However, if you were surfing the net and found the perfect screenplay, but it belongs to someone else, then that's no different than using music you don't have the rights to.

Thanks Pete, that's exactly it!

Hey, I've got at least 4 or 5 good ones I'm not going to use!
While my ideas may be expensive, I'll guarantee you that they will get you into the (ahem) judges top 10 choices at least! :)

Define Expensive... More than a loaf of bread? less than a bottle of cheap scotch?

Well, I have an idea anyway. Now if I can pull it off.

Funny how slow the posts to the other threads I watch get when the theme is announced! DEAD slow! Everyone still there?

Dylan, what kind of scotch was it you wanted to motorhome stocked with for NAB next year!?!?!?!? :)

Took me all day, but I've got it! A little more effects heavy than I would have preferred, perhaps, but since I won't take the CG route, it should be manageable. Simple backgrounds, tight shots, and as many physical props as I can manage, and I should be able to make this look the way I want it to.

Onward and upward, as they say! Hope everybody else is making headway.

I'm making very little headway?

The way I'm going, the sun is merely a symbol for something. Is that okay Dylan? Please, just yes or no... not "it's up to you!" that confuses me ;)

Well i've googled just about every variation on SUN. Even contemplated The Art of War by Sun Tze or however you spell it. I've gone through just about every sun God out there, Apollo is looking good cause I would get to wear a toga. Maybe I could even find a Goddess of dawn that I can chase around. The Inca Sun God is looking appealing because I can shoot some stuff where I pull out a beating heart.

Found a bunch of stupid Sun poems.

The sun rises, The sun sets
Will I be alive tomorrow, who's taking bets.

I thought of one where i'm on a horse in the desert, sun beating down. Will I survive??? Only problem is I don't have a horse and I'm not near the desert.

There is a 3k run next friday where everyone runs around central park in their underwear, maybe I could make that work with the sun theme somehow.

I even thought of dressing up like the sun, run around following someone dressed up like the moon.

I could go the Sean route and do a darker them like a vampire short where i can't see the sun but Sean is probably already in production for that.

Let me try googling Sun Backwards, NUS
