    I love music and I believe that the soundtrack in this music video is nice and have this very 'Dylan' quality to it. However, I am not a big fan of lazy filmmaking. Driving around and showing some CLOSED signs a bit of driving and a band singing for a few minutes doesn't seem like a lot of work - and it isn't. Also, because there are not 'visual' surprises after the first... read

    The film starts well. It's fun up to the point where people look back at the lead character in the streets because of the cut on his neck. You have good editing. Then it goes in a different direction and becomes pretentious. The poem thing is unnecessary and boring. It's too bad because the beginning is really entertaining. You could have better production values. Selecting... read

    Basically a low budget music video for an obscure band and an even more obscure song. Not quite sure what I can say other than, I really don't like this type of music. If I could offer anything, I would say, try to tell a story that is the subtext to the song. And maybe some camera work.

    There really isn't a clear narrative to speak of, which is fine. However, the visuals that are presented are a bit too repetitious without any added information being given to the audience. The cinematography overall is ok, but nothing too special. It does add to the general vibe, but I feel it could have been pushed further. Lastly, the sound-scape does not feel fully realized... read

    I'm genuinely not sure if this is supposed to be a comedy or not. Either way, the production value is one step above a youtube video. I've seen a lot of short films and this is the only one that actually give thanks to theres that. If this 'film' isn't an attempt at comedy there is little I could say to keep it constructive. If it is a comedy, please write some... read

    O.M.G., after being a boss for years, I have heard countless excuses for employees not showing up for work. This one takes the CAKE. I loved smug and tongue in cheek. Chris Heard plays a great dead guy. A truly fun performance as a dead guy. Hey, it is valid work. Kudos to the crew, this was a fun one to watch. TY E.B.

    Oh what a wonderful idea. I have always loved Hopper for his deliberate solid blocking and somber color. Every painting is a story with some mystery behind every figure. Hopper is a great American Artist. The narration of this film is paced and stoic as this film moves oh so quietly. The film has a darkness that is oh so Hopper. Tongue in cheek, very Dick Tracy. There is only... read

    The soundtrack with the animation reminded me of Jan Švankmajer's work. Kind of unsettling in a good way. Its a fun video, but I think you could probably cut about a minute from the length. Overall though, everything was done with a competent hand and a realized vision. I also enjoyed the title animation.

    This short dark film had a fine pace. I had no idea what was going to happen and holy cow did I get dealt a nightmare of a surprise. Yeaks! It is a pretty evil movie for being so short. about a movie being dark....this one is haunting. I loved it because it is truly creepy. I would scram right out the nearest door too!!!!!! Good acting, sets and direction were... read

    I wrote some random notes as I was watching, so if they're not clear let me know. I would change the title typeface. This is a super small thing overall, but the tone didn't match the style. The performance from the actors are not super great, but I think if you tighten up the editing you can bring out the good parts a lot more. Play with it a bunch and see if you remove some... read

    Elmer, Elmer, Elmer....your films are all over the place and that is why, I like your style. This short film threw me for a loop because through the photos of your Mother you compared them to film of the time. For being a farm girl your Mother was quite progressive in her actions. She was confident and not scared of hard work at all. Elmer you are a chip off the old block... read

    Everything in this short film is well executed, but I do have a few thoughts. First, the film felt a bit claustrophobic. I can't really say whether or not thats a good thing or bad thing, but I think its mostly caused by a lack of wide establishing shots. The only other thing that felt a bit off was the voice over. The whole film is pretty silent so when that voiceover comes... read

    It is never an easy matter - to be reviewing a work of a fellow filmmaker, especially when one is left perplexed, and not in a good way. So, I will gladly mention the one aspect I found plausible and promising - the relatively organic and unforced presence of the actor playing the Apprentice (David Monstrola). As much as I was annoyed by the inexplicable, unmotivated multiple... read

    This was pretty good. I liked the take and twist on an everyday event that we all can relate to. Short, simple and a nice little twist. One thing that almost lost me is that you just have Bob sitting down and contemplating. It's almost too subdued. Seeing that he has called in sick a few times I would have him up and pacing or something. I think you could have squeezed... read
