ESA Community Intermissions

Disappointed that the best glitches of your favourite speedgame are never used in the actual run? Do you feel the urge to educate the world about hidden gems that rarely or never see the light of day?

We have just the opportunity for you! We’re looking for short videos created by the speedrunning community specifically to be shown during intermissions at our events.


The videos should have a maximum length of at most 90 seconds. They consist of a short introduction of yourself (preferably while showing a splash screen) and whatever you’re about to show off as well as the showcase itself followed by a short outro. We’re leaving all the details up to you. If it’s a very technical glitch, try doing things slowly while explaining as you go. Keep in mind that viewers who have never even seen the game before should be able to follow along. If it’s short, feel free to do it multiple times or just keep the video very short and concise.

It’s also up to you if you record everything in one go or add an audio commentary during post production.
If you want to make it possible for us to use the video in future events, don’t mention ESA Summer 2019 specifically, but only ESA instead.

While glitches are the most obvious use case, it’s by no means a restriction on what is worthy of being shown. If you feel like it’s entertaining, related to speedrunning and can be packed into a format this short feel free to submit it.

Technical Requirements:
- Preferred visual quality: 1080p (or equivalent in other aspect ratios) with a bitrate of 20 Mb/s
- Minimum visual quality: 720p (or equivalent in other aspect ratios)
- At least decent microphone quality
- No camera feed unless it is critical to what you’re showing off

Full credit for this idea goes to havrd, who was also kind enough to already submit a very good example:
Thank you!
