A couple theme ideas:

1. Flowers (Non moving "wildlife")

2. History (historical events or places in your local area)

3. In the air

4. Bugs (Insects... or other bugs..)

Re: UWOL Fun shoot in June

Hi Trond:

Nice to see your enthusiasm carrying the day :)

How about this idea:

Since this is an unofficial round, how about relaxing all the rules and theme, except for rule #11 of course.

Why don't we post whatever work we feel like doing for feedback? That way, the length, credits, file size, content and everything about these entries can just be whatever they end up being for anyone who enters? Everyone can just do what the want to do.

I know that I have a "Foreword" section in the feature film that I'm working on that is going to open up the story in my film, that I would love to see what you guys think.

So as you say, this is my input and can be up for a vote along with the theme ideas of everyone else.

Hope all is well friend, and thanks for stepping up and taking the reigns on this one!

Re: UWOL Fun shoot in June

Catherine, I was trying to keep the uwolish style of it. (length and outdoors..)
But your idea sounds good to me, as long as Rule #11 is strictly followed at all times. :)
That is the main purpose of this unofficial round.

So, unless anyone objects (before Friday this week) the NEW RULES are:

#1: Have FUN!
#2: Upload to Vimeo and/or youtube
#3: Post your feedback thread as we use to.

Deadline to upload:
Sunday, July 3, midnight anywhere in the world.

Now, why are you still online? Get your gear and go out to film something!
Let the fun begin!

Re: UWOL Fun shoot in June

To be honest, even if you all are planning to do a fun shoot, you need to run it as a contest.

I don't mind people posting their periodic desire for feedback, if it is for a long-form film, but the place for general feedback is the regular "Under Water, Over Land" forum, not the contest forum.

I think it is important to hew to general UWOL guidelines, even for a fun shoot.

meanwhile, check out the project that Mat and I are working on together in Colorado - Mat crossed the pond to shoot some humans! so strange! it's fun to have him on my set.

That's a valid point, Meryem.
I guess that means we are now back to the original idea.

Anyone else have comments, ideas or theme suggestions?

Re: UWOL Fun shoot in June

A couple more theme ideas:

Colors

Manmade creations...
..
..


One note: The rules/deadline will be as specified in my original post!


Get ready, guys and girls. Since I'm the only one who has suggested themes so far, I will let the fun begin a day early so everyone can use all this weekend too.
The theme will be released within the next 9 hours, and will be randomly selected by one of the themes suggested here in this thread by the time the theme is released.

Remember, signup will remain open all the time, until deadline.

Re: UWOL Fun shoot in June

I have been unplugged for a bit, took a peak today and found this post.

I think "colors" is truly a fine universal theme anyone could do wherever and whatever season they are living in.

I thin holding to the standard rules is alright too.

Guess I will sign up for this one even though both of my cameras need to go out for repairs.

Thanks for undertaking the challenge.

Actually, colors covers bugs flowers , almost anything you want to do!!!

Dale
