Also, this is my first documentary and video contest, so any advice, comments, critiques are much wanted.


Thanks,

Mike Watkins

I am working my @$$ off right now, and will post something shortly. I am assuming we are not discriminating against west coast participants and I am sure they have untill midnight...so I have another 90 min or so.... ?

(forgiveness is easier than permission)

OK, here's something...

YouTube - teaser for documentary

You are right, Philip. Even though it doesn't look like I'll get this thing finished I might as well keep it alive tonight. But talk about a rush job--I didn't even check for spelling errors. :)

C'mon, Ken--get that thing posted! :D

oh dang...when I sign in it says video rejected...too long. 13min 40sec when I know it is :30 sec exactly.
working on it.

Crap. Still says "rejected video length too long"
WTH ?! Trying vimeo now

OMG, I am such an idiot..I had a couple scrap clips 13 min later in my time line and didn't know it.. Grrr...

OK

I tried to go lean and mean on the rendering details to save file size before I realized why it was taking so long, so i am not too proud of the vid quality.

This is really great - I love seeing things in progress, and even though it might have been a bit annoying to do it this way, I think it's cool to have a bit of an idea of what everyone else is doing.

The other thing that's cool is that this content is so different than anything we've done in the other contests, so it means we're breaking new ground. That's exciting.

**Edit** If there is anyone who dropped out or didn't post because of the content confusion of last night, post here to let us know so we can still include you. I thought about extending this again but I decided it's not fair to those who stayed up late to work on things last night.

I again just want to thank those of you who've hung in there and put some elbow grease into this - it's been fun.

LOL! I remember doing stuff like that.

One thing about it, I found out about some things still missing on my computer. I had to replace the system drive and don't really know what I'm doing. Sometimes video card drivers can come in handy. I hope Driver Detective was a good buy late last night...

Now if I could just find what I did with the serial number for Cinescore I'd be in good shape. That's the reason there was no sound on my clip.

Kudos to you guys for getting your interviews! I'll try harder...
