The second part of the contest will begin early next month. In this part, people will record audio parts for films. If you've made a film that you want to be included in the contest, you should post it here. You could even make a new film in the next few days and add it if you wanted, as long as it follows the original rules for Film Festival entries. The contest will be rating actor's performances, but all film authors will receive an amount of rank points based on how well actors in their films were rated. That system will be detailed later.

If you want your film to be used in this upcoming contest, it should be posted here with anyone-edit permissions by...

Local Time:09-05-2005 at 01:00 AM

You can update your hold and make as many revisions as you like, but in that case, just remove the attachment of your original post and add in the new one. In this way, there will always be one version of your hold available and confusion will be minimized. After the post deadline, we will freeze the holds so that no more revisions will be allowed. If you've got a working hold now, I recommend posting it here now regardless of whether you want to update it or not. This way we can quickly see what's available. Honestly, I think everyone who entered a film into the festival should be putting their film here in this post. There's no extra work for you (beyond making the post itself), and it's just a way of expressing consent to use your work.

I'm not going to describe the exact mechanics of how actors end up on different films yet, but it will work out such that one actor gets one film (he has to record all parts in the hold and edit them into the hold himself) and that probably every film will have parts recorded for it no matter what its popularity is. So don't feel that your film won't be chosen by actors, and it's pointless to enter it. No, the system I have in mind should put an actor on every film.

A few filmmakers in our last contest have learned a second language, English, at some point in their lives and that certainly is admirable. And they have a few glitches in their usage here and there. Actors will be allowed to make corrections to their spoken lines, whether it be to fix grammar or just to make lines that sound more natural to them. However, the text in the holds will be left as-is after the film submission deadline. So if an actor chooses to change his lines, then it won't match the original. And if the actor embellishes and rewrites too liberally, he might get some bad ratings from voters.

-Erik

If your hold requires a demo, then please attach it too.

One thing some of you guys might want to try--mark your demo so that it is shown from the title screen. Then when you export your hold, it will export the hold as well and everything will be in one neat little file. The viewer would then import the hold and choose "Watch Demo" from the title screen. Easy.

There's less than 2 days until the deadline for submitting films. Think how cool it will be to have people recording lines for your story! Maybe you've got a spare hour or so this weekend to put something together.

Also, I hope that everyone who already created a film for the Film Festival contest has had a chance to consider making their film available for the quickly approaching September contest.

I'm glad you posted your's, and we'll use it. Since posting your hold isn't part of the contest proper, I don't need to be terribly strict about the deadline here. But today I'll post the new contest announcement, and that will definitely be the end of allowing new holds. Probably we got everybody here that wanted to enter a hold now and it doesn't matter anyway.

I'm now locking this topic. No new films can be added or revisions to existing films made. If there is something really important to add/change, just e-mail me about it and we'll see what can be done.
