Setting aside that the acting was bad, all the timing was off. You hurt yourself with the oner. Girl walking down the hallway took forever and built no suspense because it got boring. Made no sense when she went into the bedroom and it took forever for her to run away and the Mom didn't notice her even walking in. Then it hardly took any time for her to wake up the other girl. Also why did it take forever for the mom to come out of the bedroom? Then she just waited at the top of the stairs when the girls obviously went outside? Hardly anything made sense. Probably would have hurt your chances at getting the directing gig had the movie gone forward. Thanks for sharing.
This comment is totally correct. The author of the article is either a con-man or severely delusional. NFS should have exercised better editorial judgment before publishing this.
Sorry, bud, but if you think this short has a good chance of getting funded then it shows you have no idea how the motion picture business works these days. You should try listening to the “negative” people in your life. Maybe you’ll learn something.
You’re correct that this still could be adapted into a feature but what I’m saying is that most of the people who would be interested in adapting it have already seen it and they passed on it. Posting this online is a desperation move. Most of the people who matter already saw this short.
Sorry, but that you don’t understand this means you don’t know how movies get funded. Again, if it does get funded it would be a result of some random person with money seeing it and liking it, and the odds of that happening are always extremely low.
Also, yes that’s why I mentioned that the short is better as a general calling card at this point rather than a pitch for a specific project.
Also, it’s fairly easy to see that this concept has no viability as a feature that a general audience would care about seeing. The only platform for a feature version of this would be maybe YouTube Red and they won’t have enough money to fund a high budget concept with a high amount of VFX. That this took six years to complete is not a good selling point.
That this short was posted online is a sign that “Hollywood” already passed on it. This short was already circulated around town and no one took interest. Aside from that, the feature film version of this would require a fairly high budget but any original IP with a high budget will almost never get made anymore. Solid short but it’s life is already over. This serves better as a general calling card.
Lots of weird shots and edits. Good to know even the top level pros can’t make it work when they don’t have all their toys.
