Indeed.

That flashback scene was a little long. We did a sequel some years later, but did not get the response this one did.

On the 48Hours DVD for 2010, our very rough cam cut was also on the disc.

Enjoy!!

We got Best Disqualified film for Driveby Stigmata in 2010. We got some exposure on TV (as they used to show a selection each night) and also at the Grand Final. We had technical issues with the export which meant we had to record on to a camcorder pointed at the monitor. We won the audience vote, but were then DQ'd. Running time was about 23 seconds over.

in reply to Joseph Moore:

Well, this is my first Grand Final as an actor in 8 years of trying. Closest was Best DQ'd in 2010 with Driveby Stigmata. Running time was over!

I am immensely proud of the fact we have made this Grand Final with Finest Creation, which was the only pure drama in a very strong Auckland Finals'. There were simply no really weak films in that group and it must have been a really hard job even picking that list.

Now that it's an International panel, I am really pleased just for our little short to be in these select handful.

For me, and I have acted in over 50 short films' now in my 8 or so years of acting, this is one of my personal favourites' and even I find it hard to watch, so I am hoping the judges feel the same in the nicest possible, emotionally moving sense.

Good luck to all in the Grand Final, as it's sure to be a worthy winner this year.

Reflection?

Smoothest shoot of my 8 years so far and I guess a final place shows how relaxed it was.

Read a first draft around 1am and then a changed version on the Saturday morning on arrival at 'set'. Felt the well of emotion at that point, knew from the people we had that it would look and sound great regardless. Decent actors' (hopefully my performance was ok Lol), so knew we had something potentially special.

Great interpretation of the genre in my view and 9 hours later, we were done. Wrapped by 7pm on the Saturday.

For me, one of my favourite roles in my 50 or so shorts' in my 8 years' acting.

The shorter running time has meant story compression and it seems screenwriters' really focusing on simplicity, from what I've seen and heard.

A great year for us. First time team in the 48.

All the best to everyone in Auckland tomorrow and all the other Regional Finals.

Puppet did well. For a genre that initially filled us with the same kind of doubt and fear that Musical did, ours got the to Final.

Just read the list of finalists, and I'm so angry about number 6

Thought that might be the case. Thanks for that...
