I spent 3 days competing in a short film challenge, 1 day filming. Please rip it to shreds.

More specifically, I'd love to know your thoughts on how to improve things when working with an impossibly tight schedule, needless to say this shouldn't be taken as a representation of my best work, but please be as constructively critical as you can, or maybe you want to shower me in complements, that works too!

From the YouTube video description:
we spent an evening planning and then shot the entire thing the next day in 7 different locations, so we had about an hour to shoot each segment.

While we could have written a good, moving, meaningful piece of drama we instead chose to see how much we could cram into one day:
We had to work out how to fill bags with explosive gas, safely slam me into a table, safely smash a stool over David's back, film a 50ft jump and then act wide awake at 3AM to film the discussion that ties everything together.
The next day was editing, sound design, colour grading, a couple more shots and then writing and recording the music while in the car on the way to submit it half an hour later.

Next step should be to add lighting to the indoor shots, you need light not only to overcome noise but to add "depth" to your shots.
