Another film challenge from DVDA #2: Umbrella!

Just thought some filmmakers here would be interested in joining DVDA in another exercise. If anyone has any questions I'm always here. There's already some cross-pollination going on and I hope that it will continue and grow:

---
DVDA announces the second of our digital video moviemaking challenges: DVDA CHALLENGE #2: UMBRELLA is open to anyone. The first challenge: The Bathroom Movie, was a great starting point with a handful of rousing submissions (all linked in DVDA). The format of the second challenge follows the first: produce a 1-5 minute DV short using any methods available and post the results in the DVDA forum (a thread will be started once people are close to finishing).

The theme of DVDA Challenge #2 is: 'umbrella'. That is all.

You have until Oct. 25 to post a link to your movie in DVDA.

For those who might have missed it, Keith produced the best of the bunch in the first Challenge. Here is the link to the short that he produced:

Yes R/Kain's was very well done, I was remise to not mention it. Also worth looking at. Here is a link to R/Kain's work:

Those things were amazing indeed.... I might actually take up
this challenge (even though I have to plan my moving accross
the country etc.).... I'll see if I can fiddle it in somewhere in

be in Paris next week...

I have an image in my head of a classic gallic beauty waiting forlornly on a bridge. All the colours are muted, almost monochrome, except for the pastel colour of her umbrella, dipping sadly over her shoulder.

I had a couple of images on my mind too... with (wait for it) RAIN!
Ehehe... Will see what I can do. If I can't get it completed in time
I'll at least show what I've shot and such. It is a very busy time
atm for me though (have to go to paris for work and such).
But.......

Thanks!

Holy cow my vision of this project is way off base! I am working on a Yakuza Mafia fight thing. Now I just need to find the acting talent to help me pull this off.

Heh. To tell you the truth a fight scene is the first thing that came to mind.

I had a feeling that a few of us had similar visions of zannyness (is that a word?). Just think cars exploding, women and children running for their lives, and two Yakuza fighting to the death. All this done with under the DVDA umbrella motif. I wonder if the City of Houston would allow this to take place downtown.

"But officer I'm filming my next DVDA assignment. We didn't mean to burn down half of Houston."

Paul,
check out this link:

just in case you do film a yak scene, have your actors brush up on Yak-ese.

I found me a couple of interesting umbrella's! and now I'm waiting
for the rain... I got an idea so hopefully I'll have some time the
next weeks to shoot and edit some... I'll keep my fingers crossed
(or does this get me in trouble while operating my XL1-S?)

Note: DVDA does not endorse filmmakers charging at government installations with umbrellas lowered yelling: "Death to the western Satan!"
