"Trenches" is online

The first three segments of Trenches, a short science fiction action/suspense movie by Shane Felux (Star Wars: Revelations; Pitching Lucas) are now online at Crackle:

http://crackle.com/c/Trenches


This is not a work in progress, BTW, so there should be no delay in the release schedule for the rest of the segments - the movie was finished well over a year ago. It was produced on a remarkably limited budget (about a quarter of a million dollars) as original web content for Disney's Stage 9 Digital project.

Looks like there are still a few bugs in Crackle's system. It works fine for me in IExplorer; not so good in Firefox.

Thanks Dennis for posting this, I know Shane is trying to get the word out as much as possible. I made a couple banners for my sites last month to help.

Re: "Trenches" is online

Watched the first three parts. It's semi-impressive for a low budget production. But the action choreography is confusing, and the writing is very pedestrian. I don't get why the guys blame the lead for getting them into this mess. I watched the first episode again and it's still not clear.

Re: "Trenches" is online

I watched the first two minutes and wasn't impressed. I feel bad for saying that because I know how difficult it is to get other people to watch your work -- especially when you're on a limited budget -- but it just didn't do anything for me, and I'm a big fan of science-fiction. As mentioned above, the action choreography was confusing and editorially had no structure or flow. There just seemed like a bunch of choppily cut together shots. The acting was passably mediocre and it just didn't grab me. I might give it another shot.

Here's a good review:

I agree about the Nathan Fillion resemblance - I thought so when I saw the whole thing at Farpoint last year.

Re: "Trenches" is online

All the episodes are up on Crackle.com, albeit the sound drops weirdly on one segment and another segment seems missing its opening.

Anyone else seen all of it? Thoughts?
