the Elevator

I sort of got the idea to do this short film after doing Waiting Patiently pt 1. Waiting Patiently pt 1 was more like a spur of the moment thing, while the Elevator had been swimming in my mind for a couple of days. the Elevator is pretty much an extension of Waiting Patiently pt 1, in fact I took some clips from Waiting Patiently pt 1 and stuck it into this film. Hopefully you’ve also read some of my earlier posts so that you can figure out what’s going on in the movie. It’s not like I’m not pulling this shit out of my ass…

It took me 30 mins to shoot the footage and about 1.5 hours to edit everything. I shot it with my HP R707 camera so you’ll have to pardon the poor quality. The footage was then edited with Windows Movie Maker, since it came with my computer. Keep in mind it’s my first time to do a short film so please watch it and hopefully enjoy it! It’s only 3MB and it’s in WMV format so you’ll need Windows Media Player.

    five stars! nice suspenseful buildup… but i don’t get what those little character things are that have been popping up on your page lately.

    hey it was joyce’s suggestion! anyway i really should work on a part II… I realised that the Elevator is too short. it needs a lot more substance.. but i’m still glad you liked it :-)

    Very nice :) We’re were rolling in laughter. Had the lost in translation feel

    Some critique though… you should have held the last shot for a few more seconds. You built the suspense up, but the gravity of the appearance of Limp Richard didn’t have much effect because ot was so abrupt in the end. Just a suggestion,

    I think the sound, music and sound editing (if any?) was just classic, it really made the whole danm thing work!

    lol well i was thinking prolonging the ci boy shot in the end.. like a big close up of that nerve in his forehead.. but i couldn’t find the proper background music for it. you know that contained big crescendo before the credits.. so I ditched it.

    how about the dun-dun-DUNNNNNNN sound?

  7. Philip Says:

    yeah if i could find it… actually i should have used my piano for the background music.. ok that gave me an idea
