The submission for the OneDotZero gives a few guidelines on what is needed for the submission.


On a playable DVD
. - A preview of my short film / animation.

On a cd
. - A preview movie file, no larger than 100mb saved with extensions .mov /.avi / .mp4
. - Aselection of a minimum of 4 hi-res print quality stills (300dpi, at least 10cm)
. - Brief synopsis (approx 50 words about techniques, software, inspiration)
. - Biography (approx 50 words eg where I studied.


I plan to have this all done by the 27th.

This made me think about how to actually format my final moving image, I have never really made a dvd of specific moving image so I had no idea of what resolution to make my animation what frame rate what aspect ratio nothing really, all I was learning was how to make the animation, not how to physically produce it.

So I did some research so that I don't have to leave it to the last minute. I used videohelp to find what I needed to know.
