'First/Last' by Multimedia Moguls

(Queensland & New South Walkes, AU) First Edit

First cut: Producers notes for the filmmakers

  • Foley missing throughout and deadens the whole experience
  • Music WAY too high – also too menacing from the start, keep the drone for when you need it at the end.
  • What’s in the world outside? I want to hear an atmos – this is sci-fi, create an acoustic world for us – remove the atmos when she starts to die to heighten the moment

    The performances are good (especially hers), the framing tight and I really like the lighing but the whole film feels way to quiet. Feel if you turn the sound up, add a bit of foley and maybe a strong sountrack you will have a very very good film. The effect was creepy as hell as well, really liked it.

    Agreed, good performances all round. I think you need a sountrack cue (music, SFX - maybe increasing the traffic noise once the disease kicks in?) to underscore the moment. There's an odd bit where we're watching the disease kick in and the line 'kiss me' comes in with no movement. I think the performances tell the story without having to concentrate too much on the effects.
    Possibly needs a bit of an establisher to set up the scenario? Maybe a car radio warning?
