If you can't figure out how to do the credits with the NLE, just stand in front of the camera and hold up a sign!
lol! Chris, now that is a tale of wonder!

It'll be down to the wire for me.

Well, I went out and bought another hard drive to put all my footage on so I get get editing here in a bit.
I had backed everything up on data DVD's so now I have to transfer it all back to the new hard drive.

But, the great thing about this challenge is that I got out and shot something almost every day. Even when it was gloomy, I went out and shot something.
I've been out more in these past three weeks that I have in the past three months! :)
Now, if I can just get something together without embarrassing myself, I'll be all set. :)

Good to hear Kevin, I'm almost finished with my editing. It's late sunday evening here now and I have been sitting in front of my pc all day.
As you are telling this challenge has made me going out almost every day the last month just in case of something nice to shoot!

Hopefully the server is still going so my upload will go without any issues? I'll report back when mission is completed.

glad to hear that everyone is getting sufficiently cold, wet, and exhausted. as it should be!

per, the uploader seems to be working fine. just keep in mind that you should not multi-task on your computer. shut down other apps and don't surf the internet while the uploader is working, and it should be fine.

getting down to the wire, folks! get those entries in! tomorrow's your last chance!

Good to hear everyone is getting their films in! I am leaving here in a few minutes to head over to my dads work to upload the file. I tried doing it here, but then someone called (We have sun-rocket) and it broke the upload. So maybe I will have better luck there.

Don't give up like I did you guys! Something will work out, just keep trying!

Hi Gabriel, good to hear that you manage to get your film ready.

I just did a ftp with mine and it was delivered successfully! As Meryem is telling, you have to just wait for some time for the ftp to complete. Don't do anything when the file is uploading.
My file was approx 38MB and it took almost 10 min to upload.

Well, I've been trying for the last 4 hours to upload my video and it just won't take it. I have it compressed using the sorenson 3 codec at around 44 meg, but it's still a no go for some reason. The problem must be on my end, since no one else seems to be having this problem. I've posted it on the putfile site in a wmv format (less than half the size and much better quality...sorenson 3 looked like viewing thru a snowstorm). Maybe this will keep me out of the shark-tank...if not there's always next time. It was a lot of fun and I have learned a lot. Can't wait to see the others!

Here is the link to mine: http://media.putfile.com/Appalachian-Living-Skies

Good luck everyone.

What I learned on this one:

1. Birds go fast.

2. I need a field monitor, if I am going to try to follow birds in flight.

3. Wind creates vibration.

4. Birds won't stay put while you try to set up your camera.

5. It's cold out there in the winter, even in California.
