The moment you have waited for has arrived. Let the fun begin!

It is almost 10 years since the very first challenge, and this must of course be celebrated with number 40.

Theme: VIRTUAL POSTCARD
(As always, your imagination is the limit for how you interpret the theme)

Deadline: October 31, 2016. Midnight wherever you are.


Upload details for the UWOL Vimeo page:
Request by sending an email to uwol@dvinfo.net

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Wow. I tip my hat to you, Trond, my friend. I’ll admit that these UWOL themes often leave me struggling to figure out an “angle”. I’m not sure I even understand the concept of “virtual postcards”. (Oh, I know all about those internet “thingies”, I can just never understand why people rush to indulge in such pretentious silliness…) A quick Google search has left me more than confused. This time you have not just kicked me outside of the box, you have catapulted me so far outside that I can no longer even pretend that I can still see the box. This is good. I love it! Thank-you, sir!!

Haha, then my mission must be acomplished, Mike.
The imagination is the limit for how the results turn out.

Whatever you do, always follow rule 11! :)

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

I look at it as a showcase of something or someplace.

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

Thanks, Kevin, that helps. Speaking of virtualness (is that even a word?), I hope you folks heading for Bristol might consider setting up a group Skype at some point so those of us stuck in the homeland might be able to do a virtual visit. Just a thought.

Edit: Should have said homelands!

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

Mike,
I'm planning on taking a camera and shooting a lot of video and photos.
We'll have to see if we can go live on the UWOL Facebook page that way anyone that misses a skype if we can pull it off can watch.

We'I'll be there Saturday morning so I'll probably be doing some updates before anyone else gets there

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

Yes, we'll see what we can do while we are in Bristol.

But please keep this thread for uwol 40 only.
Bristol events can be discussed in the get together thread.

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

This theme is like those Interview question , where if the Interviewee says "good question" it may actually mean he/she doesn't have the answer at top of their mind at that moment :)

Virtual postcard hmmm a idea which has just crossed my mind is sending a Virtual post card to all UWOLers who would miss Bristol and try and make a small film about that event - Wildscreen. May be that can be termed as a Virtual postcard, i dont know yet but it came as a thought Let me see if i can execute it.
Or even think of something else

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

Hi, need confirmation of the rules. Is this a purely a documentary competition? Or can we produce short fiction films (script not voice over) based around facts or on a true story? Cheers

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

The UWOL rules do not specifically limit the films to documentary style, even though throughout UWOL history, almost everyone has made and prefer that type of films.
The goal/purpose of UWOL has always been to encourage people to get out in the nature, and push themselves to become better outdoors film makers.
Fiction can also be made under water or over land.

Therefore, fiction is allowed.

Re: UWOL 40 - Theme release

If you think you may be able to submit, but haven't requested the upload details for vimeo yet, hurry up!
Deadline is coming closer, but still many hours to make your postcards.
