Please don’t waste time discussing alternative titles for the contest, Josh has decided on that one and is not likely to change his mind.

Also, please ensure you read all of his oroginal post and the entire thread before asking questions for clarity, as you may find your question has already been answered.

(Actually, if they don’t read the thread, they won’t see that point! It’s a bit like leaving a sign for a blind man to read!)

For copyright free music, there was a whole host of posts around the time of HAT. Could someone edit the thread and repost it as a sticky in this forum?

I think this is an excellent theme, absolutely wide open for subject matter and storylines. I am really looking forward to what the community will bring forward for this contest Josh, well done. My usual offer of help applies.

Uh oh….a search for HAV on Google reveals the second link as ‘Bonsai on the web’ – http://www.hav.com/bonsai

Another one reveals that HAV stands for Hepatitis A Virus – a debilitating disease lasting for several months.

Doctor: I’m afraid you have got HAV
Patient: Is that bad?
Doctor: You will be severely debilitated by the need to animate for a few months, but the prognosis is good. I can see that after June 13th there will be a reduction in the debilitation, but an increase in anxiety levels, but there should be some relief in July when your final test results are announced.

.HAV is also the file extension for VideoMach’s internal file format (i.e. that’s what VideoMach makes when you ask for a preview).

Trés magnifique!

I know, HaV doesn’t spell anything.

Not a problem. Ever hear of word coinage? From now on, hav is the feeling you get when you realize that an acronym spells nothing.

Oh, cool! I had this great idea for a short film a long ways back involving a heroic (but not exactly the smartest) figure. This may be a nice oppurtunity to ressurect that idea AND get me back into the swing o’ things. :)

So, any other details we need to know about? EDIT: :oops: Nevermind.

Bonzai, who’s exited.

Just to make sure, is this a non-exclusive OR? Is it ok to portray good and bad equally in one film?

Good and Evil can both be betrayed. It would be difficult to show one without the other. However, you must choose either a hero or a villain to be the focus of your film.

Time limits? Deadines?

These things are covered in the first post.

I’d still like to know if entries have to be unreleased, I cannot find anything explicit in the first post about that. Will it be ok to show a movie at that upcoming German brickfilm festival and submit it for the HaV contest afterwards?

Yes, they must remain unreleased until the submission deadline. I didn’t state it in the first post but it’s on the forthcoming contest page.

When will the contest page appear? (or a hint on the news).

How does one post a movie somewhere so that it is available to the judges and yet remains ¨unreleased¨? If this has already been covered somewhere, my apologies; but I would still appreciate it if someone point me in the right direction.

Yes, it does. It’s the Norwegian word for ocean…

The film remains hidden from the judges until the deadline as well. Before the deadline, you must upload your film somewhere and provide me with a link to it. Only I will see all of the films before the deadline. If needed, I can provide you with server space to upload. For contests I always put all of the films on the brickfilms server.

I believe I may be in for this one. It should help me get contest expirience.

Realmedia, no more than 3 mb/min

Rev, does DivX codec count as Realmedia? And also with the 3mb/ min, could someone at least explain what that means?

Great idea! I hope to finish in time.

A maximum size of 3 megabytes (3072kb) per minute.

Realmedia is another codec than DivX. I think that’s a no.
