I had a great idea for my own CMO video, but then I read that there is NO MUSIC ALLOWED in the entries!!! WHAT ON EARTH IS THAT ABOUT!? Is it abt copyright nonsense? I was SO disappointed bc my whole video was going to be a musical. Just me singing, no background music. ANyway, I'm completely bummed.:sad1:

luvsTink
01-25-2008, 09:57 AM
Some people are singing in their videos and they are being posted....I am not sure if that means it is ok, or since it is Disney music it isn't an issue. However, folks with other music are not being posted. I think better safe than sorry on the music thing.
hey, but what do I know?:confused3
If this is some Disney ploy to get me to want to go the parks again, it is working!:rolleyes:

I guess I was in a silly mood when I made it.. let me know what you think! :goodvibes

also, I sang a bit in mine (sort of hehe) so I hope that's ok with the judges! I say, if you have an idea for a video and you sing in it, go for it!

oh man, I loved LuvsTink's video! (the mickey bars!) everyone did such a great job, I feel bad for those judges!

Okay, for those who did post their videos, how long did it take to upload for you application? I am trying to get this done and it is literally taking hours! i'm worried it won't be done before the deadline! Blerg!

Amy7979
01-27-2008, 08:24 PM
It only took a few minutes for mine to be uploaded. However, if lots of people are trying to get their entries uploaded tonight before the deadline, that would be affecting the speed at which each video can be transferred (depending on their setup on the backend).

Good luck!

I submitted mine yesterday and it took about 1-3 minutes....I didn't time it but it was really quick. I wanted to beat the last minute rush in case the servers were slow.

You still have 2.5 hours -- here is some pixie dust for you! :tink: :tink:

Let us know when it's up!

Thanks JDC! Last weekend, when it was only in a group of about 200 videos, I was feeling pretty good about it. Now, there seems to be a lot of videos way better. Oh well, it was fun to do and you never know just what they are looking for. :goodvibes

What happened with the folks that were trying to upload last night? Hopefully it ended up working out for you!

I took this from the other CMO thread...below is a quote from careerbuilder that HauntedMansionFan received:

“I spoke with the person in charge of handling Disney's CMO applications, and was informed that there was a technical issue with the vendor collecting the videos, that led to yesterday's inability to apply.

I was told that, since you do provide contact information on the 1st page of the application, they have that data, and will be contacting those via email today, providing instructions on how to re-submit the video.

Please keep an eye out on your inbox, and check the junk folders too just in case the email gets filtered by your client. It has not been sent yet but they will be doing so this afternoon.

For those that do receive the email, you will have until Midnight EST tonight to re-send your video.

We apologize for this inconvenience and wish you all good luck on the contest”

so does anyone have any idea of how many entries there were at final count? If I had to guess I would think there would be thousands of them!

Good thing to know that Disney is still doing the right thing. :goodvibes
Even though it means worse odds, I'd hate to have someone not be able to enter just because their video wasn't able to upload because of the server's fault.

Ho boy am I nervous about it, but no matter what, at least I applied. :rolleyes:

Hi guys,

I just wanted to add my video to the thread. This was my first attempt at movie making and I learned alot about my camera and computer! My children loved being the extras in my CMO video (I actually think they stole the show).

Watch closely for Dash...he has stolen Cinderella's slippers and will disappear with them in a flash!:yay:

Here's the youtube link:

My first time making a video of any kind. Boy, the quality did suffer in the upload. It looked so much better on my own TV.

Crossing my fingers that it actually was accepted...

Zulaya - don't give up hope. I think some new videos have been added since last night.

You know how you have to choose 1 from the random 25 block, then once it starts, you just see 5 thumbnails across the bottom? Well the new additions WERE showing up as the "first in line" in the 5, but I'm noticing now that new ones are being inserted in different places.

Mine showed up way back in line...maybe your's will too.

I watched yours, and you did a great job - can't tell it's your first. And the video quality is not bad, so don't worry about that!

Good luck - I'll keep an eye out for yours!

I have seen some really awesome videos online. I would hate having the job of having to narrow it down to only 20. There are so many good candidates. I know I have no chance but it was fun to do. Good luck eveyone!

What's going to be really interesting is to see what the top 20 then 10 look like -- will Disney just go for the funniest? will they go for those that are more professional? will they go for those that are sweet or goofy? will they choose ones that have lots of "extras" or ones where it's really just a camera and a person talking? I'm also curious how much the written essay portion will count, esp since there are a few writing assignments in the job description for the CMO.

If any of you have been keeping up with the WDW Mom's Panel thread, Bret, Erin and others were kind enough to post their thoughts on that whole process ... I'm hoping that those who make the final rounds will be able to do the same (maybe not immediately but at some point) for the CMO.

Also, since the CMO position goes until May 2009, does that mean Disney is going to extend the YoMD into 2009 -- or just make it permanent?!:goodvibes

I think it's great marketing!

Yea Im really interested to see the top 10. The qualifications they came up with could fit almost any of the videos ynow? But from what I've read about what the CMO will actually do it will require excellent public speaking skills, immense creativity, and probably some nice writing ability. MAN! I wonder who is going to win this thing?! It will be crazy to watch the top 3 they've gotta be some really special disney fans:mickeyjum

I was wondering how others interpret the rules that say

"Content of Online Entry video clip is limited to an audio commentary by entrant describing why he/she would be the perfect candidate for the position of CMO."

Does that mean that everyone who submitted a video with someone else talking will be disqualified? What does that mean to everyone?

I will link my video here when I figure out how. (not enough coffee yet this morning):surfweb:

I can't wait to find out who wins!

My DH and I discussed that b/c we were going to include him in the video but thought we better not just to play it safe. My assumption was that they wanted to hear the "CMO" talk, not someone else...

We also saw this:

"The presence of children in the video clip is allowed, but only if entrant is the parent or legal guardian of such children."

So any who included their grandkids, neighbor's kids, classmates or random kids at WDW in the background would also technically be disqualified??

FIVE more days!!!! I took this as that the entire video can't be of other people talking about the person for CMO through the whole thing, they actually want to see you and see how comfortable you are in front of the camera. So I don't think anyone would be disqualified for having someone else in their video for a small bit..... because why would they have the rule then about kids? Or at least I hope that my interpretation was correct, the first 10/15 seconds of my video is other people saying what they think of when they hear my name and they all reply "Disney"......

Marshay
02-02-2008, 07:22 PM
I also think Disney wouldn't post the videos if they didn't meet the rules, right? We can hope that if a video was on their site, then it is actually being considered?

As for singing, I assume that was ok to do...I believe their point was no "music" because of the whole copyright thing and they can't advertise the video if they don't own the copyright but someone singing, esp a made up song, should be OK.

Oh, well -- we'll find out soon enough what the children/commentary by entrant/music thing really meant when we start to hear who got the calls.

Meantime, it's nice to dream!

Well the problem with allowing for several kids to be in one person's video is the liability issue. Let's say Disney wants to use the winner's video for advertising. However, there's a classroom full of kids shown in it. Disney then has to go to the parents of every single child shown in the video and get the written consent to show the child in the planned form of advertisement (my guess would be a commercial), which is a pain in and of itself. Now throw in the fact that some people are greedy and would either sue the winner for exploiting their child so that the winner could win or demand that Disney pay their child for the use of the child's image and/or voice. Take that and times it by even just 5 children and you have one major legal headache.

I'm so glad to see that I'm not the only one obsessing about this!!! :rotfl2:

Well, here is my take on the "rules." Only the rule about not using music states the video will be "immediately disqualified." So, my guess is, they hear the music (not singing) and don't bother any further with the video. It is my hope that the other rules still apply for choosing the top 20, but doesn't immediately disqualify the entry, so they still made it onto the site. I for one will be extremely upset if someone with children other than there own gets through, because I own a child care center and had a great video using the kids from the center, but thankfully I read every word of the rules before I submitted and ended up doing a new video.

I CANNOT WAIT FOR THURSDAY TO GET HERE!! I think we all will have the doors to our virtual mailboxes worn out!!! I just found out today that I may be losing my job, which I love dearly, as a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse after 8 years due to record low numbers of patients (good for the babies, bad for me & my co-workers) . My choice is to either just not work and not get paid until things get better, or look for a new job. Since I like to live in my house, and the mortgage company likes to get paid, it looks like I'm in the job market. I'm thinking this would be a great time for Disney to pick me. I could use a major pick me up!

Well, here's hoping somebody from this site gets picked. princess:

With 1300 applicants they are taking the best of both...if I was in charge of picking the CMO, I'd have a team reading the essays and picking their top 50? 100? 150? and then a team watching the videos and picking their top 50-150? Then compare the two lists to find matches and whittle down from there.

Anyway, just my 2 cents!:goodvibes

catotigger
02-06-2008, 09:39 AM
1300 sure is a lot - I wonder if they really will have a decision by tomorrow...or if it will take them longer to evaluate?

As I pointed out in a earlier post, they said on or about February 7, but I was just kidding before. Now I'm not so sure we will find out the top 20 tomorrow.

This is just speculation on my part - mainly so I don't go crazy if we don't get word tomorrow, and it takes a little longer.

___________________________

Hi! :wave2: 'Just thought I'd come out of "lurking" to comment. (Although I didn't enter the contest, I've been religiously following this thread and having a great time watching entries on the dreamcmo.com web site -- at the expense of other household projects. :rolleyes1 I can't help myself. They're just so much fun!)

___________________________

Anyway, we both agreed that we don't envy the judges, who have a tough job ahead of them. We also figured that you really have to consider the full package (video, essay, personality). While some of the videos are absolutely brilliant, I get the sense that -- in some cases -- the applicant might not be completely at ease in front of large groups of people. They also might not look the part of a Disney Dream CMO -- whatever said "look" may be! ;) So, high-end editing software and technical savvy alone does not make a Dream CMO -- although I"m sure it helps [make the video stand out]!

For what it's worth... :flower3:


Best wishes to all who entered!

02-06-2008, 10:12 AM
I'm sure they're taking the essays into consideration, or else why would they have asked for them in the first place. I like Marshay's idea of two sets of judges comparing each aspect and then comparing notes, that would be a smart way to judge without bias. But who knows, really?

I do wish I'd spent more time on the essay answers, though! I think my answers were okay, but I know I could have made them better if I'd applied myself. I spent more time thinking about the video and how I wanted that to look than the essays. Oh, well, at least I entered...last year I kept kicking myself for not entering, so at least I took the plunge this year.

Hopefully only one more day of waiting before we know if any of us made it! popcorn::

Well, I'm sure they were probably judging the videos on the 5 categories listed in the rules as they were submitted, instead of waiting until the contest was over. I agree that many will be instantly disqualified, and also that there is much more involved than being able to make a technically clever video. People who made some of the cutest videos never even begin to touch on why the would make a great CMO. Also, knowing that the winner has to do public speaking engagements, Disney is going to want someone who can articulate and present themselves well.

At this point, I definitely feel that there are at least 20 videos better than mine, so I for one don't want tomorrow to come! This experience has brought so much Disney magic to my family in a very cold, dreary NJ (although it's 70 degrees today!). I don't want it to end!

Don't sell yourself short! I loved your video. The job is a PR position really. While I think they are looking for a good video, I believe they are also looking for an "image" (visual, speaking, etc.) that fits with what they have in mind.

Yeah, did you notice in all their advertisements they had a person in business clothing with mickey ears? That led me to believe that they are looking for someone who can speak in front of the camera, has a business sense (i.e, a level of maturity) and some intangible Disney quality that shines through...of course in addition to the magic and humor and entertaining, etc.

Oh, it's all too exciting! I'm actually going to be quite nervous tomorrow-ish when I get the email -- for that one last second before opening, I will still think I have a chance! :rotfl2: :goodvibes

I watched my video again. And tried hard to judge myself objectively with the 5 categories. When I added it up, I gave myself an 89 out of 100. That doesn't sound too promising.

I think the one thing I do have going for myself is that a big part of my current job is speaking in front of groups of people that I don't know. But I touched on that in my written application and not in my video.

I did just register in January because I wanted to do a fridge swap. I am more of a reader than a poster. I have lurked around the boards for over a year and found out so much info for my trips. I feel I have more to learn than opinions to share. And I a much more of a talker than a typer.

Thanks for listening, Carrie

I applied to and am dying for Thursday to come, but there are way more than 20 great videos on there, so we'll see. I think I am just like everyone on here...I can't stop thinking about it!

Will people please post if they make it onto the next round? That would be so exciting to hear about (Of course only if they will let you tell that you have made it onto the next round). And then they are still cutting half of that group!

Until tomorrow...I am sure we will all make ourselves sick :sick: Don't lose hope!

Good Luck everyone!:yay:

As much as it pains me to have to post this, here it what the contest rules say about top 20 notification: "All "Top 20" Finalists will be notified by e-mail, and overnight mail on or about February 7, 2008." So, I really doubt they are going to notify everyone of whether or not they are in the top 20. I see myself sitting in front of my computer clicking on my AOL mailbox every 60 seconds until Midnight, unless I somehow hear who the top 20 are during the course of the day! :surfweb:

What will be interesting to see is who from the Top 10 recently or suddenly join the DIS in their quest to get votes!

Here's to hoping DISser take all the top spots!


Wow, I hope I haven't offended anyone. I was just so excited about the contest, and my video, I wanted to talk with others who understood my excitement. When I searched Google, DISboards came up, and gave me a place.

If I am lucky enough to get in the top 10, I wouldn't want you to vote for me unless you liked my video best. I wouldn't want people thinking I joined just for votes.

Sorry...I'm new to this, so I didn't know.

Anyway, we both agreed that we don't envy the judges, who have a tough job ahead of them. We also figured that you really have to consider the full package (video, essay, personality). While some of the videos are absolutely brilliant, I get the sense that -- in some cases -- the applicant might not be completely at ease in front of large groups of people. They also might not look the part of a Disney Dream CMO -- whatever said "look" may be! ;) So, high-end editing software and technical savvy alone does not make a Dream CMO -- although I"m sure it helps [make the video stand out]!

For what it's worth... :flower3:


Best wishes to all who entered! I felt the same way, some of the videos were very creative, but then Disney "look" comes into play. There was one video that I really liked, but everyone I showed it to said "that girl is just annoying"..... so it comes down to a matter of opinion also I suppose.

Don't worry about it. We were all new once upon a time, and I don't think anything was directed at you personally. Many people on the DIS, like me, read a lot more than we post, so don't sweat it or apologize for being new. We'll all be excited for you if you are one of the Top 10, I'm sure! :hug:

No offense taken or given. I just meant what I said -- I think it will be interesting to see who joins DIS after the Top 20 or 10 are announced. It's a political move in order to get the votes -- is there anything bad or good about that? You decide for yourself. Just reminds me of when the politicians visit the senior center to get their photo taken with someone's elderly grandma and then they never go again.

I was a poly sci major in college so we studied that in the campaign/election course. Didn't realize back then that it could apply to Disney CMO! :goodvibes :rotfl2:

I am becoming very good at navigation through these treads. I do wish they were all in order though.

Regarding the cmo job -I am on the edge of my seat with waiting. No matter who gets in I will enjoy every step of this process.

here is mine -I hope I followed all the rules and I too wish I had spent more time on the written part. But I entered at the early part of the contest and did not have many others to compare to.

I did the same thing (spent more time on the written portion b/c I was an early applicant) and I think your video is much better than mine!!!

AmericanItGirl
02-06-2008, 01:36 PM
At this point, I definitely feel that there are at least 20 videos better than mine, so I for one don't want tomorrow to come! This experience has brought so much Disney magic to my family in a very cold, dreary NJ (although it's 70 degrees today!). I don't want it to end!

I feel the same way. I've been having major problems with my roommate recently (I had to call the cops on her...suffice to say she's moving out soon) and being a college student is never easy, so having this little glimmer of hope has been great. Gives me something to daydream about. ;) pixiedust:

I actually feel that my essay is stronger than my video (especially my favorite Disney memory), so I hope that factors in heavily into their choosing of the top 20.

Anyways, in the end, at least we all tried our best, which is all that we could do. :grouphug:

Go Team DIS! :cheer2:

One word about our recent Dis joiners..first and foremost...welcome! But a word of warning, this place is as addictive as, well, Disney!

Secondly, you may have noticed that one aspect of the contest for the top ten is who can best engage the online community at large. In fact, there is mention of some "tools" to help the top ten campaign. So, as some point I would expect to see all top ten folks here.


That said, I'll meet you all at the Grand Villa....I'll call ahead to have the freezer stocked with Mickey Bars :rotfl:

Touch of OCD - I have been lurking on the boards for a while and decided to pull up their old posts from around the time of their contest.

Then checked their rules and saw the date for the "on or before" was one day later than they said they got called.

They also got their calls it seemed in the afternoon.

*turns up volume on cell phone's ring* Thanks for the tip tough, because I usually have my phone on silent (professors get annoyed if your cell phone goes off in class). Luckily, I go to college in Southern California, so I'm sure that my professors will understand since it is Disney. ;)

I think the rules state that we'll get email and an overnight mail package. I'd be checking your email trash/filter folders to ensure that their email doesn't go into a spam filter.

Personally, I don't know why I'm at all excited. I logically know my video wasn't that great or special. I think I really lacked in the "funny" category. Yet, somehow, I still have hope. I guess that's a sign that I really want the job, right?

We're bound to have at least 1 DISer make it into the Top 20 and, unless they can't say they've moved on in the competition, we will hopefully know soon if we are not selected.

And to make this even longer, it is possible that the written application materials will be used to select the Top 10. Applications are great for determining interview questions and the Top 10 are selected through an interview process.

If they only have one person making the calls, and he was the first to get a call, and each call takes, oh, 10-15 minutes, there's still plenty of time to get a call before the day is over. And who knows, they may only start calling today and finish tomorrow! I personally won't give up hope until Saturday, I think, or until we account for the remaining 19 finalists. Always have faith in your dreams!

You know, if they are weighting someone's video editing skills and access to special effects, I guess they should have put that in the rules/expectations. "Video Editing Skills required" or something like that. Because if they are weighting it that way, that's really disappointing.

Frankly, I would rather they look at the person and what they said, both in the video and the written application, rather than what they did electronically to jazz up their video.

We all don't have access to that type of stuff. That's what Imagineers are for, right?!?

I totally agree - if they are looking for people who can put animation in the video - and there were at least 20 that did, then I am out and had no chance at all.

On the good news side though - he is not what I would call a 'skinny' man. That being said - it looks like weight not be a consideration for the position as CMO, and for me that is good news!

So lets all try to be positive. I too find it hard to believe that at least 1 person here would not be in the top 20! I have seen all of the videos, and I do mean ALL of the videos. lol

I know. I have zero idea how to edit a video or do special effects, so it was just me talking into a camera (over and over again until I got what I wanted to say in the allotted time and without any screw-ups) and attempting to make up for my lack of skills by being slightly original in my "script" and props. I'd like to see at least one video in the top 20 without any obvious editing and/or special effects. Just makes me feel even more hopeless.

As someone predicted, this contest is dragging all the lurkers out of the woodwork. But I did want to chime in to encourage everyone to keep dreaming as you never know when pixie dust will appear. I've been following this thread since the beginning and today been refreshing like mad after hearing on the iTM board that someone had already received their call - I had given up hope when I didn't get a call or email. Then 2 mins ago I got a call show up on my caller-id from Centra Marketing...low and behold it was the folks running the Dream CMO competition and a wonderful woman let me know that they would be emailing my documents to get notarized as one of the 20. WOO HOO!

Don't give up hope yet, my essays and videos were all done at the last minute - in fact my essay answers I was regretting not having written more as I wrote no more than 4-5 sentences for each question. And my video I edited using iMovie using its only its really basic tools. In fact the more I watched the other entries I gave up more hope because my video really didn't fit into the "traditional" resume type video - I barely even talk about myself. (Not to mention there were some REALLY faboo videos posted) I just set out to have fun, and more importantly I think dream for a little bit about how much fun it might be to work for the mouse. And I hope that's one of the things everyone who entered will get out of entering - the wonderment and dreams of "what if..." which honestly I have to admit has been really fun...

Good luck everyone awaiting their calls and emails!

I just hope that they're not ageists, because now I worry if my being so young (21) had anything to do with me not getting picked.

Congrats Peetah - just watched your video.

And for all of the rest of his - his has no animation - but great special effects. And a great imagination.

I wonder if they are calling east coast finalists first? So far, of the people who have a location under their user name, everyone is on the east coast, or at least eastern time zone.

Sorry, I stepped away from the computer. Here's the link:

My CMO Video (http://www.dreamcmo.com/view-dream-cmo-applicant.php?CMODID=CMO-FEA3DB869D51BCAB1782944635A751A7)

And yes I know I said it wrong. It did it very quickly on the first day. It wasn't until after I had uploaded my video that I realized it's "Magic" not "Magical."

Well if I'm right, you could still be in the queue to be called...especially if people are still getting calls at 5:30pm EST.

But oh no - I think I am out now :( So far everyone who has gotten the call is male.

:hyper:

I sure hope so!!!

According to what we know on this board, only 5 slots have been given. Maybe they also looked at location so that they don't give the 20 spots only to people who live in the state of New York or something.

Wait, scratch that...only 4 have been notified that we know of.

It will be disappointing if all the finalists are male. No offense, guys. But this country isn't all male.

But I will still have fun seeing all of the videos. Disneydd, what was yours about?

Okay, I must really want this position. I am shaking waiting for the call!

And the man whose name I forgot - silly me, that was Peetah. And the 4th then is Andy from that other board.

So 16 slots left, or have I completely lost my mind? :confused3

TLP127
02-06-2008, 04:50 PM

Jeez, you guys! You think you are bad....I didn't even submit an entry and I'm refreshing like crazy to see if anyone else made it.:lmao:

The ones that have been picked so far are really good. All really different though, so they are getting a good mix of styles.

Good luck! My fingers are crossed for everyone of you.

I keep doing them too! I have tried: I got the call + disney cmo, I got the call cmo (wow, you should see what that brings up) and nothing!

How can it be possible that others in the top 20 are NOT board members somewhere, or have never heard of the absolute biggest Disney boards around???

Congrats to everyone over here who made it into the Top 20! Here's where we're discussing the contest over on the Inside the Magic forums:
http://www.distantcreations.com/insidethemagic/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6591

Andy and Peter (Peetah) are the only ones who have posted over there that they are in the Top 20 so far.

In the 2007 contest, it took a few days before we were able to find and get a hold of all of the winners, and that was facilitated largely by finding their entries on YouTube and messaging them. This time, it may be next to impossible to find all 20, since at least a few will likely not be on any Disney message boards.

Amy7979
02-06-2008, 05:30 PM

DSNY4ever
02-06-2008, 05:54 PM
There has to be some women in the competition... At least thinking that is giving me hope that they still might call, except I was probably "the annoying girl" video that someone was referring to earlier :rotfl2:

I would think there would be some women in the mix, but I really hope they pick whoever has the best video and applications and if they thought that was all men, then I guess that's it!

Oh well good luck everyone. I hope everyone can sleep tonight...I know I won't be able to. I will hold out hope till Friday.

5pm here now - still no call :(

When my best friend called and I told her I was hoping she was someone else she laughed.

And I just completed another search and have found nobody else posting anywhere that they got the call, so there is still hope for all of us :thumbsup2

DSNY4ever
02-06-2008, 06:24 PM
Just for fun...since a lot of us are apparently sitting here.

Whose videos did everyone like and think should be in the top 20? I know I haven't seen them all, but does anyone have favorites out of the ones they watched? (Excluding their own video obviously, I am sure we all think our own should be in there!)

I saw one where the guy did it like it was breaking news and he even had the "CNN" type scroll across the bottom. It was good. I liked the guy with the cardboard cut outs of the rides and stuff, it was cute. But who knows what people put on their applications...our favorites might not have had the best answers.

HauntedMansionFan
02-06-2008, 06:31 PM
I liked the one that had the cutouts also, I thought it was well executed and creative. I guess fancy special effects only takes some computer and program knowledge. But the cutouts required effort and timing.... that was probably one of my favorites.

luvsTink
02-06-2008, 06:34 PM
Of course, I loved all the disers...
I liked the one where the woman is sleeping and a tiny "fairy" version of her is jumping on her bed....does that make sense?
I knew the one that got picked with the bunny cleaning the plate with its butt would get picked!

02-06-2008, 06:38 PM

02-06-2008, 06:39 PM
And if I make it into the top 20 I will even give you the link to mine! :rotfl:

DSNY4ever
02-06-2008, 06:40 PM
Thanks! The one with the tiny fairy was me! But I haven't gotten a call...at least it makes me happy to know someone liked it :) My poor husband had to hold up our computer to film it because we don't own a video camera and we had to shoot it all through our built in web cam...ha! We trashed the house moving the computer every night till it was done. There were so many good videos though and Disney fans are really creative with great personalities. So this is a tough competition.

Good luck!

On Insidethemagic, one of the winners from last year said he didn't remember getting a phone call, just the email...

MAYBE, just maybe, they are only calling the ones they needed to verify an email address for and the others will get the mail/email tomorrow?

If so, then there's still hope for all of y'all! :goodvibes

Well, I still can't find my video on the CMO website. I'm trying to upload to YouTube as we speak but YouTube is not cooperating. I clicked Upload like 10 minutes ago and it's still trying to send a request YouTube's server.

As soon as I get it up ~ if ever ~ I'll post.

I had zero special effects unless you count the magic wand I used that had a light up tip at the very end of my video. However, I think my written application was good as I spent a lot of time on not only how I make dreams come true in my current position, but also my memory and 100 words sections.

I think the one you're talking about was the one done by Patrick Herd, who does the Window to the Magic podcast. It was one of my favorites, too. So far, he hasn't posted anything on their forums about getting the call. I thought of all the videos I watched, he would definitely make the top 20.

Well, video is currently "processing" on YouTube.

I received my Top 20 call this afternoon.

I hesitated to post here because I read some of the posts about people coming here only after they made the Top 20. Guilty as charged... BUT, I'm not here for votes... I have a LONG way to go before that... and judging by the competition... a big hill to climb!

I was just looking to see who else might have entered or heard. I haven't done much looking around because I sent in my contest entry on the day I left for a Disney trip, and just got back a few days ago. I googled Disney CMO and was led to this forum.

In any case... I got my call around 3:30 PM EST. I'm a male and I used some special effects (basic) in my video. I actually haven't seen my video on the site... but if I can find the link, I'll post it here.

Don't give up if you haven't heard yet. I was on the phone for around 15 minutes... so if its just one person, then it would take them at least 5 hours to make all of the calls. So, maybe some today, some tomorrow. Keep the faith!

So, not ever having uploaded much to YouTube (like, once), how long should a video file be sitting in a "processing" mode? I think it's been like 30 minutes already according to the time stamp on YouTube.

The phone call was just basically going over what I was going to receive. She was very careful to point out that there is not actually a Top 20 yet. I have been chosen to be "eligible" to join the Top 20.

First they want to do the background check and receive my release. (I think I'll sign it!)

So.. one more ray of hope here... if somebody they have selected has a connection to the sponsors, or if they don't pass the background check (yikes) then they will pick an alternate for them.
