A dv short challenge for honour and glory. Anyone interested?

Hey everyone!

I really like the ideas behind the DVC and UWOL and kudos to everyone who is organizing those events. But I hate waiting for a new challenge to come out. This is why I think doing challenges for honour, glory, and just plain bragging rights would be fun. Actually doing hands on work is the best way to learn more about your craft and that is the idea that drives this.

We could set it up so that different people will suggest a different challenge, be it a theme, prop, phrase, ect that must be included in the film. We could do this as often as we want or as little as we want.

You have this to gain: fun, experience, and maybe some honour.

So who's interested? If you have suggestions or ideas for this please post them.

I'm in... I suggest having at least two components for our first challenge. A basic theme and something else. Maybe a phrase, word, or prop.

I would also suggest keeping the time limit fairly low. Maybe 4 minutes including opening titles and credits. That might allow us to practice creating some fancy openings... :)

What does everyone think?

Mike

awsome, lets start as soon as possible.




Are we gonna follow any rules?, If we followed Dogme rules, it would be something that would pose a bit of a challenge to everyone. It will make things a bit more interesting.

Rules and basic concepts are good. Dogme can be one, even though it's more a production concept than anything else.

I think props and themes sound fun.

And veery short!

I'm going to say for the first one the time limit should be 3 minutes, excluding credits.

Cool, is there a set time for opening titles? Or does it matter? Or are opening titles included in the 3 minute limit?

Thanks,

Mike

I would suggest a week to ten days... to finish.
I would also suggest that we have a minimum of 10 people signed up before we announce a theme.

Alex...?

Agreed 10 people minimum. The first challenge will be a 10 day time frame.

Ok so if you want in on this one post a comment saying "i want in", post even if you have posted saying you're interested already it will be easier to track. Once we have 10 people I'll announce a theme to get us started. Then whoever wins this one will chose the criteria for the next one.
