Reviewers' Pyramid Scheme

Even though the uptake hasn't been great, this is an excellent concept. I've managed to get more reviews for my film this year, than I have for all my entries, in all the years the database has been active.

So, I'd like to think that if the pyramid scheme was done earlier next year, maybe we'll see a decent uptake and more reviews!

Nice work The_Llama!

Reviewers' Pyramid Scheme

in reply to Joshua Rollo:

I have watched both films and have reviews ready!

And by "both films" you mean four films.

Rules are you've got to review all of them (unless you've previously done them I suppose). Just saying! And do any others that crop up on this post! From now, until eternity!

GRAND FINAL WINNERS 2014

in reply to Andrew Todd:

Me too - I mean, we didn't even nominate you for it in the regionals (no offense!).That you weren't up for Use of Line was somewhat perplexing also

Wow. I've always thought that the regional winners for these categories became the national nominees. I must not have been paying attention..

Awesome stuff, Nick - additions are great.

The PDF system sounds an interesting work on.

This year I kept my own review template pretty simple - just had some A4 sheets for each film with Plot, Plus, Minus and Interesting sections on them.

GRAND FINALISTS and NOMINEES 2014

GF quality was amazingly high. I loved "Dead End Job" and can't stop watching it. That murderous Road Cone is the best animated villain I've seen since Feathers McGraw. I was shocked that it didn't place!

Likewise with "Flicker" - truly unsettling!

Curious - How to get yourself banned from the 48HOURS Competition?

in reply to Kawiti Naitoro:

Just curious - you didn't really break into that house did you? Or pinch that mannequin or really kidnap Leahmarie? :)

I showed your film to my Year 13s and some of them knew her from when she was a student at my school...

Curious - How to get yourself banned from the 48HOURS Competition?

I suggest if it have you had been caught blatantly cheating that may ostracize you in the competition, and raise some questions about future entries, but not sure if you'd be banned.

Hopefully any team that produced films that had seriously questionable content would be cut off at the pass and disqualified. Even if you kept doing it, your films wouldn't play so you'd just be wasting money.

I think typically anyone who has heckled the competition hasn't actually entered before so they have zero credibility.

Don't know if anyone has been banned from the competition but sabotage would be interesting. As Andrew said: would land you in jail first.

assaulting competition staff/equipment etc)

Everyone would be too scared to do that after your car-park threat in Heat 9!

Getting rom-com in 48 hours

I think TBALC are probably the Kings of Rom-com in this comp, especially in CHCH. Was Nicky+Eve a One-Room Rom-com or crime?

Idiotvision have produced two successful ones:
http://www.48hours.co.nz/screening-room/2010/auckland/confessions-of-a-fabricator/
and
http://www.48hours.co.nz/screening-room/2011/auckland/headshot/

I think for many teams they're hard because the genre can be perceived as a bit lightweight; overly prescriptive and importantly they often require a real commitment from actors to be personal/intimate. If you don't have the team members prepared to do this then it can be a roadblock from the start.

City Finalist films in the screening room

Woop woop! That's the sound of all but one non-Grand Christchurch finalist being on the screening room already.

I'll give Black Banner the hurry up! It'd be great to get ALL of the CHCH entries in the screening room for once. What's the normal hit rate, a little better than 50%?

CHRISTCHURCH WINNERS 2014

in reply to TheNimbleMarmoset:

Still a bit shocked over here in TBALC corner, very humbling.

Well done! I was pleased my bridesmaid prediction didn't come true! (Nailed the top two but wrong order!)

I thought "The Ex" came across as a real classy film. Great script, superbly acted, excellent comic timing and of course it looked pretty damn good too.

And, I was so shocked to get a thank you in your team's winning speech - I'm so not worthy! I did love how my forum username was given a Mexican flavour - Mista Teeazz. I wish I could change it to that.

Overall, It was a fun night with a really good feel to it. Andrew does such a great job. Give that man a raise!

Always interesting seeing the finalist films in one hit. I stand by my earlier pumping of Steak 'n' Cheese Lies from Strang. From where I was sitting it seemed to receive the most positive audience reaction of any film on the night - but didn't get any love from judges. Fingers crossed for a wildcard.

Good luck to everyone for the 10am announcement.
