    I liked the photography and the edit. The frame rate of this film was not right. Became jarring to see after a while. Don't know if that is the effect you wanted to keep. Acting, mediocre, so was the production quality. The surprise element doesn't really take you by surprise. Good Luck!

    There is obviously a lot of reference to history. I liked how you mixed a lot of media together and also the classic background score. But what was this film trying to covey, beats me! Please take care to avoid shadows next time you film. Production quality and lighting are ordinary. Inserts are good.

    Loved it! You can definitely convert this idea into a feature! The camera n edit is exceptional. The only thing that didn't impress me was the background score. Computer graphics are ordinary but effectively take the story forward! I wish you get a big budget to make this film as a feature. Good luck!

    Not sure what to make of this piece. I wish there was more to this story. Sadly it's filled with bad acting and poor writing. Nothing about this was particularly interesting as all this appeared to be was a couple arguing and stating exactly how they feel. No subtext at all. Maybe this is a small piece of a bigger picture and everything is out of context, but I was left wondering... read
  • A review of Cruzin'
    by Kingofclubs on 06/08/2014
    Cruzin' is humming all the way to Reno for me. I've burst into tears several times now, watching this short movie. I can personally identify with this character study piece. I am not a music man. I am the visual king. I look for music, the perfect match of soul and harmonics and then perform digital tapestries. I pretend i have a live audience. For me, thats how I wish... read
  • A review of Comet (v2)

    No big revelations here with the scientific theory. I've heard this way back in the 80's with Cosmos so I'm trying to figure out what is the point of the short film? I guess I'm not getting the revelation, or is it theme, of the point that a table can be a poem. I don't mind found footage flicks but the quality of this one's footage was pretty distracting. Looked like... read

    This is a curious piece. While the quality of the film feels higher than a beginner's attempt, things just feel awkward and a lot of that comes from the dialogue and character motivations. It's not quite clear who these characters are. Where they friends? Was she a hitchhiker? Once Abbey gets in the car, we are off into the most unusual conversation between two people... read
  • A review of Zero
    by neverquitt on 06/07/2014
    Powerful story. Love that there was no dialogue - made it more visceral. Tragic events can strengthen the bond between strangers and that's wonderfully portrayed in your film. It especially worked because you chose to show that connection between two different races, classes, and genders. I thought some profile shots were very haunting - in a good way. But there were a too... read
  • A review of The Infinite Flu
    by amibrown on 06/07/2014
    I really loved your film, The Infinite Flu. The ape imagery in the beginning was cool and interesting lead in to the film. The very abrupt cut of the music was a little distracting - and I would have liked a fade out better I think. The main character's acting was pretty good. The phone call was great. It was amusing and funny. I think the little twist there at the end... read
  • A review of The Policemans Story
    by InPost on 06/06/2014
    Fantastic! I don't think that there is much more to say about this project other than that. It was produced at the professional level with excellent work by all involved. I quickly forgot that this was a TS assignment and just enjoyed the story. I assume it is meant for consideration.

    Creepy and cool. I love the concept and the tone. If this was turned into a trailer for a feature then you'd have a fantastic indie horror film that could be satirical and gleefully horrific; everything a solid horror movie needs. I think you did an excellent job with setting up a crazy world and this is the start of a very cool idea for a feature. I hope you keep going... read
  • A review of Book of James
    by linusonline on 06/06/2014
    I enjoyed the back and forth between the two boys, but how is this a comedy? This feels like more of a clip from a larger piece than a short film in of itself. Book of James is a good start to a character introduction and I'd love to see more of these two as they interact and philosophize over religion. It's a nice touch to see a side of an alter boy who is supposed to be... read

    The concept for this is original and interesting. I liked the guy coming over to rob a woman who is about to kill herself. It's a neat little moment, but why does he stay? Seems like he would take the money and run. Does he do enough to really get her to jump? She seems so shocked by his careless demeanor that she doesn't kill herself, why? I think the characters motivations... read
  • A review of It's Just A Movie
    by linusonline on 06/06/2014
    This really made me nostalgic for those days in the 80's and the birth of digital technology. This was a time where violence in film and media was a very topical issue, but that was thirty years ago. This piece while good, feels dated. I feel what is lacking from this piece is a perspective from today's viewing audience. What is their impression of violence and censorship?... read

    You've done exactly what I've been pulling out my hair to do. It's very challenging to get to the point and to do it in a stylistically engaging way. Respect! You didn't waste any time with unnecessary shots, while the shots you did use were visually appetizing. The editing complimented the rhythm of what was happening. The actor was funny without trying to be - that's refreshing!... read
