Let me start of saying. The whole thing looks like it was shot through a web cam by nervous kindergarten students. Gotta give you haters that much. The camera and sound guys should be made to go through the gatherer trials as punishment for this or be made to watch their own work which is worse.
For you complaining about getting better for this budget? Let me see you try. You might be right but just try to get this many of your friends in one place long enough to shoot anything longer than a trailer. If you are not paying them you ain't getting much done. Even then try to get them to take it half as seriously as these actors tried. That location didn't look like they had a McDonald's near by either they definitely had to spend a little money here on food and lodging. I don't know about 100,000 though what they do buy the cabin? Probably the most expensive thing to get right was that HEADSHOT and even then I guarantee you that they overpaid for those effects. They definitely didn't spend it on equipment. And don't play me with that 20 days to shoot bull this did not take more than a week. With 14 days or more even Ed Wood could get better shots.
The story starts off slow (and ends a little slow) but I have to say the story was deep enough and it definitely had me. I think it was original and very well thought out very well written. Note to the editor. PACING... look it up trust me. The long dramatic pauses and scenes play out nice on paper but they where bad here.
Oh, yeah and I wouldn't mind taking a bite out of Devanny Pinn (Tifa)
