Reviewers' Pyramid Scheme

in reply to themorgan:

You would say that wouldn't you.
Typical Aucklander....
I hate you and your success. And your films, Christ, they make me sick, with their cleverness, professionalism and high quality production values.

Reviews Page

One addition to the reviews page I would like it a more direct way to review multiple films from the same heat.
I found that once I had reviewed one it was a pain in the butt to get back to the relevant heat page.
Could there be a linked button called "Back to this heat" pop up after you've reviewed the film? Obviously this would be less relevant for reviewers who are using the screening room

Nice work Nick.
I think it is a nice addition.
I'd limit the size of the comment to something fairly small.

GRAND FINALISTS and NOMINEES 2014

The 4 from Wellington were the ones I thought were the best.
Good luck to all the finalists (especially the Wellington crew).

Christchurch City Finalists + Award Nominees 2014

in reply to Mista Teas:

Indeed I did.
I picked last year's win and I stand by my pick again this year.
I thought there were 4 very impressive Wellington films at the finals, but 'Rubble' is smart, extremely well executed and powerful. I rate it highly.

I know its impossible to pick when I haven't seen the other centres, but for one to beat 'Rubble' its gonna have to be fricken incredible. The noises coming out of Auckland suggest they are confident too. Bodes well for the comp as a whole!

Wellington City Finalists and Nominees

in reply to bexxgirl:

I felt all of the actors were solid in that film.

The 3 place getters were all impressive short films; Well conceived and executed.

Wellington has the national winner again. Noise and pictures- you have made an awesome film.
Blown away. Simple, yet not. Serious, yet funny. Story is king. Well deserved on the win.

Happy Birthday Copyright

Having spoken recently with someone in the copyright industry his advice was to leave anything like this well alone.
For a competition like this its a absolute nightmare of a door to open.

All films need to be clean. It only takes one record company to take offence and the lawyers will be all over it like a rash.

Disqualification

I like the way the comp is run. I have no issue with the set up or the rules.

The only issues I have are the run it time given (I'd like more warning- but this might be legitimately impossible), and bring back the DVD's.

I know the screening room is good, but for those (like me) who enter and don't come anywhere it is a memento of the comp. A little bit like a certificate you can stick on your wall. I know this is flogging a dead horse, but hey ho.

At least I didn't have an obviously copyrighted piece of work in my film. Maybe that's the way to win awards- it works in the Taranaki.

Next year I'll enter in the Naki, use Bob Dylan's songs (I got them off youtube...) and have Mickey Mouse shagging Ronald McDonald...

Disqualification

Count me in for the Summer Film School.
Happy to help/learn.
Consider myself experienced at the comp, yet sadly lacking in success... One day...

Disqualification

in reply to nimlin:

You've been gone?

In other news, I hope someone significant in the hierarchy of the comp is going to act swiftly on this, before the entire competition is put at risk.

Amazed that the way Taranaki (read the city manager and judges) have let this through. Gobsmacked at the incompetence and recklessness of it.

If the organisers of a city don't know the basics of copyright then they shouldn't be organisers.

It should be a priority of the national organisers to ensure that things like this are drummed into their city managers.
