Unfortunately, I must forfeit the competition. I wrote my script a little too late, I didn't have enough actors and well, other things just didn't lend themselves in my favor.

It was a Zombie flick with a very basic story to it (like Zombie movies really are different from each other), but unfortunately, a bit to grand for a 2 day project. I wrote the script on thursday, past midnight which is technically already Friday!

Anyway, I'm out and very disapointed, but I'm looking forward to the other entries!

Well…..while I’m generally not superstitious I’m kind of afraid to say anything, but yes, I am editing on one of my other hard drives, praying nothing else goes wrong.

I lost the backup to the wedding you and I shot—so far the original is intact on an external drive.

Got some furious behind-the-scenes slasher action going on over here…this one’s gonna be close!

I blew it!

I just checked the forum, and I discovered I only have 1 day till the deadline. I didn't even sign up! I am bummed. Especially considering all of my movies are a bit 'scary'.

I guess that will teach me. I will have to monitor the forums a bit more regularly. Good luck to all!

So it's Saturday night before the deadline, 7:15 PM and I don't even have an idea! But I'm not out yet! I'm rounding up my friends, grabbing the gear and we're gonna get SOMETHING done! I think I need it to be crunch time to even get things done, and it's definitely crunch time!!

A full moon. Not just any full moon, but a Perigee moon which means it's even closer to Earth than usual. More lunar influence means more weird electronics failures.

Well, it will be the wall for me! Had one good idea but could not pull wardrobe and all together. Got another simple idea and was going to shoot yesterday afternoon and last evening. BUT, guess what, computer problems hit me too. It was my own fault though, I think?!

Had a rehearsal for our upcoming movie at my house yesterday and had 14 people here. During the early part of the day I was working at my computer, copying disks etc. and I did a "restore" at one point while I was wandering around the rehearsal. Not thinking, I walked in and hit the power button on the computer, thinking that it had locked up. It had not and was in the middle of the restore! Duh!

Let me tell you, if you have never done that before------Don't do it!

Lost the ability to use Help and Support (no more restore), Search Functions, and it would not recognize some of the operating system disc so I could repair. Only choice after hours of trying to repair, I was to do a destructive restore.

So after working on it until 9:00 pm last night, I'm up and back at it this morning. Probably have another 5 to 7 hours to go loading programs etc.. I know I have lost some that I will not find again. Lost all but a little footage, that was on other drives. I'm glad I was not in the middle of a project!

Good luck to all and I'll see you next time.

Mike

Lorinda had trouble last time too! If nothing else, you can send it to me or someone else and we can load it up for you.

Good luck Hugh.

On the wal...

I'm on the wall this time. Nothing came together - time, people, script. It just wasn'y meant to be... [wipes tear from eye]

I thought I'd be able to pull something together today, but no luck...

:-(

Finally

After signing up for the last two and not getting anything done, I've finally managed to get one done. Uploaded and ready to go. I look forward to seeing the others.

Well that was a close one. I managed to stay off the wall of shame again ... that is if Dylan gets my email.

If it hadn't been for the interest of my principle actress, I wouldn't have gotten my act together this time.

I don't know if anyone will be scared by my entry, but I (once again) learned a lot by improvising it together. Definitely a challenge.

Thanks Dylan.

I hope everyone else has survived their myriad horrors, both fictional and real.
