Contest #20...Open Genre
three things that must be found in the movie.
1) Prop - Phone
2) Foley - Sound of water (anything from water drops to a river/waterfall)
3) Character Action - Driving (anything from a bike, a car...to a firefighter toy car!)
1) Can't be longer than 5 minutes
2) Shouldn't be rated over PG-13, unless specifically mentioned in the contest's individual thread.
3) Video should be posted on vimeo official page ONLY. Videos for the current theme will not be available to view until the contest deadline > managed by Shigeta, creator of the official page.
4) The winner can enter the next competition. Their entry will be considered 'non competitive' to make it fair on others.
5) a) Use of copyrighted material/songs : as long as it's not the center point/plot of the story, it's allowed. Otherwise user will be disqualified. Example : the coca-cola can/SONY tv . somewhere in the movie isn't considered as a copyrighted infringement.
b) “Use of copyrighted music both in lyrics, score or performance, other than such that is recorded incidentally during normal filming, without a release will result in the video being disqualified. “
6) Entries must be made specifically for the theme submitted to, within the 2 weeks deadline. All entries made before the announcement of the theme will be disqualified.
Deadline: Midnight of Feb 27th wherever you happen to be in the world (For this one I'm making the deadline like they are specified for contests on dvinfo.net. It works for them and we can see how it works for us).
That gives all the rest of this weekend, 2 full weeks to shoot and edit, and included are the two FULL WEEKENDS for editing. Judging usually doesn't take too long once all entries are in.
Need two to three volunteers to judge. Please PM me so as to not "clutter" this thread up too much.
OK...Get rolling and HAVE SOME FUN!
