I watched it in a big hurry this morning, Scott, and then couldn't get it to play again tonight, so this is all I can remember. Sorry--old mind.

The audio was a bit of a distraction for me--kept me from getting into it as much as I would have liked. I thought your shots of the cards were well-framed and fun (especially close-ups) plus the dark background against the cards was cool. Rather than looking like a poker challenge on television it looked like a movie. And, oh shoot, there was something concerning the cards laid out that I liked. Wish I could see it again!

Somebody help me out here!

Hey Scott!

You did a nice job- especially for someone who shot in one day and edited in two. It is easy to say...and hard to do, I know...BUT...I think you should perhaps go easier on yourself.

You had some nice camera angels in this film and a dark lighting set up that I thought went well with this persons sort of desprerate state of mind...foggy. This dialog may be ok in the script...just a bit tough to follow due to a muffled type sound. The security camera views looked like they had an effect applied? Was that an emboss or an extrude type effect?

WSOP Champion Jesus would have been proud. Given that he has recently been stuffed into a refrigerator (for beer commercials) I'm sure he would love to play this cat.

Thanks for the input bradley again i really appreicate it, the audio was really weird because i recorded my voice over, decided i didnt like it, i threw on some sorta accent, then i recorded again, i liked it a little more than just hearing my normal voice, so i threw it on the timeline, then when i rendered it went really "tinny"

I also know that 3 days isnt a lot of time, and i tried to go easier on myself, but i had lots of troubles thinking of an idea.

The effect on the security video was, i could be wrong but, black and white + glowing edges

P.S. yesterday a helicopter picked me up in my back yard and took me flying over my school so i could get some ariels, then it dropped me back off.... for free... aint i lucky

I really liked your visual representation of poker, gorgeous, but it just wasn't backed up enough by the dialogue. The other issue was that it didn't make as much use of the 'camera' theme as it could have. But still, it was a pretty good entry!

Scott-

I'm not sure if it can be posted on this forum, but I have seen people post links to footage on other web sites. (Kind of like what we did with this film contest)

Sounds very exciting and am looking forward to seeing your work.
