Let the Grand Final announcement awaiting commence! (er...continue.)

It feels as if key people in the management of this years event have been somewhat distant and distracted ever since the actual 48 hours.

Could just be communication problems, I'm told its the key to most relationship issues.

Or it could be personal... ;-)

in reply to Brendon:

In this politically correct era, I'm sure we could all get an award for 'participating'

Anyone wanting to book flights is going to be getting a bit antsy.

Wellington Finals Botched!

In Auckland's case, audience favourites were not announced or shown, just certificates given out in the scrum at the end. To be fair, there were 21 heats in auckland, that could never work as a prize giving, except maybe at a university graduation ceremony, where everyones hands go numb from polite applause between the snoring.

Wellington Finals Botched!

Go Christchurch, respecting the filmmakers desire for 48 seconds of glory after 48 hours of slog.

Last year it seems they were announced 9th may for a show on 1st on June, so about 3 weeks before. By that standard, I would expect an announcement pretty soon.

Wellington Finals Botched!

In Auckland there were no walk ups for any awards except the majors, the minor award nominees were shown as clips, the winner announced to applause, and they collected their certificates at the end in a big scrum.

But, to be fair, they are only 'minor' awards.

The main nominees were shown in two batches of 6 with the more important 'minor' awards announced in between each batch, and the final main prizes given at the end with walk ups. That way all the main nominees got shown before any major prizes, gave a chance to anticipate the end results.

The organisers were careful not to do any accidental spoilers with minor award announcements as far as I could see, so it seemed like a good night to me, flowed well.

That was my first regional final so I've no idea if thats how it has always been done, it seemed ok to me, and my team was a recipient of an audience award. I didn't mind the scrum ;-)

No city sponsors/prizes?

in reply to Hurley89:

It is a shame that a competition that was so loved and was such a big part of the welly film scene is fading away.

Well, considering there were nearly 300 entrants in Auckland alone this year, I think "fading away" might be a bit strong. Sponsors and prizes aren't really the point as far as I can see, more like icing on the cake.

I do hope the Auckland Finals don't suffer from any of the issues the Wellington Final seems to have had, and I'm sure Andrew will put together a great show in Christchurch.
