That was a very visually pretty entry. Great job, Aqua.

Have you seen a big-chinned boy?

Terrific cinematography and lighting. Perfect choice in the music. Nice entry!

Re: BiM Celebration: Flowers for Elizabeth

I liked the 'looking back' theme of the film.
You portrayed it beautifully.
Well done!

Re: BiM Celebration: Flowers for Elizabeth

This one had a bit of a darker overtone the whole time, with the imminent end portrayed right from the beginning, and the rest of the story told in reverse order. It's creatively brilliant, but, I just am not much of a fan of this method. I don't really care for Elizabeth when I first see her here. And thus, everything following is just more of a retrospective than an actual story. (It makes me want to see it in reverse order, just so I can get a better picture of her life portrayed here)

Again, very creative, but, I just am not much of a fan of this one. (A bit of a disappointment, as, I've REALLY enjoyed most of your other films) But, it is something different, and, different really does stand out. It'll be sure to cement itself in the viewers minds when they watch it on the DVD especially.

Thanks very much for taking the time to give some feedback for my film. Despite this being a 30 second film this took about two weeks to make. I guess that is what I get for having so many different sets. I took some behind the scenes photos and they are available here http://aquamorph.tumblr.com/post/971440 … -elizabeth

Re: BiM Celebration: Flowers for Elizabeth

Nice film! What kind of lights are those that you used in your behind the scenes (the flexable strip of LED lights)? My one critque is that when you first see Elizabeth at the beginning, her eyes are open, and she's in a coffin. It looks kind of odd. You could have put a blank head there and it probably would have looked better. I also found it strange that she was wearing the safe outfit at the retirement party that she was in the beginning of the film.
