I just wanted to say that these films really raise the bar -- I felt like I put in a strong entry, but I'm learning that I still have a ways to go.

I thought for introspectacle, the character was really strong -- you really got to know him. It was a little jumpy for me and wasn't the most clear on the relationship between the main character and the dead guy at the end, but I really liked seeing the scenery and watching the character, and I think I got the fact that it was his last thoughts or moments before he died... I think. (I'm a little dense/slow sometimes, so it's probably me.)

Thank you Philip

Sure appreciate your comments and am glad you identified and liked "Crash". I don't think you're slow at all- you got it! (don't be so hard on yourself) :)

Looking forward to seeing your film too.

Best wishes~
Bradley

I thought the shooting was super. I too got lost at the end for a bit. But on the second viewing and the coffee kicked in, I got it. I really liked the transition from the beginning to the rest. Sound was great. Awesome character.

I agree, I think my bar has been raised with these films. good job.

Thank you Michael

Glad you liked the character, the shots and the sound.

I appreciate your comments on the end. Relieved that after the cup of coffee kicked in everything came together. lol... Do you know how much coffee I was on while shooting that Crash Malone character? Two pots! Whew. Same deal in the editing process. I am a coffee junkie!

Looking forward to seeing your film too.

Best wishes~

Yeah, nice work, buddy. Such thoughtlessness! How am I supposed to win an iPod with a film this good in competition? Hm? Maybe show a little consideration for the rest of us next time, jeez.

Bradley (Brad?), I am positively floored. Everything's all peaceful and contemplative, pretty skies, tweetin' birds, soothing music, then BOOM! Cue the kickin' tunes and action shots. Kinda creeped out when I saw the freaky looking guy standing around, but couldn't stop laughing from the moment I saw the t-shirt close-up. You have a priceless character here--as mentioned earlier, it's true, he's an amalgam of several people I've known--and someone I most definitely want to see more of. And those landscapes, man, they're purdy. Great cinematography.

I'm still laughing about "libel"...

Thank you Robert

Very kind indeed! Am thrilled that you identified with Crash and was hoping he might have that effect on people.

Understanding that you are a wordsmith, I'm glad that you caught the "Libel" sign. That is so fun. The lady who owns that Rock Shop specifically pleaded with me NOT to use that sign and I told her it was something that just had to be in the movie. She laughed at me and said "Well...ok."

Much appreciated!

Best wishes~
Bradley

Bradley,

Wonderful cinematography (like the last thing I saw from you in DVC#3), great pacing, breat editing, and, I have to say, great and strange acting.

The concept is, I believe, waaay too wacky for me, but I must recognize the quality of the work involved. Moreover, you're the living example that I shouldn't have settled for the lame and sorry excuse of having my actors running away to avoid shooting for DVC#5.

Best,

Hugo

Thank you Hugo

Very happy you liked the cinematography, pacing and editing. I laughed hard (out loud) when I read the line "...waaay to wacky for me." I suppose there will be some people who feel this is indeed wacky. lol

Admittedly, I was bummed out Hugo, when I read your posts that you weren't going to make it this time. Have enjoyed your films and your thoughtful comments on each and everyone's work in the past. You are a good man and I sincerely hope to be seeing your work again in the very near future.

Best wishes~
Bradley

I don't care what Dylan says about the way he rates shorts.
I add two more categories, relationship and dialog.

I loved the relationship in this one, and you got it without any other actors!
"You got a little fledspar in your eye? It looks painful."

Great line, but my favorite was...

"a girlfriend would have been nice."

This short reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite, stupid stuff that you are embarssed to enjoy and find funny.

Oh, yeah, the cinematograpy was beautiful too!

I only got to see about 2/3rds of it because Quicktime keeps crashing when it gets to a certain spot of the video. I tried redownloading and it's still doing it.

Anyway, what I saw of your movie looked pretty good. I've tried making short videos on my own and it's tough to frame them properly, so I was really impressed by how well you did it.

My problem is the same as Mark's: I can't watch the video's full length cause it's crashing after a few seconds, although I've started it from my hard disk drive and I have installed the newest Quicktime player...
Could you please serve another version - wmv for instance?!!

Thank you

Volker

Cinematography and sound were excellent. I thought it was funny. I liked the way you kept jumping around in the scenes. I must admit the stone up the a** was a bit of a turnoff, but how else do you do a guy like that in ???

Mark and Volker - wmv file

So sorry the QT was crashing on you guys. I purchased some software today that allows this mac man to convert .mov to .wmv files. Did a Lo Res version at about 11MB, found a host, e-mailed Dylan to make sure it was within the rules, got approval from him, he posted the wmv link in the finalists section.

Here are the links:

Direct Link: http://ia310113.us.archive.org/2/ite...c5_blm_wmv.wmv

Sure appreciate your time and please let me know if this worked for you.

Best wishes~
Bradley

Thank you Bruce

Much appreciated! Am very happy you liked the sound, the cinematography and thought it was funny. Thank you. Was wondering if anyone might be offended by his undoing. I did want it to be somewhat shocking but also an "innocent accident".

Yes - How else do you do a guy like that in? lol..."In the end, he dies" or is it "He dies, in the END". Hmm.

Look forward to seeing your film as well.

Best wishes~
