Open theme?

Dylan, have you considered or would you consider having an "open theme" as the next DVC?

Where's the fun in that? I think it would kind of defeat the purpose of the challenge.

I agree with Chris, not much fun in having a comp where anyone can do whatever they want. Part of the fun is waiting for the theme and then having hardly any time to come up with an idea, shoot, edit and upload.

Yeah, me too. I haven't been involved with a DVC since #3 (I competed in 1, 2 & 3) and have only recently finally returned to the land of schedule sanity, so I fully intend to play in the next go 'round. If I begin to waffle as the due date approaches, Lorinda promised to guilt-trip me to keep me on point.

Hey! What happened to the picture of us in Eagle? Was it that bad?

Well, since I haven't been able to join the last two, I'm sort of anxious for the next one.

Although, if it's the last week of August or first week or so of September, I won't be able to make it again, unless the theme includes a C-Section (my wife will be delivering kid #2).

So, if we can keep it in July, that would be nice...

I'm freed up enough to do any time this summer. And after suffering my first wall of shame I'm eager to redeem myself.

Smile,
Kris

More thoughts on the open theme...

If people knew in advance it was an open theme, there would be nothing stopping them from shooting it a month early.

How about instead of an open theme, we do a 72 hour challenge? Thursday night to Sunday night?

Yee haw!!! Sounds like a blast. :)

Of course, it depends on which Thursday to Sunday; if it's the wrong one I might be singin' the blues...
