2013 - Hints & Tips from the Vets

In order to get decent sleep, I think the key is to have clearly delegated roles and trust people to do them.
Writers- Have them, use them, don't feel that everyone needs to be present throughout. Wise to have a technical person present at all stages of the writing. If the writing is going late, send key people to bed.

Let the editor relax through Saturday as much as possible. Their job starts on Saturday afternoon/evening and is a big one. If they have been up late in Friday and up early on Saturday, then their batteries will be low at a crucial time.

in reply to Strange:

Sleep is crucial.
Those that try (and to some succeed) in staying awake for the 48 Hours are not at an advantage over those that sleep.

MOVIE DOUCHE!!! HELP???!!!

in reply to Andrew Todd:

I agree that getting two teams together is the better option, simply putting it out there.

You certainly can use the same actors twice.

I'd advise you to focus your efforts on one and make it stella, rather than two uber-rushed ones.
48 Hours is tough enough, let alone 24 hours...
I'd advise you to either:
Get two teams from your school competing, thereby halving the cost. You could share some cast and crew as needed to make this happen (so long as you film near each other and you don't have to deal with a make-up heavy genre (zombie etc)). Many schools have one for more senior students who are more independent and one with more teacher input to guide more junior students.
OR
Register two teams and then choose the genre that takes your fancy.

What would be interesting is if you had the one script, and two teams filming it at the same time with different cameras, then editing it separately to suit their respective genres, and seeing who ends up with the better film...

in reply to jamwal95:

You'd need to create a second team name, but I cannot see any reason why it wouldn't work.
I do know of a school that entered two teams last year, with the intention of making two films. But then numbers dropped and they only had enough for one (something about Stagechallenge...).
So at the launch they had two registered teams, and picked the genre they liked.
Give it a bash

in reply to jamwal95:

If there is only one team from you school, enter twice and then pick the genre you like the best. Costs you nothing, twice the chances of getting a genre you are comfortable with.

GISBORNE GETS FREE ENTRY

On the free entry matter, I also thought that a fairer method could be to make one genre free. Each city could pull the free genre out at the launch and if you hand in on time, your money is repaid.
Thoughts?

Is there a 2012 dvd from last year?

in reply to treefrog:

Well email Ant and tell him.
He hasn't been seen on the forums for some time.

I am not legally minded, but I suspect that the comp could be sued for not providing a good that it stated it would supply.
