How old is Mason? How old is Mr. Cure? Do you want people to know that Mr. Cure is a history buff? Mr. Cure uses Mason’s birthday as his code? How does Mr. Cure know anything about this? Maybe some dialogue. There is a flaw in the story. We are told Mason can’t go into the east wing and then Mr. Cure wanted him to see his future. That needs to be clear. Also, how does this work anyway? How did the image turn back from Mr. Cure to Mason? It can’t be based on each person’s birthday. The story has logic issues. I had to reread the ending twice because I didn’t get it at first and then I realized, oh, I see, Mason will be turning 30 in 12 mins. The problem with this is that Mason told us that he was 27. Why would he lie about his age? So now that you know that he is going to turn 30 in 12 mins then where is the woman? If you want to go with that ending then there needs to be a woman unless Mr. Cure is the one who dies??? That leads to another problem? Why is Mason going to kill someone in 12 mins there is no catalyst? He hasn’t shown us that he hates someone or has that type of personality to do so. Look over the dialogue, try to use that to tell us the story but do not try to be on the nose. Right now, the dialogue feels that way.


Perfect Wedding Short

What I like most about this film is that the characters are very human. Sure, the dialogue comes across as a bit stale and robotically written(don't hate me), but there's still enough of individuality to each character's speech pattern that you can easily identify who's who and what they're trying to emote. The interrupted wedding cliché is of course one that's been spun about in a thousand different narratives, but the fact that this particular story is based upon real events lends it a credence that fiction-only films usually need to strive harder to achieve. I found it kind of surprising and quite interesting that a certain someone decided to still proceed with a certain something, but humans are humans after all, and sometimes--especially durings times of crisis, we need to go through with planned events in order to bury our heads in the sand. For protection. Work on it.


They Never Left Feature

Overall, the script is well-formatted and follows the plot beats pretty good. t may be my own sense of humor, but I did not relate to any comedic tropes you attempted. I don't want to nit-pick this work because I can tell you spent a lot of hours and hard work to make this comes to life. Pun intended. I suggest looking for the screenplays for "Apartment 1303" (Japanese version and the 2007 film based on STephen King's short story "1408". Bizzare events, dramatic beats, character dialogue and horror aspects would assist you in pulling the tropes and thematic elements into the script. I'm not saying it's not good, just that it can use a bit more unpredictability and help with the ending, which a horror fan like myself predicted. Some of my initial items in the first 10 pages are: pg 1. Action line suggest remove the word Neat. Combine "Immaculately clean and organized." It reads a double stating the description. No need to restate this type of music. Streamline the action to, "An Antique RECORD PLAYER plays a vinyl. It spins hypnotically beneath the needle." Do people leave lipstick in the medicine cabinet or on the sink counter? Just asking because my personal experience has been the countertop. Marching = Marches How does he kick the chair if he stands on it? Tip it over, maybe? Great introduction to Darwin. I think you can give a couple of sentences to bring Madeline and Ed motivation or thematic life. As it is, they feel more as supporting characters that are 2-dimensional. The paranormal question from Scotty came out of nowhere. I think even buzzed Darwin would have reacted stronger at such an odd question and seeing FRANK in the closet.
