we had 2 balls. One was shamelessly thrown into the shot, quite literally. but the other ball hopefully showed the lonely nature of the character and was worked in as a game he ritually plays.
But I have to say Im not looking for creative use of the ball, it's just an element for the 'rules' - outside of this fest it means nothing. Whether you tie it in or not would have no bearing on another film festival or their appreciation of your film.
what did I learn? If shooting Red, double your production time. I learnt I prefer premiere over FCP and to get some stops on the end of your tracks (almost cost me a Red camera!). I also realised that there's no point in me storyboarding because I cannot make head nor tail of what I have drawn a day later.
Oh and I learnt that working with real actors is generally a good thing!

Ok I didnt submit anything but I did watch every one, with headphones.
What I learnt is that when I make a movie I'll set the audio level so that it matches intro logo all the way through so that the viewer doesnt have to keep adjustingf their headphones to avoid total silance or ear rupturing loudness.

From watching everything. I learned that people overlook sound design more than anything else. Audio levels all over the charts. Poorly synced sound effects. Poorly mixed tracks. There are exceptions. But sound design overall seems to be overlooked."I reject your reality and substitute my own"

Interlaced video doesnt look so good on a computer monitor.

I've learned that I still get a little too pasionate about things at times.
And that maybe I need to get out of the house a little more than I do.
Note to self: Go fishing. Now.

I learned was that if I can't get the proper sound equipment and people, go MOS.
