yes! i KNOW! very exciting - I look fwd to seeing their entry, sorry I missed that heat.. I considered making a stereo 180VR film - but chickened out, with all the post rendering and sound considerations.. would need more like 96hrs

VR is so hot right now..
Find a sponsor to provide a dozen or so VR camera rigs...
Invite all 48hr teams to submit (secret) VR pitches to a panel of experts
The best 12 get access to VR filming gear for 48hrs
Post production would need a bit extra time; chugging thru 8k 360 or stereo 180 vr files and managing surround sound is quite a bit more taxing than standard films16:9 output...
but it would be really interesting to see what folks came up with given open slather
pps... we had genuine side-splitting fun making our entry - cheap fx / boom shadows / at one point a random citizen walked in the background of a shot and i nearly wet myself at the irony - now i regret i didn't put that shot in - it was the epitome of z-grade... sigh
I have it! when you find out you got z-grade... immediately contact a really bad director and crew, and employ them to make an earnest film with no idea why... and then submit whatever they come up with
i thought everyone in heat 1 i saw used the wilhelm scream really well, and it wasn't such an eye-rolling experience as i expected after all the whinge-ing on here - so there :P
ps. being accused of "faux z-grade" in reviews =) ... that's a funny thing... how does one make a "genuine" z-grade film - without being aware you've been asked to make a z-grade film (?) ... guess I ain't no natural born Tommy Wiseau
any films so far show the "TAKE RISKS" that Ant was after ?
VERRRY happy we got Z-GRADE... but SURVIVAL sounds like a hoot
DO IT... NAKED 48hrs.. no requirements.. just be radical and unpredictable.. unconventional.. left field.. nutso
maybe you guys should set up a POLL for this?
