Film Reviews


  1. Hi Tom :)

    I don't know if you're finished with Pete yet, but I have a favour to ask of you... I'd very much like to include The Witch's Cottage in the new 2015/16 Showreel I'll be editing together after New Designers. I know you intended to extend the sequence, and perhaps do those nighttime sequences etc. I'm hoping you might agree to revisit this project in terms of producing some additional content I can use in the showreel? I'm hoping I might get my hands on content by July 10th - do you think this is possible, and are you up for it? Obviously I can use the existing footage, but I somehow got the feeling there was more to this world and that you might be up for showing us a bit more of it...

    Let me know.

  2. Hello, I am still doing work for Pete at the moment but this is something I've been planning on doing but have been too busy to do yet. There is a couple of shots I am planning on finalizing to extend the sequence but I don't think I will have enough time to get them ready and render in time for July 10th as it took extremely long time to render the short sequence I had and I am away next week. I will try and produce some extra content by then but this is something I was definitely going to do as soon as the work with Pete had finished and will hopefully have full done by the end of July if that will still be any use?
