    John, this film certainly did have a certain level of creepiness on a whole other level. I can honestly say that I have never seen anything like this before, which means I'm sure to remember it. Honestly, I can't say whether or not I liked it, but as a filmmaker I can certainly respect and appreciate it. Afterall, it wouldn't be any fun if we were all doing the same thing, right?

    As far as the story goes, I thought it was very dark. I felt like the pacing of it was good in some parts, but seemed to drag a little bit in a few places, like when the voice (creature, monster) was talking to the kid while he was sleep. That seemed redundant at some point. Also, I did think the sound fit very well with what was happening on screen.

    Anyway, I applaud you for stepping out the box and doing something different.

    The 'sketch' effect over the whole piece sort of reminded me of an Adobe Photoshop/after FX plugin. It seemed a little much to me where it could be turned down a little. It sort of looked like an "Ah-ha" music video...on crack, though. Good job overall.

    Did you use all original footage or was there some stock footage from old movies in there? I could have sworn I saw some familiar images? If so, I liked it how you combined stock clips to make a story.

    Laters,

    Thanks for the comments. In a real general term, this project was patched together from a zillion different things. God forbid anybody see what it looks like before it was "processed", kind of like some Frankenstein collage.

    There were a couple of characters in the film that were extracted from a couple of ephemeral public domain films because I liked the way they looked. I futzed with them a bit to make them fit within the world of the film.

    Cheers!

    Thank you very much for the review.

    "I can honestly say that I have never seen anything like this before, which means I'm sure to remember it. "

    That statement really means a lot to me and I truly appreciate it. As a filmmaker, or any other kind of artist for that matter, that's probably one of the best comments you could receive, regardless if somebody liked it or hated it.

    Thanks again.

    You have no idea how frustrated I am right now because I don't feel I can comment properly on your project. I have an astigmatism and my eyes actually started to hurt and that frustrated me to no end.

    My mom was an artists and seeing the way you put your storyline together with the 'line drawing' was stunning to say the least but it kept hurting my eyes to watch.

    If it means anything...I cannot look at those 'geometric' pictures that you stare at and finally see something in. I have stared at so many of them and never see the hidden object, be it boat or horse.

    Pardon my lack of real comment and know that I loved what I could focus on.
    Sincerely,

    If I had any say in this, you'd have taken first... and second... and third.

    But there may be other options for your film beyond this forum... but I'm sure you're well aware of that already.

    Congrats anyway though!
