I too have mine parked out in the open. I just don't post the link here publicly. If folks wanted to see it bad enough they can research where I have consistently placed previous clips for judging. They won't because that defeats the purpose.

Mostly the not posting the links yet idea is pretty much, if I recall the conversations, to keep bandwidth usage clean until the judges can get to them. If I tell everyone I know where mine is stashed and it's on some sort of bandwidth metered site, the site may lock out my video till the end of the month and the judges might not get to see it.

I suppose the other ideas is so we don't get into the Hollywood vote soliciting they do out on the left coast by having our friends take out huge ads in Dylan's home town paper telling the world how great "Memories of a Dream" is. That is however a good idea.

"Dear Mr. Editor. I want to let you know about an amazing short film I just randomly saw yesterday by this great upcoming director in Columbus, Ohio..."

The original purpose of not disclosing your movies location was so that the judges could see it before your bandwidth was exausted. If they could not view it you weren't going to get any votes.

Even for this time, remember, you are going to have 30+ people who are going to "HAVE" to see it in order to vote. One entry, one vote.

My recommendation is if you are going to have to vote, because you are one of the people who turn in an entry, don't just view the movies------download them and save them all. You will have to view most more than once to decide and it will save you much time. No sense downloading it each time you need to view it.

I actually set my page up as a download page. I don't think it will actually play as streaming.

Yep. I didn't mention that but Mike is absolutly right. Besides, it makes a nice CDROM or DVD of eveeyones works, even if they are all in different formats.

Very close to posting the first batch. Should be up tomorrow morning. I'd rather post the movies from a Monday to a Friday, but I think if I wait to MOnday I'll have a mutiny on my hands. :)

Dylan, I'm the same way, usually, but what with the extenuating circumstances (your unfortunate flight experience), I think it'd be okay.

And I really don't think you'd have a mutiny on your hands unless--somebody had to find a way to say this, if it has to be me, so be it--some of the movies are rated "Arr!"

Man, my humor is so hip and cutting edge.

Okay, chekcing in. No movies posted yet. I had to break down on the whole integrity thing and went ahead and watched Sean's movie. But at least I will hold off on making comments until the film is officially posted.

Maybe...

Is there a reason why the movies aren't all released at the same time? Why are they released in batches, spaced days apart?

I know that I would find it easier to judge them fairly if I could watch them all in one sitting, but I won't be able to resist downloading the first postings when they appear...

Dylan?

Thanks,
Bill

Monday???? I think I'll have to check myself in to rehab by then. Just shooting the film I went though 2 bottles of wine, a bottle of scotch (that scene didn't make the cut), and a bottle of vodka. Of coarse I had help but that doesn't include editing, or composing the music. (note to self, don't have alcohol for a prop).
