Let's get NOSTALGIC. What are your favourite memories from 48Hours over the years?

I remember the year Sex education was one of the genres. A team of Chinese students by the name of Team Battle Soup think it was, made one of the funniest films ever in the comp.

Do you live in a different city than the one you compete in?

in reply to AJ:

We are an Auckland based team, but our head writer lives in Perth we write together via Skype. I have thought of going to my home region Taranaki but the cost of taking the team there would out weigh the fun.

So Ant wants teams to take more risks this year. What do you think that looks like?

in reply to AJ:

You have to love Ant for his offer, but dam it's vague. "Take more risks" This could mean any number of things from getting your lead to run down K'rd Naked as the day they were born to rigging your camera to a stock car to editing techniques that make your stomach turn. If any team tries to win this award specifically make sure you post your film link here after the comp I'm sure most of us would love to see it.

I'm so down with this Idea 'BIG THUMBS UP' this would even it out a lot and like you said counting the votes would be much easier and time saving.

I think Best use of Miniatures could be a good category.

in reply to Brendon:

I here you there Brendon! Another one is people bringing way more people then they are designated to the heats to vote there film in for Audience choice. So any times have I seen undeserving films win and great films missing out.

Cast and Crew Size

I'm not to sure on our teams final number as of yet for this year. We are currently at 8 crew members and counting. We may have up to 20 cast and crew members by the shoot weekend. But in saying that I have worked with crews ranging from 3-22 people over the years.

As most of us here on the forum know from our years of experience Story and Audio are king in 48hours and I'm glad to say I have a talented designated writing team for this year. (Thank god as this does my head in every year.)

As for audio I own my own basic audio kit but this is unhelpful if the operator is mud. Lol Even the professional world of film have trouble filling the roll of audio recordist at the best of time.

As for people wanting to pike out and leave early I've only found this to be the actors in my case which is alway frustrating, as trying to get them to come back on the Sunday to do pick ups can be a nightmare.

I think the short days this shoot weekend is going to catch out a lot of teams with real daylight hours being around 9am-4.30pm at that time of the year.

Setting yourself a challenge for this year

in reply to Ant Timpson:

Sounds good Ant. I'm hoping for a new form of element to be added to the mix this year it's been a little while since the technical element was added in.

in reply to dramamike:

It used to be against the rules to have two teams but I'm not sure if that is still the case.
