First, a big thank you to everyone who took the time to make and enter a film. Regardless of the outcome, it is definitely a huge achievement just to get that far. Many start the journey, but few complete it. So hats off to those of you who completed and entered.

We've enjoyed the films and appreciate the effort that was put into creating them.

And now, without further ado, here are your top 10 finalists (in alphabetical order):


Dead Drop - dougspice
LAWLESS - Marlon Ladd
Little Voice - Alex Jeffery
Occupational Hazards - Tim Joy
ROM - Ben Sliker
The Dinner Guest - DC Ninjas
The Indispensable Chaucer - jared.c.rogers
The Slice - lyonfilms
Voices From The Dark - AJ Brooks
xepoj - namelok




Congratulations to everyone who entered... and best of luck to the finalists... Remember, you are rating each film individually. This is a star system.. it is not a ranking system. You can have 3 films a 7, two as a 6, four as an 8... whatever... just think of it like putting stars on a video at youtube.

You can view and rate the films you haven't yet rated that are on the finalists list using the same url as before....

Okay Richard... now that I know that you control the voting, maybe we can have a chat? Just between me, you, and this $100 bill I got here?

Congrats! Everybody.

I think I commented on everyone's films. If I missed you let me know.

Man, my number one didn't even make the top ten. :(

Rodney V. Smith
03-16-2010, 04:39 PM
By the way, this means that the rest of the 39 films are now free to exhibit elsewhere on the web or wherever. The long night is over. We are free to the world.

(Now let's get Jason or Larry to confirm this)

Larry, I logged in on the link you provided and I was able to log in, but there were no stars next to the finalists to rate them.

Larry, I logged in on the link you provided and I was able to log in, but there were no stars next to the finalists to rate them.

In the rules it says that if you already rated them, your rating is locked in and carried forward and can't be changed. You can only rate them if you haven't already rated them.

Jaime V
03-16-2010, 05:25 PM
I thought there was supposed to be another round of voting for the finalists or something...I'm going to go back and read the rules again.

Just out of curiosity are we going to be able to see what the scores were going into the final round at all? for all the films I mean, so we could see how far or close we came? Before the top ten films ratings fluctuate due to the next round?

My top ten list looks a little different. My top 7 made it in. I'm pretty happy.

Marlon Ladd robbed himself. "The End" not making it in over "Lawless" is like Scorsese winning an Oscar for "The Departed" and not for "Taxi Driver". In my opinion "The End" was a much better film -- night and day difference. The acting, the cinematography, the editing, the writing, everything was better in "The End". I really liked "The End". Ok, that's "The End" of my rant. I promise I won't write "The End" again.

Some major upsets for me that I wish would have at least made it in the top 10:

Facade - elegant, to the point, simple, wonderful, beautifully shot and edited
Stretched - beautiful writing, performance, cinematography, music
The E@# (of course) - I don't think I need to go on about this one.

I'm sorry you didn't make it in. You had my attention and consideration.

Anyone who wants to know their rating can just PM Larry R or Jason Ramsey and they will let you know your results.

Thanks for the looking out. We were kinda bummed nothing came about of Stretched. I'm planning on going back and rewatching these ten, and reconsidering them as finalists versus them all on a large scale again.

Thanks, guys. I'm glad you really liked "The E@#." I got one in though, so I'm blessed. Congrats to all the finalists.

Congratulations to the finalists and everyone else who entered. Job well done.

That list is missing a couple of my favourites but it's a pretty nice list overall.

Nice going.

I really thought Two Dicks was going to be in the top ten. It really had a very natural feel for the flow. Those guys played their parts exceptionally well. Other than that, the list seems just about what I was expecting. Congrats to everyone!

I didn't have time to watch many of the films the last week or so. I did watch and vote on a few. One made it to the second round. So I'm watching the rest and voting. I'm really blown away on how good these films are so far. Great job and congrats to everyone who got a film done for this fest.

Larry-

I'm not seeing my votes when I'm logged in? I know they can't be changed, but I don't remember what I rated some and want to check it out. Is that something that's not working or is it supposed to be that way? Thanks
