Good cinematography and score. Interesting creative choice to not show the payoff.
a true pulp title. cool all around production-wise and very suspenseful. shortlisted.
Excelent cinematography. what camcorder did you use?
excellent sound design and some memorable shots. check out my film "shore"
Nicely shot & edited. Music didn't feel right though, like it detracted from the tension.
Well done in most aspects. I did see the ending coming though. And if it wasn't for the 'title', your description and the ending credits, I wouldn't have known the 'why', 'who' or 'what'...
So well shot, so well scored. Really felt the tension.
the shots were good and nice location but didnt quite get the ending.....- jai nat ("The footprints")
Great work! loved the cinematography.
Very professionally shot, but the ending felt a little muddled. Enjoyed it quite a bit though.
First off, the title is misleading. It implies an edgy grind house vibe, but when the image and music finally come up after 20 seconds, it looks and feels something more like the film "The Hours". And Lee was right, without it, there's no context for the action. It just as easily could've been called "Man with gun enters woman's apartment for no apparent reason". Looks okay production wise, but as far as the story goes, it was boring. This would have been a decent scene in a fleshed out feature, or even a longer short for that matter. But when all you have is three minutes, it doesn't work that well. You could've done a lot more with the time in my opinion. Even the slightest bit of dialogue could have helped propel the action forward tremendously and created tension. For example, if you had audio of your man talking to his boss while your titles ran at the intro, you could have easily established who the players were, and what was at stake in a natural and uncontrived way. Also, It didn't make sense that the woman would be lucky enough to slip out the window with her life, and then risk everything by coming back inside to challenge a violent pimp with a gun, wielding nothing but a kitchen knife. It would have been a lot more effective for the woman to be forced into a situation where she HAD to defend herself. If you wanted to go with your original line of action, fine, but give us a reason why the woman would come back and risk everything. A good way to do that would have been to introduce/reveal her young child sleeping in a room unattended. With a few simple tweaks this could have been an effective story. As it stands though, it's just a string of decent looking images.
Thanks to everyone who watch and voted and left messages of praise and criticism. It is all very welcome... We need to both adore each other and challenge each other....
