    Well, I fimed both Brutality and Duality together. I started filming Brutality on November 3, 2005. I then started Duality the next day, November 4, 2005. So, it's not like I finished Brutality and THEN started on Duality... I was working ont hem both at the same time.

    It shows. These films look like they were thrown together in a week. Terrible acting. Terrible costumes. Terrible dialogue. Terrible editing. What a waste of time. You get what you put into these kind of things. This one was messy, cheap, and rushed. The result: a bad film.

    Next time put some money and time into it. Buy a better camera, wait a good several years until you're done with puberty, get some people who can act, and take a good six months in the writing stages alone.

    Films take years not months. That's why this one is so bad. I'd like to say "nice try," but it really wasn't. Simply atrocious. :down :down

    You are such an *******....:mad: :down
    1.Hes a teenager...look at M.Night Shamalan, or any other big movie director..their first movies were never good because they made the films with FRIENDS ******...not 4 star actors...:rolleyes:
    2.Id like you to do a movie and see how well you do.Thats very 'classy' to just criticize someone like that...its not constructive criticism and you couldve kept it to yourself
    3.If you look at the factors of budget, experiance, not having real actors in the film, ect...he did a good job.Look at the camera angles he tried to do and the script itself was great for an amateur director.You need to get a life, just because you do everything wrong doesnt mean you have to insult everyone else...thats pathetic

    One hollywood movie costs more than the budget for all UK movies made in one year so what do you expect, big crane pans, car chases, CG and big name actors.

    Hey SeriousDuke,

    Great job! I'll give you an A for a solid attempt. In my opinion, anybody that has a vision and goes through the work to complete their project wins major points in my book. Keep that ethic dude, it'll take you places.

    That being said, let me offer some critique. I think for your next film, you should really scale it *down* to something that you can focus all of your attention on, and spend a lot of time fine-tuning and making it awesome. Pick a scenario that takes place maybe in just one room? Focus all of your creative energies into creating a mood for your story.

    Imagine an interrogation scene between Batman and The Joker, with dramatic overhead lighting, and lots of fun dialogue between the two of them. All you would need is one room, decorated like an interrogation room, a good strong light (which will help wash out any slip-ups in makeup and costuming, not to mention allow for experimentation with dramatic effects), a table, and two chairs. And your costumes.

    See what I mean? Pick an idea, a simple one, one that you know you can tell in about 5 minutes, using as few resources as possible (and as few people), and focus everything into telling that story in the best way possible. Draw out rough storyboards. Spend the time to create some decent-looking sets. Spend some time putting makeup on perfectly---hell, maybe you know someone in class that's really good at that, and you can have them over in exchange for free food or something. You're young, so you have nothing BUT time, correct? :)

    All in all, I say hats off to you for putting your best foot forward. The idea is not to let the praise or the scorn get to you too much, and to always trust your gut, use a critical eye, think outside the box, and have FUN.

    Best of luck to you, and keep it up!

    -LC

    p.s. another idea for a potential future film:

    How Does The Joker Occupy Himself During Solitary Confinement? (one actor, one set, endless opportunities)

    If you spend a few years on a Batman movie a.k.a. a movie YOU CAN'T MAKE MONEY FROM, that's kinda dumb.

    I'm a nice guy, but when it comes to posts like that... it annoys me SO much! Just to criticize for criticizing sake... my God! That's pathetic! And... notice he is a first time poster. He got an account, just to criticize, myself, my actors and my work. Makes me sick.

    I won't let it get to me though... and I will keep my head high!

    Hey SeriousDuke, one more observation to keep you juiced:

    I really liked Batman's arrival at the party. Right on cue when they ask "Where's Bruce?" Good stuff! Keep truckin'.
     
  15. I quite like you style with these movies..i'm going to attempt one myself.

    the only thing i will suggest is ask your batman to lover his voice and stop shouting,you as the joker..dude..you have a future..with a bit of training.

    :up:

    I didn't post for criticizing sake. I offered you advice. I told you to spend more time and money on your films or wait until you can before you make more. There is nothing pathetic about my post. You posted a link to your film here, obviously wanting to share it and get some feedback. I watched and I told you what I thought of it. I didn't like it. Sue me. I'm certainly not going to lie to you about what I thought of it or give you my sympathy - especially when it's your own fault this turned out the way it did. It is obviously rushed and obviously cheap. Get some thicker skin or you'll never make it as a film maker. Good luck next time around.

    I learned a long time ago to tell it like it is when it comes to rookie film makers. If it's bad, I'll be the first to tell ya. I'm hoping my comments will push you to do better. The fact that you started a project and finished it shows me that you have potential, but you're going to have to do a lot better to show you know what you're doing.
