the trifecta of bullshit

ok people it's obvious no one has had the guts to start this thread so here goes. this thread is set up to defend your film by disagreeing with the judges and the reviewers and also telling your peers what you really thought of their film without upsetting the real review page. insults will be tolerated but be prepared to get back what you give.
let the slanging match begin. ( hey shifty watch this page die )

Anyway I'll try and say G'day - you'll know which film is ours its got the all time worst/laziest team intro in 48hours history.

Otherwise if anyone wants to check it out its shortmatch - team salt the earth, heat 15.

I'll be on here tomorrow morning complaining about my 1 star reviews I'm sure.

If you really want to succeed in the film industry Nimlin, you really have to be careful about what you say, and to who. You won't get far with your attitude. Just saying Nimlin... you never know who your really talking to ;)

if you're a crew / support cast going after the paychecks business as usual.. it pays off better to be blindly silently sitting in the corner.. go with the flow.. like the education system teaches... get a job, get a life etc..

if you run your own circus thing.. and want to change the world however... cult leader somewhat.. and if you're smart with what & how you say it... very few make the line though... to express their opinions.... usually after big experiments and failures..

sometimes bedding the expectations can help.. it's much easier to notice somebody who is coming from down there.. than who has been up there long time...

PR strategy I guess..

and then the divas concept..

and again there are exceptions...

nimlin, your attitude on this forum is the worst of any of the forum dwellers.
Your tantrum in this thread was ridiculously immature.

It has pissed me off and it's completely shameful,
but the forums are self-policing so you haven't faced any repercussions
other than alienating your fellow film-makers.

Veli, You're quite right.

Though you saying "it's much easier to notice somebody who is coming from down there.. than who has been up there long time." I suppose I tend to rely on information about the industry, from people they are actually in the industry, rather than people that think they are within the industry, if you get my meaning.

We have all had our ups and downs when it comes to film, especially if we are passionate about what we do, and its obvious we all are, or we wouldn't be here talking about it.

It doesn't make it easier for those trying to follow their dreams, when they are confronted by remarks that are just plan mean. Constructive critiscism should always be used for people that participate in the 48hr film festival, and Steelpotatoe is incredible at that. We should all learn from him when it comes to reviews, he's been doing it for years, and he makes realistic judgements.

I joined today because I was frustrated by the remarks of people, not just in wellington, but all over the country in 48hr. This forum was made to let off stream... and I have. Thank you Nimlin.
