Good luck to all of the uwolcontestants that made it this round!

OK, i'm swimming too.
I had to take a bath anyway :/

I have made my PSA, and will be making a 1 min or so for NOF (Norwegian Ornithological Society or Birdlife Norway if you like) Norsk ornitologisk forening
Though I'm doing this for free, I look at NOF as my customer and I want to do the best way I can, and will use some scenes from earlier sessions. So I will be working on my PSA a bit more. The PSA will be shown on national TV2 on Christmas day and the 1 min will be on their web as soon as it's finished.

All the best and good luck to everyone.

PS
Hi Meryem, though I'm in the tank I still think the uwolX theme is great (just as you know).

Geir, not you too?
"Team Norway" is seriously taking a big swim this round, hehe.

Nice to hear you still have a great project to work on.
I'll watch tv Christmas day for sure :)
(You might have to remind us of that one)

Chris:

That was hysterical! Nicely done! Nothing like making a great movie about not getting a movie in!

Marj:

Thanks for the vote of confidence friend but a 30 sec spot is a very big challenge (good editing skills or not)! I entered a contest this year to make a commercial on a political candidate and boy, to be thoughtful, moving and compelling in 26 seconds is a tough one! I really liked what I came up with (still do) but it ranked in the 58% out of 1500 entries.

Meryem, great pick on a challenging topic. If one can produce something really good in 30 seconds they are half way there to being tops!

All the best to the few brave souls remaining who haven't dipped their toes in the water this round!

Well, we never even broke out the camera yet on my project.
Things tend to move slowly the more people you have involved.
We have a writer on board now that is working on the script.
Hopefully we'll be able to film in the Fall.

But, it's been a heck of a ride. Soon to be ex-business partner is most likely sitting in jail. Camera is on it's way back to her so I'm SOL until my new camera gets here hopefully sometime in September but I've been hearing it may not be till October.

Kevin I hear you.

I did about 80% of my filming yesterday after a botched attempt a couple of weeks ago. It's tough when most of the scheduling is out of your hands.

I call myself lucky for even being able to get what I did.

Well i'd hate to admit defeat, but it looks like i'm joining all you fine people here in the shark tank for the second round in a row. Gee, i hope next round has something to do with water, i feel all this experience in the tank should provide me with some material to work with! :) It sounds like there were a few that managed to get their PSA done though. Well done to them, i look forward to seeing them.

Bryce.

Well, folks...

I guess this one was jinxed from the start. I had a series of classes to teach and then several weeks ago I did some unwise lifting and overstressed the lower back.

Couldn't even hobble over to the shark tank.

At my age recovery is going to take a while, doc says minimum of 8 weeks to go maybe more. So it looks like I'm going to be out of the UWOL game for awhile.

Y'all have fun.
