How did everybody enjoy themeselves?  The beer was expensive and the catering was minimal but at least we got to watch some.... okay films.  Our film ended up with an "Honorable Mention", which out of 58 teams isn't bad but it isn't a prize either. 

Still, I could only bring myself to admit that 3 of them were more imaginative than ours.  I found that most of the top 10 weren't really good films that told stories they just had a special effect or some gimmick that the Challenge people wanted to show off.  

I thought the best film there was Twentyeighteighty's  The Legend of Clipper Desantos.  Fantastic job guys.  The imaginatively used all components of their challenge and had a brilliant cast across the board.  I only wish they had hinted more heavily about where the barber disappeared to, although I think I got it.  

Plywood Cutouts' 
Crossing Brooklyn Ferry.   Hilarious, great script and acting but I didn't really feel that it fit into the Sci-Fi / Fantasy genre. 

The Warriors' Growing Memories was very interesting, great location, but could have used some more work in the script department and the sound was a little sketchy at times.

...other than that I don't know what they did that we didn't.  We told a story -- beginning, middle and end which is more that I can say for most.
