Entry by Wellington team 'heads I win, tails you lose' for the Rialto Channel 48Hours Furious Filmmaking Competition 2013.
Unfortunately, a myriad of technical and logistical issues meant that the whole thing had to be ADR'd (only one line of dialogue is actually from from actual footage) and also because of these issues it means that The World is ineligible as it wasn't finished until after the deadline. However, team 'heads I win, tails you lose' worked fantastically over the weekend and I am extremely proud of them all and I hope that they all had great fun. Thanks for an amazing experience you guys!
Here is our finished film regardless - we hope you enjoy.
