I always loved to watch Project Runaway, it's such an amazing show. And when the first season of the Project Org happened, I couldn't join but I saw the awesome videos coming from it. So when I joined this one, I never expected to pass the 3rd Round. Actually, that was my goal and after that it was always a surprise and unexpected. That was also one of the reasons I joined The Quickening at the same time too, because I never thought they would collide.
Anyway, not only this was a personal challenge and a great experience, I also had the chance of talking with new people. And also editors that you see me fangirl every time they post a new video. To get to know them a bit, it's amazing. I also learned so many things and that's one of the reasons why I didn't upload some of the videos, because I do want to make some changes.
I thought that after this I would have a break from editing but it's actually hard! There's just so many ideas and it's also really hard to suddenly stop (sort of weird lol). If only my computer was fine, I would slowly start editing again but now it's even getting worst than the last few days of POE. I also want to thank Code for giving us all 3 more time for this round. We all this ideas and each one of us with a problem. I think paco should have an extra reward for editing his video in a record time. For the last 2 rounds, I think, he managed to do 2 amazing videos each week, so yeah all the awards to paco!
And also special thanks to Shin for trying to help me with my computer, maybe in the near future you can teleport yourself here and do your magic
All of this to say that this wasn't just an ordinary contest. I don't think most of people know this but I have to say it. The fair play among the contestants was amazing. We shared betas, opinions, we encouraged each other, we did all nights on the chat while editing. So it was really like a Project Runaway where they're all together in a room? The only difference is that, no one was recording anything
(except Summer singing ponponpon - is that the name??) So ya, I wasn't expecting that and that's why this was way more awesome than I thought. It was always sad to see someone get eliminated, specially in the end where all the videos were great.
I also need to thank everyone who cheered for me, it was awesome and really (I mean really!) I wasn't expecting so much support!
I have just one little complain. I'll only say it because I know this will help Code in the future and he knows how to take criticism!
The themes were great and I liked them, but I felt that Round 1 and Round 2 complemented each other a bit too much, so I think one of those themes could have been saved for another season or something. Round 3 was a great theme, but allowing covers was a bit of a let down, not for us as contestants but for the public. I mean it's the 80's!!! Best music ever! Round 4 was my favorite lol I think I turned a bit more evil with that round and the videos were awesome! Now my other complain: the last two rounds. Again it's the same as the first rounds, they're both rounds where we need to "recreate" something. And although I had a lot of fun doing Round 5, for this last round it was kinda "meh" lol probably because we were expecting something big and totally impossible to do
Anyway Code, please go on and keep these contests coming! Despite of some weeks that were like... work, edit, sleep, work, edit, sleep, work, edit, edit, work, edit, puff dead sleep....
