Bain Free to Compete against NZ's Top Films

Our 48 Hours film team is still in a bit of a state of shock, after we managed to win the Dunedin regional final of the 48 Hours film contest on Thursday night.

Our Musical genre entry, Bain: The Musical (The Trevor Bain Story), won the top Dunedin award for Best Film (as well as Best Score, which was the main one we'd been hoping to win ;-)

Go the Jumpers! The team after our win...
The Burt Hall Banana Republic Productions film will now represent Dunedin at the National 48 Hours Final, which screens on C4 TV on July 1st. The result leaves Bain free to compete against the other 5 city finalists, plus Director Peter Jackson's wildcards. Vote Bain on the night!

Cheers to the judges and to many of our fellow teams for your kind and positive comments after our win.

Major Congratz go out to the many other quality teams in the Dunedin Finals... especially Runners Up, Team Almost Fabulous for their Horror film, Dark Turn.

Other corkers in the Dunedin Final were:
* Skipped: The Birth and Death of Extreem Skip-it
(Team Zapstein The MFCG - Yeh Callum!)
* The Track (Monumental Tool - Yeh Patsy!)
* C.O.C.S. (Team Super-Best-Friends)
* The Felt-tastic Four (Bantha Fodder - Yeh Bushy!)
* and the classy but unrewarded The Divine Seduction
(Team Queenstown - Yeh Ben!).
