I've posted two other short movies here. If you want to find them just search my name. The first one was really bad, the second was better. I made a third but didnt post it and now this is my fourth. Hopefully you can comment on it because the comments are really helpful. Anything you have to offer I would appreciate. The movie is split into part 1 and 2 on youtube because it was too long to upload all in one go. Here is the link to
PART 1:




and

PART 2:


Thanks

Okay, so I tuned in for part one of the serial and kinda liked it. Very creepy, very weird, like "Twin Peaks" meets I don't know what.

The strengths are in the editing and cinematography. The weakness is the dreadful acting of all the bit players. The protagonist isn't bad, could be better with some coaching.

I'll have to tune in for part two when I've had some sleep (been a long day).

Thanks for the compliments. I know the acting is really bad but if you have any tips on how to get some better preformances from non actors that would be great
Thanks

There's a lot of good, effective methods. My advice would be to check out the book: "Directing Actors" by Judith Weston.
