I like your overall effort. You thought through the shots and coverage. You wrote a script and executed that script. The feedback that I would give you is to keep pushing your effort to the next level. One example is your script: you have a story developing but it doesn't really finish to enough conclusion.

Congratulations on getting the film completed by yourself. Not an easy task. The note I would give you it to really focus on your editing next time around. One example is the digging up and opening of the box. Cut that scene so that the action moves much quicker. Your first cut to the close up was perfect. Then the act...

The feedback that I would give you is to keep pushing your effort to the next level. One example is your script: you have a story developing but it doesn't really finish to enough conclusion. It's true that something happened 3 times and then she is missing but you don't give the audience enough to have any sort of resolution to your plot. More development would fleshed that out.

Congratulations on getting the film completed by yourself. Not an easy task. The note I would give you it to really focus on your editing next time around. One example is the digging up and opening of the box. Cut that scene so that the action moves much quicker. Your first cut to the close up was perfect. Then the action slows way down as she's opening it and looking at the note. All those shots could be much shorter. Try just recutting that scene and you'll see how much better it will be.

Really Fun Idea

2.2 Stars

The concept of this project was great! I loved all the 80s references around the room and the horror posters were a nice touch. I would like to have heard more sound design since this was the sound design challenge. I think the shots in the bathroom could have been much cooler, with the streaks being more organic, and revealing her face as she wipes them off. Great way to treat the ending. I don't think you needed the shot of her seeing the box in her bedroom. Just cut to mom.
