I know that I would find it easier to judge them fairly if I could watch them all in one sitting, but I won't be able to resist downloading the first postings when they appear...


Hey Bill, a fair question. The answer also touches on why we don't want people to post them ahead of time. The purpose is to give everyone the same amount of exposure. Yes, some people can sit down and watch them all at once, but most people can't spare a couple hours in one shot during a work day. So, if there are 4 or 5 a day, it makes sure that every film is more likely to get watched. If they were all at once, some might get skipped or missed. If you want to watch them all at the same time, just wait until the last day.
Plus, it's fun getting to see 4 new short films a day for a week.
