Audience Feedback Consensus

Positive: First off, the audience and a overall positive opinion on the duel sequence. Most comments talked about the use of close ups, the soundtrack, the costumes and the actors - all 'believable'. I'm really happy with the response. They mostly seemed to enjoy it and think it was 'exciting' the feedback has boosted my confidence in the duel scene.

Negative/Constructive: This mostly centered around things I already haves plans to alter/do, mostly with regards to completing the effects and sounds (of the gun). With some few comments relating to Charlie's character, the main bag guy, who doesn't do much the entire duel making his character rather 'uninteresting'. Which is something I can't really change at this stage.

I'm planning on uploading the current cut of the duel onto youtube to show on the blog for reference.

The Magazine and Poster

Plans: I've made the decision to use Sight & Sound as the magazine I will review my short film through. I'm currently writing the article which will feature a review/behind the scenes information on the film and then a short interview with the director to fill in the gaps left by the article on the page.
Updates: I'm keeping print screens of every step through the creation of the magazine so at the end I can post a step by step powerpoint of the creation of the magazine with my commentary on how I created/designed it.

Plans: So far I've created a template of sorts for my poster and from that I need to begin creating it in photoshop properly. I used some photos from the location scouts as place holders and discovered a layout I really liked and thought reflected the narrative/tone of the short.
Updates: I think with the poster I'll update it as I go along as opposed to the Magazine updates that I want to do in one post. This can give a view on how it develops and my choices as I progress.
