Tart de Turd

The "oh my god!" at the end was one of my favorite line deliveries from this year festival... it had us in stitches. I just wish the investors had eaten the Tart de Turd as well as the boss... would have been grosser.

Skuxx Dogs 4 Life

Watching this, I genuinely wanted to see what the Skuxx Dogs got up to next. Of all the 48 Hour Films I watched, this was the only one where I felt like I would watch a series starring these characters. Your sound did not do you any favors, but I just really loved the characters and I hope you do more with them in the future. This was my #2 Audience favorite for this heat, it would have been #1 but I had to give that spot to my own film :P

What a shame this was disqualified, it was my #1 out of every Hamilton entry and is as of writing, is on my top 3 nationwide. You guys had everything I want in a 48 hour film, I want to see kids running around with toy guns in a Divergent-style story shot in the school chemistry lab, I want to see dads in trenchcoats playing bad guys, I want to see nods to the Matrix and LOTR, and despite of the essential low fidelity of it all I want the film to take itself seriously, no lame attempts at self-effacing humor, no meta-jokes, no characters winking at the camera, saying "here's our mandatory reaction shot lol!"

The camera work stands out, capturing that young-adult action-adventure tone effectively. I loved the end puzzle, that the queen was on the wrong square, very clever. The performances were fab. The entire thing was finger lickin' good, the product of a team of dedicated people giving it their all to make something cool.

I always prefer the amateur filmmaker teams over the teams of professional filmmakers shooting on RED Rangers with camera jibs and semi-pro actors and WETA VFX guys on their weekends off, I usually find them too try-hard and afraid to let creativity run unbridled, their films usually end up being a snore, nowhere near as good as the young talent dealing in the "backyard filmmaking" aesthetic, a flavour you will never get anywhere else in your movie and TV watching life, you only get it in the 48 Hour Film Festival.

JOSH is the 48 Hour Film Festival at its very best. I loved it, I watched it twice, I hope you guys win best disqualified.

I loved this one and laughed at every misfortune. I just wish he got run over by the car in the end!
