    I bet Kodak loves the idea...

    That reminds me, I should get some cartridges for that camera I picked up for $4 at a yard sale...

    Reminds me of my old film class in college - we had projects with the same constraints - very cool stuff came out of it. Some films were trash - others brilliant.

    There's a place now here in Chicago that has a great film contest once a year. You have 24 hours to write a script, shoot, edit and score your film. Then they have a festival screening of all the submissions - again a mix of crap and quality.

    I think my favorite was their first year where they gave each crew a list of props and sayings that HAD to be in the film - something like:

    - box of Mr. T cereal
    - man in wheelchair and/or midget
    - 40 oz of Old English
    - "what's that smell?"

    etc. very, very funny submissions that year.

    is this a case of the film manufacturers trying to get their own back on the video industry & put us video editors out of a job! :D

    Thats a cool idea, If I had an 8mm camera I would enter I if I lived in the UK. I wish we had something like that here in the US. Except maybe allow digital cameras, but no editing! Ah the possibilities.
