I didn´t hear anything at first, so I turned up the voulme ALOT. Then when the zapping started, well lets just say my ears are still ringing. No real story at all makes it very dull. It wasn´t funny either. The VOs were made by the same person. Not good. You get two stars, Not badly made but it was a really empty movie.

I had no idea what was going on.... since I couldn't hear it.
And I DID turn up the volume

I couldn't hear the V.O.S. and the story wasn't clear at all. Nice try anyhow.

I don't know ... but I could barely hear what was going on and it really wasn't as funny as I thought it was ... sorry.

Too hard to follow. Wasn't quite sure exactly what the son didn't want to "get on" due to the VOs being too quiet. Probably would have made it funnier if I'd known what he'd said. Nothing too new here. Keep trying. You've got it in you to do some good work!

I'm not really sure this was a comedy. I'm not really sure what genre this falls into. I was waiting for the comedy to come, and it didn't. Sorry.

I would have bumped this to a 4 if they'd had been a better pay-off at the end. I was waiting for a big joke that never came. The early scene selections were not the best and focused on the person not talking rather then the person that was. I do think it hinted at better things to come. Keep on filming.

First of all, due to the VO's being too low, I had to turn my speakers up, and unfortunately the sound effects blasted my eardrums. The plot could've done with a bit more work. The movie could've been better, but overall it was a reasonable attempt.

this failed to score highly with me due to the VOs being quiet in comparison to the automated noises and Sound FX, I also found it confusing when the fathers voice started whilst looking at the son, as most of the dialogue was over the same shot it had no "link" to the character it was supposed to be. This story could also have ben fleshed out more, rather than just being the father abd son, i would have liked to see the reactions from his friends at school etc..

Well, I would say a bit short and the Vo's was really hard to understand...4 stars! Film on!

---[ SHOUJO SHOP REVIEW! ]---

Greetings! This is Kirin, Ari, and Manami of The Shoujo Shop! We have stumbled upon your movie using SkinShack's Review Rotator so that is why this review is written with Kirin's account instead of our joint 'ShoujoShop' account.

The first thing we've noticed is that the volume was somewhat low for us in this movie. We had to set the amplification settings on our mixer pretty high to hear the VOs ... but then again, the sound effects were really loud as a consequence ... so we can narrow it to a few things: quiet VOs. In Windows, you try using the Mic Boost option in the sound volume control panel. It really helps! You can also try normalizing your VOs using something like Audacity.

In the creative side, we seem to relate to it somewhat. I remembered trying to get my braces done-- I did not like it and it made me look like a dork ... but enough of that as Kirin and Manami are laughing at me for it.

Overall, it was a fun a short movie for a first attempt. We kind of wished it was a bit longer though, perhaps by getting to know what kind of feelings this boy experienced after he got his braces and reactions from friends in regards to it.

--[ SCORE: 3.2 ]--

So, only I thought this was really funny? I must be going crazzy or something because I couldn't stop laughing.

Posted on November 6, 2006

Hmm, where to begin?
Firstly the VOs were (as allready stated)too low to hear. This made it very difficult to follow the plot.
So I watched it again, and concentrated. I hate to do that.
Still, the plot made little sense.
The editing seems fairly ok, but you need to work on your script.
Have a wonderful evening.

VOs- too quiet and the sound effects TOO LOUD- again... The movie was too short and the plot wasn't very good, not a bad attempt

Posted on November 6, 2006
- Timo666

A nice comedy! The VO's could have been a tad louder though 'cause I some trouble understanding them despite raising my volume to the max...

Posted on November 6, 2006
- EPANA

A good solid comedy

I found the vo rather funny of course the level compared to soundeffect was wrong so I had to spend some time adjusting the level controls.
Expected also somekind of twist or surprise in the end but did not get one.

So a good solid entertaining movie ..just fix the level problems and the 5th stars could be yours

Interesting idea, VO's were a little quite and the editing/lip synching could do with improvement.

Vo's were a little too quiet, but I understood most of it.
Good movie.

Basically the same as what the others have said; good film, but the VO was too quiet. Sticking in subtitles might be an idea.

I had my speakers blasting, yet your VO's were quite. I would say this isn't your fault but it is because you did not give subs. I am sorry but I couldn't understand the movie's meaning.

Need more work on VOs, story line and lip-sinking.

Posted on October 27, 2006

The VOs were too quiet, so I wasn't able to understand the story...

Bad VO, i didn't really understand what was going on because of the bad VO.

Posted on October 27, 2006

I wasn't really understanding the story as the VO's were way to quiet and the sound effects out if proportion.An okay idea though.

good movie.
good work.
but the vo was really quit.
but i think you know it.

Well, the plot for this movie felt too thin as there wasn't one at all, i wasn't that sure of what exactly was going on in this movie, sorry, but i didn't get it. However I appreceited that you put a good effort into making this movie as the vo's were pretty good, but that made the sound-effects and music way too loud. Sorry to give this a three, but to me it's only an above average movie only just! a weak plot with some pretty good vo's!

It's OK, but the VO were a bit quiet, and I couldn't really understand what was going on.

Posted on October 27, 2006

The sound effects were too loud! Almost blew my ears off while turning the volume up for the VO's...
The story well... hmm... could be better...

The voice-over was too quiet!

Posted on October 27, 2006
- FunkyFilms

I will give it four. You had good voices but there was too long pauses between some of them. Fun movie.

Posted on October 27, 2006
- THROWAXE

It flowed nicely, but a bit long in some places where really nothing was happening.
Hard to understand at times and I kinda missed lipsync.
Nice effort :)

Posted on October 27, 2006

short and funny, but you could've improved with the Vo, and bit better storyine.

Posted on October 27, 2006

that was good, short and funny. make your next movie with more storyline...

It needs more story to get longer..

Film on!!!

It was really hard to hear the VO's, which was quite annoying. I maxed the volume to hear, but the other sound effects got too loud then :)
Quite okay movie though, with some laughs.

Posted on October 27, 2006
- MrMiracle

Well, something happened. Something about someone getting something removed. It was difficult to hear.

Well, this was shot well enough. The movement from scene to scene was logical for the story, I'm guessing. Seemed a little childish overall to me. I'm really surprised that this came from the same studio that made the stellar 'Josh and Will at 18'. This is really a step down from the earlier work.

Not way to bad but your vo's needed to be louder other than that keep up the good work.

ok but the VO's were WAY to quiet

Posted on October 26, 2006
- homemadeeye

well, it was pretty amusing when I put my volume all the way up, but it wasn't that funny, and like I said the sound was really soft.

Posted on October 26, 2006
- HISSTORYMN

Low volume on the VO's really hurt this, however it was very amusing. Scene selection was good and the sound effects added to the comedy. Good work, I would have loved to have given a four but I honestly couldn't hear it, without maxing out my speakers. Even then I still had trouble.

Posted on October 26, 2006
- jamestkirk

LOL!!!!!! Great MOVIE!!! The Sound effects made me laugh on more then one occasion, the voiceovers were well done, the scenes with the father carrying the son were hilarious, the FX when the " DEVICE" was being installed were fantastic! One thing, in the begining of the movie, the dialogue was alittle off synce with which actor the camera was focused on, this could have been a technical clitch, but maybe some FREECAM use could have remedied this issue. KEEP ON MOVIEING!!!!!

Average movie. The VO`s are way under the normal peak. I could not enjoy it, sorry. Next try experiment with the cam angels.

Posted on October 26, 2006
- sweatyshoulder

I'm not sure as if this is worth a four, but I'll be nice and give it that. The VOs were alright, and I loved the clever title which definitely caught my attention. I don't know the experience that the main character of this movie had because my teeth are fine, but you illustrated it out nice. Some good scenes as well as nice sound effects. Just work on your movie a little bit - especially the endings, and you'll be a professional in no time.

Everything was so quiet for the first minute I had to turn my speakers right up. Ok movie, but the ending was a bit flat.

Some nice funny Scenes, but the VOs wasn't loud enough, and I didn't like the ending too much.

LOL! A great comedy! The only improvment that could be done, is make the voices a little louder. I love it!

I didn't know what was happening. First the vo's were very quiet so i could hardly hear anything, so i didn't know what was happening. With that said i don't know whats happening leading to the viewers not knowing whats happening leading to a big mess up. Next time improve your vo's

It was a decent comedy with laughs here and there. The middle is where it shines, and the end has really no conclusion. Nice movie, though and keep up the good work.

Posted on June 14, 2006

An average comedy with some funny jokes. The beginning was very very slow, but it picked up near the middle. However, it ended very slowly with no real conclusion or joke. It seemed like it stopped half way through.
Overall, a good comedy with a slight lack of jokes and no conclusion, but some very good jokes in there.
