How's the progress?

How's everyone's progress coming? Do you have your idea yet? When will you start shooting?

I've got my idea. I'll need to order a couple things off eBay so I'll have to wait until they arrive to start shooting. In the meantime, I'm gonna get writing.

Got my idea, but thinking it's a little complicated now, so dunno what I'll do. Might be time for a rethink already :)

I spent today scouting locations. I think I walked 6 miles. I'm going to have to figure something out when I've actually got gear with me. I just hope next weekend is as nice as today was.

I've got two ideas so far, but don't yet know how to proceed. One is with myself as the only person in it, and I think that everyone is pretty tired of me already.

The other involves many others, and I don't know if I can get the cooperation I need. Not used to releases and all of that!

Good luck to all, let's make some kick-ass films!!!!-----Mike

This is my first DVC and I'm pumped! I've got the script done (such as it is for a 3-minute video), the music's already on track. The talent is out of town this weekend, but we'll start shooting next week sometime. I scouted the locations the evening the theme was announced. Got pictures to use as storyboards. A couple of places I'm not quite sure I can pull off.....but it is a "challenge," right?

Can't wait to get it all on tape and start editing!

Good luck, y'all!

Nothing... Inspiration has eluded me so far. Maybe I should start making up my excuse, just like Philip said. Or maybe something will come to me a few days before the deadline. This is usually what happens.

So far so nothing.

But for those of us who are clueless at the moment, wait 'til the last week and our backs are against the wall! We'll kick in gear then. (People like me shouldn't be given more than a week.)

For DVC2, I purposely waited until the afternoon the competition closed before beginning my short (Secret Confessions of a DVinfo Moderator), just to prove that you didn't need to go big with it.

HOWEVER.... Considering you are going to need to show us a lot of the sights of your city... You'd better not wait that long.

I may submit something from what I shoot in Africa. Don't worry, I can't win my own competition (or can I...;)

I've got an idea (sort of) and a friend who'll act in it, but I still need to make a script and set a shoot date.

Clueless in Stickville...my brain hurts.

However, considering Dylan DID also say "countryside"...there may be hope.
