3 Good Concept and Execution by michaelduck
7/12/2013 3:00:24 PM

Pros: I enjoyed the overall storyline and I thought the effects were nicely done. The music choices were also good for the tone you were conveying. Your lead actor did a good job as well.

Cons: Some of the scenes seemed rushed. It seemed like you spent a decent amount of time on the more important scenes, but the trivial scenes were not completely solid. For instance, in the bar, the other actor gets a shot glass to pour on him after getting beat up, but he never asked for it. He asked for 2 drinks and this was one, so it is assumed the bartender gave it for this sole reason. How did she know. Also, him going to bed in his dress pants. Little details can add some depth and reality. I also think some of the fight scenes could have been done a little differently. Some of the hits were good, but some might have benefitted from a slightly different angle. There is a great fight choreography on "Losses" on the Film Riot youtube channel if you have not seen it. I also think the look at the beginning would have been better with some color correction changes. This can really bring up the film to a whole new level.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a nice job. The story was good and I was impressed with many of the effects. I think you just need to keep an eye on the details of the non-important scenes as much as the important ones.

IndieFilmShare News

Future Winners

Once IndieFilmShare is established and running smoothly, one of the visions is to award prizes. These prizes would be to the person with the highest rated film as well as the person with the most reviews. We would like to do this on a monthly basis to promote great films and constructive feedback. We will keep everyone updated on the website as well as through twitter.

A site for independent filmmakers to submit their independent film for peer reviews. Indiefilmshare was created for independent filmmaking and to give independent filmmakers a place to display their work and receive reviews from peers on how to make their work better and in return become a better independent filmmaker. Independent film is an art that improves with constructive criticism and learning from various filmmaking tips. The main focus of the site is on reviews of films and not necessarily on the films themselves. This allows filmmakers to become better and not just a showcase of their films. We hope to see all of the indie filmmakers from this site improve and become the type of filmmaker they always wanted to be. We also hope to see our filmmakers labor be recognized to a broader audience. Best of luck and look forward to seeing all of your work on this short films website.
