It should be really short, but would give us leeway to focus on production.

It would be fun to see 10 different shorts from the same script!

i like that idea

This is a good idea.... BUT! What if I have no actors and the script calls for more than 1 person to be in the short?

It may really hurt those of us with limited resources.

You guys should consider the Project Greenlight format of a general script with vast openness for interpretation. Although, if you do, you should change the dialogue so it's different, just keeping the format.

I attached it here. Just an idea. Anyway, good luck.

Naw, I think that limiting creativity is a cop out. Film making is an art with many angles, and many people of varying talents to contribute. Why discriminate against one side over the other... I think that to stifle creative writing is creating a curve to the advantage of those with the best equipment and physical resources.

Clever writing can often allow someone to make the most of what they have, through utilizing mental resources. I, for one, feel that my writing sets me apart from other film makers, aside from my eye for the lens and attention to detail, it's part of what I bring to the table... conversely, you might as well say that we all have to abide to the same shot list or storyboards. Where's the fun in that? My vote is for 100% original work.

So as it stands we have:

Mike Horrigan
Gunleik Groven
Nick Harris
Bob Thieda
Robert Martens
Chris Barcellos
Marlon Torres

Jeff are you interested in joining?

Since we're having trouble getting 10 people I'm going to say I'll announce the criteria for everything friday. So far keep these things in mind:

-films will be 3 minutes, not including end credits
-music must either be original or you have permission to use it
-this is about fun!

So tell your friends to come join in the fun.

Sounds good! Alex, you're submitting as well right? You didn't put your name on the list...

I was thinking about this the other day. I'm debating on wether or not the person who issues the criteria for the challenge should sit that one out. They are just for fun and learning, but at the same time the person who gives out the challenge has prior knowledge to what it will be. I'm not saying that people will try to cheat, I just don't think it's as fun when you don't have that sense of going into the unknown and coming out with a film a week (or more, or less) later.

What do you guys think?

Alex, I think you should be a part of it. Maybe we can have someone who can't be a part of it (like Jeff) come up with the theme.

It's all in good fun, and the more submissions we have... the better.

What do you say Jeff?

Mike

Do you think we would get more entries if we didn't start until the UWOL Challenge #1 ends on the 22nd?

Just a thought....

I'm anxious to start, but if it means more entrants, I could wait....
