I'm out

I worked 32 hours this week, and had no time to develop a script and film anything. I've got a great storyline to work with, so I still plan on making the short film, obviously not for the contest.

I'll post it when it's done, :)

As always, I will be curious to see the total number of entries and compare that with the number of folks that couldn't quite drag it to the finish line (likely all for very good reasons mind you). I just like to see how big the competetive field is getting. It's grown with each DVC.

Happy to be here in the trench with all of you. And yes, everyone is a winner, even if DVC8 only got you out to shoot a few hours and you didn't quite finish. At least you got out and shot something. You might not have shot anything if it weren't for the DVCs.

That’s too bad, Andrew. Your movie “Speed Camera Kills” came up when Dylan, Bradley Marlow and I were chatting by the pool at NAB last month—something about that hilarious gremlin getting vaporized, etc. I was really looking forward to seeing another Andrew Paul movie! We'll see you next time. :)

Well, you've got company. At first I couldn't get actors, then about the time I was about to revise my idea so I could once again get in front of the camera and do it all myself I had an unwanted effect from some of the meds 3 docs have me on and couldn't do anything.

So I'm hangin' there right with you.

Like the line in the song says...

"So we tanned 'is hide, Clyde...
...And that's it a hangin' on the shed."

Shame on me!

Well as a first timer I should have finished my entry but this time it didn't work.
Too much things was coming up and the talents (the ducks) wasn't in the best mood!

Sorry guys, maybe next time...

I just realized I haven't said anything for days...haven't even been logged in, as it turns out. Must've cleaned out my cookies.

So I'm up here again, for the time being. Took me a week to come up with an idea, another couple days to get over my usual woe-is-me depression about not being able to get anything accomplished, even more to get some props and equipment, and when all was said and done, I didn't have time to finish what I'd wanted to. Around noon Monday I had an idea for a potential last minute substitute submission, and I managed to clean up my bedroom and shoot the entire thing before midnight. I cut it together, but the end result was way too dark. I'm used to getting acceptable results from this camera in low light, but I neglected to take into account how much is lost in the wide angle adapter; it looks better now that I've had a few days to separate myself from the footage, but the whole premise kinda sucked anyway, so no entry from me.

But all is not lost! I already own a previous generation Evolution 100 kit, so I'm not concerned about missing out on prizes (as usual, with some of these entries I wouldn't have stood a chance...real cops, even homicide detectives? How could I compete with that?), and I still plan to complete the movie. I've got my thirty-someodd yards of fabric, the thrift store suit jacket that doesn't button 'cause it's not my size, a thirteen dollar TV I got along with it, two brand new worklights, daylight bulbs for a couple of fluroescents my dad had lying around--from some ad agency in Manhattan that was moving out of their space in the late eighties, even with the bulbs they've got they don't flicker on camera, and there's no audible buzz--a few two by fours, eight cubic feet of play sand (it's white, for some reason, I've never seen that before), and permission to use the music I want. Can't let the musicians down, now can I? Here's hoping I get it done in the next week or two.

Sorry to hear so many of us didn't complete what we'd planned to, best of luck next time!

Yes, please get it done. I'm very curious now to see what you make from that relatively random list of stuff.

Smile,
