666 Short Cuts To Hell - The Finalists

Post by TheDukeAbides » Tue Aug 27, 2013 10:22 pm

This isn't going to be about the shorts that were shown, they should be in a separate thread(s).

First off, I thought it a bit daft that we didn't know which film maker had done which film.

Hence when the winner was announced (apologies as I forgot her name) there was calls of "which one" and when Ian confirmed the film the applause went up again as it seemed there was a consensus amongst the audience.

I do wonder how many films out of the 157 submitted were called '6 feet under'.

Those 2 were the best, the mortuary one and the pop video one.

Wasn't too keen on the first one (WTF) and the second one with the tentacle, so it makes me wonder what the non-finalists were like, but seeing as 26 are apparently being released on DVD we can soon see.

I seem to remember the titles were ready-made, and the film-makers had to choose one (out of 6 I guess) so this just added to the confusion. Maybe next time the rules should state the directors name needs to appear under the title.

I wasn't the only one who thought I was watching an intro video to the competition, and not one of the actual films (I twigged about 2 minutes into it) :|

I agree, I was thinking what flipping film won the prize??? Glad Six Feet Under won it - it deserved to win. I liked the mortuary one too, that was well made and the ending was cool. Both very different but enjoyable.

The one that ended with the tentacle - I also had a WTF moment with that one.

It's only being released on VOD through iTunes and Blink box at the moment. Depending on its success a physical release will be considered.

If these were the 6 best of all submitted, I can't imagine how bad the others were.

Winning entry was terrible!!!!
