2019 Thoughts

in reply to Paul Harrop:

I second Chess Club on the Ultra comments. It's great for people who want that challenge, but can take away from the experience if you just want that good excuse to make a fun project.

It was deathly hard for our team trying to write animals into the lead when we had amassed a huge group of actors that we were excited to incorporated. It took a very long 3am walk to write a script, and ended up very happy with a result, but it wasn't the personal experience I wanted. Not that writing without Ultra this year was any easier haha.

I'm also a huge advocate for the old elements (Character, Prop, and Line), personally I found it much easier to write in the short time-span by optimising these elements relevance to your story. I also thought general story quality was better as well, as every team was forced to write a defined character in you would always see at least one character in every film. Whereas the last few years you see a lot of teams with people just playing themselves, and often friends who have similar personalities. I really think the Character element was a great way to keep teams focused on developing character, and helped new teams get the basics right first.

Also beautiful films Chess Club and Dogs Breakfast (we're already planning on making a film inspired by The Drop).

Auckland Heats 2018

According to the city info the first heats won't play until June 5th, some 23 days after the shoot weekend.

Are these the locked in dates, or is it possible these will change?

Had become quite accustomed to screening my film the week after filming it...

Anyone else have thoughts on this? I for one will not be here in June...

Crew needed for exciting comedy short film!

Hi Everyone,

We are looking for a Cinematographer, Art Director, Makeup Artists, VFX and SFX artists to join our crew for an awesome short film we're making about wizards. It will be in a similar style to our latest (our 8th) 48 hour: but with much higher production values. We have the cast sorted and a lot of the crew but need to find the right people for these key roles. Please include some of your work (such as 48 hours), especially lighting if you're keen to DoP.

Cheers!
James & Kris (Brothers in Crime)
