Artifice Video 1 - Comedy/Satire

3 stars
Seems like it has potential but not sure the story appears fleshed out yet? Then again its just a trailer.

Origin Of A Species Video 1 - Test Movie

2 stars
Weak story because it can't eem to decide what kind of movie it wants to be? The birth of a species storyline seems secondary to the Teacher / Student love affair, & neither stoyline has any pay off!

I decided to watch this test movie after viewing the latest trailer. The movie was rather disappointing. Seemed as though there was a lot of LONG pauses in between dialogue for no other purpose than to extend the movie's length....which made it painfully slow and killed any resemblance of pace and action.

I did not think the premise was all that intriguing on its own, but after watching the most recent trailer decided it may be better than expected.....after all, HOW a story is told is often more important than the story itself. So I decided to give it a shot. But this was not interesting.

Serious work needs to be done to develop characters that an audience would care about, a better set up for the zombie entrance and the pace needs to REALLY pick up. Holding the camera on still drawings with no movement while waiting for the next line really killed any chance for momentum. I honestly can't even tell if picking up the pace would help the story, but it seriously dragged this test version down.

I was really in the mood for some simple entertainment and chose to watch this test movie rather than something on Netflix. I am regretting that decision. I wanted to like this, but just can't.

Pick up the pace making a much shorter version, THEN we can see how the rest of it holds up!!

I thought this was a good film in all aspects. Animation and camera movement was very good, and above that of other films I have watched on AS. The rest of the film, story, dialogue, characters, etc. was good but I do think it could be better. Some of the lines were delivered without emotion when it would have been more effective with proper voice inflection (work with actors). Overall, I think it would be greatly improved by polishing what is there. Make it all a little "smarter" and sharper. Try and create action that is not run-of-the-mill genre sequences. It's OK to be genre, but add a little twist to the usual here and there. And just review the dialogue and see where it can be sharpened and smarter....it was a little too generic. Now I find myself writing a little too critically....it was good, but can be better. Just polish!!
