    He was a great singer and they were a great band. The Jerry Cantrell album Boggey Depot is pretty good to if you haven't heard it. For some reason Layne always reminded my of Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), anyone else?

    I think a sniper's a good character to tackle too.

    I hear that's cheaper than using the real recording

    Breaking, urgent, vital news:

    Made the first purchase for this (or any DVXfest) today.

    A whip. 12". Redrock.

    That's all.

    Met with the screenwriter tonight, and over three hours learned quite a bit about the short genre, which I will now share snippets of with everyone in this fest's round of hard life lessons from Hans.

    LESSON 1:

    "Smoking a cigarette and thinking does not constitute a story"

    So you want to write a story about X, because X is sweet, and you already have a poster. Great.

    the first step, after you have your situation, or premise, or character, is to have an immediate problem for them to address. It isn't enough for them to be flawed and 'internally conflicted.'

    This goes along with what I said last thread with raising the stakes. Don't just have a character with memory problems, have a character who has memory problems, and if he doesn't remember this one thing, he dies. Not just that, but he'll die in the next 6 minutes (including credits).

    Epic poster man! I was also thinking of doing a war short that was based around a rooster, but yours looks really impressive so I'm glad I didn't! haha. Good Luck!
