Latest reviews

For a submission/portfolio piece, this isn't half bad! The intro's use of stop motion is really interesting and helps capture the audiences' attention. As for the plot, it was a bit too extreme for my taste - perhaps a longer film would have been able to explore her repetitive lifestyle more and allowed for more build up.

Editing was good, things were generally smooth with no hard cuts. However, cinematography wise, it seemed as if your shutter speed was a bit off or something was wrong with your FPS? Either way, not significant, just me being picky!

It's an interesting plot film nonetheless :) keep it up!
Pros: Epic intro
Cons: clean up the editing
Okay, that intro was badass. I love stop motion. I'm not sure what it was supposed to symbolize though.... I thought that the pacing throughout was good and created a very dramatic tone. The scene where they are sitting in the grass could use a little better timing though. I needed their relationship to build a little bit more- or at least the feelings between the to. It just felt like it escalated too quickly. I didn't get enough of a sense of her world. I also didn't understand why he cared about her so much. It felt like they didn't know each other very well, yet he was with her when she died. Overall though, really great and intriguing. If you're going to USC in the fall, I'll see you there!
