I have something to admit to you guys: I’m not the most musically inclined person in our group. That distinction falls to Ari, whose dad actually performed “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” Yes. That’s his dad.
But the grand prize of this awesome Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call contest is making me want to try my hand at it. Maybe you’ve heard of it? By submitting a video to http://www.theatrhythm.com/contest.html that’s no longer than 1:30 that depicts your own personal depiction of the Final Fantasy main theme (that’s this, NOT the prelude), and if your entry is selected by long time series composer Nobuo Uematsu, you will win ALL of these prizes. And I repeat: ALL. Can I say that again? ALL:
- A round trip for two to an upcoming Distant Worlds: Final Fantasy concert! Distant Worlds: Final Fantasy is the world-touring symphony orchestra performing an ever-expanding repertoire of live Final Fantasy music!
- A Japanese Limited Edition Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Nintendo 3DS LL! (Editor’s Note: only plays Japanese games. Thanks, Nintendo >:(! )
- The official soundtracks of all 14 numeric Final Fantasy titles, totaling over 30 discs of music!
- A Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Collector’s Edition, signed by Nobuo Uematsu!
- One Final Fantasy Static Arts Mini Figure!
Still a bit hazy on the requirements? Watch the video posted above, which has a reference for both the beats and the key you’ll need to be playing it on. Also, if you’re not picked for the grand prize don’t worry. You’ll have a chance to be featured on an upcoming Theatrhythm video if you did well! But honestly, you want that grand prize don’t you? Don’t dawdle, however: the contest ends on August 24, 2014 at 11:59pm!
Again, here are the video requirements:
- Keep your submission under 1:30 (one minute, thirty seconds) to qualify!
- Somewhere in your video, have a sign or piece of paper visible with the name of your favorite Final Fantasy title written on it!
- Want to have a shot at being featured in an upcoming trailer? You’ll have a better chance if you’re able to perform the piece at 120-125 beats per minute in the key of F!
You can find the full details on the contest’s official page at http://www.theatrhythm.com/contest.html.
