DQ'd. Hung over lead has to deliver a presentation on USB by a certain time to his office, requiring a lot (and I mean a LOT) of running through Wellington streets with music over-top. I don't know why he didn't just email it in! Oh dear, I don't know where to start with this one ... way to many logos or brands everywhere, including all through those streets. No story, no purpose for the pot of breakfast cereal. Bumps into a bunch of street kids playing basketball (yep - the "ball of choice" for this years 48 prop, it's either that or a stress ball). Sound also needed a lot of work even in the controlled environments. Sorry guys, spend a bit more time reading the rules.


A man tries to get his USB somewhere before a deadline. The weird thing about this one is it seemed to be the exact opposite of its genre - it was supposed to be race against the clock, but the character seemed to be doing the exact opposite of that at every moment by taking a really long time to do anything. That may have been on purpose, but it didn't work for me.



The story basics I think were here. Race against clock story. Guy needs to hand in USB work assignment before a certain time. Cool. The rest is just fun and games. Unfortunately the pace was so slow that it ruined the urgency of the story. Keep it simple 'enter the scene late and leave early.' What I think you will also notice is that a lot of jokes that seem funny at 1am when your high on V don't translate two weeks later on the big screen in front of a large audience. CEEERIIIALLLLL
