I want to get this thread started before I run out of time.
The word ‘standards’ was used repeatedly by Nate in his comments on the forum.
I’ll begin by making a couple of statements and end with some questions.
First the statements.
Now the questions-

I’m not trying to be argumentative here but… If you know you’ve made a mistake, and you know it CAN be corrected, but do not out of lazyness the the work does not really represent the best of your abilitys now does it?
I assume “the two of you” is Hali and I?
would never be able to sleep until you fixed it- I sleep just fine. In fact, if I obsessed over each and every little thing- as the two of you do, I think- I would never finish a film.
I don’t really obsess over details (hali does, to an extent ), my films too contain flaws I was either to lazy, or too caugh up in my own rythym to go back and correct, nothing MAJOR of course, because I DO strive for a high standard of work.
I’m sorry if I implied your work was “not worthy” somehow, and that you should not be proud of it. It is plainly Obvious you work hard, and you SHOULD be proud of your own work, if you wern’t, why bother?
No, of course not, but you must understand, that part of the respect I, Hali, JamesFM, Buxton etc. recieve is based on the fact that we all strive.
of course not, I’ve outlined my complaints about your “best of show” above, and you are already aware of what induced my protests the first time we really butted heads about competition results. it is just an unfortunate coinsidence you were involved in both situations, it was not you directly I had protest with, but more about the way the competitions were run and organized, the first incident, with the “loophole” in the rules, the second with the method of judging.
my films are far from flawless. if I’d produced a flawless film I’d have no where left to go!
not “MY” higher standards neccicarily, no, but aiming for continual improvement should be encouraged “as a matter of course” yes. I don’t know many people who don’t want to improve themselves or their skills in their chosen hobby.
