Stink year for reviews.

Once the Wellington films go to the Screening Room, I promise I'll do some.

Yeah, it's not happening. Tried using a couple of different browsers. Same ring of death! Usually there isn't assigned seating anyway for the final, is there?

I've no patience for people that set up multiple accounts to try game the system by downvoting other films, so I'm blocking him from the system. Why would you bother anyway - the ratings don't mean anything!

Amen. Cheers, Nick.

in reply to Captain Woodrow .F Call:

I agree too. Often, once all the films are uploaded to the screening room another influx of reviews occurs. Much easier to do from there!

Christchurch Finalist Predictions?

in reply to Brendon:

Since the official announcement isn't for another 20 days, I reckon you can probably take your time

I certainly hope it's before then! I thought I read that one of the regions is announced today. Only Wellington has heats still to play, so it should be all go before May!

Christchurch Finalist Predictions?

OK, so as usual I was lucky enough to get along to all nine CHCH heats. Thanks to Andrew and the team for accommodating me; it was a close run thing though in a couple of packed heats! I thought the films looked the best they’ve ever looked, so the new Readings gear must be worth it!

My predictions are usually pretty safe bets based on my knowledge of the competition, what the audience made of it and a general gut feel, – but you never know just how the judges swing.

100% Finalists & Likely Winner:
The Ex | TBALC | Rom Com (Heat 9)
Steak & Cheese Lies | Strang Entertainment | Mystery (Heat 9)
Le Restaurant D’erreurs | The Eh Team | Mistaken Identity (Heat 3)

Most Likely a Finalist/Be surprised if they missed out
Something New | Les Cousins Dangereux | The Rom Com (Heat 5)
Love in Reverse: The Musical | The Gentlemen's Agreement | Musical/Dance (Heat 3)
Mimicker | Chromatic Aberration | Horror/Splatter (Heat 7)
Another Day, Another Dance | No Budget Ninjas | Musical/Dance (Heat 5)

Likely to fill the remaining spots
A Prank too Far | Black Banner Media | Revenge (Heat 2)
Slumber | Vatican Daycare | Musical/Dance (Heat 4)
Outgrowing Me | Drakonian | Shock ending (Heat 2)
Tight Package | Domino | Race against the clock (Heat 3)
Bearly: A Revenge Movie | Dragon V Mouse | Revenge (Heat 3)

Love to see it there
The Practitioner | Speakerdip Studios | Shock ending (Heat 9)
Second Skin | Sneaky Horses | Fantasy/Adventure (Heat 9)

Rock on!

Any thoughts on why people haven't been reviewing? Is it the April effect, lack of memory, or general lethargy? Or do people just not know about reviewing this year?

Andrew has mentioned it a couple of times at each heat, so it's just whether people can be bothered I suppose. Until today there have been less bogus reviews than previous years - these can really push numbers up. And of course with Steelpotato not reviewing this year, that's a couple of hundred you won't see.

Normally, in CHCH there's a bit more room in the theatre for those interested to pop into a heat they're not part of, make some notes and review. This year seats have been at a premium for some of the heats, so not the same opportunity. Having a full theatre is great though!

in reply to Meatloaf:

Don't want to get into the whole Chch take on the world given the absolute crap you've all been through, but perhaps being entertained by happy things has some appeal after all.

Have no fear; there was plenty of dark and disturbing stuff this year coming out of CHCH! In fact, one of them was a musical that won Heat 4.

in reply to Meatloaf:

I've heard (and even seen) some film types that have little note books of ideas and thoughts and frameworks that they can refer to during the brainstorm session in order to slightly twist an existing semi-developed short film concept into something that would fit the requirement at hand

Scandalous!

Writing team

Yeah, way less - we usually only have one writing and then others make suggestions/contributions based on what they read. We've never had any major ego issues in our team, so the original writer has never been offended.

We've had large and small groups for brainstorming - we've wasted plenty of time with the former.

But as Ictus says - find what works best for your team.
