The aim is to create an Anime Music Video that is no longer than 4 minutes long and you can use any program you know how to use to that end.

This time we are going to skip the part that says anime (although that nomenclature is used for everything today), since the theme is Final Fantasy. Anyway there is an anime with that title, and as always, you can give another thought to the theme.

You have until 9.00 p.m. on the Sunday to upload your creations to the Intranet.

Do not forget to include your name or nickname and seat at the party. The videos will be screened on Sunday night. The Organisers reserve the right not to screen those productions whose contents are offensive (specifically, ours) or are deemed to be inappropriate.
