Auckland Heat 14

I don't want to be a Dick, but, we weren't able to vote for Permanently Confused in the audience faves because they weren't on the online form, we even talked to them about it after. Somehow though, they still came 3rd.

This calls into question the people who came in 1st and 2nd, can we get an explanation as to what happened please?

In other news, great heat guys, it was a blast!

Yes, I thought that odd. Also the voting site appeared to be suffering a serious connectivity problem - several people were getting messages from the webserver saying that it was struggling under the request load (I'm paraphrasing)

I was wondering the same thing. I enjoyed this film, but it was not on the online voting list so how did it get a place?

The team Permanently Confused was moved from heat 9. Unfortunately there was a data refresh error and their presence on the voting form reverted to heat 9.

We quickly put them back into heat 14 - a few minutes into the voting - so they were there on the voting form just a little later.

That's a shame, they would have gotten 1st for sure if they had been included from the start.

hey guys - yeah stuff happens.
we're grateful that the organisers were able to change our heat time and day, and also play our film last as we were all travelling back from a shoot that day. We only got into the theatre about 4 short films out from the end of the heats. Its so rewarding to be in the theatre and listening to the audience response. so thank you all!
