Would anybody want to do a movie swap. Basically you would name your top 5 favorite movies and your partner would craft based on those. You would probably need to name your favorite scenes as well to help if they haven't seen it (or they could rent it).  I would organize (once i complete my two swaps right now). I would probably limit to 25 just because I've never organized. It would be 1 Large 1 Med and 1 Small. Just let me know if any of you are interested and if I get a good number of you I might start it. Any suggestions are welcome.

I'm a huge film lover so I would totally do this. I would love to watch some new movies too, I love swaps where you discover and learn new things!

Yes yes and double yes.

I'm SO in. I'm doing my first swap at the moment, though. So not till at least November 2. Then I have nothing going on until after Christmas (which makes me sad) so something like this would be great.

How long for crafting, do you think? I've got a full time job and a clingy 9 month old, so I need longish crafting times (I also tend to overgift, which I'm noticing is effecting my swap). The swap I'm in now gave me a month to craft, which seems perfect. Are you opposed to that length of time? (I don't want to get excited about a swap, only too find out I can't do it, you know?)

I used to watch about 3-4 dvds a day, and get to see films before they came out in the store, its so sweet.

I feel really bad having to say this, But I don't think I can organize or participate in this swap, My step-mom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and I've been taking her place in her childrens boutique, so I've been really overworked. I don't feel like I could put my all into this swap. I'd love to see someone else organize it though.

Again very sorry

Hopefully if we can keep the thread alive, some endeavoring soul will orgainze for us!  I would love to do this.  As part of my job I review movies so I can usually get some fun movie swag and craft off of that!  For example, I just got a poster for Elizabeth: The Golden Years and am thrilled because now I have art for my walls...lol.

it isnt that hard.  You just have to narrow it down to a genre.


here is how we got our collection so large.

Previewed!


Our previewed store is next to Target.  So kids go to Target and shoplift stuff and go and sell it to the store. (or so I hear) and then we buy them brand new at a fraction of cost.  OR go to blockbuster and buy 5 for 20.

They take them back if they are scratched.

We did that once... we picked 3 movies and had so much trouble picking a fourth (effectively free) movie... the choices were REALLY bad....

i'd be interested in doing this but am having trouble coming up with ideas as to what exactly you could make based on a movie besides a tshirt or other things like that. anyone else brainstorm about ideas yet? maybe you could help me out a little. and did anyone else ever step in to organize or is everyone still waiting?

I don't believe we have an organizer yet.  As for project ideas, I think it totally depends on the movie.  If someone's favorite movie is "V for Vendetta," you might make something (bag/scarf/hat/sweater/toaster cover) with that logo on it or in the shape of V's mask.  If someone's favorite movie is "You've got mail" you could make a cool mail organizer or a clutch shaped like an envelope (I may do this anyway now...lol).  If a character had a really sweet jewelry or bag, that's game too.  I'm sure we'd all be able to help with ideas when the time comes anyway!

I understand.. I have done that before.  I have passed on a swap because I couldnt thing of anything to make for it.. then I see the gallery and think "duh" to myself.  sometimes I over think things.

Hmm...I'm interested in this one. I just completed a Punk swap where I found some very cool new music. I'd love to find new movies.

what's the status on this swap?

Hm.. this is another possibility for me! I am a movie junkie. But a top 5.. hm.. I think 28 Days Later would be in there, because I can envision soem marvellous things made from that (in fact, I have at least one thing inspired by the movie on my wists!)
