They announced our ward film festival today. As much as I enjoy making movies, I have yet to get myself motivated to make one when I haven’t had a venue to show it. So this will probably be the only time during the year when I’m likely to make one. The problem is the requirements of this festival. First, there’s a five minute time limit. Not that I’ve ever listened to time limits, but that is sure limiting. Second, you sign up for a category of movie and you make the movie with everyone else that signs up for that category. Teamwork? I’m not into that junk. Third, these are the categories:
Based on a Book
How in the world do you make a five minute Horror movie for Mormons with zero budget? How do a bunch of Americans make a foreign movie? Who wants to watch an amateur historical film? This festival has serious issues.
Poll of the day: Which category should I sign up for? Should I stick with comedy? Should I sign up for historical and just make it a comedy? Should I wise up and spend more time studying anatomy?
