Video Killed the Stiff Arm Shot
by: Alan Peak , Colorado4/8/2012
I have fallen in love with video. I use a couple of GoPro's. For this challenge you can use any camera you would like, but it has to be digital and it should be uploaded on Youtube.com or Vimeo.com.
It will not matter if you catch a giant brown, huge walleye or 3'' bluegill. It will not matter if you have underwater footage or aerial views. Fly, spin, bait, lure or jugs, it does not matter. No time limit for your video. I want to see your adventure.
Post your video on the forum with the title, "My Video" and give a quick description in the body of the post, as well as the link to your video on Youtube or Vimeo. Myself and a few other bloggers will choose the winners based on creativity, editing and entertainment value. Top three videos will catch a sweet prize.
I will announce three winners and their prizes May 1st. I will not say what the prizes will be, however, they will be worth it!
Here are a few helpful links. Youtube.comVimeo.comFree and easy to use editing softwareFree music for your video
- Go to "Advanced Options" and select "free"
If you are new to taking video instead of still pictures you can email me anytime at email@example.com. If I do not know the answer to your video question I will find out.

Is it ok to use a previously posted video? I have (what I think) is a super cool time lapse of a trip to Antero I took with a buddy of mine.
Alan Peak (moosegoose), CO 4/9/2012 8:58:48 PM
Sure, show it off!! Start up a forum post for it!!!
masteroftheloch, CO 4/10/2012 1:15:42 PM
I just submitted my entry!

Anyone know what the rules are for using music in your youtube videos? I have a specific song or two in mind but don't want the video taken down for breaking copyright laws. Never posted a video to youtube, so it's all new to me.
ePiC, CO 4/12/2012 11:07:05 AM
As long as you put a tag in there... Music by blah it should be OK.
Alan Peak (moosegoose), CO 4/12/2012 11:21:30 AM
Yea, I put credit for the artist at the end. You would be surprised how many musicians will give you permission if you ask nicely. It gets tricky when you monitize your youtube account. I make money on my videos but the ones with music I do not have specific permission for I cannot profit on. Youtube will side on the cautious side and not let you monitize anything with music until you show documentation of permisson.
jfred17, CO 4/12/2012 10:53:16 PM
As mentioned, just put the artist name in and you should be fine, in most places. One of my videos is banned in Germany however, so I apologize to all my German viewers, ha.

When is the deadline for submitting videos? Is that May 1st as well?
Alan Peak (moosegoose), CO 4/13/2012 8:04:46 AM
May 1st it is! Submit it on the forum as "your vide" I am keeping my eye out for them.
TripleBOutdoors, GA 4/14/2012 11:36:20 AM
Great idea Alan ...I am trying to get mine done to get submitted.
PatchFly, CO 4/18/2012 7:15:56 PM
OK - I'm in. I hope I did this correctly. First time to Vimeo, and absolutely first time to editing the one and only video, I have ever filmed. Be nice!!! haha Do I just provide you with the link here? (it should be viewable in 20 min) http://vimeo.com/user11341373/patchfly
cruzzer, CO 4/19/2012 3:48:54 AM
where is the forum to upload this video? a link would be great!
i made a quick edit of some bow fishing
i intend to make an edit with some gopro footage of all my adventures with my dad
Alan Peak (moosegoose), CO 4/19/2012 7:00:45 AM
Cruzzer, I will add it in to the forum today. Thanks for throwing in your video!
cruzzer, CO 4/19/2012 2:46:29 PM
you care if i add a couple of videos?
Vanish, CO 4/19/2012 7:00:36 PM
I haven't finished my video yet (and good luck to me without a real cam), but I'm bumping this thread so I get some more competition!
Mr.Charles35, CO 4/22/2012 8:40:06 PM
Can you extend the date past May 1st? That would help me out a ton because I'm planning on getting a GoPro soon and need sometime to make my video. Thanks
Alan Peak (moosegoose), CO 4/22/2012 9:53:13 PM
Sorry Mr. Charles, my date is set and I am going to stick with it. Please post your video's though. I hope by the end of the contest you pick up a lot of cool ideas and put your twist on it!
MIP, CO 4/22/2012 10:17:12 PM
Just put mine up! But this vimeo address isn't linking. Do you know how to link it?
Mr.Charles35, CO 4/22/2012 10:22:50 PM
Alright I guess I'll just have to hustle, or could you do another contest later in the year?
Alan Peak (moosegoose), CO 4/22/2012 11:13:06 PM
Perhaps! Maybe we will put a twist on things at the end of summer!
cruzzer, CO 4/24/2012 5:56:42 PM
i got one more video to post thanks!
copperjohn24, CO 4/24/2012 7:16:23 PM
What editing program is everyone using?
Alan Peak (moosegoose), CO 4/24/2012 8:01:50 PM
I use a few different programs. Linked above is a free one if you do not already have a editor. It is Windows Live Movie Maker and will do the trick!!
toobman, CO 4/29/2012 5:08:55 PM
I use windows live movie maker.
Troutkillah, CO 5/24/2012 8:48:16 AM
I know I'm late for the contest, but you should still check out this GoPro video of our last ice fishing trip on Granby. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv_bTW_ePFk&feature=youtube_gdata_player
