Pretty much sums it up... looks like you had jittery hands when writing it though, some letters are in the words twice.

If the statement makes no sense, I just automatically rate the statement a 1. It has to be a well constructed and thought through paragraph for me to give it a high rating. Personal opinion.

You're right, Volv. They need to double check their spellings and their grammar because they don't want to have errors in their statement quality and if they don't they'll never have some possibly to have good results on their application. It's just my suggestions.

This is the biggest oxymoron... this sentence is full of bad grammar and words all out of place.

Tell me this is a joke...

I generally don't mind it if I know English isn't their first language since I know how it can be heh.

While I agree that sentence structure is nice to have, it seems to me that the application is on behalf of individuals who want to become video directors rather than screenwriters. A badly worded application definitely would make me second guess the person, but videos with good quality picture and/or commentary may defeat my reservations about an applicant if I were in a position to judge an application. I've seen quite a few artists, directors, and machinima creators with wonderful videos who can't put a sentence together to save their lives.

well thats the big problem for us, who is not having english as their normal language. I am coming from Denmark, and still are having english in senior Highschool. I have never been good at all this Grammar. Danish and English are having a real different sentence setup, so I first of all have to find out how to build up the sentence, and then think about the grammar and spellings. I am hundred procent sure that I am having some bad grammars and sentence setups in this post. But the most important for me, is that you can understand me.

I am taking this website as a little extra studying. I am learning how to make better english sentences, and by doing commentaries, then I am also using the english language. This is a really great way for me to learn the english language. From 2 years I started making playthroughs, and I sucked that time. Now I am a lot better to write, speak and generally just use the english language.

Now the point is, that I think it is wrong that the spellings and grammars are having a big role from becoming a director or not a director. This website are having members coming from all over the country. What you are saying right now, is that you are only allowing english speaking people become a Director. Because if you are giving the statement quality 1/5 then you are not really having a chance to reach the director qualification.

While true, you're still easy enough to understand. I still prefer to only verbally speak Japanese since it's a lot easier for me, but typing English gets better as you go. So I doubt its held TOO much against you, it seems to be more towards people who are naturally English speakers that still can't seem to formulate proper grammar.
