Pros: Both leads performed well and the story had interesting components to it

Cons: A little rushed but that is understood considering there is only a certain maximum length the film could be

Other Thoughts: Felt like it was good for the time allotted and time to work on the film

5 Color Change.. by tony419
7/6/2013 6:55:48 PM

Pros: It`s a very unique story and the actors were, for the most part, awesome. I liked the main characters most because of how well they showed their emotions in their facial expressions.

Cons: The color should have been black and white in the beginning since it would give more feel of "back-in-time". It seems like it is the 21st century in the start , and they are just wearing peculiar clothing.

3 Good Concept by michaelduck
7/6/2013 11:59:41 AM

Pros: I thought it was a good concept. I also thought the actors did a decent job in the roles. The female lead had facial expressions that were well done and I applaud you for focusing on that. The camera work was not distracting as well which is always a plus. A good use of a steadicam (or equivalent) would have been when he finds the pictures. Would have looked good there if it was possible.

Cons: I am going to focus on some areas that I feel (my opinion) could help the most as you progress. It seemed like you tried to fit too much in the time allotted and your pacing suffered some due to it. I also did not notice his view of color until the food scene. I might have caught on quicker if the entire beginning was black and white to show the obvious contrast to the present. I also noticed some of the lights were way too hot and some shadows were too hard. Some reflectors/diffusers could aid in this. The clothing continuity was a little distracting. Especially since in the 4 months they were together they only seemed to wear 2 sets. Finally, I believe I noticed a couple of times that you broke the 180-degree rule (beginning of food scene for example). It was subtle as the camera did not move too much, but it is definitely something to keep an eye on. Some people are very distracted by that.

Other Thoughts: I feel that you have a good foundation to improve as a filmmaker. I am not sure if this is your first thing to direct, but if so, well done. This is much better than some other first films I have seen in the past. If it is not your first, I am sure it is an improvement from where you started. I look forward to seeing more as you progress.

5 Living in Color Rev: by edwardc

Pros: It has a strong potential in script writing. I see what plot you were aiming for and on probably a small budget. I loved the male character. You can feel he is putting more effort in the story as the sort of time traveler that`s lost in his translation of his new surroundings and emotions. Very well put effort for such a small cast and budget, bravo.

Cons: Did not like the female lead. She lacked finesse and motivation of character. There couldve been more variety on setting than just a sole house, but I see you probably didnt have much to begin with. And perhaps more time shooting to add more. It has great potential.

Other Thoughts: Would like to see the director of this do more works and on a larger scale. I feel it could be worth a good watch.

5 Amazing by Hope
8/13/2013 10:16:25 PM

Pros: I thought that the concept was really good and very well thought out. It seems like the director worked really hard with what they had available to them. This person created a masterpiece.

Cons: I didn`t really see much wrong with it. However, if the film could have had more time to tell the story, it would be easier to understand.

Other Thoughts: Don`t ever stop making movies. They will only become more perfect. You have incredible ideas. Your name is gonna be everywhere one day.

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.
