«This wasn't a bad little piece. The camerawork was pretty good throughout and I liked the nice slow pace you used. It really suited the mood of the poem very well. The VO was excellent, really suited the film perfectly. Very slow and deliberate, with great delivery of the lines. The set dressing was also very good. I particularly liked how you had him sat next to the fire. It gave the film a very interesting mood, as it was warm and homely looking, yet the atmosphere seemed cold and awkward. The subtle movements of the Archbishop were very well animated, and again added to the film's slow, deliberate pace.
One thing I thought though was that occasionally he seemed a little too still or when he moved it was slightly robotic. I realise it's difficult to get rid of the robotic movements in iClone but nevertheless I see that as a possible improvement that could be made. Also, I think in places it was overly quiet. I realise it was meant to be quiet to increase the sense of awkwardness but I think at times to create true silence in a movie you neec to add sound effects. For example, I think you could have added a crackling noise for the fire or a creaking noise for the chair whenever he moved. Perhaps even distant noises to give the impression that the house he is in is very big.
Overall, this was a very well put together little piece with a very nice slow pace and a great voiceover. The mood created was very good and I liked how it fitted so well with the poem. This was a pretty unique piece which was excellent for a first attempt. I just think for it to be truly excellent there needed to be just a little more to it. Very well done though and keep on filming
