Auckland IRL Pre-Finals Friendship Club

Hey guys,

A few people from different teams made the finals in my office, so we thought we'd have a pre-finals get together at the Empire Tavern. It's not fancy, but its big and has beers and is just across the road from SkyCity. Thought I'd extend the invite to everyone heading along so we can make real life non forum friends. I imagine we'll be there from 3ish? 4 at the latest?

Would love to see y'all there, rain or shine, whether the good team or the bad team win the election.

They closed the bar early, big mistake for them as based on the hype from this forum they were about to get swamped. We're now at Glass goose on federal

Off topic but Bookase: The Seaquel was bloody fantastic, mate! Should have been top two IMO. I guess judges are people with opinions too though. LOL. Anyway, nice work Joseph and co! It really was brilliant.

Team Just 2 Guys... only I'm just one guy... one fat guy... so I guess I am two guys?

So much to love last night. So many awesome shorts. Can't get naked 8bit people out of my head or bleeding boobs or fishes being delivered out of my head.

It was such a good line up! The darkest 48Hours final ever? So many bloody grim movies, sometimes hilariously grim, sometimes just grim (I loved it). It'll take a damn good film from somewhere else (or asTim Batt called them - the other cities we string along for a while) to beat Under The Bridge. Would love to see it take out nationals not only cos it's fantastic but also because I want to see Greg Smith do another James-Cameron-King-of-the-World style acceptance speech.

Darn I should check the forums more often. My team met up at a different bar before the city finals haha.

So many great films this year. Watching Feeding the 2nd time around and knowing what was coming made it even more difficult to watch than the first. I can't wait to see what the other cities have for us in the grand finals.
