I KNOW people are going to take the theme in the wrong direction, so just to clarify, cameras; not movies, not making movies, not video production. :)
Just being picky but it can involve just one camera to? Otherwise I need to scrap my ideas...

Cool? Yes. The part that will blow your mind is that if you have a reflection of yourself in the sphere and close the lid fast enough, your image will remain in the sphere forever...

Back to the script I haven't started...

Okay Sean, you're scaring me now. :)

Sean,
If your image is in that perfectly mirrored sphere forever it will never be in your movie because your camera can't catch it.

I applaud you all and look forward to the films. One day I might have the time and balls to enter but for now I appreciate your efforts from the sidelines. My movie would approach this from an .... well maybe someone will do that so I won't say.

Good luck to all of you!

Honestly you can do whatever you like with it, I'm just cautioning people that camera does not indicate movies nor video production specificaly.

This is a tough one. But I think I have an idea that could work... Interesting that under pressure you come up with a lot of creative ideas and the more contests the more creative you get. I am looking forward to see all contributions and my own is finished. A lot of hard work ahead...

Camera...

Phillip,

"Camera" is indeed something like in private, or "in the chamber" - since chamber is the original meaning of the word, a chamber where you trap the light expose it to film.

...from there on, it's just a bit of imagination to stretch Dylan's theme to chambers in general... :)

I'll probably stick with the original word, anyway.

Good lord, nanny-nanny-boo-boo? Who are you really?

So yes, yes I do have an idea so there mister smarty bottom.

All I can say is with a "Nanny-Nanny-Boo-Boo" taunting, it better be a good one mister. We don't take such challenges lightly here.

"Your father was a Hamster and your mother smelled of Elder Berries".

"Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time."

Back to my script.

Enjoy the weekend all,
Sean
