Heat Observations/Trends/Drinking game?

in reply to fakenews:

In regards to "taking risks" it was an interesting year as we set ourselves risky challenges inside the team (note: risk is relative - we weren't leaning off buildings or climbing mountains or re-inventing filmmaking but we were outside comfort zones!). So yeah, we kinda did do that although it may not be obvious to the audience. Some paid off, some didn't - but that's risk!

We put new people into new roles, had new people on the team, challenged ourselves to do more than one location, and do more than locked off shots. And did Ultra. And adrenalin ran higher because of it - 6mins and 20secs before deadline was the tightest we've been for a while!

Ultra teams: What did you think?

Loved it. Initially thought it would be relatively straight forward, but it so wasn't and we were seriously challenged. Not least because we had set ourselves goals within the team, and we had new people trying new roles. So much fun!! I felt the danger this year!

Grand Final Chat

As far as discussion of films - I agree with most of what has been said. But wanted to say how much I enjoyed the slick and fast production of the Finals evening overall. Entertaining and well presented!

Only quibble would be that Best Editing and Best Script deserved a walk to the stage to receive recognition. I wouldn't have minded another 10 mins on the length of the night, and I also think that teams should be encouraged to 'say a few words' ... maybe they had been scared off? It's an Awards night after all, and I love hearing their tales and them thank their mums and agents.
