Re: THAC 6 results!

I love how this guy is criticising everything, yet he has nothing to show for it.

If you had played with the brightness/contrast, you would have spotted it pretty bloody quickly, or you could hav actually looked at the frame. Also, the frame could have been cropped in post, so there could easily have been a mod element which was cut off, which is allowed by the rules.

Ok nice spotting, even with brightness contrast I didn't see it until you pointed it out. I guess Night Owl is the man, fooled me (which isn't that hard) and won 2nd place. Congrats again.
And thanks for the info on the bus shot (smart). I was prooved wrong and you could have quite easily bagged me out on that, instead you offered insight and wisdom.  I like learning about how these things come together I wish I had 1/2 your talent.
I'm keeping the avatar it can be a reminder to everyone what a looser I am just in case someone forgets.
So did you actually modify the shirt collars they look stock standard to me?
And where did it say in the rules that you could crop out the mod element?
I thought I understood the rules but now I'm not so sure.

Oh Boohoo-ville. I must be the 1 in 10 cos I got it. I did watch it while very drunk that may have helped.
Plot 1: Director is having a bad day with the props department and just when everything is finally going right a caravan full of yobs spoil this best shot and he is almost run over.
Plot 2: The Bull gang pissed as and driving like rat bags come accross their mascot in a field but they are so drunk that when the bull mooo's they get scared and leg it.
Wow that's confusing <sarcasm intended>. But don't fret young BOD there are bigger failures here than you. I liked your movie please make another one soon.

PS. Maggosh there is no room for blasphemy here please.

Re: THAC 6 results!

Congrats and all that, but there was some uncensored offensive material in the censored version of Weed Cops, I noticed.

Smeagol, can you post a list of all the entries in a new topic, along with a warning that there is some demeaning information.

Anyway, I'm not sure if there was a written rule somewhere, but if the film had been cropped to widescreen or filmed in black and white, you could send in proof (coloured/uncropped footage) of the mod element.

Re: THAC 6 results!

Looking at what I produced, 654 frames of animation (12 hours), 6 video tracks, 9 audio tracks (8 hours editing) in my film, to come 11th, I have failed.

Teehee, 1068 frames and I didn't place at all. Don't be so hard on yourself, 11th is awesome. I would have killed just to have the chance to know what place out of 67 I would have gotten had they judged the rest of the entries, or even to have gotten one more comment on my film in general. You did really well, don't feel bad for not doing perfectly mini/smile

Re: THAC 6 results!

Nikolas filmed the whole THAC 5 entry "Narrow Escape" without the mod element in picture, except for in the first shot. He cropped it so that it wasn't visible, but uploaded a video of what it looked like without being cropped. So there are tricks to make the mod element imposible to spot, so just because you can't see it it doesn't mean it's not there.

Here is my new one.

Re: THAC 6 results!

I am so going to sweep the competition next year.

With my luck, though, it'll be exactly on a week that I'm taking a vacation to China or something. Just like the last three THACs. mini/tongue

I agree with Squash, 11th is an amazing rank to get. Think of it this way: You were 11th... out of 67. You placed better than 76 others. Pretty damn good, if you ask me.

I could count how many points I got overall with one finger.

Though, that little one is still an honour. I was part of something historic, and although I epically failed....who cares?
