Director's Comments

The plot thickens in the Abduction series with Abduction 4, my entry to BRAWL 2009. It's significantly longer than the first three films since I had a week to make it, and it's also the first film I've attempted scoring.

Staff Review

david reino :
For a film completed during the time constraints of a BRAWL contest, Nick Durron's latest installment in the Abduction series is quite excellently done. As is the nature of the series, this film reveals to us a little more information than the last, letting us in on more character info, backstory, and also introducing a new character. The soundtrack played throughout the film is very fitting, and punctuates the action quite nicely. As always, the animation, set design, and UFO effects are top notch. The set lighting onboard the UFO is also quite effective - it really creates quite a surreal, unnatural feel, which, I am sure, was the director's goal. It is obvious, however, that the director voiced all three of the speaking roles in this film, and the audience can sometimes easily confuse which one is speaking. However, this is only a minor point, especially given the circumstances of production. If you've enjoyed the previous Abduction films, you won't be let down by
Abduction 4.
