DV challenge

Hey, I was just wondering how often you guys run the DV challenge. I've been excited to take a crack at another theme since the UWOL/DV charity challenge.

It's not a matter of getting up for it--we're always up for anything that's fun! It's more about waiting until there are a good number of contenders out there who are itching bad enough to complete a film. Show us 20-30 more guys like Ben and we'll run it! :)

Last year, counting the charity challenge in December we had three--one that started in April and another in September. Let me talk with the Big D and we'll see what's up for '10. Gotta consider Guy Cochran at dvcreators.net as well; he really went all out for the charity challenge and may enjoy having a little breather.

I'd be in if the timing were right. I missed most of last year for working on other kinds of project, but I miss the camaraderie of the DVChallenge.

Hey Kris! We've missed you, too!

Haven't talked with Dylan yet but what does early or mid-March look like to everyone schedule-wise?

March sounds good. By then I hope to have a Canon 7d! It would be a great chance to test it out.

Good Morning,

I believe I might actually have a new aquaintence in our little town that is interested enough to help out if I enter the dv challenge.

That being the case I think I will give the next dv challenge a go!!

Besides Chris is always encouraging us uwolers to join in.

I am getting cabin fever here, to much snow and cold and wind.

Sooner the better!

That will be great, Dale! We'll all have fun.

With the Olympics ready to roll in Dylan's home town we might not be setting a date for a while yet, but stay tuned...it will happen! :)

I've spoken with a couple of DVi sponsors who are anxious to throw in some choice prizes for the next round... so... keep me in the loop!
