'Jealous Making' by Team Bansai Banter

(London, UK) First Edit

This was our last minute entry in to the 50 Kisses competition. We script edited, pre-produced, shot the film, and did the post-production in the space of 8 days to get it in on time, and were thoroughly glad we did!

    There is a wonderful, natural quality to the acting that I really like - very believable. As mentioned in the producer notes, the drinking montage could be shortened, and finishing on the photo of them kissing would make a neater ending. Well done - a really good effort.

    I am a really huge fan of this. In my very humble opinion, the acting is among the very best in the competition. I love the genuine ending, and the story just works.

    I got lost a few times in the dialogue dropping out, and montage was for sure too long; but I really think this version would be an asset to the film.

    Loved it. Enjoyed the chemistry between the two. Felt very natural. Great score...was it original? Could use some trimming and several shots are underlit and in need or correction. Great entry overall.

    Thank you all very much for your feedback and the great compliments! It's very nice of you to say!

    The Producer notes are absolutely correct and we would have loved to have included them but we didn't have time to re-edit in the end, due to other projects coming along at the same time. But should we get another chance, we will!

    Thanks again!
