 Tis a new year, and the Kickoff is coming so I figure I would put out a reminder to all:

Starting with the 2010 Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kick
Off, we will be hosting a new video program! Every year people come up and ask
if they can show their PCT video creation on the famous Tyvek screen.
Unfortunately they usually have to be turned away due to the time available.  This upcoming year we will spend part of
an evening showing videos that the PCT community submitted. With this new video
program more people will get to show off their videos to the hundreds of
PCT’ers that show up every year at the kick-off. 
We are looking for short videos related to the PCT that are
5 to 7 minutes long. We will accept up to 12 videos. We are not looking for
videos that only consist of scenic photos randomly thrown together- we are
looking for videos that have story- videos that show that the video creator has
something to say. The video could be funny, painful, uplifting. It could offer
a vignette into a particular aspect of hiking the trail; it could explore a
particular place or person; it could explore a particular incident or event—but
the most important requirement is that it relates to the PCT. Also, keep in
mind that children will be present at the kick-off screening. 
Videos must be submitted by April 15th so it can
be received in time for the April 23rd and 24th 2010 kick-off.
Videos should be burned to a NTSC DVD Disk. I-Movie, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut
Pro and Windows Movie Maker all can do this for you. It can be in widescreen
16x9 or 4x3 aspect ratio. The total running time and the video-makers contact
information should be written on the disk. The selection of videos to be shown is per the discretion of ProDeal, Weathercarrot and Freefall. Those not shown may be retained for future use or discarded.  No DVD's will be returned. No video will be used for any other use
without the permission of the video creator.
Disks should be mailed to:

We are looking forward to watching your amazing creations!
