Deeper thoughts on the next DVC

Iffff we were to do a 72 hour DV Challenge, how many people would sign up?
I'd like to do one, but if there aren't enough people who are seriously interested, we could make it a "mini-challenge", maybe just 6 of us.

On the other hand, if everyone is itching to go on the full challenge, I could put one together to start at the end of July.

Thoughts?

I'd sure try a 72 hour challenge, partly because it sounds like lots of fun and partly because I would have to pass on a full challenge at the end of July.

Up the ante

Dylan,
If you are seriously considering making the next one a 72-hour bit, why not also consider upping the ante. Turn the next one into a "72-hour DVC Extreme".

Keep all the regular pertinent rules for the DVC.

Implement a 72-hour limit.

Impose the inclusion of a specific item or prop (specified at start time)

Impose the inclusion of a specific line of dialogue (specified at start time)

Allow for flexibility in the content run-time -(between 2 and 5 minutes)

-------------------

I wouldn't advise this structure for the standard DVCs, but one annual 'Extreme' version sounds like a lot of fun. I'd be in.

-Jon

You guys are twisting my arm...

Of course, it all depends on when the contest is scheduled.

It all depends on the weekend.

With my job, I'm on call every other week starting 8am Tues - 8am Tues.

If it lines up with a weekend I have off, that works for me. I'd sign up.

I can do it the weekend of the July 14th
I can't do it the weekend of July 21st.
I can do it the weekend of July 28th.
I can't do it the weekend of August 4th.

(This is what happens when your life falls apart and all that, and every other weekend becomes visitation...)

I would be in ... but I'm not afraid of the wall of shame - I've been there.

I would love to try and do another DVC.

Dylan-

I'm ready to get back into the DVC and a 72-hour challenge seems right. After all, the time limit will keep me away from doing VFX work, so I might actually get some sleep during those three days.

If you're planning for the end of July, I should be able to do it. If it is in August, I'll be out of town.

----

Ken-

I see you are from South Bend! Welcome to the DVi.

Thanks for the welcome, Jeff. I'm afraid I'm a South Bend lifer.

Go, IRISH!
