  • Hi,

    check out the link to kids vid website on the resources page.

  • Hi guys,

    Last year we had a 1 minute limit on the films. This was to ensure that there was a focus on the visual impact of the movie (we also had no voice -most movies were accompanied with a music score only). If we are looking to have our movies shown at State Cinema 6 should we make them a bit longer? Cass expressed concern that she would not have been able to make hers any longer last year.

    We could make it up to 3 minutes? What do you think? I would like to see them kept short and effective personally as opposed to allowing them to get longwinded -we do only have 3 days!!

    I checked out the V 48hour film website and they have between 1 and 7 minutes as their duration requirements (schools can enter that comp too did you know !!??)

    What do you think?

  • Premiere:

    We have the opportunity to hold our premiere at State Cinema 6 as part of their 75 year anniversary. I received this email yesterday;

    "We would love to make this a Super Dooper event for the kids so sound them out about getting dressed up like they were going to the oscars! 
    We will have a red carpet and photographers and the newspaper and radio there.
    I presume early evening would be best - what time would you suggest they arrive on Saturday 2nd July so I can start planning around the arrival time?
    What would some of the kids think about being picked up and driven to the cinema in Classic Cars for a grand entrance?
    I thought the kids might all like to do posters or flyers to stick up around Nelson about the event.
    As for ticket sales - I think if the kids sell the tickets and you think of a price that is going to suite your market. You could go crazy and charge $2 for the kids and more for the adults. Try and fill the cinema of 196 seats. Invite the Mayor. Invite a few famous people - you never know. Tell the TV! 
    Radio Nelson - that is Radionetworks 41 Selwym Pl, have exclusive radio rights to this event. They will be the ones there on the day. ie Classic Hits/ ZM"

    Do we use this as our full premiere and use the Suter for a 'Flick it on!' premiere in term 3?
