I had some doozy issues getting set up, including the aspect ratio
for HDV -> quicktime .mov upload --> reelport's conversion to divx.

The preview files seem perpetually problematic, other than the full-

completed a dance film which I'm starting to submit around.

I had problems with the online form a couple years ago, but this time
just now it worked fine.
