Film Description
So here it is, my new movie, Life Through an Eye.

What is Life Through an Eye?
Life Through an Eye is a drama/romance with focus on hope and the hunt for new satisfying things. It is a emotional ride, that hopefully will make you cry, laugh or even think about its message. Its a film with alot of different layers of aspects, which makes the whole character development more interesting. The film is around 30 minutes long, which has been quite a challange for me since Im used to make movies with a rather short length, but in the same way, it has been a quite funny challenge too:=).

The Characters
In the movie we will follow four different main characters. The Doctor, The dying patient, The Bartender and the Beauty, all with their own personal problems, but that when it all comes around somehow seems connected. And to make the characters alive, I have been blessed with some of TMO`s best actors and actresses.

I won't try to go into minor details about how good the camera work was or the perfect selection of music or even the superb voices of the actors.
I won't try to explain how the script was well written, how it was believable and how it can connect with many people on many levels.
All I will say is that you touched my soul, and I will not forget that there is love out there.

Absolutely brilliant. Normally, I have something smart and funny to say, but at this moment i don't. This Movie was just incredibly beautiful to look at and a joy to listen to. Great work.

What a wonderful and charming movie. An excellent cast delivers their lines with feeling and emotion as needed to a tailored made script that is only enhanced by the editor's knife. The way this set of stories unfolds and presents itself is a display of talent from the director and is the cornerstone of this movie's clever style. I think this is a MUST SEE film provided viewers are interested in committing to its thirty minuet runtime. This movie is at times slow to making the little points of it's message and can not be rushed. This allows the viewer the chance to think and develope with the film with the film and I, for one, like that a lot. An OUTSTANDING FILM! All involved should be very proud!

What a fantastic film. Great dialoguue that is acted very well. Kudos to your VAs, and to you for writing the words for them. The direction is also superb. You are creative enough in your shots, without taking away from the story.

The story itself (or rather all of them) are very realistic and certainly evokes empathy from the viewer. You have done a marvelous job conecting with the audience.

Your use of music is also very effective.

In short, it is a fantastic film, well worth 5 stars.

Long and lugubrious, full of fantastic moments and fragments of haunting beauty, Life Through an Eye startles and moves beyond all expectations. Jolting in its outrageous, dreamlike surrealism while touching and poignant nonetheless, Ralfduran�??s movie is one full of heart and sincerity, demonstrating the interconnectedness of all human life and happiness. Featuring dazzling cinematography, a complex screenplay that sails through so many different lives it almost startles, and the mystic iconography associated only with deeply strange motion pictures, the movie reaches a fever pitch intensity that almost moves the viewer to tears.

Although all of the voice acting in this film was especially powerful, I feel a special mention should be made of GoofParade, who delivers a soul-stirring performance that, quite often, sent shivers down my spine. Absolutely brilliant.

A tremendous and moving experience.

The Archaic Awards

Story: 10/10 A very powerful story. It was told in a pretty good way. However I lost interest at time so I recommend that you find ways to keep your public interested. This was a story that was so thought out though that I have to give it a 10.

Music: 5/5 Music worked overall. Good selection.

VO/Subs: 10/10 A GREAT voiceover cast. You really chose them well.

Script: 5/5 A wonderfully powerful script with some great messages. Great job.

Extras: 6/5 Mods and freecam were great! The freecam really enhanced the movie.

Editing: 14/15 A little bit too long and dull in parts. Other then that the movie was all around good.

Final Score: 50/50

This was a touching story that actually brought me to the verge of tears! It was intense. I loved the message you delivered. I feel like no review I could write can do this movie justice. This movie deserves 6 stars! The music was great, the voice actors were astounding, and the movie itself was a masterpiece. I'm bookmarking this, and I can't believe I didn't watch it sooner!

You, Sir, are a great writer and director. I loved this, 30 minutes just flew by. Poignant without being saccherine, a fine line to draw, but you did it perfectly. All the VAs were great, but special kudos to Goofparade, a special performance I thought.
One very minor quibble: you write wonderful lines for your actors, but sometimes the music was almost too loud to hear them. Trust them to deliver and turn the music down.


P.S. I really don't like your Studio logo. It is almost strobe like, very annoying to my eyes.

Well, that was pretty much one of the most moving films I have seen on TMO. Great VOs. A wonderful script. Great direction. An amazing arrangement of music. This will surely go down in TMO history as a great film. Wonderful job here!

Ralfduran, whoever you are, you deserve to work in the real film industry. Who knows? You might already!

I do not know what to say. To mention the particular aspects of this movie seems sacrilegious as this flick truly has to be considered a masterpiece and speaking just about parts of it is like ripping this whole thing apart.
I really like the idea of using an episode-like way of story telling by also intertwining and tying the different plots together.
The voice actors (especially the dark sarcasm of John) are top notch and the choice of music underlines the scenes just perfectly.
This movie is emotional and touching, makes you think and is never �?? albeit the length �?? boring or does seem to long.
As I said, words are just insufficient to convey the force this movies has �?? you have to watch it yourself to find out.
Highly recommended!

Fantastic! I had no idea what the movie was about when I recorded my lines and that made it all the more enjoyable to watch. I had to really try hard not to sob at the end of it.

I was slightly confused by the whole money thing but apart from that it's a damn perfect movie. It reminds me lots of the movie Magnolia and since that is one of my all time favourite films means that this is a winner with me.

I think all the Voice acting was perfect (with the exception of mine as I'm always critical of my own work and would have done so many things differently now) I'm so happy that things worked as well as they could for everyone in the end.

I will probably watch this movie again and again, so don't take it off line too quickly :)

A masterpiece! I loved this dude. It was an excellent romantic drama!! By far, the best romantic drama on TMO ever!!! I was really glued to the screen and wasn't bored at all throughout the whole duration of this movie! A very creative beginning. The camera-work was incredible and the film was just so beautifully shot!!! Top job there. The cast was stunning, not to mention K4, who did an amazing performance, along with Goofparade, stunning work.
All of the cast was exceptional, but there are two people in the cast that definatly stand out for me!!!! The music was really spot and worked so well for this film. I really did enjoy this movie. The story was very good, it felt as if it was the right length, it was really well paced and worth all those 30 minutes!!!
By far, the longest, most touching and enjoyable romantic drama on TMO right now/ever!!! The editing was impecable and really professional. I am so glad I decided to go off and watch this new film of yours dude. I really enjoyed every minute of it, it was so well done and so professional. It felt so much like a real film. Excellent narration at the end, it nicely wrapped up the film. The amount of work that has gone into this production is really off-the-scale and really can be seen from watching the film, e.g. An amazing cast, fab music, impressive camera-work/overlays and loads of modded/custom content. And so much more!!!
Overall, A very enjoyable romance movie. I was really touched by this film, it was very moving, emotional and very entertaining throughout! Thankyou very much for entertaining me. Before I always loved your nice short movies, which were excellent, but here you've made a real block-buster that I know will get a lot of acclaim and awards. There's no doubt about it that this film is exceptional and a smash hit. I will close with saying that the dialogue in this movie was beautifully written, the script was a hot one!!! I am just so eager to see what you release next on TMO dude as I was literally blown away by this film.
Fabbo. A very nice effort and the final product is definelty very well put together and completly flawless!!!
Without a doubt your best movie ever on TMO!!!!!
Awards: 100% Overall Movie percentage
Two big thumbs up and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

This film has echoes of many of your prior films' themes, and it is good to know you're expanding upon your visions. Jumping back and forth between apparently different tales and characters while tying them together thematically is always an interesting spin on traditional storytelling. I did find it hard to hear Laura's lines as her voice was not balanced with the other performers'. Speaking of performers, you had some magnificient voice actors here (most notably Goofparade and K4). It's always a joy to hear them ply their art. Like many of your films, I did not understand all that you tried to present (and thought the man in the gorilla suit speaking on the cell phone more comical than philosophical/allegorical). Thanks for letting me be a part of one of your visions.

A stunning achievement Ralf that moved me.I felt a personal connection indeed.
Great job,

Next time I would balance the levels of the voices a bit more, maybe get a custom composed score,

A touching and well directed movie.

Posted on May 12, 2007

Absolutley amaing. Goofparade and K4 where absolutely incredible their performances where some of the best ever on tmo and I am honored to have been a part of this cast as everyone was awesome The visuals where awesome. Music was perfect and the editing awesome Great Job Cornelius

We look thru a keyhole at a thought provoking, intellectually stimulating movie that offers us an opportunity to dwell alongside a handful of characters that are unique in their own way while sharing a universal commonality. ===K4===

This movie is an emotional masterpiece! Such a touching story. The cast was wonderful! As was the choice of music!
My Favorite Line:
"Reality Sucks" - The Doctor
Overall a wonderfully crafted film, and my only suggestion being that you do a better job of evening out the voices next time. Laura was bery hard to hear at times.
