«I could never get enough out of GTA IV's video editor. Amazing editing, post, music, and pacing. Looks exceptionally awesome! Loving all the custom stuff! Make more!»
«Wow, very good.. This was very cinematic and the editing was top-notch. The sound editing was the feature of this that really stood out for me. I loved how the gunshots coming from the left side of the screen only came through the left speaker, and vice versa. The 'crunch' effects were also wierdly satisfying when the bullets found their targets, as were the blood effects. I think you also did very well using the GTA software as I know the limitations and that it can be difficult to rid the footage of that "in-game" feel. I think you made a very good job of creating that elusive cinematic atmosphere.
I spotted a couple of slight problems. One was that the phone the guy is holding at the begining looks as if it has a hole where the screen should be. Not a massive issue but just something I noticed. Also at times the shaky-cam seemed a little too much, mainly in close-ups, it was noticeable that the camera was shaking about a lot and maybe it could possibly have been toned down a shade. I can understand why the technique was used though and that's just my opinion, obviously somebody else may feel differently. Another very slight thing was the driving sequence at the start. The car seemed to me to turn a little unnaturally and could possibly have been smoother. Again though, that's just a little thing and I wouldn't worry about it too much.
Overall this was a very professional and cinematic action-based short film which had me hooked from start to finish. The sound editing was excellent as I said and as always the visuals were outstanding. Now I really would love to see you take your skills and use them to make a longer movie. Your direction is fantastic and I have no doubt that anything longer that you decided to direct would be extremely well recieved here
