DVC10 - And the Winner is...

Guys and gals, it's been my pleasure to run DVC10, the first horror themed DV Challenge. Thanks to everyone who submitted a film, they were all fun to watch!

And now it's wrapped up. The votes are in. The winner is chosen. A $250 shopping spree provided by our sponsor Guy Cochran at www.dvestore.com is ready to go to the new champ. Thanks Guy. It sure makes it more fun when there's something to battle for!

And of course thanks to Chris Hurd and the rest of DVinfo.net for being the best damn video forum on the internet.

And thanks to everyone who submitted a film. If it wasn't for you guys... well, I could have spent the last two weeks in Jamaica.... Hmm...

Anyway, you are all winners simply for the fact that you got up and did it. Making a short film isn't easy, which is why we call this a challenge!

But as always...

There can be only one!

So... the results...

This is the first time ever, that all films submitted received at least one vote! If nothing else, it is an indication of the quality of this batch of films, so a big shout out to all! Everyone gets a nod here.


Honorable Mentions:
Films that score at least three or four votes get an honorable mention. This challenge, they are:

Mugurel Dragusin "Knock-Knock Freak"
Ronn Kilby "Cutter's Revenge"
Joshua Chesarek “Instant Message”
Travis Johnson “I’m Sorry”
Marco Wagner “Unforeseen”
Dick Mays "Better Day"


DVC10 RUNNERS UP
Second runner up
Joshua Chesarek “Instant Message”

Nice work Joshua, it was very close between you and...

First runner up
Marco Wagner “Unforeseen”

Great short Marco! Very nicely done.


And now...


Drum roll please...


THE WINNER OF DV CHALLENGE #10 IS....

Travis Johnson “I’m Sorry”



Travis, great work!

Nice and scary, good twist at the end, all packed together into a tight film.
Congrats! Email me your address and I'll get dvestore.com to get your prize on the way!


And that ladies and gentlemen, is a wrap. Tune in to DVC11 in December for our annual charity event!

Cheers!

*GIANT GASP!!!!!* Not really to much on words right now as I'm just in shock. I really want to thank everyone who voted for me. It was so fun being involved with the challenge and not only has it brought a great prize for my work but has brought me many lessons for my future in film making. I couldn't be more happy right now, this has made my not so great day turn into the greatest day I've had in a long time. Thanks so much again for the votes and for the feedback I received. Making this film was a great experience and I can't thank DVInfo for giving me the inspiration to go out there and make things happen.


Really need to add in some thank you's:

Thanks to:

Dylan for organizing the challenge
My dad for helping setup and design the set
Branden and Dee for helping out with everything
Rusell, Jenn and Meck for their great work on screen
Lauren for the great hair and make up

Great Job

Hey, this is the first time I've gotten the top three films right! Great work to you all! You guys did the scary stuff well.

I enjoyed the scary movie stuff so much, I made another scary movie last weekend for the 50 hour film competition in Atlanta. I will post a link in a few days so my buddies here at theDVchallenge can give me likes and adds!

Now, it's back to work, I have a tough problem to solve. (I have to find a reason to be sick and go home to get some sleep..)

Thanks for the congrats! I also want to give props/respect to everyone who entered this with me. We all had the motivation and courage to do something in a somewhat short amount of time and I'm happy to have been involved with this challenge along side other great and talented film makers!

Travis, Joshua, Marco and all those who got an honorable mention:

Congrats, folks.

Travis' problems are just beginning tho. He has to decide (choose wisely) from a probably bewildering array of "goodies" to spend his prize on...

Have fun, guy.

The big win for me, as always, was in seeing what each of you accomplished with your work. I knew at the start that we were going to see the most imaginative group of works yet...And we did.

This one was more fun than usual.

P.S. I have a link to the "behind the scenes" with the "ghost hunter" team in my feedback thread.

Congratulations Travis!

Here's to you and your crew Travis! Well done indeed.

I'm smiling as I read your words. Once you get over the shock and buy something cool from Guy at the dvestore.com, won't you take a moment to let us all know what treats you selected?

Congratulations to Marco and Joshua in the Runner Up position too. You guys did great!

Thanks so much! I am thinking or upgrading my audio equipment and getting a RODE NT3 and spending a little extra out of pocket to get the Steady Stick.

I got the Steady stick and it works quite well for helping hold up a non shoulder camera when filming for long periods of time :)
