I like the required elements, though I actually like having a line of dialogue as a requirement. I like the variety of genres too. I didn't mind shooting in winter time, but the short lead time to the competition was annoying. I understand that there were a lot of things that came into play to why the date announcement was so late, but wish that it was for a later shoot date instead of so close to the announcement. It would be nice if the competition runs at the same time every year (though perhaps narrow it down to which week in the month it would be).
It has been quite a different vibe for me this year (in a good way), our team wanted a chilled and fun weekend, and we did exactly that. I wasn't frenzied from the lack of sleep on Sunday, and I was fully functioning on Monday, which was amazing.
