Dvc 6

I kind of got us off track with my personal message. It is surprising to me how many people have been touched with similar personal circumstances. I'm now hearing all kind of stories from friends and family. A lot of times, people just don't talk about that sort of stuff.

But anyways, I want to get the group focused back on DVC6. That's what I meant by dedicating my next short. My next short will be for the DV Challenge!

When is it going to be? I need somethign to do with my time. My vote for theme would be "loss!"

Dick

One of my favorite movie scenes is from "The Right Stuff", when Alan Shepperd (sp?) has just wet his space suit, and, if I recall right, Gordo Cooper says, lets quit screwing around and "light that candle". Same feeling about DVC 6. Let's light that candle !!

Thanks Rob!
Yup, I'm super swamped for the next 15 days finishing a project. I'm going to put a tentative start date of Thursday August 3rd. I'll probably just be getting back from NYC, and will have 2 free weeks to run DVC6, so it should be perfect.

This is NOT a sign up thread! Expect the real sign up thread by Monday, just want to talk to the sponsors about prizes.

Cheers!

Dylan

is it just me or or does the mind tend to shut down when the subject is announced? In the last two, I didn't get any ideas until well after the deadline.

I hate it when that happens! :)

Maybe you could brainstorm with someone. Or, I've talked with some people who look up the word (theme) in a dictionary and go from there. Personally, I think on it the night it's posted, then in the morning take a long, hot shower and relax. The two entries that have pleased me the most (well, disappointed me the least) came through that "plan of attack." :)

For DVC i looked up "Spirit." Nothing happened. I think my biggest problem is that I'm a night owl. It's tough to coordinate things and shoot at night. It's usually even tougher to wake up during the day. Hopefully this next contest will be a month long again. At least I had more ideas to shoot down last time.

It takes me at least a week to charge my batteries. 2 weeks to figure out what i'm going to do. 2 days to clean my lens's. 1 day to get my dolly rolling. 2 days to shoot. 2 days to edit. 2 days to re-shoot. 2 days to re-edit. 2 days to compress the video. 1 day for a wrap up party. 2 days of "boy I suck at video". and then 1 day to upload the video, re-edit, re-upload, figure out where on the web page the video should be.

I hope there's enough time for all of this.

If I planned on signing up for DVC6, I'd probably be around a computer in the next 36 hours.

Where can I find the rules and requirements for this competition? And will I be eligible to enter though I just joined DVinfo?

By the way, I guess I'm new here, so I'm Harris. Hello, everyone.

You sure can join in. The basic rules are about the same and check the posts in the DV challenge forum, then any special rules will be stated in the post which details the theme etc.

Just watch for the post,in "The DV Challenge (our semi-regular contest)"

There is actual a website just for the contest:

http://www.thedvchallenge.com

Good luck-----Mike

Dylan may indeed announce it in this thread, as he has posted to it, but the main post will be in another DV Challenge thread. A starter thead! Just watch for it, as it will be only a couple of weeks off. Dylan is the man, and runs this show, but he is very busy right now. I should be so lucky! I do hope I get one in this time!

Mike
