Hi All, just wondering has there been any posting for a list of who actually made onto the DVD for the ELE competition? And although its probably too late do you think they should have a list of all the entries with their respective You Tube or Vimeo tag addresses on the DVD release somewhere?

I wondered that too.  You'd think if people got a call or email they would be blowing up message boards about it (\"I'm in the ELE! I was selelcted!\"), but I haven't seen anything personally.

Only thing I can figure is winners were not notified (they'll find out when they see the DVD?) or they were notified & sworn to secrecy OR they are going to notify folks right on December 19th.

I was going to enter...I swear I was...I'll do it next time!
*Still regrets not getting it together in time*

Yeah, I entered the comp and haven't heard anything... and I haven't heard of anyone who has (done a pretty extensive search for people announcing anything online) - So I think they're keeping it a surprise. Could be wrong though.

PS, if you're interested, here's my entry

Sure sounds like it, keep everyone guessing to the last moment,  or like BethJ says, those that got in are not telling....interesting strategy senor Whedon!!

 Ahh well good luck to everyone!!

I know we all consented to have the vids used by ELoE, but it would seem they would contact the winners just to cross all the legal T's. Oh well, we'll find out soon enough.

YES, I'm a puppet. Doesn't mean you don't have work to do

Maybe people voided those copyright rights once they entered the competition, who knows I can't remember reading anything like that though.

Interesting - I've been wondering about this, too. I have heard NOTHING about anyone being selected but I would really think that they would notify the people beforehand and not just include them on the DVD without telling them. My guess (and it is only a guess!) is that the people who are on the DVD know already but have been asked not to say anything until after the release. It does make you wonder why, though.....

I'm just hoping my DVD gets to me before the New Year 🙂

If anyone from team Horrible asked me to keep my mouth shut until the 19th, I would do it in a heartbeat. 

I would also run around naked through Time's square yelling \"Buy Dr. Horrible on DVD\" if they asked - but that's a different story.

I tend to agree with the speculation that the top 10 have been contacted.

Think about it - anyone dedicated enough to make a top 10 ranked entry would have enough respect for Team Whedon to 'keep mum' about their status if they were asked to.

Personally, I would love to hear about rejection letters from Bad Horse going out to all the other entries, but I realise that is a bit unlikely.

I threw my evil hat in the ring, too, and I was glad to see a thread about this (Higlet–I was hoping you'd try to wheedle some ELE answers out of Felicia!  Lovely interview, at any rate).  The idea that the winners were contacted and had to sign an non-idsclosure agreement a while ago makes goodly sense (and I'd respect Joss and Co. for wanting everyone else to be surprised.  Surprises are fun, and it provides a lil extra dvd incentive).

But…maybe they wanted to surprise winners, too (or not have to worry about secrecy/NDA's), and assumed no one would object to being included on the dvd without signing stuffs.  So I'm holding on to my evil fantasies for another week.  If I can spend 4 months dreaming of the Bad Horse Chorus showing up at my door, I can hold out for a few more days

I'm glad you liked the Felicia Day interview, thanks! Luckily she saw the funny side of the ELE application I did on her behalf .

I'm sure that she wouldn't have told me if I had asked about the applications, but the truth is I never thought of asking her. All this is uncharted territory for everyone concerned and if I gave the impression that I'd given up hope - then that would be wrong. Of course I am still hoping against hope to be on the DVD! I was trying to work out if I could not be on the Internet from Dec 19th to whenever my DVD comes, but that is unpossible, so I'll be awaiting the first posts from people in the US to find out for sure.

Everyone who did an application is a winner anyway - we've helped to make entertainment history!

I didn't enter myself so never paid attention, but I would imagine it would have said somewhere in the conditions of entry that the winning entries would be used on the DVD and by entering you're granting permission for such?  Which would mean no agreement would need to be signed as anyone who entered agreed...?

The rules only state:

Finalists may be contacted by the League or its agents.

I like to focus in in the \"MAY\"

Hehe, I think I was just trying to talk myself into not giving up til the eggs are counted, Higlet.  The ELE site definitely made it clear that the winners would wind up on a dvd, Admin.  However, there was no \"and by submitting to us you grant us permissions for use of video and your eternal soul, etc. etc.\" clause.  Something to that effect would make it a tad easier to hope against hope at this point.  But I like to visualize happy endings.  Since folks may be traveling this time of year, I'm imagaining winners getting a congratulatory email from the ELE on the 19th or 20th and then receiving a complimentary copy of the dvd by mail a few days later complete with a bonus disc of the BHC and/or Dr. H singing them a special congratulation song.  Ahhhhhh, happy day dreams.  In the mean time, I'm still having fun watching applications now and then on youtube.  I often watch Dr. H while I enter data at work but the other day I switched it up and finally watched all of the Processing Office videos in their entirety.  Delightful!

Oh Sneak Attack!!!  I love you!!!  (If a Super Villian can love someone...)  I too am hoping against hope that somehow Average ends up in the ELE...  even though I sort of started my fan-vids with a rejection letter... Bad foreshadowing on my part - Oh, well!  The 'prize' we were all competing for WAS a slot on the DVD, so it makes sense that by going to the trouble of writing, shooting, editing and submitting we were in effect consenting.  Besides - does something become more or less public domain once it's on YouTube?  Do news agencies need permission to show YouTube clips on TV if it's already in an entirely public forum?  Can't help it peeps - got to keep the dream alive - for another few days at least:-)  Good luck all!

Thanks, evil buddy!  It's fun to Pollyanna the hooey out of things 🙂  I feel cheesy because the main incentive for winning fer me would be the subsequent power to persuade my hubby to wear his kilt to SD Comic Con and pretend to be an evil robot/clone/or zombie.  I'm a dork.  Maybe I can still talk him into it.  Come on eyelashes--getting to batting!

Incidentally, I stayed up all last night working on a paper and now have a nasty cold.  Why do I not learn from your evil mantra and avoid the urge to achieve????

Well apart from the top 10, there appears to be a minute-long list of Dishonorable Mentions - according to here. So you may at least get your name in lights!

I had long ago decided I would not make the cut - the quality was amazing, and I would not have envied them one bit trying to narrow it down to the final ten.

But I had fun making it, and also enjoyed viewing many, many of the other applications. The only thing left to do is to post my rejection video once the top ten our officially revealed

When it comes to the evil intentions of man I'm always optimistic.

Yes Sneak Attack!  Why 'try' when you can 'get by?'  Hope you're feeling better - SHOOT! - I mean, um - only slightly mediocre soon.

I have a feeling there will be lots of rejection vids coming out in another week or so...

So ironic that I started with mine. Guess that almost makes me an 'over-achiever' - YIKES!  How did that happen???

Anyway - still curious about the rest of the winners and the dishonorable mention list.  I promised some people I wouldn't buy it before Christmas (WHY?) so if anyone hears anything about Me and NK making the list, please let me know.  The suspense will be killing me slowly - as NK digs her claws into me in anticipation...

Oh - Wait - so DUH!  Obvious question here - sporting my Average Intelligence for all to see - did the afore mentioned Villians know that they were included before the review came out? 

Tur-Mohel, be a mench and let us know - will ya?  You're killing us here...

Average Out!
