    Does the trailer have to be for a film that is in the real contest?

    The name confuses me. You say it’s about fame, but if it could be about infamy and glory also, I’d prefer to do a WWI movie. Would that be acceptable?

    I believe so, Alpha.

    I think by the glory/infamy thing, they must have some relation to someone famous, not just the subject itself.

    Are not glory, infamy, and fame all instances of someone who has a lot of other people that know about them? Adding Infamy and Glory just takes the Fame theme a touch further. In fact, I don’t think it changes at all, as glory and infamy are just two instances of fame. They do, however, add a nice TLA.

    Glory is especially different from fame, but whatever. So what you’re implying is that I couldn’t do a movie about, say, imperialism, but I could do a movie about an imperialist?

    Rainsford, why do you have to make everything seem so difficult?

    “dictionary.com” wrote: Glory – Great honor, praise, or distinction accorded by common consent; renown.

    Fame – Great renown: a concert violinist of international fame. – Public estimation; reputation: a politician of ill fame.

    Infamy – Evil fame or reputation.

    Yes, you could make movie about an imperialist under this scheme, provided the imperialist was famous in some way.

    Does the famous person have to be directly tied to show-business? If I do not finish the film in time, could I still enter a trailer?

    No, I don’t think the famous person would necessarily need to be tied to show business.

    Now that the theme is all but decided, I guess I better work out some prizes and rules and get this thing posted.
