ANTM Cycle 2, Challenge 9: Epic Movie
« on: June 08, 2015, 11:08:51 AM »
Please consult the elimination thread here before reading!

You have made it to the final challenge for Cycle 2, but there are still three of you left so how is this going to work?

For this challenge, you are going to provide TWO completely different photos.

Your first photo will be a red carpet glamour photo. This photo should be completely fashion-centric with very minimal background. The focus of the photo is your model in her best red carpet glam, showing us all you've learned about composition and posing. The first photo will only be evaluated by the judges and will determine our top two models. This means that photo reveal day likely WILL NOT be the same day that submissions are due, and will probably be 1-2 days later instead. I will post in Shoutbox when voting begins.

But why is your model on the red carpet? Why, it's for her movie premiere! The second photo you will be providing to us is a still from your model's upcoming movie debut. This can be any type of movie you want, as long as it stays within MHA content guidelines (i.e. her movie is not above PG-13). This is a movie still so it will likely be a much more action-oriented shot. (Please note: I am not saying that this has to be an action movie, ALL movies have action because otherwise you'd be sitting on the couch watching people on your screen sit on their couch.) The two models the judges choose will have their movie still photo posted to this thread and the fan vote only will decide the winner from the top two.

The main criteria you will be judged on for this challenge: how well you met the challenge specifics and how well you have paid attention to the lessons we've taught you in this cycle. Additionally, you must consult with Gabby on your concepts before submitting your photos.

Because you will be submitting two photos, I am giving you an extra week to work. Photos are due to me on THURSDAY, June 25th by 12 noon, Pacific Standard Time. Late entries will not be counted and will therefore be disqualified. PLEASE do not post them here, submit them in a PM to me.

Please keep your photos at a reasonable size. The longest dimension should be 800 pixels. I am available to help if you have any questions. You will receive a point deduction if you do not resize your photo.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

How are you ghouls doing?

Ankhara and I are doing well getting ready to shoot her movie premier photos tonight.  I am still working on settling on her movie but have it narrowed down and one last potential idea submitted for approval.  So many choices it it is just so hard to decide on one lol.  I hope that Nina and Isadora's concepts are also progressing well. Doing the two photos is pretty nerve wracking but fun.

This is the first day off I've had in a while so I've been plugging away at this challenge. I'm a little over half way done. The red carpet one is finished and I'm mostly happy with it.

I've got everything staged and dressed for the movie one. I'm missing one item for it that I've got to somehow find in my MLP storage (totally not a hint to my movie-there are no actual ponies in my movie!). Plus I've got to work on my placement and shot angles. The trick is to somehow make this shot really look like a movie still. Hopefully I'll finish up tomorrow or Tuesday night. 

I think Isadora is more excited about this challenge than me. She's got the easy part- look pretty. I'm the one that has to do all the work!   ;)

LOL NoodleMore.  I also finished my red carpet premier shot and am currently working on the movie still.  I still have so much work to do!  I am still conceptualizing the scene.  I think it is all starting to come together but as the clock keeps ticking I just feel like I am running behind.  I am sure once I start putting the set together I will find that I am farther along than I think I am lol.

*Phew!* 
Well, I finally have my movie photo done.  I decided to tackle that one first since I knew that it would be the most time-consuming/labor-intensive.  I literally just finished it like five minutes ago. lol

My gown is finished for the red carpet shot.  I just need to shoot and edit and that one will be finished as well.

Is anyone else exhausted? lol

I am shooting my movie still tonight  :freak: Between travel with work, and Father's Day Weekend I have been really busy not to mention that I was really torn between two concepts and had a heck of a time making my mind up as to which would fit Ankhara better.  Thank goodness for Gabby and her patience with me and my multitude of questions.  Once I decided on my basic concept I then came up with a full premise that would make sense in my mind as to what the movie was about so I could select a couple of scenes to try to get a still from.  I have my fingers crossed that all goes smooth tonight, and I am really excited about my concept so it should be a really fun shoot for me.

I am also exhausted, all I have to say is thank goodness for adrenaline lol.

Once I decided on my basic concept I then came up with a full premise that would make sense in my mind as to what the movie was about so I could select a couple of scenes to try to get a still from.

I did this, too. XD 
I worked up a plot for my film and then turned it over to my husband who created a "trailer".  Then I used the trailer to pull my scene.

Same here, Shahaila. 
I am both sad to see the competition ending because I had so much fun, and simultaneously relieved to have taken my last photo for a while.  At least of Nina.  As much as I love her I think that she and I need to see other people for a while. XD

Just to give everyone a heads up: voting will begin tomorrow, Friday (June 26) and will last until the following Thursday (July 2). The winner will be revealed on Friday, July 3. HOWEVER, I will be setting up the poll so that it will not close before the winner is revealed, but any votes made after Midnight PST on July 2 will not be counted (I will take a screenshot). So please make sure you vote between June 26 and July 2.

Post Merge: June 26, 2015, 11:47:27 AM

Voting is now open, and will close on July 2.

The final photos are stunning - very hard to choose between them.

(shall use the tried-and-true method of "eeny-meeny-miny-mo"  :biggrin: to pick, I think)
