No Chch Best Team Intro this year?

I noticed that there was no nominations for best team intro this year for Christchurch. The last couple years the best team intro nominees were posted after the first announcement but I was curious if thats the case this year or is it gone? I see Gisbourne still has that category.

Anyways no dramas if it is gone but I know in our team we love to go hard at the team intro each year as a good warm up and as a chance to try a technique we don't know how to do but won't have time to learn over the 48 hours weekend. Having a possible award as payoff for all those hours also makes it that much more fun. How do others feel about team intros? Do you enjoy making them or find them superfluous?

I loved your intro (again) this year - very cool.

We did ours on the weekend. Not ideal, but the best way (for us) of ensuring we could get everyone involved on screen. Last year's intro had been recycled and included people who weren't in the team/excluded people that were.

I think I probably enjoy watching other team intros more than doing our own. They're definitely preferable to the old school way of introducing our film which was to stand up and say something along the lines of 'Hi, I'm Dave, hope you enjoy our film.'

Oh man. I loved your Team intro so much this year too dude! Such a brilliantly clever idea. Much like your actual film too. Michael Bell diving in super slow mo at orange studios was one of the highlights of my night haha :)

Haha! A seven minute black and white slow motion of Michael falling would make an excellent 'foreign arts film' short. Whatever happened to that genre?

Watching him score our film was a highlight of the year for me. That man is a genius (I don't read or speak music so the language of musicians is mystical and surreal).

HAHA Best Genre Ever!

That man is a genius

Yes he is! He was in my last year at Jazz school with me. There is nothing like being 20 years old in the last year of your music degree and thinking you're doing pretty well and having an 18 year old show up and jump straight into your 3rd year with you to suddenly feel rather underachieving :) haha.

Also we need Andrew Todd to jump onto this thread and answer the original question at hand too. Is there no more Best Intro Award for CHCH? Or is one still coming for this year? :)

If there ends up being an award, it'll be a certificate, unless a sponsor is on board for the category. I think that is the determining factor. Same discussion happened last year I recall with the "Best Female Director". No sponsor:no award.

In the end though; there may have been one at the last minute. I forget...

Surely noone is in this game for the awards themselves, we probably spent more gearing up for our short than is on offer as a top prize for regional. I suppose the grand final prizes are not to be sniffed at, but they can't be the motivation.

As you say Mr Marmoset, it's all about the GLORY!

I agree! I agree!

I was just giving possible justification for no award in some areas, that may differ from year to year!

I'm pretty sure the City Manager can give everyone a participation certificate if he so desires...

Andrew has had a "Guilty Pleasure" award before...so it's up the the local boss, I guess.

I heard if you say his name three times in front of a mirror at Midnight, he'll turn up.

Oh so thats what I'm doing wrong. I always stop after saying it twice! Cheers. ;)

Yeah exactly. I'm pretty sure thats what we all hope for. Infact the prizes seem to be getting less each year. Perhaps just less sponsors. Previous years there was been prizes for Script, Score and maybe some others. I also had to have a week chuckle this year realising the prize for 2nd place in Canterbury is less than the entry fee. But thats cool. The glory is what its all about really. haha. For the record though we won Best Team intro two years ago and there was no prize. Just a certificate. But we were plenty stoked so I hope they don't drop the category. Sponsors or no sponsors its totally worth putting in that extra effort when theres something at stake.
