Calling All EVE Online Filmmakers: Show What Makes EVE Unique!

By now you've probably seen the “This is EVE (2014)” trailer that we published a couple weeks ago, but if not, go check out the uncensored version on our YouTube page. Our goal for “This is EVE” was to show what it actually feels like to play EVE Online, by showcasing real players doing real things in the game. Judging by the number of views the trailer has received on YouTube, the reaction has been amazing.

Now we’d like you to show us, and the rest of the world, what you think makes EVE Online unique. We’ve prepared some prizes to encourage you to team up with your friends to do so.

Your mission: Create an amazing trailer that demonstrates what EVE Online is for you and those you play with. Then share it with us at share@eveonline.com (with the subject “This is EVE video submission”) by February 20, 2015.

A panel of CCP employees, including members from the EVE Online development team, community representatives, and video production pros, will select the best entries. Those videos will be showcased at Fanfest 2015 (March 19-21) in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The top three trailers will be screened at the CCP Presents keynote on Saturday, March 21, 2015 and their creators will win a set of fabulous prizes. (Note: Attendance at Fanfest 2015 is not required to win.)

What kind of prizes, you ask? Fabulous prizes! But specifically, we think players will team up to create these videos, and want to reward you for doing that. Here’s what you could win if you submit a winning video:

First Prize:

Three one-year subscriptions to Adobe Creative Cloud Complete
100 PLEX
Three copies of EVE: The Second Decade Collector’s Edition signed by the EVE Online development team

Second Prize:

Two one-year subscriptions to Adobe Creative Cloud Complete
50 PLEX
Two copies of EVE: The Second Decade Collector’s Edition signed by the EVE Online development team


Third Prize:

One one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud Complete
25 PLEX
One copy of EVE: The Second Decade Collector’s Edition signed by the EVE Online development team


If this sounds like something you’re into, get working on your own “This is EVE”-style trailer, and don’t forget to send it to us at share@eveonline.com with the subject “This is EVE video submission” no later than February 20, 2015!

Of course this wouldn’t be a real contest without rules, so make sure you read these if you want to enter:

    Well, ****. I had the perfect idea for my entry but it uses some of the soundtrack from the anime Sword Art Online as well as the scene with the NerveGear's fulldive sequence, and those are copypasta-protected.

    Oh well. I may still make the video anyway just for the lulz and just not submit it.

    If we just had a decent, script based Battle Recorder to create post-cinematics from different camera perspectives (like what CCP is doing), then CCP would get a lot of epic promotion material. For free.

    The latest EVE trailer is maybe the best commercial video for EVE but it will again polarize. Many people will try EVE but most of them will leave disappointed because the zoomed out gameplay is mainly covered by windows and brackets and not showing the athmosphere of the trailer.

    If we had the option to record all action into a script for a playback with the EVE engine with great camera features we would have endless and fantastic possibilities to present intense battles from complete new and different perspectives. Filmmakers would be able to edit never seen before videos of real action of a video game and maybe it all can be rendered in a much better quality. This would be something completely new in the game industry and attract many people with passion for film making.

    The only portion I'm a bit confused on is the inclusion of submitters real world names, I assume CCP won't be including that in the info after the winners are selected?
