Check out my new sci-fi short film "Streamline"

Hello everyone.



A while back I announced my sci-fi short film Streamline on here. It's been in development for over two years but I was finally able to complete it. I released it online this week and you can watch it here.

Thoughts, comments, criticisms, etc would be extremely welcomed. I've spent a lot of the time on this and my cast & crew worked really hard to deliver something that hopefully will entertain you guys.

I'd love to hear what everyone thinks.

A brilliant emotional piece supported by a beautiful score. I still need to collect my full thoughts on this at a later date...but I truly loved "Streamline".

Slick. Now get to work on a Star Trek fan film!

(Seriously, magnificent from acting, writing, production and concept (although well worn) from start to finish...!)

Edit: ...and score (between X-Files and Inception)

Re: Check out my new sci-fi short film "Streamline"

Very slick production, particularly the directing, editing, music and lighting.

While I'm sure it was unintentional, the "technicians" in the overalls reminded me of the antibodies (I think that's what they were called) in Inception.

A few minor quibbles:

At the 6:28 mark, there's a jump from Max looking away from Artemis to a close-up of Artemis, and then a few seconds later, jumping back to the overall, with Max now looking at Artemis. This shot is a little jarring and I think it would work better if we see Max beginning to turn his head towards Artemis right before the close-up to Artemis.

During the final voice over with Dr. Gettler, before revealing she's speaking at a press conference, the audio of her voice sounds a bit off and disconnected from the narrative (albeit the sound of the voice makes sense when it's revealed to be at a press conference). The recording sounds different from the earlier voice over when she's talking to Max at the house, and the difference is a bit jarring for me. Hopefully what I'm trying to describe makes sense.

The closing credits over the water are a little hard to read (I would recommend a stronger stroke to contrast with the water) and a few of them went by a little too fast.

All in all, great job!

Re: Check out my new sci-fi short film "Streamline"

Thanks for the extensive review, Emh. It is really appreciated!

Also, thank you HaplessCrewman for pointing out the link over at FirstShowing. If any of you would want to post a review or comment in the thread, that would be great! Especially if you liked the movie. There are some weird negative comments and it would be great to balance the comments section out with some nice positive comments from you guys.

Thanks again!
