We lost. The reason is simple. We're not good enough. You can watch the winners' entries ONE from UTAR and Cermin Mata Atuk from UITM here.
I think it's amazing that I don't feel as depressed as I thought I would be. I think it was because I learnt so much from making Projek Merdeka Adik that the experience itself is a God-sent reward. I had so much fun making and shooting it that I think it offsets the dread feeling one would feel after losing.
So it's pretty simple. We lost because our PSA is not good enough. It's not 1Malaysia enough. It's qualities and message is not up to par with the winner ONE and second prize winner Cermin Mata Atuk.
I need to learn a whole lot more before I can make better commercial videos than them. I will study a lot harder and be exposed to more new things so I can be better than them. I will be better. I need to be better.
At least now I know how bad our PSA is compared to the winners' works. Baru boleh tahu mana langit mana bumi.
