Clarification of DVC Rules

Dylan:

The DVC rules clearly state that "YOUR FILM MUST BE ALL NEW MATERIAL." Now, supposing I were to shoot all new footage, not using any of the old footage or animations from Gardens of Tomorrow (GOT), would it be "legal" to create Part II of GOT?

I'd like to continue the story--and the challenge of learning more animation and green screen techniques. Also, I think it would be very interesting to see how the old theme of secrets would mesh with the soon-to-be-announced theme.

I have not signed up yet, but I'm on the fence and have dreams of green screening this weekend.

Jeff

Personally i dont see any problems, if its just a continuation, as long as the judges can understand it as just something by itself

Jeff, that's cool.

I for one would really like to see more of that story.

Okay, I guess I need to fall of the fence and turn my back on my regular work! Do I really need sleep?

Also depends on the new theme, it would be interesting to see how the storyline transfers to the new one.

1 more doubt

Dylan (et al)

Call me dumb, but I still have a simple doubt:

...are we ending the DVC3 deadline at 23:59:59 (just before midnight...) of which day? Thursday or Friday? Or, in other wording, can we deliver the goods on Friday night?

Cheers

Hugo

Hugo:

The official ending is Friday, September 16 at 23:59:59 PST. This means one second before Saturday. You must have not only posted your piece on a website by then, but also emailed Dylan the link.

Jeff, many thanks!

How's it going with GOT #2? I confess to being a fan of your first one.

Im late as hell, finished the script in the morning, will start shooting NOW. Unexpectedly, Ill be having a 2nd unit (using some very primitive means) for part of the footage, so I hope it helps the schedule.

Don't sweat it Hugo, I haven't even started. I am hoping to find time this afternoon to sit down to do a script and storyboard as well as find out if the actors I am hoping to use are up for it. I am only typing this now because I am waiting for a project due tomorrow morning to render a particular clip - so if I am able to produce what I have in my head for DVC 3 by Friday night, it will be pretty cool and a partial miracle.

oops, gotta go, render done. Back to work.

Thanks, Hugo! We're actually going to start shooting green screen in about 30 minutes. We are setting a slow pace so as not to kill ourselves in the heat.

For GOT2, the entire short will be shot in front of green screen--all 3 minutes and 59 seconds. Yes, we're taking all the time we can to push the story along. There will be more animations and some attempts at nested green screen composites. And of course the theme off "cameras" is key to this segment.

I'll let you know how the day turns out! I'm off to the set.
