Django Unchained / Red Bull contest entry

So in an attempt to get myself to Comic Con, I entered the Django Unchained emerging artist contest. I didn't win, but I would still like to get some feedback on my entry if possible.

Judge, Jury, Django (Django Unchained Emerging Artist Contest) - YouTube

I directed/shot all of the footage with the silhouettes on a Canon T2i. I didn't have access to a green screen, so I had the actors stand a couple of feet in front of a plain white wall, which I then lit with a few lamps creating a silhouette that I exaggerated in post.

For the chain and close up hand shots I used some green poster board as a really cheap improvised green screen. I was even able to do a passable Lee Van Cleef hand shot (the middle finger is shorter at 0:15) by cutting off a corner of the poster board and wrapping it around the actors finger.

The rest of the video clips and audio were provided. I edited it all together with Final Cut X.
