[OP-SP 2] Breaking Records Entertainment Round 1

Postby Breaking Records » Sun Oct 10, 2010 10:10 pm

The day has finally come, and your moderators and admins finally ended their judgement!

We received really awesome covers, each one was great!
But of course you all knew, that a cover is not enough!

But I don't wanna tease you any longer! BTW! Rank 1-3 will get prizes! :D

ImageHERE ARE ALL GROUPS !!!Image

Rank 1 - Group 05: DRE4MS (Deep reaching energy 4 melodious songs)
ChoKyu19 (Leader), hazelnutter, hirokibaby, shouie_yuri
Manager: Shisshi
Song: Slumber Wars (Mandy Moore - Stupid Cupid, Ai Otsuka - Peach, Lady Gaga - Bad Romance, Narsha - Mamma Mia)

Our concept is about dreams, as our group name says :3
To make it a little more interesting we divided our 4 member group into 2 teams to have a battle "good / innocent dreams VS bad / naughty dreams".
The good team is hazelnutter and shouie_yuri, the bad team consists of hirokibaby and ChoKyu19.
For making the good VS bad battle not plain or boring, we not used 1 song, but 4 songs and mixed these 4 to 1 song. The title of our created single is "Slumber Wars" (, because the battle is taking place IN the dreams themselves, so we sing about the things happening in dreams and not dream themselves xD) :3
The good team sang: Ai Otsuka - Peach & Mandy Moore - Stupid Cupid
The bad team sang: Narsha - Mamma Mia (Electro Remix) & Lady Gaga - Bad Romance
(I apologize in advance, that we had to use a vocal cut for Stupid Cupid.. we had an instrumental for it, but it turned out really bad while mixing (it was not fitting at all), but we didn't have time to find another one, so yeah, we work with the vocal cut :3)

CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who took part in this project; even though you had problems and often had to work with someone you didn't even know before, you all managed to hand in your files on time! We were really amazed by all the covers we got. Everyone did their best, and I want to thank you all for making this contest possible Image I am glad so many people liked my idea, and the outcome is even better than I expected it to be!

It was really hard to judge this, and as you know, we have been judging non-stop for a few hours, comparing all results. This is what we came up with, and I hope noone is disappointed about the result - you all did great!

I think something I personally learned for the next contest is that we need a better structure - the managers shouldn't just be there to help but to assign tasks as well. We as managers stayed a bit in the background this time, but if we do a contest like this again (which I hope we will!) it'll be different.(^_^)

LENA!!! TAMMY!!! *huggles*

It's not that I don't want or know how to comment, but it's a) so much and b) so much good stuff.
Yesterday before I went off I only had a chance to listen to the songs and I wanted to see everyone's full results, if you get what I mean.

CONGRATS TO DRE4MS!!!
The Medley idea is crazy and it must have been a lot of work, the mixing and after mixing shooting the MV for it. I also love your CD cover a lot. Watching the MV, I grinned a lot (Miri, you just couldn't help bouncing to Mamma Mia, right? ^^) and I love those masks. I'm so going to make one from the tutorial. Stupid Cupid was my favorite part in both song and MV ;)
So, congrats, I bow to your creativity and go to hug my 2nd placed team ^^

Dear my Un.limitED's!!!!
GREAT JOB! Our song was hard, but I think you did the mixing and timing very well and the harmonies fitted. Our team work was good and even though we only made a booklet I think we were creative with the concept and the multilingual song and all our ideas were brought in. Hani, we love you for your support ;)
*hugs Tomiya, Tammy and Lena* guys, we are good job ^^

Cas-C
First off, I really really like the commercial, it fits great with the cover (which is beautiful by the way). Nice song choice, Bolero is one of my favorite DBSK songs and it sounded really great. Kudos for the deep harmonies, I really enjoyed listening *replays*
I'm sorry to hear that you had a problem related to a team member, but I think you really organized things well even with that problem and therefore: congrats to 3rd place.

4AME
Shady Girl is a nice song and really fits to you. Especially the rap parts were amazing. The meaning of your name is pretty cool and since I'm a addicted YB lover I really thought the idea of putting YB scenes as MV was cool. That interview was interesting and nice to read. I think it's nice to see how close everyone grew through this project. Also, cool cover.

5tars
Wow, not an easy song (even idols can fail at covering it) and I think you did well, especially seeing that you sang both Japanese and Korean. I really love your CD cover, looks pretty cool.

Bright S.T.A.R
Your song is my favorite next to my own *erm* and Cas-C's Bolero. I really liked how your voices blended and I seem to have a soft spot for that song. So yeah, good job guys <3 *runs to relisten*

Dreamscape
I guess the music was a bit too quiet compared to your voice, but it was a nice listening nonetheless. The graphics for the promotions look good, must have been some work. The leader message was a cute idea ;)

TIMLESS RYDERS
I don't know the song so I really can't judge, but I liked that you used different dramas and a MV for your MV.
Interesting cut ^^


All in all I guess the outcome was good on all sides. The results are good, there are some really great songs and nice concepts.
I think the biggest profit is what we learn in the process of this project. We learned how to overcome problems, learned how to organize the stuff well, got to know each other better and worked as a group.
For my part I grew more into this forum thanks to my Un.limitED's and earned good friends that I don't want to miss and really would love to work with again. Love you guys.

Lastly to our Moderators: Thank you for opening up this big project! We all won a lot and the fun was worth all sweat and tears Image
