I actually thought of an interesting idea for a contest a while ago. It’s similar to THAC, but you have a week in order to make a film. I was also thinking, instead of a theme or mod element, you can make whatever plot you want, but you have to include one or two specific lines of dialog in your film (similar to the Ten Lines Contest). I think it would be a great summer contest here, and I’d be interested in participating.

While the concept is interesting, I have to agree that it’d be difficult to get much interest in something like this. To actually participate would be pretty unpleasant, (24 hours is already unpleasant enough, but at least the results are rewarding) I think, and would take a substantial, consecutive block out of people’s schedules. Not to mention this sequence means that the films would get progressively worse with each stage.
If you were going to do something like this, a series of short-term competitions, I’d recommend something like Blunty’s 7/7, but probably smaller, like a 3/3 or a 4/4, which would essentially be three consecutive THACs, with slightly lower expectations because people have to sleep. Of course, most adults would be unable to compete, but this could work for students on summer break.
My idea would be something along the lines of a “one-week trilogy contest” or something like that, with an every-other day schedule; i.e. the first film is made on Saturday, the second on Monday, the third on Wednesday. There could be a guideline that the three films be a series of three films. (But not just one film broken into 3 segments.) An every-other-day schedule would allow people to sleep some so that they could devote nearly 24 hours to each of the three films.
You’d still need pretty good prizes to make it worthwhile to enter something like that.
