Amnesiac short film

Hey guys,

I’m not sure if I am supposed to post this type of stuff but I recently released my latest short film ‘Amnesiac,’ and I’d love to hear your thoughts. It’s a weird film mixing the twilight zone with elements of film noir. Please feel free to comment and give feedback. Thanks!

Very interesting and mostly well-done.

I was involved in a 35mm film noir project called "Amnesiac A" a number of years ago. It was a lot of fun, though it never got completed!

Also sorry to hear about your project though that’s a bit strange that we share the same name haha

I am thought it was pretty decent. The story was definitely simple enough to tell in just a few minutes. I could tell what the premise was. There are a few things that I felt like you could have done differently. I think it would have worked better with no dialogue. You told it pretty well enough visually that dialogue wasn't really necessary. I think the main problem was just the editing. It could've done without all the detail about the thief and his girlfriend. All we really care about is the amnesiac. Although, if you took all that out, you'd have to add some shots that tell is more about the story. Also, I thought the smiling thing your actors did wasn't really a good choice. It just looked kind of goofy. I wish I could tell you what kinds of shots you could've used but that would be better said if we could have a face to face conversation.
