    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 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
  • 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 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 View From My Window
    by JeffreyGonell on 08/02/2014
    The window is his eyes, and what he sees through the window is his perception of the world. Therefore, a brick wall, is really a crazy, but not so intense, fight scene. Another window, two lovers who aren't really lovers - we don't know. Another wall, an illusion of himself:"This is my world." His perception is disarrayed by his imagination, or not.

    So, this film is a bit odd. Which is fine. Odd is good. However it seems to lack any sort of narrative. Our main character is telling us that we need to think big and make our own definitions and I don't know why. Also, the effects used in this are pretty low rate and out of place with the music and stock footage. The editing is done tastefully, I must say. Though I thought... read
  • A review of Celebration
    by sangstercollins on 08/03/2014
    Celebration started a little awkward, a little slow... but really surprised me in the end. I was pleased with how about a quarter of the way through the cinematography and shot composition improved. Now, this could have been a deliberate choice by the writer and / or DP to shoot the start of the film very on-the-nose like the dialogue is, but when the dialogue loosens and is... read
  • A review of Scene from Macbeth
    by VonNiederauer on 08/04/2014
    Shakespeare can be difficult for actors, so much is at risk. The stilted prose can have them walking a fine line between artist or arse. Thankfully, this short does not fail in that respect. The actor, delivered a solid performance, a believable accent and quite the kingly presence, even while wearing a skirt. The setting was, im guessing, a way to update it or make it relevant... read

    First thing that struck me was that this was the most technically professional filming and editing I have seen so far. The sound was clear and the use of single colour effect was nice. The special effects make-up and casting of actors was great. The only thing that was a little confusing was the concept. Are they hunting the humans or the cars? The action moves too fast to... read

    The production value was good for a zero budget film. The green screen and stock footage seemed to flow with the subject matter. This one felt like a former streetwise beatnik telling the younger folk his version of narcissism. Belief in one’s own abilities is fine, but the real magic in life comes with working hard and doing the little things every day. Case and point... read

    Production value was better than most on this site. Sound and shot selection were great. Not supposed to do episodic content here, but it pretty much stands on its own so lets move on. The main actress and the tweeker were both good and should keep going. Everyone else needs work or better direction. As far as the story, it should work for webisodes, or The WB if you... read

    Being a great follower of horror and suspense, I guess I am not the right person to review this short. My expectations will be much higher than most. I understand it was an homage to films that make use of night vision camera work, however I am not a big fan of those sorts even when done by the professionals.The idea behind that style is to lend some verisimilitude to the action... read
  • A review of Optimistic 9
    by HilaryfromPA on 08/06/2014
    The actors were very good, production standards high, both assets which unfortunately were lessened by the cuts to black. The meaning of the alarm clock escaped me. As for content: if the "corrupted" tormentor was asleep, then his victim's purity would seem to depend on her willingness to escape without doing what she chooses to do. The film's title possibly is related to... read

    OMG, just how dark can Elmer get. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee us!!!!!!! Dark, throbbing and disturbing, this film is just a short nightmare. Holy Sam Peckenpaw, yeaks. I'd give Elmer a Z rating, he is simply off the charts sometimes. Creepy and thankfully a film to forget. Not one of my favorites....and I am a true fan. In the past I have felt like if Elmer was going... read

    by EugyBizzaro on 08/07/2014
    I can relate. Everyone that I know has come to a point in their life when they are confronted in their relationship with family and with STUPID SHIT! Really, it is oh so human of us all. We lose sleep over these small aggravations and for what end? It really means nothing when you sit down with your sane self and go over the STUPID SHIT. But it does grind at us. This short... read
