Fantastic Musical that actually stayed in One-Room. Bravo Performance and Cinematography that just brought me into complete collapse of joy. I hope you compete again next year! :D

The Loom of Doctor Flowers

This was a fantastically stylised film with its funny points as well as a rather thoughtful Flowers, with an arc that was subversive. Making the audience think that he was an antagonist, when all that time he was rather mistaken; though he could have asked for the lady's preferred color first (oh well..). Though there's nothing integrally or technically wrong with the film, I am left slightly disappointed that the film didn't spook more than it did make the audience laugh. Sure, one could argue that the historical approach to the genre was a neat maneuver - one could have also easily catered for an audience that wasn't so easily spooked and had grown up with a more modern literature of film with scarier themes/stories. All in all, hope we get to see this film in the finals.

Daylight Horror

A plot and setting that could have gone, hand-in-hand, and together make a great film. However, the story was poorly acted and somehow Nicky died without much bodily mutations what so ever... -- Mistake #1 :: Story Just to sum it up... There is no 'tension' within the story that gave the audience a real and authentic 'scare' as Horror films are supposed to provide. The reasoning behind the 'killings' of people weren't explained in huge details as well... Connections between scenes would help a huge lot, especially when explaining the story to an acceptable amount. Mistake #2 :: Music Just somewhat disappointed me slightly. Didn't give the audience a thrill, as any attempt to, would just result in the anti-climax it provided... A pointer for next year, put more focus on the music according to the genre you receive; as this portrays the story in a much more detailed light. -- Hopefully you learn some important things through having this experience. As I always do with my opponents, it's that I wish them luck for future endeavours into the magic that is making a film; furiously in just 48 hours. :) Regards, Call_a_Geek

The Fairy & I

A Grade-A & Polished Product with a simple and easy to follow story-line. Hardly any problems and great SFX used that didn't spoil the work too much; hope you guys really make it far within the competition. -- Don't really know what to write as to mistakes made in this film, because hardly any were made throughout the making of the product. The Story was thoroughly detailed and made me laugh too. -- As I always do with my opponents, it's that I wish them luck for future endeavours into the magic that is making a film; furiously in just 48 hours. ;) Regards, Call_a_Geek

YOLO

This film made me think of what another wise man said..."I'm gonna change the man in the mirror...I have to change my way" The film brings this thing out in a straight-forward and logical way. I loved it! :) P.S :: Mark, don't be such a biast reviewer... Infact, Newlands College reviewers all together; should stop being biast with their own films and 'putting-down' other films without any helpful advice for future competition entries...

LUVSUX

Fantastic use of the character and somewhat original cast members. Very Glad that this team didn't use an excessive amount of night shots and Pills.... We all know we've seen that too much... Music was great, but agree with steelpotato that a song could have been near the end. Other than that, the film was still fantastic! // made me laugh.

Return Of A Nightmare

This film is a masterpiece and surely is commended as this attempt of a V48hour film paid-off, so well done. I found problems with the Storyline, as I'm allergic to huge amounts of films having cliche material. An original storyline should be used in future film competitions as we see teams taking cheap rip-offs of other major influences. The Ghost in my opinion wasn't acted in the sense that most people thought of, so you might want to manipulate the Camera, Sound and or Story-line to make sure that the Character (Bobbie) is portrayed in the best way you want. Finally, make sure that if one guy gets sufficient amounts of damage, that you actually create a really 'funked' up face next time :D

Office Fantasy Challenge

The fact that Paraparaumu College entered this year seems to be the biggest mistake made... Both Teams, Teachers and Students, made horrible films. I don't even point out in detail the mistakes made in the film/tv show...

2 GUYS 1 SLUT

A beautiful movie about the mistaken relationship of 2 guys, leaving the slut with the person with bad luck, Nicky. Don't really have anything else to elaborate on as the film was the best out of all the Newlands entries. As I always do with my opponents, it's that I wish them luck for future endeavours into the magic that is making a film; furiously in just 48 hours. :) Regards, Call_a_Geek

Be One

This film had the best use of the "Lame" Factor, in the way that it was just so Epic! The Sound were the best out of all the other films, so was the storyline (very original...) All in all, very epic movie!! :D
