Rules? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Rules!

“Rules, Schmools, I’m a movie maker! I specialize in breaking the rules!”
Actually, when you’re creating something new, breaking the rules can precipitate that break-out moment when you go, “Voila! That’s exactly the mood I’m shooting for!” And in that situation, rule breaking works. But to have The Snake Alley Festival of Film run smoothly, we have to have SOME rules.
But, if you ask anyone who attended last year, the rules were a non-issue. In fact, if you were at any of the “after parties” you would have sworn that there were no rules at all. It appeared to be an “anything goes” atmosphere. If you look through the pictures posted on the website, http://www.snakealleyfestivaloffilm.com you’ll notice that everyone is laughing and having a great time. Alcohol played a small part in that, but the camaraderie, great people, and friendship played the biggest part.
As for the rules, go to the website’s home page here http://www.snakealleyfestivaloffilm.com and click on the box that says “withoutabox.” All of the entry deadlines, contact info…and, yes, “the rules” are listed there.
Will there be any rules broken this year? I wouldn’t rule it out. (I can hear the groans out there.)
