Brave beginning to new career...
23 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I applaud these actors/producers for taking chances at the beginning of their careers. Many people never have the bravery to get this far, and it's easy to be harsh from the couch watching Netflix, late night. These guys deserve constructive criticism, not a bashing.

Pros: 1. Fabulous idea in first person shooting that has seen smash hits with, for example, "Blair Witch Project". 2. I cared about the side story of the relationship between the characters.

Cons: 1. These actors weren't seasoned enough to pull off ad lib scripting. Not many actors are. 2. The shouting...OMG...take it down a notch.

This is worth watching if you are willing to give constructive criticism, i.e., teacher, fellow student of film.

Overally, a great start!
