Overall I am extremely happy with how the seminar ran! I think we got some great information out of our guests and the audience was happy with the information they got about the documentary industry.
I think the whole concept of Fear and Loathing worked really well and made a great aesthetic and vibe to the seminar. I was a tiny bit disappointed with the turn out, as there were not very many people there, it seems as though once a group has run their seminar they do not both coming to the seminars anymore. This is a shame for them as they missed out on an extremely interesting seminar.
One thing that we should have figured out more was the questions from the audience. While the first few were great, the last couple that came in caused my timing of the questions to be slightly messed up causing me to run slightly overtime and not being able to ask a few of the questions I really wanted to. For example the question Shelly asked right at the end, meant that I did not have time to ask my final question, which was, exactly the same as the question she asked. I think this made us look like we had not included questions about the industry and caused us to look quite unorganized, whereas the timing and questions were actually planned extremely well.
I think that our group ended up working really well together and I am extremely happy to have been group leader for the seminar. While at times it was hard to bring everyone together, I think I did a good job of keeping everyone on track and bringing together the seminar. I think the plan and questions I made worked well and the communication I had between the steering committee and the group was clear and well done. All in all I think I was a vital group member and did more than my fair share of work.
In the end I feel as though I played a vital role in making sure the group made stayed on track and got everything done, as it needed to be.
I am really happy that the seminar went well and now just have to make sure that everyone does their part in getting the paperwork for the steering committee done by next week.
