TheBiz's House of Horror
«Great work Biz!
You really captured the 1st person camera feel.
The camera movements and the sounds really sold the whole experience.
This turned out really good considering how little time you had to make this.
Nothing is scarier than a witch on a bike, except maybe a goblin riding a unicycle.
Coulda used a couple of melancholy hunky teen vamps .
All in all, a good show.»
«BRB, gotta change my pants....
Ok, so, there is this thing every year called Spike and Mikes sick and twisted animation fest. (http://www.spikeandmike.com)
This reminded me of something I would see in it. I dunno how you do it, but you do and every time I think what could he do next..and blammo..here ya go doing it.
«What an experience. it was extremely authentic and extremely well done. At points, it felt so vividly realistic in it's pov movements and yet so surreal with it's unique and striking imagery. It was hypnotic from start to finish and wish it could last longer.
Please build more houses of horror Mr.Biz Sir :-)»
«That was way better then I thought it would be going in and by that I mean just outstanding. It was better then the Haunted Cornfield I went to on Halloween night and I didn't blow the $15.
I love the blend of humor and creepy atmosphere. I think the marriage of iClone capabilities and your graphic design capabilities is going to be one that produces some classic arthouse films with this one being the first. »
«Before I start raving about the incredible art design here, I have to mention just how great the sound design was. It complemented the creepy visuals perfectly, giving them a third-dimensional feel to it and really adding the atmosphere of a reeeeeaallly creepy haunted house. The echoes, the thumps, the creaks, the wise-crack remarks from that Butcher dude and those severed heads... whoah, it just blows my mind!
And there's no better visuals for those sounds to accompany than the visuals in this short, which are a real treat. Every room had a certain creepy personality to it, very macabre and dark, yet somehow it made me chuckle a LOT as well. A great fusion between the wacky and the scary.
Overall, it's a great piece of high-concept art that is perfectly executed by the twisted visuals and highly atmospheric sound effects. The music fit perfectly, especially the piece in the Collide a Scope and the piano ditty near the beginning (composed by you?). The first-person shaky-cam feel really made me feel like I was there, and in the last room when that guy with the noose and the creepy clown dude starts chasing you, the hair on the back of my neck tickled a bit. Great job, biz!»
«Fantastic work Biz, brilliant use of the first person camera effect, and so well filmed. I really did feel as if I was there in that haunted house. And the house itself was so well designed. Great attention to detail with all the ghosts flying around in the background, etc. Some parts were funny and some were extremely creepy. And the bit where the dead body got up and chased us was so nerve-wracking. Great sound design too, totally engaging. The VOs were very good too, where they were used.
I have hunted up and down this five times now and I still can't find anything I would change about this without being ridiculously pedantic. It's just such a perfect piece of machinima, very, VERY well done Biz.
Overall, this was just a flawless piece of work with great atmosphere and originality as always. I'm adding it to my favourites. Loved it.
