Can you set up a television with some bird food in front of it and entice the birds to look they are watching it?

I have a plot for my movie. I just need to work out a script and some lighting issues. I have been telling a story for a few years about something television related. If I can put that story on video, I'll have a shot.

I wonder if you shot the birds and had a monitor in front of the feeder if they would watch themselves eating?

That's a good question, Oscar. Dylan is in Las Vegas and might not check the forum for awhile.

Normally, he cuts off entries once the theme is announced; however, last Challenge he allowed late entries, and this time he didn't lock the sign-up thread. On the other hand (don't ya love it?), I think this is the largest number of people we've ever had sign up. So.....it's hard to say!

One last note to add to this nonsense: Dylan doesn't seem like a hard-and-fast-rule kind of guy, so I'd guess he'd tell you to join the fun.

If he doesn't answer your question by Monday, I'll ask him and try to post. Maybe you can just kind of half-brainstorm until then. :)

Lorinda saved you on a technicality. Normally I lock the sign-up thread and close entry, but forgot to this time.

So yes, you can still sign up. I'm going to leave entry totally open this time, just to see what happens.

TELEVISION? TELEVISION???? you've got to be kidding me. i'm in bhutan. there is no television! none! the internet is surprisingly accessible. cell phones are oddly ubiquitous, even in the truly remote locations. but only one state-sponsored television broadcast per day, so there's really not much television, and none at all where i am....

better hang me on the wall immediately.

That's easy. Just base your film on how your character is altered by the fact that they no longer have access to television.

Even worse if they were a TV addict!

Wow Meryem! That place sounds/looks wonderful (out side of the fact that there is no TV, but I think I could go without)!

Hmm, that will be a tough one. I think Fredrick and Mike both have a good concept for you! :-)

Hopefully you'll be able to bring back some footage to share if you don't make the challenge! :D


I think I am heading to the wall of shame right now....
