    1. you’ve got to be joking!

      WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME or HANGAR 7 … HANGAR 7 is more fitting with the tone of the first chapter. I would be surprised if it didn’t win.

        1. I don’t think you have to follow the story. The competition is about interpreting the final still, but I feel since people want to see what happens next, they will always vote to continue the story, instead of voting for a totally different approach, my next entry will sorta try to reboot this story in a comedic approach, hope I can pull it off.

  1. Wow, all these finalists are fantastic and I really want to know what happens next in them. The filmmakers definitely should keep their story going even if they don’t win.

    My favourite is Hangar 7 for it’s build up of a world… but the next film will have to continue with the world cause it follows the character… but like any TV show, you can kill off a character in the first minute of the next episode…

    So I would say either Divided or Wrong Place Wrong Time would allow the next entrants more creative freedom.

    But I’m still gonna vote for Hangar 7, cause it’s just so damn Matrix cool.

    Wish I lived in America so I can enter 🙁

  2. All these pieces are simply beautiful, both in their technique and their narrative. Although I have to admit I like the way Hangar7 develops the story more, creating a whole new sci-fi atmosphere to it. Another thing thats interesting is that all five candidates had better technical results than the cabbie having a lot less equipment and budget (for example that scene with the horrible whitewash in the girls bedroom).

  3. And I voted for “JOB SECURITY.” I for one would never want to judge any of these entries with most of them being down right awesome, to a big handful of them being simply outstanding. The effort and talent displayed in this contest is truly magnificent, congratulation to all of you that entered, BRAVO!!

  4. I voted for Divided, I really like the way they made the switch from still to movie by making it literally.

    Although the steadicam work was a bit shaky, the rest of the cinematography really aspired to real hollywood thriller/adventure movie.

    I also like the pacing, and they ware really effective at presenting the conflict of interest in a quick but still mysterious way – this both captures the audiences attentions quickly but still teases their curiosity.
