Did you fill out the online wrap-up form? I think that's where the data for the database comes from.

Really? When I asked about it I was told so long as your film is in on time you are good.
When I asked it wasn't so much as not having done it as having spelled multiple crew names wrong in the form as I desperately tried to fill it out on my phone before 7pm but I'd think that it's still the same case... if you handed in the film on time and correctly wrote the information needed on your envelope.

I thought (happy to be corrected), that if the online wrap up form wasn't done it was a DQ.
Am going to search through the rules now.

Rule 10: All teams must fill out the online wrap sheet before 7pm at the close of competition. Access to this form will be provided to the registered email address at the start of the competition.

So the issue is: is this a rule or is this a guideline?
I would have thought one rule is equal to another, whereas guidelines can be a touch moveable.

Thoughts?

I think their are two types of rules in this comp.

One are the actual rules of the comp (must use the prop, get the line right, hand in before 7pm etc.)

The other sort are 'hand-in rules' rules created by the organisers to make their life easier, C5 envelope, the info card, the 5 seconds black with 'Made as Part of Rialto 48HOURS... ' etc.

Breaking one of the comp rules, is bound to get you DQ'd

Where as breaking one of the 'hand-in' rules, is a real grey area.

I think you're probably right.
Perhaps they should split 'the rules' into 'Those that must be obeyed or you're out' and 'This may come back and bite you in the bum.'
For example, if you 'break' the rules of file type you shouldn't be DQ'd, but if it don't play the effect is the same.
This may well therefore fall into the latter category because here is the downside to not doing as told- you don't get reviewed etc

But the list you give Vega includes some stuff that I think should be DQ material. The Info card? Not there, out she goes. The 'Made as part of...? Not there? Out she goes.
These show a lack of respect for the comp and the sponsors. How much do Rialto pay for the naming rights? Enough for the teams to include their name in the final screen.

As far as the online hand-in goes, I think this one is close to the DQ line.
It is the hand in line for out of towners (checksum etc)

The other examples?
Envelope is the wrong size? No biggie. Any envelope will hold the USB, but it needs the team name etc on it for organisational purposes.

4 seconds of black? No biggie. The film has ended.

I think that the competition's hard line on rules is one of the reasons so many people get their entries right.

Can you imagine what a nightmare it would be for organizers if they labelled some of their rules "kind of useful but you don't really have to if you can't be bothered"? There are no rules that are in there just for fun. They're all in there for a reason.

Some of these rules are a grey area it's true, but that should be decided on a case by case basis by organizers and judges. It keeps the fear of disqualification in us and that means neater entries!

No Online Wrap = DQ'd in my view. Otherwise what's the point of teams doing it during the always busy and stressful Sunday afternoon? If I'm organised and ticking off my list of items to complete and someone else is not ... that's just too bad for them.

I doubt I'll be DQ'ed. But I will be mindful of completing it next year. Just means that I won't have people critiquing my film this year. Rats.

Keep the faith, man! Hopefully soon you'll also remember that you clicked "Save" before rushing out the door for the hand in. I'm sure that "Rules 2014 - What you Must do" title means absolutely nothing. Cheers.

Perhaps they should split 'the rules'

So you are suggesting they should have a page of rules, and a blank page of 'other' rules.

'If you only see one movie this year - make sure it's yours!'
If you want a happy ending, that depends of course, where you stop your story
