There is nothing more terrifying then realizing the fear you're facing is yourself. RUN is a short whose storyline is elementarily simple; but that's not the point. There are deeper meanings being conveyed, but you have to look for them. In the end, what you get out of it is however you interpret it.

This short was produced for a film class here at school; the theme was Hope and the time limit was 3 minutes, not counting credits.

I acually really liked this, the guy acting did a great job. Usually no one can act like they are crying. that was pretty dang cool. but it was a little to short.
so I am going to have to give it a 4/5

It may come across as a little short, but remember 3 minutes was our limit. Thanks for watching it.

Very nice quality to this one! The cinematography was pretty nice, with good sense for grading. The last shot was fantastic. I don't know, I really liked how it felt...
good work!

If 3 minutes was indeed you're limit. I am suprised you managed to put so much story in it. I usually have the problem of accidently doubling the time. Recently I had to make a 5 minute film togheter with some friends, but we wanted to put so much story and psychical acting in it. We doubled the time to a good 10,5 minutes (including credits though).

You did a great job on 'keeping it simple'.
Make the story flash you by and let the viewer think. Something I still have to learn.

Nice film

Gekjas.

He lurks the dark alleyways of FXHome rating movies 0's and 1's and doesn't even take the time to explain what could be improved. This did not deserve a 0. Maybe you should PM him for an explanation...I dunno. crazy

This was very well done indeed. The "look" of the film was awesome!

I also feel you were able to put a lot of information in the amout of time you had.

Keep up the great work.

5/5 from me. (for what ever its worth.)

For cooldude (and anyone else), there is a Quicktime version available. I didn't put it up initially because the sound isn't as good. Heres the link:

Run for Quicktime ~32 MB

Enjoy!

OK, PLEASE, if you're going to rate this movie so low, leave feedback so I know what to watch out for in the future! enjoi4411, what was it that elicited a rating of 2? Was it for technical, aesthetic, or style of presentation reasons? The entire reason for posting a movie here is to receive feedback. For those of you who did, thank you so much.

Very very well done. Im really impressed, and i loved the way you had a shot of the reflection through the sunglasses lense. The ending window shot was also great.

I liked this movie enough to give it a 5 for sure. but just a few pointers that didn't really subtract from the quality of the film, but you should keep in mind.

first off, it was very hard to understand what people were saying. and Im still not sure if when the person is crying in the end he is saying anything or just crying.

However, this lack of clarity didn't take away from it. This was great.

This was mentioned before, but wow that guy did a great job pretending to cry. It really seemed sincere.

When the girl was shot, you played it out very very nicely. Especially the dead look in her eyes after word.

all in all, great job, and have you done very many other things like this? I would love to see them!

I'm almost repeating sgb4622 words but anyway.
I agree with everyone that the ending window shot was really great, beautifull. And I don't even think there was a lack of clearity, It just struck me as "wow!" and not as "what?!"
Everything was good, acting, colors, cinematography was way above avarage here but the framing was of a couple of times.

Good stuff, i really liked it.

why are you posting that in this thread? it has no relevence. I suggest deleting it before someone rates you down as is their right.
