  • Thanks, Tony- appreciate you giving your time to checking it out.
  • Thanks, man! Glad you enjoyed it.
  • Thanks, you guys! You're truly too kind. Andy- what can I say? Heh I tend to be more overbearing with my sound mixes to push for more 'sonic soup' in the final product. I know it's a habit not many care for. Though hopefully the more deliberate pac…
  • Hey! As an update for anyone interested- the short film just premiere this evening online for a limited 2-week run. If you want to check it out, feel free! Would love to know the comments or critiques of this community, should anyone have anything t…
  • Thanks, yall! Looking forward to showing it to you guys. And funny thing, Triem23- I'm sad to say I haven't actually ever seen (though I obviously know of it). My influences in writing this one, this go-around, were actually more spontaneous. I type…
  • Heh, if only. It poured down rain on both ends- the broad daylight just makes it super hard to see. The fortunate/unfortunate thing about Josh's coverage of the scene was that by the time we got to him- he was so heavily soaked and the rain was comi…
  • @Andy001z Yeah, unfortunately that one is something I have the chalk up to just '48 hours'. Like I mentioned in the initial post, we were severely undermanned, which made for an interesting challenge- but also came with concessions. As-written, the …
  • Ah, but you can never have music be too loud. Haha. And that's quite the compliment, comparing to The Dark Knight. I suppose it's the vibe of the color palette and brooding atmosphere, perhaps. Thanks for checking it out. @Triem23 - I can see wha…
  • Thanks, guys. Yes- the short was indeed conceptualized, created, and produced entirely in 48 hours- though really that's sorta tertiary to us these days. The reason we come back continually to the 48 hour competition (after a hiatus for a few years…
  • That's kind of you to say, @StormyKnight. We have been fortunate to have a few meetings with production houses and some studios in LA- and been through talks here or there over the years in development on a few projects and ideas- but nothing that's…
  • Eh, the world's not all YouTube subs and views. Though if it was, I should probably mention I've got a couple million of the latter myself, for what it's worth.
  • Thanks you guys! Glad people are enjoying it- once again, we were super happy to get this out there and are excited about the final thing! @TriFlixFilms I wasn't the biggest fan of the style of 'Sync' (though, to my understanding from some conversa…
  • For anyone interest, here's the official trailer for the project! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ezZdxCoSDY
  • Thanks you guys! Glad to see there's at least *some* interest in it all haha. For anyone curious, we'll be releasing the trailer for the project next week on Wednesday, June 1st. Here's the promo gif image that corresponds with that announcement via…
  • I will say that while it's grown (massively might I add, in the time I've been there since 2008 it's almost doubled in size)- Austin is still a relatively small town in the scope of Texas. Mainly because it rigidly refuses to grow outward. Everyone …
  •  Thanks guys, glad you all seem to have enjoyed it- Ben and I and the whole team really appreciate the kind words! To answer you, StormyKnight, yes the two actors in the short are in fact husband and wife in real life. Brian, the man, is a frequent…
  • Yeah, Todd really nailed it. The cinematic, moment-of-truth-y vibe we were going for in the pointed, single-line style (all the way down to the dollying-in on every bit of exposition) he really latched onto well. Really made handfuls of words that …
  • Yeah, the interviewer- an actor named Todd Gable- really was fantastic. He was somewhat of a gamble,  as our initial actor to play his role grew out his hair and a beard for another role (he's the ending baddie in the short now, instead), and sugges…
  • That it is, Tim. Sam Gorski and Niko Pueringer, aside from being our pals in real-life these days, are longtime friends from the early 2003/2004 days of Fxhome. So, in 2005 when we initially made our first little Splinter Cell project, we named our…
  • Was thinking about making a 'Tis The Season 'one-off' little short next month for fun. Maybe we'll include these requirements in it just for kicks, too.
  • These are really awesome, guys. Poignant, reflective, well-realized and well-written. And presented in such an appealing way. Reminds me of the good old FXhome days of the early 2000s. Nice work, Simon.   Keep it up. 
  • Simon, whoa. You haven't seen Days of Future Past? What about Dawn of The Planet of The Apes? If you've missed both, you've missed the two best of that bunch. 
  • Olympus Has Fallen has some of the most laughable, lazily-composed and rendered VFX I've seen in a movie of its scope and caliber of quality. Surprised and somewhat thrown off by the response in this thread to it. While visual effects are by no mea…
  • I really liked the way Gotham handled it. Apart from being hyper-stylized and television-y in many respects (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, either), it takes a much more grim and crime-drama take on the scene, as opposed to the 'this explains …
  • Edge of Tomorrow was an absolutely fantastic movie with great performances, really innovative and practical VFX in many places, and a directorial style and tone that hit a lot of different emotional and genre beats. Really criminally-underrated movi…
  • One of my probably most important moments in college was when, in the sole class or course Ben and I have had together since we were 9, we argued for net neutrality in what became a very bitter and intense discussion in one of our communications cou…
  • Thanks, guys. Really appreciate you all taking the time to watch this and give your thoughts. I know the Hitfilm forums are more scant on commentary and viewership of short films specifically, as that sort of audience traffic has moved off of forums…
  • Here's the full short, for anyone interested! Let me know what you think! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6j9cvUqeJD0
  • Excellent work as usual, Aculag. The teetering hopeful-sorrowful undercurrent to your sound and style, in my opinion, really elevates it to something great. It's very much rock, but the vocal performance tweaks the genre and has a mellowed, poetic a…
  • Thanks, Kirstie! We'll be premiering the short online this Sunday, September 7th- so I'll be sure to post that here for anyone interested.
