    Post Usually found in the graphics department, my first short film behind the camera

    Hi there. I've always been embedded in post production / the graphics department as a motion graphics designer and never taken the chance to make my own film, but saw an opportunity recently and wanted to share it (just a one minute short, something a bit more manageable). It's funny how you think the skill set you have can be useful, and in some ways it definitely is, but there's also the technical knowledge you need in production to execute it (like lighting!), so it was definitely a learning curve. I've also been separate from the narrative part of production, so editing was a battle, making sure the story holds together!

    Thanks for checking it out:

    I liked the cat but I think a few things seemed out of place to me. First was the scene where the cat is out of focus but the pillow on the floor is in focus. The cat is the star, the pillow is just there, why focus on it? Also the sequences of the guy on the floor, his hand, the thermostat and the clock. I don't think those added anything, would have rather had longer in focus cuts of the cat racting, playing or just looking in closeup.

    Thanks for the response, filming a cat, she was all over the place so I was struggling to keep up! I needed that shot as a bridge, but agree about the focus/technical aspect. The clock and thermostat was an indicator for the passing of time, and also the temp drop in the house to unusually low levels, it was meant as an indication of a threat and again, time.
