Same weekend every year?

I know I’m not alone in wanting this.

It seems as if 48hours 2016 is going to be sprung upon us with only a few months warning which for me personally has the potential to rule me out of the weekend. Words can't express how crushed I would be if this happens.

so I'd love to see one of two things happen.
1. A weekend is picked. Like the the first or last weekend in April (just as an example although April in general seems to be a very popular month) And from then to the end of time it could be known as the 48hours weekend. Always the same weekend every year.

or

2. (in some ways this would be even more fun). A tradition could be started. At the end of the grand final the dates for next years weekend could be announced.

thoughts?

I understand the desire, but it is unrealistic.
Easter shifts and must be avoided.
So do school holidays.

Can't wait to be able to contact the team with dates and get them locked and loaded.

What about if they simply announced when the competition was on the same day.
For example, every March 1st the dates for the competition are announced.

I'm certainly hanging out for the 2016 dates.

good evening fellow old schoolers ;)

I too will be back for yet another - I just hope this time around isn't (once more) on the same evening as another gig! Last 2 years I've only had about 5 hours to do the whole thing!

I'm already booked for 4 fight events and a comedy show over April/May

how do you make 48hours even more epic? do a full days shooting on the Friday. Ive done this just once and while we still went alright that year, I cant help but think the short would have been better in every way if i hadn't started the comp already tired from a 12hour day on my feet.

at this stage I'm checking the site and Facebook page every day.

In previous years what is the latest date that the shoot weekend has been? has it ever been in June or July?

I just took a booking for a gig on May 21st and I'm terrified that this will end up being the weekend.

YOU'RE TEARING ME APART 48HOURS!

I've been doing it since 2008 and it has never been later than early May.
At this point, I suspect the 6-8th of May or the 13-15th.
Filming in Dunedin in winter would really suck.
I think the delay is based around the fact that Ant Timpson is away promoting his 'Greasy Strangler' movie and needs to be back before the final details can be sorted.

It has included 22 May before (and yes potentially this year!) as it's a significant female birthday in my household and I still get reminded about it! So, it has got on a bit it in the month before, but never June or July during my time.

It's always fingers crossed that it suits. Be nice to know rather soon though...please.

Likewise.
Nutbar would love to know when a decision is being made.
So frustrating.
I suspect numbers will plummet this year due to the issues around when the competition will occur. But if they cancel the comp this year, then numbers next year will be even worse (in my opinion).

Unfortunately the time to actually have this approve and organized for our school is running out. It seems less and less likely we will be competing this year.

I don't really care when they announce I just don't want a weekend in the dead of the winter so if there's going to be a 48hours this year I hope it's in November.

I understand the desire, but the loss of school teams (which would be decimated by NCEA exams), and university flats that would have broken up, would seriously impact on numbers.
I'd prefer midwinter (no matter what the weather)

Fair enough. Honestly I'll probably end up making another puppet movie or animation anyway so it doesn't really matter how long the days are, but those winter days are damn short and it's tight enough to get your shooting done as it is. Plus the weather. Rainy Auckland mid-winter is tough.

Yeah, and Dunners would be worse weather wise.
I think it would simply force films to be made differently- finding indoor spaces etc that are still engaging.
A boring, plain room can be made to look engaging when filmed well.
