What I learned this year

they're more tv genres than film genres. personally i want to come out of the weekend with a short film that can hopefully stand on it's own outside of the context of the comp. that's a short film, not a scene from a bad tv show.

one year there was drama - which i guess would be the corresponding genre - but lots of people complained that it was too broad, which i guess it kind of is since really, every other genre that isn't doco comes under it.

Failure rate?

We were on a laptop this year and it took 13 minutes. Anything over 20 minutes and something is really wrong!

April 48hours? Better or worse?

We were definitely a lot less prepared this year, however I prefer the new April shooting weekend regardless.

Almost every other year the weather has been awful and that has had a truly massive impact on the films and it makes scheduling the shooting really difficult.

Good weather is so, so important.

I reckon as long as they keep it in April, people will be much more prepared next year. People always complain about change - next year once people are more used to it I reckon the benefits will seem a lot more obvious.

The great 2014 Poster thread!

When we drew it I was actually really excited 'cause I've been so in love with the new Muppets movie since it came out and felt like it was an opportunity to get that out of my system, but the process ended up being way more complicated that I could have possibly imagined. I really don't have a musical bone in my body. We were still shooting at midday on Sunday which we've never ever done before. So stoked with the finished product though :D

Did you pre-record guide tracks or record songs on set?

What Would You Change in the 48 Hours Comp?

i think the only change that i feel strongly in favour of is moving the competition to summer.

Projector Issue in Memorial Theatre (Wellington)

well i would hazard a guess that less teams would be affected if the guys TCGD (i've never heard that term before, just copying and pasting) was set to rgb and not 709.

keep in mind i'm just a post nerd and know next to nothing about dc projectors.

Projector Issue in Memorial Theatre (Wellington)

i think color space should be included in the technical rules next year.

specifically whether the hand in quicktimes should be full gamut rgb or rec 709, cause i don't think that was clear.

i bet most people hand in full gammut rgb (0-235) (including us) and of course when played on a projector calibrated for rec 709 (16-235) that will have a bad gamma shift and look way too dark and crushed.

xyz is only relevant to dcp files, so that shouldn't be anything?

if it was an rgb or 709 to xyz thing the issue would be way worse than just a gamma shift or being too dark - the colors would actually be totally different. you would know.

rec 709 is a broadcast standard but would look washed out on a computer screen.
