I decided to just disqualify myself from this contest, since some were saying that more serious competitors would scare everyone else off.Ah, but you see that's exactly what killed off the photo challenge on the other forum (or nearly did). You've told us - several times over - how your life is consumed by creating this kind of content, to the exclusion of just about everything else! So it's easy for you, surrounded as you are, by all your video resources, and being "in the groove" all day, every day.
It's quite a different situation for those of us who have other things going on in our lives, especially when those activities compete for the same resources or - worse still - when they make it impossible (or very undesirable) to bring the necessary resources into a different environment. Would you have let me borrow your Red camera to use while I was shifting 2-tonne tree-trunks with an excavator a few days ago, in the hope that I might catch sight of a wild pasta running across my path?
(No kidding: I haven't seen a piece of pasta of any kind in ... ... ... two, maybe three months, so were I to work around that theme, I'd first have to figure out how, when and where to get it - even for a still shot).
Anyway, here's the film I made for the contest. Since I decided not to enter, I just broke all the rules and did whatever.
Indietalk member Effectsworks worked with us on this one, creating the many unique sound effects heard throughout the film. It's a short demo film we made to build experience in the new system.
