hey, kind of off-this-movie topic, but if you want to basically waste 10 minutes of your life laughing at a crappy horror film me and my friends made when studying Edgar A. Poe, check this out: My Movie
BTW- thought yours was pretty funny, just started out way too slow
Thanks for the great feedback guys. OK so a little backgroud. As you can tell the camera wasn't as still as I hoped it would be but trying to get those shots without the use of a steady cam is impossible. Everything except for like a few shots were all done by hand on a small personal cam-corder. I did use a tripod for some shots.
Ok the theme of this piece is..obviously war, but even more so, its about the act of war. It is supposed to symbolize that war never changes, its always the same ugly battle and always for the same reasons. This film was actually a satire of war movies. The first couple of shots were of the house and it was important to show no people in them because it kind of has a Toy Story feel to it. When the people are away the toys will play.
As for the music, it is supposed to die out in the middle to create a giant climax when they go to battle. You are supposed to watch it with the volume pretty loud to begin with. Every time I hear that song I get goose bumps.
