2010 DVC/UWOL Charity Challenge - Sign Up!

Hey Everyone!

Dylan is slammed with work so I'm calling out all you narrative and wildlife filmmakers in DV Info land. Sign up now for our annual charity challenge!

On Thursday, Dec. 9, you'll be given the theme, then you will have until Sunday, Jan. 9, 2011 to submit your film.

Guidelines will be pretty much the same as they always are but we'll give specifics the day it starts (or sooner, if Dylan gets free). We'll also be talking about the donation pool--we want the winner to have lots of money to give to his or her favorite charity! You don't have to sign up to donate, and you don't have to donate to sign up. But you'll feel great if you do! :)

So sign up now and keep watching for more!!

I'm in with jingle bells on, Lorinda :) Really excited to be doing my first challenge with the VG10, especially after I had so much fun competing in DVC 19.

Now I just need to start second guessing the theme and writing tons of high concept existential sci-fi horror ;)

Count me in. The DVChallenge was fun. Let's see what happens when we mix it up with those bear-catchers over on UWOL.

So, what's already been done? "Cold" and "Gifts". So what are the possible themes for end-of-year DV capture that can straddle narrative and nature? "Red"? "Lights"? "Cheer"? "Snow"? "Aurora Borealis"?

Just remember -- some of us are sweltering under a hot sun and thinking more of beaches than blankets down here!

You're a lucky man Marc. London's just ground to a halt under a foot of snow!

Yeah, Henry, I'm reading about it: slow Eurostars, airports restricted, sounds awful. Here it's just so hot and steamy I could do with a blast of cool air (but maybe only for 15 mins or so).

Seriously thought about sitting this one out but some of your comments are making it irresistible! Sounds like great fun. I'm in. (Hearing those jingle bells from here, Henry!) :)

Are you kidding, Dale? You do great work! By the way, I'm thinking about trying my hand at a nature film for this one...unless it gets really cold outside, of course. :)

LOL! I would apologize for the behind-the-scenes arm-twisting but the challenge just doesn't seem right without you, Andrew. :)

Lorinda, "cold" is not a valid excuse for not trying a nature film. ;)
