Bay Area 48HFP Colleague Awards Results

The 48 Hour Film Project season for 2012 in San Francisco kicked off with the Colleague Awards.

In this very special event,  eight filmmakers who’ve created multiple award winning films in past years were invited to submit their favorite competition film from the past. Of the eight films, seven qualified for awards by submitting their film ready for screening, and by providing a judge from their team to be at the screening to complete a ballot.

The qualifying films seen at the screening event on Friday, Jan 27th were (in alphabetical order):

  • a Priori – EyeQ Films
  • How the Spot Was Won – Chinese Takeout
  • Roomies – burntwire.tv
  • Sincerity – Transvideo Studio
  • Spindrift – Tumult Productions
  • Stagecoach in the Sky – Fogbelt 2880
  • Sur Mesure – It Donned On Me

The films were seen by an audience with the filmmakers in attendance, and the judge from each team was instructed to complete a ballot that assigned quantitative ratings in several categories. The categories for which ratings were collected were:

  • Overall Excellence
  • Cinematography
  • Editing
  • Writing
  • Score/Music
  • Production Design
  • Sound Design
  • Post Production Magic
  • Creativity

Most everyone agreed that it’s nearly impossible to choose between the films in the top tier — but we set out to create awards, so some judgement calls had to be made.  Here are the finalists and the awards in each category.
