    One question. Why? Why make a copy of a video game? It offers no creativity or entertainment.

    Why not? I am free to make whatever I want and I think real life versions of games are entertaining. Maybe try to me a little less negative when giving people feedback dude

    True, but I was just answering his question and advising him to bit a bit more positive in future. I think that's fair enough. As for you, you're not exactly helping me by posting a comment like that. There's no need for that kind of stuff here. I thought this was supposed to be a positive and helpful form? But maybe I was wrong

    no i'm just stating that you ask for an opinion and he gave you one , and now you are getting upset with the response. and as far as what kind of stuff is supposed to be on this forum hmm maybe you should read the tittle under my user name :).

    Yeah and that's why I said true, I have thick skin so it really does no upset me haha if I was up set I would've probably said something that would get me banned from this forum. I'm not trying to argue with you dude, I'm just saying that it's not cool to side with one person while two people are having a discussion. Giving an opinion and criticism is all good once it's constructive criticism, and his was not constructive at all. Therefore I can't take anything positive from what he has said. That's all I need to say, let's not make a big deal out of this. Not that I'm saying you are.

    Not what I'm trying to say, I know you gave no opinion on my post. You just got involved when there was no need to. It's as simple as that.

    well ill be honest with you, i saw it and i agree now its pretty much a copy and not scary at all. there is my opinion. I watched it with my 12 year old son and he said watching Bambi's mom get shot in the was scarier than that video.

    Wow! Seems you will go to any lengths to win a dumb argument that you started. The video wasn't necessarily meant to be scary but just to roughy replicate the game play so.... I think you're only saying that because you are offended that I told you off. I know you're an administrator and all but seriously dude! Get over it! I've got better things to do with my time than argue with idiots like you so.... goodbye

    You know - it's important to explore things like this because it helps you grow creatively. Form a production side - I'd just watch things like shadows. When the POV actor is walking up the stairs you see the helmet and camera in his shadow, things like that can pull you out of the film, so I would work to try and avoid them popping into frame.

    Maybe use the video game scene as a base to build the short film on. There was a lot of walking around with not much happening- And, although that happens in the game, when you're not interacting with the media (ie. using a controller and doing the actual exploring) it can seem to drag on for a bit. If you introduced extra elements during these sections, even just music building tension to pay off in a small jump scare (something that happens a lot in video games too) it would keep the viewer engaged.

    Loved the location, too.

    Hope this helps. If you're even still visiting this forum....

    Great comment Matty! I agree, believe me I was very aware of the shadow from the moment I walked up the stairs. we only had one take at this because there were some kids hanging around the area that we had to politely ask to stay away from the area for 30 minutes haha and unfortunately the sun was shining the wrong way so I had to bite the bullet with that one. I definitely need to make it more engaging and hopefully as I get more people to be in my videos I will be able to have more happening in the build up.

    Thanks for your feedback! I really appreciate it and it definitely helped to hear something constructive and positive :)

    Nice Sound design, I do wish that the dripping sound when you found Mia would continue when your V/O kicked in, it kind of just disappeared, balancing sounds and blending them to be fluid and continuous just makes things more realistic, its like standing on a street corner and a friend approaches you to talk, the sounds of cars passing by or ambient sounds don't just disappear, you might pull focus to the friends greeting, which lowers the volumes of things surrounding you,
    which is why it seemed to be abrupt .
    Other then that I enjoyed it.

    Also I agree about the whole right to create what you want thing, even if you asked for opinions, its just insensitive and aggro for anyone to assume they can just shoot you down, create what makes you happy, if you enjoy your content why should rude people matter? they will keep existing and for what? to get a raise out of you? maybe.. who knows, maybe they aren't happy with they're own creativity.

    Thanks Robert! I actually never noticed that until you said it haha good observation! It's always refreshing to hear from someone like yourself, someone with a bit of common sense when it comes to giving constructive feedback. Unlike those keyboard warriors from before. I bet they don't even make films, they just troll other people's work like the sad losers they are.

    Hey don't worry about it~ Not everyone will have the opinion you saw them having; if anything it's roundabout constructive criticism (yes that does come off as harsh sometimes!). Trying different things out with your camera to refine yourself as a filmmaker is essential, even if it doesn't live up to any expectation or suite a purpose. I have written plenty of cues that basically are just sort of dumb and directionless, but felt content in knowing I went down a path musically I haven't before.

    Bottom line, if you put it out there...they will comment, and hard sometimes haha. Just cherry pick the parts you agree with them on (if any) and use them to refine your work. Nice location by the way for this video, I love the old abandoned building romp, always a creepy setting for stuff like this.

    Also, I don't think anyone with the exception of Robert actually provided a worthwhile opinion. Sure, anyone can drop their pants and shit on something if it suites them. Opinions help the direction, but only when there's an opinion ya know?

    Yeah man I hear ya. I have developed really thick skin over my years of filmmaking so I haven't exactly been crying myself to sleep over it hahaha. I do love a good abandoned location, probably my favourite type of setting to film in. I'm always open to any constructive comments so thanks for taking the time to give your opinion, it always helps and motivates me to make more stuff ;)
