2012 GRAND FINALISTS & WILDCARDS

in reply to Rocket Boy:

'some bigger picture ideas come into play when it comes to finalist selection - which I think is fine and I'm not criticising at all.'What do you mean by that?

Certainly nothing to do with Amateur vs Professional as it will be a sorry day when any split in the competition occurs. Really, what's the point?

All I was suggesting was that Grand finalist selection must be damn difficult. Maybe, they view 30 films for 10 spots. Perhaps twenty of those are of equal quality so how do you decide who misses out? A straight "judges score" system - maybe but again it's likely it would all be very close. I'd imagine discussion would be had and points of difference in films would gain weight. Was it a regional winner? Did it have some exceptional acting? An original take? Was it animated etc, etc. Then with that weighed up are they left with a decent variety (genre, style etc) of films in the Grand Final list?

People on here often wonder why certain films miss out (and protest loudly!) so I'm offering one possible reason why! It was too similar to something else. I mean, otherwise we probably could have had near enough to a whole grand final full of one-shots this year.

Once more, not complaining or stirring or suggesting any conspiracy. This just seems like common sense to me. The Grand Final is also a showcase for 48HOURS so some thought has to go into the "package". That means some great films will miss out. However, 13 great films will also make it.

Nope. But then I didn't "quite" make the ten anyway! Oh well...

2012 GRAND FINALISTS & WILDCARDS

in reply to Cardinal:

it could come across as "we didn't get in the finals, waaah!", which is not my intention

Absolutely. And trust me when I say it's not coming across like that. I think it's a good discussion and does relate back to one of your earlier threads about the murkiness of the process.

It is a tricky one. In my opinion maybe 11 or 12 of the Auckland films could have made a strong case as a Grand Finalist and then there were another 2 or 3 behind that who missed on the Auckland final, who dare I say it would have been CHCH finalists had they entered down here.

So, what conclusions can be drawn? I dunno, apart from the feeling I get that as well as quality, some bigger picture ideas come into play when it comes to finalist selection - which I think is fine and I'm not criticising at all.

You're right too ALWAYS going to be subjective. I personally ranked and liked three or four films above Brains? as winner but there you go.

I did think that TBALC were pretty unlucky not to pick up Best Script though! That was some good story-telling.

Be good to hear some views from other regions. Not a lot in the way of comment about the finalists, winner or anything this year really. Moved on? Apathetic? What's the story?!!

2012 GRAND FINALISTS & WILDCARDS

Christchurch was overlooked/underrepresented at the grand finals

Maybe, but which finalist films would they replace? Also other regions could probably feel the same. Auckland teams may feel there could easily have been more from there! We haven't seen Sinistral's film yet which seemed to be well thought of.

Would winning CHCH have helped your chances? (or the chances of any of those listed above) Or even placing? Would "An Inconvienant Hoof" still made it had not won CHCH? You'd like to think so, but who knows!

It is what it is. With only 10 spots (excluding Peter Jackson's picks) many good films are going to miss out. The National selection system is still way better than it used to be - at least now more quality films will make the GF.

Rialto Channel screens 48HR films from time-to-time which is one avenue for a wider audience.

The wider audience thing is interesting in itself as a lot of people don't get the 48HOUR fuss!! (Their education is seriously lacking!)

2012 GRAND FINALISTS & WILDCARDS

in reply to MalibuBarbie:

I am shocked to see the dismissal of a handful of legitimately brilliant films from the CHCH finals in favour of an Outwits film that had no story, was shoddily filmed, basically had everything riding on the "reverse" gimmick and was quite frankly...boring.

I have to say, I suggested that Outwits could pick up a wildcard when prompted about CHCH finalists!

It might have its limitations, but it is rather clever, is different, and even though I didn't persoanlly enjoy it as much the second time around, I can see why it was chosen.

Congrats & good luck to them I say - they always deliver something that makes you smile!

the trifecta of bullshit

sod the reports they are a waste of time just teach!

Yes, but parents still want them...sigh.

I TOTALLY agree, they to be bland assessments of behaviour and achievement.

I used to do them like this - now I just comment on next steps. About 50 words per report. Surely your reports include achievement grades - so why do you need to comment on them as well?

Also, my school is very, very close to not providing comments at all - it is becoming redundant.

Wait, this is the teachers' thread, right?

We want to see your films!

On a side note I watched your film in the screening room, well done on a brave concept. As one reviewer said it was well thought out.

Cheers for that. As always with our efforts in this comp we wished we done more with it and executed a little better. More backstory was planned but we decided not to film it on the day...my call I think. We had fun which is always our main aim...although we hope that one day our stars will line up.

Also was surprised when I read the credits to see the name of one of your lead actors who I have not seen for over 30 Years! Used to help babysit him, I am getting old!

Was that Mike? 'Cos that would be funny given what a monster he is now.

in reply to videoamp1969:

Unfortunately, roughly only half of the films produce over the weekend are in the screening room.

This is pretty standard for Christchurch and it is a shame as some interesting films don't see the light of day again! You can't force people to upload though and it is their call. However, I personally believe uploading is part of completing your 48HOUR experience.

I hope the "The Clown" from CHCH gets uploaded soon...you've got to see that in full to appreciate its "incrediable strange and badness".
