the 2010 pawdance film festival

hi every bloggie

I have breaking news. I am pleased to announce a spectacular event! Norwood productions is hosting it's very first festival, the 2010 Pawdance Film Festival. Yep I love watching all my bloggie pals' movies. My bloggie pals are very talented at capturing the tales of: being pest to siblings, running on the beach, training and dancing. I thought hmmm- we need to celebrate these not to be forgotten independent pawsome movies! Yeppers put on your director's hat, get your stars ready and consider entering the first Pawdance Film Festival!
Starting today I will be accepting short film clips in the following categories:

Murder and Suspense Film Series
The ultimate who done it movie? Your film goes right here.

Romantic Film Series
Calling all lovers! Do you love your sibling, toy, chasing things or foodables? All PDAs (public displays of affection) shown here.

Comedy Film Series
Are you a funny pup or kat? Your inner-self is named bozo? Your nickname is goofball? Let's see whatcha got for giggles.

That's Entertainment-
Do you dance, sing, or perform tricks? Step right up into the Entertainment category! Jazz hands permitted.

My favorite.. the ACTION film series. No words required just plain athletic prowess. Levitators line up!

And the last category Special Effects!
Anything goes! See for yourself with my quick feature film City Slickers

Here are the rules:
1- Video clips must be uploaded to Youtube or another video host to be considered. I will not accept original files.
2- Video clip length must be between 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Anything over 2 minutes will not be considered
3- You select the category for the film.
4- I will accept up to 10 eligible videos for each category. Get your entries in.. you snooze you lose.
5- The top three videos for each category will be posted for bloggie voting. Me, mr. norwood will select the top three videos for voting in each category. The winner will be selected by bloggie votes.
6. The videos can be new or old. Humans can be used in video but not as main character. The dog or cat must be the STAR!

Your Pawdance Film Festival entries can be emailed to me Please post your name, film category, movie title, brief description and video link in the message. Deadline is May 2nd or when that category is full. All videos will be displayed during the Pawdance Film Festival Week- May 10th-May14th. The winners will be announced once the voting polls close.
Finally, spread the word. Post this badge on your bloggie with a link back to this post.
Okay get your camera set on video. Let's show how pawsome we are at movie making! I'm ready to give two paws up here!
