I did ask specifically about language, before and you didn't answer that. ['**** **** ****' as a line, which as bad as it would get] In the case of my film, that's probably the only real concern. (and some acceptable gore)

Plus some drug usage, but I don't see that as a major issue.

Daniel, it is good to at least get an idea if you can use it. In the last DVC-I basically went and viewed the entries for the last half dozen contests and found it's NO problem *IMO. Even the winner on one i can remember had some "bad" words.

LOL you're truly a good sport. I'm fresh off of a round to the chest (from a stunt gun- 8mm) and a good fall for a short film about 3 weeks ago - :-) Dying is fun when it's not real, tee hee

LMFAO. Or should I censor that to LMAO. So... can't type it, but can have it in the movie?
(Btw, not at all normally how I would speak, but it seems to fit... and it's in quotes.)

Anyway, I'll just risk it, then, since it doesn't seem I'll be getting a straight answer on this stuff.

Thanks for trying.

Cool! Thanks for the info all, I'm kinda new at this. :-) I don't think ours is even going to come close to being disgusting or bad taste...
can't wait to see how everyone interprets it, looking forward to watching the results!
Cheers,
Krissi.

Just remember how good Sir Alfred Hitchcock was at scaring us without resorting to gore/splatter/etc.

i don't know about that, marco. i think the very definition of a "good sport" is the guy who offers himself up as the primary victim in the killing fields of moi...!

The problem, there, is that I can't imagine his style fitting a 3 minute film; it was slow and lead up, very slowly, to a scary conclusion.

That's our challenge, here.

You haven't seen the last scene of Psycho? You could recut that into a 3 minute short film on its own.

EDIT: Technically, I mean the *second* last scene in Psycho. :)

The closing shots where they are pulling the car out of the swamp?

Oops, I forgot that the film actually ends on the car being towed from the swamp.

I meant the scene before it that shows Norman Bates as his mother.
"They’ll see, they'll know, and they’ll say, 'Why, she wouldn’t even harm a fly!'"

It wouldn't take much to set that ending up in 3 minutes as a DVC short.
