Same here. My apologies.

Don't worry about it haha. It's fine. If it bothered me I wouldn't have shown anyone.

Content wise, it was quite funny.

Thanks.

The end music made it kind of weird. I would prefer if maybe you talked to yourself about how you're doing well in school (Good job) and that you're talented, but the PC is the only thing keeping you from reaching prime success. Other than that, great video!

That felt a bit generic. I watched 6 past winners & majority do that. I thought it would be boring for me to be sitting staring into the camera saying "This is the processor I have. This is the GPU I have. I want to win because I like fortnite. My computer is not good at playing fortnite. I would like to play fortnite at a better frame rate. Please help me play fortnite."

 

Less is more.

Don’t take any of my posts seriously.

Agreed. Don't wanna go too hard into the E-beg...

A loooong time lurker first time poster. I've been watching LTT for over 6 years now and never really tried to enter any of the contests. This is my first time using adobe premiere and actually entering a contest (in some 15 years or so). Even if it doesn't win I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts !

It was well edited. Microphone seemed to be peaking a lot, but you probably didn't have much control since I'm guessing it was a gaming headset. Depending on what phone you have, you might be able to get better sound with that if you record in a little blanket fort and just transfer the file to your computer.

 

The shot of blowing dust off the GPU hit close to home...

I thought this thread closed???? I guess not.

Edit: It was a personal thread that closed, it was about the time when winners are picked.

I'm liking a lot of the videos here! I don't want to feel like my video is better but at the same time I'd rather not have the mindset of "I'm going to lose." I think I have a serious shot at winning and so do many of you!

I enjoy the general positivity here in comparison to the comments on YouTube. Some people are just plain nasty, even to the younger competitors and it irks me. Look, I get it, there are some cringey videos, but being nasty doesn't help your chances, and you may be discouraging some of the younger people from pursuing similar creative endeavors. All things considered, no one NEEDS a gaming PC, it's just awesome to have this opportunity and people should just have fun with it.

NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!
Although the cards are not on the market, Linus' video today has a TUF rtx 3080! This means that not only can he get the cards early, but because he has one now basically guarantees that the Rig Reboot winners are getting these cards. (being asus tuf or rog 3080s)

I'm pretty sure winners will be emailed eventually, but that could take some time. 3,400 entries is 50+ hours of videos they need to watch. Whittle it down to a top 20 or so, and then a top 3. Could be a couple weeks.

I was lucky it was on clearance at a best buy in a small town in the middle of no were I had to open a credit card with them just to take up the chance. That's the only new thing in my computer I was able to get it in January, but it's starting to show age, also when video doing video editing and audio production its not cutting it and my system freezes or crashes 90% of the time makes it hard to do anything for my production classes exsheshaly now with covid :(

I saw a lot of people posting their videos for constructive criticism, so at the risk of being called out for entering with an already decent pc, here's my entry:

I think my main issues are my script and general editing issues like audio...

I'd kill for an rx460... According to UserBenchmark, it's 300% better than what I have now.

 

I mean, I've been planning to build a new computer, but I've decided to wait until November for multiple reasons.

 

1) I'll know the results of this contest by then.

2) AMD will have launched it's Zen 3 by then, so Zen 2 should be cheaper.

3) Black Friday

 

Just goes to show, some contestants have better PC's, some have worse... It comes down to execution on the videos.

Obligatory "this is my video" post. 300 word script in the first 54 seconds, so about 5.5 words per second.

 

 

1) I know it's meme-ish

2) The brass instruments towards the end cover some of my VO

3) Could have had better B-Roll instead of stock images, but I'm talking so fast that video cuts might be even more jarring.

I like the premise! I have that same HP Envy 700-214 actually, it's barely alive by a thread. I know the pain of long ass boots.

Close. HP Envy H8-1534 as is with no upgrades. But yeah, we're both 7+ years behind.

And like you said in your video, you didn't do a generic commercial or rig showcase. I think 2 years ago, one of the winners did a rap, which caused a lot of people last year to do rap videos, none of which won. 

 

Last years winners really pushed the infomercial which you are seeing a lot of this year.

This year has been SO MANY INFOMERCIALS, which means a lot of entries aren't going to win. If an infomercial wins this year I will be very dissapointed.
