    I like the reality TV style idea. I’d definetly join.

    I agree that the contest would be very hard to pull off. I’d suggest cutting it down to maybe a simple 12-hour competition. Kind of like a mini THAC. If you did that, I’d try to participate.

    Demented Cashier was made in about 3 hours.

    The problem is, you’d need to find four dates that works for everyone involved. And three hours isn’t so bad.

    You’d also need four mod elements and four themes, assuming you want to make sure every film is legitimate.

    And for some reason, I don’t see many people wanting to do this. In fact, I don’t see this contest going very far.

    I did one in three hours. Vader’s buttons was three hours. I’ve made short clips in 90 minutes. It’s not bad.

    Are you nuts? 3 hours? No one will make that. I might just get away with around 30 seconds in three hours.

    My idea is that we have a tournament consisting of four rounds. You must write, animate and edit your film in the time given. No length limit will be placed on the films.

    To enter, you must submit a film for round one. A poll will be started at the end of each round in which users can vote for their favorite film in order to prevent that director from being eliminated from the next round.

    Number of eliminations will vary depending on how many people enter so as to ensure a decent number make it to round four. So the film(s) with the lowest votes will be eliminated and the directors will not be able to continue into the next round.

    Also, after round one, no one else will be permitted to enter. After round one, all entrants names will be taken to ensure this. Films for the following rounds must be new ones, sequals to films in previous rounds are permitted.

    Elimination will continue as in round one until after round four in which the top three will be named.

    The rounds will be as follows.

    Round 1: 24 hours to complete film.

    Round 2: 12 hours to complete film.

    Round 3: 6 hours to complete film.

    Round 4: 3 hours to complete film.

    Actually, I made a directory worthy clip (30 odd seconds long) that did make it in and all done in just over two hours.

    No prize, except boasting rights. If this takes off, we may have a prize for future contests.

    I will be acting as the hub guy for this (you guys will be the judges though the poll) posting the names of directors entering and deleting them as necessary.

    Any questions, feel free to ask. It probably means I left something out 😛
