    Hey everyone I couldn't remember my pw, but I figured it out. Can't believe it's been a year already. Good luck to all who enter this year!

    Hah!

    On the bumper: Unbeknowst to me, something I did recently made it so QuickTime files wouldn't play sound, and it was really weird without it. Now that the music's there, though, I really like it :) Nice job!

    Le sigh... I guess now is as good a time as any to say that we were planning a surprise entry but were thwarted by weather and lack of crew this week. We were going to see what we could do in a matter of a few days; kinda opposite of last year... we had roto guys standing by and everything. Hard to do much when you have nothing shot though. We even had the most lens flarey title cards already done...

    You now know what you missed people!

    Oh we still want to do it. Just won't be in LCC. Unless we pull it off before next weekend and DiF can give their thoughts but not include it in the judging.

    //I just want their approval! :_|

    //not really

    I feel like there will oddly be less than 10 entries this year. Deadline tomorrow no?

    Bummer! I was just wondering recently if you would enter, but figured you would take a break after the amazing vid you made last year. Hope we can still see it soon!

    I have to extend the deadline by 24 more hours. I only have 7 entries.

    Well darn, if I knew that a few day ago, I may have actually been able to throw something together. Labor-day weekend was my only free time this summer--figure that one out.

    Any shot at extending it through labor day? I planned to be out of town today because of the deadline so the 24 wouldn't help me, but I could definitely drive back tonight

    We are also in!

    Also, to pass the time as we all wait for the entries and judging, busy yourself by watching some bloopers and alternate scenes from our entry last year!

    Rivals bloopers

    Well as long as we're reminiscing about last year... these were already shared on Facebook but not here, if I recall correctly.

    So, how many entries are there?

    7 entries in all. Significantly lower than previous years.

    Lowest since LCC1. Seeing how the board has slowed down considerably, it's to be expected. Perhaps we should brainstorm ideas to open the contest up to the public more for the grand LCCX. Getting the contest on tfn main page or some such. Idk, this is an annual blast that I'd rather not see wane.

    I said the same thing a few pages ago and got slammed. I hope they treat you the same way (for consistencies sake, come on guys, prove you're reasonable!)

    I agree with you (which probably hurts your argument around here), if the LCC is going to continue it will have to be promoted more widely.

    What I think would help would be categories like "Best New Entrant" for an entry by someone who's never entered the LCC before. I also think we all know some filmmakers who've never made a lightsaber fight before and we could spread the word and get them interested in entering.

    Also, just checking something...

    LCCI: 6 (7 including Darth_Knight)
    LCCII: 10 (13 including disqualified entries)
    LCCIII: 27! (28 including Saber Fight 2004)
    LCCIV: 15
    LCCV: 17 (18 including Ramsaur)
    LCCVI: 13 (14 including Between Light and Darkness)
    LCCVII: 15
    LCCVIII: 14
    LCCIX: 7

    Yeah, it was consistent up until this year. This drop is startling, but possibly not representative of a downward trend. (was there a big drop in board activity starting last year?)

    To be fair, how many more than seven entires last year were worth watching?
