    DVXFest – War FEST – Official Rules
    1. Make a movie about conflict that is 6 minutes (or less) and does not exceed a hard R rating (if you are unsure, ask first). Please note: by conflict we mean WAR, not a fight. A 6 minute fight between two people, or a one-time spat, will probably not cut it. Conflict. War. Please see the next post for additional info (coming) and examples of acceptable use of the "war" theme. It should be pretty clear what we mean though (I hope).
      1. 6 minutes and 1 second is a disqualification
    2. You must use a DVXuser sanctioned leader as the first moving images in your film.
      1. Leaders available at: www.dvxfest.com/leaders
      2. You only have to use the visuals (any included audio is not required)
      3. The use of the leader does NOT count as part of your 6 minutes. Everything else will.
    3. You must use the following 3 letters in your film: "DVX". This may be represented visually, or as dialog. Feel free to be creative with this required element. But, please make it clear (to those of us looking for it). You will be required to provide a still frame and/or time stamp when you upload your film.
    4. You must use original or licensed material in your film. Failure to do so will result in disqualification. DVXuser (or its partners) assumes no liability for copyright violations. We will make a good faith effort to identify any and all copyright violations in submitted entries.
    War Fest Run Dates
    Shooting dates start now. The dates to make your film are from April 15th, 2012 to August 16th, 2012. The deadline for uploads will be August 16th, 2012, at 4pm Pacific Daylight(?) Time.
    War Fest Promotion
    1. No more than 15 seconds of footage from your film is to be publicly displayed prior to the conclusion of the festival. (DVXuser may grant a waiver for live film festivals that premiere prior to the conclusion of DVXFest. You must make this request in writing prior to any public viewing.)
    2. You may promote your film (and dvxfest in general) on, or outside of, DVXuser.com. Please do not register to websites simply to spam links to your fest entry. Utilize channels and communities you are already involved in. “Spammy” behavior will be grounds for disqualification.
    *DVXuser reserves the right to alter or edit these rules until May 1st, 2012.
    **While it is our goal to publicly screen all entries that meet the above qualifications, DVXuser reserves the right to refuse entry for any reason.

    ADDITIONAL INFO:

    Q. Can I make my own custom DVXFest leader for use in my film?
    A. Yes. you may. But, only with prior written approval by me first. Send me a copy to see, and if it is ok, I will approve it. One caveat though. If you make a leader for dvxfest, you agree to make it freely available to future dvxfest participants. You can have a unique leader for the fest you create it for. After that time, the leader falls into the "dvxfest public domain" if you will. It will go with the rest of our leaders, so that others can make use of it in the future if they choose. Make sense?

    This post will be updated as questions arise within this thread for easy access later. stay tuned.

    It's on.

    Now, where's Doc?!

    If cinematography wasn't infinite, I'm sure I would have found the end by now.

    "The enemy of art is the absence of limitations"
    -Orson Wells.

    "To me the great hope is... people that normally wouldn't be making movies will make them and suddenly some little fat girl in Ohio will be the new Mozart and will make a beautiful film using her father's camera-corder and the "Professionalism" of movie making will be destroyed forever and it will finally become an art form."
    -Francis Ford Coppola.

    I'm thinking so. I'll likely have a collaborator to co-direct, because you better believe I'll be DPing. Either way, I'm spearheading a project. How the crew shakes out has not even been thought about yet.

    If cinematography wasn't infinite, I'm sure I would have found the end by now.
