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

Two nights of heats down in Auckland and the biggest element issue is folks simply not integrating the puddle properly... most it's just someone incidentally walking through a wet spot on their way elsewhere. Hpwever, there have been a couple of rather good blood puddles and a pregnancy breaking water.

Now that Andrew Todd is leaving, who are candidates in CHCH to fill his shoes?

in reply to Searlo:

Thank you Dave, but I don't think Christchurch needs more of my arm flailing, swearing and bad microphone technique. ;)

Want your film reviewed? I'll do the first 10 in this thread.

Hi Liam!

Just to add to Craig's post above - I'm most proud of how our film could easily stand up outside of the comp.

Whats up with heat 10?

There is actually a button to be able to add a "team comment" now, so writing your own reviews there just lets the whole team down really.

Ultra teams: What did you think?

I'm looking forward to the year musical gets excluded from the genres and Ultra is "REMAKE a previous 48Hours short you've made, as a musical"... wait, no, I'm not looking forward to that at all...

I'm sure mine is quite obvious to anyone familiar with the show from which my name is synonymous. ;)

Dq'd for singing a song

I once had to DQ a team from comp for singing "Stop, Collaborate and Listen". Was tough, but had to do it to keep the rules (and legals) fair.

Which genre was the hardest to pull off this year? And why was it yours?

We got Last Person on Earth and I was very happy with that.
The tropes of that genre came easily, so a story formed itself nice and strongly around the framework, I think. The only real challenge was background noise/cars/etc on location and having to cover with ADR.

Of all of the genres, the one that stuck out to me as the most difficult was Black Comedy. Soooo tricky to get the tone right without sounding sarcastic or the humour just going over the audiences' heads. Would love to hear how some of the teams teams that pulled it got on...

You'd probably get bonus points for referencing one of the great trash musicals of the 80s: https://youtu.be/Uix3tbov65o

The Best Dang Christchurch 48 Hours Films of All Time…

in reply to Vincent_Vega:

Nope, no sign of it anywhere since the site that was hosting the older entries got taken down.
I don't think the filmmakers even have the master of it anymore.
I'd ask Cookie to rummage through the archive to see if he can find the submitted tape and post it to the screening room, but he's busy enough as it is.

The Best Dang Christchurch 48 Hours Films of All Time…

in reply to Stuart Broughton:

That's a terrific list Stu! I'd certainly agree with what you've included here.

For me, I cannot go past 2005 Runner-Up GUYS & DOLLS - a Lego Musical with heaps of charm and full of catchy songs - as one of the most memorable highlights of my time involved with the Christchurch comp. It's a shame that its nowhere up online, as it tends to get overlooked. (City Winner BRUISED GOLD is brilliant as well, of course!)
