  • A review of ARTIFACT
    by stone9000 on 01/26/2014
    I was very impressed with the production value of this short, nice camera work and I can tell you guys put in some good work on the set. Also enjoyed the cgi. However the story was not very compelling and the acting was fairly weak, although the lead guy wasn't bad. Would really like to see what you guys can do with a little better story line and some real dialogue.

    Nice use of a building to make your little short. The production was good, but the story ending was predicable. I've always wondered if these none talking films are part of film school courses, to basically teach the film maker/writer to show the story rather then tell. Anyway, I would have had him hand off the knowledge to the lab, put it into production at a factory, and... read
  • A review of Madman Tape 3
    by magi hart on 01/22/2014
    THEME: A woman is killed, is Jack responsible or his inner demon, Jake? I thought I knew- obviously Jack killed her, he was physically present, acting out. BUT you whammy me with- smug JAKE sitting there in the end. So I'm full of questions. Nice job. CONFLICT: Built into the story, tension builds as we get a flashback of the park killing. PREMISE: ? I'm not sure. Who... read

    I really don't get why the zombie craze. The whole topic leaves me "cold". BUT- OH MY LORD!!!! I LOVE THIS SHORT!!! FRESH, CLEAN, CREATIVE, CLEVER, FUNNY!!!!! I rarely say this! You hooked me at the Logline: Zombie's hate Fords. LOL The black and white contributes to the build up, the tension. The zombie's are even 'cute'- I love the chewing on a FORD plate. You folks... read

    Oh, Elmer, Elmer, Elmer...because I love you so much, I really don't want to review this work honestly. My first issue: YOU'RE NOT SINGING. My second issue: YOU'RE NOT RECITING YOUR POETRY. My third issue? What's the story, guy? Old Man: A great character to build a story around. Wasted: Just another wasted dude. Tension: I suppose losing an old dinner to the cat. And... read
  • A review of The Infinite Flu
    by magi hart on 01/22/2014
    First Impression: I really love the sound track. It gives an other worldly sense lending to the idea of The Infinite Flu and finally Death. Act I: The Protagonist does an excellant job of demonstrating his inner turmoil, his struggle- in not wanting to go to work. Facial expressions are awesome in showing this with limited movement. Act II: The Decision- he calls in sick,... read

    PERSONAL IMPRESSION: The folks that created this work are talented. The scenes are clear, points are quickly made, it's attractive to watch, the sound track is right on. It's a darn shame that such professional folk worked on a boring topic. CONCLUSION: Stretch your imaginations, FLY out of the box! You have GADS of talent!!! FIND SOME WRITERS THAT ROCK! CONFLICT: Repetitive,... read
  • A review of Lament
    by magi hart on 01/21/2014
    THEME: Grief, Loss is unbearable. CONFLICT: Initially the young man holds onto fond memories. Then there appears to be an argument which leads to her getting hit by a car, resulting in his anguish and Guilt? It appears that his pain is self directed re. guilt rather from loss. In this I'm confused as to the writer's intent. TENSION DRIVEN/ACTION: The use of black and white... read
  • A review of Like a Tattoo
    by brokenarrow on 01/21/2014
    Wow, that was an emotional, entertaining piece of work. Of all the reasons for the main character to be waiting to kill, beat up the man, I'd never have guessed the truth behind the torment. Shots with the mirrors were done well, and as a matter of fact, all was done well. The spaced out look of the young man walking by was spooky, as if he had lost his soul. What was more... read

    This short was beautifully shot. I would have liked to see some of the opening shots going in and out of focus to add some je ne sais quoi. I'm not crazy about the audio's abrupt termination after the Title is shown. With each shot being locked down, I was briefly removed from the feel of the film when there was a camera shake after the subject first looked at the phone. Also,... read

    When it started I thought it looked very interesting and could be quite enjoyable. OH MY GOD! When he started singing that rhythm I thought OK maybe this will expand. It just kept going and going and going. As much as I appreciate the look of the video the content was not up to standard. Keep making films but not like this one.
  • A review of LA/NY
    by EugyBizzaro on 01/16/2014
    A campy bashing of L.A. and New York, what's new? I was born in New York and hey, we are used to it. New York humor is not the same as the rest of the country and L.A. also, has its plastic palm tree surfing snobbery that probably comes from the pollution in the air. Anyway, I thought this contrasting collage of visuals was campy kewl. I love L.A. and New York! This film is... read

    What's not to like? I really loved this little Mafia Movie. It was so to tongue-in-cheek. The Goombas were fun. It was really entertaining. The acting was good. I liked the flow. What can I say I am still wearing black and in morning for Tony Soprano! The Best!!!! Sincerely, E.B.
  • A review of Pilgrim
    by EugyBizzaro on 01/15/2014
    The pilgrim costume needed to be dipped in tea and aged along with the doll, they looked too new. Antique it! The crosses needed to be made with the loving care of a loving Father and Husband, not simply sticks lashed together. They looked uncaring and thrown together. The other props were good. Perhaps, a filter to give aging to set a tone to the movie. These props are important... read

    Oh what lives we lead, rushing to this and that! If only we could relax and calm down. The boyfriend has turned a simple task into an utter nightmare. Modern life can be just that way, we complicate life by rushing through it and what we get is a mess. Modern and funny. Kafka! Sincerely, E.B.
