Last week we presented the rough cut of our film to several people. Overall the feedback was positive, however there is still a lot to do.
- The first scene is very static, for a comedy it needs to be quicker. This means cutting down reaction shots and over lapping sound.
- The music within the party scene does not give the right tone, research needed.
- Atmos needs to be constant the whole way through, sometimes it takes you out of the scene.
- Murder your darlings!
Here are our hand written notes with time codes:
