OK, Chrono and ferret, you seriously made me laugh. Which is quite an accomplishment, making me laugh at 6:30 in the morning....when I haven't had my second cup of coffee yet! :D:p

Less than 4 and half hours remain for the confirmations deadline, and it looks less likely that we might see more contestants.

The first Test will be up shortly afterwards, Ogres. You better be ready!

Some Important Announcements


01 - It is not necessary for you to be online when the Tests are being posted. However, you must turn in your entry before the given deadline expires, so that the Judges can comment on them. This is imperative for all Tests which have a deadline - as regards live performances, that will require you to be online when you stand in front of the Judges to be judged.

02 - Initially, there will be 3 Qualifying tests. Needless to say, all 3 tests will have scores by all judges, and the Top 3 scorers from each group (plus 2 wildcards) move into the Individual Elimination stage.

03 - Each qualifying test will have a deadline of 72 hours and so, you have to be online at least once in that time period.

04 - The Judges are free to criticize you, even when they might secretly admire your entries. Take that in your stride, or you may lose important points with the Judges.

05 - Try to do some research and put some thought into your entries, before PMing them to me to be judged. Bland, randomly-put words can irritate the Judges plus add to you losing valuable points.


Good luck!

Without further ado, let me first introduce you to your Judges.


THE JUDGES

Judge Neverending,

Judge Hammerfan,

and...

Judge "Someone"!
(a secret 3rd Judge who wishes to remain unknown, for now)


And now, we go forward straight to the FIRST TEST for the OGRES!!

THE FIRST TEST OF HDC IDOL II - THE OGRES


I stand here to address the Ogres. Each one of you will be given a task which you have to perform to the best of your ability, intellect and inventive-ness , based upon the knowledge you have of the genre.

For this first task, the common theme I have chosen is - ADAPTATION.

Here is your task, Ogres -

Choosing from all the books of the genre you have read till now, pick a book and turn it into a suitable horror film with a working story outline. You are free to make necessary changes which might enhance the look of the film, and make it appeal to wider audiences worldwide.

So Ogres - Despare, Roshiq, Zombieness, Fortunato, Leezuki and Fearonsarms - put your thinking caps on. Time to get creative and go to work.

Once you are finished, please PM your entry to me, or send it via email to ravenavi@gmail.com. Do NOT post your entry directly in this thread.

You all have 72 hours, starting from NOW! All the best!
