Hey all.
I just want to say that I read a lot here on these forums and I think as a film making community this place is tops. That being said I'd really like some strong criticism on this film I did.

It's kinda a mystery and I hope you all will like it, and if you don't I'd really love to hear why!

THE RECORDER


Hi, I liked the beginning - there was a sense of the story being really open - and the acting where one chap sneaks up behind him, is quite naturalistic. I think that level is not reached again. The idea of them finding the tape recorder of the future I liked, but it could have been even more kooky - if you pushed the idea further perhaps - it could have been a really strange little self referential loop like they've entered a wormhole in the woods thats sucked them into xanadu. (Actually this happened to me last week)

The camerawork - i am no expert, but perhaps you could introduce handheld shots in a bit earlier, specially when the guy does scare the other, the way they stood seemed quite formal combined with the tripod safeness. I like the revolving shot in the woods...perhaps the ending could have been punchier?/ not sure about them walking - backing off like that...apart from that the idea I liked, could be a springboard for other ideas thats for sure - food for thought and all,

ok thanks for listening to me, r
