Facebook Fan Page!

Today we launch our Facebook Fan Page! This will not replace the Facebook Group, it’s just that Facebook actually prevents me from sending out updates now due to our size (5000+). I have planned a bunch of projects and other fun things and they’ll all be more successful if I can quickly update all of you about them. So join the Fan Page if you want to show your support for the site and especially if you want to be involved in any of our upcoming projects or even help plan some of them.

The Facebook Group will continue to be the place to promote yourself and post links to things you think will inspire others!

The postcards are all beautifully printed, gloss finish, and come in packs of 5 – each individually sealed and then shipped in a stiff cardboard package so they won’t be all bent when you get them.

Project #6 – Pixel Portraits!

Here’s the first bunch of great “pixel portraits” submitted to Project #6! I especially like the ones from the few films I don’t recognize. If you’re gonna submit one, get in nice and close to the screen or zoom in – the more pixelated the better (instructions here) See how many you know…

Project #6 – Pixel Portraits!

Here is Booooooom Project #6! Pixel Portraits! Throw on one of your favourite movies. Pause it. Pull out your camera (make sure the flash is off). Snap a portrait of one of the actors (depending on your shutter speed you may need to try several times before you get one without a dark bar moving across the image).

Upload your photo using the form below! Make sure you include your name but don’t worry about including the movie title or character’s name, part of the fun will be everyone else trying to guess. Once there are several submissions I will post the gallery and the guessing game can begin.

I don’t want screenshots from a computer, I want portraits shot with a camera in all their pixelated glory!

Do you know the title of this movie? The character’s name? (Bonus points awarded if you know the line of dialogue.)
