It's all fun and games. I hope everyone knew I was joking. But that doesn't mean I don't take the DVC seriously though. I really put my blood and sweat into it. I like the longer mostly because I suck and the longer time allows me to suck, see it, and try to fix it. If it were shorter, I'd be afraid all I would offer would be suckiness. I don't do this for a living, I have a day job, so the only time I really have is the weekends to focus on the project. I skipped the previous two because I just couldn't pull it together in time. The longer time allowed me to try some things that I never would have if I only had a week. I really feel that trying things and having a look at the them and even having time to go back and rethink and shoot something is where I learned the most. Even then i still felt a time crunch. But that's just me, maybe no one else felt that way. whatever the time limit is, i'm afraid i'm addicted and I will be forced to participate. So if it's short and I suck, don't be too hard on me.

Hugh,
No sleep, sweating blood, wondering where the grip fell asleep this time, what happened to the dog for scene 3 (and why was his collar in that stew), "No, I said RED LIPSTICK, not DEAD CHICKENS!" - damn cell phones, "No sir, my credit card is not maxed out I paid that 27 cents last week...", what's that burning smell?

Yep, that's film making.

Oh Sean, that's filmmaking as well. I guess we all need things to go wrong. Gives us something amusing to write about after the movie is finished.

Meryem:

Do you mean an official "Help us Find Bradley Marlow" thread? It worked for Rick.

How many people do you guys generally use for a DVC production? Cast? Crew? I'll probably be hitting the record button and running into frame most of the time.

And what kind of equipment does everyone have? Budgets? Sets? Helicopters?

DVC5
Crew: 10 and 13 year-old daughters.
Talent (or nontalent): me
Gear: AG-DVC30, Rhode VideoMic, three 120 watt lights from Ace

I'll do the same this time around...only better. Hopefully, I learned something from the DVC5. :)

DVC5 for me
Crew: me and Mary
Talent: Mary and Blue
Gear: DVX100a, Steadicam Merlin, old Bogen still photo tripod, which was the only thing I had that would go low enough for dog's eye view.
Budget: $0 (I was planning on spending a little on the music but got a coupon in the mail that day. Seemed like an omen.)

Hoping to actually recruit a few more people for 6. At the very least a writer. I'm much better at execution than at coming up with a story.

Not only did Rob do his own thing but Bradley Marlow was a one man production studio and completed an awesomely beautiful movie.

My last, DV#5, was me only, camera with moves, acting, and all.
