Wow, my server keeps crashing. I sent the link to a bunch of friends and I don't think my site can handle it.

On a more positive note, the "premiere party" Tyler Baptist and I had went pretty well. He did a good job!

Good to hear everything is going so well for the most of you! I've not received
word that Dylan is back so I guess you will all have to wait a little more for
confirmation that your entry was received.

Well,
I´m officially glueing myself to the Wall Of Shame on this one.

From DVC#3 nominee to DVC#5 Wall Of Shamer... oh well.

My acting crew ran away on my last possible shooting weekend - this one. I was still trying to find a simple concept to shoot myself, but ended up too demoralized to do it. Lesson learned: get strong commitment from your actors beforehand. If needed, tie them up.

And don't wait for your or their lame excuses to trash the whole thing and do a "Plan B" flick as soon as possible.

Waiting for the next one.

Hugo

Finished! With 6 minutes to spare! I emailed the Hotmail address at 11:54 pm PST last night. It's a 15MB Quicktime -- I didn't have time to render another, lower res version. I was watching the rendering time for the whole last thirty minutes. The 'render time left' kept climbing, and I thought I wouldn't make it -- but when it hit the credits, the time suddenly dropped.

Now, I need sleep. Lots of sleep. Oh, and I still need to do my taxes. :)

Filed federal and state electronically from the "main" PC while the laptop, which is actually must faster, was crunching the final renders. It's parked in Windows Media format (Someone really should come up with a Linux Media Format just because) at about 16meg. It's native widescreen and looks decent for a 4+ minute piece.

For those that hit the wall, I was prepared to just shoot a minute of the city skyline reflected in a puddle with some nonsensical VO, which actually sounds like a strangely interesting idea. Would have kept you off the wall, but then, I suppose I appreciate, as will the judges, plowing through fluff pieces just to keep off the wall. It's a toss up.

I'm going to start a new thread and ask how many finished on this one. See another thread, appropriatly titled as such.
