Year 4 (and each subsequent year until it happens) is take over the world, one short film at a time.

2013 - Hints & Tips from the Vets

In my first year my one and only aim was to hand something in.
Year 2 was hand in something half decent.
Year 3 was hand in something decent.

2013 - Hints & Tips from the Vets

in reply to dramamike:

opps, meant to say Not easily flustered.
I have been fortunate that my editor was super chilled and efficient. This fact really only struck me last year and that is why its my biggest lesson from last year

2013 - Hints & Tips from the Vets

For newbies: Keep it simple. Story is king. Whizbang effects are not needed to excel. Feed people.
Biggest lesson from last year: Have a good editor. Someone who is easily flustered.

the trifecta of bullshit

I've had a week from hell.
Am in a 48 Hour holding pattern.
Waiting to register and get the ball rolling totally out of control.

In answer to the thread question, I'd answer 'Because'

In other news, registrations have been delayed again... Now it looks like the 25th

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

I've known films to be edited on simple programs like imovie.
I'm not that technically minded, I leave that to my editor..., but if you are a 'douche' I'd advise you to keep your narrative simple (plan to avoid gun flashes etc) because the technical demands of 48 Hours can be a killer.
If you are new or newish to the software, 48 Hours will swiftly extract your sanity, if you try to compete with the highly technically savvy teams.

Story is king.

Whatever software you choose, learn how to drive it like Miss Daisy before you go for Avatar.

school teams

in reply to ZEBMARKLANDFILMS:

Cost hasn't been announced yet.
From memory last year was $185 ish. This has been fairly stable over the past few years.
When the registration opens (which should be tomorrow) I think the cost will be announced.

2012 Receipt??????!!!!!!

in reply to Ms Reel:

Last year is last year.
Each year school teams get two for the price of one. So when you entered one, you got one entry (for that year) free.
Same applies this year I believe.

in reply to Sixfoot10:

That deal has been around for the last few years.
I'd be surprised if it was canned. But I guess its wait and see
