Re: How's it going?

Well done Chris. Really look forward to your entry after seeing some of your past films. Hopefully I'll be able to join you and the other finishers tomorrow!

I'll run it past Dylan and get back to you ASAP. Bottom line, nothing is really stopping you from using it but you may get docked by judges. But let's have a look. In the meantime think about the possibility of alluding to the same thing without actually showing it. You are a creative guy--there might be a way!
It's a few seconds of an interrupted footage of hiroshima bomb going off, some survivors and an American war plane. I'll try to send it. It's mixed in short bursrts togethet with my own material.

Re: How's it going?

You can hold off going to the trouble of sending the clip for now, Andris. I sent the explanation to Dylan and we will see what he says.

Re: How's it going?

Thanks, Lorinda!
In the mean time: I'm about half through the editing right now and I'm not quite sure yet what beast will be created. The material rearranges itself to its own flow. That's quite an interesting experience, not knowing what I will end up with.

Re: How's it going?

Well, guess I'm on the wall. Had a decent idea, shot a little, and then got caught up in the unfortunately necessary task of buying a new (ish) car to replace my old beater. Dang! I'm looking forward to seeing everybody else's entries...

And with that, our gallant leader rides away, forgetting to tell Andris that it will be fine for him to use the archival footage. *sigh* ;) Full steam ahead, Andris!

You guys are dropping like flies...hoping everyone else is getting close to being done--deadline is tomorrow night!

Re: How's it going?

Yay! I'm finished. I've no idea if anyone will understand it at all, but it's finished! I'll email the link. Please be gentle - I've never tried to make a film before. ;-)

I'm really looking forward to everyone else's efforts. When do we get to see all the other films?

Re: How's it going?

Looking forward to seeing your work, George!

As for me, I'm rendering the first version of the film right now. Quite a surreal take on the "instructional video" theme, but you already know me from other DVC entries, I guess.

Is this the same Dylan Cooper who said there was no excuse for anyone not doing this challenge? LOL. Why don't you make an instructional video on how to get off the wall of shame!

Cause I'm too busy making one on why I suck? :)


Lorinda, emailed you an answer already. ;)

I should post my script, but maybe I should just go ahead and make it anyway.
I think part of me thought that the challenge ended next weekend.

I know--just wanted to give you a little trouble. :)

Somehow I need to be told a challenge ends a week sooner than it does. I never get good ideas until my back is against the wall and it's too late to pull it off.
