We get a look at a few teams efforts, with more tension as the 24-hour deadline nears and some teams discover that they have poor footage for the edit work. Three full clips are shown - the time-stopper one was pretty cool with the special effects of the two main characters convincingly moving around in a time-stopped world.
Twelve went home, 24 remain. Among those cut were prima donna directors who couldn't work with their teammates, or directors who didn't contribute much at all.
Now, coming into next episode, each of the remaining 24 have one hour to direct a set, complete with script, equipment and actors already in place. In a preview of next week, one lady spends half an hour fretting around without a single shot - not a good start for her when every minute counts.
One theme for this series seems to be time management with a lot more pressure than we've seen in other shows like The Apprentice. Time pressure is weeding out the indecisive very quickly, while judging is going to be based on quality - and soon, viewer voting.
Foo dogs by tribe.
