UWOL #8 Theme Announcement...Ch-ch-ch-changes!

Spring is in the air (uh, here in the lower half of the northwestern hemisphere, anyway...) and my thoughts turn to the ephemeral nature of things.

As the Earth turns inexorably on its axis, the seasons come and the seasons go (unless you're Brian McKay,...), dormant organisms are renewed, the squirrels are making babies in my attic....

Whoops, this is a family channel, never mind about the amorous squirrels, does anyone know a good roofer?

Ahem, as I was saying, the nature of Nature is change. As dawn turns into to day, as the caterpillar becomes the butterfly, as the lava becomes the land...

Oh cut out these ruminations and natterings and give us the theme already!

I could go on, but the theme is...

TRANSFORMATION

Good luck and get out there!

Deadline: April 21, midnight anywhere in the world

Talk about logging on at just the right moment to find out if the theme had been posted - was up for all of three minutes when I looked.

Nice theme Meryem - should be interesting because I'm wondering how much transformation we will see taking place within these next three weeks? mmm guess we're about to find out.

Come on be Good to Me

Meryem...come on just once, give me a break and by the way I already did a film titled Transformation....I think it was for the theme Water just use that one okay.

What the heck do I do with this one....Hmmm maybe film me pulling out my hair and having a break down will that be tranformation enough for you???

All fun aside nothing has changed up here since October...unless the change from inches of snow to feet makes a difference.....this will be difficult.

I did think about the plight of our Rankin Inlet player and how hard this would be for my pal Brian, locked in the everlasting snow, who already made a previous film using the theme title.

And all I can say to that is....

BOO HOO! pbbbbbt!

In addition to that sweet and loving suggestion, I would say that this would be an excellent time for you to do a film that is about the place where you live and the changes it has seen--talk to some of those native oldenheimers, if you know any, and get a glimpse of how modernization has changed the way they do things. The cultural anthro approach--my favorite entry of yours so far is still the borealis video, because it brings in those old legends.

You live in a place that no one knows a damn thing about (well, except that you people love your snowmobiles and beer), it is rife with opportunity. Rife, I tell ya! You're the international voice of your entire inlet! Whoa!

Good Morning,

Interesting theme!!! We still have lots of ice.

Good call meryem!!


Brian, maybe you are the transformation. You know, how you were before your 8 month winter, and how you are approaching the end!!! I think you could have fun with that one!! "this winter has 8 months" etc.

I am surre we will see some interesting stuff from everyone, Brian included!!!

This will certainly be a challenge in the land where seasons never change, but I'm excited anyway! It's a good topic, and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Good luck!

Excellent! I'm storyboarding this already.

The Irish Rainy Season runs from January to December, so if someone could arrange for a little sunshine (or even for a few dry hours) it might even work...!
