Here’s how it works!
Every Monday you will select a sound clip relating to the weeks theme, then you will shoot your reference, plan your shot, and block it in and post it on the blog by the end of Monday.
You must post your progress on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday in order to get feedback. Those participating are encouraged to critique everyone’s work on the checkup days which are Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
This is a fast paced test, so keep it simple! Keep it short! Make smart decisions and show what’s important. Most of all have fun!
