Hey this is AJ, the co-director/writer of Finger Man alongside Chris.
(I just bought AlamDV but haven't downloaded it yet, so I don't have a name on here.)

I was wondering, by weird cuts, did you mean when we break the 180 degree rule during the lemonade stand scene? Or the split second of sound snap when the paper boy launches the paper at him the second time? Could you be more specific so we can see exactly what you mean? Constructive criticism is great for improving things and seeing from fresh eyes some new perspectives. Thanks everyone else who has commented on the film. We have a bunch of people teaming up to keep the story going for one or two more episodes, so to answer the question of how we will keep it going...you'll just have to see. Anyway, latz yall, and thanks again for watching and voting!!!

AJ

Hmmm. I sure you are expecting me to say something rude and abnocious *(spelling?) but suprisingly. I'm not going to. Why? Becuase this is the reason I download films. This was a good film can't wait to see what this nerd does with his powers next.

By the way I hope the sequel explains why he is killing all the people who are nice to him for no reason. But like I've said before. Sensless violence is great for the camera. As long as you don't make sensless violence look completely sensless. And you didn't so thumbs up from CREEK STUDIOS.

I give you a 4!


PEACE OUT!

hehehe, cool movie.
Nice blood effect on the mime. smile Looks kinda strange on the ground (somthing about the color)
I didn't like the M16 muzzle flash, looks strange when It comes from nowhere... well, overall a good movie. unsure

Wow this was a really great movie! I liked it a lot. The only thing I didn't like was that the camera was kind of shaky in the Lemonade scene. But I love the idea of that guy vacuuming his roof. That made me laugh out loud. Can't wait until the second!

I imagine most of the muzzle flashes look strange when they come from no where.
This movie was hilarious. biggrin

Great work! I loved the mime scene! (except the noises the mime artist makes are a bit odd).

I loved the way you framed the shots & moved the camera, the only scene that bugged me was the unsteady shots of the guy in the car beginning to drive toward Chris.

4 from me, because I wanted to know more about the character. In the next one I suppose you could go 2 ways - either have more slapstick revenge on his enemies, or develop him into a hero-type character with more depth.

Thanks for the comments guys. We did the test shoot for Finger Man 2 last night. Two and three should be done by the end of the month or early August. We plan on doing some crazy stuff with it. Well guys, later on. Good luck and keep filming!

Well well well if it isn't the #2 movie wink

I really like all the actors! The story was great. My favorite part is the mime lol that was sooo funny lol good one! I didn't like the end, with all the explosions, I don't know why, but it was kind of boring.

But because of the mime lol 5 stars!!

Good job! good actors!!!
good #2 movie wink
