Nicely done short. I think at one time or another all of us have wanted to run from their jobs, and never look back.
Camerawork: I thought the camerawork was done extremely well. The lighting and colorbalancing remained consistent, in both the indoor and outdoor shots. However, some of the greenscreen shots, the character was not entirely matched, as far as lighting and colorbalancing goes - BUT, you did an excellent job at casting shadows on the character as he ran underneath overpasses, etc. Your edits were extremely well done as was your detail to composition and framing. The edits at the beach were quite nice, as was the faraway shot of the main character from upon the hill. Your glidecam shots were also quite nice.
Audio/Music: I really enjoyed the audio. The continuous sound of the clock, then the slowing down of the clock ticking, as well as the other use of slow-motion in the audio - I enjoyed it.
Acting: Although our main character had no lines, he conveyed his emotion quite well, through his facial expression, and body language.
All the way around, this was a well done short. I'm adding it to my list of favorites in this season's festival. Best of luck.

The stock footage used worked well and fit in smoothly with the other edits. Audio/Music - I enjoyed the background music.... read
A review of Replacedby SeaMowse on 11/30/2007This 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
A review of Colette's Last Bathby SeaMowse on 11/30/2007This 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
