Genres for the year?

in reply to Shifty:

That's the idea, but lets face it, some people need more than a title to jog their memories.

I like this idea and hate to throw another spanner in the works, but....
At the screenings you get a voting form with the team names on it, which includes the genre.
Obviously you could simply not put that on it, but then when it comes to voting you only have the title to remember which film is which. Although this is not tough it may be beyond some.

I'd like to think that you could simply remove it from the voting form and then your idea would be stellar

Story is King - how to win V48Hours

Mike, you won't change him.
I just ignore him.
I hope I don't get reported for this.

Referencing Pop Culture in a 48hr movie?

I seriously doubt this is an issue, so long as you do not slander someone.

Its not a copyright issue to say the words 'Kurt Cobain', but it might cause trouble if you made him out to be a kiddy fiddler.

Story is King - how to win V48Hours

Although I don't like the film, I have no issue with their 'story' as such.

It follows a fairly classic structure and it does have its charm.

The story of 'Child Jumpers' is not an issue for me. It may not have been he most original, or clever, but it did what it set out to do. Very few 48 Hours films achieve the original in story telling, but that's beside the point.

The key is to tell a story clearly and with purpose. 'Child Jumpers' did that.

Genres for the year?

I'd like to see lots of classic genres, the likes of western, war, silent, film noir, murder mystery, or period drama.

I'd also like to see time twister, Shakespearean, thriller.

Anyone got some suggestions?

I didn't like Child Jumpers.
I thought 'Sketch' was much better.

Putting your balls in a vice might make a winning movie.

What frame rate are we to use?

24 is my advice.
We're not Peter Jackson yet...

I haven't checked the technical specs recently, but suggest you do so.
If it says something there, go with that.
If not, stick with 24

Mini Steadycam

in reply to dmanthei:

Nutbar have used a very similar one and its the business.
Easy, effective.

Its not as good as a tripod, but gives great flexibility in movement.

Nutbar could use your skills.

Will get back to you in a day or so, once I have chatted to a few others.

If someone else burgles your skills before I get back to you, then good luck with them.
