Praises aside (all that needs to be said has already been posted), the lighting effects were amateurish...or rather simplistic at best. Lens flare here, lens flare there, that's it, no additional work to make them blend more naturally. There's an obvious cut off on the top of the fire and it doesn't illuminate (either artificially or on set) the fire place and that's the only area I felt needed more work. If only you'd came to me for effects work .
The ghost part was the only area I was impressed with , effects-wise.
Again, all praises aside. I enjoyed it despite my SFX/VFX jadedness.
Yes I know, most of my effects were amateurish, But hey it was like my first time trying out most of this stuff.
Even though yes, of course it would of been better if I had come to an experienced member, I am happy I did it myself because at least I am learning something new and have some more stuff to improve on for next time
And as you said, I got the ghost part right, maybe next time I can get some more stuff right aswell.
you should become a youtube partner! all in favor, say 'I'
Haha I wish, my Dad won't let me. I have to wait till I turn 18
