2012 GRAND FINALISTS & WILDCARDS

Congrats to all the finalists! Stoked to see Wiz-nap and Glow up there! Should be a good night, excited to see Brains? after all the great reviews it's been getting!

Surely all the butthurt about other regions not being represented can wait until we can see all the films that made it?

Reviews

in reply to Ben Fowler:

I'll be happy with more than 1 haha.

Yeah, it stinks only getting one, although it makes you appreciate the fact that somebody took the time to write it up in the first place haha.

I review all the films in my heat every year and always appreciate it when the favour is returned - it is hard reviewing films though, especially hours or days after the heat, and trying not to note technical hiccups which teams are usually all too aware of already (except I mention them anyway in case they weren't - can't hurt right?) which makes me appreciate the effort put in by regulars like steelpotato, MistaTeas, Taunise etc that much more

NSFW - If your film is NSFW, post it here

It's only audio that makes it so, so if you're wearing all-over headphones it should be fine (except if you do that you'll hear everything that went wrong with audio so maybe don't)

Sideways yours is very cool! WIll get around to watching more at some point

the trifecta of bullshit

in reply to clattybella:

"Sexiest Short" refers to the technically "sexiest" looking short, i.e. slick camera-work, editing, fx, audio, music etc.

Edit: What Ryan said

in reply to Andrew Todd:

Which actually has the subtitle "Or: How I Learned To Stop Being Pretentious And Love Cliche".

I was waiting for someone to call me out on that. Instead of cliche I should have said "crappy looking with fake guns and bad effects". Which also describes Agent Post, I know, I know! I'll show myself out.

Genre / Finalists

in reply to Peter Haynes:

Agreed. Having never made one myself, I can imagine it takes a lot of thought and skill to get it right without being too cliche, as well as having a cinematographer and editor who know how to put together a convincing action sequence that doesn't reveal any of the production without being too confusing and disorienting for the viewer. Agent Post is one of the best action films I've seen in this comp, but not one that can be replicated really

School Teams?

Everyone is on the same playing field. But usually there is also a prize category for Best School Team or Teen Team from memory, which can be won by someone who didn't make the final. I may be corrected on this though.

Screening Room upload issues

in reply to Ant Timpson:

Hi Ant, apparently my editor is still having issues uploading to the screening room, and it says to send through some details to you. I must have made an absolute mess of the wrap-up form/had a faulty connection/sent it to the wrong dimension etc.

What do we need to send through to enable upload? Thanks!

How is it not good spirit? Our heat has been and gone, and no one (including me) had seen it fully until then.
