What exactly is a 48-hour film contest you say? Teams show up on a Friday evening at the designated start/finish location and are given a genre, required prop, line of dialogue, character and filming technique. They then have exactly 48 hours to write, shoot, edit, score and hand in their 1-7 minute film. This year, 650 teams qualified for the contest throughout New Zealand.
Not expecting much in way of prizes their first year in the competition, Team Loaded Gunn garnered four regional nominations, winning three of their categories (Best All Chick Team, Best Female Director, Best Dolly Zoom). Francesca Jago went on to pick up a win at the National finals for Best Female Director.
