    It is entirely up to the artist. We encourage you to do so. However - you don't have to post the current render in your WIP post.

    Hey guys,

    I've been keeping an eye on this contest because I would love to see VFX collaboration grow on these boards! :-) I would like to provide my thoughts on how to generate more interest/involvement. I know some of this will be redundant from what others have said but here goes:

    - Change name to "VFXFest - Supernatural" (or equivalent...CG was a little confusing to me as well)
    - Make it more focused/specific (i.e. "Has to be between 5-15 seconds long. Include a matchmove element...etc.)
    - I think would be mutually beneficial to incorporate FX work from various films being made by members of these forums. For example, you could ask filmmakers to submit a shot from their film that needs some VFX work. The competition could then be to choose one of the shots and submit it or you guys could narrow it down to a specific shot each week/month/quarter and everyone works on the same shot (a bit easier to compare/judge/vote). That way the filmmaker might actually get something that he can use and the winner can have his VFX work in a film!

    Anyway, I know it is often a tiresome and thankless job to put together something like this and I REALLY, REALLY appreciate the work you guys are putting into this! Don't give up!

    Hey Guys,

    Thanks for organizing this - here's my (rather late) feedback. I did have a look at the rules/threads when you first launched the Fest. However, the deadline at that time was Dec 20th and since I did Scriptfest 3, which I have just finished reading/commenting on, I decided I didn't have time to enter here. Now I see the deadline has been extended. At this point there's still not much time though, so unless I can knock up something simple quickly ... Anyway, please keep doing them - I think they can definitely be worthwhile. Some thoughts:

    1. Try and keep the deadlines away from the deadlines/voting/commenting periods of other fests on the forum.
    2. Keep in mind that the really hard core CG guys are probably going to be more attracted to competitions at places such as CGSociety.
    3. I'm afraid I disagree with pia12254 - don't make it too focused/specific. It's a huge wide area, different people do different things. Make it a fest where different people can play around with different techniques - stills, mattes, modelling, animation, green screen, motion tracking. I think a fest where people can do as much or as little as they want is more likely to get off the ground in my opinion. It's not about winning, after all, (although it's always nice!!) - it's about experimenting, having fun, swapping ideas and opinions...

    Keep it up and good luck to all the entries.
    Jason

    lol. Sorry man. Those places have nothing on what's going on here. Those
    are strictly 3D formats. This is primarily a film site. What we do, 'we' as
    in the 'other guys' far outways what any standard 3D artist on those sites
    are doing. This is not just 3D, it's everything under the sun. No
    competition at all imo. They are welcome to join in and compete if they
    want. Last I heard, I do believe you can not even mention dvxuser at that
    site without getting it deleted. Soooooo.
    Like I say, they are welcome here. We don't discriminate.

    I agree. The thing I'm really most concerned about is keeping all creative
    doors open.
    Not so much for what we know we can do, but for those that can introduce
    new concepts, ideas and methods. It's what we "haven't" seen yet is what I
    think we need to let nurture, instead of saying 'do this','do that'. But as
    said before, that also has it's place because that's real world work.
    So we'll try and juggle both between real working jobs and open ended
    creativity.

    And I agree it's not about winning, at all. It's about sharing most of all and I think that's where most of the trouble lies. There seems to be a lot of 'I have to protect my ideas and work' but I don't think that's the case.

    Anyways, hehe, really appreciate the feedback man and we're listening.
    Thanks man.

    Actually there is a lot of 2D going on there too, but the important thing is:

    Sounds like you're on the right track

    Hi Guys. I made a minor change to my initial opening post. We're looking at having some corporate sponsors dropping in throughout the new year that are family oriented. Thanks for your understanding.
