What? You love Christmas, but not for the presents? crazy That doesn't make sense!













Just kidding. I actually like that idea. I'd pm Tarn about this, he might put it up in the news section.

Perhaps start getting a competition topic going in the general topics forum. wink

Good idea though but I won't be entering.

Hmm, yeah this could be a good idea, although people would have to get creative so the movies aren't all pretty much exactly the same thing... like the thousands of hollywood christmas movies that are all exactly the same.

I think it sounds like a good idea. But Jabooza is right, people need to get creative. But judging from all the various ideas I've heard in the forums, that shouldn't be too hard. wink

I will work something out, don't worry.

And I'll be sure to credit you. Expect a thread/website/signature/avatar and stuff for this all in the next two days. And I'll try to get some prizes together.

I'm drafting something that I think could turn out pretty funny. It still has a holiday theme though.

Count me in then! Unless we are limited to creating brand new videos for this project, that is. Will you be accepting submissions of older projects?

Depends upon how old, pixelboy. I'll get a thread up tomorrow, you can ask questions there.

No worries!

I'm sorry to be an ass, but we're busy right now with college applications due today and tomorrow. Not being able to get a thread up is understandable.

Instead of disdainfully moping around and acting like it won't happen, why don't you first either ask what's up or do it yourself.
