DVXuser SPYFEST Short Film Festival
All films must be no longer than 6 minutes including credits.
The festival category is Spy - Think James Bond.
The central character of all films must be named Rob or Robin.
This is the first festival open to all cameras.
All films must be "R" rated or lower. Our "R" rating is pretty loose and itís a hard R.
ďIn the opinion of the Rating Board, this film definitely contains some adult material. Parents are strongly urged to find out more about this film before they allow their children to accompany them. An R-rated film may include strong language, violence, nudity, drug abuse, other elements, or a combination of the above, so parents are counseled in advance to take this advisory rating very seriously.Ē
All filmmakers agree to grant DVXuser.com and its agents non-exclusive rights for their films to appear on a potential Spy-Fest DVD or for DVXuser-sanctioned public screenings. Deliverables must be formatted as16:9 or 2:35 anamorphic in the requested file format.
Contest open to every country and films may be in any language. Non-English films must have English subtitles.
All films must be made between Feb 1, 2006 and MAY 30, 2007 and must not have been publicly screened prior to entry. The entry deadline is MAY 31, 2007 and no films or revisions to films will be accepted after this date. Entry instructions will be posted closer to the deadline.
Films may only be promoted on DVXuser.com before screening and no actual footage from films may be screened prior to the DVXuser screening. No promotion on external web sites is allowed until after the screening has been completed.
Films may be entered in other festivals as long as they arenít screened prior to May 31, 2007.

No banana requirement?

I was hoping for more "requirements" this time. But I'll bite...
Rob- Does Robert or Bob count?
Is the "strictness" of the spy idea going to make us watch 100s of Bond wannabe shorts or is the idea espionage and spying as was suggested earlier?
BTW-can anyone help me with muzzle flashes in post?"From now on, I will make films I want to watch."

Rock'n! Funny, Robert (assuming we can have Robert instead of Rob, since it's just a fuller version of the name?), was going to be one of our character names anyway!Norm Sanders

aaah! I almost wet my pants when I saw the rules are out! Time to put a movie together and get a thread started!!
p.s. Robert sounds more to a spy to me than Rob.
