Hi, I’m new to this forum so if this isn’t the right place to post this, I apologize. I just wanted to post my short film for some feedback if anyone has the time. No worries if not.
I wtched the whole video. Here’s my honest opinion. The video, sound, editing and color grading were excellent. The actor who played Jay was a pro, everyone else’s acting was amateurish. The script was terrible. Sorry.
I tried my own science fiction short about 5 years ago.
I think a major barrier in amateur videos is content. We can get the technical aspects correct without too much effort. Writing and acting are very elusive art forms. Even pros never know whether or not they will hit the mark. Documentaries have the advantage of presenting a story that is being lived. They can be captured, while fictional films need to be created.
