2-MINUTE FILM CLUB! The Big "chase"
by SAM CHEN

And thanks to Sam Chen for his great ideas....

THE CHALLENGE:

Create a short micro movie inspired by the published topic.

The finished short can be LIVE ACTION, LIVE ACTION WITH VFX or ANIMATED. But you only have ONE MONTH to finish the piece. The projects can be done by an individual but team entries are encouraged.

The key of the challenge, for all entry types, is to do an simply do a short. This means that the final piece will be evaluated mostly on the principles of story telling. My advice, keep it simple and work as part of a team.

Rules for the different types of entries:


ANIMATED (Difficulty Level HIGH)

Pre made models can be used.
The story and animation must be done after the topic has been selected.
Extensive WIP posts are required as evidence that the work has been done after the topic selected.
LIVE ACTION WITH VFX: (Difficulty Level HIGH)

More emphasis on composite work and Visual effects
The VFX must complement the storyline
For this kind of entry You can do anything you want, as long as the entry looks polished, and has at least some basic filmaking theory behind it. The entries will be judged more on the esthetics of the scenes and the dynamism of the finished effects.


LIVE ACTION: (Difficulty Level MEDIUM)

More emphasis on editing, lighting and cinematography.
The scenes in the entry require good flow and good camera work
For this kind of entry You can do anything you want, as long as the entry looks polished, and has at least some basic science behind it. The entries will be judged more on the esthetics of the scenes and the dynamism of the finished animation.



HYBRID ENTRY: (Difficulty Level VERY HIGH)

It combines the required of both the LIVE ACTION and the VFX entry.
The best animation/short will be selected by an open vote
for these categories:

Best Cinematography
Best Storyline
Best Editing
Best Visual Effects
Best Overall Entry
The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner
designed by me.

DATELINE: Monday July 15th 12:00 PM

YOU HAVE One month to do the challenge.

The winner will be picked by an open vote and special winner will be picked by the moderators...

i mean, isn't this what animation is all about -telling a story? (it is to me, anyhow)
i'm really looking forward to this; going to check out your 'post here short...' thread right now
(oops, no i'm not -the power just went out and my UPS is telling me it's time to shut down)

2 minutes in one month?

A better lenght would be 30 sec , like the annecy trailers gobelins students did.

Phrenzy84
06-10-2005, 11:44 PM
damn you guys are really pushing the envelope, this has got to be one of the most hardest things i have ever seen. Sheep Factory is kinda right, 30 seconds of great stuff is much better than 2 minutes of rushed stuff.

I have a few ideas, wouldnt mind entering. Might try to go it alone, doubt ill finish but i will have some work at the end i guess.


edit:// just seen this is a live action shot film not a animated feature.

re-edit:// just seen (LIVE ACTION WITH VFX, LIVE ACTION or ANIMATED), so if your feature is animated, will it be considered as vfx or does there have to be particle work, what about dynamics, i have a few ideas not alot when it comes to particles, though that is still in there, but more on the dynamic side of things.

I think rushing for 2 mintues for a ANIMATED SHORT will be like rushing for the quantity rather than the QUALITY of the film...

Can we please cut down the duration please ??

Phrenzy84
06-11-2005, 01:00 AM
someone always says it better than me :).

But one thing, i dont think you can set a task like this with a strong story in 2minutes let alone 30 seconds. I take it this is gonna be more visual flare/photography and compositing than the narrative.

GENERAL RULES:



The lenght of the mini movie should NOT be longer than 2 minutes, but shorter entries are acceptable


Why are people concerned about 2 minutes being an issue? The rules quoted above say that 2 min is MAX, not required. I see no reason you can not do a great 30 second animation. So what's the problem....?

06-11-2005, 10:07 AM
finally something that will make people concentrate on story. i hardly see any animation on cgtalk worth the effort people put into it.

afterall, why animate when you arn't telling a good story? might as well make it a still. im not in this challenge but i will be aniticipating what people output.

I second Visionist. Come on guys we've been discussing this for almost a month and we didn't see you back then. It's a bit too late to criticise Roberto's work. If you hadn't heard about this challenge before it became "official" and got plugged, you could at least read the rules before criticising. A little respect would do no arm.

Anyways, I'm glad this contest is on track :D I'm already working on it.

See you in the pit.

06-11-2005, 01:46 PM
That's an awesome idea for a speed challenge but i have to agree that 2 min is really long, we really have to find ideas to fill and spend a lot of time to do it... and we can do great things in 30 sec also (as the gobelins's site show...)...

So short anim means 3d or/and 2d ?

RobertoOrtiz
06-11-2005, 02:11 PM

2 minutes is THE MAXIMUM amount of time.
And you dont have to do your work in english, but subtitles might help.

When I saw the topic on the frontpage I suddenly thought of a 2min short some friends an I did 2 years ago.
As a part of an application for the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg, Germany, we help my best friend with this trashy short.

Tha task was to make a film out of two given pictures. They marked either the beginning or the end of the clip, vice versa.

First picture, u see a some kind of man standing in a doorway of a corridor. And the second, a man hiding under a bar table.

We decided to make it as a fictive old school cop tv show.


I only want to show what u can do with some really cool people, one day of filming and one day of editing.

Sorry to interrupt .
We all know making a good short is not that easy(Story,Directing,Editing,Sound effects,Special FX,.....) . So if someone can make nice short films , why make it for this challenge ! not for 100 of festivals out there with great prizes !! (without 1 mounth limitation)....
I think if we want to learn more about Cinematography , it's better to analyse some good short films here .

Just my opinion !!

I apologize visionist for not reading it all of the way through, I've been busy a lot lately so when it doesn't jump out at me I miss it, i don't always have time to read the entire thing. Next time you encounter something like that happening, ignore my post and stop acting like no one ever makes mistakes.... sorry if I come off sounding mean, but I don't like being talk down to like some stupid kid.

anyways back to topic, good luck to all that participate and while i somewhat agree with -REZA-, it will be interesting to see the work produced out of this challenge.

Who says a still can't tell a great story?
Now there's 2880 stills running through 24 a second they can use--or more. I'm sure we'll see some fantastic work.
Were I more talented, I'd have a go at this, but alas...

Sorry man to rip you like that, but it was the last straw. Everyone was complaining about the 2 min thing and whining on how it was too long when it states that 2 min is the max, and people are still complaining about that:P, so I hope you understand why i came out like that.

sIt is very simple...
You need to practice, before you can comp.
The only way to get good practice in film is to pick up a camcorder, a cheap editing software and DO a mini film.

It is no science.

it is like someone who HAS NEVER DRAWN in his life entering into a ART competition.

By practicing each month, you will get better.

But people, just keep it simple.

2 question/discussion/whatever they are

1- 2 minutes are intended WITHOUT end credits right? (it's quite important this)

2- the link of the "suggested topics" bring to the one of the fxwars. Is that right?

Someone said the theme was funny, and unless they meant, like sour cream gets "funny," I wasn't sure. The original message of this thread actually has a typo that says Robert will announce the theme from a random list. And the OTHER thread really strongly gives this impression.

Okay, the BIG CHASE. Gotcha. Big lawn chair, no problem. Thanks.

Question:
What is the average size for a 60 sec. QT movie @ 320 x 240 and 640 x 480 (the recommended sizes)?

On average and assumption, how many people will DOWNLOAD this clip?

I have looked in the archive messages at the previous competitions but can not view how many views a thread had gotten (to guess-a-mate an assumed number of downloaders) nor what the file sizes were.

I would like to have this info to expect what could occur to the bandwidth on my host account, hoping it will not exceed.

And, yes... I know I know.... different issues can result in different file sizes and no one can predict how many people will view a file.... but based on previous challenges, I'm curious if anyone has noticed. This info will help me decide on whether I will do this (that and time).

Thanks for your replies.

Funeral -
This is flame bait, right?

Two minutes looks pretty classy at 10 - 20 megs. I found that out the hard way because triggerstreet.com has 15 Megs as their ceiling. They have a good help page on using the compressor/encoder that is built-into Quicktime recording on most app's, like LightWave. You pay with those setings. 320x240 will look immaculate, 640x480 will likely show some wear.

.:ZRDwD:.
06-13-2005, 08:08 PM
I'm not interested in free hosting, cuz you're right... they will be nutty. After two downloads of a 50MB clip, no one will see it again.

My host allows around 90GB bandwidth (not exactly sure, I'm at work... and "web hosting" is filtered out here so I can check my account). I'm just curious if I do a 50MB clip, how much of this will be consumed. I don't want to wig-out too much of it cuz I have some websites I need to keep up. That's why I'm looking for approximations of what to expect size-wise for a 1min clip and how many views to a voting thread. I'm not looking for a "ohhhh.. you have plenty of bandwidth, go for it....". Cuz there is no way I'm going to have my sites be inaccessable.

This is something I really would love to do when I find the time. And if not, then I would still like to have the info for future reference.

Thanks for the reply, Scott. Appreciate it. And if push comes to shove, I'll check out that link of Google. As for searching here... I'm aware of those, but appear to be more pic-friendly servers than movie, you know? But then, I didn't read every single posting.

**edit**
cross-post with Scott's edit. :)
Thanks again for that updated info.

Worry about having time to render larger than postage size.

As a host, I think www.triggerstreet.com (http://www.triggerstreet.com) is fine, though I think you have to read 2 scripts first or something weird like that.
]
There should be a few others who are tolerant in the vlog community as long as it's under 20 Meg.
I edited my comments about freeservers out from an earlier post since it wasn't asked. I also commented that there are probably servers who can give you what you need cheaply listed at google, or worth asking about at answers.google.com where I seem to get a lot of problems fixed quick.

I am new to 3D modeling and have a few Ideas I would like to enter, provided I can get them done.

If you want to see more Ideas on a similar contest go to 10secondclub.org
they have a monthly contest where they provide a sound file and you try to render to it.

I look forward to seeing everyones entries.

Still another freeserver for video:

ourmedia.org

(you may also have to set up a blog with blogger.com, I haven't tried some of these yet)

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/videoblogging/ (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/videoblogging/)

is the vlog phenomenon.

Some of these grab your "rights" but as long as all that means is that one episode of "I Love Lucy" plays in cyberspace forever, and the other seventy are rentable, the only downside is yet more pointless drivel keeping you away from the godhead.

A lot of websites -- I think even Google is showing shorts -- grab what rights they can. icebox.com is notorious for this, and then "sold" its "library" after its bankruptcy. I wouldn't want someone to let this scare them, since "Tripping the Rift" and other shorts have premiered on the internet and gone on to be "picked up." One three minute film in the public domain is not the end of the world.

Here is a pretty good online film resource page that links to a bunch of short film hosts.

including this list of some of the older ones:

I guess when I think of cinematography and editing I think more of live action than. I'm not quite sure why. Probably because I'm more into live action these days and I hear it more than with CG.

Sorry I seemed sort of harsh in a way on my last post. I think I was just having a bad day.

it's cool, man -you weren't harsh at all. I was just wondering if I had missed something in my enthusiasm to make an animated short. In the beginning of this thread, it seemed like there were more live action/vfx entries that animated ones -looking at it now, there seems to be just as many animated entries (if not more). thanks for your reply,
ben

Reading the rules it says that a title with:
2-MINUTE FILM CLUB! THE CHASE
MY NAME (Individual or team)
(LIVE ACTION WITH VFX, LIVE ACTION or ANIMATED)
Date

has to be put at the beginning and end of the movie. Wondering if it would
be ok to amend that rule to allow the freedom of including that message somewhere
'near' the beginning and somewhere 'near' the end.

I am hoping to have a short intro scene and then the title credits, if that would be ok?

How will the judging be done? Will the voting thread have links to all the completed projects? (I don't mean to sound lazy, I am looking at all the treahds I can, but to vote it would be easier if I could go through the finished projects without sorting through all the threads that just don't get done).

Hello all,
I'm affraid I won't be able to vote. I'm off to Venice area Italy in one hour for well deserved vacation. I thought I would be able to cast my vote before I leave, but since the thing was a bit delayed, I'll have to pass. I won't even be here when the results are annouced since I come back around the 30th. Too bad. :(
Anyways, I wish best of luck to all the participants. This challenge was a great fun to do.
Bye.

Welcome to italy! or like we say, "benvenuto"!

If you pass from the west come to Turin and say hi to me ;)

Don't worry for the results (you can go to an internet point...even if it's vacation) you'll find them here when you return home :P

Have fun!

2 minutes in one month?

A better lenght would be 30 sec , like the annecy trailers gobelins students did.

have you see the 5 news films of Students Gobelins for Annecy 2006 ?

http://www.gobelins.fr/galerie/animation/annecy2006.htm

Do you know ? :

Summer school in Paris, French and european influence in animation from 3 to 13 July 2006 ...
