i hate to tell you this but the local cops were actors it was all make believe. that what happens in movies. like mrs nim found out last night when she loccked the keys inside the writing studio that you can't open a locked door with a credit card or a bent hairclip.
and i'm having a break from making credits for the rugby that i am sooo over .

On this page they have added a visual guide to the order of elements - BUT, they've got a slight typo:
On the Title card visual it shows Film Title first followed by Team Name.
In the explanation text it is the other way around...

meh we can still read it...

One year a while back, bars & tone were the rage, you just had to have 'em.
Well, one school team couldn't come up with the goodies, so they shot 10 seconds of the ugliest multi-coloured curtains you've ever seen and recorded themselves nasal-humming a '1k tone' into the camera mic, Hysterical! So good I played it at their heat!

Sure, but these are the types of things people get worried about. It doesn't take a lot to have someone check these things and get them right.

True that. a Fact Checker should be a someone you can afford to have on your team, and a rough cut viewer, coffee maker, pizza deliverer and on-line wrap up fella.

Dear God don't forget the online wrap up!

Nice to see the rules all laid out nice and clear, well done to the organisers for doing this.

I've been DQ'ed in the past for something trivial, what really hurts though is other films with the same issue not getting DQ'ed, so let's hope the clearer rules also result in more even handed judging (and less people making silly mistakes!)

ok, clarification: team logo.
can it be done prior to the weekend, or does it need to be part of the whole big stressy thing that completely kills our editor / VFX dude?

Not the intro, but the really cool, whizzy animation thingy that promotes your team (or changes your team name for next year as is in our case)

In this years rules, it doesn't say.

I'm fairly certain it can be done prior.
I know that this was the case previously, so unless the ruling has changed, and I cannot understand why it would, then it should be sweet.

Otherwise every team would need a new logo each year.

Your team intro and team logo can both be made prior to the shoot weekend.

Awesome!

Thank you!

He's also concerned about end credits having to be part of the actual weekend and not prepped up prior.

End credits can be done prior as far as i know.. just make sure you keep the project files so they can be changed if people are added or don't show..

thanks all.

He's pretty pedantic about keeping the files (it's his 6th and my 7th)
and we keep coming back again and again and again and again...

Don't render your end credits prior to the weekend.

Aside from any rules issues, it's just a pain when - invariably - you have to change them.

When I competed we tended to have someone other than the editor typing up the credits roll to email through to the editor, who just pasted them in.

Team Logo: Do it Now, make it interesting, make it monumental.

Credits must be done during the comp weekend, no cheating.
Compile the list but they must be made during the weekend.

Credits are part of your film people!

No matter now expedient they are.
My take on credits & title:
10 sec Title if that long,
and
20 secs Credit, if that long

Remember Title & Credit are not telling story,
they're just a list of names that mean something to you and your team,
and
DON'T FORGET THE END CREDIT! Failure to do so is a DQ.
