Signs of the Times
Cute movie. The bonus out-takes at the end were enjoyable.
Camerawork - very nice, all the way around. I liked the crane shot at the very end. It have the movie a 'movie' feel to it. The shots looked nicely framed and composed. Colorbalancing looked good. The editing kept the film flowing nicely. It fit in well with the pace of the story.
Audio/Music - Wow... Foley! Nice, very nice! The music suited the movie. Gave it an 'Action Movie' flavor. The music was well paced with the editing.
Acting - the acting, while not bad, was just 'okayish' to me. The actors all did a good job, but it reminded me of the highschool drama club style of acting.
All in all... a cute and clever film. Here in Cleveland, we see signs all the time - seems like the roads can never seem to recover from Cleveland winters, and chuckholes are never-ending - quite literally. Also... I'd consider this short to be a comedy as well. Too bad you can't slip in one more genre as I think it would suit the movie well.
Best of luck!

    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
