Q: Is the deadline for submitting works for the first screening “midnight from Sept 23rd to 24th” or “midnight from Sept 24th to Sept 25th”?
The deadline is midnight from Sept 24th to Sept 25th. The specific deadline is Sept 24th 23:59:59 (Japan time), so please submit your work by then.

Q: Are there any cases where my work won’t be accepted?
We may judge the following contents not suitable for screening and may not ac-cept them. Please also double confirm the “Notes on application” described inthe work application guidelines.
*The “resolution” below corresponds to the final data delivery

  • Ignoring the template or incorrect resolution.
  • If the video has a strong religious and political message
  • If the video has bloody context
  • If the video makes the audience uncomfortable
  • If the video is a promotion video for personal or corporate
  • Other things that are not considered to be established as a work

Please note that works judged to fall under these categories will be excludedfrom the screening and will not be screened or recorded at the venue.

Q: How can I get a 2D & 3D format that can be used for production?

There will be automated email reply when you apply for the competition which gives you info on how to download the template.
It is quite common that applicants accidentally registered with a mistake in their email address ( such as missing a character etc.) which causes the mail to not be delivered properly.
In that case, please contact us.

Q: Is there any part in the template that isn’t actually projected?

The part inside the yellow frame will not be projected. All the other places will be projected so please use them in your content creation

Q: Will the image appear clearly on the parts that are marked in green? And will the shadow of the building affect the animation?

A: Regarding the shadow, as we are using multiple projectors to project each relevant part from multiple positions, we plan to make sure that the shadows of the building do not appear as much as possible. Although, because of the shadow, if the audience watch it from the side, they might not be able to see some parts. If it is viewed from the front, it will be fine.

Regarding the center of the building, since it will be projected from the front (from a long distance), it will be projected to some extent. However, the projected part will be quite at the back which will affect the quality of the projection. For the other parts, they are made of materials and color (dark color) that will make it difficult to project image properly as well. Therefore, the quality of the image that is projected on those part will be reduced. Please understand that these area are not suitable for severe expression when you are creating your video as the image projected on these area will not be as clear.

Q: How should I download the template data from the download link?

Please download by referring to the image below.

Q: In the description, the first selection is a full HD submission. However, is it possible to explain the concept content in the form of a reel?

For the first selection, not only the concept but the projection mapping elements and production skills will be evaluated, so please submit the actual projected content in full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixel)

Q: There is a statement that the “voice data of the team name and title name” is to be submitted, but how should I send it?

The pronunciation of team name and title in English is used as a reference. It can be done with a simple recording using a smartphone etc. Therefore, please record how you actually pronounce it. Please attach it in a format of with a mp3 or wav.

Q: What format should I send the video data in?

For the first screening, since it is a full HD, light data such h264/mp4/mov is desirable. Regarding the final submission data, please make sure that it is rendered in a format such as photo jpeg, HAP, ProRes, h265 etc. with a resolution of 6656 x 1920 pixel before submitting. Eventually, the management will convert it to a format that is optimized for projection.
In addition, if you can send a scaled image equivalent to full HD for previewing purposes at the same time, it helps the management to confirm things in a much smoother manner.

Q: Since the resolution of the format is relatively large, it is difficult to proceed. What would be a better way?

Since the submission of the first video screening is in fullHD, you can for example, reduce the resolution of the 3d format to fullHD before starting to create your work (the same applies to 2D). We will leave the work method to you but as long as you submit a video in fullHD where the content is understandable, there wouldn’t be a problem.
