watch My film is a Semi-Finalist in Ridley Scott/Youtube's filmfest!

Thanks Cracker Funk, glad you liked it!! I just noticed you're in Richmond (where I'm from) :)
So glad that there are talented filmmakers tearing it up back home. I didn't see anything listed on your profile, do you have a website or anything where I can see your work?

RVA is a great city! I'm native to Seattle, have moved around a lot, but have kinda settled-down in Richmond. It's inevitable that I move back West, eventually, but I'm in no hurry. I don't know how long it's been since you've spent time here, but the long-time residents (I've been here 6-ish years) tell me that the city has changed a ton. VCU is blowin' up, in a great way. Downtown is becoming revitalized, and it's just bustling with all sorts of creative types (and I personally credit VCU, mostly). :)

Anyway, thanks for the interest. A few links (and I guess I should update my profile):

My latest work (could use your vote): http://www.importedfromgothamcity.com/?x=us_seeentries_3048_40

Cheers! I hope you win the contest. :)
 
Wow that was really good. The acting was great. It was pretty realistic. Nice ending too. I thought the girls were attractive. This showed a lot of talent. I was very impressed. Hope you win the contest.
 
Man awesome work ! Totally awesome ! You made the girls look pretty attractive though they were captivated , Thats pretty cool :D and the whole shooting was awesome , Nice camera work ! May the best win !
 
I liked Boot except for the ending. Too much of a downer. I would rather have them live and go to a party. I would suggest changing this film to be a comedy like Superbad. The puke scene was funny. The girls crying at the end seemed fake to me. I would turn this into a longer film and make it a comedy.
 
Hi John

Nice work on SOLD! We both have films in Your Film Festival that feature a ride in the trunk of a car (or 'boot' as we call it in Australia)!

You can check out my films BOOT here: http://www.bateyesandboot.com/voteboot and BAT EYES here: http://www.bateyesandboot.com/votebateyes

Good luck in the comp - it would be great if we both made it to Venice!

cheers

Damien

Hey Damien, Sorry just saw this. Thanks! I saw both your films, EXCELLENT! I definitely hope we both get to go to Venice. I'd love to meet you. Congrats on getting two films in the contest! :)
 
Hey John , Its awesome to see your film in the top 50 ! Voted for it :D
I just wanted someone like you to advice me on film making and stuff .
Well first off , I've currently making this movie called * Rain*
whose trailer can be seen here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_UyGJgKFJk&list=UU8S2qJKtr-LTpdmpQMI0c-Q&index=1&feature=plcp

Just tell me how to improve upon it , The plot is about a criminal wanting to leave evil activities and start a new life but the only thing that comes onto his mind is suicide , Nevertheless he keeps remembering the people he killed , the children he made suffer , and his evil doings ,
but as the event goes on , his mind changes ...
So yeah that was much about the story , Now if you could just advice me how can I improve upon the trailer and stuff , I'll be releasing a new trailer today but anyway man Got inspired by your work ! anyway Thanks :D

Hey Quiltom, Thanks for your kind words about Sold!
I checked out your trailer. Your concept sounds awesome! I would say the only thing for future versions of the trailer and/or for the movie, have more focus on the hero/anti-hero of your story. The clips your main character is in, it's either really quick or too dark for me to really relate to him. I think you need at least one moment in there where we can really get a feel for who he is and to get us to really care about him. Otherwise, it starts feeling like a montage of clips. Hope that helps, sounds and looks exciting! Good luck, looking forward to seeing more!

Thank you ! I would really consider your advice and introduce the main character more in the second trailer ,
anyway ! hope you win !
 
Thanks Movingtarget and Danielassault. Really appreciate it!! :)
Yikes only 5 more days of voting!

I've attached some behind the scenes pics. The trunk scenes were the hardest to figure out how to do. We ended up finding the back half of a taxi cab on rollers that had a hole in the axle and a removeable side. So cool!!
