Now is a good time to get your Team intro made. This is also an excellent time to test your gear and your crew. Your team intro can be any length up to 20 seconds. This is a chance for the entire crew to get up on the Big Screen at the City heats. Just make sure you include it with your film before the deadline at 7pm Sunday 3rd May. (have a look at some Team Intro styles from previous years on our Vimeo channel.


WIN A WRAP PARTY AT YOUR PLACE!

OUT OF TOWN FOR 48HOURS?


If you live outside one of the 7 City centres you can still compete.
Register NOW as an "out of town" team and you could win party supplies!
We realise that "out of town" teams don't get to enjoy all the excitement of the Sunday 7pm hand-in like your fellow in-city participants do.
So we would like to show you a little love by shouting some food & drinks to ONE selected team from of the SEVEN regions around NZ. One random team will be picked to have wrap party supplies delivered (to one nominated address) so your cast and crew can dwell on the madness of your 48HOURS shoot!
And Rialto Channel will throw in 1 MONTH OF THEIR CHANNEL FOR FREE. (you'll need SkyTV already).
The 7 winning "out of town" teams will be announced on April 30. Registrations close April 27. Register now.
