Structured like most film comps 7d7n reads like an already familiar competition programme.
A few essential changes are very clearly visible...
Once registered and paid, Teams may make contributions to The Collective Pool of Awesome. Seven (7) contributions only per Team.
Once entered, your Contributions cannot be edited, deleted or exchanged. Replacements are not permitted.
Moderation is in effect for CPA contributions, unsuitable/offensive contributions will be deleted.
All Team-members MUST bring CASH MONEY to the Film Budget. Team members will contribute not less than $20 &
not more than $2,000 per person to their teams ‘above-the-line’ budget. Schools Team budgets (Primary, Intermediate & High schools)
begin at $5 per person & not more than $2,000 per person per team member. (Yeah, right...)
The Film Budget is for addressing ‘above-the-line’ costs. ‘Above-the-line’ means ‘in-front of the camera’ costs: wardrobe, hair, make-up, pyrotechnics, set construction, kit hire, special effects, actor fees, location travel, communication costs, event access costs, consumables,
yaddy yaddy yadda.
Gifted or free items and services, if they are sourced from 'outside' of your Team, are not subject to this limit, all payments from the Film Budget must be accounted for in The Production Report required by Day 5. Persons or businesses may be paid for their services, skills and equipment where applicable. The Film Budget cash is collected directly by the Team Leader, or a suitably nominated person.
