The Timekeeper

Loved the concept guys. Absolutely perfect idea for fantasy adventure! Humour was great too. But while we're on the topic of the story, why was there so little? For me this film lacked the "quest" bit of a film where the characters are struggling for something. It established the characters and ideas perfectly, and then went straight to the conclusion. Still a good film though, so nice job.

Absolutely beautiful film! The best of the night! The concept was brilliant, truly inspirational. I loved the way it was established also, you took the right amount of time making what would be going on in your movie clear to the audience, and then you went wild with it. The acting was also very real and believable. The only thing that stopped me giving it 10/10 was the ending, from which I hoped for a little more spice, however, the ending as it is was quite clever and still lived up to the great standard of the rest of the film. Lovely stuff guys.

SEVEN YEARS?

Pretty damn good for a one man film. Credit to you for accomplishing this on your own. I thought the acting was great the whole way through, and your location and props were superb. One thing for me was that the ending wasn't that good. I don't like unresolved endings where the main character is suddenly killed off by electricity. I think you could have come up with a more creative ending and possibly a story with slightly more substance. Camera was great for one shot, and I love the lighting. Just one last quick word of advice: the music didn't have to be that loud, and it didn't add much atmosphere. I might have picked a different track, and definitely lowered the levels. All in all very nice though.

One Brick, Two Brick

Altogether a nice film. You took a big risk going for the rhyming considering how long it would take to script and the fact that it may just annoy the audience, but I think it paid off. I certainly enjoyed the flowing nature and laughs the rhymes provided. The voice over did get a bit repetitive and boring for me though.

I quite liked this film. A nice concept for horror, but the script and story got a bit boring, and horror films shouldn't be boring. It started too slowly with all the establishing shots. No matter how beautiful they were they didn't add to the story, and frankly dragged on for too long. I liked your props though, and acting was excellent. An easy thing to improve would have been your sound quality, which wasn't great.

Shed out of Luck

Loved the shots in this film at the start. Credit for trying an interesting interpretation of found footage, but I felt it didn't really pay off. The story was quite clever, but complicated and not always interesting. Like the man's explanation at the end as to why she was there, it was hard to follow, and wasn't clever enough to convince me. Also I didn't get a good impression of who the characters were either.

Going ahead and saying: good concept. Liked the character establishment at the start and the clever ending. Your cinematography was the best of the night. Loved your lighting.

Perfect

Wow you guys, this film oozed style. Great silencer gunshot sound. Great voice over. Great plot twists. It was a "perfect" crime film. The acting was very real, especially the person who did the voice over, really had me convinced. Costuming and set was also good, both gave the impression of an actual heist. A couple of things did annoy me a bit though, one being the amount of people killed, back stabbed and set-up. That whole aspect of the story was confusing and could have been reduced to allow for more wit such as the ending. Camera was all good and the sound was clear too. Lovely folley.

Barrowed Love

I did laugh a fair bit at this film. An interesting concept that dealt with the one shot film nicely. The camera work was a wee bit clumsy but that's what you get with one shot. Also, I could have done with a bit more substance to the story. I would suggest reviewing your script and asking: "Will the audience also find all this funny?" because as it was, I found the joke a bit overdone. However, I loved the wheelbarrow ending.

Twin Dragonfist: The Fistening

Very funny film guys guys. Certainly an enjoyable watch. Best part for me would have to be the stunts. For a low budget 48 hour film, the stunts were great.

Agent Scott: Licence to Love

Great film guys, really funny. Especially impressed by agent Scott's acting. Thing to work on would have been your sound quality.

Harvest

Some good and bad stuff in this film. On the positive side there was: - Some beautiful shots (especially in the tunnels) - Nice realism with the fake blood etc.... - Did have suspense and was exciting And on the negative side: - Story was strange and hard to comprehend motives - Sound quality was not very good (wind noise + hard to hear what people were saying at times) - Seemed more like a thriller than a horror, but that's not a big deal Altogether though a good effort. Well done. The main things to work on would be sound and story.

Chastity Kills Men

Just about the only Dunedin team to pick erotic thriller over superhero movie. So Kudos for having the courage to do that. I was pretty happy with the technical aspects of your film. Crisp sound, good lighting, and nice camera. The concept wasn't that great though, and I do sympathise, it's hard to come up with a good erotic thriller, but I felt the concept just wasn't clever, it was too predictable. With erotic thriller I would have expected to see more humour too. Not that the lack of it was a bad thing, but humour might be a method to add more cleverness into your film. Worth thinking about for the future, but nice film.

Tasty Pain

I think I will be with everyone in saying: wow. Honestly, I would be surprised if you didn't get audience favourite. Absolutely hilarious. But those compliments also come with a "Dafuq?" The strangest film of the night by far. One question I have is: why German accents? Anyway, great film to watch, even if it is crazy.
