Dramatic Narrative

Entry Description

A man comes home from work, to find that he is not alone.

Judge 1

Positives: some interesting camera shots

Improvements: lighting occasional text would have helped to better convey the storyline.

Judge 2

Positives: Music used well to help heighten suspense. Good use of camera at an angle to cause disorientation, reflecting things aren't right, building fear.

Improvements: Music is a little uneven, a little too loud in the beginning and at other parts toward the end. Viewer not ultimately clear about whether it's the supernatural, the cat, the drinking, whether he's entered The Twilight Zone or has an actual intruder -- but perhaps that's what was intended, to keep us guessing.

Judge 3

Positives: Set up and opening shots moved the story along...made it believable Music background was effective in setting the mood

Improvements: Plot could have developed a little faster...suspense is difficult to maintain without more action
