Theme

I traveled through the nights on horseback, my friends, with only a torch, and a sword at my side. The journey took me through a dark abyss I care not to speak of. But I emerged triumphant, a messenger from the King, bearing a gift that you await with great patience and fierce anticipation. As I dismount my traveling companion, step before you, and unravel the scroll…

(((trumpets blare)))

(((clearing my throat)))


Your theme is…

FACING THE TRUTH

Or

NOT FACING THE TRUTH


The King included a few reminders:

1. Brainstorm thoroughly. Do not settle for initial impressions. Dig deep.
2. Despite the apparent seriousness, do not ignore the comic possibilities.
3. Loose interpretations are fine. Anything to do with "THE TRUTH".
4. By all means, HAVE FUN!


GO!

AWESOME! Thanks, Alex.

That should help us all out a bit more...

I've already got an idea for mine, just not sure if I can get the manpower to pull it off.

*Fingers crossed*

I don't think I'll ever have any manpower...Cept me.

I've got a glimmering of an idea I might be able to pull off with just me, meself, and I, so if weather will co-operate a bit...

I'm HOPING to get this shot on Thursday. It all hinges on getting a few people to act in it. I did the last challenge by myself but I can't do that for the idea that I have for this one.

So.. when is this officially due? Sunday night? Monday morning?

Anyone else with any updates on how things are coming along?

Mike

Good question!

I actually took tomorrow, (Thursday), off work to try and shoot...
I've got an idea, a rough script and a location....still trying to figure out some props I need and lighting is an issue...

But...I haven't given up yet!! I'm working Friday and Saturday, but if I get it shot tomorrow, I'll edit on Sunday.

Thank God there is no football this weekend.

I'll be filming something tomorrow. I have a location, my Sister's trusty old camcorder, and a couple of friends who are going to try their hand at acting.

Lighting.... well... I'll have to make use out of what is available.

Good luck guys! Hope to see you at the finish...
