    Would I like an extension? Sure! And then 2 days from the NEW deadline, I’d probably find myself wishing for more time. The work will ALWAYS expand to fill the time alotted. Even though this is my first film and I could benefit from more time, I’m gonna say keep the deadline. 9 weeks seems like a long time… and I could spend less time doing a BUNCH of other things and more time on the movie.

    Also…. adrenaline is a great creative tool. Nothing like a looming deadline to help inspire and motivate.. just like in my college days 😆

    Part of the fun is working under the gun. Part of the reason for the contest in the first place is to create a little pressure, to coax a little more out of all of us.

    Ok gang? Less time bickering in the forums and more time shooting frames!

    A lot depends on how much of a stickler you want to be. There are arguments on both side of the issue, the rules are the rules.. on the other hand this IS supposed to be fun and a hobby, its not the olympics. Personally I could use the extra time to add polish, to extract the cheap scene I did in the interests of getting it done and put in a much better scene. If I don’t get it done for the contest I’ll do it for the general release.

    I think a 2 week extension is reasonable if a majority of the people feel they need it, I suspect the original date was simply “pulled from a hat” anyway based on assumptions of the amount of work needed and time most people have.

    You need to add another radio button on the poll.
    “I do not care as it does not effect me”.
    I would love to see the results, bt do not thinks it is fair as I am not
    involved (this time around).

    Having spent the last few weekends working full time on my entry to make sure it’s complete on time, I would say no.

    Besides, isn’t that the point of having a contest, to see who comes up with the best film in the time allotted.

    Perfect example, could not agree more.

    Planning, filming, script, size, editing all depends on this sort of stuff. When you decide to pull apart a complicated set to reuse some of the bricks, and in doing so decide NOT to film a scene due to the time limit it can become frustrating…

    I guess when I created this forum long ago I forget to set the permissions for it properly. Fixed now.

    So has the deadline been extended, or should I continue My “all Hours in the morning” animation ?
