2012 GRAND FINALISTS & WILDCARDS

in reply to MalibuBarbie:

Hi Malibu Barbie,

Thanks for your feedback. Each year we strive to make a film that has just the right combination of gimmick and mediocrity. This year I feel we may have hit the jackpot! I too wish we had a nicer camera to film things with but to be honest none of us are really capable enough to be able to use it. My uncle Sir Peter keeps offering to come down and help us with our filming but I’m not sure that’s really in the spirit of things…

I too thought there was a lot of brilliant films from Christchurch. My favourites were the films by The Eh Team, Squint Eastwood, and the Dutch Underground. It would have been great to see them there. I remember that you were the first person (under a different name) to comment on this thread last year as well, in a really similar manner, so twice now you have bummed me out heaps on what would have been an awesome morning. It is of course totally within your right as an internet user but it does seem slightly obsessive and undignified to do so anonymously every year around the same time. But as I said it is of course your right to do so.

We love this comp. really looking forward to the final!

2011 GRAND FINAL AWARDS & DISCUSSION

My thoughts on the final:
- Idiotvision are crazy talented storytellers and will win this competition, surely, at some point in the next few years.
- Grand Cheval were well deserved winners and what I thought was especially special about their film, and this was a credit to both their writing but also their note-perfect performances, was how they managed to get us to care about their characters so much. In a mockumentary no less!
- Tea Jerker came from a place of dark genius and was my favourite film of the night. It is probably the Citizen Kane of films about jizz.
- The Civic is a fucking magnificent theatre and you Aucklanders are so lucky to have it for your finals. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life when those little stars came out on the ceiling, and we got to see our film on the big screen in a packed cinema. I thought it was such a great way to finish the competition this year, the co-hosts were just the right kind of manic and I got plenty drunkered at the after-ball. Thanks heaps again Ant.

Thanks man. A lovely thing about the 48hours is the varying, passionate, (at times) eloquent and competing discussions that happen afterwards. So it's no biggie to us. Like I said, we're just stoked to be hanging in such rarefied air this year.
