I'm already so excited I feel like throwing up.

How is everyone faring? What are your hopes, your dreams, your nightmares for this year?

My fear is that I will have a commercial-quality 4K camera and no-one to operate it!

I think I just want to make a short that people like enough that they will encourage others to see it as well.
It's a bit disappointing to create something mediocre that no one seems to care about, I remember one year when some of the crew were upset that I had given them story credit to this day I wonder if they understood what a statement that was about the quality of the film itself.
Mostly I try not to worry about the 48 hours films anymore because the nature of the competition means a film will be made and delivered one way or another.
These days what really stresses me out is trying to make stuff outside of the 48.

My goals are always very similar:
1. Hand something in.
2. Hand something half decent in.
3. Take over the world through the medium of short film.

I know I've achieved number 1.
I believe I've achieved number 2 a few times.
I'm still waiting on number 3.

Apart from the usual wanting to finish on time and have heaps of fun I want to find the best ways to exploit the talents of my team. In previous years I've just loved seeing people having a chance to do great work that only they could do. Also, I always want to get something surprising in to the film.
My nightmare is cocking something up that means we don't get the film done in time and letting everyone down.

My advice is to go overseas if you are serious about film making. You will die of a slow death trying to do anything here. Thats only if you are serious of course.

I see some of you have been entering films here since 2003...jesus wept.

This is pretty much the only time of the year that I get to make a film (although I have done a couple of corporate videos, funnily because they saw my 48 hour films). I just do it for fun and I love getting to see the other films, sadly I won't see many this year and may not even get to my own screening as I'm travelling straight after the comp for work.
