Gotta go read Proverbs now…

Thanks for the idea. I was wondering where to come up with my “Wisdom” quote from.

Nice comp Revmen. This is going to be a lot of fun!

You know, I was thinking today about a title for my film, and while I haven’t picked one yet, there are only so many names that have “Proverb” in them. What do you guys think about informing the rest of us about the names you choose so we don’t get repeats? It would be confusing to have more than one APIB. Or ABP.

What do you think, just so we all get something different? Or maybe that doesn’t matter. Input?

No, I think it’s not a good idea to share which proverbs have been picked. We want true, unadulterated creativity! I don’t think the titles are an issue, I doubt most people will name their films something like A Proverb in Bricks.” I suspect most titles will be more related to their actual proverb or storyline.

I didn’t (and don’t) mean the proverb. Naturally I don’t want people to give it away. I meant only the title.

Absolutely! I agree completely. I don’t want people to copy what I’m doing and I don’t think anybody else would either.

Actually I thought about it. ;-)

Well, whatever you think is best.

“RevMen” wrote: 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..

…and as far as I can tell, it’s “legal” to have unrelated Words Of Wisdom as well, but it may earn you lower marks for just that reason.

EDIT: Ack! I’ve run out of bricks on the very first set! :cry:

Stefan, who really needs to sleep, and who got the chat client to talk to the server! Debugging can commence now, and with huge amounts of luck, tomorrow will bring a Beta version of BfChat!

You can have more than one proverb, right?

Another good resource for words of wisdom is “Poor Richards Almanac” by Ben Franklin. There are plenty of clever ones in there.
