How about instead of an open theme, we do a 72 hour challenge? Thursday night to Sunday night?
I'll let you know after I finish a 48 hour one this weekend, starting this evening...... scares me.....

It all depends on which weekend it is... if it's the next weekend my short will only be about drunk swedes singing silly songs, dancing around and generally just making a fool of themselves... i e we are celebrating midsummer and it's always a big party. :)

But the first 2-3 weekends in july would be ok I think.

hmmmmm .... open theme, problem with this is that people may use footage they have already shot and edited, making it a bit unfair, especially if it is a 3 day competition. Not that I want to say any one would cheat of course, just a small observation on my part.

Be it, open theme or themed, I am ready for the next one ....
