Since: Mar 2014
I thought the comp went really well this year, apart from the initial short lead time into the dates. I agree though that late/short notice is much better than not at all, and appreciate that it's hard to find sponsors etc. so thanks to the team for their effort in keeping it going.
I liked the elements, and I liked the variety this year. Last year was great as it was open, but puddle, door slam, and shadow all kind of just seemed like props/things to include. This year there was a bit more variety and I loved the return of the technical element (except this year I did animation so couldn't even use my drone that's been waiting in the cupboard for like 5 years for exactly this moment, lol).
I signed up for Ultra at the last minute after deciding 'why not', and I enjoyed the challenge. They were very interesting choices, and having 2 things was also interesting. It was hard to try to center my planning around the elements given that with the genre included it was basically 7 requirements, but I think it helped me to narrow down some ideas. I really LOVED the wheel of ultra, especially that little dig with "prequel" haha.
Launch was good in Taranaki, hand-in is always a little quiet so would love in future to make hand-in involve like some pizza and drinks or something between 6-7:30pm so people are encouraged to hang around for a little while and socialise, cheer on those who arrive, console those who just miss out etc. before they go home to sleep.
Really enjoyed this year and looking forward to seeing the films!
