It really was a good film, it really was. I suppose we lost because the topic that we selected as a theme didn't match the overall theme. Which was actually what I articulated, but was shot down, so I shrugged and moved on.
That pretty much became the theme of the entire production - conflict, shrug, move on, conflict, shrug, move on.
The other films had interesting messages, but poor delivery. Some had great delivery, but mixed messages. Our comments from the judges were that our passion for the message did not come through strongly enough... which was a fair enough comment.
That's our little participation placard on the left. Despite my general indifference to the entire project on the whole (due to different reasons, a lot of them formulated even before we started shooting), I feel annoyed for losing to a certain team though... their film was complete shite, they took a horrible attitude to the Q&A session, and they were part of an underground conglomerate group which produced and edited three of the entries: a pretty sneaky but brilliant strategy.
On the bright side, I was half an hour early to the judging, and managed to catch yet another lovely day beside the Singapore River... I swear I'm a tourist in my own country, but the river's really pretty and peaceful when you've got time to burn.
