Author Movement - Crit and Feedback

When looking back at our film, and getting feedback from tutors, we realise that the pace is a bit too slow, and some clips like the piñata and the empty set scenes are too long. I think that if we had more time to edit, we would have had more opportunities to watch our film back, and therefore we could have improved it. 


  • Great use of colour
  • The set helped to capture the idea of fun
  • The shift in mood between the fun party scene and the defecating works very effectively
  • More party noises could have been used
  • Could benefit from better pacing - build up more of a sense of anticipation to emphasis the grotesque even more
  • Piñata scene lasts too long
  • Think about the noises the beings would make 
  • The song is all on a similar level - the film could have benefited from a song with some change in pace/something more frantic
  • More POV shots - the ones from the trunk of my being helped to put the audience in the film 
  • Have the set introduced with music already playing/beings arriving

From looking at the feedback we got, I realise that there is a lot to improve on. However when I rewatched our film, I noticed all of these things really easily, which shows that we would have benefited from stepping back and reflecting on our film during the filming and editing process.
