Welcome friends to VCN: Lite! It’s pretty much the same as the old VCN except with a new, brighter background! I didn’t really like it at first but the blue and white grew on me fast. I think it makes the site feel cleaner and more cheerful.
And speaking of being cheerful, you know what would really fill me with cheer? Winning $500 thanks to Mofilm’s new referral plan. If you refer a friend to Mofilm and if they go on to win a Mofilm contest, you’ll get 500 bucks. To refer someone you just need to click this link: http://mofilm.com/info/referralprogramme and then enter their e-mail address. I wanted to make sure that the e-mail Mofilm sends out wasn’t too spammy or annoying so I had an invitation sent to myself. Here’s the e-mail I got:
That’s a nice, short, not-at-all spammy message. As you can see, if you send out an invite your own name will appear at the bottom of the e-mail they’ll receive. I think that little bit of personalization is a nice touch. It will probably deter people from just blindly referring every filmmaker they’ve ever met.
But anyway, back to VCN: Lite. If you don’t like the site’s bright new look, just e-mail me and I’ll send you a copy of the old, dark-blue JPEG I used to use as a background. Then you can tile it in photoshop, print out some strips and then tape them on your screen whenever you visit VCN.
