This can be interesting!

UWOL Rule #11 is valid folks, and should be strictly followed! :)

I feel the same way, Andris. At first I thought it sounded tough, then I decided it wouldn't be too bad; now I'm back to thinking it's really tough again. But I think that's supposed to be part of the challenge... :)

Hmm just found this thread and picked up a new camera. Sounds tempting. Lets see if I can convince my friend to jump in and then we can have a film!

Only a week, ah!

Lorinda, does this mean 5:00 or is 5:59 still valid?
I'm editing right now and would like to know if I need to walk over bones to shorten it by about 30s.
Not asking for any favour, just clarification - I can always cut it.
Thanks!

That's a good question, Andris. In the past Dylan has always said the credits could lengthen it another 20 or 30 seconds, so if you can pare it down that would be cool. Remember...it needs to be because of credits that it goes over 5 minutes. :)
