    Default Play your game

    "Art is never finished, just simply abandoned"

    In this chase this quote is very much true. I simply don't have enough time to work on this film anymore.

    So here you go: Play your game!

    An attempt at making an action short-film where we were not allowed to use any guns.
    I think we did a pretty good job



    It may be that I will revisit this at a later date so constructive feedback is much appreciated

    Lol, that ending gave me a good laugh. Well, I have to say, I like the camera angles you used here. Looked like you placed a tri-pod on the actor's bookbag during certain scenes. I especially like the intro, where the player is choosing their character, and weapons for gameplay, and how the characters are moving as in reality. Considering that you weren't allowed to use any weapons, you guys did a good job.

    Looks pretty cool! But some parts are too realistic. For example, as the big boss comes clapping, show his steps from really close up and in slow motion, and boost the bass on the clapping and let it echo really well.
    The fighting and acting is way too good for me to give any advice on

    I really liked that. I think the fights need a little bit of improvement though.

    I am surprised no one has mentioned my appearance in this yet

    Sorry, haven't got your face in mind. Why not mention it yourself though?

    At the start when the characters are selected, I am the one with the name Nino. I am also the guar that inspects the briefcase and shocks the protagonist.

    The nino bit was quite obvious, that's why nobody mentioned it.

    Thank you The reason the sound effects are sub-par is due to lack of time, this was done as a school project and we only had 3-4 (can't remember) weeks to pull this off. The version we delivered to the school had even worse sound effects if you can believe that! After the hand in I decided to polish it up a bit, I didn't want to leave it in the state it was. Too bad nobody else on my group saw it that way...

    So just a few minutes ago I discovered this video on Youtube.


    Don't you think it has great similarities to your video? You guys either copied a lot from this or it's all a great coincidence (which I don't believe).
    In some cultures refusal of lady's invitation to play game with her would be sign of homosexuality.

    Yup, that video was one of our biggest inspirations during this project

    I didn't also say you actually did a pretty good job. Since you're amateurs I didn't expect much from acting, effects and whatnot, so I'm not gonna comment on it. Maybe what I disliked the most was you copied so many things from the original video, so next time try to do something more original and put more of your ideas in it (though the last parts had more of your ideas than borrowed ones).
    Keep doing videos like this, I wish you luck!
