Missing sections

The new website layout looks good but I noticed that some of the sections in the forums are missing?

Like the tech section, I can't find that section anymore?

Terra Cine camera

I think it looks like a fabulous camera. Hopefully one of the New Zealand camera shops will start selling there products at some point.

A good alternative to things like the Red Camera range and others ?

Don't they also have a full frame video camera in the works ?

Terra Cine camera

Has anyone had any experience with this camera ?

http://www.kinefinity.com/terra/?lang=en

I dont know too much about video camera's and wasnt really aware of companies in the sub $10000 camera range outside of the canons, sony's, blackmagic and panasonic .

Then i heard about kinefinity last week and there range of camera's. Ive just seen some small companies cobble together parts here and there and make things that aren't that great but then other times they can actually be really good.

Christmas

Did anyone out there do a Shane black/die hard style action movie or have a red rider BB gun or leg lamp in their film ?

Stock Footage- Thoughts?

After seeing rogue 1, the Bourne ultimatum and the thing I would of liked it if the organisers had given the option of prequel as well as sequel for the ultra segment of the competition.

Would be cool to see a film start off with lots of mystery then come back a year later and make a prequel that leads up to it.

Ultra 48, just how bad could it be 😉

Yes maybe the reason they are asking for proof that you have entered 4-5 + in previous years isn't just to show that you are experienced.

I think it would be fun to revisit past films in some way, although casting and things might be difficult.

Imagine if each team had a customized set of criteria based on there previous films in the competition. Would be quite an extra work load for the organizers though.

Animation short

Thanks ! Filming in doors with proper lighting really helped things. usually we film the green screen shots outside and have to deal with wind catching the green screen and the light changing.

We were also lucky to have proper uniforms and props this time.

Whose thinking of doing animation for the 48 hour this year ?

Setting yourself a challenge for this year

We used a cardboard mini gun that a friend made in 3-4 of our early 48 hour films.

LOVE.EXE Post-mortem

Saw your film at the final sam and thought it was fabulous too.

I've always wanted to do some sort of animation for the competition but I fear my time management isnt anywhere near quick enough to get it done with in 48 hours.

Next Years Competition

Yeh, i dont mind either. the only thing that puts april or may over the top for me is the weather is generally better that time of year.

I just wonder if they would have enough time to organize one for april. we just had the grand final on friday and then in 4 and a half months another competition starts ?

Sony Catalyst

Has anyone used the new editing software Sony/magix Catalyst ?

Is it any good ? I used to use vegas up until about 5 years ago and really liked it until i started getting messages about not having enough memory or something so moved to Adobe Premiere which i like.
