More Finalists?

Here are my thoughts on the regional finals: I'm hoping they can just pace it out a bit more, last year they raced through it way too quickly in Wellington. It would be nice to hear who the winner is, see a clip from their film and have a comment from the judge, as to why they won, while the recipient makes their way to the stage. Prizes for finalists, should also be included, a certificate doesn't really cut it. We all need more Hard Drives, please get a hard drive sponsor onboard, that would be really beneficial. Thanks.

I hope they will be live streaming the Grand Final, it is really simple to do it these days.

Editing Awards Question

in reply to Newsboy:

Accidentally breaking the rule because you don't know it exists is usually jarring

This seemed to be the case here - it was jarring to me as a viewer.

It is probably more a fault of a director or camera operator, than that of the editor - if that was all they were given to work with, then that's all they can work with, unless they flip the shot in post.

Editing Awards Question

A question for editors out there:

Does "crossing the line" in a dialogue situation still matter? I noticed that one of the Grand Final Editing Award nominees broke that rule in one scene. Do you think the judges consider fundamentals like this?

I thought this was a competition where deadlines were important?

Wellington Finals Botched!

Can Chch be the template for future events? There were no Audience Favourite awards in Wellington but someone said Auckland had them.

Wellington Finals Botched!

in reply to semix:

I agree with semix, the minor awards were so rushed and it was insulting to the recipients.

When are the finalists announced? All the teams outside of Auckland would prefer as much notice as possible so they can buy airline tickets, before they become unaffordable or unavailable.

No city sponsors/prizes?

Yes, the Wellington finals weren't well attended, unlike previous years. I also noted the lack of prizes and unfortunately all of our team had bought tickets before we realised that there were some comps. We had a good night though and saw some amazing films. I think they should have probably shown all of the films first, then the awarding of the minor prizes, so the viewers could appreciate the results.

Disqualification question

What about films where they got the name of the compulsory character wrong? There were 2 in our heat that had Harper's surname wrong.
