    I thought so too. I guess most people prefer having limitations on what they can and can't shoot.

    Anyway, I'm really looking forward to all the films and with only 19 (or so) entered I'm hoping I can watch and comment on them all this week-end.

    Numbers have been dropping though. Last fest only had 25 at the most if I recall.

    In a way it's nice. Having to watch >60 entries was a daunting task.

    At the end of the day, even if it's only 5 entries, we'll still do these things. The fests are important, I think... whether it's 5 or 500 people involved. Sometimes the intimacy of a fest, can make for a more rewarding experience for the participants (my opnion, anyways).

    That said... stay tuned...

    Agreed. It also seems like we are seeing more polished entries overall when there are fewer in the fest.

    I agree. I was just surprised there won't more taking advantage of the open-ended theme this time. The DVXfests are always a great way to get feedback on your filmmaking and work on your craft.

    I think with a smaller fest it will be nice, as hopefully all the filmmakers will have a chance to check out the other films and learn from each other.

    I really enjoyed watching the bts videos too.

    But actually making one was hard, I hate being in front of the camera and couldn't think of anything clever to do for it. I think it was almost harder than making our film.

    Doesn't work for me... I'm a one-man-band and barely had enough time to shoot the film let alone get BTS stuff...plus there's that witness protection thing.

    I always thought the film threads with BTS pictures, progress reports, problems and funny stuff that happened on the set are the better option (IMHO).

    I'd like to see a trailer over the BTS stuff.

    I love the BTS thing this time around, it's been great to see the faces and hear their voices of the director's and crew. I think it's a strong link for the community.

    This is my first fest (with no past fests as a bias), but in my opinion I liked the bts. For someone not knowing anyone it was a way to see you guys in motion, to put a personality behind the avatar.
