Are you using Wipster? It's an awesome tool for receiving feedbacks. (https://wipster.io/)
Several ideas and crticism came in to my mind while i watched your short film and this would be an easy way to share it with you


In short: the use of the lights and the colorgradeing was beautiful, the sound was great, the background music was good. Some of the camera angles was clever. Obviously you have the technical knowledge how to shoot film.
The first time were i was not looking the technical solutions is were the murderer is looking for the owner of the drone, and we are spying on him from behind of the curtain. The tension was building up.

But there were several unnecessary cuts, unnecessary scenes which are not forwarded the story to it's goal. Obviously you didnt have enough space in the house to get most of the camera angles. Also several question was not answered, and several problems were not solved in the storyline.

Summary: great job, we are waiting for more!

Hi
Love the film and grade is excellent well done. I looking to convert my canon 5d Mark 2 to magic lantern. I want to achieve a similar look to your film but do you recommend I get a Mark 3 instead? Do you also mind sharing what handheld rig you used? Thank you for the inspiration :)

I just don't know what to say!
The way the story is told is clever; the fact that no words were used let the viewer imagine what is happening in the protagonists' minds.
And the color grading is simply genius!

I can't wait to see more.

Thank you!

But so it turns out that we will shoot the feature film with other plot
