I usually wear my watch, but I forgot to wear it tonight for some reason. I ran tech for the Vidiocy short film contest tonight, and as I was leaving, everyone was thanking me for sticking it out until the end (which I had to do to take my equipment). I wasn't sure why until I got in the car and saw the clock there. It was 2:30 am!
My advice to the next round of Vidiocy contestants is to take the ten minute limit as a extreme limit, not as a goal. Thanks.
