A Ripping Yarn

Steampunk adventure with some fun vfx. I don't really get what the protagonists were up to at the start and everything in the story was quite coincidental but it managed to stay fun. This team knows their steampunk but that seems to overshadow everything else to their detriment, worry a bit more about story and less about having 6 guns going at once.

Fender Bender

He's a murderer! This entertaining day in the life of a hapless fool who thinks he has killed his girlfriend opens with a fun shot of a girl being pushed in front of a speeding vehicle and the effect was pretty convincing considering the inexperience of the team. The cartoonish nature of the story matched the hammyness of the acting to good effect.

The Expulsion

The acting put me off straight away, the principle and the teacher are simply terrible in the first scene so that put me on the defensive for the rest of the film which is a shame. Then when the teacher was in the same bathroom as the kid it made me think "wtf? can teachers use the same bathroom as students?". Then the teacher farted and used the mandatory line of dialogue, a lazy trick that I am sure we will see much more of in this years competition, well congrats guys, you are the first! The kid did a good job, good choice on the film makers part to make him mostly silent. The title cards seem to have been used to allude that this is supposed to be a crime movie, without them it would have been a revenge flick, something it is more successful at being. So not really a crime movie unfortunately. Having said all that I did actually enjoy the film, the kid did a good job, good choice on the film makers part to make him mostly silent.

Panicked Room

I've had the pleasure of seeing all of this teams films at the heats, but this one, oh man I wish I understood it. I think you might be hamstringing yourself with the whole one shot thing because it didn't work at all this time. You'd think with all the extra time doing it in one shot would provide you would at least write actual songs instead of just singing the lines then chucking some uninspired keys under it. The singing was good but only underlined the laziness of the film making, the talent of the singer was not backed up by anything, the song itself sucked and the gag at the end was super predictable. I didn't enjoy this one.

UNPLUGGED

Best use of line in a non dialogue film and closest thing that I have seen to a decent non dialogue film in the comp yet (I have been to 13 heats so far, 10 more to go). Story could have used some refining, punchline was obvious from the get go unfortunately. The bomb scene was out of place, if a bomb is going off earplugs are a bit redundant but I did giggle at the use of computer components as a bomb. Also, earwax, yum.

A Baaaaad Habit

This film was amusing, but not laugh out loud funny, that might just be me not being into stoner comedies though. The simple but effective animation(the characters could almost be mascots for a brand they are that good) was cool but let down a bit by the sound quality. Really impressive that you got this done pretty much on your own Warwick but I have to admit I miss the lego movies!

Merci

The initial chase up until (and including) the drone shot was awesome. Probably the best drone shot I have seen in the competition. But after that the only thing I liked was the use of prop. Setting up Charlie as a creepy stalker from the first shot and then playing that out with the final scene meant that I couldn't like the guy. If their initial encounter had them coming towards each other to remove the stalkyness (and possibly make Annies fall look more convincing) and if the final kissing scene was all Annies work instead of Charlie being rapey, the final shot would have been way more shocking because we would have lost a character we actually liked. The main disappointment I guess is that I know you can do better than that.

Seed

Josh is always hilarious, but he was superflous to the story which was unfortunate. Probably could have been quite chilling if it had focused on the protagonists relationship instead of being side tracked with comedy that was out of place in the setting.

The Solution

When I was handed a pair of 3d glasses I got pretty excited, I put them on and waited in anticipation. The intro was a cool 3d vortex, yay, these guys can do 3d. To bad it didn't work in the actual film. I spent the first 30 secs trying to figure out if the film was in 3d or not (at that point it wasn't), so I missed all the subtitled dialogue resulting in me having no idea what was happening. That meant I had no investment in the rest of the film, and then when the 3d did kick in, it still didn't work. The idea of downloading medicine was fun, but the scene leading up to getting said medicine was drawn out to long. I certainly hope broadband is faster than that in the future. With the right soundtrack it would make a great music video but this film left me disappointed.

Sammy

The actress was great, but the story was a one trick pony. The freeze frame ending was pretty lame, an action shot of the woman stabbing the kid would have been awesome but they opted to ommit the violence for a shot of the sons cake which felt weak. The camera work was also really good.

Hush Little Baby

Unlike other reviewers, I found the musical aspect of this film satisfactory. Great concept, but the use of happy birthday is as far as I know illegal in this competition. Funny and well shot.

The Sock Gap

I have been to every heat this year and I can say at this point, this movie made me laugh the hardest. You guys beat the other rovers hands down, I hope you had a wager on it! Sure there is no real story, but not all art has to have a point. This is like a fever wet-dream from the mind of a wonderful narcissist. The poor production values enhanced rather than detracted. I would have given a 10 star rating but I want you guys to go even further next year.

'SWITCH'

Lasiest use of elements I've seen in a V48 film and no real drama in the story, looked like they tried to cover that up with comedy but the jokes fell flat. Not even Dave could save this film.

Wired

I found this hard to follow, the kids motivations didn't feel clear at all probably because the story line was quite 'cartoony' but the performances were reasonably straight. I can tell that some effort was put into shooting it in that theme, covering the adults face like an old Tom and Jerry cartoon for example, but the tone never really gelled together. If the boy had been a bit more over the top it might have saved it for me.

Threesome

I couldn't figure out what caused the break up, or who actually did the breaking up in the end, I could have sworn he pulled out of the idea and then in the next scene the breakup was back on. Confusing! Good performances when I wasn't being confused and the cast all looked great. Could have used an epic sex scene.

Ascension

Cute story, could have used a bit more work on building the relationship so we could see it "moving too fast" to make the reveal at the end a bit more solid. but overall this was enjoyable. Good job on convincing a church to let you stage a mass suicide! That takes some nuts!

'SWITCH'

Breadcrumbs

Like others, I felt this was turning into a drink driving awareness ad. I feel it would have been better if it had gone that way because then there could have been a point. 'Breadcrumbs' is not a bodyswitch movie, so not coming close to the genre and not having any real point beyond 'try not to be a dick' really made this a difficult watch.

Henchmen

As of seeing 4 heats, this has been my favorite film so far this year. Good effects, fun story, good performances and subject matter close to my own heart. If you like bad guys with hearts of gold, this is for you. The required line of dialog was silly but funny.

Super Self Me

This was good fun, like a bent "Kick Ass" who went from being harmless to homicidal. This kind of movie is what makes v48 hours so much fun.

Breadcrumbs

This was not a bodyswitch movie, there was no bodyswitching at all, just a remorseful guy thinking about how much of a dick he has been. The film felt like it was made by people who read more poetry than watch films because they didnt seem to know what a freeze frame ending was either. Like a lot of others, I felt this was becoming a drink driving ad, and I really hoped it was going to turn into one so there could be a point.

Chasing Tail

Easily may favorite film from Mr and Mrs Jones. While the story elements of a traditional cat and mouse story were quite light, the role reversal of the animals and sexy cat animation more than made up for it. I particularly liked the Dairy Heir gag, it fit really well with the noir style. I do think that you should work with voice actors, I know doing it all yourself is fun but better voice acting would have raised this up quite a bit.

Feilaulau (Sacrifice)

I didnt find the film inspirational, so on genre it failed, but it was still a nice film. Camera person needs to watch flicker from lights (this can be seen and fixed at the time, but only by the camera person!) but appart from that did a good job. Good acting, though I could never be certain because it was subtitled, for all I know it was crap acting.

The Tale Of The Revolting Princesses

There was so much potential in this film, you ladies can all perform that much is clear but like Jay I had a hard time figuring out the characters. I'm pretty sure the 5min time limit might be to blame because a character intro similar to something like Suicide Squad (sorry, its the most recent example I can think of) would have worked really well with the narration style of this short and would have cleared up the confusion early on, plus I am sure you lot would have come up with some solid gags to go along with it. The prison cell was cleverly shot and about half the costumes were good too. I am keen to see what you make next year, but with all that talent on screen I would also like to see some of you split off to work with other teams so a majority of the kickass actresses aren't crowded in the same film.

Dangerous Interchange

Just because using a single shot worked well for you in the past doesn't mean it will work well every year. You lot clearly have some talent, could you show it to us next year please? Metal Wizard appreciates that you used one more shot than last year, but still wants more.

Laid Out

Story was ok but the reunion aspect was very small, it was more of a supernatural revenge flick. good locations.

Puppetry of the Dreamless

Bleak but entertaining. Good core concept that made for some funny moments but let down by bad technical aspects. The tiger was a highlight.

"Perfect"

The ending made me groan, but the song over the credits picked my back up. Some funny as performances.

Stuck Together

Cute and reasonably well put together, but does this actually pass the Bechdel test if the characters only motivation is to avoid being thrown out by a man? Favorite gag: "I'm too poorly drawn to die!"

2023

It was more pseudo-science gone mad, but still a cool concept. I like the ending but having the whole thing as a revenge flick could have been really awesome. Metal Wizard approves of shots that focus on the back of characters heads instead of the lead actresses face, with boom in shot to top it off. Magical.

Guess Who?

A wonderfully silly premise with a suitable style and performances that all fit together quite well. Obviously you guys have a lot of room to grow but so long as you keep your fun sense of humor I am sure you will grow into decent film makers. My main criticism would be that some scenes weren't pushed far enough, Mikes temper tantrum in the "shes cheating" scene could have been way more epic, pro tip, school furniture is really durable, throw that shit.

Nature Calls

Story was definitely secondary here, but I really enjoyed this film. The effects on the boogyman character for zooming his victims away were on the whole excellent, there were a few shots where he was on screen too long which ruined the effect but the effort put in there was still clear. The character archetypes of the hapless victims were pretty spot on. I feel like the last shot should have been the first shot, that might have upped the ante in terms of us worrying about the characters and you still could have ended with the body pile in the cabin. Fantastic makeup, the rapidly decaying victims and the slasher himself all looked movie ready - make a full length supernatural slasher movie please guys!

Broken

I can tell you had fun making this and that's what really counts, but I don't think its possible to be coming up with all those puns and to pay attention to the camera at the same time because your camera technique was pretty terrible. Unlike most films in the competition though, the more I watched the better the film got, the technical failings kind of fall away as the punishment washes over you.

Good Intentions

I'm just going to give 1 star to counteract the fanboyism from someones mum. real rating is a 5. The music was over used, it fit the cuteness of the story but was grating by the end. Well shot, but most of the film should have been a much shorter montage, shorter is better when there is nothing actually happening with the story. Nice ending. I wrote "drugs" down in my notes but I don't know what I am referencing here.

Entropy

Attractive animation of some of the cutest dinosaurs I've ever seen, these characters need their own children's book. The voice acting/recording let it down, and the use of elements (besides the line of dialog) felt lazy.

Mr Nibbles

The cat and old lady combo is pretty much undefeatable. The old adage of "never work with children or animals" was well and truly proven wrong here, fantastic use of both! Seriously, how the heck did you get that cat to perform?! Metal Wizard approves of filming animals pooping, your poop sentinel did an outstanding job.

That's Fab

Good dialogue, acting and atmosphere. We only get to really see one side of the converging story though, seems to be a hangover from having the B story headed by a drugged up (and I am assuming here) prostitute. So I feel this is a fail in terms of being converging. With the exception of being disappointed with the convergence, good film - watching as if its a crime film would be recommended.

Snow Country for Cold Elves

Its pretty hard to fault this team, in fact the worst thing was forced upon them, bloody Wilhelm Scream! Amazingly well shot, superb effects and a perfect subversion of the Christmas genre. Dallas is perfect as a sadistic Santa and Hweiling was a pretty believable oppressed elf who exudes hope. When she spoke at the end I shit bricks. If this isn't a national finalist I will shit bricks all over again for very different reasons.

Henchmen

As of seeing 4 heats, this has been my favorite film so far this year. Good effects, fun story, good performances and subject matter close to my own heart. If you like bad guys with hearts of gold, this is for you. The required line of dialog was silly but funny.

Lights.Camera.Wasteland

Because this was a story about film students and the production quality (mostly the camera, acting and audio) was so low I found this a really difficult film to take seriously. The "bad guy" was ridiculous, and they reused the same location for 2 very different places, and everything seemed way to coincidental in terms of the protagonist running into the people he is looking for accidentally. I couldn't enjoy this film. Costumes, makeup and sets looked great, whoever was in charge of all that did a fantastic job.

The Dig

I spent most of my time trying to figure out the physics of the cup phone, if it was falling into the sky in China why was it also falling into the sky back in NZ? I may never know, this will haunt me for eternity.

Charlie's Psychosis

If you have a single location film and not the right equipment to shoot outside, don't make the location outdoors. Fingers crossed that was a lesson that sunk in for next time. Story wise, you retread the same concepts quite a few times by the end of the film, but you only spent a few seconds on the totally not satisfying ending. Your time would have been better spent flashing back to the breakup or setting up a more satisfying ending. I was about to praise the performance but then multiple times she looks straight at the camera, such a shame and probably could have been dealt with in editing. If it was deliberate, your intention was lost somewhere, if you are going to deliberately break the 4th wall you need to use it to better effect.

A Desire to Kill

The opening scene was brilliant, the old best/worst argument was served really well by the lead actors performance. This team put together a really solid film, high technical proficiency in all areas with a really clear story. While the story was clear I feel there was a dip in momentum when the wannabe killer took on the guise of a clown, he probably should have gone and killed someone instead of doing a silly card trick(a silly card trick that killed someone I could get behind!). And speaking of behinds, I feel like I've seen that butt reveal shot somewhere before... :p

Ballsed Up

Great little film, if these guys re-shot it on better equipment I could actually see it getting into real festivals.

A Time and a Place

A cute idea, with a hart warming conclusion, but not a heck of a lot of substance. Telling the social workers story pretty much just by handing over a photo was really good, but I didn't find anything to really like here.

Con Troll Alt Delete

The major highlight for me was the mouth poos, timed pretty well too because it let you know what was happening as soon as things started to get weird and was probably 1 of the 2 most memorable things Charlie had thought beforehand. Charlie's thoughts though were a bit much. I get that was your way of using the "thoughtful" character, but everyone thinks most of the time so that window into his head didn't really cut it for me with him being thoughtful. It really hamstringed the performance too I think. Having said that I still had fun watching this, if the first part pre the Trolls magic had been shorter I would have had a lot more fun.

Heart of Wire

Let down by the musical aspect, but otherwise watchable, the lead actor was good.

Last Chance Charlie

How you managed to get DQ'd with a film schools worth of resources behind you is beyond me, but your film turned out okay in the end(certainly better than our student effort back in the day). I'm not convinced you made a Rom com since it wasn't a romantic relationship but there were some really nice moments(usually involving spaghetti). Next year you will get it in time and probably make something better, I look forward to it.

Bloody Mary

Felt like "Darkplace", which I love, but would have been nice to have some sort of cohesive story. When I left the cinema I asked myself why there were 2 entries in the horror genre and then I realised that it was just one film with 2 (maybe more) stories.

The Solution

When I was handed a pair of 3d glasses I got pretty excited, I put them on and waited in anticipation. The intro was a cool 3d vortex, yay, these guys can do 3d. To bad it didn't work in the actual film. I spent the first 30 secs trying to figure out if the film was in 3d or not (at that point it wasn't), so I missed all the subtitled dialogue resulting in me having no idea what was happening.

The idea of downloading medicine was fun, but the scene leading up to getting said medicine was drawn out to long. I certainly hope broadband is faster than that in the future. With the right soundtrack it would make a great music video but this film left me disappointed.

The Somnambulist

Very well shot, good acting and amazing use of sound effects. Loved the makeshift set - though they were lucky they shot it so well because in the hands of a bad DOP or on a bad camera it would have come across as cheap instead of clever. Story was minimalist, and not really in the good way. I look forward to seeing these people with a genre they are more comfortable telling a story in.

Strength Through Adversity

Thank people on the forums, not on here it fudges the stats! As far as collections of sketches go this is an admirable effort, some hit the mark perfectly and some needed some reworking (the Morgan scene sticks out as a low light) but the highs beat out the lows. After last year, seeing the same awesome team intro for the second time, I hoped for a new awesome team intro this year but was left watching the same joke for a third time. You lot have proven your comedy chops, I am certain you can come up with something as good or better, it would be a real treat to see something else next year.

Beard I be without you

Protagonists are usually supposed to make some personal changes in a quest film and I dont think this guy did make any changes, but the moral of the story was not lost on me so I am going to be nicer in the future to make sure my beard doesnt run away on me. Pretty gutting that the required line was inserted in a half assed fashion in the first few seconds only to be repeated brilliantly in the song. Good man for being willing to shave of that magnificent beard!

DAS BEAT

Very cheeky use of genre, but that suited the team and their style perfectly so that is a plus. For a film about music, the sound was terrible. Get a soundy on your team next year PLEASE. Alternatively, fire the person who was in charge of sound. The only sound issue that they DIDN'T have was sync, every other fluff up was present. Some funny lines muddled with bad acting and video, this is what I came to see. Would have rated higher had sound not been such a distraction.

Alcoholics Anonymous

A bunch of liars try to figure out who is telling the truth. I can't find anything to complain about here, really funny and they must have worked really fast because we ended up with one of their actresses in our film reasonably early in the evening. And really good use of mystery, I've had it 3 times and didn't come anywhere near the quality of this story. Great job.

Silent Night

Interesting use of scene transitions. Bad piss gag that didn't fit with the rest of the film (I'm pretty sure the residue from the strawberry milk would taint any sample, and good luck getting it to the lab that way). Nice idea and shot in a really appropriate way for the tone of the film, I could see this detective investigating a slew of holiday related supernatural murders.

Healing Water

I didn't pay attention to the genre until looking at the review site just now, and to be honest I didn't pick up that the story had taken place over 10 years, probably because if either of those girls were taken 10 years ago Sean was playing a paedophile yet again. Good performances and the pacing/editing was fantastic. Shot really nicely too. The ending, dont think I liked it tbh. Ive seen too many documentaries about this sort of thing to find the ending believable. All the interior scenes with the girls were great.

Lights.Camera.Wasteland

Because this was a story about film students and the production quality (mostly the camera, acting and audio) was so low I found this a really difficult film to take seriously. The "bad guy" was ridiculous, and they reused the same location for 2 very different places, and everything seemed way to coincidental in terms of the protagonist running into the people he is looking for accidentally. I couldn't enjoy this film. Costumes, makeup and sets looked great, whoever was in charge of all that did a fantastic job.

pulse

Really needed a story, without one the effects used were pointless.

Tomcat Down

One of the only films in the screening room that I actually wanted to watch twice. The reflections in the visor only stuck out to me on the second viewing, and the green screening fit tonally quite well. I hope it was as fun to make as it was to watch (that's a compliment, it was a fun watch).

string

I liked this film, overall it looked great, had both light and heavy moments(neither of which felt out of place) and they made me actually feel something for the characters. The suicide prevention was awesome, cringe worthy! The only thing I could point out here is in the scene when we see the protagonist get up to go for a walk, we see the masked figure in the mirror before he leaves for quite a while, it would have been much creepier if the figure had appeared AFTER he closed the door instead of disappearing after he closed the door.

Fleeced

[Heat Review]Pretty hard watch with baffling use of prop, terrible audio and a fight scene that could easily have caused a car crash. Fingers crossed you didn't get in any trouble for that, if I saw a brawl in an overbridge the cops would have been called for sure. The biggest issue though was the inconsistent tone. One second it would go out of it's way to be silly and then it would be dead serious. Dialling up the silliness probably would have worked here, seriousness just didn't work. [Screening Room Review] The extra 2+ minutes of footage help the edit out a lot, it makes more sense and lets the first older bloke really shine. Its not a 48 hour film though(as per the rules it needs to be under 5 minutes long) so I have to stick to my first rating sorry.

What Kind of Day Has it Been

The bad audio was quite distracting, but some interesting shots (mostly of the guy calling into the interview) helped out a bit. I don't know what he was trying to achieve with his phone call though, I get that the interviewee was a bit on the blonde side but the caller didn't stop her from saying anything silly, the assistant who was on the phone was capable of sorting that situation himself (which he did anyway). Because of this pointlessness, it was hard to engage with what was happening. I do appreciate the political message of this film, but it could have been handled better.

One More Note

As always a solid effort from Une, but that was not a horror film. It was presented like a horror film, and it had the makings of a horror story but it just ends before anything happens. It was funny, but still didn't manage horrordy either. I missed the use of the prop unless you count the inconsequential woollen sweater. I still enjoyed this film though, and the actresses performance was top notch.

Bloody Mary

Felt like "Darkplace", which I love, but would have been nice to have some sort of cohesive story. When I left the cinema I asked myself why there were 2 entries in the horror genre and then I realised that it was just one film with 2 (maybe more) stories.

Spearhead

I agree with Eyeball in terms of the production values and characters, but I don't think this had a coherent story, nor was it much of a horror. Sure it was a disturbing change in tone, but the change made no sense, why is one of her dates in on this? And who is she? The central character isn't developed at all in stark contrast to all of her dates. There is no tension, a little bit of foreshadowing (beyond your audience knowing this is supposed to be a horror) might have helped a lot, a question to the guys about recent disappearances and how it makes them feel or something. I would have loved to rate this higher based on the characters but the failing of hitting the genre and major tonal shift were pretty unsatisfying.

Claymore

Making fun of domestic violence is risky but they pulled it off, lots of awkward giggles that turned into genuine laughter.

Good Intentions

I'm just going to give 1 star to counteract the fanboyism from someones mum. real rating is a 5. The music was over used, it fit the cuteness of the story but was grating by the end. Well shot, but most of the film should have been a much shorter montage, shorter is better when there is nothing actually happening with the story. Nice ending. I wrote "drugs" down in my notes but I don't know what I am referencing here.

Vic Meyer: Neighbourhood Crime Watch

Started out ok but lost its way by the end. The lead was a bit of a dick but that was what was good about the film. A bit more practice and these guys could start making some genuinely funny films.

Pinscow's Entry

Didn't give any thought to the "film within a film" genre resulting in a complete lack of story. The team obviously wanted to make a horror, and they did but only because of the tropes they included. I can appreciate a team having fun making a film, but it didn't translate to a fun viewing experience sorry.

HarpsApocalyptic

This was my pick of the heat, the ridiculousness of the situation wasn't lost on the team and they hammed it up to the right level to have some decent laughs. Best use of the Harper character in the heat. I hope his V addiction isn't auto-biographical, I want to see more and diabetes is a terrible disease.

Charity Run

Probably the best shot film of the heat, packed with gags and good performances. Using the required line twice was a mistake because the first time it was used was super weak, but the second time was perfect. The start was a bit slow and the hero of the story isn't at likeable at the start so it's a little harder to get into than it should have been, but as soon as the charity man turned up the whole audience was in.

The L Word

Silly fun. Worst girls kiss ever but thats a good thing, very effective/funny!

Super Self Me

This was good fun, like a bent "Kick Ass" who went from being harmless to homicidal. This kind of movie is what makes v48 hours so much fun.

Chums

Very funny and well shot. I didnt understand why the friends would have gone out and investigated the obsessive friend but otherwise I was happy watching this film. Had the single best line of dialog of the night.

DMZ

could have done with the zombie actually eating the brains, wouldnt have affected the story and would have been extra gross out factor which which is what this film needs. The dick wasnt gross enough, some fake precum lube would have done the trick.

The Sock Gap

I have been to every heat this year and I can say at this point, this movie made me laugh the hardest. You guys beat the other rovers hands down, I hope you had a wager on it! Sure there is no real story, but not all art has to have a point. This is like a fever wet-dream from the mind of a wonderful narcissist. The poor production values enhanced rather than detracted. I would have given a 10 star rating but I want you guys to go even further next year.

Best Buds

A very strong opening to heat 14, which is ironic because this film didn't start strong. The opening was a little awkward but I was won over by the end of the first minute. Well shot and the locations were perfect for the film. This team has great comic timing and the actors that had to play it straight did a great job too. This was very much an origin story, I would really like to see what kind of trouble those ladies would get into further down the track.

POLITICAL CORRECTIONS

I really enjoyed this film, it danced around the issue it was raising and never explicitly told us what she was in trouble for, but that's GREAT because it didn't need too. We could tell because of the excellent performances - the tension was palpable. I'd love to see another case for the Department of Political Corrections because if you treated another topic this way and pulled it off we would be seeing some real talent here. It was shot quit well, the location was nice to look at, the costumes all worked. The only technical aspect I wasn't a fan of was the computer scanning shots, but I am sure that can be improved upon later. Good job guys!

A Grave Mistake

Amazing visuals but no actual story beyond "sex in a grave yard leads to death". If the story could live up to the visuals it would have been amazing!

Interstellar

Very well shot, but I had no connection to the characters so it was only an idea for the beginning of a good story, not a good story. I would have to watch it again to pick up on the required line and to figure out which one Nicky Brick was, and I dont want to watch it again so soon.

Safehouse

I liked the setup of the dystopia, the radio interview pumping into the location that the story takes place in was a good idea and was executed really well but it fell apart after that. There was one particular dolly shot that I really liked, up until you went for a pan on the dolly, your setup couldn't pull that off, it might have even looked better as a hand held shot. The story didn't really tie into the dystopia, the characters weren't likeable and the resolution was not at all satisfying.
