  • A review of SONNET XIV
    by dedekmraz on 03/20/2014
    Loved this short. The cinematography is excellent. The scenery, amazing colors and setting, It all sets the tone of the short nicely. Actress does a nice job, narrating the poem convicingly. Enjoyed the last shot, zooming in the actress just finishing the last words of the poem. And one can never miss doing one of Shakespeare's work. Good work, keep it up!
  • A review of Toni

    Title of film Toni By Innpost What is it about? The Guy Toni has been replaced by a girl tough, the drugs and other things are still available What is the wow or hook to get us to watch? The potty mouth girl jump-starts the film with a bad-guy routine. She gets softer at times and keeps the viewer on his toes. Storyline: did it make its point? Yes. Transparency: Did... read

    Title if film: finding the words By Mister T What is it about? What is the wow or hook to get us to watch? No hook or wow and the introduction is slow paced. A little livelier introduction is in order. Storyline: did it make its point? Yes and very well. Transparency: Did I see the end coming? No it drug its heels until the three words at the end. MECHANICS: Lighting;... read
  • A review of The Policemans Story

    Great short! Nice buildup to the climax, very intense throughout. On the positive side: - Cinematography. Really well done. The lighting was great. Dark to set the tone of the film, but jet the actor was well lid, so the viewer can see his facial expressions. Also enjoyed the switch to handheld to add anxiety and build the tension up. - Good execution and portrayal of the... read
  • A review of A Very Important Call
    by dedekmraz on 03/19/2014
    On the plus side: - Cinematography. It is energetic and diverse enough to carry us seamlessly through the film, considering the tough task of only having one scene and one actor. Goes with the emotions and messages of the scenes, changes tempo on right times to demand the viewer's attention. Maybe just little too much cutting, but that's just my personal taste. - Good idea... read

    Nothing much to say apart from: Great Work! I really liked this short on many levels. The parody of 'Night of the Living Dead' has been done to death (yes to death ah, ah, ah)but here works very well, the make up is very good, the acting is convincing (and the last zombie driver is hilarious)and overall it is a very polished effort. But eventually is the writing that counts... read

    A really cool introspective into the mind of the corporate drone. I loved the style and the professional quality. I just hope I don't rewatch it too much cause it'll make me rethink my day job. It made me fondly remember my days in New York. Please keep posting more work. I dig your style. I'd love to see what else you could do with a great character that you could clearly... read
  • A review of The Carved Pumpkin
    by linusonline on 03/19/2014
    I'm not quite sure what the intent of this was other than to showcase some really fun editing tricks. The animation gimmick was really done well. I enjoyed how clean and seamless it felt. Excellent job! There wasn't really a narrative happening here which really could've added a new layer to the piece. Right now it feels very static at times and only highlights the animation... read
  • A review of Don't Say Nothing
    by jaspergoodheart on 03/19/2014
    The Good: - Good choice of lead actor. He has a spot-on drawl that leads itself well to the bored schlub of a character in a dead-end job. - Good punchline. The Bad: - Poor audio quality. The over the phone dialogue is not great, even at full volume and especially when the lead character makes an appearance to shoot the other guy. - It can be easily re-recorded, though. -... read
  • A review of Trap Door Action
    by EugyBizzaro on 03/19/2014
    Cute little film but it could have really been so much more. It could have been A.G. It just had no surprises, no SHABAMMMMMM. It could have presented a parallel universe, say the fashions on the street. Just a suggestion. This film needs to take one more step...to reach a higher level. One can have the best camera in the world but seeing with the camera is another thing! This... read
  • A review of LOVE (re)CYCLE
    by EugyBizzaro on 03/19/2014
    O.M.G, Gavin is stuck in a robotic cycle. Caught in a loop, caught in a loop. This is a seamless short film. The filming is perfect, the acting seamless,the mood is mundane and the timing is oh so glum!!!!!! This film is sad and dark. It was very Alfred Hitchcocky, a very dry paced tongue in cheek film. I loved it! Not every film has to take place in ", Mr. Rogers Neighborhood!"... read
  • A review of Madman Tape 3
    by AnneAlexanderSieder on 03/19/2014
    Personally, I like films that are a bit ambiguous and let the viewer come up with answers on their own however, what was missing for me was Jack's journey - his emotional arc. He basically started and ended in the same place, then was replaced by Jake who presumably would start the process all over again into infinity. I would have like to see a greater range of emotions... read

    Let's start with the positive... This short is competently shot, directed, edited and the song during the title is great too... However, my problem was mostly with... and here we go with the negative... Well, the acting was very inconsistent... the main character is not sufficiently concerned and the whole thing feels a bit relaxed... there is not real conflict there and... read

    Not quite sure what to make of this because I'm not familiar with this type of film. It seems more like footage for a commercial than a narrative but I'll give it a try nonetheless. It's edited well and the camera, while at times feels a little washed out, does do a good job of highlighting the clothing and the models. The style of shooting reminds me of house of style from... read

    Title of film: trapdoor action By Louise Peacock . Mechanics:: Lighting: Room light, which was adequate. Staging: the costumes were changed and that was the film. Several of the costumes mad the heavy makeup girl look really dumpy. The effect was poor clothes not some clothes are good some not. Special effects:.
