    Default New contest ideas?

    I know the winner hasn't even been announced for the current one yet, but I had an idea for the next one

    A 30 second freestyle film.

    You have to make a movie that is exactly 30 seconds long. No more, no less.

    Either that or a 1MB video competition. Make a video that stays under a 1MB file. Your choice of compression, bitrates and length, as long as it stays under 1MB

    Keeping in with the "limitations" theme, a 160x120 resolution video...

    A three-scene film.

    Make a film that uses only three static scenes. WHen I ssay "static" i don't mean noone moving, I just mean three backgrounds, filmed on a tripod or other makeshift flat surface.

    An interpretation of a script.

    We get someone who is a competent scriptwriter to write a very simple script. Not any specific subject, background or ambience, just the words.

    Then, the script has to be interpreted by the contest entrants in whatever way their mind works.

    Working on your "small" idea, how about a film designed for a video phone?

    People tend to be turned off by something that pigeon holes then to a certain genre etc. I think we'd need one that's open to a lot of interpretation.

    Let's have a competition to see who can come up with the most offensive, "politically incorrect" abusive film

    How about a colour theme? 'Red', for example...
