If you could have picked your own genre.

Was there a genre that left you howling 'why didn't we get that one!'

Since we had musicians on the team this year we were kind of hoping for a musical, but I would have loved 'Other Dimension'

I really liked the openness of other dimension and would have loved it too.
Mistaken Identity sounded fun too.
And I'm really not sure how it would have gone, but 'Black Comedy' would have been a fun challenge.

We got mystery, which was okay, but...

We got Black Comedy, which I was stoked with (check out the results at the Hamilton Finals on the 8th! Whoop!).

BUT!

I would have loved to get Other Dimension or Science Gone Mad, simply because we had access to a Steampunk-themed party on the Saturday, with more than 70 people in full steampunk outfits. It could have made for some pretty spectacular scenes, for a 48hours movie. Still a bit gutted we couldn't work it into the film somehow.

Every year all the males on our team grow out their beards in case we get Twin movie and can play our own twins.

What the heck even is a Twin movie? That year was before my time in 48, but I've always found it so weird.

We got Last Person on Earth, which is actually probably one of my favourite genres the competition has ever done, which is lucky.

I would have loved to tackle Buddy Movie or Black Comedy too.

A movie with twins.

We got it.
It sucked.
We had one twin killed before the film started.

The Parent Trap? ... Game Of Thrones? (The latter is of course part of the popular niche Twincest genre.)

Actually, I suspect that the vast majority of the Twins 'genre' is made up of every film that the Olsen twins have made.

Haha. Brilliant. Taking the Avatar spin on twin movie then?

It was the only way.
Our actors did not look at all alike, nor were they of vaguely similar ages (9, 20, 30, and 40)...

Dead Ringers, with Jeremy Irons, is a pretty famous one. The Parent Trap, as well (not with Jeremy Irons). Central to Bowfinger, too.

Recently there was that film with Bill Hader and Kristin Wiig, the something twins?

At least two last year alone. (THE DOUBLE and ENEMY)
JCVD's DOUBLE IMPACT.
SISTERS.
STUCK ON YOU.
TWIN DRAGONS.
ADAPTATION.
THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK.
THE SOCIAL NETWORK (sorta).
Any Olsen Twins movie.

Clone movies could maybe tangentially fit in there too.

Oh and STAR WARS (though that's really only a technicality).

What would you describe as the conventions and elements of a Twin movie?

Got twins in.

More seriously: stories that revolve more closely around siblinghood than other stories. Or stories about mistaken identity. (I'm surprised more teams didn't make twin movies with the Mistaken Identity genre, tbh - The Eh Team last year was the only team I can remember to really play the doppelganger aspect hard.)

I would have really liked black comedy.
I think it would play to our strengths and the line between black and just horrible is one I think we can work pretty well.

As it was Science gone Mad took us a very long time.
