2014? What do we want from the comp?

The time has come ladies and gents, to put on our thinking caps and dream about what we want from the comp.

I'm keen for some classic genres- heist, western, revenge, slapstick, and film noir

I'd also like it to be stormy, none of this good weather rubbish. I want wind and rain.
OR
I'd like it in early April and the weather to be stunning.

Ideas people?

One room ended up producing some good results and I'm still a bit tickled by the idea of a dogme 95 film.

I thought one shot came up with good films also.
On the surface they seem uber hard, but once embraced they can fly

I'd like it in April too, maybe mid to late. Genres-wise, I'd be up for some more traditional ones. One idea that struck me was having an X-punk genre where the X is either Steam, Diesel, Cyber or Bio, derived from some arcane calculation from the team name.

Oh, and some carpet on those steps at AUT would be awesome, or some non-slip matting. Just about wrecked myself on those at the start. I let somebody else run in at the end - lesson learnt.

Cyber/Diesel/Biopunk would be great, Steampunk would be just painful to watch.

I'd like to see more curveball genres that add some real constraints like one room or one shot did. Perhaps the ensemble cast movie? That'd be a challenge to make coherent within the time-frame.

Maybe it not being rigged and just being a way for these people to make easy money from stupid hopefuls.

Loving it!

I feel a bit caught unawares, I was only just planning to shoot my latest "short film" at the end of February and now I'll be thinking about getting a team and a home base for 48 hours 2014 as well.

That is fairly soon. Clocks go back an hour April 6th. So perhaps 8pm start, 7pm finish?

...and no Champions League final clash this year.

Haha, you're right. What were the organizers thinking? 8pm start, 7pm finish sounds fair enough, though

Yeesh, only two months away. Still, yay for a date that's before the days get too short and (hopefully) the weather gets too wintry.

Would prefer this to 7pm start, 6pm finish.
Would also avoid those idiots turning up at 6:45pm and therefore missing the deadline.

Trust me, we'd rather have a positive discussion environment than your money.

I'm disappointed you're so ragey here (and on FB). You seemed like a reasonable guy when I met you last year.

The answer to the Daylight Savings Question will come when registrations open, probably later this month.

Your comment is un-necessary, profane and ridiculous.

And you're quite mistaken, its you that hates you, not the internet.

Can we have a consensus on what we did like?

I loved one take, immobilised and M Night Shamalan Big Twist.

The special elements we also well received.

Big twist film was great, I mean it resulted in me agonising for hours about my "big twist" but it was a good genre.
