It's quiet. Too quiet.

Does anyone else get the feeling, just based on how little is happening here in the forums compared to previous years, that a lot of people haven't quite got the message about 48hours being up in just a couple of weeks?

finally confirmed we have an editor, still haven't heard from the director yet... actors, well at least 2 have committed... this could be an interesting year

2 actors! you are spoilt! :p our editor will be AWOL for 5 hours on Saturday evening... I THINK our team may have wheels for the weekend... It could be worse - the concrete people could have decided that this weekend is the perfect time to resurface the driveway... Oh, wait - they have!

I can't wait! Less than 21 hours, 13 mins til launch :D :D :D

I still haven't even fully confirmed the camera I want. It looks like they may not be able to fly the full 65mm IMAX camera over here in time, I may have to make do with just a couple of ARRI Alexas...

In previous years I was all over these here forums in the run up to the 48HOURS
but this year, due to the shift forward, it has pretty much completely snuck up on me,
so this is the first I've been in
with the competition on my doorstep.

I've got a better camera and better glass this year
and a new crop of friends for cast/crew
so I'm hoping to smash it.

The weather forecast is calling for rain
so we'll have to get creative...

2013 - Robocrop - "The Price of Pilsner" Horror
2012 - Robocrop - "Promises" Crime - DQed (Nominated Best DQed Film)
2011 - Robocrop - "Protocol" One Room (Crime) - LATE

Ok so we've got an indication of the number of registrations. According to my quick count of the Auckland heats page there are 255 registered teams.

I don't remember last year's number exactly but think it was closer to 300, so not as bad as I feared based on the forum traffic, and it seems logical that'd it'd be the most disorganised teams anyway (so who cares).

The other cities haven't got their shit together with heat info but it'll be interesting to see how the national trend compares.

Agreed, but ideally not before I get to PB Tech for a couple of USB sticks.

Seems really weird that the forums have heated up more after the shoot weekend than before.

Coming down off the buzz and maybe many people are too tired to take work very seriously today :p
