Dramatic Narrative

Entry Description

We all need a little color to brighten our Mondays. In Danny Farber's short film, the drudgery of a Monday morning is broken by a chance encounter.

Judge 1

Positives: some interesting camera shots.

Improvements: a few closeups could have been improved.

Judge 2

Positives: Nice effect to make everything black and white except for the red image in most every scene. Hallway sequence animation with everyone passing our hero by is effective in showing his detachment.

Improvements: Nice to think that someone smiling at you can take away the nuisance of dropping your books, the sting of a D- and bring your world from black and white (with a dash of red) into color but the piece could use a little more substance. Special thanks credits at the end were a little faint and difficult to read.

Judge 3

Positives: Editing is very creative and well done Camera positions excellent...really helped to move the piece along

Improvements: resolution of the story could be a lot stronger.... resolution of the story should have happened a little sooner...pacing could be improved...
