Now is the time to tell you about the films.
Since Christmas I wondered if it was possible to make 5 short films that tell their own story but when all 5 are watched the story comes to together in a bigger picture.
The first Challange I had as the writer was to make each story Interesting to the viewer, the next and proberly the biggest challenge was can I make all 5 and let the viewer watch them in any order ( I think a worlds first ) That's right, you can watch the 5th film first and the will all still make sence.

The Films are

Who watches the criminals
Time team
Quo vadis
Phone Box
The Future, the end.


I hope you enjoy them
Ian

Nice film. I thought the cinematography was great. The acting was great for the most part. But I think you need some work on your titles.

Very Funny, nice work.

There's a bit at the end with the suitcase linking to Who Watches the Criminals, but I don't see the connection to Time Team.

Oh, & there's the obvious connection to Quo Vadis.

Interesting concept, & I liked it. I felt that the shots from inside the box could have been less shaky, some of the dialogue could have been a bit tighter & Kenny overacted (though I did enjoy it!). What sounded weak to me was when the guy at the end rang the police, it didn't sound realistic.

I liked the music but it could have been a bit lower in the phone box.

Is The Future, the End coming out soon? Look forward to seeing it, though I can't say everything is clearer to me as you say it will be!

YEAH, sorry if the bit at the start of the film where it said

"WHEN YOU WATCH ALL 5 IT MAKES IT CLEARER"
sorry if you took that as, watch 4 then don't get it. tard you still can understand each one on it's own, if I didn't say about the 5, you would have viewed it different and proberly said different comments.


Would you like the story handed to you on a plate, whats the fun in that.
5 Different stories, each can be viewed on their own and in any order.
they was filmed in this order if people want to watch them in that order
who watches the criminals
time team
quo vadis
phone box
( coming soon The future, the end )

p.s. x0veride gave "unclepains peradition" a 0 aswell so he's either thick and pressed the wrong button or he's making a path for his friends film.

Hi,

I don't understand how you can watch them in any order, especially as you kill of the main character in Who Watches The Criminals?

Surely you must have an order? I can see the connections between
Que Vadis, Phone Box and Who watches the criminals, but I don't see how timeteam fits in (but I'm assuming the title of your last film will answer that)

Hi

At least the idea is working, making you think.

once the 5th film is finished you can watch them in any order,
the answer to the main guy getting stabbed is, well
if your really interested I'll send you the script for the last one, pm if interested, if you can hold on the 5th should be out in two weeks

all 5 films lead up to a supehero feature film due to start filming 2005

The post ratings aren't meant to comment on how good or bad the post is for your personal view. Cause there isn't really much wrong in Wasers post (Him just not being impressed by your film doesn't make the comment bad) and not really much important info in Brettstas post (him commenting on someone who voted negative doesn't make his post important to the community)...

Someone saying something negative about your films isn't a reason to skip his post or suggesting to do so b4...Wich is what you do with your post rating. You should really try to life with peoples opinions...




To the film:

I thought it was okay. Had some funny parts. I liked the "you killed kenny" joke. smile

What I disliked though was the music... You know how crazy I am about filmmusic, and yours just seemed to have no real connection to the picture, to the cuts, the movement. Just seemed like some general "mood" pieces randomly applied to the shots.

But it was enjoyable. I must watch the others too then to see if I can spot a connection. smile

all 5 films lead up to a supehero feature film due to start filming 2005
Heh, sounds like we got competition then... wink

My reply to Wasers post was about the fact he was unimpressed with the films because he could not see the connection.
I pointed out that the connection works with all 5 films not 4.

I gave Brettsta a point for being on the ball, quick of the mark, well spotted, It's people like him that force the people that vote bad ( I don't mind a 0, but unclepains film desrves way more ) If you panda to the people that do that then your just allowing more to do it, I felt sorry for unclepain, I know the vote don't really count, but it's when people point out things like that it helps the whole community grow.
That's all sollthar, nothing more than that, but your making me scared to say something or give a point out when it's brought back up, I feel the politicle correctness is coming, and why just me? Brettsta pointed it out, surley he has the right to comment on that and my point is showing agreement with him.

Anyway, No competition with you Mighty Sollthar, our superhero film will be made for fun and not a serious film like yours.

I was just tring to explain what the post rating system is meant for. Not just to you, I had to explain it to other people as well. smile

Just noticed you gave Wasers post a -1, wich is saying "don't read this, it's of no importance"... And that is just not the point of the ratings. His remark was neither stupid or pointless, so no need to give him a -1 and suggest others to skip his post just because you might not agree with what he said.

And even though Brettsta has a point with what he said, what he actually wrote "care to explain?" is not really of major importance to the community. And a +1 is supposed to be a post that contains useful information.


The +1 is NOT meant to say "I agree" and the -1 is NOT meant to say "I disagree".

Thats all I wanted to say. We're trying to push the rating system in the direction it's ment to be. smile

You missed the point again sollthar sad

but first i must say I hardly ever give -1's and i've seen some -1's on here that had no right to be a -1 but I don't hear them getting commented on.
( I'll dig the links out if you want )
I can see that you thought because someone comment with a negitive comment that you feel it's right to justify yourself agains't my -1, I understand you feel I gave the -1 as a "get back"
This is where you missed the point.
I gave -1 to skip this post ( even though everyone gives -1 for other reasons ) i gave -1 skip this post because he had made an error.
He said "do you need to see all 5? all in all, not very impressed"
HOW MANY times do I have to put watch all 5, it's on the start of the video, on the first post on here.

I think you'll agree now that his remarks are aimed at the fact he didn't get the full picture, and all I done was point out ( again ) that ALL 5 need to be watched.
If he had watched all 5 and said he wasn't impressed and didn't get the connection that's fine.

(I just have to put this last bit as when ever I debate, people take it that i'm angry or hate the person I'm debating with, this is not the case I clearly like my views to be read as do other people and I never swear or show anger, I still love you sollthar and think your films are excellent, just to get that out of the way so you don't think i hate you )

Why don't you all just watch them as single films and forget about the link-up for now?...When we 1st started filming we had no intension of making the films link...it was an after thought and we thought we could see if it could be done...I don't post here that often and when i do view the posts there always seems to be an agrument going on...
We are all film makers with different point of veiws, some good some bad...even the multi-million dollar films get trash reviews at times...
All i'd like to say is that cheers for watching the film and thanks for your honest review.....(the guy in the phonebox) smile

Go and say this to all the Star Wars fan films if youre sayt=ing it to this. Sometimes its fun to recreate, make a parody out of, or make a fan film of a movie you like. Everyone is inspired from something...

The difference is that the Star Wars movies are admittedly about Star Wars and its story. They are fan films.

Phone Box is separate from Phone Booth but it is just a complete rip off.

Yeah, we have been known to make FANFILMS.
Opps that's what they are called, not rip offs.
For gods sake man don't watch our stargate or starship troopers films then.

It's fair enough if you don't like fanfilms, I understand.

( You do say in the above post that if a starwars film was a complete copy you would say bad things about that )
Please tell me other than a sniper and a phonebox where the stories are the same. please,
i'll break it down
phonebooth = guy wants to cheat on his girlfriend and the sniper is going around thinking he is doing the right thing.

Phonebox, = priest goes in box to call for ambulance and a crazy / mad sniper wants the priest to be a criminal.

I'll except your opology for saying they are the same in story.

In the case of the "Phone" movies, the character really doesn't matter much to the plot.

The plot is that there is a guy who picks up a phone in the phone booth and there is a sniper aiming at him from someplace that he can't see.

You used the same camera angles lines, events such as other people coming to the phone booth, other people being shot, etc.

Put more thought into it. Just changing the character really doesn't do much for the plot. You can think of another character in a couple minutes. It doesn't completely change the plot.

It wouldn't even have bothered me much if you had named it "Phone Booth," but naming the movie "Phone Box" makes it seem like you are trying to separate your movie from Phone Booth implying that it is original.

I think you are in error, without sounding rude.
In England we call them Phone Boxes, not booth's,
Now if I called it phone booth, then you would be pefectly right to say we are a rip off, but by changing the name it implies that it's a parady.

You wrote this "In the case of the "Phone" movies, the character really doesn't matter much to the plot."


But you also wrote this

"The difference is that the Star Wars movies are admittedly about Star Wars and its story. They are fan films."

See the connection, So why isn't mine a fanfilm ?

You wrote this
"If all the movies about Star Wars were called "Space Wars" and were movies about a kid becoming a jedi and learning that his father was a sith and leader of the imperials then I would complain about those movies."

My film did not copy the story from phone booth, so once again you have contradicted yourself.

As for the orignal idea's, I guess you haven't seen time team from me, ( or maybe you didn't get it ) it's a time travel story, oh wait there's more......
you want original, well time team and phone box and 3 others are all joined in someway ( can't give the ending away just yet ) but I think you'll find that IDEA to be proberly a worlds first and DAMMMMmmmm original.

So if you didn't like my film that's fine, i'm fine with that, but what I don't like is people trying to justify why they don't like it with lame excuses that are in contradiction with everything you say.

Baney Boy -
DO YOU NEED IT SPELLING OUT OR SOMETHING?!?!

I take it you don't understand the words "PARODY" and "PASTICHE" mean then?

I advise that you bugger off and look those words up in a dictionary before criticising other people's work.

b4uask30m even said himself:

Thanks, yeah the idea is a parady on the film phone booth
Or didn't you bother to read what other people had said before charging in and insulting b4uask?

Two things: how many camera angles can you use when you shoot inside a Phone booth???

B- Phone Box for me makes it clear its a parody/spoof/hommage. It's name doesn't imply anything more in my book. Besides, as pointed out earlier, the maker of the film specified it was a parody.

You are on an absurd crusade and the majority of your arguments don't hold the road.

Get off our high horse and show us YOUR movies.

But we were limited on where the camera could be as there is only one door to a phonebox/booth....i'm really happy with most of the comments here as they always help us out...ok there have been some strange ones, but they make the reading fun.... biggrin

Hi
thanks Rex,
I came up with the idea at christmas, i didn't tell the others until i finished the 3rd film
Not long, is the answer, i always believe that what you write first is the best, when ever i go back over something i change it and it turns out worse, so i stick with the I write first time.
The main thing I do when writing is push myself, either on CGI or stories that I don't think have been used before.
The 5th film ( the poster below ) should be online sunday/monday.
( I would advise those people that want to get the full picture to watch the other 4 films )

I do wish you'd put your talents to better use, all of you in the regular b4uask crew. I confess I've never really liked your movies, despite the miriad of good points which i do reconise and understand.

The reason i don't like 'em is because i just feel despair watching your films. Despair that you couldn't have done just a few tweaks here and there, and stopped doing these quirky dramcoms (or whatever the suitable buzz-word is). I only despair, to reitterate, because i can see potential but you seem to be too hooked on doing these semi-embarassing, curious films where you watch them, and smirk occasionally, but cringe more frequently.

"wee"? "smells of wee"? I don't appreciate uneccessary swearing in films as much as the next person, but the use of "wee" as opposed to "piss" just struck me as naively infantile. This is one scene where i believe piss would have been better than wee. (theres a phrase i never thought i'd type). In fact removing "wee"/"piss" altogether could have had far better effect, because we can't tell what it smells of - it would be conveyed purely in the face, which if jim carey has taught us anything, can be extremely funny.

Anyway, i digress. I respect your abilities, but don't respect their application. I'm telling it like it is, because you deserve to know how i feel. Please, please, please....do a film which uses all those talents, yet without sacrificing dignity. Get the short one with glasses to stop garbling his lines, use some colour grading so it doesn't look like a clip from 'You've been framed', stop *trying* to add comedy moments (yes, it shows) and stop using the boring angles - that final shot walking up to the car, that was BEGGING, begging i tells ya, for a reflected wing-mirror shot, just some variation damnit!

Please satisfy a very cinematicly-frustrated man!

Thanks

Not sure if you've seen the other films, if you did you would have noticed that the guy in the box was a priest / vicker / father ( what ever you call them in the rest of the world ) for his to use the word piss would have brought the scene down, so therefor the only correct word to use was "wee"

Also the end shot was the start of the " who watches the criminals film "
Thus the tie in, smile clever when you watch them all.

P.s
don't forget your always welcome to help me out, you live in England smile although I can't see any films you have made I'm sure your very good and seem to have a great sence of what makes a film, we start shooting D&D in May and would love your help.

Wow, you certainly called my bluff there! I've only ever done one film on Fxhome, which was a test of muzzle flashes, upload about 2 years ago, and filmed on the only camera i have: a webcam razz

I posess no knowledge of, nor ability with a camera (not that i've tried), but it seems few critics - professional or otherwise - are actually able to "do better", as the popular-yet-meaningless retort goes.

I'd be honored to help, but i suspect my abilities only lie in the creation of blistering critique on that which has *already* been created, rather than in planning to avoid the critique prior to filming razz

Thanks Tra,
Your right, I made phonebox as a parady of the movie phone booth.

If you are interested Phone booth is 1 film within 5, each of the 5 films have it's own story but when you watch all 5 it makes a whole film.
And the smart part is, you can watch them in any order, ( it was a killer to write but it worked out well )
you can see the rest here ( not all have csb effects and so couldn't upload them here )
