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

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.  :D

Way too many, in my humble opinion.

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.  :D

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!  :D

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 :D 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.
