See the amount of torture I have to put up with working with Giles?! Jeeeez

You are one HELL of a director Giles, I have never worked with someone as patient, understanding and caring to EVERYONE you work with.
You have the passion, the talent and anyone that has seen your films know you are going to go far, I'm just glad I get to be here, to watch your incredible future unfold.

You're film was awesome. I LOVED the bit where the main actor tasted the... um... substance (Cannibilism!). Laughed so hard at that.... I think your film gave me nightmares. That doll was scary - really surprised you didn't get into the Grand finals. :)

Didn't even enter this year but I'm sad that Dunedin's still not getting any love for the finals.

I haven't seen any of the films this year, but I swear Chatter was better than Child Jumpers... Or what ever the hell it was called.

Congrats to all the finalists! Stoked to see Wiz-nap and Glow up there! Should be a good night, excited to see Brains? after all the great reviews it's been getting!

Thanks Hayley. Personally I think Fetus, Kids and SOOTW were all equal second behind your film, so when we were called up at the Wgtn Finals I was just happy it swung that way. Now it seems it has swung Gin Joints's way for the Grand Final, which is fine with me because Kids These Days is a worthy finalist.

I'm excited to see what Lense Flare, Del Sur, Downlow and Voltron have cooked up (Letter to a Samurai is my all-time favourite DQd film btw), but I really hope Noise and Pictures brings it home to Wgtn this year :)

It was delicious.... it always is.
While I'm a little gutted we didn't make it to the Grand Finals I couldn't be happier with "Kids These Days" nabbing that spot. I honestly believed they were going to get a placement in the city finals, so yeah, good on ya guys!

Either Gin Joints or Noise and Pictures better take first place. Absolute quality there for sure. :D

These forums aren't as busy as they use to be, so thanks for posting:) I find myself looking for anything about V48hrs, and can't wait for the Grand Finals - Driving up to Auckland on Friday. I sincerely hope 'Brains?' and 'Kids these days' do well - Wellington Represent.
I'm curious about the international judging of the films... do they all sit together and watch them? or do they watch them by themselves?
'Brains?' is a great little film, but I don't know if our humor would come across too well. I hope it does... suppose we'll find out in 5 days.

in reply to Hayley Marlow:

With all those judges being from all over the place Hayley, I don't think it's logistically likely that they ever get together in the same place. I think it's more likely they all get sent the films individually and then send their scores / thoughts back in (in fact I think I saw Ant posting somewhere about "scores are starting to come in" somewhere).

For the same reason of logistics / time demands, I would think that they only watch the finalist films, and not every film that is up for a category award (because that's 13 films to watch versus what, about 30 or 40 something?), so presumably those end up decided upon more locally somehow. I stand to be corrected, though!

in reply to Cardinal:

Yeah, I can see the 30 judges watching all 13 films, and then maybe individually watching 5 more films for a particular award category. ie Someone like Elijah Wood could be one of the judges for the acting awards. That way at most a judge might only need to watch 13-20 films. That could work.

in reply to goodfella:

Thank you Goodfella :)

What amazes me actually, is that sometimes, when the winner is announced, there are usually people saying, "didn't like it as much as...." and "I thought ........ should have won!" but there isn't anything like that out there.
Its bugging me out, what a shock!

While I was sitting there waiting for the Grand Champs to be annouced, I honestly thought we wouldn't get it.
It wasn't until everyone around me stood up around me, that I realised we had won.

All the films that played were amazing, thats why I didn't think it could be us. I loved MukPuddy, Team Lense Flare, and The Downlow concept (Cheers guys for the Kareoke! We Wellington folk felt very accepted), and LOVED Del Sur's film as well as Gin Joints! That Wiz-Nap film was really touching.

Its still a shock, and still can't quite believe it. Thank you for liking our film :)

Huge congrats Hayley and rest of the team, it was SO great to see you guys turn up at Kareoke :) which is fast becoming a post 48hr final tradition. Loved your film, heard so much of the hype and excitement about it online and couldn't wait to see it, and it delivered big time! Such a unique spin on the Zombie film and really entertaining. All the best from camp Lense Flare!!!! :)
