Ultra48 - new challenge for veterans

Hi all, we've just launched a new challenge for veterans - Ultra48. You can read all about it on the website https://www.48hours.co.nz/2017/register/?ss=ultra48
And here's the blurb:

Ultra48

(Think the comp is a bit easy? Think again)

ULTRA48 is now open to veterans of the competition with at least five years experience who think they have what it takes to go some extra miles for HP48.

HOW IT WORKS

Teams who enter ULTRA48 will be given some other, especially difficult requirements at the launch, which will make things extra hard. They will still need to follow all the standard rules, just incorporate the other elements.

Teams will be competing for a single national award of ULTRA48 CHAMPION 2017. The winner will be announced at the Grand National Final and will be awarded the inaugural ULTRA48 CUP which will be filled with champagne (or V).

Teams will still be eligible for all other awards and will be judged alongside other entrants, except we will be also be judging how these harder elements are integrated into the story. ULTRA48teams MUST include the ULTRA48 elements as well as the regular elements in their films to be eligible to be a finalist or award nomination.

HOW TO ENTER

Teams will need to sign up before the shoot weekend in - this isn’t something you can opt into over the weekend, you need to put your money where your mouth is before you start.

You can signup by emailing us with your team name, region and a list of your five previous entries so we can verify that you are ready to go Ultra48.

EMAIL TO GO ULTRA - ruth@48hours.co.nz

We will confirm via email that you are indeed eligible, by the 23rd of August.

Oh dear,

yeah, I love ULTRA, it's super exciting*

I hope Andrew gets the ultra teams up on stage at the launch and we all get to admire them for their extra big Cojones

We probably wont be ultra this year, πŸ˜• I kinda Ultra'd us a few months back with a some specific extra things we are doing this year, and I'm worried if we add the extra ultra we might end up in a really compromised position.

mostly because it's anyones guess what form Ultra will take. like if it was just extra details/elements to integrate into the film I wouldn't be worried. but if it's something that's going to shape the whole style and concept of the film then we would be buggered.

So for us this year, not likely to happen, although the team is meeting this weekend and it will be discussed. (and I can guarantee we will do it next year)

Fear not though, team Strang wont be taking it easy or anything.

in reply to AJ:

I've been trying to convince Rowan to do it as well since he's like the most progressive 48er I know ahaha. Plus after essentially being responsible for ground zero for the contraversial rule change, I think he probably owes it to everyone now to at least participate in ultra ;) ;)

This could be the equivalent of slowly backing into the hedge while whistling innocently.

Fair enough taking things ... not Ultra (I can't say taking things easy because nothing in 48 is easy). But to play the devil's advocate for a second - I usually find having an additional restriction to heighten our creativity/focus our minds. But don't kill the team.

Bloydd - awesome!! Dragon v Mouse will make an excellent Guinea Pig :P

This has definitely got the forums buzzing a bit more.

Those are some fantastic, quality teams!

(Come on, Rowan. C'mon...)

This has got me excited about the comp again. More so than other recent years. (I'm not going to pretend I'm not always excited about the comp).

By rights we should totally do this...

But I've been very slack on organising things and as a result we are currently still without a DOP, editor, soundy, and probably more. Do I want to make it even harder?

Decisions, decisions...
