Boy, was I ambitious! I shot it all using Chromakey with no video editing experience. It took an entire weekend to get the shots I wanted with the backgrounds I wanted, edit it to 59.9 seconds and then compress it to 49.9MB. I had a beard for a show I was in at the time, but Ive already shaved it off. No visible tattoos (no invisible ones either).
They make their first cut of 20 on the 7th, then phone interviews and background checks, then announce the votable 10 early March. Top 3 vote getters are flown to WDW April 16th to perform "tasks" which are videotaped and posted, and the public votes again to pick the winner (who is then announced April 22nd).
