48Hour Filmmaking 2022

Back to Showcase

Relative Showcase

On Friday 12 August, the genres and features were released for the annual weekend of film making throughout New Zealand.

Flower Unlimited created a crime movie, Hornby Heroes, a Pavlova Western. Yay! Wait, what is a Pavlova Western? How do you make a teenage crime movie? Time for research and some concentrated creative brainstorming.

On a sunny Saturday 13th August, the two 48Hour Film-making teams got underway. Hornby Heroes NZ flavoured Pavlova Western featured Sam, Molly, Jess, Emalea, Nadia, Meagan & Sofia,  while Flowers Unlimited featuring Lauren, Faith, Jhermaine and Louise created a Crime movie. Both genres seemed to involve playing cards. They had to include “a sign, a whisper, a worm or bird’s-eye view and a gate-keeper” . Teams were well prepared with scripts, props, camera gear, and the all important snacks. Filming went well.

Sunday 14 August: Post production – editing, sound track, special effects. There was a lot of pressure on lead editors Sam [Hornby Heroes] and Lauren [Flowers Unlimited] right up tothe 7pm deadline. Both teams succeeded in making films. Wild West Coast Story [HornbyHeroes] was a rollicking comic yarn and Know You [Flowers Unlimited] a sinister plot twister. Both screened in the Christchurch heats and “Know You” was an audience favourite. Well done to both teams.
