Classic Bants (whats your best 48hour story?)

Thought i'd make a thread for people to share their most epic/horrible stories and lessons learnt from previous years.

I think smashing a sugar glass vase over our actors head was one of my favourites.

Always say your worst ideas out loud. you never know what will generate the first spark of an idea that turns into something great.

Shoot Weekend confirmed: June 14 - 16

Not to be a downer but i'm curious about peoples thoughts around the use of guns this year? After what happened in chch i figured it might be a good discussion to have before the competition kicks off? Id personally rather there not be an out right ban but Id understand if that was the case. Maybe just a "hey teams just keep it respectful" message Type thing could work??

Ultra clarification

if you had a character that was an adult and wasn't intended to be a main character but when you cut the film they came out quite prominent in the film (main character is definitely a child) would you be disqualified or just marked down? or would they just let it slide of your film is good enough? just wondering how they would judge it????

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

Or producer informed us on Saturday morning that he had told us it was slapstick instead of splatstick.... Luckily we had coincidently gone down the splatstick route. So yea genre wants too hard but the ultra part wasn't easy but ultimately made it a better film.

Hamilton discussions

T'was an awesome night. All the films were great and considerably better than the last hamilton finals i went to (like 5 years ago) I was a bit gutted that a couple of the films that got lots of nominations did not play. i really wanted to see the one that won best collision. overall good effort hamilton and fingers crossed a couple of them make it into the grand finals.

2017 Auckland Finalists Discussion

Greg Page was my tutor a few years back down in Hamilton. Hes a super good stop motion animator and a little bit crazy (in a good way) I can imagine he will pick some pretty mental films.

Whats up with heat 10?

That's a really good point. im not sure where the suggestion box is for this type of thing, but definitely upping the character limit would be great. also a place for team Bio's would be cool.

Well i don't really mind people reviewing their own films as a joke. (this happend with my team last year but has since been removed) but you should really be using that time to review the other teams hard work as well. There's a definite art to writing a good review so i'm super keen to seem them bring back a reviewer award in one form or another.

Yea i just feel for the other teams in the heat. like why go to the trouble of making an account just to review your own film??? just a bit of a bit of a pain.

Whats up with heat 10?

There are some suspicious goings on in the review site with heat 10. Couldn't help but notice that there is one film which has 13 reviews, 10 of which have 7 star ratings and don't say a whole lot. then every other film in the heat only has one review per film....its almost as if its been rigged?? which has also put the well reviewed team in the #1 position in the Auckland heats....so on that note id like to give a shout out to the reviewer aaannarose for reviewing most of the films in heat ten and giving genuine feedback. getting good constructive feed back is an essential part of helping teams grow from year to year and overall helps make the competition a great thing to be part of!
