Reminder: Community Workshop: Call for entries!

We wouldn’t be here if we didn’t love movies. Like, a lot. No doubt, then, that you have, at some point, or are currently involved with some sort of filmmaking. If you are, then Community Workshop is going to be right up your alley!

Community Workshop is an ongoing-monthly feature where we share and critique each other’s work. Every month, you guys will send us in your submissions, but here’s the deal: not everyone is, specifically, a director. That’s just one part of filmmaking. So to reflect this, if you’ve taken part at all in the filmmaking process, we want to see your stuff. Did you star in a friend’s short film? Send us in a clip! Did you compose an original song/an entire soundtrack? Let us hear! Made costumes? Let’s see them! Wrote a script? I wanna read! Did you make some fake blood for a schlock horror movie! Show us! That stuff’s hard to work with! If you took part in literally anyaspect of making a movie, we want to see it. Then, next month, we’ll take one, or maybe more, of them, put them on display and have a group workshop. You can even get some…

This is the internet. We know you’re all anonymous, and that’s just tits. That said, when we’re workshopping for Community Workshop, we’re looking at stuff that took blood, sweat, and tears. So we’re asking you, in advance, to follow some guidelines.

  1. Don’t steal. That sucks. Don’t suck, everyone. On top of that, don’t submit something you had nothing to do with and pass it off as your own. That is also stealing. There is a special hell waiting for plagiarists, and it involves butt plugs. Big, fiery ones.
  2. Give constructive criticism. That means if you hate something, don’t say you hate it and leave. Say what doesn’t work. If you like it, don’t just say it’s awesome and go. Tell us what you think makes it work so well.
  3. On the same note, if your work is being criticized in the aforementioned civil manner, don’t take it personally.

Send your work in to me at [email protected]. We’ll keep open for entries until November 19th, with hopes of posting stuff for a workshop the week after Thanksgiving. To make things interesting, our choice for the workshop will receive a Tron: Legacy mini-poster signed by the screenwriters, Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, along with a Flynn’s Arcade token made especially for the Disney Parks Blog event that I covered last week. You can check those out in the gallery below. If you have any questions in regards to sending material, or anything else, comment below or shoot me an e-mail. If you’re uncomfortable having older work/work in progress criticized publicly, well, don’t submit it! We will kill your darlings, and trust me; that’s a good thing.
