2014? What do we want from the comp?

in reply to themorgan:

I didn't see any decent Grindhouse from a few years ago. Can anyone think of one I should check out?

I do agree with you though- the genre doesn't matter, unless it has unique demands (like period drama would).

If 'Shakespeare' was a genre you could always simply modernise it.

Although, I do 'fear' musical for the reason that Linden suggests- it places so much emphasis on that one component. But hey ho, if I get it, I get it and just have to do the hard yards and make it a kick-ass one.

2014? What do we want from the comp?

Since our 48 hour comp has turned into a 49 hour one, what's the bet on a 'time travel' genre this year?

Or would this be considered a 'Big Twist'?

What "filmmaking related" websites do you follow?

in reply to LindenFilm:

I have a friend who attended and he loved it- but this was about 5 years ago.
It is quite expensive from what I recall, but he did get a lot out of it.
I'd hit them up for a tour and ask to speak to some current students. If you're going to be forking out for a course you have the right to know what to expect.

in reply to Craig:

I think that films that present a strong example of the genre should be rewarded.

One that nods in the direction of the genre should be taken with a larger grain of salt.

Having said that, with genres like One Shot (which I thought was awesomely done) are either spot on or not. In these cases its how well they work the exploit the genre for the maximum effect, which in essence is what I mean with a 'strong example.'

TOTALLY agree that the rules page needs a massive tidy up. This has been mentioned on here for the last couple of years....

in reply to jamwal95:

Would prefer this to 7pm start, 6pm finish.
Would also avoid those idiots turning up at 6:45pm and therefore missing the deadline.

I thought one shot came up with good films also.
On the surface they seem uber hard, but once embraced they can fly

2014? What do we want from the comp?

The time has come ladies and gents, to put on our thinking caps and dream about what we want from the comp.

I'm keen for some classic genres- heist, western, revenge, slapstick, and film noir

I'd also like it to be stormy, none of this good weather rubbish. I want wind and rain.
OR
I'd like it in early April and the weather to be stunning.

Ideas people?

Is this the ghost of Vic Meyer, with neither of you getting enough sleep?

Return of the Trifecta Thread

It stood for the chance to talk shit in a confined space without incurring the wrath of the other forum members.
Note how the forums have died in the last month or so?
The Trifecta thread always ticked over.

I am more disappointed in the fact that the freedom it represented has gone.
