The End Is Nigh

The End Is Nigh … or In Sight anyhow.

It’s the last half of January and you should be down to final production. You’ve had many months to work on it and a few seasons to collect media from – time is close on to show us what you’ve got!

Over 50 people are registered with the site … now we’re curious how many of you have been working on something to show.
Well we’re more than curious – we need to know how many videos and how long they are so we know how much time the viewing and judging will take. And seeing as I never set up a mechanism where you could ‘officially register an entry’ I have to canvas you. If you have an entry (or two or three) please let me know.

In a few days we’ll use the feedback we’ve gotten to determine the date and time for the judging.

PS: If you’re not making a video but want to help be a booster you might think about donating to the prizes.
We could use swag or money. All the money donated goes to prizes for the media makers.
The costs of this website and miscellaneous printing and such are donations from myself, Les Johnson, and from Lorraine at Select Office Products. The Paquet’s at the Gem Theatre are donating place and time for the viewing and judging by you, the people of Grand Forks.
Lizanne Eastwood and Helen Durham have been good supporters of the community and are supporters of this effort as well. We hope there are more of you out there … if you want to help fill in the above form with a 0 in the duration, an ‘other’ in the media type and use the comments for further info.

    Les, I will help, but not back home till first week of March. You have my other email and since I have only seen Megan’s video, I feel I can be impartial. Must say she did raise the bar though.
    Hope you guys are wintering well.

    Les, I would contribute $20.00 to this site remaining. If a couple of hundred folks did the same would that cover expenses?

      Thanks for that Dennis. And sure if a couple of hundred folks did that expenses would be covered 🙂 And prize money if it was going to still run contests.
      My recent comments about this on Facebook were more along the lines of a plea for help than for dollars though.
      I’ve got too many fingers in too many pies for my limited (non existent?) time management skills and I’d really rather not see a community spirited idea come to naught. Unless there’s no community interest in which case I’m wasting my time and yours.
      I’d even go to the extent of turning it over to a group of motivated volunteers if there was one. And just become a contributor or one of the gang of town pushers / boosters.
      But if it’s time to let it go I can do that too. It wouldn’t be the first time a big chunk of my time and effort was ultimately wasted – bad word, let’s say used up in a dead end project. And I’m sure it wouldn’t be the last either …
