic insight to the "Japan experience". Each
entry must be accompanied by an entry form and submitted on a
separate tape. Videos may be rejected on grounds of suitability for a
Yeah, The GP admin banned me.
They deleted all my threads.
And now they make fun of me about that LOL ****!
I was so frigging pissed!!!
I have another tidbit to add... while I was surfing... I noticed Blah
He was posting every so often on another board... as a very normal poster!
Made me wonder what they did to him to make him so angry at GP.
Life goes on...
Westsan, are you back in incognito mode? If so, wouldn't it have been better to put some more modification on your original name, like an anagram or something.
If you add 2 letters to westsan, you can rearrange it to say "Nasty stew"
Now that, would be undercover.
But for what it's worth, welcome back.
PS: After pondering the anagram for a sec, I checked if there was a net-based anagram solver, and there is, and it came up with some absolute gems, such as "ass newt was sent and wet sans". Sorry, but that's pretty funny. I checked mine too, and got "od bulge and dog lube", a substance which might just be enough to get me banned as well.
