DVC 7 Official Sign Up Thread!

Ok wannabe rockstars, it's time to step up.

This is the sign up thread for DVC7. By now you know the rules. For those who weren't around last holiday season, we are again running the December edition of The DV Challenge as a charity event. Every other time, it is free to sign up for The DVC. This time, well, it's still free, but with a healthy dose of guilt by yours truly to donate to our charity pool. Last year we raised over $500 which goes to the charity of the winner's choice. Lorinda Norton took that last year and gave it to great cause (Hey Lorinda, want to chime in and give me the exact number?). This year, I'm hoping we can match or beat that number. As well as feeling good about donating, you will also get your name highlighted in our winners thread, so you can brag about it later.

A few things will change on this challenge, one time only!
1) You can join in even AFTER the theme has been posted!
2) The time limit will be more flexible.
3) The rules on using previously shot footage will be waived!
4) Possibly one other one will be changed, but I'm not telling which.

START TIME:
The theme will be announced THIS THURSDAY NIGHT! That's right, I'm giving you as much time as possible, not that you need more than a day, but schedules and all around this time of year make it tough for some... Remember you can still sign up even if you are reading this after the start time!
FINISH LINE:
Sunday, December 17th, midnight, your must have emailed me the link to your online entry!

Donate to:
Please donate when you sign up, not when you (cough) win...
Paypal is the method of choice! I'll be using the same account this year as I did last: the_klenzer@hotmail.com
I will be posting names of who donates as we go!

And we're off!

It was $525. Sure would be cool to meet or surpass that amount this time around!

Ok I have one question before I sign up. How long can the video be? Or do you not say until you announce the theme?
Sorry, this is my first time at the DVC so I do not know much about it.

3 Minutes I believe.

But they say that they normally give 10-20 seconds in case you have run over.

Probably 3 minutes, if like the past. We had one with 5 minute limit.
