    Hmm lets check the rules

    1. Shooting must be done on location. Props and sets must not be brought in (if a particular prop is necessary for the story, a location must be chosen where this prop is to be found). Props!
    2. The sound must never be produced apart from the images or vice versa. (Music must not be used unless it occurs where the scene is being shot.)
    3. The camera must be hand-held. Any movement or immobility attainable in the hand is permitted.
    4. The film must be in colour. Special lighting is not acceptable. (If there is too little light for exposure the scene must be cut or a single lamp be attached to the camera). Special lighting
    5. Optical work and filters are forbidden.
    6. The film must not contain superficial action. (Murders, weapons, etc. must not occur.)
    7. Temporal and geographical alienation are forbidden. (That is to say that the film takes place here and now). Temporal shenanigans
    8. Genre movies are not acceptable.
    9. The film format must be Academy 35 mm. I assume it isn't
    10. The director must not be credited.

    Hmmm

    1. As far as I'm aware, all props are already at the location and not brought in specifically.
    4. Special lighting? Where's that then?
    7. Filming relates specifically to the current day in a real company. No shenanigans there.
    9. Err... ok

    But even Thomas Vinterberg and Laars Von Triers, the founders of Dogme 95, broke their own rules on occasions:

    Examples - Vinterberg covered up a window and brought in special lighting for a scene in 'Festen' (Brilliant film, btw)
    Von Triers added music Camille Saint-Saens 'The Swan' to the soundtrack of 'The Idiots' (Another brilliant, yet deeply disturbing, film)

    Ye cultured bugger you!

    Been known to partake of a bit of the Dogme directors in my time myself. Generally not for the faint hearted, but sometimes very compelling stuff.

    ...and let's say that we do shoot in 35 mil. Let's just say that. STOCKTOBER2! a Dogme 95 certified thingy.

    Perhaps its my interpretation.[/quote]

    They have a lighting..thing don't they?

    I was reffering to a previous episode where there was talk of temporal...stuff. There's too much to look through to quote

    *ahem* This is the point when you're supposed to say, in a Bullseye with Jim Bowen stylee,

    "I've had a smashing time, but I think I'll take what I've got and give someone else a try..."
