    You will also be required to attach a DVXuser leader to the beginning of your film. The running time of the leader does not count against your six minutes. (Note: If the length of the entry exceeds 6 Minutes plus the length of the leader, it will be disqualified. NO EXCEPTIONS.)

    -----
    I'm not getting this... so if your film is say 5:59 and your leader is 04 seconds then your film becomes 6:03 - our film will be DQ'd? just checking here.

    Also do the 15 seconds of credits count against your time?

    Your total film, including all opening titles and credits, may not exceed six minutes. PERIOD.
    in addition:
    You will also be required to attach a DVXuser leader to the beginning of your film. The running time of the leader does not count against your six minutes.
    so, yes the credits are part of your six minute maximum allotment. The leader is not.

    As to your other question... If you are using one of the dvxuser supplied leaders, and your film (not counting the leader) is 6 minutes or less, then it's impossible for you to be dq'd. If the leader is 8 seconds for example...

    Your film is 6 minutes + the leader, that is 6:08. If it is 5:51 plus the leader that is 5:59... etc, etc, etc...

    If your film is 5:59 and you add the 8 second leader then it would be 6:07.

    Otherwise, then your film is not actually the time you stated. you have 6 minutes or less for your film and all credits, etc. That does not include the leader. We know how long the leaders are b/c we supplied them. Just make your film and ensure that it is 6 minutes or less. and then place one of the leaders at the beginning.

    So what was the word on putting a site together for your film? I don't think that was answered specifically.

    Thanks,

    From what I read it's fine and even encouraged as long as you don't show any footage from the film itself.

    Sorry. missed your post, John.

    Yes... outside promotion is welcome and encouraged for your (and our) benefit. Provided you follow the simple rules and disclaimers about not being spam-ish, etc.

    And, of course, no footy rule as Chris mentioned still applies.

    You can use stills though right?

    Just curious. I've yet to promote but I'm pretty sure that's cool isn't it?

    Thanks, Jason.
