  • 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
  • A review of The Infinite Flu
    by jgkatz on 01/18/2014
    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
  • A review of Naughty Girl
    by GrangeFilms on 01/18/2014
    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
  • A review of THE MAFIA TYPE
    by EugyBizzaro on 01/16/2014
    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
  • A review of The End Has No End
    by EugyBizzaro on 01/15/2014
    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.

    This is a heartfelt gritty social film. It is a little jewel. It presents a window into just how hard life is to the portraits of these individuals. Suffering does exist in our world but life does go on. This film presents the portraits with no comment on the state of their being and just presents things as they are. Life is hard but the portraits have compassion because one... read
  • A review of Dangerous Enough
    by Ant Jam on 01/14/2014
    In less assured and less talented hands, this confrontational piece could have gone a very different way. But Elmer is a poet, a satirist with impeccable prose who knows, above all else, how to make a point. The 'liberty' misdirection was well achieved, and the use of music to give the piece a strange rhythm, and images to illustrate the monologue, were very well realized... read

    There is somewhat of a depressing theme going on with this piece. I am not entirely sure if the connection is made between the film and the song as well as could be. This is essentially an esoteric song video. The singer has a nice voice but I did fail to see the song being played out in the video. Not bad just not great, these were pictures at an exhibition but no real story... read
  • A review of From Darkness, Light
    by GrangeFilms on 01/11/2014
    This very simple piece is quite difficult to review, however, I think you really have something here which could be expanded. It felt slightly like you had half a concept which was not fully fleshed out but you have created an interesting style. I am not voting this for competition merely because I believe you have incredible potential to your work and I'd very much like to... read

    I'm not entirely sure what the motive of this short film is, but having said that, I did find certain bits entertaining. The actor is great at delivering to the camera, he really strikes a connection with the audience. Apart from this, the story didn't really make much sense. I expected their to be a twist, perhaps the preacher used the money for drugs. It seems like the... read
  • A review of Can't See Me
    by Charlie Bury on 01/10/2014
    I always like short films that aren't obvious straight away. This film starts out as intriguing, there is something psychologically wrong with our protagonist. As his visions become less clear we begin to learn of his harm and this is brought about in an interesting way. The film is shot well and uses stark cuts to black to grab the viewers attention and switch between the... read
  • A review of Flip
    by melaniebooth on 01/07/2014
    I don't know if it's special effects or really a flip book, but either way- cool concept! Interesting, intriguing story of a cop who decides to call it quits. The story could have been a litttle more detailed but, hey it's a cartoon- I get it. The animation was really adorable and simple, which made it fun for the viewer to watch. Keep it up!
