View Full Version : Video Submission Call for the 2010 Kick-off

Hello fellow PCT’ers!

The hiking season if over and the long nights of winter are beginning to set in. Now is the perfect time to re-live the trail by going though your videos and photos of the PCT. Here is yet another reason:

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. Those not shown may be retained for future use or discarded. No video disks will be returned. No video will be used for any other use without the permission of the author.

Disks should be mailed to:

We are looking forward to watching your amazing creations!
