Short Film for 72 hour contest

A few friends and I created a short film for a 72 hour contest (written, shot, edited in under 72 hours).. It was shot with the XHA1 (and one or two shots with a panasonic handycam).. As you can imagine its not a lot of time to put something together. We totally ran out of time in the editing process and had to just start throwing shots together so we'd finish on time; and we spent almost no time working on the audio, and never got around to color correcting, either.. :)

We're not even sure if people will understand our concept..

Anyway, comments are welcome..

I understood what was going on by the very end. That was kind of cool. I like the scene where she's saying stop it, but she's not talking.

The physical similarities between the two guys at the station confused me slightly as to who was who, and I got lost as to who shot the second guy (himself or the woman).

Having said that, I have been involved in a 48 hour film challenge so know the pressure you were under, and think you did a brilliant job given that.

A well thought out story and some good shooting. Now you realise what the issue of time constraints mean I am sure you will allow more time for editing next time and I look forward to seeing your next film challenge submission.

Regards

Colin
