Gems of the Screening Room Lockdown Edition

Hey alla ya'll
I'm keen to check out all the great films which didn't make the cut!
Being only 10 out of 1200 films got featured, I'm sure there are some excellent pieces of work hiding away in the screening room so please share the best ones you've found here! Only rule is you can't share your own film!

Here are the best ones I have found so far:
GAVIN IN THE WOODS by Bork! (Not yet in the screening room)
THE QUIET MOON by Lamington Wolf
DOOM RAIDERS by Jovial Entertainment (Not yet in the screening room)
HOME INVASION by PlanetFoxFilms
MIMI by Dragon V Mouse
LOOKEY LUKE by 1/4 JAGBOG
CHAQUITA BANANA by Cactus?

I haven't got through many yet, so I might keep updating this list. Review the films!

Christchurch City Finals: morning-after de-brief/-lirium/-tox

in reply to Cardinal:

AJ what are you doing here, instead of posting more reviews of finalists?!

I'm trying, I've become very sick with a flu. I think my body was doing me the honours of holding it off until as soon as the finals were over.

Christchurch City Finals: morning-after de-brief/-lirium/-tox

in reply to TheNimbleMarmoset:

Bring that back next year please AJ!

I did this last year for the score/song award specifically, forgot about it this year until it was too late. But even then, music is still playing as people make their way to the stage.

As a beginner, should I use Final Cut Pro (10.3) or the Adobe Premiere?

From my experience, and this is the experience of someone who uses Premiere, Premiere is more prone to crashing, but is WAAAAY easier to get a grip of. In my opinon, Final Cut is something you sit down and work out how to use over the course of a couple of days, while Premiere is mostly self explanatory.

Classic Bants (whats your best 48hour story?)

in reply to TheRealClose:

In 2016 we handed in with about 4 minutes to spare.

Yo Ben I'ma let you finish, but in 2014 Les Cousins Dangereux handed in with only 30 seconds to spare, and we came runner up in Christchurch that year.

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.

Although I'm still interested in how our talking Pheotus from inside a pregnant teenager at high school story would have turned out! hahahahaha.

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.
