David vs. Goliath, indeed!
I'm glad you provided the information regarding no weight classes being used in Prize Fights. I was going to bring up the weight difference, but while watching the film, I re-read your production notes. Anyways... wow - this was an extremely well-done short.

Camerawork: Excellent, all the way around. The color saturation in the color scenes was rich and beautiful. Your use of rough lighting gave the film a gritty feel to it, which I feel was appropriate. The scenes were nicely framed and composed. Nice edits. I like the symbolism you did, between the dish breaking, to our main character being knocked down.

Audio/Music: First off, I loved the fact that this movie was done in subtitles. In all honesty, I don't think I would've fully appreciated the movie, had it been done in English. The audio was nice. I loved the music - it fit so perfectly in with this film, and put the finishing touches on the mood I experienced while watching your film.

Acting: The acting was very believable and professional.

All in all, I came away really enjoying your movie. This is another favorite of mine in the festival, and I'm going to give it a Recommend. I'm looking forward to seeing more films from you. Best of luck.

Your shots looked very composed and framed edited nicely. The stock footage used worked well and fit in smoothly with the other edits. Audio/Music - I enjoyed the background music.... read

    This short came off as being just a segment of a story. Somewhere in the middle, perhaps. I have no clue as to how the 'victim' ended up being kidnapped, and who his 'replacement' was (i read the credits). I'm sorry to say that doesn't appear to be a complete film, or maybe I'm just missing something? Anyways... on to the review. Camerawork: Nicely done. The colors were... read

    This short was very cleverly done. The twist at the ending was great, and really any of the scenarios could be easily applied. Camerawork: Very well done. Good framing and composition. I liked the way the edits, at the end, were well synchronized with the music. The edits between his listening to his voice mail, to what his girlfriend was doing, was well done. Audio/Music:... read
