3 The Artist by JBoyett
12/19/2014 7:58:16 AM

Pros: The cinematography was simple, but I liked it--a couple of effective shots. Even though it`s a simple thing, I liked the montage of the guy hanging around the house at the beginning--I got the sense that he was dawdling a long time, but I never got bored and felt the movie itself was dawdling. When he opens the basement door and starts heading downstairs, I know something bad`s happening because it`s a sinister shot, but the twist (that he has a guy down there he`s going to torture) was still enough of a surprise to work.

Cons: I understand that he tortures the guy in this particular way because he`s inspired by the Mantegna print he saw upstairs, but it still seems a little random. Mantegna`s picture of Christ is so famous and has so much symbolic meaning that it felt like there should be some deeper significance about the way the "artist" kills the guy. Right now it feels sort of like an idea that isn`t fully developed. I know it may be a budget thing, but I didn`t buy the victim`s blood. It sort of just looked like stage blood and bits of latex that had been applied kind of randomly. It`s a small thing, but I noticed. We only know that the victim is suffering because we hear his screams during black-outs. When we see him, he`s kind of moving around some, but he doesn`t seem to be struggling, almost as if he`s drugged. Our visual information about him doesn`t match up with the screams that we hear.

Other Thoughts: Looks pretty good, keep making stuff.

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.
