    That's really unfortunate. I came here in 2008 and my goal was always to place in the top 3 but not like this.

    I know that the little short fests are not the bread and butter of this site but is there an overall down turn in activity?

    That's very disappointing in terms of the (very) low turn-out. Though to be fair to those who did follow through and actually made and submitted their films, the competition should still proceed. It is proceeding, right?

    Back in 2008 I believe there were at least 50 (or more) films entered...so yeah, it has slowed down a bit. Seems the focus of the community has shifted from flimmaking to camera specs, all well & good...just different. Personally, I miss the old days where we supported & pushed each other into making a film. Good, bad or indifferent...we were actually MAKING something, using the tools & creativity we have...making it happen and helping each other along the way. A big part of it for me was that we each kept a film production log as we went along. It was great to read about how each filmmaker overcame the hurdles of 'no budget' filmmaking. Just knowing you weren't the only one running into problems put you at ease. If you had a problem you couldn't solve, fellow DVXer's would jump in and offer to help any way they could...great community!

    This is an example of a film thread from days past... my second film entry from the "Twilight Fest 2008" (a lot of us back then shot & entered 2 films). Give it a read & see what I mean (the Sheriff & Llama incidents):

    In the original ZombieFest, there were over 90 entries. And that's back when a standard-def DV camera cost over $3500. Definitely we had a lot more filmmakers back then, vs. geartalkers.

    Maybe because the prizes that were promised to be announced on June 12th never were announced? ;)

    I dunno, there's 8 threads open on films. Sure not all could finish but they should still turn in something this week so we can see some zombie goodness. Or post some of the stuff from Zombiefest I.

    Back in the day, I keep hearing about Texas Fortune but can't find it to watch anywhere.
