  • A review of Haiku + 1
    by marley209 on 08/01/2014
    Okay, I have to admit, I laughed a little here. I think the concept is kind of clever (haiku+1) and there is an audience for this type of film. Can't say much about the production values, though, since there really weren't any. I've seen some of your films before and that could just be what you're aiming for (or just because this is an early one). But if you were to reshoot... read
  • A review of Comet (v2)
    by NickLacey on 07/31/2014
    Whilst the idea was interesting, and the visuals accompanying the voice over, engaging, it was unclear who the audience is. The educational element suggests youngsters, particularly in the intriguing angle taken on the topic. However, the suggestion that the table was a poem was not clearly explained implying it is for an older audience who would more readily consider the poetry... read
  • A review of A Perfect Cocktail
    by EugyBizzaro on 07/30/2014
    I enjoyed this film. The acting was good and the characters believable. I liked the flow of this movie. It had a double twist of the plot at the end...SURPRISE! The story was good and original. The cast and crew were great. April and Dan were natural. I would like to see this made into a full length feature. This short film was a cliffhanger. Excellent short film. TY E.B... read

    Hey, Max. Here are my thoughts and comments on 'Happy Bday, My Dear'. This was a cool little film. The plot is simple but intriguing; there are some subtle camera movements that work nicely; and the pacing is good. Realism is something that I think is really important in film, and you manage that well, in terms of actions and reactions, impetuses, and general scope. I... read
  • A review of Sunset
    by max sappa on 07/26/2014
    OK, this film is a homage to the glorious 20's and yet this is the new century so where are the interesting characters, plots, feelings gone? Two perfect strangers meet during the sunset and without even a vaguely interesting conversation nor believable chemistry just walk off together... now in love???? Only positive aspects are the cinematography and the music..... read
  • A review of Beach House
    by max sappa on 07/26/2014
    I love (yes, love) how you have started the movie... the montage at the beginning and the one in the middle (where the characters get wasted) are absolutely great! And I do appreciate that you wanted to make a movie (I believe) with the 'camp-zero budget-exploitation-of-the-time'... teenagers going to haunted house and get killed... and yet, well... the toilet with a printed... read
  • A review of The Infinite Flu
    by JohnnyCoffeen on 07/23/2014
    This is by far the best film I've seen on this website. With that said, I feel its greatest weakness is the acting -- actually more so with the voice actor on the other line of the phone. I feel like if this were to be redone, maybe rethinking the dialogue a little bit more wouldn't hurt -- possibly that would help the acting if it were to be handled better. But conceptually,... read
  • A review of SAND BANK
    by Nidhi on 07/20/2014
    I liked your idea and it's execution. Your characters were able to generate realistic tension that we see in couples or experience the same in our relationships. The fact that he is a writer added more to the drama! Videography and edit could have been better. On the whole, I enjoyed your film! Good storytelling!
  • A review of Scene from Macbeth
    by Nidhi on 07/20/2014
    I like the lead actor and the setting. Also it's always commendable to interpret a classic story. Sadly I couldn't understand it as the audio was really bad and the video quality was also poor. The edit of having the actor inserted from time to time only distracted. If possible, please add subtitles and also have a good dark background score. Good Luck.
  • A review of A Very Important Call
    by InPost on 07/20/2014
    This is a great little short. Its fairly predictable from the start, but the funny acting and competent camera work make it entertaining. It does drag out a little in the middle when it's obvious what is going to happen. But the character keeps it light. Overall a great effort
  • A review of Awks
    by curtdarwin on 07/15/2014
    There's not much to say because this isn't really a short. I chuckled, it was a little funny but there isn't anything to this. I don't think Triggerstreet should allow one minute shorts to be reviewed. You probably have some talent and should try to write a short that has a good Premise with three acts included. Better luck on the next one.
  • A review of The Carved Pumpkin
    by bengutteridge on 07/14/2014
    Ok so this is what it's all about. This film might essentially be someone mucking around with a pumpkin and filming it be oh what great mucking around it is.. there are a lot of great ideas in here, moments of comedy, tension, yes I realise that it is what it is but I remember this guy from another review i did ages ago and this guy has real talent and here again it shows (allbeit... read
  • A review of Beach House
    by bengutteridge on 07/14/2014
    I know a lot of people like these kind of ironic films but personally they leave me cold. I'm sure the people that made it had a lot of fun making it and it is kind of fun to watch i guess but really while It's meant to be ironically bad - for me it really just seems bad.. I'm sure these guys could come up with something more original if they tried.
  • A review of Clean Before Loading
    by Studio2grl on 07/14/2014
    "Clean before Loading" is a cute idea. Shorts need to be really funny, insightful, or just sort of clever. I'd say you covered the last two pretty well. I love the set up with your male protagonist alone in the laundry mat. Some nice shots and we all get that the couple in the corner make him uncomfortable. It was a nice touch to bring them back at the end for the bookend... read
  • A review of Any Legacy
    by Studio2grl on 07/13/2014
    Interesting concept of an old man's lonely last days told through vignettes and flashbacks with voice over. It feels like an experimental short. I think the strong POV shots and inserts work to make it a richer piece. However, it doesn't quite cut together as cohesively as it could. A lot of shots linger too long and with the narrative it just feels a bit slow and unmotivated... read
