Nice Job!

Sergiu,

I enjoyed the film (although I don't understand a word of the dialogue). The film almost didn't need it.

Good use of effex without overdoing it. Pretty good talent too, for low/no budget.

The best thing about the small cams is you can shoot drama on the streets without attracting the attention of your 'extras'. And you don't even have to buy them lunch.

Congatulations! Hope you enter it in some festivals.

Ken.

I second what Ken said, very well done. I didn't understand a word of it as well but it almost works better that way bc it really left me wondering what transpired and then I just came to my own conclusion. It may or may not be what transpired but my point is it involved me on a different level, which really pulled me in.

Sergiu,

Really enjoyed the film. Good work. What software do you use to edit?

Jamie.

hey!

Nice one Sergui

I love the opening scene in the bathroom the use of the mirrors are very effective in giving that sense of disconection 'the guys arm'. The use of colour throughout is great as is the sound. Again the strenght of the visual almost negated the need to understand the dialogue, you just.....knew what was going on.

What is your background and how long have you been making films for?
I know that Romania has a very long tradition of producing excellent and innovatiove annimations.

Keep up the great work and let us know what happens with this film.

Have you thought about adding sub-titles... in english of course!

Nice work i liked the effects, maybe you could subtitle it for us fussy english people!

But maybe that would take out the mystery of the film?

Sergiu, good job...
What did you use for sound recording? and, also, did you use matte box and filters? because images came out impressive.

congratulations
Vic

Nice job. Seemed to flow well even though I didn't exactly know what was going on! ;-)

Would you share your presets? It would be nice to add to the XL2 presets list that no one seems to want to contribute to. Did you shoot in 25p?
