Mmk, now that Im recovered from the week...
I thought the contest went really well. Lots of really good vids [Despite all the problems, I did enjoy 'that one vid'...dont judge me
], looking forward to some of those becoming publicly available. And I dont even expect any Deathnote Rhapsody-like drama this year either, which is always a plus. See, people? Maybe the jedges are less fail than you think :p
My only complaints didnt really have to do with the contest itself. There was the fact that there didn't seem to be any warning about not being able to bring bags into the theater - my group had to run back to the car to drop stuff off and then come back - but Im not sure if thats just a Nokia thing or what.
Also, I liked the preshow vids [15 Minute Phonecall
] but... Havent we been seeing Skittles and Magic Pad like, every year now? Dont get me wrong - they're great vids and Im pretty sure they are both winners from previous years...but I dunno. If there need to be fan-favorites every year, could they be alternated every other year or something? This is major personal preference of course, but just wanted to mention it.
On a random note, the Drama entries seemed to be a bit darker this year for the most part ['Under There' and 'Princess of the Red Rose' in especially], and if I remember correctly, drama was pretty light last year?
I hope DP is getting some good rest now, he very much deserves it!
