Life After The V48

in reply to Rocket Boy:

Nice effort from Sideways Productions, I enjoyed it.

I'm not sure how showing your disappointment is 'poor sportsmanship', it just shows that you are human.

Cheers mate.

Yeah, the last thing we were trying to do was come off as sore losers.

To be honest I always knew our film wasn't really a contender, considering how "dark" it is. But personally it's my favourite out of the 3 we've done, the most complete, 'My Confession' that is... obviously.

But anyway, the little doco was just something a bit more lighthearted we spontaneously decided to do on the lazy sunday after the AK finals, no real planning; just some solid melodramatic improv from Mr Nicholson and our favourite Samoan.

Seems like our sense of humour is an acquired taste haha.

All good though. Catch yas next year.

10-15! I'll be happy with more than 1 haha. I guess that's better than being hit by garbage reviews though.

Yeah, I'd be keen to see the nominations for those too. Christchurch has them up, must be a delay or something.

Will review any film, just post in here!

in reply to vault502:

Wow.

I honestly had to check if you were someone we know haha. It's not often we get a decent analytical review of our work, let alone one as in-depth as yours. Finally someone who understood the finer details of what we were trying to get across. We took a risk with how we told the story and feel it may have been a bit confusing to some.

In terms of the freeze-frame ending I totally feel the same way, and truly do feel a bit gutted about that, all the ideas I had for it AFTER I got some sleep were killer. There's a couple of factors that lead to the way it ended up, but no point dwelling on it, it is what it is.

But anyway, greatly appreciate the time and effort you put into the review.

Very cool!

P.S. Our first entry into the comp was "The Ventriliquist" last year, if you run out of 2011 films haha.
