48hrs registration closing in about an hour!!

Ok folks ,
If you haven't registered a team by now , well you're too late for this year .
In just over a week , those of us who registered (thanks Greg) , will be waiting to hear what our surprise genre/prop/line/character will be . Then , we won't sleep for a couple of days as we will be immersed in film making .

If you wanted to partake in the 48hr comp , but weren't able to register for some reason , I urge you to go ahead and make a movie that weekend anyway .With or without the 48hr criteria .

I'll talk more about the "Gone in 60 seconds" film making jam at a later date , but keep the concept in your mind and start thinking of possible ideas for a 1 min movie .

If that works out , and if people have fun , well , I have another fun idea up my sleeve to follow up with .Stay tuned.

I've added a new link to the links area on the right of the screen .
it's to , who, in their own words, "( is a behind-the-scenes Web portal that provides an intimate, fresh look into the process of making a movie by the insiders themselves. MakingOf’s mission is to champion the art and craft of entertainment creation.

It's an interesting new site .

I want to put together some movies for screening at the next meeting ( where we will have more time and space to chat and mingle ) , so if anyone has a project they want shown , drop me a line .


Be sure to try and find time to check out the Wild South Film Festival on at the PARADISO cinema over the next week or so . Screenings are reasonably priced and run from early in the day .

What's are some of your favourite movies?

Remember to leave a comment here so I know I'm not writing to my self . Don't make me sign up to Twitter!.


  1. Hey Rob,

    I'm afraid to say that the 48hr movie ship has sailed for me this year - I've got a couple of projects going on at the moment though, so it's all good. I look forward to hearing about how the shoots - and the next meeting, as I didn't get to stick around for too long last time.

    So, 'til the next time!


  2. Hey I missed the 48hs by now I guess, I don't know much people around really. If there is a group and need help I would love to be part just shout and I'll be there, for this project or any other.
    Thank you thairocksuperstar, Robert, Paradiso and all of you I don't know your names but are involved in getting people toghether and share.
    Have a nice day and smile, the sun is trying to give us warmmmm !

Folks , I have enabled the setting for comments from anyone , so you don't need to have to be a registered user etc.
If however the site starts to receive spam or abuse from the usual spam suspects out there on the web , well...then I will turn the need to register back on .
Hope it all goes well .
thank you.
