Roomie (Horror Short)

YouTube URL
Pros: Lighting and concept was great. The camera angles and good. Very good photography
Cons: Execution was a little off. The main actor was not natural enough.
Loved the whole concept. The lighting and camera work was very good. I feel the main actor was not natural enough..but still the overall acting was good. Music was good too. The overall look was very nice and had a little bit of a creepy factor to it. Good work overall!
Pros: Sound Design
Cons: Performances
Narrative Inconsistencies
Great set-up. Nice mood established and a good use of genre tropes. Felt it unravelled a little towards the end in terms of logic, which is understandably difficult given the film length and genre.

Nice use of hand held camera and a sort of David Lynch vibe established early on.

Could have perhaps built more tension by maintaining an abstract tone similar to the start of the piece.

All in all a good job :)

Pros: Very interesting concept and direction. Good job overall!!!
Roomie is a well executed short with plenty of suspense to go around. Overall direction is good and scenes are dark. I would like to see more character development (ie cuts to pictures, family or past friends, tv) and alittle more movement in the scenes. That being said I really enjoyed the theme and direction of your short. Good Job!

Pros: The cinematography was great. So was the concept.
Cons: The only thing was when the killer put the bag over your head, you didn't really struggle on the ground too much.
I thought the cinematography was fantastic. I also particularly liked your concept and the suspense of it. What I found most intriguing was that your killer used a plastic bag as a murder weapon which is unique and different. You added just enough thrill and it shows that you weren't trying to hard. I really liked this one. Make more like this!
