This was good work for a fan film. Better than most I've seen. The camera work was great, the effects looked like they were almost straight from the game they were so good. The sounds were decent, as was the music score. Overall, my only misgiving was that it was only 10 minutes long. I wanted there to be more.
Also, I liked the fact that you got the voice actor of the Mass Effect games to play your main Character. That has to be one touch that no other fanfilm has gotten before.
I would recommend this video to any real fan of the Mass Effect game series,or even just people who want to know more.
