UWOL Sub-contest: Need a t-shirt slogan!

Mat, Kevin, and I are coming up pretty empty-handed trying to think of a brilliant t-shirt slogan! we have a few ideas but are opening it up to the group, to make sure that we get the best idea....

Our contest needs a clever t-shirt slogan, and we are but poor meagre video producers...(DV Challenge uses the brilliant, in my opinion, "cheaper than film school"--we need something that perfect!)

we need something short but sweet that captures the essence of UWOL...

and by "essence," i do NOT mean how we smell after 3 days of hiking through the open space to get the shot...

anyone have one? we have a list in progress, but if you can think of something clever, either post it here or hit me with an e-mail. if we use it, you get the t-shirt for free....

Rats, there goes my suggestion then (Stink or Swim).

how about something along the lines of:

We Cover More Ground

Go Outside And Start Shooting (or) Go Outside And Shoot Something

It's A Big World, Give It Your Best Shot

That's good suggestions, Chris.

How about "Work hard, produce quality" , or something like that.

Here's something which will probably seem really obscure to most everyone here, but I thought I'd throw it out anyway. The motivation for the "UWOL" in the forum title, Under Water - Over Land was inspired by a lyric from my favorite band of all time, Midnight Oil. It's from the first track of their album "Breathe" from 1996, a song called Underwater, and the first line sounds like it could apply to wildlife videographers although as I said it's quite an obscure reference... but kinda cool (to me, at least):

Scanning At The Blue Bended Headland.

Just had to put it out there. Okay, and now back to other suggestions which make more sense!

Slogan for UWOL

1) Natural Born Uwolers.
2) The original Under water - Over land.
3) It's time to think about Under water - Over land.
4) Uwol is my world.
5) Uwol - The Wildlife Video people.
6) With a name like uwol, it has to be good.
7) Don't play with fire, play with Uwol.
8) Where the hell is Under Water - Over Land?
9) The Spirit of Wildlife video challenge.
10) Wildlife video challenge, created by nature.

I just have to put this on as well :)
Nr 11) I lost weight with UWOL challenge.

Great suggestion, Greg! Plus now that you're
pointing it out, I like Meryem's a lot as well:

An Adventure In Your Own Back Yard

hm, forgot about that....

"Adventure in your own Backyard" isn't bad, but we don't want to promote any idea which would discourage geir from paddling all over norway in his red canoe...or per from schlepping 90 kilos of gear up a cliff...

keep em coming, though...a group brainstorm is always fun.

i am rather liking "stink or swim" but it is a little too insider--we want other people to be able to understand our mission as well...
