36hr video contest – required elements

first of all i apologize for not being able to get this up and running on the church website, but hopefully this doesn’t throw your plans off too much. anyways here’s the info that i had planned to post on the church website.

for all the trouble i was having, and possibly the problem you’ve had trying to find this info, not only am i posting it a half hour earlier, but i’m also extending the deadline for turning in the video to 7:30am on Sunday morning. 🙂 (see aren’t i a nice guy).

have a great movie making experience!!

the following elements must be shown/represented in your movie in some way. they don’t necessarily have to be prominent, but they should be easily recognized by someone who’s looking for them.

in other words, for someone who doesn’t know about the required elements they shouldn’t think, “why in the world did they put that in their movie? that makes no sense. it seems out of place.”

but at the same time someone who is watching the movie should easily spot it and think it’s a natural part of the scene. some of these elements may be in the foreground or background of your video.

so without further adieu here are the 5 elements:

• the number: 633

• a pineapple

• a cowboy hat

• the phrases below must be spoken:

“are you talking to me?” AND “i sure wish i had a …”

• a shot of sunrise or a sunset

below you’ll find the rest of the details about the contest already given in the handout, or downloadable from the homepage before. they are here as a reference and reminder of what else is expected. there is one MAJOR adjustment to the details. you can now also give me the video in a Quicktime format on disc, flash drive usb stick, or simply upload the video to YouTube and send me the link.
