    I DPed a student short film a couple months ago and am curious as to how I can improve my work!



    In case you are a little unread, T. S. Eliot was a famous poet from the 20th century. One of his major works was The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,
    a monologue speaking of a man's feelings of isolation and indecisiveness, written in the form of a long poem.

    Prufrock is a visual rendition of that poem.

    Please let me know what you liked, disliked, and especially how I can improve in the future!
    I already know about the sound drop in the beginning and can do nothing about it.



    Shot with a Canon t3i, using a Tamron 17-50mm lens.

    Very nice--a really solid rendering of the poem. I would have used older cast members, but I'm assuming this is a student project, so I understand why your cast was younger than the poem insinuates. The black and white cinematography was solid and the art direction was bit sparse but still effective. Loved the fact that the crab was missing claws, great capture of the woman's "eyes that fix you in a formulated phrase," and the Hamlet book was a nice touch. Nice work!

    Thanks for the criticisms and compliments! It was done as an application piece for a friend. She applied to a Media Production program and directed the film (and I'd like to mention was accepted! Most people didn't even include a reel, much less produce something specifically for the application.) I agree with the lack of set design; we had a crew of 3 (the director/editor, a PA, and myself) and no money, so I'm not crying, but will try to work on that in the future. The actors were friends, and while an older actor would have been possible to secure, this simplified scheduling and we barely made the deadline as it was.

    Okay, that makes sense. Even with all those limitations though, this is a very effective piece.
