    No, no server script failure here, it's me, I do it. Manually.  ;)

    Anyway, the next challenge has been chosen for both Stills and Anims, 
and it's:

     'In The Wilderness' by Robert Smythe Hichens, 1846-1950. ( 
http://www.tc-rtc.co.uk/index/index.html )

     So, get your thinking caps on, and let's make it a good one for the New 
Year!  :)

      ~Steve~

And there almost wasn't one from me.  The final rendering was done mere 
hours before the deadline.  Too much Diablo II, again.

John

Thanks, St., for doing this project.  I've got my heart in it, even if I haven't
produced yet.

Early on in round: Oh my, there's SOOOO much time that I have to plan an
enormous project. Do lots of thinking.

Late in round: Eh, too late to start.

Same here :) except for me, another commitment popped up 
unexpectedly.

This afternoon, i already got a script ready for "The 
Wilderness". Again, just stealing the title, not the book ;)
Only seven or eight camera angles, only one location. Need 
to model a convincing tree and hilltop for the first time 
ever, though...

     Motivation Greg. Forget the planning. Just start it, then finish it. 
Let it build...  ;)

    I'm sure a man with your ability can do that simple task...   :)

And think things like, "there's lots of time.  No need to start today."

If it weren't for the last minute, I'd never get anything done.

John

i) Wife tells me a I gotta story board.
ii) Weren't you all baffled by the plot line all those times I used that
planning methodology for the IRTC?   :-)

Then there's the "Yeah, I can SO do this topic for once!", followed by the "Oh,
crud... where in the %$#@ am I going to squeeze this project in???"

There needs to be 600 hours per day.  That's the only way I can find time to do
all the things I'd like to do :(

A nice man named Zeno solved this problem for us a while back:

Any portion of the project not completed in the first half of the round can be
done in the second half.

Any work not completed in the third quarter can be done in the fourth.

Any work not finished by the seventh eighth can be ...

This sequence can be continued indefinitely, thus providing an infinite number
of work phases in which to complete any project by its deadline.  Therefore
there is NO excuse for failing to submit an entry like I... oh, never mind!

Best Regards,
Mike C.
