Now, that's what I call a good film! Yeh!
Loved a whole lot of everything. So, I'd like to give some feedback.Pros
Nice bit of realism, standing in front of the mirror and the cutaway angles matched around that were great. Nice filmic touches.
Great VFX - I too had to look twice at the helicopter. I may have to look at 3DSmax...
Didn't even realise the guard actor had been "doubled". Very cleverly executed! The hat, the hidden tash, etc. clever!
Good switching with the music. Carefully edited.
Decent sound - I didn't hear much wrong at all. However that might just be my studio speakers.
Btw, tell the guy who gets shot point-blank in the face, "nice job". Realistic.
Hot chick too! Well executed joke about Anya, too!Cons
Like someone else said, the bit in front of the mirror took ages. To me, it could've been cut down by about 45-50 secs.
When I saw the get into bed bit - it also took a while. It looked like trying to act, "going to bed".
When I go to bed, I shove the covers away, jump in and pull the covers back, quick.
The overdubbed voice from the device he holds up, was VERY quiet. My speakers are set quite loud and I had to move over to the speaker to hear it.
The crack of the guys neck didn't sound off very well. If there was one. Like the above note, could be louder.
Like others said, the muffled guard was a bit annoying. My remedy would be an overdub fairly close to the mic (6-10 inches) and with something over the actors mouth, like the actual bandana. Should work a treat.
I was instantly disappointed with the bit where our hero sticks his gun round the wall for the enemy to hit it down. Shame. It looked really staged. Watch a behind the scenes thing on the film "Speed". I remember that being the first film I saw where the actors were trained to not
do things like that.
The shot where he drops the backpack - Could cut a second or two from that. Could even have put in a sideways running shot of the hero.
Thought the cabin looked a little fake. 3D'ed...Notes
Personally, I'd add some snow swept up from the helicoptor to give a better impression of it hovering for a second. Maybe an Alam plugin for that?
See the bit when he's looking at the building and goes "hmm.."? Well, why not put in a POV shot with a HUD effect? Just a suggestion.
Very cool film, dude.
