Of course I investigated and here is there reply:

'Dear Pigment,
What a wonderfully creative project you are working on, and thank you for submitting your film.
I'd love to learn more about your work and this teen second life project! It sounds really innovative!!!
Well as far as our film contest, it does UNFORTUNATELY, have to be a ONE minute film. Is it possible for you to edit your video down to 1 min, like a promo or a teaser for the main film? You can event embed a url so kids can find the full film...'

So I am happy to edit the Hindenburg down to 1 mins and submit!

Very encouraging response - will be interesting to see what a 1 min version of the hindenburg looks like - will be quite hard to capture the ambience ...

I made the 1 minute version, however I can not fill in the forms, any volunteers?


'Hi Pigment
OPen U needs to contact them with the form and ask them to fill it in...
The question there will be WHAT happens to the money if the film wins, who gets the money...  it should be the KEY people who made the film....If they win, we will need ID proof of age...'

As I wasn't involved in the actual making of the film, as I couldn't make it in world, I don't think it's right that I fill in the forms. It should be someone who was actively involved so they get the money. Sorry Pigment  :-\

Hey Baso, that would be good...ty:-)

If you go to the site:    http://www.icubed.us/node/gallery/1174    and go to Register you can download the form.
But please wait till Peter is back before you give out the personal data, just let's double confirm with him.

Peter can fill in the second form to pay $10 entry fee...but I am happy to do so too...

Thanks Pigment.

I find it very atmospheric. In fact, I think I prefer it to the longer version.

I'll try to get it up on screen in ReLIVE this afternoon.
