Wow. Thanks alot!

Thank you all for what you have done! I think you may have just took Meryem's roll of getting me back up on my feet. ;)

This is why I love this challenge... It can go from one thing, to the complete opposite -- thanks to the help of all the great people on this forum.

Kevin, wow, great ideas! Man, if you came up with those and offered them to me, then I can't wait to see what yours is. :)

Time to get out some cardboard and my pocket knife to start making a rig to protect my camera from all the dumb sprinkling thats been going on. its not raining, but its not dry either. I guess thats what I get for living in the NW, eh?

Thanks again to all of you! You have all really helped me out with this one!

Rob - thats some serious weather you are getting! Try not to get to soaked out there...

Bob - That sounds spectacular. I hope we get to see some of the footage here on DVinfo some time...
About four days before the challenge theme announcement, I just got back from the Olympic NW. I think we saw four or so waterfalls. One we walked out and practically touched. Well we were up there, we also rented a row boat and went out on the most beautiful lake I have ever seen (thats including pictures of them). You could see the bottom a good 50 feet from the rim.

Time to go get some footage! And oh yeah, I have a 50 gallon fish tank right next to my bed... Now why did I not think of that one before?

Good afternoon,

I must be lame. I got the password and such and I rtemember how to put the file on the page.

I just can't remember the exact url to get to the ftp page!!

I have mine finished, just need to download.

Ironicly I kept a note page but failed to write down the url!!

OK,

I think I got it myself. ftp://www.uwolchallenge.com

it appears to be downloading as I type this.


It might be good to make a sticky with simple instructions for first timers and the lame ducks like myself.

Dale,
You're not the only lame one out there. I have tried everything I could think of for two days to try to upload my entry. Nothing worked, including downloading a couple of free ftp clients. What finally worked (I think), was not to drag and drop the file, as in the official instructions, but to copy and paste it. If my entry appears in the next list, I was successful.
I agree, a "sticky" would be helpful.

Steve,

I to found that I had to cut and paste and I thought that was becasue I was working via a network of two computers.

Mine also hung up at the 10 second left mark for an hour or so. I was ready to start over when I glanced back at it and it was finished!! Ahhhh.

I now hope it is there!

So being patient was an understatement for myself.

One more idea. A study of water flowing from various faucets and hoses, or follow a certain quantity of water from the faucet and through the process of it being used in cooking something.

Anything to get an entry in.

Haha, yup! Thanks, Bruce!
I got some footage yesterday (or was it Friday)? Either way, I got some.. Last night I made the score for it. A little shorter then I would have liked, but it works.. Now today, I am going to work on editing.. I have some ideas that will look cool if dumb imovie will let me do it.

Now, is the deadline 12:00am Tuesday (the 24)? Or is it 12:00am Monday (the 23)? I have been thinking about this for the last couple of days, and I could not figure it out...
Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thank you in advance!

Talk about last minute..
~Gabriel

Gabriel,

Glad to hear you got some footage!

Here's a little teaser of some footage I shot just a couple minutes ago.

Wow! Thats beautiful Kevin!
Did you have to use a macro lens for that shot? Its nice and crisp looking on my screen/eyes.

Nope, no macro. Just regular lens.

Glad you liked it.

Hopefully I can start editing tonight!

Wow, thats impressive that you could do that without a macro. Pretty sweet!

I am done editing.. Now I am going to try and upload. I am also going to upload it to YouTube. I know most people on here say to never use youtube, but I for one like it. Its simple - easy to watch, easy to upload.

Time to close everything out. Wish me luck!

Too bad I have already uploaded my UC4 entry. This could have been a cool end sequence.
This sunset was shot yesterday evening, and I just had to share the view.
The colors are natural ("outdoor" white balance), no editing has been done.

Wow, Trond. Those are amazing colors.

You could always add it into your entry and then just add a "2" on the filename, then upload it again. I am pretty sure they accept it like that. You could ask any of "the three" if it could be done to it.

I uploaded my entry to the UWOL site. It says it worked. It looks like it did, but I am not sure. So I guess I'll just have to wait and find out! I got it up on youtube also.

Good luck everyone!
~Gabriel

Naw, I'll leave it as it is. (This is just a reminder to me that it is not always a good thing to upload as soon as the editing is done. We might get some nice shots just before deadline.)
Who knows, maybe next theme is "sunset", haha. Then I'll be prepaired.
But yeah, maybe I should upload some of it to youtube later.

Glad you got your entry done too, Gabriel.
