Hey there! Also looking forward to see this one. But i have some minor crits or comments if you like. At the end of the trailer when the hunter climbs the rock, his leg intersects with the rock. I suppose that's not sand or something like that and i think you don't want to have it for a festival version. As i've said before really looking forward to this short.

neiy0: You have to click on vote to go to the screening room :)

Paul: Hey was good to finally see your little film.

Comments-wise...I thought it was a good idea....extremely simple but nonetheless I think that helped it.

As for the wasn't too bad....there were some issues with limbs going through rocks and stuff, and most of the shots were very "one track minded" ( each shot a character only had to do one action...there wasn't a lot of complicated acting going on)....but overall it was a nice piece :)
