DTUBE CONTEST FOR 60 SBD ($180 USD) - Make Yourself A Geeky Theme Song

in steemit •  last year 

"I want to be the very best like no one ever was" (Pokemon theme song.)

Who doesn't want a theme song? Maybe when you enter a room or get changed. The contest is to make a geeky theme song for yourself or for whatever geeky topic you want. It can be gaming, marvel, comics, board games, art, whatever. I do not want any video (but you won't be disqualified if you add it), the goal is to focus on the audio. But the rules stop there. You can make it a sick guitar rift or make funny noises with your mouth. Pew pew laser gun noises are always funny. It can have lyrics or just a mix of sounds. I will be picking a mix of highest quality to funniest ones so everyone has a chance. And it doesn't have to be geeky it can be a cool rock song with a video game reference thrown in.

As for length think the beginning of a cartoon. Like the awesome Pokemon theme song. But you will not be penalized as long as it is over 10 seconds. You want to make me a whole opera go for it :p. And please don't make a fool of yourself, if you are shy or want to run for president one day (though he has been recorded doing much worse :p), make it without your voice and face. There are free audio mixing programs out there you can play with.

I want you to upload it to dtube and then post the video or link in the comments. This will help to support dtube which is a steem version of youtube. You can also use youtube (I want this contest tobe open to steem and non-steem people) but try for dtube. And if any @dtube staff is reading this please help spread the word for the contest, your support is appreciated.

Here are more contest details:

  • There will be 4 winners who get 15 SBD each.
  • Contest ends two weeks from today (May 21, 2017)
  • Original work only

And please resteem, tweet, bug your friends IRL. This contest is for all the geeks out there. And if you are new, welcome to steem, it is free to sign up. So get in here you geek :p.

Good luck to everyone. :)

May I submit this song for consideration @sutter The first 10 seconds. I can create a snit bit file and attempt to meet the conforms of the requirements.

You should add something on your site http://www.christiansutter.com/about/ to know its you, I see it on the site, a bit more clarification would help a lot.

I created http://www.daddykid.net for the album. I can put something there too.

I can do that. I'll update the website in the morning.

Hi @whatageek! This is a cool contest. I like making contests myself but just simple ones. Would it be okay if I tie this up with another contest? I am thinking of making a post by referring others here to this contest to join or choose who they like and then I will choose among those who joined through my post who I will give reward to.

Go for it :)

The price is not worth for making a song. 50% of the 7days post earning would be worth the effort. Bots not included.

I don't know what a upload ,,, just eror give me, please help me

Have you tried d.tube and youtube?

Already vote you

Wow this is amazing. Ama try it out


Great I'll think of a good entry and win the contest ... thanks friend ..... that pokemon song is the maximum hahaha

Hey hey hey, I'm a music producer, I'd love to enter this competition!
