«Fantastic. Really loved the visual style of this film. I can see why Chris and Norrie picked this one out. The music was excellent, very moving and perfectly used to fit the visuals. It is almost as if the music was made to fit this film, with the constant steady beat creating a parallel with each individual frame. Very nicely done. I also loved the way slow motion was used to give this film its very distinctive mood. The shots with the sky in the background were truly beautiful, in particular at 1:01. These gave the film a very dramatic and sad feel. The use of Guppi's trees was very effective in creating a barren landscape for the film, and the cloudy sky gave it a very moody look. The story was very intriguing and thought-provoking and I loved your camerawork throughout. The character and set design was excellent and really added a lot of personality to the piece. All this added together gave the movie its own very distinguishable style, which separates it from the crowd. Very original.
One thing which some enjoyed but I was unsure about was the way the film played out slowly frame by frame. I thought at times it made the camera movement jumpy and had it been smoother I think it would have done a lot more justice to your awesome camerawork. There were moments where it really worked though, such as when the woman turns to see the man shot dead, giving it an excellently dramatic feel. Also, I think it was strange that all the trees you used looked exacty the same when it would have been simple enough to change them, either by using a variety of Guppi's trees or by turning the ones you used at a different angle so they all looked different. I just think doing that would have made the landscape that bit more realistic. Neither of those things really detracted from my viewing experience though.
Overall, this was a short film with a very stylish and original look which had me hooked from the beginning. Some of the visuals were absolutely stunning, and the camerawork was excellent. This film achieved in 3 minutes without words what most films don't achieve in 30 minutes even with the best voice actors to hand, and for that I commend you. Excellent movie, and keep on filming
