'Tis the season for DVC 15???

Yes--already!! We know…the forum is still warm from DVC 14, but it’s December and that means one thing here at the DVC: the annual Charity Challenge!

Every December Dylan likes to run the challenge, all the while taking donations that will be sent to the winner’s favorite charity. (Rumor has it that Dylan is partial to the hometown charities that help little kids in need.) You don’t have to sign up to send a donation, but the more films we have the more fun it is. And you get the added bonus of knowing that you’re making someone’s life a little happier and easier.

I think this would make the 4th Annual Charity DVC. Because it’s so close on the heels of the last one Dylan is thinking about an extended time period. Those details haven’t been worked out, though, because there’s one thing we want to know first:

How many of you are UP TO THE CHALLENGE??? :D

It's not so much a sign-up thread as just me fishin' but we could possibly turn it into one if we get enough folks here.

Well, this December is a very busy month for me (studies and filming), but I'll participate, if I have the time during the term of the charity challenge, it's a 50-50.

I'd do it

I was bummed to have to miss 14 so I'll definitely be up for doing 15. Might just be me and Blue, but that wouldn't be a first.

Hey, Kris! We missed you and would love to see what you an’ Blue do next.

I’m also loving the fact that you guys from last round are geared up again, and I would love to see some new faces, as well. Andris, you’re already one of the alumni. :)

What we’re kicking around is the idea of starting VERY soon—like next week, and giving everyone until Jan. 1 to submit. If we can get about a dozen or so folks to jump on board it might be enough to get Dylan to give us the go-ahead.

I am definitely interested. It seems that I miss every other one, so thanks for the heads up on this one Lorinda.

LOL! I believe you, Ken! :)

Well, there are eight of us so far....Hmm....

I know it's the busiest time of the year; I'm going to be cramming things in myself. But I think Dylan has a fun, albeit challenging theme in mind (challenging in my mind--you might think it's easy) plus it would be great for us to give a healthy donation to some needy and deserving charity.

For the rest of you out there, do I need to talk with Dylan about extending the time to Jan. 4? Include one more weekend?

Well. During this challenge I will be traveling Europe. So I hope it can help my theme :p. The more time I can secure during my travels the better. Hopefully I can find a decent connection to upload the video :p

I have to admit, I've got a couple of new shots in my head that I'd like to work into a DVC. I almost missed this thread since I usually give the forum a rest for a couple of weeks after a DVC (just to change things up a bit, you know?). But I think you could count me in.
