When is the next challenge?

Just curious...

When is DV7? How often do you do this?

Thanks,

Mike

Ahem. I dunno. Dylan seems to be pretty busy and on the road a lot this year with various projects, so I'm guessing it'll be a while. But if he's got the time, doing another one in time for Halloween would be great, eh? I think we missed that opportunity last year.

They're usually somewhere between two and three months apart. I have to confess that I'm selfishly hoping there isn't one at Halloween. I'm going to be gone Oct. 24-29!

Awesome... I'm actually hoping for a Halloween one myself. It's my favourite time of year!

Lorinda, if it is a "Halloween Challenge" maybe you could get it done before you leave.

I think I promised to announce something around the first of Oct. It would be typical of me to do a Halloween related one, starting Oct. 31st or so.
But then by the time it wrapped up we'd be into December, and then wouldn't really be able to do the holiday charity version we did last year (which I quite enjoyed.)

That's what is going through my head, but certainly open to suggestions.

Could we do something shorter for Halloween? Like, lets all do a 30 second commercial for some type of monster be gone product, best ad wins?

Or... best scary scene... you've got 30 seconds to 1 minute to capture it.

Although the 30 second "monster be gone" ad could be funny...

well we could do a halloween thingy and donate the money for a Thanksgiving charity. Or just hold the money for later. Or just do a Holiday one. That's all my brain could come up with right now. Oh wait.... nope, just a brain fart.

If we do something Halloween-based, I think it would be cool to have us shoot in the middle of October so we could actually be watching all of the films the week of Halloween. It would be a bummer to have to watch a bunch of Halloween stuff in the middle of November. :)

Just my 2 cents,
Bill

Like Bill said. his two cents, so I'd throw in my 3 cents, first thing, the theme.

Okay, so like horror is a first choice, Halloween and all that.

But what if, what if we decided to have NO special effects.
(Some of us don't know how to use the competer that well and don't have after effects).

And what it, what if, we didn' tmake all that cinematography and THEME thing all that important. Instead, instead we give it a SOUTHERN theme, yeah, an exploration of Southern culture, and then we rate ACTING skill.
I mean, if you have really good acting, do you need a strong story?
Do you really need good lighting and audio if the actors are the BOMB.

JUst some of my current lucid thinking...

Hmm... Good idea, but instead let's make it a VANCOUVER theme... :)
