loved BBS! was good to see a film made by a less experienced team in the finals. although it wasn't as polished, it was definitely one of the most entertaining films of the night

overall, the standard was the highest i've ever seen. must have been real hard to judge but i think the top 4 all deserved their respective places

it's a shame that the canon camera up for grabs will be going to the winner of the best cinematography award when all the nominees looked like they had been shot by people who already own 5Ds or other high end cameras. would probably be better going to a student or novice team

stoked for will wallace as best actor

can't wait to see what the rest of the country has done

Was a good night. I especially liked the free sweets from Unitec :)

The films were all great, and it was good to see a few make the finals even lacking some polish or with little mistakes - proves that the overall film is more important than everything being perfect.

What happened to best original soundtrack award? I think this is crucial! And while I'm at it, what happened to all the free stuff teams got as in years gone by? Free food vouchers? Gone are the good days it seems. Seems a bit rich doesn't it. Entry fee goes up every year. Entries increase each year. Yet all we get is a tray of poison. That is all. Time to do some work.

in reply to SidCharmer:

SidCharmer, free stuff always relied on sponsors generosity, not registration fees. Given the last few years economic climate decreases in swag can be put down to sponsorship becoming harder to come by more than some sort of tigt fistedness/lack of work on the organizers behalf.

Also best original song and score was awarded on the night, can't remember the winners though, so this is just a paperwork oversight I think.

Song & Score up there now

Craig is correct. There's not many sponsors who can stump up product for 10,000 participants. A $20 increase in registration fees over 8 yrs doesn't seem to
bad to me.

Wow, what a great night, 99% of those films were amazing, there were two films there that I tought wtf? but anywho ... I definitly thought Sinstral were robbed of something .. anything .. I mean their film was amazing!! you have to watch that, LenseFlare's was good, personally I didn't think the script was great and the award was given more so because of what they pulled off with the one-shot genre although it was clearly edited?? but the cinematography was very very good. ADHDMi, I don't know about this one, I mean it looked fantastic but to me the whole technique seemed to bore me after a while and the one-liner at the very end of the film was a tad pretentious ... BSS great from a new team, Will Wallace this guy is a legend! thedownlowconcept, now I'm guilty of attacking these because I was expecting to see the usual downlow flavour but this year they came with something different and I give it to them I really enjoyed their film, script was engaging throughout Josh is hilarious and doesn't have to try he just is, all three actors had great timing and chemistry camera work including the heli-shot were flawless and great that the heli-shot wasn't used just for the sake of it they were the right shots to tell the story - script paramount. the Wiz-nap film a definite highlight for me, they were both great actors and the simple leaf-throw was hilarious. Goodfellas, having spoken to these guys last night I was shocked to hear they only started shooting late Sunday arvo? and finishd shooting after 4pm wtf, touching on what Dylan said this film was obviously missing some technical touches but their story to me was still clear and typical Goodfellas quality. Love in decay, I have to be honest the animations to me have always felt like 'this one's for you guys over in that corner' BUT I actually enjoyed this film and found myself slightly tantalised by the female lead ...

Sinstral ... I am gutted for you guys and hoping you guys get the Wildcard you guys deserve it.
Brutal "out".

Wow, so happy for the cinematography award!! There were some very nicely shot films last night and i'm quite surprised that the downlow concept wasn't a nominee for the award because their film looked fantastic!

Congrats to everyone else, some really great films. And thanks to Ant and the v48hours team again!

All that massive spiel and barely an offhand mention for Del Sur.

Apart from the fact that they had an amazing film overall, if there was a Best use of Genre prize, I'm sure they'd have won it hands down, it was amazing.

Grats to everyone on the night though, sweet job.

I'd love it if anyone had a suggestion on how Lens Flare did their cuts? We hypothesised that they had a massive floodlight out the window and did the time changes in camera...but it was epic. I can't wait until it's in the screening room so I can watch it again, bravo!

V are pretty important sponsors of this. I think you're being rather mean-spirited. If you're entering for the "freebees" then you're doing it for the wrong reasons.

Personally, for what I get out of entering the fee is cheap.

first finals in a long time where i thought each and every film deserved to be there.

the fact lense flair didn't win best cinematography for that exquisitely blocked one-shot masterpiece blows my mind. can't wait to see grand chaval's entry if it's better that that - it must be something pretty special!

unfortunately thought the lene flair script was pretty weak this year (that's after thinking they got robbed last year). 150% respect to the execution but as a rounded short on the whole thought it was not all that.

del sur's was phenomenal and what a fucking performance from the lead!! and the adhdmi cinemagraph short was something special too.

personally tho, i honestly thought thedownlowconept's movie was one of the best short films i've ever seen, inside or outside of the competition.

my picks would have been

1. thedownlowconcept
2. del sur
3. adhdmi

and lense flair for best cinematography

it's such a subjective thing tho and the overall standard of the night was pretty epic inspiration.

also special mention to big black snake and the one with the bad wizard (sorry can't remember it's name) i had a massive grin ear to ear through both of those too :D

I think I saw one cut in Lense Flare, but no more. That one was at the end of the slomo section. Where did you see more? All I saw was amazingly clever gaffing.

yeah pretty sure the only cut in lense flare's was the camera flash out of the slomo and that the rest of the transitions were done panning a light in and out of the window.

Im sorry i didn't realise I had to say more about that film in my "spiel" as you put it, but to be brutallyhonest the performance from Will is the only thing that stood out for me, given that his performance encapsulated the story and the shooting completely did the right thing for HIS journey what more do you want me to say? that is all
Like Seacrest - brutal "out".

Amazed by the quality this year, with two exceptions, one redeemed by superb script and acting; the other clearly a cultural thing (ie it relied on the viewer actually finding it funny)

De La Sur: Amazing Job and beautifully executed.
Lense Flare: Cleverly done, masterful lighting control and, dear GODS, how long did that take to block out?
ADHDMi: My WTF did I just see for the evening. Superb art direction and post work.
Downlow Concept: Depature from the normal and very well handled. Wat was the aerial platform you used? Quadrotor or RC helicopter I'd guess.
Mukpuddy: As ever, loved it.

And, in general, superb work everyone. I love this event!
