First cut: Producers notes for the filmmakers

  • The grade is a bit to hot for me
  • Don’t need the first shot of the red light, move later
  • Trim shots that show down the action until she gets there
  • Needs foley
  • Good idea about the car radio to create perspective.
  • Reaction shots too long, trim

    i think the shots are put together nicely.

    The lens flare in the first shot is a little distracting. I wonder if adding diegetic sound, like her radio is on, or his radio is on low, would help give an extra layer and dimension to both characters. (Also would "disguise" the sounds being made in his car....)

    Love the intro shot with the lens flare (do like nice lens flare shots) but think that something is overal missing from the piece. Think Susie is right and maybe a car radio or a bit of foley sound from her car would help. It's a good film and the joke works well but just need to fill that void in the middle with some noise.

    I like this film and the surprise really works. A few seconds of trimming at various moments wouldn't harm.
    They're both drumming thier fingers on the steering wheel, so have them listening to the same radio station?

    The story actually works best if you start it at around 1.36 or so, from there to the end it is compact and very funny. If you don't want to cut that much you should definitely lose the first 40 seconds or so, to get things moving quicker. I think this story works with two people sitting at a red light and it appears they are checking each other out, and you don't need to lead in to it more than that.
    One other thing that is a big no no for me, is that at 1.08 and at 1.37 the cars in the background are travelling backwards. Also, what kind of intersection were they stopped at, because when she drives away she doesn't seem to cross any cross street?
