2014? What do we want from the comp?

in reply to treefrog:

You certainly could propose such a thread. In fact, not only that, you did propose and did actually create the thread. Will wonders never cease...

Paperwork?

In regards to 'Out-of-towners'- its exactly the same (with one exception being the check-sum). Which must be entered online before deadline.

The physical paper work is held by the director/producer until/if you get into the finals. I assume this may be posted in as an out of towner.

Paperwork?

There is/will be (I haven't checked yet for this years') a clearance form that you get everyone to sign. This is essential for all actors, musicians, property owners, although I get absolutely everyone who turns up to sign one.

Then there is an online form to fill in. This should have appeared when you registered and will be accessible over the shoot weekend to adapt/correct etc and needs to be done before deadline.

Other than that, nothing.

48 Hours to Shoot, Edit, ...Flow

in reply to videoamp1969:

I concur.
You need them all of Saturday, including the night (in case your script requires a night shot), plus till at least midday on Sunday (for pick-ups- which you want to avoid, but if you need to...)

Plan to sleep and eat. I know there are some maniacs out there who don't sleep at all, but your brain won't function without it. Even if its a few hours on each night (I aim for at least 5).

We pick a place that has some flexibility and then we write for that location, no matter what.

in reply to LindenFilm:

We usually shoot then edit.
We have in the past downloaded during the day and have removed the rubbish, but not an edit as such.

Strongly recommend a location scout with ALL the writers before the weekend. You need to know where you're shooting.

What we do:
Brainstorm and write on the Friday night. We usually finish around 1-2am. I know some finish earlier and others are still going around 4-5am.

Saturday: Meet early, film, film film. Try to get footage to the editor to delete the crap and start to put a timeline together.
We normally finish around 5-7pm (depending on the script)

Edit like demons on the Saturday night. Have a rough cut done by the time you sleep.

Sunday: Up early and trim the film, sound and music added. Pick-ups if needed (but these really suck the time and should be avoided)

I try and finish by 4pm, to allow 3 hours of fix it time.

2014? What do we want from the comp?

in reply to LindenFilm:

For this genre they had an option. I forget what it was, but there was an out.

in reply to CraigWB:

Oooh, like a Witi Ihimaera category.

I've heard that Stephen King offers some of his stories very cheap ($1 is the number in my head) to new film makers. I could be wrong on this, but it rings a bell. Imagine the 'Stephen King' genre!

I think adapted Shakespeare would be awesome!

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.
