Now the comps over no one cares about 'making films'

I believe that this comp is a fantastic way to build skills and the best way to use these skills is to make more films.

As a direct result of this comp and more specifically these forums, I have made several friendships and on the back of these we've made one film and have another in the pipeline.

I'm sorry that you (Nexus) have not experienced this kind of spirit. Don't give up!

Hypothetical thought...

My thinking is along the lines of that above.
I believe your suggestion would restrict the narratives too much.

Grand Finalists?

In addition to the above, I'd like to think that all finalists are at least looked at by the national judges.

Violence against women

in reply to action stations:

That dental analogy is a good one.

Violence against women

It intrigued me.

I am yet to see a 48 Hour film that in any way glorifies violence towards women, particularly in a domestic/realistic setting. I certainly cannot remember one off the top of my head. I believe that it is the glorification of the violence or the denigration of the women that is the key. If the perpetrator is shown to be wrong in their thoughts or actions, then I think it can be constructive.

The films of the comp are often dark and are often violent. I do think that the violence shown is targeting women more than men. If you consider the finals as a sample (which could easily be no reflection of the comp as a whole), there was very little violence against women. My heat also had no real violence against women that I can remember.

I appreciated his comments, but would also not like to see the comp being guided away from material. I think that film can be a powerful medium to explore the darker sides of life and believe that if films are well crafted then they can be a power for positive social change.

I think the characteristic of insomnia also played a part in the darker tone this year. Teams took the characteristic and showed the dark/negative side of the condition. I am yet to see one that has a truly happy insomniac.

I also meant to say that the quality of Orientale for a school team was mind blowing. I thought they were professionals when it first played.
The scripting was clever, the performances impressive and production values were over all very high.

I also felt that 'Bags' developed mood beautifully and could have been rewarded with more

I have never seen a 48 Hour film as good as 'The Sleeping Plot'
It was polished, clever, well acted, sounded great, looked amazing.

Traces of Nut,my hat is well and truly off.
You have set the bar so high.

in reply to Shifty:

I think this is a real shame.
Shifty has for a long time encouraged, helped, advised and been an active member of these forums.
I am lucky enough to have met him outside of the forums and his wisdom and intelligence shine through.
Catch ya later Shifty.
