The lighting is a tad on the dark side which makes some of the action hard to see. Great one-liner sets it up, but the story seems to need a much longer running time for it too all come together coherently.
I love zombies! This was very cool idea. It's like a 80's B-movie. Black and white fits nice and zombie sounds very good. Did the ass kick go so fast because first time I watched this I didn't saw the kick.
Mmm, spontaneous looking kick. Good. The film doesn't seem much planned in my eyes. The close up is my favorite moment.
Another un-follow-able (word?) zombie flick. Not a fan.
It definitely didn't feel too much like you guys had a clear view of where the action was going. It felt more like a series of random clips stringed together. I'm always a sucker for old school horror though, so I still had a smile on my face. Try writing down a shot list or drawing out some storyboards if you plan on doing a series of action next time, it may help you guys deliver something truly badass.
yeah this is my first time shooting a film without a storyboard - and what do you know, everyone can tell.
I usually love doing storyboards because it makes things go faster, and helps me understand what I want-but this time around I didn't have enough time to make one. : (
Obviously it shows lol.
But can't use not having a storyboard as an excuse for my movies to suck a little bit - gotta make sure it's good no matter what!
I liked it, but it was a little cliche for me. Though, I've been wanting to make a zombie film too, so I can't blame you. Some more effects like muzzle flash would have sold it a little more, but I like the cuts from action to action.
This almost looked like a trailer, but not. I think it would worked with the randomness if it was cut together as a feature promo. Would have liked to see some kung fu. Though, it's nice to see films with alot of extras' so nice job there. Careful with the real' looking guns at public parks. ha!
Meh, not my cup of tea. It seemed pretty cool, besides the fact i honestly had no clue what was going on half the time...
I'm sorry about that.
I'll make sure to bring my storyboard next time. Just didn't have enough time to make one this time around.
Hope you enjoy our next film though!
This has the best in-action use of the kick! It was hard to follow and the writing really seemed to want more than 30 seconds to tell the story. Think through the story and make it more clear, especially the Kung Fu part of the movie. I think I would have liked this in color. Also, careful with the gun in a public place. I have been frisked for having a silver camera box in a park.
The reason why it's in black and white is because we were at a park and my camera happened to die so I wasn't able to film on miniDV anymore. But I had my VHS camera in my car and so we shot the rest of the film on VHS.
But of course the quality of miniDV and VHS is completely noticeable, even if you were to go through a shitload of filters for your miniDV footage to try to make it VHS, it's just not going to mesh.
But in black and white with some grain and saturation, you can barely notice the difference!
i felt it was rushed. but overal a good film
The shots were not cut very well and i wan't a fan of the black and white.If it was longer and it had a good clear story and it didn't have to be 30 secs then it might be good 3/5
I think this would have worked it color, it looks a lot like a trailer though, there's no story really, just killing zombies. Work on story, shot composition is good tho.
