You can use any of my films if you want. The ones I’d most want you to show are Capastroid and The Inventor.

You can show any of my films as well. The highest quality versions I have online are generally very nearly full quality. However many of my movies are very dialog driven so I don’t know how much appeal they could have in a Swedish film festival. (I’m assuming that many people there won’t be fluent in English?)

You can go ahead and show any of my films. I think Mirrored Perspective would be a good choice since there’s no dialog so no one would have to worry about a potential language barrier. I believe I still have the DVD-quality MPEG-2 still uploaded.

Be sure to let me know if you decide to use any of mine.

Thanks guys!

We now have a website up and running as well. It’s in swedish though:

I spent 70 bucks buying the .se address and the hosting service so you’re only allowed to say nice things about the site! :D

Nice logo!

I guess I might as well give you permission to show mine. Any one of Animation Class Lesson 1, Great Inventors 2, Daedalus and Icarus, The Dragon, His Master’s Plan, Taste Matters is ok. Most of them are on my website; the latter is here. The other films on my website contain copyrighted music – to show them legally you probably have to pay royalties to some official organisation.

Thank you, thank you to all of you who’ve offered me your films. Please also direct me to a place where I can download the highest quality version you have of your film. A small web-type realmovie-file will not cut it, I’m afraid. I want the best you can give me.

Oh, and I just came up with a new idea. We’re gonna give all attendees free lego brick-shaped candy. How cool is THAT? 8)

Arg. My short is on my site in 640×480, but I lost the original in a HD crash. I guess that if you can use that, use it, and if not, well, good luck with the festival :) .

EVERYONE is fluent in English in Sweeden. I like sweeden, its a great country judging by my 2 day stay in Gothenburg and Malmo. If you are desperate for movies you can use mine.

Yes, everyone is fluent in english but I’ll still make subtitles for all movies.

I’d love to use your films, brianfast.

I’ve sort of figured out that the less “important” the country is internationally (this is meant politically, I know Swedes enjoy some of the world’s highest living standards + IKEA), the better the people there can speak English. My school once had some seminar with students from other European countries and the Polish people spoke the best English, followed by the Danish, Germans and French (avoiding English seems to be a national pastime over there).

Anyway, the highest versions of my films are on my website. Unfortunately I don’t go higher than 640×480.

640 rez might work, that’s not terribly bad. It’s got a lot to do with the compression too. It’s no big deal if some movies look a bit internetty so to speak. As long as they don’t look completely freakin’ awful when projected from DV, it’s ok.

I’m with you regarding the language issue. However, the biggest reason we kick ass in english is that we don’t dub tv shows and movies like certain other countries do *cough*. Also the natural ability to sound english has to do with the very nature of your native language – how you form the actual words in your mouth. Some languages are more similar than others. But now we’re in linguistics territory and it’s been years since I studied english at college so I’m not gonna go there. :D

I never learned a word of english in school btw – I got it all from books, movies and TV. And records, don’t forget records. My first english phrase probably was “take me down to the paradise city”. 8-)

Woah, the part in English surprised me. Nice animation though. This is a great way to show you are serious about this festival. Have you made a list of films that you know you are going to use? Good Luck!

That was quite a nice advertisement. The footstep sounds were some of the best I’ve ever heard.
