Comic book thing at the beginning with the realtor - yeah, that wasn't on purpose. Not sure what caused it...Originally Posted by Envision
What do you mean by further color correction?
ADR in room - yep, that was ADR as was everything. When I was lining up the dialogue, I noticed some of it was a little off and kind of liked the way it looked - it made it look a little more cheesy and forced. So I left it.
Glad you caught the bumper thing - I didn't really like the way it turned out - didn't feel overt enough...
Thanks for your very detailed comments! I appreciate it.

I addressed the tone of the ending in a post above. We wanted it to be very abrupt and uneventful to contrast with the lighthearted feel of the beginning - almost like a let-down. So that's the reason for no big fight scene or anything more eventful at the end.joey

The short was directed by a girl and photographed by a boy. Not much more to it than that .joey

Best gotcha ending of the fest, in fact the only gotcha ending that worked for me. The sudden shift in moods at the end gives you this unhappy, tingly feeling which is really top-notch. Good plotting.
This film was talk-heavy. Especially in the opening minutes, too much was said and not enough was done. When you did get to action later on in the film, it felt a little mistimed. We have to find out much sooner these are super-people, otherwise once they start doing super-things it's not easy to accept.
Once they get in costume and start doing their thing, this film really begins to shine. The set is fantastic, and the costumes get the point across very nicely. I would have preferred a bit more build-up before the heroes got beaten, but five minutes isn't much time to play.
Thanks for the film, and best of luck.

this film had a real high production value and some of the best cinematography in the fest. I really liked the lighting when the heroes are sitting at the table in garage.
as for the "flat" look, i appreciated the look you achieved. it was consistent with a suburban feel and no over cc'ing was a great decision.
Also i really liked the whole neighborhood thing, that superheros all live near each other.
Due to my personal taste, i didn't really like they way the heroes walked with that quirky motion in the wherehouse (last scene). it was overdone for me, but it i'm sure that's what you were going for.
if i recall correctly, you used the hvx. you really made it shine. there were some shots that, to me, looked like 35mm.
Oh, the lighting was great too. congrats on your film.
