Auckland Finalist Predictions!

Here's mine. Obviously I didn't attend every heat, but I did get to a couple. So here's 4 films I think that are city finalist worthy.

1. Chillybox
2. Bald Faced Cheek
3. Brothers in Crime
4. Costa Rica

What's your picks?

Grand Cheval were DQ'd i think. which is sad

Grand Cheval are not DQ'd.

The reviews site relies on data from city managers to note who is DQ'd, which is sadly incomplete. Always thinking of ways to improve this for next year.

The hype has died down for sure since the actual shoot weekend.

I'm hoping the announcement of all city finalists is going to be on Monday, But who knows...

Anyway, let's keep talking potential finalists. Has anyone seen other big teams films? Like Hybrid Motion Pictures etc? Just need a few more to complete the list! Let's keep that 48 hype alive!

With the Auckland finals less than a week away, the turn around between announcing the finalists and the finals is crazy tight.

I just messaged the 48Hours Facebook page and they've said city finalists will be announced on Monday

Finalists will be announced on Monday due to the compressed timeframe between the shoot weekend and the Finals judging is still taking place.

Nice work.
Hopefully it will mean this Monday, as in the day after tomorrow (that would make a great title for an average film).

Based on the slow announcement of the music sponsor, they might mean the finalists are announced after the Auckland finals have been held.
