25 Jun 48 Hours of Furious Filmmaking 2019
The 48 Hours Filmmaking competition challenges students from across New Zealand to write, shoot and edit a short film. This year, six groups from Pakuranga College entered and, for such a challenging and stressful competition, it was shockingly stress free.
Filmmaking took place from Friday 14th to Monday 17th June. All teams had finished filming on Saturday and produced a rough cut from Saturday evening. ALL 6 teams completed and handed in their films with 1 hour 30 mins to spare!
The genres/themes allocated were as follows:
Year 11s: Gross Out / Cringe Comedy AND Real Time movie
Year 12s: Secret Identity movie AND Opposites Attract movie
Year 13s: Wrong Place / Wrong Time movie AND The Holiday Movie
We also awarded our own special awards at the end of the competition based on the school’s learning values:
- Lily Jalfon Taylor – MVP award – For showing Connect & Respect – Working together as part of a team, showing leadership in the edit, respected feedback and working hard to apply this, including and incorporating others’ ideas and suggestions.
- Jimi Webb – Busy Bee award – For showing Strive & Reflect – Worked non-stop all weekend, worked tirelessly, super organised, kept his team on track and working, took on feedback well and applied that feedback superbly.
- Manny Corpuz – Auteur award – For showing Create – Problem solving around editing and sound, showing creative flair and technical innovation in the edit, working with musicians in Christchurch to source music, designed graphics for a video game fight sequence.
At the HAND IN on Sunday at 7pm, the organisers told us:
