    Ok, last year we only had one fanfilm submission..... are there any other chapters in the NE who would like to submit aa fanfilm this time for the 2007 awards?

    I guess I am putting this up now since it will give everyone time to maybe toss something together before the awards :)

    there is a theater here locally that is willing to show them all on one day if we have enough.
    I think it would be cool to show them to the general public like that and have them vote on it :)

    Thoughts on this ?

    If you look at the list of USA cities on this page: http://boards.theforce.net/default.asp?cat=10016
    That is what we're referring to as the NorthEast (NE) region of FanForce.
    Unfortunately Ireland doesn't count in this case. ;) [face_good_luck]

    lol right Ireland... You shouldn't be so trusting about online Profiles.. Shouldn't Michigan be in the North East?

    You're right, I tend to forget people put false information in there.
    Michigan is here http://boards.theforce.net/fanforce_usa_midwest/c10019 on these boards.

    It would be great to get a few more entries in this category.

    The link for last year's winner is in my sig. Its should inspire folks because after you watch it you should be saying to yourself "We could do better than that" [face_mischief]

    I want to remind everyone that the Fanfilms submissions are to be made by the chapter as a whole. Not by an individual.
    I actually had a few people try to submit some that arent even in FanForce. Which is why I am posting this. Hope that helps clear things up a bit. :)

    I wanted to make a fan film this summer which would be too late for this year's contest. It's problematic though. I don't belong to a chapter, because there isn't one here in northern Vermont. We're too busy trying to keep warm I guess (which is also the reason any fan film won't be filmed until milder weather, or segregate from the Union LOL. Guess I could join Massachusetts or somthing ;)

    we are waiting for one in the mail from Long Island...... we have 3 submissions total ;)
    Should be a nice variety this year :)
    I have no idea how long the LI one is. But the other 2 are both around 5 min so short and sweet :) Depending on the size of LI we may have time to play these at the awards :)

    I will be uploading them all soon and this category is technically viewers choice so, I am still trying to figure out how voting will work. I am pondering over having everyone email their votes and confirm who they are or have them PM a GSA this way no one can vote more than once.

    Thoughts?

    A poll on the forums will only allow you to vote once and you can also have a closing time.
