THESE FILMS WILL BE UPLOADED TO BE VIEWED ON WESTERNS ON THE WEB AND VOTED ON BY THE PUBLIC AND BY A SECRET PANEL OF QUALIFIED WESTERN FILM JUDGES!
Here are some of the guidelines. (We may be adding to these guidelines over the next few months.) First we have a quote from our favorite western author – Louis L’amour.
“(I’VE WRITTEN ALL THESE STORIES WITHOUT ANY SMUT, WITHOUT ANY OBSCENITY. I GREW UP AMONG SAILORS AND MINERS AND LUMBERJACKS AND THE ROUGHEST KIND OF MEN IN THE WORLD, BUT I NEVER FOUND IT NECESSARY TO USE ALL THAT IN THE STORIES. I CAN MAKE THEM REAL WITHOUT THAT. I THINK MUCH OF THAT KIND OF WRITING IS A COVER UP FOR LACK OF REAL SKILL!)” – Louis L’amour.
We feel the same way! All the classic western movies and TV shows that are timeless the whole family can watch together! So other than the film having to be a western that is our BIGGEST RULE!
1 – FICTIONAL WESTERN DRAMA or FICTIONAL WESTERN COMEDY (preferably but not required to be episodic in nature) 20 – 30 MINUTES IN LENGTH (No Longer Than 30 Minutes!)
2 – MAKE A WESTERN FILM THE WHOLE FAMILY CAN WATCH! (Stick to the guidelines of the classic TV westerns from the late 1950’s and early 1960’s is the easiest way to state this!)
3 – KEEP THE LANGUAGE and VISUALS CLEAN! (We cannot stress this enough! FOUL LANGUAGE or VISUALS WILL DISQUALIFY THE FILM!)
4 – FIVE COPIES OF THE FILM ON DVD MUST BE MAILED TO US AND POST MARKED NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 31, 2015.
ALL FORMS MUST BE FILLED OUT!
ALL AUTHORIZED INDIVIDUALS must sign a consent and waiver for use!
IF ANY OF THESE RULES OR REGULATIONS ARE NOT ABIDED BY YOUR FILM WILL BE DISQUALIFIED!
