Fired Up

Great fun with lots of interesting locations, boats, planes, mountains, babes, flames. Some great camera movements, and interesting angles. MFx100. I liked it!

Love n Loathing in Suburbia

Congratulations on pulling off such an intricate and extended one-shot. Kudos for doing it in daylight, where there are no shadows to hide. The old-timeyness of the image worked well, and didnt get annoying. A good solid beating there, always helps, as does an early poo joke. Rollicking soundtrak. The surprise ending was done well too. Wicked.

The Mis-Adventures of Captain Nicky Brick: Space Pirate

Really well done animation. Well paced, visually amazing. Good use of prop. My favourite for the heat. Arrrrr.

Out of Luck

Nice xcu of the screen reflecting in the eyes. Slow-mo pie squashing was traumatic for those of us who love pies. The killer panda, sweet.

Smoke-lahoma

Crackup film, nice moves from the cast and some great reactions from the crowd. Its an experience that you have to just let yourself go and be carried away with.

Me, Myself & I

Wow, that start... if there was anything I could unsee... there were some good moments, the "batman" voice of vic-in-the-mirror was great (but changed back to normal near the end?)

Fired Up

Great fun with lots of interesting locations, boats, planes, mountains, babes, flames. Some great camera movements, and interesting angles. MFx100. I liked it!

Headcase

Really nicely shot. The leaf necklace was great, and worked well. The yucky nut house was genuinely freaky, and it was played straight, well done.

Things to know about me

Musicals are so hard, and you've dived into it with gusto and enthusiasm - great to see! Some good comedic moments, and quite an impressive array of props! Though i enjoyed it a lot, it was perhaps a little long for my taste.

Civil Service

Cool canons, nice use of local features. I felt for Nicky, that boss was a real piece of work, nicely redeemed in the end.

THERE FOR ME

You flash, flash bastards. This was ultra slick. Incredible images, great set, faultless concept. Delivered faultlessly. Loved the NP. The song, and singing, were great. Excellent use of line and prop, and an incredible slow-mo. Wow.

Get Your Head in the Frame

A bit of fun, got a few laughs from the crowd. My favourite part was the spaz-out-on-the-grass scene. Nice moon in the background of one of the shots.

ROUNDS

Totally perfect genre for you guys. Obviously well prepared for it, with an impressive arsenal. Not 100% sure about the story, but the action sequences carried it along. Loved the accidental shooting.

Mine

Some good camera skills shown in coping with the one-shot deal. Tricky shooting at night with any camera, but at times the image suffers. This was particularly evident with the slow-mo scene, (unless I missed it elsewhere? - if so, apologies!) which was quite dark so hard to make it out. The audio made it difficult to follow in places.

Stuck

Really nicely done card trick, and lots of fun things to watch, including a halfway decent stunt fall. Heaps of good laughs from the audience, well done.

21.12.12

Some good cloverfieldish action. Got a bit lost with the story. The leaf looked gross!! In a good way.

Self-Contained Flat

Commendable acting, which is not as common in this event as it could be! Really good makeup/fx, some suitable grossness, good tension build at the start. Nicely shot too.

cover to cover

Such a shame this wouldn't play right in the theatre (possibly it rendered wonky?) as it looked great. Good strong idea, followed through nicely to the end, and a good reaction from the audience. A couple of "action" calls from the director still in the mix. The lighting in the balcony scene was really nice and fantasy adventure-like. Always good to get flames in there, and great credits, very arty!

The Legend of Nicky Brick

The rainbow shot was a great score! Shame there were a few focus issues, and little odd music jumps. Funny slow-mo shot!

Infinity

Very nicely shot with well chosen lighting and colouring. Perhaps a little too much on the close ups, maybe a little more variation may have maintained interest?

The Shoe Box

Loved the distinction between the two Nicky's - colour, sound, even pacing. A sweet crane shot. Great acting, and actually successfully inspirational, well done.

Stuck in Stockholm

Much of this film was very dark, which did go with the subject matter very well, but in some cases was a little too dark to see whats going on. Also quite topical I think.

Reunion with Reality

I'm a huge fan of anyone brave (crazy?) enough to do a 48 hour animation. Those eyes... I admit to getting a little lost around the reunion part, but those freaky eyes will haunt my nightmares!

The Brick Flick

I liked the imagery at the start, and the crowd slow-mo was nice. There was some good humour, and the film got its share of laughs. I'm not too sure about the story side of it, but it had that Benny Hill something about it. Sweet moves.

Feed

Successfully creepy, very nicely shot, and good acting to boot. A couple of issues with the audio but overall a film to be proud of.

Flight

Mean dancers, nice intro into the story and characters. Nicely shot, though watch for tripods and other sneaky stuff getting into shots. The ending was kinda weird, but overall very impressive.

DON'T TRUST THE GLITCH IN APARTMENT 23

One creepy into to be sure. Leading into the film with a solid masty scene, things got crazy. Sexy-robot-crazy though, with some classic lines like the totally deadpan "coitus complete, powering down". A good watch.

School's Out

Something a bit different from these guys this time, good to see them branching out. Some good acting - Vic was great, at times scary! - and a good eerie feeling to the film. Bullying is topical, and I think the team did really well in restraining themselves from the final explosive...err...explosion.

HARDWIRED

Some great effects used, that worked well to add to the story rather than distract from it. The lead was very sci-fi looking too!

Morgan and The Moustache

Everyone loves a good moustache. Audio issues were very distracting however. It was good to see a variety of shots and angles being attempted, and I loved the animated snippet!

Winds of Change

Good humour right from the start, well received by the audience. Loved the sweet old radio. Goat urine! A nice, simple concept that flows along easily and manages to sneak in a bit of an uplifting ending.

Consequences

Very blairwitchie, appropriate footage style. The wheezing of the bad guy had me reaching for my puffer.

Blow-Up Love

Very well made film, chocked full of humour, craziness, some great acting, and a great way to approach the genre. The ball idea is fantastic. Really well done on the film!

Reunion with Reality

I'm a huge fan of anyone brave (crazy?) enough to do a 48 hour animation. Those eyes... I admit to getting a little lost around the reunion part, but those freaky eyes will haunt my nightmares!

Silverstone

Really nicely shot and edited, with some subtle effects that blend well with the onscreen action. The acting was wonderfully natural, for such an odd situation, well done to the actors. The dude giving birth was fun. Great film!

Memory GLITCH

The costumes and makeup were really well done, and definitely stood out during the heat. There was also a good build up of tension, good use of music to help this along.

Karmageddon

Nothing to be ashamed of here, this was a great first go, keep at it! The dead cat gag worked well for the audience, and I loved the "what the fuck" slow mo.

Running

Really enjoyed the acting, and there were some great focus pulls and camera work. At times the music overwhelmed the audio. Loved the knife-in-the-back. I did feel a little like the ending was not quite there.

The Dark Guardian

Wow. Right from the get go with amazing logo, this was a polished film. Additionally, I have crane-envy. The location was very appealing too - almost made me want to splash about even though it was really cold in the theatre. Some nice subtle effects too. And Lucy's legs too, I'm just saying. Good work guys!

Must Be Perfect

What a fun jaunt. A murderous husband-seeker indeed. Well acted to good humourous effect, nicely received by the audience. Great fight scene. Loved the bell, a good recurring theme.

20 Days of Songnia

OK, lemme say, the singing may not have been technically perfect, but I found this film enjoyable start to finish. There was some real acting going on, and who doesnt appreciate boob humour. The dance break, legendary. The camera work was superb, and the effects were appropriate and well executed. Really well received by the audience, and congratulations on audience fave, well deserved!

OCDairy

A nice fun little film with an interesting lead character and some laughs for the audience. Good job!

Dead Lucky

Rollicking animation, quite trippy at times. The music is catchy as hell, dammit*&%$%##@

Rosco

Great lead, and some awesome shots that came together into something very enjoyable to watch. Well done!

Sleep My Pretty

Cheesey start, and a little slow paced for me, but played well to the genre. I'm a real fan of those on-the-ground shots too.

ROUNDS

Totally perfect genre for you guys. Obviously well prepared for it, with an impressive arsenal. Not 100% sure about the story, but the action sequences carried it along. Loved the accidental shooting.

On Time

Some decent acting from some of the cast (Polly was a little stiff, however... ;) ) helped to carry this piece along to its beautifully framed conclusion, which was well met by the audience. I kept thinking to myself as I was watching that some tension-building music might have helped to amp up the anticipation. Good effort!

Man in the Mirror

Haha...turtle head... Nice use of the prop, and the line too.

Full Retard

OK, so any movie that begins with an exploding baby is all good by me. Lead actor did a great job of action-heroing, and the accent was both humourous and pretty consistent. Some good hand held shots made the most of their great action setups, and the fight scenes were on the whole not too bad. Loved the fake-slowmo. Also left me with the memorable line of the night "looks like I'll be leaving a floater." Nice work guys, well suited to the genre.
