I know that, but the most hours for animating fall on a Sunday. I’d try to enter if it started on Friday, being Saturady would be the animating day, but oh well.

Cool, I’ll try to participate in this one… oh, darg my parents will make me go to bed.
… I could quietly get up when they’re asleep and animate.

No, most of the animating hours fall on saturday. For the west coast it starts at 5:00 am on saturday. That means that 19 of the 24 hours are on a saturday.August 9, 2005 at 7:41 pm #123025

Oh, ok. What I meant was that since I can’t stay up late…most of the hours I can animate fall on the next day; Sunday. I’d be able to animate the morning and afternoons, but not late nights.

Ha Ha! 8 to 8! Easy Time limit on a Saturday! Perfect Animating Conditions.August 10, 2005 at 3:25 am #123127
The mod element thing to me seems kind of pointless, because all anyone would have to do according to your rules is build there sets and then get a piece of paper with the element made on it and tape it to every set they film. As long as your holding the theme of the contest until the 27 what difference does it make if we have a mod element or not?

The mod element ensures that you do your filming only during the 24 hours. It’s possible for you to build your set and write your story and even storyboard your story ahead of time, but you can’t actually start shooting frames until the timer starts and you know what your element is. Come to think of it, you could even record voices ahead of time.
