Talk about "Scare us"...

Bill,

Very sorry to hear what you're going through. I hope you find a house left and with little or NO damage when you can go back.

You and your family are in my thoughts.

Stay safe!
And... try and get some footage if you can! :)

Well, part two shot tonight. Quite dark, but I love the location. Time for some color adjustment.

Talked to a composer friend today as well. Good things happening...

Good to hear the zombie shoot went well, Meryem.

How's everyone else doing?

Any chance you'll work it out Bill? Might be able to get something good out of this terrible week. I know it would be tough, but a horror film isn't some full-sets-and-costumes drama. Just a camera, some trees, and some good ol' suspense ;)

Looks like the winds have shifted away from our neighborhood and the firefighters are getting the part of the fire near our home somewhat under control, though many, many regions remain out of control. We're hoping to return home Wednesday or Thursday, and it looks like our home will survive...

Thanks for the good wishes, everybody,
Bill
PS: Dylan, we didn't bring the video camera (I know, what kind of video geek am I? Well, we got up at 6:30 AM and left the house with 3 little kids at 7AM, so I didn't have much time to grab the camera). My wife had her digital still camera with her, so I'll try to post some stills if/when I get a chance.

Bill, best of luck and I hope you get back into your home soon.

I have an idea, but no where to shoot it. Kind of wishing for a hurricane-----Just Kidding God!

May hit the wall this time. Good luck to the rest of you.

Mike

had my nose in the editor for 2 days and nights and had no idea how bad the situation in CA had become...editing can be like that, sometimes.

hope you're ok, bill, and the rest of the state. sobering.

and a little ironic to be working on a horror flick when such devastation is all around. the pictures are unbelievable.

Damn, I didn't sign up though I'm just working on a 3 minute short that would fit the theme. Actually, it's a comedy but, hey, a german comedy, that's scary, isn't it?

The good news:
The evacuation order for our area has been lifted. We're going home today.

The bad news:
There's an evacuation order for Valley Center where Ronn Kilby lives. I tried sending Ronn an email but didn't get a response. Ronn, are you out there? Any news on your home? I have my fingers crossed for you...

You can still sign up! :)

Good news for you, Bill--that's quite a relief, I'm sure.

I'm trying to stay updated on this also. I have family in that area and the ongoing reports have been pretty scary. I hope all is okay with Ronn.

the links to the rules on dylan's blog site aren't working ("page not found"), and i haven't done one of these in a while.

what's the maximum time limit on our entries?

Hey Meryem, switching over to a new site, not totally finished.
New rule page:
http://thedvchallenge.blogspot.com/s...ficial%20Rules

Time limit 3 minutes + 20 seconds leeway/credits.

Stoked to see your zombie film!


Bill, glad you are safe, let's keep our fingers crossed that it gets under control soon!

I didn't start doing anything and I will not have time to do something this time.
As I don't want to be impaled on the wall of shame, I started doing a program for viewing DVC entries.

Thanks for the inspiration. I have an idea but it would take to much time to put it together and I would have to rely on too many people so... Maybe I can come up with something to do alone (again).

Here's to you and hoping you can also pull it off!

That is what I had to do, I knew I didn't have much time but I at least could enlist the services of my girl friend so I am not totally alone on this one. Good luck!
