THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE
The films are complete!!!
It's our 8th adventure with MAP48 and 8 intrepid teams braved what was one off the best MAP48 weekends to date. They took their props and lines and the team they had never met before, and set about creating magic. On Sunday 22nd January, whilst others hid from the freezing weather, they gathered before the judging panel and the films were shared...
What an INCREDIBLE weekend! It was one of firsts; we had the quickest time for a film to be wrapped (15 hours left!), a drone and some epic CGI! Stunning work from everyone; dynamic writing, sensitive acting, powerful photography, slick direction and skilled editing. It truly was a thing to behold. The results from our top judging panel; Steve Hughes, Sherelle McCalla, Melissa Johns, George Bukhari, John Phillipson and Dara McKeagney can be seen below along with all the films;
