I'm terribly sorry to hear that.

Bruce, you'll be in my thoughts. You have my deepest sympathies.

Even though I sent you an email, Bruce, I'd like to add my sympathies here. Hang in there, Buddy.

Always running late, but worth it...

Hi y'all,

Okay then, you've sucked me in hook, line, and sinker - I see the LIGHT, so count me in (I just wired a donation for our worthy contest).

Good luck friends,

Michael Nistler

I believe Mugurel’s question was tongue-in-cheek, Mike. ;)

Dang it, I did such a lousy job of shooting the other night it’s been like micro-surgery trying to cut something together. We were so cold I didn't take enough time to get things right. Why, I ask myself, did I write a story that involves shooting at night and outdoors in the cold—my two least favorite things to do?

OK, went over my little head! :)

Rehi all,

I had the golden opportunity to roll some footage last night for a party sequence. OTOH, I finished the script today - it weighs in at a whopping 13 pages! Nutz, I hate carving up the story.

Are we allowed 5 minutes of story plus a tad extra for titles and trailer? (please) Maybe I'll make the actors talk as though they're from New York <wink>

Michael
Happy Trails, until we meet again

Wow Michael, 13 pages. That's impressive. I don't think I could come up with 13 pages worth of story. My gang is showing up in about an hour to shoot the 2 pages we wrote the other day. Hopefully the rain stops so we can do the outside stuff. Otherwise I don't know how many locations I'm going to be able to make my one house look like.

Smile,
Kris

Hi all,

Grumble grumble - well, I've edited down my submission from 15 minutes to 6 minutes. From here on, the content/continuity gets dicey.

What's the official rules on submissions that encroach on the time limit? Maybe tomorrow life will look fracking better!

Good night, Michael

Michael,

I hate to have to give you the bad news, but the time limit is just 5 minutes. Part of what the DVChallenge is supposed to teach us is to make short to the point movies. I went about 4 1/2 minutes once on a 3 minute time limit and got chewed out by several people.

So, it is five minutes, with maybe a few seconds of fudge time, plus your credits.

Get out the scissors!

Mike
