I like the sound of this challenge very much...excellent idea!

If things go well, I hope to have a new camera in February, so the timing is perfect.

The only thing I will miss, due to being open about our ideas, is the "surprise factor" we get with the shorts.

So count on me signing up.

That is, if you don't mind Meryem... ;)


Bob

I'm not sure how valid my input for this topic will be as I cant se myself being able to get involved much but I thought I should say that I would be all for taking part in a long film if I were able to.

Making 20 min-ish films for entry to festivals seems to be the logical next step for many people involved with UWOL. I'm itching to see what some of the Norwegians come up with on this one. I wouldnt be suprised if the odd victory speach needed preparing.

perhaps in a few years I'll get a chance to join in.

I'm sort of in the same boat, Peter.

The way I see it, a lot of people have been in UWOL since the beginning and are ready for a bigger challenge. Relative newcomers like myself find the prospect of a 20 minute film way top daunting right now, and need to spend longer cutting our teeth on the shorter films for the time being.

I won't be ready for a big film come January, but maybe the next year.

So you're saying that you're up for something that is hard and involves working with other humans? Great!

Glad to hear you chiming in, Peter, even if you can't play. We are always happy to hear from our UWOL gang, even when they can't play. And I'm sure the participants are always happy for any feedback, if you're so inclined. There are many ways to play, without signing up.

Mike, if I were you, I'd avoid phrases like "I'm sort of in the same boat as you, Peter" -- you might want to think twice before you get in a boat with that guy..."Another cup of tea, Mr. Joslin?" heh. ha. heheheh.

As long as I don't have to work with them face to face... ;)

meryem,

I think this is a grand idea. I will support it for certain. I evenhave a couple of great ideas to pursue. It is also great that you can select a topic within the uwol theme that you are fired up about!!!

there has been great stuff in the last two years but I suspect this will bring out even better work across the board!!!

Also: I think having Uwol shorts 4 times a year is a good idea.


I was hoping to not have to film in January this year!!!! the -25 to -40 stuff is just plain raw!!! And what to film at that time is always a difficult call.


Meryem, my entusiasm was waining a bit to be sure after 2 years, but this has my motor revving up for the challenge!!!

Time Frame

Meryem,


The 1 year time frame is perfect, it allows one to do things that change throughout the year. for those that do not require it it gives a lot more latitude when you shoot, great for shooting outside!!!

Well, that seals it for me. If we can suck Geir back into UWOL just by throwing a long-form party, then I'm sold! When do we start??

Just kidding. I'm still pondering, so keep the suggestions coming.

It was originally a boat....I'm not sure exactly what you could describe it as now....kindling perhaps.

I was hoping to get involved in this Decembers contest (Nick and I had a plan for suitably high tempo and exciting international whirlwind piece to celebrate the end of 2008) but it will have to wait for another time.
Till then I welcome the opportunity to play without playing.

Hi all,

Well done Meryem, I like the changes. Although I have been around since the start of the the UWOL forum, I have been unable to enter the competition because of the limited editing time I have for 9 months of the year. With the new 4 and one long comp plus a small lifestyle change for myself I will now have a chance to enter.

I will definitely keep up with the short films and am very interested in the longer format. I feel it's quite a big step up and it will be much more of a challenge. But, hey that's what it's all about.

Meryem, I like the idea of 4 short and one long. Like Per I would also like to see the time lenthened. I travel a lot so sometimes getting time home to video and edit can be touch and go. Bob
