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.
Sounds good!
Ha, wouldn't that be nice? :)

Thanks, so am I. ;)

I finished! Now I am compressing. It is a trial and error situation attempting to get as close to 60MB as possible without going over. I exported a Cineform Quicktime file that After Effects likes just fine.

The last challenge I didn't have enough footage to suit me. This time I could have used 20 minutes instead of 3.

I decided to go with multiple types of audio instead of the one I was originally going to use. When would it be better to use Handel's Water Music? But the price was a little steep for a challenge and it gave me a chance to use some SmartSound I hadn't used lately, as well as some Soundbooth scores.

As I write this my last export came out to 62MB so I am very close. I just want to get it done and submitted so I can export out to M2T and play it on the big screen HDTV.

Edit - It came out to 60,681K or 59.2MB - YES!!!!!! I see someone else is uploading at the same time as I am.

My file is only 18.4 MB... The first time it was like, 14 MB. lol. so I upped the audio and put the video to best looking. Turned out pretty nice. Its only one minute long tho. Thats probably why it is such a small file. It even looks good blown up. And the YouTube version is really good looking. Its like, watchable.

Best of luck everyone!

I just added the last shot to mine that I shot about ten minutes ago on my back deck. :)

Didn't turn out close to how I wanted it but my plate was pretty full so it was either this or the Shark Tank!

Haha, I know what you mean!
I had two choices, make something work thats not what I wanted, or the Shark Tank! Of course I don't want to be with the sharks, so I made it work. :)

Can't wait to see how yours turns out, Kevin! I'm looking forward to it.

Don't get to excited Gabriel.
I'm not even going to bother to make a feedback thread on this one.

Ah, come on! You got to have a feedback thread...

I was not really plaining on making one for the last uwol, but Chris (Barcellos) here, called me out to make one!

Its part of the challenge, don't ya think?
Get a few pointers here and there, its part of the fun!

If I'm not happy with it then no amount of hey, that was a cool shot is going to change that. :)

Didn't post a feedback thread for the first one either. :)

Kevin, don't judge your film too hard. Sometimes when we think our own film is "only crap", others can see how good it really is.
So bring your video, and be proud of what you got!

You know, at least in my opinion, the feedback is some of the best about this challenge. I have learned a lot from the feedback I get.

Kevin,

I reckon your UWOL #1 is one of the best to date, in terms of technical attributes, content and theme alignment/story (for want of a better phrase).

I was wondering what happened to your feedback thread in #1 - as I was really keen to read how others viewed your film.

Reckon you should include a thread...
