DV Challenge #8 - Finalists

Saddle up boys and girls, here comes the rodeo!

Ok, pep talk time... In my opinion, everyone who submits a film is a finalist. The challenge is to get a movie finished in a week (this time in two), so just getting it done is a victory in it's own. Let's face it, talk is cheap and signing up is free, so actually going through with it is the big step, regardless of who wins. So here's to you guys and gals!

DV Challenge #8 Prize! Don't forget, you don't just win glory, you win GEAR! GOOD GEAR!
A huge thanks to Guy Cochran at www.dvestore.com for putting up another killer prize. This time the winner gets his or her hands on a new Sennheiser G2 wireless mic system.

Next, thanks to Chris Hurd for running the best damn video forum on the web!
Also big thanks to Pete Bauer for maintaining the DVC website. Thanks Pete!

I'll be posting five a day, starting Monday. Remember, if you submitted a film, you are a judge! Your top three choices must be submitted after I post the last batch on Friday, and by Sunday night at latest. I will post the winner the following Monday!

Again, congrats to all who submitted a film!

So, let's start with a special entry! Unfortunately, it isn't eligible for winning due to a batch of reasons, mainly because it was co-produced by me... so:

And that concludes the DVC8 films!

You now have until Sunday night to watch all of these films and email me with your top three choices (see the thread on judging). I will post the winner Monday morning. Have fun!

Well, it's been one interesting competition! I've quite enjoyed the various uses of televisions in your film, from dinners, to babies, to plates for bread, it's been unique, and one of my favorite themes so far.

And now it's all wrapped up. The votes are in. The winner is chosen. The super hot Sennheiser G2 Wireless system provided by our sponsor Guy Cochran at www.dvestore.com is sitting ready to go to a new home. Thanks Guy, we really appreciate you and dvestore.com backing us up since the beginning. It sure makes it more fun when there's something to battle for!

Thanks to Chris Hurd for being Chris Hurd and keeping this forum the best damn video forum on the internet. Thanks to Pete Bauer for the upcoming website update (guess I'd better email it to you Pete :)

And next, thanks to everyone who signed up, dropped out, and ended up on the Wall Of Shame. Have I got the competition for you... DVC9 is going to be your type of challenge!

And finally, thanks to everyone who submitted a film. In my mind, you are all winners. Of course, there can be only one... So...

Honorable Mentions
I usually post the names of the films that scored a significant amount of votes, even though they weren't in the top three. These are usually films that got 3 or 4 votes, regardless of the total points. While almost all films score at least a vote or two, getting four is significant enough to warrent a nod, so in no particular order, congrats to:
Sean McHenry "The Lottery"
Darryl Ahye "CONTROL"
Bryan Wilkat “Wolves”
Lorinda Norton "Techno Dad TechNO Mom"
Phillip Jackson "Zombie Killer 2 - Telezombies"
Brent Graham "The Green Pixels"

You guys did well, and could have been contenders.. could have been somebodies... Like these next guys!

DVC8 RUNNERS UP
Runners, as in plural, as in two. Why? Because there was a tie for 2nd place.

Congrats to:
Jeff Hendricks “Experience Vision"
and
Bill Gardner "The Remote = Control"

Nice work! Share your runner up duties generously, ok?
Jeff, good film, out of the box use of the theme, nicely done!
Bill, isn't that two 2nd places, a win and a 4th within the last 4 challenges? Wow!


And now...


What you've all been waiting for...


THE WINNER OF DV CHALLENGE #8 IS....

Hugh DiMauro "Fictional Reality"


Nicely done Hugh! You've been a regular here since the early days, and the hard work paid off. Great cinematography, interesting story (wanted more!) good actors. Two thumbs up, and the votes reflected it in a landslide win. Email me your address and I'll get dvestore.com to get your prize on the way!


And that ladies and gentlemen, is a wrap. Look for DVC 9 to happen mid-summer. I will be putting the *challenge* back in The DV Challenge.
