    hey all - it was shot with the red rock m2 35mm adapter over one 12 hour period - the effects are a combination of practical real FX and CGI

    Thanks for watching it.

    Love to hear comments

    Good stuff, very sci-fi story with a good twist.
    A lot of detail (photos with and without girl) and care put into this one.

    Hoever for some crtique: you continuety suffered. The girl was missing form the floor in many of the shots, and your blod seeme dot move around too.

    I enjoyed it thouhg, and it had a neat look to it too. Very mystrious.

    thanks - yes continuity was difficult to say the least - shooting in 12 hours with all the makeup effects was challenging.

    Everything looked great to me...camera work, editing, etc.

    The blood continuity was noticable but did'nt pull me out of the story. I allways keep a dig camera with my kit to snap a few photos when makeup or wardrobe can be tricky.

    The problem I had was mostly with the acting. They did'nt seem to be much of a couple - in love - when they got home...the acting was apparent. And he did'nt seem to be to broken up when he discovered her body next to his or that she would'nt be healed. I'de be a really upset if my wife/girlfriend was laying next to me bleading and out cold.

    One tiny note on the stoy...I would have left out the photo of the man alone on the bench. I had all the information I needed by seeing him come home alone with the bags of groceries. I got the movie. But seeing the photo rubbed me the wrong way. I don't know many men who have a photo of themselves in their house. I thought the photo of the couple was a great forshadowing of the "in love" montage. Maybe that final touch, the photo of the man on the bench alone, was too obvious for me.

    How did you like the 35mm adapter you used?

    What lenses did you use?

    thanks for the comments.

    AS for the photo - it was supposed to show that she was removed from all aspects of his life - not that he had a photo of himself - rather that she was removed from the photo - maybe it just wasnt clear enough.

    I loved using the adapter but it takes a little time to get used to - you are focusing with 2 lenses.

    I had nikons 35, 50 and 105 mm

    Very interesting film.

    But it left me wanting to know WHY that guy wanted to shoot them and WHY the other guy came in to save him and WHY he had to get rid of the girl. There's more questions, and I'm all for using my imagination, but there should be SOME sort of explanation to what's going on!

    Of course, if you want to just tell me, it'll definitely help my enjoyment of it.
