3 Kind of confusing by m424filmcast
8/13/2013 11:19:27 PM

Pros: Some of the camera angles were really interesting. The effect of having shadows of the trees on the inside of the blinds was actually really cool.

Cons: I was kind of confused as to why there would be the sound of a rainstorm on what was evidently a very clear, sunny day. I`m not sure if that was meant to be confusing or if you were trying to convey a feeling that didn`t quite come across.

Other Thoughts: I really like films that make you think, however, in this case, I would probably have suggested maybe more interesting camera angles to help set a mood. Maybe some background music instead of sound effects.

5 Blinds and Light by colgal4
8/14/2013 12:27:12 AM

Pros: I thought the camera angles where great and also visually it was interesting. I did come up with my own story about the blinds being someone hiding because something tragic happened to them.

Cons: I kind of am confuse about the rain. I guess it goes back to the idea that someone is hiding in sadness. However I think there should have been an overcast or something outside.

Other Thoughts: Either way i`m interesting and looking forward to what you do next. I think next time maybe adding some music would be great.

5 Hidden Pain by 1Steve
8/31/2013 6:23:21 PM

Pros: The camera angles and lighting were very interesting. Good quality sound as well. I felt like I was actually there in the scene.

Cons: I think the sound of thunder could have started just a bit sooner. As others have said there was some confusion with the sunny day outside. However until I heard the thunder, my initial thought was that the sound was someone taking a shower.

Other Thoughts: The thunder and rain VS the sunny day and the open VS closed blinds for me symbolized a person in emotional pain. A person wearing a smile on the outside, but hiding their inner pain from the rest of the world. When the blinds were not closed quite all the way is when they were giving us a small peek into their inner conflicts, a short glance behind the forced smile. At one point the camera angle changed and the blinds were on both sides with the windowsill in the center. Gave the impression of a hallway, symbolizing a walk through life`s journey. I loved it!

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.
