Well, here's mine...

Meryem,

I haven't got a password to upload this to the UWOL site, unless I'm missing something.

But here is the youtube link.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTnzF4sMhPg

I must say, this was a Challenge. Shooting 'Living Skies' in January!!!

As you could expect, rain is prominently featured. In fact the title is 'Waiting for Rain'. There are 3 short scenes that were shot prior to this week.

I've got about 30 more hours before I leave, and of that I've got less than one to spare, so I may or may not get it up on the UWOL site.

Good luck to all.

Ken.

most of you should have, by now received a set of revised uploading instructions via e-mail.

i am still missing ten e-mail addresses. send those in folks (see the first post in this thread....), you know who your are....if you don't get me your e-mail, you may miss out on contest updates.


the following is a re-post of the e-mail which i just sent out re: uploading update....


We have a few revisions to our original uploading instructions. Thanks to the
amazing Mat Thompson, our website now has its own uploader. Check it out at:

http://www.uwolchallenge.com/uploader.php

I'll release the password one week from today, on Jan. 15, which gives you a
full week to load your videos. Submissions will close and the uploader will be
locked midday on January 22.

*IMPORTANT - in addition to our other aspect ratio parameters (Video size is
limited to 320 x 240 (4:3 aspect ratio) or 428 x 240 (16:9 widescreen), we also
have a new file size parameter. Submissions cannot exceed 50MB in file size.

Good luck!

Ok. I now have about a minute and a half of footage from one day of shooting for the contest. It is entirely possible that I may actually get my entry in and not be placed on the wall of shame on my first attempt. No fieldwork today as the skies are full of snow in northeast Tennessee. Thanks to this contest, now every bird I see in flight has a one story ranch house flying along beneath it just to make sure it's legal. Hope everyone is having some luck.

I have yet to shoot a single thing. Yesterday I charged my battery in hopes of shooting today. But it looks like there is going to be nothing but solid gray skys and some rain. Not to interesting.. It looks like there might be some sun coming out in the next few days. Unfortunately, its also going to be around 30 *F here. Not to fun... But hey, maybe I'll be able to slide my camera on a tripod over some ice, lol. Makes for a dolly shot!

I hope other people are having better luck!

Lucky you, Rick.
Over here in Norway we haven't seen snow yet (where I live on the west coast). It's raining and stormy weather, but I'm shooting through my window on some little fellows, eating from my bird feeder in my back yard :-) Hopefully the weather will change soon, and then I think...
I wish you good luck in this challenge.

I took a snapshot of this Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla).

Hope things improve for you guys soon. I know there isn't much you can do in stormy, wet weather. I took a chance yesterday. We had rain early and then clearing as a cold front blew in. I was a sight to see out on a little 12ft wide strip of land between two rivers trying to film vultures coming in to a roost in 30 mph gusts of wind. I was even laughing at myself. I did manage to get something though. Maybe with the time left I'll stay out of the "shark tank" of shame. Thanks for the reminder Mike. Here is a videograb of a vulture from yesterday:

Good luck folks.

yeah, from my painful experiences it's really hard to get a bird to do anything sensible (especially when the "rec" button is pressed)

I definitely don't have a problem with *quantity* of Raw footage.

However ...

Look!

Haven't seen this for several weeks but suddenly - there it was!
Manage to get some nice shoots tonight, not enough to complete the film, but luckily I'm on my way :-)

Nice picture and please send that yellow thing over to me :-)
By the way;
