That's true... I've still enjoyed all the content on the other side, just at varying degrees relative to the expectation set by the headline.
In all honesty, I'd read most articles on here anyway, regardless of title. I already trust that the NFS team have a well balanced quality filter. I'd imagine most of the other avid readers feel the same way.
Not trying to be a comment section whiner, either. I love this site, it's a daily reader for me.
That was simply stunning. It's a doco that feels like the trailer to a brilliant blockbuster feature film, but still holds together as a self contained story. Love it!
One thing, the clickbait titles lately have been making it hard to differentiate between what truly is "mesmerising" and what's just hyperbole designed to draw views. Compare this to the "best short film you'll see this year", and I'd already consider this the best short film I've seen this year. I think it's worth toning down some of the enthusiasm in headlines, or you run the risk of becoming "the headline that cried wolf - and you won't believe what happened next!" ;)
Thanks for sharing!
I heard that CD does some weird clip-splitting truncation, so there are a whole bunch of separate files to deal with in post. Is this true across the board, or just one person's experience?
Why do you think the director needs more time with the basics? I'd say the basics for directing consist of leading a team with a clear vision and getting strong performances from talent. As far as I've read, Sophie never mentioned any lack of qualifications on that front.
Just because a director understands the pros and cons of shooting raw or not doesn't dictate how well they can tell a story. It dictates how technically proficient they are.
And short films aren't for everyone. You can make a feature and learn a lot more from that than you can from making short films which have an entirely different pace and quality to larger films.
You mean "Batteries Not Included" (1987)? Classic film! One of my favourites as a kid.
Niiiiiice. I've been thinking about a relatively similar option for years but never bothered to put it into action. Glad they did. Simple solution, but it's a big help.
