Marco,

Just kidding about the women stuff. You should've added a little redman chewing tobacco dribbling down for the full effect!

I can see why the music was so important, it's interesting how some melodies get so imbued with certain emotions. I liked the sound effects, particularly at the start, and the little things you did to make it feel alien like tweaking the color of the vegetation. I might have liked a bluer sky in that hero shot near the end. Did you make it white to make it feel alien or was it just the approaching storm?

Smile,
Kris

Thank you very much for the comments. The first to mention how saturated I made the colors to give it a lil more alien feel :-) Music was essential, without that score we wouldn't have an entry to be honest. I cut it to the actual score from the movie and then thought I couldn't use it due to copyright. Then of course we had my composer rescore it to be legit, life saver. I think James Ray did well for the two or so days he had notice to recreate that melody. He added the didjeridoo for alien quality.

The sky, well, it was a little of both. The storm was to our backs and the sun high in the sky with a hazy cloud cover. It was very tough to get good exposure on my actor AND have a good sky. So I went for a milky white sky to stay consistant with the white star the planet orbits :-)

Guy humor…I see you possess a healthy amount of that, Marco!

Good shot choices. I’m glad you and your friends had a good time, congratulations on braving/surviving the inhospitable elements of that alien world in order to get the shots, and thanks for being a pleasant challenger. :)

A most heady critique of a most simplistic concept...

And here goes...

Some theological scholars present as viable 'proof' for the existence of God a quasi-theological philosophy that humankind possesses an instinctive desire to search for or know 'God'. The fact that there exists just such a distinctive and far-reaching desire pre-supposes the existence of an end that can satisfy it.

In this manner of thought, a clarified desire cannot exist unless there is, in fact, something that can fulfill it.

And so it is with beer. The very base and carnal simplicity in the desire of this mystical 'beer' is validated by the instinctive 'knowledge' that there exists such a beer that will satisfy this desire.

Noonerman knows.......he knows in his heart that there is a beer to be found.

You sir, have captured the very essence (farts & all) of man's reason for existence...his drive...his motivation...his defining quest for fulfillment.

A beer, right around noon.

And, as you presented it in unflinching, unwavering, uncompromising terms..........it is indeed a universal truth.

-------------------


Also, I loved this short. It was a lot of run to revel in its brave, bold.....um....frankness. I especially loved the deep slow growl of glory at the very end.

Awesome.

-Jon

Thank you Lorinda! We always have fun, if it's not fun, time to hang it up. I was the class clown and tend to still be, Levi, well he's just a natural, lol...

LOL "A beer, right around noon" LMAO!!!

Wow, now that was deep! Noonerman! Love it. Can I use it? Thank you for that incredible review of our short. It is VERY much appreciated. You are very on-the-spot when it comes to your interpretation of the meaning of this particular meeting -great insight!

We've talked and plan to make an extended verison of that short and then have it meld right into the begining of the second installment of the Redneck Planet series.

That was really funny. I am not sure that the females will find it as funny as we do, but I laughed a lot. Good job, congrats on the entry.
