If any of you have 5 minutes - I'd appreciate some feedback from experts on this Western short I made.
Hope you like it!

See you all a little further on down the trail..

Hello Oliver and welcome to the forum!

Thanks to share your short movie, I had a really nice time watching it! Vimeo is full of nice shorts, and I'm always sad people do not get more on this website. It seems people prefer to search for "funny cats" on youtube sadly...

I'm definitely no expert but I really felt like the spaghetti western genre was brought back into this short. Silent characters and the music is a really nice choice to make emphasys on the lonely ambience in the forest. Clothes choice was really nice with the amount of details. I can really feel they are in the middle of a more complex story with their expressions that tries to talk under the scars.
Camera angles were simply just perfect, I can see that a lot of work has been done on this crucial part.

Really, like Tequila said, you deserve to be in the Western Movie of the Month page.
I see that you are even listed on IMDB and it does not lie: that was some professional work you have done in this short with all your team.

My congratulations on this short, continue on this (trail?) line!

Not sure, if I completely understood this movie (
husband tries to sell his wife for reward to a stranger, wife gets saved by stranger, stranger is a moron and turns his back to wife, wife is a crazy, unthankful bitch
), but overall I did enjoy it. Wished, it had a bit tense trash talk in it, though.

I have seen this movie and I can say it was very descent film. It may not be as powerful as other western movies but it was entertaining. :lol:
