I made this film as an introduction / presentation of a workpiece for school. I made a ringbox with a ringvinger inside, so I tought about a very creepy, scary introduction.

Tell me what you think about it, Enjoy!!

The opening sequence was very impressive, but I didn't like the chase portion too much - it just seemed a little too long drawn out smile

A little taste of horror, a little taste of magic or mysticism, a good chase, hopefully a good plot. Seems to me you have the ingredients for an excellent production. (chase scene was a little drawn out)

Good look!

By the way, I liked it.

Hi
may i say a few things.

1. the girl reminded me of a missing girl ( now found in bits ) milly dowler so that put me off a little.

2. very well done, good shots, great use of fx. quality was good. acting good.

3. I will gladly give you a 5 ( even if it risks mine being knocked out of the top ten )

4. you have asked for comments and votes, please feel free to do the same for others...Big brother is watching you

well done

Can I get a traanslation of the above post, please? (Curiosity Killed the cat!)

Anyway, I don't go for horror but that was well done.Good job on the "feel" of the whole thing. I think that is the most important part of the "art" of filmmaking

That was pretty good, I couldn't tell what was happening but it looked good. A little spooky really, didn't like the location at first, it seemed a little plain, but it's grown on me, I think it added a certain "something" to it. Rather good, however for some reason after watching it I now have the rocky theme tune in my head, don't know if it's connected to your film.

What I most like about your comments, is that all of you get a special / strange feeling about it. I think thats the best compliment you can give me!!!

B4uask30male:

1. the girl reminded me of a missing girl ( now found in bits ) milly dowler so that put me off a little.


The girl is my girlfriend, I don`t know the story of the missing girl you talk about...

2. very well done, good shots, great use of fx. quality was good. acting good.


This was the first time, my girlfriend was acting. So I give your compliments to her
3. I will gladly give you a 5 ( even if it risks mine being knocked out of the top ten )

Thanks man!!!!!!!!!!

4. you have asked for comments and votes, please feel free to do the same for others...Big brother is watching you


Your right about that: I promise I give more comments and vote more movies


X: this is the translation of the post (its Dutch by the way)

Hey, it looks like your active again on Alamdv, I saw your clip at Patricks place (http://aap.dyndns.org/patrick). good use of sounds and FX, 5 Stars!!!

V6proz: Thanks for your possitive comment. The funny thing: I made the movie with a very old video 8 camara, but I often visit this and other forums, so I learn how to shoot more like the pro`s

Two_Gunned saint: The film is half of the part from my project: I made the ringbox for a schoolproject and putted a fake vinger inside the box. so when you see it in real life, you think: Maybe it was not a dream, but real!!!

Yup I agree with everything that has been said, the editing and angles during the chase were great.

The only thing I didn't like was the voice at the end, I think using a deep bass voice cheapens the effect of the rest of the film, if you want the voice to be spooky try multilayering. Record the speech using a natural voice a number of time, whisper the dialogue, shout it, screech it and then layer these sounds on top of each other. Watch the Exorcist to see how they did it, it should make the voice sound otherworldly....

Rating: +1

Do the films really have to use Alam effects, I thought this site welcomed filmakers in general, if they make one film without the effects, Is that so bad, surely if the director showed talent they should be allowed to put the film up here. I woudn't care even if it didn't have any alam in it, even though this one did.

Yeah as the cinema only contains links to files hosted on other sites.

There could be two sections one for Alam stuff another linking to non Alam films
