Don't recall if we posted the link to the music video Tim and I produced for the band NUDE (and in which TommyInLA appears). Take a look if you're inclined (click the image on our home page): www.fatmonsterfilms.com.

Hey mark, that video looks pro. I really like the color and the shots are cut well. Nice camera movement as well. I saw you post a few grabs from this and I though it was your Hallows fest entry at the time. Nice work.

Today we learned the band is getting decent airplay on KROQ so hopefully they'll take off and hire us to produce the next single with a bigger budget!

Hi Mark and Tim,
sorry it's taken me a while to get to this one.
I just read your BTS page and I thought the guy falling off the bridge was someone doing a bunjie jump so you totally had me fooled on that final shot. Never knew it was cg. Thats inspiring because I've got a similar shot I want to do for another short. Was that rag doll physics or something on your jumper? True some of the final compositing looked rushed, but you can see the potential it had to be a convincing and polished looking piece.
Get in early next time! because you've got the chops to pull off some ambitious stuff :-)
It's much braver to do what do did than sit on the sidelines like I did.
Hope you're in the next frst, and I hope I can be too!

Note that the 3D render shown there is without the proper lighting or the cloth simulation on the shirt that would have sold it much more than you see there. As always, the only thing that stands in the way of realism is time and, unfortunately, we just didn't have that much of it for this project.
I have a whole bunch of halfway finished effects for this project so I hope to work on it in my spare time along with some of the other still-unfinished effects in past productions.

yep all looked good, but the ending was rather obvious.

I thought the story was okay. It was shot pretty well, and the green screen looked decent but I guess I never felt anything for the character and the ending was pretty easy to see coming?
I think you probably could show the story better if there was more shots of the guy maybe before he goes to the bridge to kill himself.
Or you could start the film with him jumping and then we find out later why.
The main actor was pretty good and the dialogue was solid. Good Job with that.

Hey Mark & Tim, I finally got around to commenting. I really enjoyed the film. It really had a nice feeling of suspense. The bridge jump was very believable. I'm intriqued by the subject. I wrote a short story awhile back about a jumper on the Sunshine Skyway where I live. I think it ranks about number 4 in suicides. Your movie got me interested in the Goden Gate. I didn't realize there was a documentary recently done on the bridge showing the actual jumpers and interviewing their families. That is bizarre and I will have to check it out. I went back and looked at the film after watching it and couldn't believe without the opening and the last shot it was only 1:13 long. You showed alot and told alot with very little screen time. Your energy is unstoppable. Looking forward to see what you guys do next.
