First cut: Producers notes for the filmmakers

  • Needs foley
  • Do a remix, the traffic is a problem
  • Try and trim, would be better shorter – look at every shot – does it need to be there? Can it be a bit shorter?

    Is nicely shot. Could do with a sound mix in the shop and alot of the dialogue needs to be turned up. Would get rid of the Em character if possible as she doesn't really add to the story plus trimming her from the beginning would get the run time down a bit.

    Other than that the performances are good,the tones nice and like I said its well shot. Good little film.

    This is a very nice looking film with very good performances. The glaring issue I have is double action in the edit. At 1:48 the male lead is seen to repeat the line "I'll take all of them". This needs to be fixed. With that small thing done & the producers notes followed this short will really go up a notch.

    This one's definitely my favorite! I liked how the volume built from decrescendo to crescendo...
