CHCH Predictions - Top15, Shortlist25 & a School List

what does everyone think of the new shortlist thing?

For teams outside the top 25: Keeps the momentum/hype of the 48Hours weekend, being able to watch films from heats which you couldn't attend or from other regions. Allows films to be uploaded earlier, more reviews can be written, get feedback for next year, etc.

For teams in 11~25: Gutting definitely once the finalists are announced, but as TheNimbleMarmoset said, it gives those teams a future goal for next year's competition. These are generally the teams who are active in the community through the forums, facebook, and review site. This is healthy for the competition, I think, on top of AJ's reviews (For Christchurch at least), the quality of films can only get better! slight bias maybe being in top 25

For teams in top 15: Not much of a change imo, the "tier 1" films from that year are mostly determined after heats presumably.

You haven't even seen my film, Seigan!

Its good to see an new up-and-coming team such as Everything Sticks in the competition! Exciting to see the growth of the team in future years! \s

Of Mr Teas' list, 14/15 of his top 15 and 5/10 of the top 25 (Total of 19/25) correct predictions. Even gave himself a cheeky nomination, well deserved! Congrats to everyone!

I think it will be Stu Gilpin. Not for any particular reason, but just to fill in a space. Just like CruelWorld was only there to fill in a spot in the finals... Just kidding Mr Gilpin, but who else could fill Andrew's massive role he will leave behind?
