A Kirill Kripak Film

The highly anticipated sequel to last year's online triumph a Redfruit (http://redfruit.scope-films.com) comes this movie with even LESS plot, more guns and a hell of a lot more fun!

RedFruit II picks up right where the first one left off, the villain, Stiletto making his break. But the hero, Daugherty, was not killed. The bulletproof vest came in handy as got right back up in pursuit of his foe. Watch as they engage in a high-speed car chase with nothing but ammo to spare.

Buckle-up, because this baby doesn't yield for pedestrians!

Yeah, that was some good stuff. Very energetic. Liked the "why didn't you 'kin cover me!?!?!" "does it 'kin look like I can see anything!?!?!"

The bits where it froze the characters in red and superimposed their names was a nice touch too. As was the titles over the gun loading etc. Nice sounds as well. Created alot of energy, which many amateur action films are lacking, although it must have been hard on the camera man all that running around. smile

Lookin' forward to the full thing. Looks like Redfruit x10.

Good to see tracers too. I use nuff tracers in my film as well. Also did you use the same shot of a guy loading a replica Walther P99 twice?

That was good.

I've been waiting for this thing for along time, I thought the project went under wink

Pros:
Character introductions
car chases (yey!)
tracers
titles

Cons:
Half the trailer is the title...
The final shot at the end. Should be a quick snip of some high octane action sequence or something. Instead we get a guy jumping over a fence razz

4.

Cheers,
Fight.

Two_Gunned Saint: You got me. Ya, I used that shot. I really like it and I think it works very well when it's cut to black. Yes, it was kind of hard on the cameramen (2 cams)...especially from me since in a few shots im hanging out the car windows.

Fight: Thanks. It's nice to know that some people are actually looking forward to my work. biggrin As for the end title, I thought it was necessary and perfect place for the tagline, but I do agree that maybe it was too long (not half though). And yes, the final shot. That was a tricky one for me as I wanted to have a similar shot like in the RF1 trailer and that was the only "jump" shot I had.


Hmm, fight, you said you give it a 4...the vote was registered as a 3. what's up with that? wink

That's really awesome.

But since it's a trailer I'm not going to rate it high.

Sorry about that. I thought I put a three at the end, apparently not. It's because like most people here I don't like rating too high on trailers.

Mistake on my behalf, I apolagise smile Anyway, look forward to it coming out.

Cheers,
Fight.

Chyper, you really have some great idea's, liked the style of the freeze frame with the red around the edge, very well done.

Titles and Logo, as always with your films, Great.

Action looks good.

The only 2 things that kinda spoil it for me was (no i'm not going to say the guns )
the hand held shots, ( Have you ever heard of a chest pod ) i had one years ago, it straps over your head and rests on your chest, ( kinda like a stedycam )
The other thing was I find it hard to believe ( your age ) ( not a moan as i made gun films at 17 upto 21, )

I don't think i'll ever get my point across about acting your age ( until you get to 25+ )
ok, try to explain myself. PRIVATE RYAN, worked, I believed that.
( not because of fx's or directing etc) Now look at Chypers vimmy ridge film, very good, but I really don't believe in it. ( Before you say that was a school project, i'm using it a an example )

With Chypers skill and friends, I would love to see a film from him about his age group do.
If he wants guns and car chases fine, but in a context that would work. ( such as a high school gang shoot out, or a geek from school gets picked on and comes back with a rocket launcher )

I made a film when I was 19 (call me a psycho ) and my two 19 year old friends play Detective Inspectors ( It's sad that they look nothing like police, and thus not believable )

This is just my view ( please don't turn this into a nasty thread frown )

Its not gonna turn into a nasty thread b4uask. We're all friends here wink

I do see your point and being of a young age myself I can understand. Problem is young life is very boring. There are no car chases or gun fights or hand to hand fights (apart from the odd one you might get into with a friend and they're usually over before they start wink) And if we were to touch on serious subjects that involve guns and the like then:

A) It would be very controversial
B) Very difficult to handle tastefully

This is why lots of younger kids do action stuff that should be left to the adults. Hell I know I do. Although saying this I started to film a short the other week with a mate which is plot/dialogue heavy with little to no action. But we're still pretending to be older than we are so....

Meh, I see what you mean but you've gotta see it from a younger perspective as well.

Cheers,
Fight.

My God, the first thing that I agree with B4 on! My biggest problem is the age of my actors/actresses. My friends want to do "big-people" movies about homicide detectives and shit, but it's always me that says "uh, no. let's wait 5 years or get a really really really good make-up artist." So, in the meantime, I film (for the most part) pointless little things to entertain me and viewers such as yourself. Believability: come on, have you seen a pixar cartoon? What from that is believable? nothing...but still, it's fun to watch; entertaining. Entertainment: that's what I strive for (thus, scope-ENTERTAINMENT).

And the whole guns thing is just my preffered genre. You like to parody (call it a something series), I like to shoot (and shoot the shooting).

And b4: please spell my name properly. it's Cypher, not Chyper (makes me think of chrysler, although i have no problem with them, its just annoying to see the name spelt incorrectly. as im sure it would annoy you if people were to call you bfourask or something)


EDIT: I'm really not understanding many peoples new rating habits. b4, you gave the RF2 teaser (which is only about a minute) 4 stars, but the trailer which i think is infitely times better (longer, shows more, more thought, more effort) a 3. You're not the only one, there are i think 2 other's that voted like this. Any reason?

I think alot of it comes down to a change in the persons opinion over a period of time.

Cypher, sorry about the name thing.

the reason i gave this higher was, the design of the start, with the red edges, I couldn't do that, and thus impressed me.
the titles always impress me.
add to that the action and it got 4.
from the 4, I'm sure the full film will be a 5.

well put together trailer and i liked the paused shots with the red around the people..

About the age talk going on here..as b4 said we made a film when we were 19 and we played detectives. At the time we enjoyed the parts we played and belived the parts we played. So if i was that age again (i wish) and had all the technical things that are available now i would most probably do something along these lines..

again well done and i liked the way you said at the end "Even less plot" smile

FX were good but ....


1. What are you doing? Running through people's lawns?

2. I think that 6 or 7 shots of someone loading a gun is a bit much.

3 Get a boom mic. I can't hear a word.

4. Don't act like a professional FX house when your not.

5. Nuff said.

eek H R Giger is the guy who designed Alien, and creator of loads more very weird art.
