OK, make that three submissions, once i get the compression 
done... but somehow i feel a bit sad. Where did all the 
active participants go? Did i miss something?

next time...

(Almost) the same here, but then with two weeks to the 
deadline i sort of forced myself to submit at least 
something. Otherwise (me only being an after-hour animation 
hack with intermittent phases of couch-potatoism) my 
software might have begun collecting dusty bytes on the 
harddisk...

I started out with storyboarding at the beginning of 
September. Then i started moving packing cases due to a 
renovation instead ;)

In the end, two weeks ago, i threw out the original 
storyboard which i saw i wouldn't be able to complete by 
October 15th, and threw together some bits and pieces 
instead. I've found i only need to overcome my initial 
inertia to get going...
so, i managed to stretch a new effect i came up with, lots 
of camera movement on a static scene, a single odd idea plus 
a few less-than-stellar subtitled quips into a 3:40 MPEG 
with a severe case of compression wrinkles. And, well, if it 
gets accepted, it'll be entry #3 for this round ;)

While a three-entries-round makes for a fast and easy 
download, i wouldn't mind downloading significantly larger 
amounts... *wink, wink*

I'm not sure if i'd needed to hurry, because the readme file 
on the server claims September-November as animation 
timeframe (huh? two months only? more like for stills 
contest?) as well as July-October. Seems there's been some 
mix-up...

Anyway, longing for the next topic to be announced... (ah, 
anyone remembering the times of our collaborative IRTC 
t-shirt...? those were the days ;)

I've been off-line until about ten minutes ago, so I'm not in.  But my 
record for most consecutive rounds entered now stands at 19!

Regards,
John

Awww. It's just not the same without Rusty. :(
(seriously)

Hoping to see you around for the next (current...) round.
