The 'I Like to Experiment' Rumble! ended over 3 years ago

Let's try something different - We're giving 20 Piggies to the person who comes up with the best new film tipster in the next month! Read on for details...

Experimenting with films is fun – So for this rumble we want you to do something completely crazy with your film and write a tipster about it. Smear the roll with butter, leave it soaking in tomato ketchup…do whatever, but do it different! You never know, maybe your mad-scientist plan will start a whole new style of analogue photography!

All you’ve got to do is:
1. Write a Tipster about your crazy film experiment and include the sample pictures.
2. Submit it
3. Then post: “I’m a Mad Sceintist” in the comments below

Please remember, for this rumble, only post “I’m a Mad Sceintist” in the comments section AFTER you have submitted your Tipster!

The Prizes

  • The most popular film Tipster submitted between now and the rumble end date will win 20 Piggy Points
  • The 2nd and 3rd most popular Tipsters submitted will win 5 Piggies each.

Also, remember that you’ll get 5 Piggies for every Tipster we publish!

The rumble ends April 8th, 2011 and that’s no joke!

    my tip is to take a very very expired film to a very very sunny bright country, shot it and hope for the best! I submitted 10 shots of that kind, but I am too lazy to write a tipster at the moment:)

    @panelomo Thanks mate : ) ! @tomas_bates I have something that would fit nicely here, but it's a film review... May I submit it ?

    @Stouf - Could you adapt it from being a review to being a Tipster? If you can show how this film you talk about can help you create cool photos then yes please submit it as a Tipster and post 'I'm a mad scientist' here! But it's got to be submitted as a Tipster I'm afraid - Hope that's OK :-)
