How about using multiple proverbs in the same entry?

Ooh, I hope so. Mine will be about 15 seconds if I can’t.

How about using multiple proverbs in the same entry?

If they’re directly related to each other that would be OK. If they’re unrelated it would make the film seem disjointed instead of being a single, wisdom bestowing thought. “Brush your teeth twice a day” and “the early bird gets the worm” are both very useful bits of wisdom, but putting them together in the same film wouldn’t make sense.

A short poem would be OK too, so long as it was making one important point. A meaningful haiku might be a good route, though if I remember correctly, haiku’s are more descriptive than instructive.

I believe I am eligible since I wasn’t given any information on this contest before it was announced publicly. Looks like Custodial Pictures will be doing this one solo, though.

Hey Rev,

Could I use a fable for my entry? :)

The first two Diplomacy films as well as the Chicken Dance were made by Rev and I. They can be found at my website.

I’m guessing as long as it contains some type of “Words of Wisdom”, it would work.

If the fable lead to a “packagable” moral, one that was meaningful by itself, then a fable might be a very good way to go. I think Aesop always made a “moral statement” at the end of his fables, didn’t he? Boiled the whole thing down to one sentence.

Awesome! But I got a question, can we have 2 words of wisdom in the film? Or does it have to be only 1.
