«Loved the camerawork and the script turned my mind inside out. Funderful stuff here Lewie!»
The Guilty Party
«Ok, this is the second film of yours I've seen. I'm now subscribing to your works. You have a very unique and refreshing approach to storytelling. Your ideas and dialogues are beyond exceptional. Had I found your works sooner I would've nominated you for and Ollie Award or two--you are THAT good.
However, in regards to your camerawork, I did find a few flaws (as I noted in your other film as well). Firstly there was the edge of the city set showing in the scene with the red car--again I attribute that to carelessness due to your zeal in bringing this film on to the screen. I also found it odd why your camera panned across or focused on various set pieces during the protagonist's phone conversation--it seemed just random and arbitrary and not related to anything going on. Perhaps it was just to avoid a boring static shot of the same guy speaking into a phone, but I think a director of your caliber could've found something more concrete to focus on--perhaps even something symbolic and pertinent to the subject being discussed (example, his father's old funeral announcement which he kept--which symbolizes his guilt for not attending the memorial).
I hope you don't mind me spewing my personal preferences and opinions into all my reviews. I just hope you might find something of use in my ramblings to improve upon your already remarkable works. »
«A very nice script. Very nice indeed. I liked your voice acting too. Camera work was a bit puzzling to me, not because of the set's edge showing, but because I could not figure out the meaning of objects showing on the screen. This was the best TM movies I've seen in a long long time.
«Wonderful, just wonderful!
Great voice acting and some great writing, Well done on voice acting those two roles, I think you did brilliantly! A chilling film indeed, you felt uneasy with the caller, not knowing what he was going to ask. Some great camera work and nice set dressing too!
The only problem with the movie is what has already been said with the edge of the set showing, but apart from that small little nitpick. Wonderful stuff! I'm going to feature this so it hopefully goes onto the homepage.
You're definately one of the upcoming directors on TMU Lewis, well done
***** - 5 Stars»
Great, great writing, and an outstanding performance on both roles - like Norrie, I completely forgot it was you doing both the roles. The torment could be felt, the being uncomfortable, and yet feeling forced to answer... he could have stopped it at any time, but didn't. It gave me the chills!
The camera work was great, too - just the one scene where I could see the edge of the set pulled me out of the mood a bit, but I refused to let it pull me out too much.
Wonderful film, I want to see more!!»
As good a short as I've seen for a long time. Great, great writing, performed with realism. I was so into it, I forgot you did both VOs. The tension built up at the end was beautifully done, and had me holding my breath.
If I may critique the filming: at one point I saw the outside of the bedroom set which jarred, and diverted attention. Look out for that... it can really kill the mood.
Other than that, some really different cam work, and superb editing, both sound and vision. I'm really enjoying what your doing. This one gets flagged for notice on the Front Page.»
«A well written story, well acted too. I particularly like the way you portrayed the caller.
"did you love your father" was repeated in the exact tone 4 times in a row which added a chilling note to his voice. Really enjoyed it, here's another film involving a telephone and suspense if you are interested.
«Very interesting movie you have here. Definately unique. Dialogue played a bit part in this, being a psychological horror, so the script had to be good, but i thought this script was better than good, it was great. Not only was the script good but the voice acting was spot on. The uneasy pauses of the man explaining why he didnt go to his dads funeral made it realistic. You could really tell he wasnt comfortable talking about it. I think you have made a great little film
