Hi Pete,  When I first saw the day to night sequence at the beginning.. I immediately thought to myself the filters were a little heavy and oversaturated.  I am a concept artist by day, so I am thinking about arrangement and composition a lot.  I would recommend pulling out the camera sometimes and pull away from close ups of parts that you know the effects are a little iffy (the bone outta the hand).  Some more dramatic camera angles may convey a much more menacing Predator.  A lot of this stuff can be fleshed out with a storyboard artist.. Someone that has an idea how to get feeling from camera placement.    I thought it was a great attempt, and one hell of a learning experience I bet.  You guys should give it another go and apply what you learned from doing the first.     :)

I loved this film. The fight scenes were cool, but I particularly enjoyed then ending. I really, really enjoyed this. 5/5.    ;D

HOLY CRAP!!  That was awesome!!!!  Was that really made with like a camcorder?  I don't know what your talking about Cellien.  I thought the camera angles were perfect!  It reminded me of classic sci-fi like the first Predator.  I'm sick of this Michael Bay rapid camera angles that create absolutely NO suspense!  (See AVP)  My one only gripe is the way the Predator died.  Dutch's whole team couldn't take him down with a zillion rounds of ammo in the first Predator, but one shotgun shot to the neck can kill him?  Hmm...  Otherwise 5 out of 5!!!  Excellent!    ;D

@Celtic_Power:  There are other ways to convey suspense besides overly long and constant claustrophobic close ups :)  AvP had tons of close ups and you couldnt tell what the hell was going on. To each their own I suppose...   Just trying to give some tips instead of saying everything was "perfect".  No biggie :)

It was all right. The blue filter was a bit too overpowered. I thought the creature effects and make up were great. But the acting... the acting left alot to be desired. A good effort but your camera work needs some improvment, I also didn't like the how long the camera lingered on a scene. The concpt was awesome and I hope you can keep on with part 3.
