UWOL 21 Entries - new link

The UWOL Vimeo Pro account provided by Chris Hurd allows for portfolios, which we will use to keep all the challenges separated. Here's the link for UWOL 21:

Also, Bill Thesken's video for UWOL 21: The Mighty Gregory By Bill Thesken On ExposureRoom

Re: UWOL 21 Entries - new link

Looks very good Lorinda!

Just a couple of comments:

The grey text is really nice but it is ultra pale - on my computer anyway - could you perhaps make it one shade darker as it is very difficult to read?

As this is an international challenge it might be nice to add the nationality of each player here - but especially the winning player's nationality - if possible.

Many thanks Lorinda - appreciate all your hard work.

Looks good, though the font is too light.
Do we upload videos direct to the vimeopro account?, and if you can send me that info I'll upload my video, don't want to be left out of this.

At the bottom of the page is a link that opens up the Vimeo Pro advertisement page and I think you can get rid of that by deleting this line in the HTML -

Thanks for the input, Marj and Bill! We'll get this thing sorted out one way or another. :) Sure, Bill, I'll email upload instructions.

Re: UWOL 21 Entries - new link

It would also be nice to include some form of the digital trophies that Mat Thompson came up with.

http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/uwol-cha...-trophies.html

Would need to change the Challenge number and possibly change the URL if the old website isn't going to be supported.

Also, how about a page for each contestant with links to all of their entries and some kind of profile similar to the featured film-makers on the old website?

I didn't say the uwolchallenge.com site wasn't going to be supported. What was determined earlier is that somehow links will be exchanged. Nothing can happen with the old site until Mat has some free time...which could be some time.

Great. Thanks. I'm glad to hear that. I think the uwolchallenge.com site serves an important function.

Digital trophies? Agreed!

By the way Lorinda, currently the UWOL vimeo account is as follows: http://vimeopro.com/user8310268

However it is easy enough to change the "user8310268" into something like "uwol" in the settings, just so it is more personalized.

Thanks,

Simon
