Yay it work's ^^ great re-edit like i said from be4 i really like the begining
the music kinda remind's me of the old robin hood televison show back in the late 80's/ early 90's biggrin i like what you were trying to pull off and with a new actress insted of that ghost plugin is great. but their were a few stuff that killed the illusion for me. One of the scene's were the chap walk's to the camera and off to the side and the ghost happens to appear could have done better . i mean it looked like she was behind him all the time lol and i'll have to say that ghost needed more work just alittle bit because it look like a goth chick more than a ghost :0 maybe should made her look pal'er or lighting maybe anyway i give it a 4/5

I submitted it to fxhome, but thel link went down. So when i fixed it, and they submitted it, it went down again. (bad host) And that happened a few times, and then there was a file mismatch i dont know. I just had a lot of problems but please can we keep this post for comments on the movie? thanks. PM me if you need to know something.

May I ask something: Why Zea votes 5 for himself and then the link crashed? Sorry but I don't understand how it could take so long to repair a link. I could do that within 5 minutes. Sorry man but that sucks.

Well, it was an ok film. You need some work on it though. Work on transitioning your hard cuts a little better, some were kind of shaky, and distracting. Also, your opening credits should have faded out or something, the end parts were kind of choppy, as well. Now that I’ve covered what I think visually, I’m going to cover the plot.
Well, I saw this film as something that was suppose to be scary, or you intended it to be, I thought it to be kind of dull. The #1 thing that makes a movie scary is Suspense, and not knowing what is going to happen next. You introduced our *ghost* a little too early, so it did not have much suspense. Another thing I recommend is REALLY LOUD NOISES! When some one is deep into your movie, and is concentrating on something, a sudden burst and surprise can get some one’s heart pumping, also a set of eerie special effects and sounds (like one of the scenes in White Noise) can get the adrenaline pumping as well. But the main focus is keeping your audience in suspense and getting their heads stuck in the film with the other characters, wondering what is going to happen next. Then you will be able to entertain your audience.
I recommend checking out Nosferatu. It’s an old German film, but even though its old, it was still very suspenseful, and entertaining, beating out some of today’s movies with their top of the line special effects. So before you worry about the special effects, worry about the story.

I liked it. I agree with some of the previous posts in that there are some areas for improvement, but I think it has a lot of potential. You have some nice shots and some of the cuts work well. However, slow it down a bit. Make the cuts longer and have a few more scenes, particularly at the begining. I think someone has already said about the "ghost" appearing too soon - this is definately true. Keep it up though, I look forward to seeing your next movie (or this one if you decide to polish up a few bits).
4/5 from me.

Thanks, yes this was only one scene, so not much character development or storyline was really developed, but since this is our 2nd video of the same thing, maybe we will keep making it until its perfect, then move on with the rest..because it is seeming to get better. Thanks a lot though for your comments, they are really helpful.
