Re: Tales of wonders and woe - charity challenge 2011

I have to throw in the towel, to put it that way
Storms and the flu has put me out completely
My work is half done, which may be completed later - who knows
The idea was to make a childrens TV show,
and the main characters was a cat and an otter, I say no more :)
Wish you all good luck

Re: Tales of wonders and woe - charity challenge 2011

Back to square 1 for me.
Filmed parts of my entry 2 weeks ago. Then storm, rain, more storm, heavy work load, and now even snow has prevented filming of the remaining shots.
Hopefully I can come up with a new idea real quick. If not, I'm out.

Re: Tales of wonders and woe - charity challenge 2011

I think I'm out too.
I have struggled like not time before with the theme, even had to read Wikipedia and watch Youtube, what is considered a tv show these days, because I don't have a tv.

During that struggle I came up with an idea for a very cool (subjectively of course) visual poem, that unfortunately doesn't have anything to do with the theme at all... :( It's more like Dante's Inferno, really).

So now I'm very excited about my idea and will film during the week. I'll try to find something to donate to the charity fund.

I also don't have a TV (I gave it up 4 years ago; though I still watch dvd's). But I thought this theme was pretty open to interpretation: I just thought about what kind of show I'd like to see on TV and then set out to make that show.

I just locked the final cut today. I might try to do a better sound edit if I find the time, and maybe do some color correction if there is a chance (but then again its a documentary - no need for color correction, right...)

I guess you could do even without footage in this case, just document the facts on a notepad :P

Yeah, but I'd write it on a white notepad, and then people would say it should have been a yellow notepad. So I'd still have to color correct it.....

Anyhow, I tried all of yesterday to upload the first cut to vimeo, but it took the whole day to do it because we are having very bad rolling power cuts here (the servers keep going down). Eventually I managed to upload it last night, but it took 8 hours and only finished at 2 in the morning.

I still might try to do a color graded cut with a better sound edit, but it looks unlikely I'll be able to upload that in time for the deadline; but at least I have the first cut as insurance....

Re: Tales of wonders and woe - charity challenge 2011

After reading other poster's tales, I feel I should share. I nearly threw in the towel myself. I even traveled to the Bahamas to shoot this "show" (and another show...). Then got back to do post and was so bored of it. So then I went to throw in the towel and out of nowhere the girlfriend intercepted me, tackled me to the floor WAIT that's a different story. All in all I only used aprx 30sec of that footage and started from scratch. I cannot wait to have it finished for all to see, and is easily one of my favorite projects I have ever done.

Re: Tales of wonders and woe - charity challenge 2011

Thank you for giving us one more week, now I will try the best I can to submit my video.
Really, this was a Christmas gift I like very much :)
Now I just have to get hold of the cat and get it to interact with its character.

Re: Tales of wonders and woe - charity challenge 2011

The extra week is a good thing. I see a tiny little hope I will manage to submit something after all.
In worst case, I'll just cut together a teaser or something like that.

So far I'm thinking this will be a kind of short/light version of a project I have been more or less planning for a couple years.

Re: Tales of wonders and woe - charity challenge 2011

The extra few days are needed over here -- if only to successfully upload the file. The internet in this place is throttled, and access to Vimeo is possible only in the most roundabout way to get by the censors. But it's on its way....
