posting them to youtube vs releasing them for comments

I'm going to be done soon, maybe tonight. I'm wondering if there was ever a decision that resolved the dilemma of instant availability on youtube taking away the phased release that we usually do. Should I post it but not tag it until it shows up on Dylan's list?

Smile,
Kris

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

Get out the scissors!

Howdy Mike,

Thanks for the advise. No problemo - thinks look rosy this morning so I'll get out my creative juices along with the scissors. Ageed, it's hardly fair competition if some of us are allowed to skirt the contest rules...

Nurse: scalpel please! Michael

O000h, be careful with that scalpel! But, it is a good lesson in filmmaking.

Look forward to seeing your movie.

Mike

Ditto for yours, Mike - you've certainly paid your dues. I did whittle it down to 5:00 excluding header and credits so now I'm "streel legal" (aside from a few continuity bumps). The music is scored, so aside from the credit roll, adding a foley effect here and there, I'm getting close to leaving the launch pad.

Is the latest process, upload first - add tags when instructed by Dylan to do so? This being my first entry, I'm not sure of our latest instructions. Dylan's blog post was a bit fuzzy for my linear mind (...upload to YouTube adding a title that says "thedvchallenge.com presents" and list it with our Youtube account 'TheDVChallenge')

Thanks, Michael

Nice going, Kris! That’s got to feel pretty good…

I’ve got a ways to go on this one. When the guy with the property didn’t come through I had to scramble for a new location, and that threw off some of my plans. The extension Dylan gave us on days really saved my bacon this time!

Watching it unfold.

Hi all - just wanted to say I'm going to enjoy watching your contest unfold this weekend. Good luck to all! Maybe one day I'll enter.

Welcome Dave,

Great, we welcome your participation although it will hardly be a fair fight with us shooting against "Mr Glidecam" himself! BTW, again let me extend cudos on your "Ultimate Editor Shootout" - great job.

Warm Regards, Michael

Well, I'm supposed to start in about 3 hours! Fingers crossed, etc.

I tried an effect for one shot that looks like a 2-year-old did it on a Fisher-Price "Baby's First Editor".....

Hi Edward,

Not to worry - we can always add a dramatic sounds effect or music scores and all is forgiven with questionable video effects (pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...)

Except for the traditional disappearing act, I steered clear of SFX.

Good luck, Michael

LOL! Boy, can I relate! One of my friends won’t let me live down what he calls my “floating tiki bar” and the hands-from-nowhere in one of the other challenge movies. So, where can I find this FP editor? I may be interested… ;)

Oh, a Fisher-Price effects editor, that's what I need. Then maybe I'd stop re-writing my stories to avoid needing any.

But I'm done and staying done. Posted untagged to YouTube and it made my sisters laugh, so I'm calling it success.

Good luck everybody.

Ed,

Where do you get "Baby's FIrst Editor?" I tried Toys R Us, but they didn't carry it. My three year old may be a little old for it, but I'm still thinking she would enjoy one for Christmas.
