Yeah I have uploaded already. Send a message to Lorinda and she will send you the user name and password to access the UWOL Vimeo account. Uploading is simple enough, just a couple of clicks.

Re: Tales of the Wonders and Woes - UWOL 23

Splash! I'm out.

Have filmed only parts of what I needed, and what I have isn't enough to build a story around.
Better luck next time.

I look forward to see all the finished films!

Re: Tales of the Wonders and Woes - UWOL 23

Lorinda,

To bring up a perpetual question that I have never really seen answered. Does midnight July 5th mean the minute following 11:59 PM on July 4th (which it should be, according to universal time), or the minute following 11:59 PM on July 5th (which a lot of people assume it is)? Perhaps the deadline should read 11:59 PM, or 23:59. Anyway, if it is the former, should we be uploading our stories today?

This has been the common practice (and understanding?) so far during the previous challenges.
Based on that, you should be allowed to upload tomorrow (until 23.59 July 5)

Re: Tales of the Wonders and Woes - UWOL 23

Hi Steve,

Sorry I didn't read this sooner, but Trond is correct--everyone has until 11:59, their time, July 5 to get their entries submitted. I will change the rules to read 11:59 p.m. since military time drives me bonkers (although, even I can decipher 23:59). :)

Leave it to you to inadvertently point out a flaw in the rule, Owen. :) Seems to me that if the start date/time is Mountain Time, in order to be fair to everyone the end date/time needs to be the same; otherwise, our friends who are "ahead" of us get cheated out of some time. So, I think I'll change it to 12:59 p.m. Mountain Time.

Good idea Lorinda! I'm all for that solution.

Agreed! Now Aussies and New Zealanders won't be disadvantaged by almost a day. However it is a little more complicated to work out especially for those of us who don't have to adjust clocks for daylight saving. This might help though:

MST: Mountain Standard Time* (USA & Canada). What's the current time now? / MDT in Summer

Re: Tales of the Wonders and Woes - UWOL 23

As a result of the work I did up on the Nile River for this shoot, I managed to make some contacts with a crew that are working on a large project in the area. Going back up there to do some work with them; so that turned out nicely!

I'll be out of touch for a couple of days, so hopefully Lorinda will unlock my film when its time.

One last thing. I have noticed that Vimeos compression is introducing some sound distortion, especially in the second half of the film in the SD version. This distortion is not present in the HD version that I made (nor is it present in the master export on my computer). I have also noticed that the SD version is extremely soft (again this is not the case in the HD version).

I had filmed this in 1080p, but exported it for 720p for Vimeo. Usually the Vimeo compression does an ok job in reducing it down to SD, but it seems unacceptably bad this time.

So please please try to watch my video in 720p (just make sure that the blue "HD" icon is highlighted in the lower right side of the vimeo player).

Thanks, and good luck!

If you haven't left yet, Simon, go ahead and put up your feedback thread. Videos will be available for viewing a little later today! That goes for the rest of you, too!
