Andrew Zhou (Level 3)
Wow, very very nice.Of course it'd be better if during the dark scenes (in the barn) there wasnt that blue veil, but thats fine.I did think for a while that perhaps he was a boss in a rival mob or something. If you could drive the audience towards that, and then throw in the contrast at the end. That might be better.Acting-wise...you found the right people xD
Audrey Webb (Level 5)
I think my only piece of (hopefully helpful) criticism would be to tighten up some of the black screen time. In a piece like this, when you don't know how it will end, the black screen makes the viewer think the film might be finished before it really is.Excellent camera work, great look and feel, right from the opening credits.Well cone!
Ayal Pinkus (Level 5)
Very first thing I thought was "Reservoir Dogs", it has this kind of macho-ism, tough criminal men. Which is a good thing! The atmosphere was gripping. The movie is very much about that.Love the mood suggested by the film-noirish strong chiaroscuro lighting.Camera work is handled well, great framing, each image a great composition (but that seems to be the case with all the movies here). Staging is done well.The acting!All actors did well, but amazing acting by that girl!!! Can she really cry on demand? Her crying in the hospital was amazingly convincing. The story felt weakest part, and left me with questions. Is he a cop? What will happen now, will he get caught? Will he retire, and go back to his family? Why hasn't his family left him already? It didn't feel like the end.All in all a great movie!
Bill Clar (Level 5)
I like the bumper of your film company. Very creative.Title: I'm glad you changed it. "Broken" really fits the story. Cinematography: The opening scenes grabbed me right away. The fog. The lighting. It's fantastic! The desaturated colors really paints a bleak picture.A big thumbs up for the sunrise at 4:25. Editing: I like the slow pace. You're not rapidly switching camera angles. You're letting the suspense build and the moment sink in.Score: Excellent. It sounds like a modern day western. Very somber and moving.Acting: Vince does a good job but the daughter steals the show. Script: I thought the narration would grow stale, but it doesn't. I was kinda hoping he would narrate the entire film; make it seem like a poem.Credits: Nice use of film images. It has a noir feel to them.Overall, it's a great film.
Brian Howell (Level 5)
Extremely high production value! It was shot beautifully. The acting was very good. The editing enhanced the story. I have nothing to say against this. Simply EXCELLENT. The writing is dark and realistic; and there's even a twist. I loved this one. Nice work.Also, a note about the end credits... These credits were fantastic. A combination of the slow crawl (slower than usual), and the still images, had me paying attention to everything. Nobody pays attention to the credits (including me), but I did on these ones. And the song that played during the credits was perfect for the film, and a really cool song (I don't suppose it's anywhere for download...).EXCELLENT!
Brian Wind (Level 5)
Script - I gave the original script a VG. My only two recommendations were a title change and a small bit of clarity regarding one of the characters. 4/5Performances - All very solid. I didn't see anything at all that looked amateur here, which is extra impressive because you had a kid crying. Great work to everyone in the film. 5/5Cinematography - Great work here. Good lighting and clearly a very high quality camera. Sets all looked good. Top notch. 5/5Sound - There were a few spots in the film that I thought the score came in too loud, but all the dialogue was leveled nicely. 4/5Editing - The pacing was great, transitions were smooth. Punches and gunshots looked credible. The montage of memories at the very end was well done. Nice work! 4.5/5Score - Well done and perfectly incorporated in to the film. The song over the end credits fit the tone perfectly. 5/5Direction - Before I even watched the film, I was glad to see the title change since that had been one of my only 2 complaints about the script. After watching the film, I was glad to see the clarity I was looking for found it's way to the film and erased my other one. There were some beautiful shots in here. The rooftop against the sunset stood out as spectacular. The intro was very well done. All around great job. You made a really cool film. 5/5 Script - 4/5Performances - 5/5Cinematography - 5/5Sound - 4/5Editing - 4.5/5Score - 5/5Direction - 5/5Overall = 32.5/35 = 4.64/5 = EXCELLENT
Caroline Coxon (Mod Emeritus)
Stylish opening sequence.Like the way the door closes leaving everything in blackness.Love the circle of light and the chair.Brilliant soundtrack - perfectly fits the tone and the mood.Fabulous acting, directing, editing, pacing and effects.I thought this was excellent in every way but I'm going to have to refer to the script to see what on earth the ending was...NOW I see. Hmmmm. I like to have to think and puzzle but...
Chris Keaton (Level 5)
Notes- Nice music.- Great acting!- He needs to aim up.Nice! This is my favorite so far. Top notch production, acting, directing, a complete film. You should be proud Travis. You get my first and only Excellent.
Chris Messineo (Founder)
SCRIPT: It's been a long time since I read this script. I remember loving the style, but being a bit confused by the story. I read it again today, I still love the style. It's awesome and it reminds me of great Film Noir scripts, but the story still leaves me scratching my head a bit. A cop loses everything and so he kills a man he blames for it (no matter how incorrect he might be). It's dark, but it provides no answers to the real questions the story raises. It almost feels like the beginning to something much bigger and I wish it was, because I think with more of an arc, with more insight into where this man has been and where he is going this could be awesome.PERFORMANCES: The actors are very good - professional - I felt their pain.CINEMATOGRAPHY: Phenomenal. Top notch. Full of style and elegance. I loved it.SOUND: Fantastic. I didn't notice it (the best sound compliment I can make).EDITING: Excellent editing. It all had a great flow and pace. The only thing that felt off was the end credits, which were a tad slow, but that is a minor complaint (although I do love the black and white images - very cool).SCORE: I love it all. The song at the end is great, gravelly and rough and absolutely perfect for the film.DIRECTION: Professional and first class. The director has a vision and a steady hand. I have nothing but praise.OVERALL: This is hard for me. Cast and crew are all excellent. The entire film is slick and polished. I just don't find myself engaging with the story - maybe that is my fault - I normally love Travis's scripts. Even with the story, everyone involved should be very proud - this is a first class effort. Well done.
Claire Fishman (Level 3)
WOW. This was really, really well done. The lighting and music worked so well with the piece, and the acting was fantastic, too. The blood makeup looked great. I really liked how, after Vince was shot, he even had blood pooling up in his mouth. It all worked so well together.My only concern was the beginning credits. While I enjoyed the establishing shots, I felt it set the wrong tone; more of a horror feel than a dramatic, suspense feel. A really great job done to everyone involved.
David Birch (Level 5)
great film...what can i say...really professionally done...wish it could have been a little longer so as to get into some backstory with the wife, child, and what was behind his motivations...thought the score was pitch perfect...great job!!...really terrific!!!
David Laffey (Level 3)
Wow - very professional, loved how it was shot (looked like a hollywood movie/pro film), great soundtrack, tense, great acting, and I enjoyed the V.O.Simply there is a lot to like about this short - it was cool, maybe it had a "guy richie" feel to it, I dunno.If there is something to do differently...well lets look at the story - a guy gets shot, loses his "image" (family), and kills his shooter. ...I want to know why he was shot and why his family left him...more importantly why his family left him..it may be more powerful if the original (bad guy) shooter threatens his family, his family stays by his side while he's in the hospital, and then he goes to kill the shooter for revenge and to protect his familyThe story has an opportunity to be deeper than just "revenge"pretty cool
David Schroeder (Level 1)
'Broken' was excellent. From the opening to the credits, it was riveting. The director of photography, the V.O., the cuts, the music: excellent. From script to the entire cast and production team, I was very impressed. These are the kind of people we all want to work with. What else do they have. How can they be contacted?
Elias Farnum (Level 5)
Now that was just too awesome, damn. I remember the script, and on film, it jumps to an excellent. You can thank production values for that all around. I enjoyed the story, Travis. I was entertained, and it did not drag at all as a narrative, great imagery. I think that the twist here was there really wasn't one, (to me) to contrive anything else isn't needed. No forgiveness.The performances were excellent, is it fair to use professionals in an indy film? Really, really, excellent.The pacing/editing was excellent. Top notch cinematography, damn. The score, oh yeah. I love the title song, the vocalist reminds me of Captain Beefheart. This was too slick, the sound boomed through my home theater, and I got to watch, (on the widescreen) what is sure to be somewhere in the winners circle.Awesome, "excellent" job, what a crew you got goin' on here!(I've shown a few people this. I keep coming back wanting to bump up the score, but it's already as high as it can go. Damn.)
Faith Friese Nelson (Level 5)
I was impressed with how well the music was timed with the actions of the actors. Interesting use of the voice over. Very good job.
Fred Koszewnik (Level 5)
The visual images of the opening and closing sequences are amazingly strong and graphically engaging. The film is aptly titled "Narrative" but the length of the voice over dialogue seemed word heavy and bogged the story down.
Heather O'Connell (Level 4)
Really well done. It's a dark story, lots of tension. I like the film effects, the music suits the mood of the film. The actors did a great job, and the voice over pulled it together really nicely. Very Good.:) Heather
Heidtmann Oppong (Level 4)
A real thriller, fabolous, beautiful....I loved it. Felt like I was watching a real life kinda event. The flashback, premise, plot, everything was just wow! The script and video...just excellent, perfect. Good job!
Herman Chow (Level 5)
WOW, I love everything about this. This really rises above the pack and I'm sure it'll place, if not, win.Nothing much to say, really. The script, performances, cinematography, sound, editing, score, and the direction are top-notched.The actors delivered the best performances I've seen in this month's shorts.The cinematography is amazing. Love the balcony scene in front of the sunset.The score delivers powerfully at the correct moment.Loved it.EXCELLENT!
James Hughes (Level 5)
This is one of my favorites of the contest. I liked the feel of the images and the sound / music. You created a good mood for the movie. The opening shots were cool. I liked the couple of times that the music kicks in for his closing remarks in the opening scene and in the hospital. Cool shot of him trying to kill himslef. I liked the last line and last shot. Really good acting. All around this was great.
James Resendes (Level 2)
Wow. Fantastic. That was just brilliant. It took me a minute to process everything, I was just in shock as to what I saw. Everything was expertly done, especially the portrayal of the main character. And just the little things (lighting, sets, sound) were so meticulously done that the entire film just flowed so well. Again, great job.
Jamie Collins (Level 3)
Nice film. The characters pain came across nicely. Very dark images make this a great revenge film.
Jeannie Sconzo (Level 5)
Very good! The production value on this short puts my submission to shame. The shots were beautifully artistic and that was obvious right from the very beginning.Score was fantastic. Acting good. The only thing I may have changed was the cold lighting used the hospital. It was contrasting from the rest but perhaps a bit too much so. I'm a fan though.
JeanPierre Chapoteau (Moderator)
You know that was cool. You got the whole Noir feel going on. I loved it. Directing: directing. It was phenomenal. That scene with him about to off himself with the sun in the background. Classic. The chair getting thrown in the circle of light in slow motion. Beautiful. And I love how dark everything was. Ss cool. I also enjoyed the opening shots of the chains and axe. Those were excellent. Acting: The actors were amazing. I believed every second if it. Were they your friends, or did you have to look for them? Sound: The sound, the sound... I just realized how important that is. Your voice over sounded so crisp. So did the gunshot. And I loved how you portrayed that there was an ambulance with just some light and sound effects. I clearly knew they pulled out a stretcher just by the sound. Great job on that.Music: I loved the soundtrack. Was it original? When the main character pulled out his cellphone, I didn't see the point of the music elevating, though. I actually think it should have gone dead silent. But when the girl walked away with her mom, I loved it. It fit perfectly. Great job on that. The story wasn't that powerful by itself, but I loved the dialogue. It was classic noir. Great film. I'm giving this an excellent.
Jeff Ferry (Level 4)
Great opening credit sequence. I thought the performances were all very good. I thought the little girl was particularly effective. Although the whole story has a jumpy slanted reality view I really enjoyed it. I almost wish it was padded out another 2-3 minutes to really flesh it out. I enjoyed it.
John Padgett (Level 2)
WOW! Great job!Music/audio: Great job, it sounded 100% professional and it fit the mood perfectly.Acting: All the actors did a wonderful job, especially the little girl.Cinematography: Excellent, the coloring, the lighting, the angles, amazing.Overall: 10/10. Fantastic job!
Kenneth Hurd (Level 4)
Your film is really engaging! You had me hooked as soon as the opening shot came on the screen! I feel that your story is good, but I was feeling a bit confused throughout most of it. My biggest question was what was this guy doing that got him shot, so I'm glad that you answered it at the end of the film. I was starting to suspect that he was a police officer, but wasn't sure until the end of the film. My only recommendation as far as the story goes is to give us more reasons for this character to end up the way he does. Why did he lose his family? Was it the stress of the job that made his family leave him?Your cinematography is where this film really shines. I could tell from your opening title sequence that this was going to look great. I really liked that you chose to frame this one in a 2.35 aspect ratio. It added to the atmosphere of the film. Your colors were excellent and solid. Good work!Your sound work was excellent as well. Everything technical about this film was very professionally done. My only complaint was that I felt some of the music took me out of the intensity of the movie. I wasn't sure what to feel when a rock soundtrack started playing during what I thought was supposed to be a very emotional scene.Your editing was good and it moved at a very fast pace; however, your credits are going to hurt this film from screening at many places. I could go along with there being an opening title sequence since it looked so good, but I think you could have made it a bit quicker. Your closing credits are way too slow. Your audience will get up and walk out of the screening if they have to sit through slow moving credits like that. With a 5 minute movie, you really don't need to add an additional 3 minutes of credits. With a short, remember that you want to get in and get out with your film and it'll go a much longer way.That said, this is a really good short film, but I think that with a few edits it could be even better.
Khamanna Iskandarova (Level 5)
Very nice Sound, and cinematography. The actors did a wonderful job. And it would be very enjoyable movie if I understood it. At all. I watched it twice, I did not get what happened. I had to read the script for it. It happened one other time too, with the other movie but that one had a hint on what was going on and this movie doesn't. I get it he reversed the past by killing his own killer? The script is wonderful and very well written but I don't think it translated into a movie well. I don't have any suggestions though, I'm not a filmmaker. So I rate it good. I do think however that this one would do very well, perhaps place, people are in love with thrillers and if they read the script before watching it they'd understand right away.
Kirk White (Level 5)
great style! Wasn't sure of the significance of the "you're a cop" reveal but enjoyed the film.
KP Mackie (Level 5)
Powerful performances from the actors. Like the tightness of the shots, and the efficient editing. The voiceover works.Had some trouble with the story. Don't discover that this guy is a cop until almost the end. When he's laying on the ground, after having been shot, there's something on the right side of his chest. Couldn't make out after several viewings if it was blood or a badge. Might serve to specifically define his story if it's clear up front that he's law enforcement. Would add even more tension to the hospital scene with the wife and daughter. No one sits in the chair until the end; it may not be needed so early. The single shot of the bad guy loading bullets into the gun is dramatic; probably don't need the closeup of the gun too. Putting the gun in his mouth is compelling, but it's implied that he lives for his daughter. Not sure he needs to consider ending his life "...finish that job" could be the revenge.The music is passionate and adds almost another character. Pictures and recap with the music while the credits roll is terrific.
Margaret Avnet (Level 4)
Everything in this movie came together so well. The writing, acting, direction, cinematography and lighting. One tiny blimp. It would have been good to know who Vince was and why there was a hit out on him. Is he a drug dealer or a cop?I loved the use of lighting, from the sun setting in the suicide scene to the scene where Vince exacts his revenge.For someone so young the actress who played his daughter did an exceptional job. And the actor playing Vince plays his role at an understated level not over the top, which really works.The use of the voice over worked really well here. The only real dialog that you really need was at the end when Vince's "target" was begging for his own life.Excellent job!
Margaret Ricke (Level 5)
Wow, Travis! Excellent work! I like everything about this... The acting is so good. The little girl is amazing!The lighting is really well thought out and executed. The framing couldn't be better. Same with the editing. The titles and music are great...This is gritty and emotional and I like it!Excellent work.
Marko Trcic (Level 2)
Bravo. Congratulations director of photography, an excellent job and there certainly is talent, voice over is great idea and I really like the actors are good and generally the whole movie I like. Excellent work. He immediately noticed that everything was done professionally.
Marnie Mitchell Lister (Level 5)
I thought this team did an excellent job. I was so impressed by the camera shots and direction and...the lighting. The lighting was amazing. Really added to the mood of this peice. The sun light shining through the gun was very powerful.EXCELLENT work!!!
Martin Jensen (Level 5)
This looks very professional. The voice-over worked really well with the slow motion, gritty shots. One small point: I think the credits are too slow at the end. Excellent.
Martin Lancaster (Level 4)
Excellent!Great production values, acting, lighting, cinematography, audio, colour grading, effects, locations. It's a simple story, not all that original but the voice over and performances really draw you in. Fantastic job all round.I guessed it was a DSLR, I see it was shot on the 7D. You really played to the camera's strengths.
Matias Caruso (Level 5)
This was awesome. Everything looks very pro.Loved the voice over (could be trimmed a bit though) it gave this a Sin City feel.The plot is straightforward and a tad predictable (cop gets shot, so he finds the guy and shoots back) but the wife leaving him added a nice emotional layer. The execution of the premise was pretty cool. Lots of style here.Good job, Travis, and everyone involved in bringing this to life.Hope it does well.
Matthew Fettig (Level 5)
Good cinematography. Decent editing. I think the pauses/stops in the being might have been overused just a tad - director's choice or editor's choice? Sound was crisp and clear.I was a little lost in the story though. It wasn't real clear why the cop was being shot in the beginning. Had he infiltrated some gang? Was the kid sent to shoot him chosen so the kid could earn some respect in the gang?Overall I think the quality was very good.
MJ Hermanny (Level 5)
I love the look of this - your DOP did a great job.The acting is tremendous, especially the young girl.I found the music invasive and melodramatic in places, particularly at the start.It's a great interpretation of your script Travis and comes over very well as a classic piece of film noir.Great job, well done.
Morgan Sun (Level 1)
loved the entire production. The directing, cinematography, acting, etc was all very well executed. However, I just didn't enjoy the story as much. For me there was no real climax and the ending was predictable. I did enjoy the first act, which grabbed and kept my attention. But after that I found my self checking how long the film is.
Paul De Vrijer (Level 5)
This is just amazing. I'm not just saying that Travis, but this really blew me away. If I had to point out 'errors' it would be the fact that you only get LAST credit (WTF!) and the ending is a bit quick and rushed. Who called the hit etc, we never find out. But brilliantly shot, scene by scene. Music, voice-acting, everything topnotch.The opening credits are simply sublime and the scenes just blow me away.Wife's thoughts: The dialog where he gets shot down from "...making every breath the new worst pain of your life" to "Signal Reception". Brilliantly delivered and written! Very tight editing. Voice-over really well done. Shots are all very stylish. Its a well-flowing story. The silence actually punctuate the scenes, like in the hospital. The little details, like the dust on the chair, make this film shine.Overall, this is my favorite this month thus far. Hope you guys work together in the future again.
Paul Williams (Level 5)
I remember this script and the movie remained very faithful to it.The production values are high here and I love the film-noir sub-genre, but I also this that's part of the problem: there's a little more style than substance. I've written stories like this, too, so I know. It's more of the protagonist's stream of consciousness over a traditional story.I was able to guess early on in the script that Vince was a cop, and it's hidden a little better in the film, but I still think some people will be able to guess it. It might be Vince's family, they just don't look like a gangster's family.Very Good.
Pete Barry (Level 5)
Excellent production values, and overall a very good effort. The twist that Vince is a cop got me, although I'm not entirely sure it threw everything into a different light. The acting was tremendous, especially the little girl. Sometimes Vince's facial expressions pushed the envelope into melodrama, but when your expression is all you have to get the scene across, sometimes more is better.The lighting and sets were very well done (if you constructed that hospital set, it's amazing, if you got a hospital, then you've got an awesome producer). The one shot that almost didn't work was the meticulously framed suicide shot - which is either ruined or enhanced by the distant airplane flying right towards Vince's head. It's distracting, but it left me wondering if it was vaguely symbolic. I have a feeling that it might have been just a random accident that couldn't be undone after the shot was set, but, hey, maybe you intentionally waited for the plane. I didn't get the meaning, if there was one, and as I said, it was a bit distracting.Every piece of this was of professional quality, including the music. I say that up front, because I have to also say this: the music completely backfires. It's well recorded, well composed, but it makes me bursts out laughing with every sting. A CHAIR! A ROPE! And as Vince heartbreakingly weeps over his lost family, it's like George Thorogood starts playing a ballad. It doesn't fit and turns highly emotional moments into campy action-movie cheese. Again, it's not the quality of the song, it's the effect of it.Still, an overall impressive job.
Philip Whitcroft (Level 5)
This is a very well put together film. The image contrast, lights, sounds and music are all really strong.The story has changed a bit from the original script but it works fine and the bit with the daughter is particularly effective.
Pia Cook (Level 5)
I think I have seen this one before. It's very well made. Really good looking film. IMHO it's good on all levels.Everyone involved should be very proud. I'm voting Very Good on this one.
Rich Keel (Level 4)
Wow that was pretty! The look and feel of the film is very professional! Nicely done. This is the best looking one I have seen yet.The story itself was great...until the end. Just ended too quickly or something. But other than that this was pretty much perfect. Lighting, audio, shots, look, feel, acting...everything - Excellent!
Rob Gross (Level 4)
So much to like about this film.First of all, the overall production was very impressive. Not sure how much it was to make, but appeared expensive. The actors did a great job. Story was well told. Not sure you needed a narrator as you probably could have done without it. I like Travis's scripts and this one didn't disappoint. I liked the color tones in the film. The sunset shot was particularly eye pleasing. The pace of the film was well done. The music choices were appropriate. Good Job you guys!
Sally Meyer (Moderator)
Very good!!The whole thing was really well done. The acting was great. All of the characters were believable. I liked that the mom and daughter didn't say anything at all, but you could feel their pain.Lighting and mood was very effective.The camera angles were great.Direction really good.Music and sound really added to the overall feel of the film. I read the script first and wasn't disappointed in the way this was brought to life.Well done.
Shawn Cottrill (Level 3)
the only noir piece that I've seen so far. Super well done. It reminds me alot of Max Payne. There were some really great shots. The opening shot from inside the barn and the almost suicide.It's obvios that you've done this before. you are very good.
Teo Gonzalez (Level 4)
I like the acting. I think everyone did a very good job. The editing and the filming are also quite good; and the lighting, and the sound. But I don't get the story.The first image that keeps him going after he's shot, I don't have clear if it is the wife, the daugghter, or the family they mean. In any way, he says they haven't seen him in such a long time that they barely recognize him. I don't know if that's just a way of saying it, or if he says it literaly. But if it has been so long, I don't quite get his despair -to the point of wanting to kill himself, I mean.Then, I don't get the resolution, either. I can imagine that the tied up cop has a lot to do with the attempt to kill him, but I kind of want to know rather than having to imagine.To that extent, I think the twist bring more questions than it answers. What does it mean that he's a cop too? The possibilities are endless, but, once again, they are too many. I could settle for it if it was a choice between this or that things, but with so many variables, I can't root for the guy -and with that I mean any of them.All in all, the movi is a big accomplishment, but I think the stor needs to be more cllear.
Valentina Reiken (Level 2)
I loved the look of this film. Camera work was great. The music and sound were both excellent.The lighting and general look of the movie - kind of metalic and cold - suited the dark theme. For a movie with just inner dialogue, it succeeded in getting across its ideas to me.
Wayne Morrical (Level 4)
Excellent! Great photography, lighting, sound. I liked the way the story was told in voice-over: got you in the characters head, and must have made it much easier to shoot. Nice reprise of the 'image comes to mind' to tie it together. Nice quick series of cuts at the end, good editing. Not quite sure what the guy learned at the end (revenge? what about the family?). My only gripe is the 45seconds of credits up front followed by a 5 minute movie: I think on a short film-run the credits at the end: if people like it they will take notice of your name when the end credits come up. Kudos for a great piece!
William Bienes (Mod Emeritus)
Well done and professionally done.I wasn't terribly interested in this script, but I thought the execution of the script was superb... and I'm not a great fan of a narrated script, at some point it begins to slip into a campy feel, not at all meaning to, of course.I thought from the opening credits to the close, this was well done on all fronts.

Amanda Sidorowicz (Level 4) ~ 1/2/2011 8:02 PM
Maybe, I'm going crazy but I remember seeing a trailer for this awhile back and was really excited to see it. I kind of forget about it until I watched this. This film is fabulous. I loved every minute. For being all voiceover, it was so powerful. I love the part where he was like, "You can thank God for two reasons. One - They hired the new kid for the job, and two - for signal reception." Then, the music picks up, and it's really cool. This is definitely high-quality to work, and everyone involved deserves a huge round of applause. Great script, Travis! Congrats on third place! (P.S. If there wasn't any trailer for this, I may be losing my mind!)
