Short Narrative with stock A1

This is my latest short film. Less than 5 minutes long.

Please let me know what you think.

Fantastic job Takashi. Great execution (no pun intended), nothing bad to say.

Thank you for the nice comments. We shot this stock with the A1. No letus or additional lenses. I believe we used the PANALOOK preset found in these forums, but some significant grading was done afterwards.

Thank you for watching and any additional criticisms would be very welcome. We are always trying to improve.

This is what is Meta film is-

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Similar to metafiction in technique, the style of the film-making shows that the film is a metaphor about the production of the film and that the audience is tied in with the drama unfolding on the screen. Examples of this would be Federico Fellini's 8½, Maurizio Nichetti's "Ladri di saponette, François Truffaut's Day for Night, Jean-Luc Godard's Le Mepris, Spike Jonze's Adaptation., Living in Oblivion by Tom DiCillo, J.J. Lask's On the Road with Judas, Michael Powell's Peeping Tom, Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om and Zoya Akhtar's Luck By Chance.

Again, I really enjoyed this short film. It is different, but unique, and captivating. We need more work like yours - keep it up. And the XHA1 definitely shows what it is capable of once again.

very good, I really liked it. the ending surprised me because I was thinking that when you hear the radio crackle right before he shoots.. that it would be his partners pulling a prank on him. my only criticism is the audio when the two spanish speaking men begin talking. it sounds too clean. the perspective should be from the guy on the toilet, so maybe muffle it a little bit and make it more echoey, because they're in a tight space. awesome work though,

Chris
