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?August 16, 2003 at 3:40 pm #12274
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.August 16, 2003 at 3:44 pm #12275

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.August 16, 2003 at 5:41 pm #12281

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! 😥August 16, 2003 at 10:27 pm #12316
