Rough Cut Feedback

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.

Overall Points:

  • 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:
