adModelling
About
adModelling (ADM) focuses on commercial advertising and commercials. In
this competition, we are looking for a new face for adModelling, and for
someone to represent our agency. We're searching, mainly, for a girl with
edge, a girl who can act, and a girl who has an appealing warmth.

Most rounds will consist of your sim doing a print ad for the client, and some
will be actual commercials, therefore you will be making a video, just to let
people applying know (yes, I will make an example so you know what I am
looking for.) If you're looking for a good video editor, try Sony Vegas (just
google it) they offer free 30 day trials, or use Movie Maker, which will do fine
as well.


http://img160.imageshack.us/img160/1973/rulesbb7.gif
1. Read and follow all S2C forum rules on picture posting
2. Adult, female sims only (for now)
3. You may enter a maximum of two sims, however only one will
continue to Round One. Previously used sims are allowed
4. Humans are preferred, but I don't mind pixies, vampires, etc. as long as
they aren't too intense
5. Photoshopping is needed
6. Be nice towards others
7. No Simmerizing (putting your sim onto a human body)
8. Use your own sims only
9. Add a title to your enteries

ADM works in eliminations and there will be collabrative rounds (meaning you
will have to work in assigned groups.) Another thing, for every round there
will be a winner, and that winner wins immunity for the next round, (that
doesn't necessarily mean you can slack off though.) That's about it :)

Please PM me, if you're intrested in becoming a judge.
You don't need to have won a contest or anything, however you should have
some experience in being a part of competitions.

Judges: 1. Luvyuyu
2. ~Charlotte~
3. Wanabee_gangsta_013

In any emergencies, I'll take over judging.


http://img119.imageshack.us/img119/1483/applyuc6.gif
Applications will be held until there are at least 10 participents, possibly
more, if there will be more applying. Eliminations are decided based on number
of contestants. To apply you will need to enter two photos...

Name:
Age:
Location:
Video: (Yes/No)

1. A black and white headshot, on a plain background
2. A color bodyshot (there is no need to simpose or anything like that, just a
plain pose is fine) on a plain background


http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/5105/prizeslh8.jpg
1. An icon for participation, and an icon for those who make the final three
2. The winner will recieve a chance to appear on the hit show Downtown (http://downtown.cabanova.com/) for
season four! There are some conditions, the skintone of the model will have
to be changed to the default maxis skintone (this a prefrence to the maker,
miboy1991, hopefully everyone will respect it.)


If anyone has any questions feel free to ask here or PM me. :)

This looks cute! I'm waiting to see who your judges are. I hope it's not the same judges that judge over and over again! :blink:

EDIT: We have to make a video? Now that I can't do :anime:

bananawrench
26th Jan 2008, 8:31 AM
Thanks =). If I can't get enough people because people can't make the video, then I will definetly take that off.

Banana, why don't you add to your App form so it looks like:


Name:
Age:
Location:
Video: Yes/No.

So that you can still get your contestants, but if most your participants put No for the video, take it down, and if most put Yes, leave it be?
Or you could have the contestants make an animated photo instead, like on gickr. :)

I think that the video is a great and unique idea, but most people don't have the option.

Yes you both can apply, just make sure to choose the "No" option for videos.

bananawrench
27th Jan 2008, 3:16 AM
I would give you an example, it's a commercial type film. It'd be pretty short, I'd also give some tips to those who have never made videos. I was sort of hoping to introduce some people into video making, but some people are too limited to do it, which is fine, in that case I won't have it. So don't worry about it if you can't do it. It won't lose you points or anything.

RainbowCyberGoth, those who want to do the video can do it, I've decided for one round that you will have an option, do a picture, or a video. As for talking videos, it's all up to you =)

Dreea there are some people who have applied twice and one of their applications will have to be eliminated, so you'll have to wait sorry =( Don't worry though, we have enough applicants so we'll get started soon. =D

I have had to re do my application as I had a clear out of my game and deleted the hood that contained my girl. So I had to re do her the best I could. she was created in bodyshop, the when I go in game a few tweaks here and there are done. So yes she is a bit different, but terribly so. Hope this is okay.

banana, was there something else we had to judge? I got your first pm or are you waiting on other judges?

No, just not all of the judges have replied, so I'm waiting for their reply. If the judge doesn't reply, I'll just step in and do it for them. So round one will be posted within a couple of hours tops. (it's a tie-breaker between the other two judges so I need the third one to make the vote.)

Avatars are beautiful!! And round one is really interessant!!
1 question: What logo should we use for the lenses ad?

3rd Feb 2008, 8:51 AM
Sorry about that, I put the Acuvue logo back up. I didn't notice I removed it. Glad you guys like it =P. I forgot to mention some things for round one, I'll just mention them now. Don't forget about shadows, wind, and out of focus objects when you edit your photos. As well as that there will be winner for round one (as well as all of the other rounds) that will get a handicap for the next round, and that two people will be eliminated for round one. Hopefully that's it =D.

Sorry another question: So in lenses ad we should put in the photo the ... erm... box (i hope it called so) of lenses?

bananawrench
3rd Feb 2008, 9:21 AM
Don't worry, ask away =P but yeah, sorry it's so big, I'll resize it ASAP (having photoshop issues) you can use the box, but really it's up to you, if you can find the logo (I was unsuccessful) then go ahead and use it, or better yet, make your own, using the box is another option.

By the way, the box and the other logo are allready cut out for you, if you save them onto your computer and then open them in photoshop, they will be cut out. Just so people know.

Another question...

For the Palmolive ad, is it necessary for our models to be actually washing dishes? I was thinking of taking a different angle on the ad - is that okay?

(banana, I can PM with the specifics of what I'm thinking of doing, if you want)

J_mint
3rd Feb 2008, 7:52 PM
Turtle, I think she should be "near" the dishes, cause this is a dish soap ad.
But this is my thinks. Wait banana's answer

3rd Feb 2008, 8:13 PM
LOl, I had kind of a different spin on it too. More of a sexy image (I know I know, because when you think sexy, you think Palmolive XD). But she will be near the dishwasher I can tell you that.

3rd Feb 2008, 11:01 PM
For the palmolive ad, like I mentioned, it's really all up to you, you just have to make sure your actually advertising it, like don't have your girl sitting on a horse or something and call it a palmolive ad. Mint, you're doing it right, it looks great! You too Dreea! =D

@Luvyuyu -- I would usually save them as .png but it doesnt allow them on here for some reason, and saving them as gif is just a force of habit for some reason. When I posted them I thought to myself "hmm, I'm gonna have to save these again at some point with better colours". If it's noticable enough for someone to point it out, I will do :)

How long will Round One be open? I don't know if I'll be able to finish my entry before the weekend. I have my contacts ad done, but not the Palmolive one. If I'm holding things up (or worse - if I'm courting disqualification!) please let me know and I'll make sure I get it in.

I can keep it open as far as tuesday, but I really want to get round one going, round two, three, and up will offer much more time, as they will expect more quality and effort. I don't think you really need to impress the judges so much now (not to say that you should do a half-ass job) but as to later, to show your true potential.

I forgot to mention this, if you're not available, or just don't feel that this contest is for you and thought it was something else, it's fine just post it here that you won't continue, so that I know.

*Sigh* The judges always hate my photos. I'm off to do Round Two, then.

I can see why you might be disappointed, sometimes I do an entry, think it'll get a great, maybe even top score, and then find that I did "ok" or average, and feel like crap. You have to realize though, and this is accountable for everywhere in life not just in sim contests, that the judges job is to mark subjectively WITHOUT any bias, to see fit that the photos match what the contest is demanding, if you aren't getting a good mark, you're simply not meeting the demand, look at the higher marks (not just the winner that will be too narrow) and judge on how you should do from that. So don't see it so personally, it will probably lead to your downfall.

*This is a general note to everyone, as the judges didn't post comments this round (I didn't ask that they did) if you want to get a good look at how you can improve, look at the high and low scores, it should give you a good idea of what each judge looks at and sees fit for the contest, again it's not their personal view but rather their view on what this contest is demanding, and I correctly (hopefully) touched up on what I am looking for, in any case, I will remind them each time.

Thank you Spiffyriffic for your compliment on my picture.
bananawrench any chance you could put up round three before the judges results are in? This would give us a chance to get the creative thoughts going, and prepare a but for it. Even if an elimination happens it would give us a head start.

By my quick calculations, it looks like we're still waiting for a perfume ad from Slice (Dolly Dangerfield), and both ads from MILK (Isabel Farrow) and RainbowCyberGoth (Saira Fox). Right?

Banana - are we still waiting? I'm starting to worry about if I'll have enough time to complete Round 3.

bananawrench
20th Feb 2008, 11:37 PM
RainbowCyberGoth has dropped out, and MILK, I haven't heard from at all, we're only waiting on Slice, there will be three eliminations this time. I'm also afraid J_Mint is right, we only have time for three rounds, so the next round is the last (I'm really sorry) Round Two, technically speaking is still going.

I'm not going to post round three yet, because now the time is extended, I also don't want to make anyone feel bad if they start on round three but then have to scrap it due to their elimination.

banana...maybe if you ask bP for an extension you will have enough time for 4 rounds. The winner of a contest with only 3 rounds will not recieve a star and that is frustrating...

J_mint
21st Feb 2008, 4:27 PM
Yes... But I think BP should give us at THE LEAST 1 week for doing the 4th round. And I dunno if he's done it in the past... but I hope that. I really want receive a star!!!
Btw, has Slice asked you an extension, Banana? If not I think we shouldn't wait for her/his, she/he's not polite. But if she/he asks you an ext, sorry Slice, and don't count me, Banana.

Hey banana.

I'm not sure what your plans are for Round 3, but since the other rounds have had 2 components, I assume that's the plan for Round 3 as well. Would it be feasible to split the two into Round 3 and Round 4? If we're quick, we should still be able to get 2 rounds in before March 1. If we don't have two ads to do, I would think we'd all be able to get our submissions in more quickly.

Does this make sense?

slice_SC
23rd Feb 2008, 3:16 AM
I agree. For round 2 I had my Levi's ad within a day or two of the round being posted, but my perfume ad didn't get done until longer.

23rd Feb 2008, 2:21 PM

momto2
23rd Feb 2008, 6:29 PM
What has happened to this contest??? Seems like a lot of waiting when we could have been working on rounds and should have been able to get in four rounds. The original cut-off for this round I think was 2-19. Even giving 24 hours for an extension we should have been a lot farther along by now.

I'm not trying to upset anyone but it's frustrating when you put forth effort and try to meet deadlines (and I've been given my share of extensions) and then - nothing.

Spiffyriffic
23rd Feb 2008, 6:47 PM
I am not meaning to offend, but I have competed in a few contests before, even ran a few, and this one was just NOT organized well. Rounds shouldn't last longer than 5 days, then give about 2 days for judging. Only one 24 hour extension should be granted. If people don't finish in 5 day(which IS a long time) then it's tough cookies. This contest just wasn't managed very well, and I feel bad for those who were hoping to get a star out of this contest, because now it definitely won't be possible. You need to keep to the deadlines and create a proper timeline for your contest in order for the contestants to feel it is actually worth while. Sorry.

Dreea
23rd Feb 2008, 7:48 PM
I'm sorry...this is just not what I've expected...I know real life comes first, but I really think that this contest has not been organized well.

slice_SC
23rd Feb 2008, 8:11 PM
Maybe it's just me, but it seems a little shallow that you'd only want to compete in a contest to get little 20 pixel star underneath your username. You should compete because you like the challenge and want to be a part of the contest.

I'm sorry that I held up the contest for two days past the round 2 deadline, but I don't think it's fair to berate the host of the contest. She obviously spent time putting this together.

Spiffyriffic
23rd Feb 2008, 8:26 PM
Oh no, that's not what I was trying to do at all. I didn't really want a little star, I earned it quite a while ago, though I know that some people really want that. The only reason I join contests is to actually get inspiration for making sim pictures. I just feel that if you can't run a contest in the alloted time and have it organized properly, at least let the contestants know that things are going on in real life that won't allow you to spend a lot of time on the contest, or let someone else take over for you. It's just, I know running a contest is hard, but it needs to have some type of structure and organization, or else people like me feel unmotivated to even continue on with something that isn't being managed properly. As for giving out extensions, I just think it confusing for people hearing that a round was going to end 4 days ago, and we've kinda been just hanging around in limbo for those four days, wondering what's going on. It makes me wonder if this contest is still running, or if it just died out, like some contests have done before...

I apologize if I had offended you Slice, or Bannanawrench. I wasn't trying to sound ungrateful, I was just trying to relay some things that BoolPropped has said, in keeping with the timelines and the structure of eliminations and such...

momto2
23rd Feb 2008, 9:00 PM
Sorry if I offended you Slice; that certainly was not my intention. Participating in these contests is not about getting that 20 pixel little star but it is about participating in as many rounds as possible to gain experience and having a host that is actively involved in the contest which all adds up to making it a fun experience.

Real life can get in the way of all of us which is why extensions are sometimes given. If a host has issues come up that prevents him/her from following through in a timely manner then I would hope he/she would find a suitable replacement so the contest can continue.

There have been so many contests that have not attracted enough entries to proceed that I hate to see one where there are interested people not working out.

Slice, your levi's ad was perfect, but the quality of the perfume ad brought it down, which was why your marks dropped so low. However you should be proud of your levis ad, it got top marks, you were probably too rushed on the perfume ad, is what happened...

Thanks for the scores and I didn't want to offend anybody. I don't really want a star (ok, I want one, but not that badly). I like to join contests because I can work in photoshop and expose my creativity. Nice round. I hope that doing a movie will not be scored higher than doing an ad and I really hope there will be one more round.

bananawrench
23rd Feb 2008, 9:33 PM
I'm really sorry to all of you, for all the havoc, I've PMed boolpropped about an extention, hopefully we'll get it (just by a day, not too much.) I'm sure we can fit a forth round in ;) And sorry to those eliminated, you guys did a great job, I would keep you all in if I could.

Anyway, here are some notes for those who want to do a trailer, but have never done filming:
This is a great site to look at: http://www.britannicadreams.com/movietips/
Some general things:
feel free to upload it wherever you like (youtube, veoh, etc.)
judging will be much lighter for a trailer than a poster/banner however the score is still the same (not higher or lower)
if you need any help, feel free to PM me or ask for some on here, I have done a couple of sim films, and would be glad to help
a good video editing device to install would be Sony Vegas, and they offer free 30-day trials, just google it to find one
It only needs to be two minutes long, you can make it longer, but that is all that is required

Hi all,
I was surprised by my scores, considering the terrible spelling mistakes.
So with this next task, for the movie trailer, any indication of the length. I was thinking along the lines of max two minutes. This was the reason I entered this contest, was the movie bit. Just never had the courage to upload something, and this could be the shove out the door I need.
For sometime I have been watching now an love them and indeed it was the britannicdream girls that got me in to all this side of sims. Belive me their stuff is so good.

Comment: I think with your photos the main thing you can improve is the
quality, however as far as I can see people love your photos, so you’re
obviously in no dire need of improvement, I would say just keep doing how
you’re doing and you’ll be great. Let the experience shape you.
