So, does that mean you're offering to capture them all and upload them for viewing? :)

I know I don't want to have to set up a VCR and capture a VHS tape on digital and then capture that and then compress it and then upload it.

Heck, I won't even dump my own stuff TO a VHS tape let alone go the other way with it. :)

steve, the reason that most film fests offer the option of mailing in hard copies is that these artifacts mirror the final delivery form. our final delivery form is the web, not an audience sitting together in a dark room. transcoding and uploading DVDs and VHS tapes is potentially a mountain of work.

we're working to make this as user-friendly and simple as possible, to wade our way through the layers of competing platforms and codecs, so that as many players as possible can compete and as many viewers as possible can view.

if you need help figuring out delivery, we can probably give you some assistance when the time comes. i would love to see some of your work and hope you can sign up for one of these.

You thought I was serious! I knew that no one else would go for it and I certainly wouldn't even joke about using VHS. I have too many painful memories of seeing my best work reduced to that format (and shown on a 15-year old TV with only an RF input).

Just out my most recent experience with DVC7, on the PC side, I got great results using Vegas 7 and rendering to the Quicktime presets. I did two Quicktime files, one low, and one high. I also did two Windows Media files low and high, and all came out well from the Vegas preset renders.

LOL, this could be a future topic in the UWOL-challenge: The treetop people!

that would be fun, for a lark, "local mythological beasts"--i can't think of any in colorado, but new mexico is loaded with them. aliens, chupacabra, etc.

or how about one on local extinct species. we may not get any actual footage, but the stories of trying to locate them would probably be quite interesting.

around here, the abert's squirrel, a black squirrel with pointy spock ears, which i saw commonly throughout the 1980s, all but disappeared as a result of plague, according to local rangers. but about two years ago, i started seeing them again, and now there's a little population explosion happening.

Progress Update!

omigosh!

mat thompson rocks! he has designed us a fabulous logo for the UWOL Challenge!

you WILL want a t-shirt! (no, they're not available yet. we need to run one of these first....)

kevin and mat are knocking out a website where we will upload our videos, and if the logo is any indicator, it's gonna be great. huge props to both those guys....

the sign-up thread is going up this friday, giving everyone a little extra time to get on board because of the holidays.

January 1 the theme will be announced and the contest kicks off.

start warming up those cameras and booking those travel arrangements....

I think this is a good idea. I'm relatively new to underwater video but hope to meet like minded idiots who don't mind freezing their butts off to get some good footage (grin) and learn from them.

Steve

PS: Wreck diving in the UK is definately freezing.

I was wondering when aliens were going to get in here. (grin)

I totally agree. So many forums and threads get hijacked by people with an axe to grind that it's difficult to find the good info. I'm just starting to do my own editing and got myself a CoreDuo iMac 20 with Final Cut Studion and it's added completely new scope to my video shooting.
