Are we allowed to use things like Facebook or a fake youtube page in our film?
Hi, I'm new to 48 hours this year and just wondering how lenient the rules are... I would hate to make a film and have it disqualified because of a small thing.
So my first question is, can you include things such as a message posted on facebook... or say for the genre "FAD" could you mock up a youtube page and put your own video (filmed within the 48hours obviously) on a fake youtube page to show the amount of views it has had...? or would you have to come up with a name thats not copyright like instead of "youtube" use "videos today" or instead of "facebook" "updateme"?
Also how lenient are the genre rules... for example if you got "one room" as a genre do you HAVE to film in only one room the whole time? or can you include flashbacks etc that help the story but aren't filmed in that one room? obviously you may be marked down for doing this, but it would receive a disqualification would it? I mean if you get a comedy, you're not gonna get in trouble if there's a scene that's not funny...
Any advice would be much appreciated.
