- The contest will begin on September 8th and run till September 15th.

- To enter, use your Twitter account to tweet #Level26. A winner will be chosen, at random, each day and announced via Level 26s official Twitter account (www.twitter.com/Level_26) the next morning.

- Each of the 7 winners will get a Flip Cam HD Mino with exclusive footage that I will shoot that day. If you win a Flip Cam you will not be eligible to win again.

- Each tweet sent with #Level26 included will be considered an entry into that day's giveaway. You dont have to use the hashtag, but you must include Level26 in your tweet to be eligible.

F*kin RuN! - LG15Iris2009


I only had a sec to record this on my phone.. it is vital this gets to Danielbeast.

Jackson Davis LIVES!!! (ETA: But the War Continues)


After a ridiculously extensive deletion battle at Wikipedia, mostly caused by a sole editor who must still be upset that Bree was fake, the page on Jackson Davis has been SAVED! And with a warning to those who want to take down the Resistance in the future: "Advise that it should be a lengthy time before a 4th AfD is even considered."

WIKIPWNED!

Both Miles Beckett and Greg Goodfried have noticed and thanked us for our tireless efforts. Congrats to all who took on this job!

From this experience, I became aware of a group of Wikipedians who fight against the evil deletionist tendencies of Wikipedia, known as the Article Rescue Squadron. It's worth checking out if you feel like getting involved on Wikipedia. Especially when it comes time to create and defend a wikipedia page for Pharma Guy! Proof. Of notability .... is EVERYWHERE!



ETA 12:51pm PDT: Well, the war is not over apparently. The same wiki editor has now nominated Mesh Flinders for deletion. Please weigh in on that if you choose. I personally believe it does meet the requirements for notability. Now, although Miles Beckett and Greg Goodfried's articles were deleted in March 2008, that was before a lot of other notable events, including the founding of EQAL, release of Lg15:The Resistance, Harper's Globe, Paula Deen, Umbrella, etc. I believe both should merit an article now, as would EQAL. I encourage anyone who wants to start those articles to do so--LGPedia would be a good start -- don't wholesale copy, just reword, paraphrase, etc., and dig up citations whenever you can to ward off the Deletionists. -- cheers, milo

Heading over to EQAL for a Top Secret meeting.

Level 26: Early Adopters Contest


Posted by Anthony E. Zuiker

"I want to see if we can get a few more early adopters signed up to the website in the final five days leading up to the release. This contest is very simple: get as many of your friends as you can to create a profile on Level26.com. To prove that they were referred by you, and for you to get credit, they need to post this phrase: “YOUR NAME made me a Level 26er” to the comments section below, or in the Level 26: Early Adopters Contest Forum.

The three 26ers who can get the most new people to register before Tuesday will get an autographed copy of the book, a Marc Ecko Level 26 t-shirt signed by me and a Swiss Army computer bag with the logo of my production company, Dare to Pass."

Greg answers your questions:

Greg said...

1) 18 and older rule. We are going to keep that rule as is. We really aren't comfortable with minors submitting and then having to work with their parent/guardian and verify that it is actually their parent or guardian. Sorry to those under 18, but this is the only we can do this.

2)OpAphid, like any other character, is fair game and can be expanded on based on the producer's desire.

3) Need to look into the IRS issue. My assumption is that the $5,000 will go to production costs for the producer and that it won't be taxable as income. I'm not a tax expert so I need to look into this.

4) Yes, we will take the video from the LG15 YouTube channel and embed it on the lonelygirl15 and Resistance channel pages. We will not be uploading the videos directly to either channel. Yes, we can send out myspace bulletins. Good suggestion. Please remind me if we happen to forget to do it, but that is a very good suggestion.

5) We will be acquiring the rights so the producer cannot submit the show places without our consent. But please note that we are doing TSIY2 to showcase talent so if the producer wants to submit their content to a festival we will be supportive. We will just want to make sure the submission is clear and doesn't confuse the LG15: TSIY2 submission with lonelygirl15.

6)I went to wikipedia and read through everything. that is great! I'm sure Jackson really appreciates it! Miles and I don't have pages, our names auto refer to lonelygirl15. Oh well, one can only dream :) Also, the grease monkey link fix is very cool. We know this community is talented, resourceful, and passionate and we hope TSIY2 is a step in the right direction showing you how much we appreciate it.

See the original post containing the original questions: http://lg15today.blogspot.com/2009/08/lg15-show-is-yours-2.html

NOTE: If anyone has more questions it might be a good idea to keep them all on the original thread:

Web.Files Number 9 with MYMHM

On episode nine of the Web.Files, the lovely and talented Kristyn Burtt interviews the hosts of Movies You May Have Missed. She also appears as a special guest host on the latest episode of MYMHM, where they review and discuss her movie choice, the 1945 class Mildred Pierce staring Joan Crawford.

Movies You May Have Missed covers movies which you may have missed, I guess everything you need to know is right there in the title. The two hosts are Juan Carlos Bagnell, the black-and-white classic movie snob, and Lee Buckley, the snarky normal one. MYMHM is not your typical movie review show, the analysis airs towards the erudite and at times they seem to over analyze things; however, if you enjoy movies beyond the latest Michael Bay explode-o-fest the show is definitely worth checking out.

LG15: THE SHOW IS YOURS 2

From: http://inside.lg15.com/2009/08/31/lg15-the-show-is-yours-2/

Submit Your Pilot!

After the incredible creativity and hard work from the producers of LG15: The Last, we are excited to announce LG15: TSIY2. This is your chance to make the next LG15 series! Submit your ORIGINAL LG15 PILOT and get the chance to see your show be the featured content on LG15.com.

We have listened to the feedback from the community and looked back at the first TSIY and made some changes that we think will make TSIY2 even more successful and rewarding for both the producer of the chosen series and the community.

Sorry about the formal nature of the below, but we want to be very clear and precise about TSIY2. So here you go:

Submitting Your Pilot

Anyone may submit a pilot for TSIY2. The pilots must be submitted between October 1, 2009 and October 15, 2009. Entries will be closed at 11:59 pm PST on October 15, 2009.

If the submission comes from more than one person, the team must appoint one person that will be the point person for the pilot (”Point Person” “You” “Your”). The Point Person must be over the age of 18 and legally able to enter into contracts.

The pilot must be derivative of the LG15 Universe by building upon the mythology of lonelygirl15, KateModern, LG15: The Resistance, LG15: The Last, and OpAphid. For more information on LG15, please read the LGPedia, the #1 resource on all things LG15.

The pilot can either be Episode One of your proposed show or a Pilot Presentation, which gives a general idea of the look and feel of the proposed show. It must be no more than 5 minutes in length.

Upload Your video to YouTube and send the link with Your social show treatment to [email protected] All pilots will be showcased on LG15.com and Inside LG15.

As part of Your pilot treatment, You must list the names of all people entitled to “Created By” and “Executive Producer” credit of Your pilot.

All video submissions must also include an 8-week social show treatment that outlines Your story, characters, and interactivity. Your treatment must incorporate all aspects of a social show. A social show is an experience on a website where a community participates in a specific entertainment property by viewing and discussing videos and other multimedia content, and by interacting with the characters through profile pages, commenting, and chat.

All submitted pilots will be covered by our Terms of Service.

The selected pilot will be announced on October 30, 2009.

If Your Pilot is Chosen:

If Your pilot is chosen to become TSIY2, it will become part of the LG15 canon. You will be required to create one piece of content each day, Monday through Friday. You will be required to produce at least 2 videos per week, plus additional content such as pictures, text blogs, and interactivity.

Prior to announcing the selected pilot, EQAL will reach out to the Point Person and inform them that they have been selected.

The Point Person will then enter into a contract with EQAL whereby EQAL will acquire the rights to Your show. The contract will be a standard contract with the following terms:

You will be paid $5,000 for the rights to your show and to deliver the required materials.
Once receiving the $5,000 you are responsible for producing the 8 week social show and for all costs of production associated with the production of Your show.
All people listed as “Creators” and “Executive Producers” on the pilot submission will receive “Created by” and “Executive Producer” credit in the LGPedia.
You will receive 50% of the net profits from all proceeds from the Your show.
You must have name/likeness releases for all people appearing in your show and the rights to use all music in your show.
You will deliver the first week of content to EQAL on January 4, 2010 and your show will start airing on January 11, 2010.
You will be required to deliver each week’s content every Monday thereafter (e.g. Week 2 is due on January 11, 2010).
Your show will be distributed on the LG15 YouTube account and on a custom show page subdomain of LG15.com (e.g. LG15.com/yourshow)

Marketing Your Show and Other Info.:

EQAL will market Your show by posting it to the LG15 YouTube account, showcasing each new video on the lonelygirl15 YouTube channel video player and the LG15: The Resistance YouTube channel, and sending out tweets when each new video is posted from the LG15 twitter account.

An EQAL producer may consult with you and your production team and review scripts and videos to ensure that your story is consistent with the LG15 Universe and uploaded in a timely manner for the benefit of the community.

Glenn Rubenstein, creator of OpAphid, will provide a vocal cameo as “Brother,” and/or assistance with effects and/or editing for 2-3 minutes of Tachyon-style footage if You should choose to include these characters in Your series. Glenn may provide other help and/or assets to the winner at his sole discretion.

Good Luck! We look forward to watching everyone’s pilots and seeing what the LG15 Community will do with the Breeniverse.

Greg said...
We can do a live chat if that would be helpful. To be honest, I feel that people are more comfortable asking questions here. Let's start with leaving questions here and I will do my best to answer all of them. If we feel that a live chat will be more helpful, I will do that after.

Lucy had a baby recently so I'm not sure she's into kicking butt and taking names . . . at this point.
