dialogue query

You can add to either end of the line, just not alter the sequence of words themselves.

pre-recorded music

in reply to pennyeathorne:

Allowed as long as you get the form allowed AND so long as the lyrics are not copyrighted either.
So if they wrote and performed their own music, and get the form signed, you're home and hosed.

Question about "The Non Dialogue Movie"

Getting the line of dialogue into a non-dialogue film will be a challenge

RE: Screening of movie.

It means: Do not organise for a showing of the movie before the heats. Let your cast and crew enjoy their first experience of it at the heat.
Obviously the editor/director and anyone else who happens to be in the room when you finish will see 'the finished film', but that's fine.
Keep it secret, keep it safe

This is just like in 'Enemy at the Gates' when he eats snow to hide his breath.

Weather

Now it says fine spells!
Showers easing on Friday and only a few showers on Sunday.
To me this says Saturday should be fine for filming outside in Wellington

Story is King - how to win V48Hours

My suggestion of idea is not how 'brutal the rationalizations of 'idea' is required to be'

I do not believe that anything about my entry was a 'Frankensteinian aphorism', it was simply a breakdown of the film to an idea level, as I see it. It may be a lot different to what they intended, but it is my reading. Sure its brief, but then again an idea is brief.

An idea is a spark, little more. A powerful spark that hopefully ignites the imagination. In this context its often verbalised at a meeting, cannibalised by others, reformed into a different shape and finalised into something a story can be written on.

If your concept of "an idea" is more complicated than mine, so be it.

Ideas are always Frankensteinian.

All of your ideas, all of mine, virtually all of everyone I can imagine, have their origins in something else that I, you, whoever, has seen, heard or sensed. Da Vinci was simply building (impressively) on previous knowledge and ideas.

Once the monster has been created it cannot be controlled. Where it goes and what it does is almost always out of control of the creator.

When Spielberg made the film 'Jaws' he was building on what already existed. He took what existed and developed it, and subsequently it has influenced people and thinking in ways that he cannot control.

Story is King - how to win V48Hours

In this age of same sex marriages, why not 'Story is King and so is Idea'?

Long live the Kings!

I believe most of this thread is semantics.
Without a good idea the story will struggle.
Yet a good idea is nothing without the story to go with it.

Take 'Brains?'.
Idea: Invert the Zombie genre to show the 'human' side of the zombies.
Story: Start with dinner, are attacked, romance included in there too, they try and escape, end.

The story itself isn't a winner. The idea itself isn't a winner.
But the marriage of the two, plus the execution= winner

Weather

This morning the Wellington forecast for Saturday was for rain.
This afternoon it is predicting cloudy periods with winds strengthening.

Here's hoping....

What technically counts as a "hand in"?

In Wellington there is a countdown and its pretty clear who is 'through the door'
and therefore in.
