@04:07Thank you :) I have a specific story behind it but I doubt anyone would interpret it the same one. I purposely kept mystery instead over the movie.

@04:07ive watched this several times ever since you uploaded it. i couldn't find an adequate reply. it's so reminiscent of a serious breakup (which, ironically i just experienced since you've submitted this. so, that was almost eerie. but the first time i viewed it (since i'd actually, yes even at 22, never experienced a break-up..) it reminded me of the countless, unreal amounts of friends i've lost to death. so soo many young young people. while this didn't fit perfectly to that feeling -- it was more complex that that and more intimate -- that same grief and loss and anger and hurt and memory was so so strong. once i hit that breakup feeling; it was unbelievable powerful. as per usual with your work. amazing. so wonderful.

@04:07C'est mitigé pour moi, en même temps la thématique est très classique, un peu cliché, mais d'un autre coté il y a une très belle photographie et un très gros travail...De même, malgré que le thème soit classique et rien de contractuellement nouveau au niveau de la rupture et de ses effets, il y a quelque chose de très subtile qu'a un certain moment on é;prouve le désir d'arrêter le film pour faire un commentaire.

Je vais faire un parallèle (un faux parallèle puis ce que c'est plus dans mon ressenti personnel), votre film me fait penser a Tati, a ce que j'ai ressenti la première fois pour finir par aimer et dire que c'est du génie.

@04:07Merci ! Comme je le disais, le scénario est à améliorer, pour l'instant, je débute totalement pour ce qui est également du découpage et du montage... J'applique par contre mes connaissances photographiques ce qui rend l'image par contre plus plaisante.

@04:07Je ne crois pas que le scénario demande beaucoup d'améliorations, il est très complet et votre approche le rend original.C'est le thème de la rupture qui est cliché. Je le redis il y a indéniablement quelque chose de subtile et je pense que c'est votre talent qui rend le film si intéressant. On a tous les mêmes images de rupture dans la tête, et ce scénario est basic mais la façon dont vous traiter les images font que même si on se dit: c'est cliché on ne peut s'empêcher de continuer a regarder. Je regarde énormément de film en une année (dans les 2000) et j'ai beaucoup d'images dans la tête c'est peut être pour ca que je suis mitigé, par contre dans les 2000 il n'y aura qu'une poignée qui vont me marquer... Je pense que si dans la photographie vous avez un très beau regard, dans la cinématographie vous avez une sensibilité sure! Je vous souhaite une belle réussite et je serais sûrement dans une salle un jour a regarder un de vos films

@04:07Merci, et tu peux me tutoyer.

Je doute de passer en salle obscure un jour avec autre chose qu'un court métrage :) Par contre, je suis en train de finaliser un très court film tourné hier, je le posterai prochainement. C'est encore une fois assez simple, tu verras.

Bon week-end,

@04:07Je vais attendre avec grande impatience!

Le court métrage est au film ce que la nouvelle est au roman...le prélude a une grande œuvre. Que tu décides de faire ce pas la ou pas je suis fan maintenant!

Bon week-end a toi aussi

Je ne pense pas que la nouvelle soit un prélude, elle peut être magnifique en soi ^_^ J'adore Dino Buzzatti p.ex. ou l'écriture parfois très concise de certaines personnes (je pense à "Novecento" d'Alessandro Baricco)

Tu n'as pas tort et même pour presque tous les écrivains c'est ainsi. J'ai d'ailleurs quelques nouvelles ou l'on m'a fait comprendre que ce ne sera pas publiable sous forme de nouvelle (parce que trop longue ou demandant un approfondissement des personnages) et bien sur je traîne la patte depuis 5 ans a le faire parceque je trouve, moi, l'histoire fini. C'est un prélude dans le sens ou un jour ou l'autre une occase se présentera sûrement parce que tôt ou tard ça vient sur le tapis.
la nouvelle et le court métrage sont des œuvres a part entière et pas des synopsis, c'est vrai!

allez ciao
j'y vais parce que ma femme va encore faire la gueule

@00:16Movie shot on Canon 5D Mark II, montage with Serif Movie Plus X3. Special effects with Photoshop and Blender.

The problem isn't tools but what you do with them and how their possibilities match your needs.

@00:16thx u fot the info .. so you were taping the film with your canon camera too? wow.. thats cool.. i'm only using Nikon D60 and a digital pocket camera sometimes.. seems i have to change my camera to the one just like yours, which is $3,099.00? wow.. i think its gonna be long before i changed the camera. hix hix...

The problem isn't tools but what you do with them and how their possibilities match your needs.
-> yes, its true. but sometimes i found it hard to found a good and a great concept for the photos. i still have so much to learned. but i learned a lot from your art such as angle, tone, concept, and else. and i like the video of behind the scene too.. its kinda funny.

keep posting great and magnificent art.

@00:16It's not because I'm using this camera that you need the same one. It was actually the cheapest option.
