Failure rate?

Well we turned in late this year (by 1.5mins... -.-) and we've never turned in late before even when we were editing on windows xp in 2011. It definitely seemed there were less turn ins in Gisborne this year. I'm thinking it's because everyone was a little less prepared this year because of the early shoot weekend?

2014? What do we want from the comp?

Shakespeare would be great considering I'm in a Shakespeare performance a couple of days after the shoot and it'd be useful to get into character. Plus, despite multiple Shakespeare film adaptions already, there's a lot you can do with it.

I think one shot or no dialogue would be fun, at least with no dialogue there's less of a chance of getting bad sound.

Watch my movie - a plea for reviews

Here's ours.

http://www.48hours.co.nz/screening-room/2013/gisborne/obsession/

I wasn't too happy with how the sound came out and how the kidnapping shot came out, but at that point it was getting too dark to re-film it... but I think it's significantly better than last time's.

Constructive criticism would be nice? :)

Congrats, everyone.

It went very smoothly, which was ridiculous cause we hadn't tested our camera equipment/editing equipment previously.. I didn't get to act though, but I had a great time directing and editing.
finished the render at 2pm yesterday so got to go home and have a snooze before hand in, which was nice. Sound's a bit shoddy, but all in all, thank you so much my team, you were fabulous..

(I wonder if my teacher will let me fall asleep in the class that I'm in now... pretty damn tired..)

SCARED AS HECK

in reply to clang:

haha, no it was all good at the end.. The two girls manned up and it turned out quite sweet though we had some audio problems.

SCARED AS HECK

Well.. we have three people who I know are coming tonight. Two may be coming tomorrow and there are two maybes for tonight. My team is scattered.
Plus, last time I did this in 2011 my team had the worst fight and I haven't talked to two of my friends since then.. so, yeah, I'm scared that something like that will happen again.. :(
Plus I have an all girl team with slightly-un-openminded people in it and if we get rom-com again I will cut someone.

(sorry for my out-of-it-ness...)

PUMPED AS HECK

I am nervous as all hell because last time didn't go the best.. but quite excited too! We're pretty damn un-prepared which is a problem that I'll sort out tonight... eh.

Already exhausted, which is great going into a weekend with practically no sleep if things pan out like they did last time...

2013 - Hints & Tips from the Vets

I'm not a veteran at this, but what I learnt from 2011 (when I did it last was),
The V that they give you makes you unpredictable. Ration it or don't drink it. We were up really late and drank a lot of V and yeah... there were a lot of fights. A member of our team actually ended up walking out because she couldn't handle the pressure. I hate V so I drank Pepsi the entire time and I was loopy by the end of it. Anything that's incredibly caffeinated is a bad idea, despite what you might think.

Feed your team well. I've learnt this from other shoots and if your team isn't fed, they get grouchy, which cues the disagreements, and believe me, you don't need those. It tends to get cold at night around this time of year, so we're mainly doing soups and hot things that are really filling.

And, make sure you know how to use your equipment. We're a teen team and I didn't exactly think things through last time, so we were left without a camera operator so one of the parents had to step in. In hindsight, it wasn't the best decision I have ever made...

Good luck to all of you. :)

2013 Roll call

Deviant Drama is back for Gisborne this year.. 2011 was disasterous because our sound equipment hadn't been properly tested, but this year... hopefully it'll be good. :D
