Woah. That was freaky, not gonna lie. lol.

You got DOF shots like that without a 35mm adapter? Wow. That was really good. Heh, when I saw "Love My Pet" I was like "hmmm, well this is gonna be another cute clip of a puppy, or a kitty or something." Definitely threw me off guard. lol. But good job man.

That was a little unsettling! Loved the effects and textures you used. Were they just overlays or did you use a bump map? Nice use of color too. Great editing.

I don't know. I liked the rat. It seemed creepier than a dead fish. A dead fish would probably just make me laugh. lol.

very well done creep factor. I'd say you're ready for Silent Hill.

That was really impressive! May I ask how do you exactly make those shaky transitions and effects? are they done manually, or with a plugin? Thanks in advance.

Kids always add such a high 'creep' factor... Nice video... Very original... What NLE?

It looks very good, I had the feeling that the dof was enhanced during editing using masks and blur? Can you give some more info on the effects you used?

That's cool, when you refer to blur in camera, you just turn the focus ring to get a blurry image? Where there specific settings you used for the camera?
