Review Site

Massive kudos to reviewers that go to every heat and review every film, I can't overstate how useful it is to get feedback from someone who isn't a close friend/family/a part of the team. Thank you for your hard work!

How did you find your Genre's and the elements for 2018

I finally had a read-through of the full genre list and think they're great. There's so many that look like it would be fun to do and after reading the full genre list I'm even more amped to go see what everyone else has come up with!

ULTRA again was a mixed bag — sometimes it felt limiting but at the same time that may have been a blessing in disguise? I like the idea of ULTRA as a make-or-break challenge, much like musical as a genre. So, either you'll fail horribly, OR make the best film you've ever made.

Changing up the required elements was a nice touch though I do love seeing how each team uses their line of dialogue every year. There were a lot of panic moments throughout the weekend also when I was convinced we had missed an element.

Heat Observations/Trends/Drinking game?

At first we thought the character "a female" was a bit of a cop out (i.e. too easy), but after seeing a few heats it looks like there are waaaay more all-male teams than I thought!

The lack of team intros was really sad :( I love seeing the teams behind the films, it makes it that much more personable and fun.

Also. Lots of deaths. Murders out of nowhere!

Ultra teams: What did you think?

ULTRA definitely made it harder, but we ended up having a blast anyway. The most difficult part was of course, casting. Our team started in Dunedin and, while most of us have moved to Welly, some of our key team mates are still down south. Still, I think we managed pretty well!

Definitely keep ULTRA for the upcoming years. It's like a completely open dice roll that has the potential to thwart any usual production patterns that many teams have slumped into the past few years. Keeps us on our toes and the comp fresh!

Match Cut!

This is most definitely my favourite tech element so far (and perhaps ever), and it broke my heart that the rockumentary genre limited how stylistic we could be with this shot :'( Oh well, perhaps we'll sneak in a match cut next year!

REVIEWS DATABASE 2015 is live - please review the films in your heat!

in reply to DogsBreakfast:

I've just put a very simple synopsis of our film in there, hopefully others do the same, cause when writing multiple reviews you run out of time to write it all down or have trouble remembering which story was which.

That's a great idea, will do the same too. How did you log in as your team? I can only find login fields for normal users.

PS, Nick, amazing work as always. Thanks so much for doing this! Am planning to go to multiple heats this year to get my review on!

Post Your Films in The Screening Room. And also in here.

Wow. Production value has gone up tenfold this year.

Here's our two cents: We drew Body Switch and decided to make a mockumentary about a company that sells them.

Enjoy :D

Awkward. Apparently our producer received the DVD last year and just never told me.
