WHAT IS IT?
The 'Pass the Ball' was not a competition, it was a short movie made by the Hash forum in 2006. The criteria was simple... have a ball, or similar object- enter from frame LEFT, have your character(s) interact with it for a few seconds, and have it exit frame RIGHT. Will Sutton then cut the entries together with some music and came-up with this:
PASS THE BALL
I have volunteered to collect and compile the clips (Unless someone else really wants to.). We have a musician who has volunteered music... at this point we are having a healthy/positive conversation about the simple rules... those being:
-participants will make a unique cartoon/movie with the ball entering screen-left(your left) interacting in the screen (whatever you want) and exiting screen right.
-participants can enter as many as they want.
-movie parameters: 864W X 486H @ 30 frames-per-second (3 second minimum/9 maximum)... we will place this on Youtube HD. The final copy will also be made available at D1 letterboxed resolution for those wishing to burn a DVD.
- A 'ball' will be made available as a common file. However, those wishing to use their OWN model as the 'ball' can do so.
-Movie files will be sent via electronic delivery by JUNE 1, 2009. ( to a yet undetermined address)
If these rules sound 'jiggy' with everyone...away we go!
