Shoot Weekend confirmed: June 14 - 16

Unless I'm advised otherwise, I'm not gonna disqualify teams if they have guns in their film.
But don't put guns in your film.

Christchurch - fantastic year

in reply to Andrew Todd:

Yep. Ultra's purpose is for teams looking for that extra bit of challenge for the weekend, the grand prize is just an acknowledgement for the team that did it best. In the same way you don't HAVE to do animation bit if you do, you could win a prize for it.

Christchurch - fantastic year

in reply to TheNimbleMarmoset:

My assumption is that if a team entered with Ultra, then didn't adequately satisfy the Ultra requirement in their film, presumably that wouldn't disqualify them from judging consideration in the way that failure to include the usual elements does (but it would at least effectively disqualify them from consideration for the Ultra award).

Judging this kind of thing can get very abstract, especially with the aforementioned clarifications around what counted as a main character. But if you did ultra this year, and blatantly didn't include a child or animal as main characters in any way, shape or form, then you would be disqualified completely.

And AJ - great job mate. I think you’ve brought a fresh wave of energy to the competition. Please sign on for next year!

Thanks Dave! I have felt very warm and fuzzy about all the kind words people have been giving me this year, and I can confirm that I will be returning to the role next year if you'll have me.

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

in reply to squire:

OMG IT'S YOU!?!
Seriously the identity of the Wikipedia page editor was one of the biggest unsolved 48 mysteries, because it was no one on staff and it's been an insanely helpful resource lol.

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

in reply to TheNimbleMarmoset:

That's a strong contrast with what I might argue was the single worst required element ever, last year's Wilhelm Scream, where outside of a handful of very specific contexts, it was almost impossible to make it feel like it belonged in the film.

I have a love/hate relationship with the Wilhelm Scream because without it my film would't have had an ending (not a very good ending but an ending nonetheless).

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

in reply to steelpotato:

That's quite interesting AJ, because 'heist' also gives characters a theoretical desire right? Do you think it's the more fantastical nature of "wish" that's given it an edge?

What a good counterpoint!

I would say, while both "Wish" and "Heist" give characters a desire, "Heist" seems to be more steeped in cliche. There are more genre conventions with "Heist" which people (don't have to but) tend to follow. "Wish" is a lot more simple and open.

With "Technological Thriller", a lot of them tended to be quite well made, but their central concepts were all very similar, vaguely following sentient computers/software attacking humans, or a LOT of sterile white office buildings and labs. The idea behind the genre was basically supposed to be "Make a mini black mirror episode", though even Black Mirror itself is getting a little stale with its ideas these days.

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

As someone who has watched well over 200 films in this year's haul, I have to say, the two genres that stick out the most and frequent a lot of the shortlists are "Wish" and "Fish Out of Water".

I'd say this is because they both intrinsically give the script a leg up in the character arc department. As Andrew said, "Wish" gives your character a desire so you're able to start with any number of tried and true story structures around a character wanting something, and "Fish Out of Water" immediately places your character in a place where they're able to react and journey into unfamiliar territory, which often results in at least an interesting story with some amount of flavour.

When suggesting genres next year, I'm gonna take this kind of stuff into consideration and see if we can come up with a few more head start genres.

For the record, while not necessarily the worst genres, I'd say the most 'samey' films come from "Technological Thriller" and "Heist". This of course means when there is a unique one in these genres, it pops, but I would have liked to have seen a touch more originality in the various takes on these genres.
