Lol, I enjoyed it. Nice job! You just needed more super wide angle close-ups 1' away from your actor's face!

Thanks for watching!
Did the Revenant have those super close ups? I forget. I coulda done those easily

The Revenant took a risk and tried to shift cinema, or cinematography, just slightly. Now you. making fun of it....It's so easy to indulge in parody...so what is irrelevant...perhaps you are..
To be fair, I paused early in your piece. Why would I proceed?

You shouldn't. It's not for you. It is silly, stupid fun and the "plot" is the irrelevant part. I really enjoyed THE REVENANT, and decided to go shoot in the freezing cold for a couple hours to empathize with their production.
No disrespect of the original, my film is a hobbyists experiment. Don't bother with it. Don't be so serious.

Way too many, in my humble opinion.

Sorry man, can't help myself sometimes. (contrite face)

No prob. It gets better with the violent bloody seal attack (ok not "better", but hilarity in its silly unrealism - to some) but, no, it is not for everyone's tastes.

That close up of that mouth spitting blood reminds me early years of Peter Jackson. These few shots make laugh,thanks!

ha glad you liked that part! I hated doing it, and the framing could have been way better.
Serendipitously, it got picked up for 3 overseas film fests! And I just made it for MY fun!

Ha ha ! Great !
Having just seen the other version and was astounded by the close-up wideangle photography, also the seemingly difficult tracking shots. I guess that's one of the reasons they used digital. Leonardo's acting was superb considering the closeness, but maybe the actual cold helped him and the others too.
But I couldnt understand why he preferred the comfort of a horse rib-cage rather than using the branches a few feet away that could have provided some shelter.

Congrats, man! I'll watch The Irrelevant once I finally see The Revenant so I can truly appreciate it.

I can't tell the difference...I feel I've wasted my ticket price on the Revenant now.
