I would really like honest and full bore feedback, I won't get upset if you tell me it sucks

The shots are in chronological order except the last two got flipped. I wanted it to start kinda warm and as they moved toward the windows it became colder. so as said i balanced to the kino and just let the daylight stay blue. also FWIW for some reason it seems darker here than in Final cut or on any of the TV's or video projectors i have tested it on. I wanted it dark but not this dark

Also, just for a comedy, it still looks way too dark. Check out films like "Shaun of the Dead" and others to see how low-key lighting is handled for a comedic-horror type of film

I Have to a agree with Brad & Jonathan that that these stills on there own look way underexposed, it's difficult to asses photographically on
these four stills you would have to post some footage to gauge the mood. The references to Shaun of the dead are good in that low key
lighting is not just about underexposure (that's why its so difficult to do) its about sketching things very subtly and creating a harmonious balance with dark and light, it's the mark of a great photographer in my opinion.
To be honest the c.u. was the only thing i could like. Nice sheen on the nose!
You might also like to look at almost any scene in Blade runner!
