I occasionally make short films and play around with whatever toys are available to me. I’m no Orson Welles but I like to keep myself occupied. Recently I had the brilliant idea to enlist willing parties into my attempt to stave off boredom. I figure I have this network of people I’m connected with socially, a social network, if you will. I put the call out on Facebox and Twizzler and I received some cool entries. As I write this I’ve only had a dozen or so entries though and I need a lot more in order to fill the time I want to fill. It takes a lot of footage just to edit into a short thing to throw up on scrootoob. I figure most of us are carrying around cameras all day. It probably won’t be too much of a hassle to shoot something and send it to me, right? Sorry if that’s presumptuous but who knows, maybe it’ll be fun.
This is just for fun. Just an experiment, like every other damned thing I do. I have no idea what the finished product will look like and that’s why I’m excited about it. I imagine it’ll just be a short experimental mishmash but we’ll see, I guess.
Here are the rules
1. The video has to be shot by you or you have to appear in it. You have to own the rights, dig?
B. You have to be cool with whatever I decide to do with it.
That’s it. I mean, I might have some problems with certain file formats or something but I can’t imagine what those problems might be so whatever, do your worst. If I can’t figure out how to convert a file, I won’t use the god damned thing. Easy peezy.
send whatever video you have to Elijahbrubaker@gmail.com
around 30 seconds is great. it keeps the file size low but allows me enough room to edit. I imagine most of the people submitting to this will be people I know but just in case, make sure to include your name if you want to be included in the credits.
Thanks everyone. You’re the greatest people in the world and I love you.
