THEME UWOL32 - December 2014

The moment you have been waiting for, has arrived.
Sign-up is now closed, and it is time to reveal the theme.

Once upon a time, it was believed the universe was made up by the 4 elements:
Water, Earth, Air and Fire.
So this time we are going back in time to make history.

Theme for UWOL 32: THE ELEMENTS

DEADLINE:

Upload instructions for Vimeo:
When players are getting ready for upload, send an email to uwol@dvinfo.net, and I'll reply asap with the username/password.

NOTICE:
The UWOL rules/guidelines is updated.

Some words of wisdom told me that this could have a religious interpretation today, and that was not intended when I came up with the theme.

Please disregard any religious and/or political references this paragraph might have!
"The Elements" can be widely interpreted.

Re: THEME UWOL32 - December 2014

What do you mean "Once upon a time"? The world IS made up of those four elements. The hundred plus
rest of them are bogus. Let simplicity rule!

Re: THEME UWOL32 - December 2014

Simple, huh? Well, in theory finishing this round should be elementary… Thanks, Trond!

Re: THEME UWOL32 - December 2014

I think the element in this round will be "pleasant surprise" when we all sit down in the new year to watch the many interpretations of the theme. I for one have already churned over several ideas and already my mind has wandered off in various directions. Thanks Trond for another great theme

Mick.

Re: THEME UWOL32 - December 2014

Interesting theme , surely one which may bring about colours from all the parts.

Mick,
As of now I have not been able to think of one idea:)

The thing I liked about the theme is that it leaves so much of room for individual interpretation , making it perspective driven challenge ,so we will get different perspectives from all parts of the world .

All the best to everyone

Best regards
vishal

Re: THEME UWOL32 - December 2014

I might have thought of of a lot of ideas, writing a story and filming to fit well !!!! Vishala, few years ago I spent a very magical time in Bandhavgarh, here is a clip from then
I'm sure your part of the world will give you plenty of inspiration.

Mick

Hi Trond

Just a quick question: Are you limiting us to those four elements or do other elements, like the elements found in the periodic table, also come ito it?

Re: THEME UWOL32 - December 2014

Actually - thinking about it - that was probably a silly question because the elements in the periodic table are found within those four elements. Anyway just checking because one idea I have includes some of those elements.

Re: THEME UWOL32 - December 2014

No silly questions! (But answers might be)

The idea was to have at least one of the 4 elements included... in one way or another.
The imagination is the limit.
