Film Description
Autumn can bear a bitter harvest.

Where does the border of love blur into the frightening world of obsession? From the mind of Trewill7 and brought to haunting life by AnotherNewDawn, comes a poetic narrative that examines the mind when twisted by the trappings of love.

A bold, inventive film, mosaic-like and quite beautiful in the way it distills sadness and insanity through the use of static visuals and A_N_D's haunting narration. In many ways, I am reminded of Chris marker's La Jetee, not only because of the obvious stylistic similarities, but also because both films explore the link between life and death, performance and identity.

Again, Tre shows that he is a master visual stylist, and A_N_D creates another brilliant, lived-in character.

This is a splendid, well-crafted film. I am glad to see more films like this coming out these days...

Not Bad.

Not exactly a horror

Okay, this film wasn't what I was hoping it would be, especially from you trewill7. It basically had no purpose and was just a poetic short film. The voice over was rather reedy and croaky and at time hard to comprehend. Just a little disappointed, but well done for your hard work which has obvioulsy been put into designing the themes, voiceovers, backdrops, overlays and sound effects.

Rated: NR

Graded: B

Trewill, first I will like to say that I thought this movie showed a lot of meaning to this character. The thing is though is that I thought it needed just a little more to it. I just wanted a little more about the tree and the guy keep coming every autumn. If you did slightly more of it, it would show a heart full of meaning. But look on the bright side. You're nominated for jakechief Awards!

Very haunting, very chilling. A great work of imagination superbly brought to life by A_N_D's VO.

Horror doesn't have to be blood, guts and entrails and I think this movie proves this.

A fine piece of work all round. Well done to everyone involved.

Beautiful, yet terrifying, a tree in autumn has to be one of the best stylistic art house films of the year. From the superb visuals to the chilling vocal�??s of A_N_D , this film delivers on every aspect. 5 stars.

It's hard to write a review of that without giving away the surprise.

But excellent VO, music and visuals (in a sort of series of static shots which worked well). The poem was very good too.

This poem has an Edgar Allen Poe type of feeling to it, clever use of visuals, great music, and a deep haunting voice narrates is a symphony to the eyes and ears.

A Short Movie here by Tre, but what a brilliant movie it was, a film so simple shows that it can still be a masterpiece, some great voice acting
by AnotherNewdawn giving a dark portrayal of a man blinded bu madness as he commits murders aganst his former lovers.
A truly brilliant movie here by Tre, with some great camera angles and simple but beutiful set dressing make this a masterpiece of film making.

Well Done Tre.

***** - 5 STARS

Brilliantly haunting!

A_N_D , as per usual, captivates you with a powerhouse performance that sells not only the role, but the film itself. My hats off.

The creepy and well written story unravels with Tre's unique film making style that we all look forward to and this does not disappoint. Ever surpassing his previous projects, Tre delvers another high caliber film.

Twisted. But superb and eerily beautiful.
I loved the simplicity even though the feel and flow of the plot unfolded and revealed darker meanings.
Excelently made and a visual treat.
Well done!

Winner of the DUH-YAMMmmmmm AWARD! Brilliant presentation by the creative genius of Trewill. There is no dispute that Trewill is today's reigning King of professional TMO moviemaking. Each offering is unique, fresh, and a wonderful example of how to showcase and push the boundaries of THEMOVIES. A_N_D shows again why he is a killa! WOW! Wonderful music choices too, Tre! BRAVO!!! ===K4===

Different, disturbing, thought provoking and gorgeous.

Yet to be remotely dissapointed by Tre, but just can't see it happening because, let's face it, the guy's just too damn good!

The visuals are kept to a minimum, allowing the full force of this haunting piece of literature to shine through the deep, equally haunting and uber befitting VOs from Jason...a precise and brilliantly executed balance of words and visuals.

Nothing short of beautiful perfection. I loved your choice of using stills throughout, and not just simple screen captures, but stylized and tweaked to match your overall vision. Wonderful choice of music, and delightful use of sounds as well. Truly beautiful.

Wow - this is beautiful and chilling, Tre & A_N_D. In a simple, stripped back way it pushes the boundaries of what The Movies can be used for.

Congratulations, Trewill.

I can't thank you enough for coming to me with this beautiful terror. With this role, that of Prufrock, and Dignity's Interrogator, I have the contenders for my top three favorite TMO roles.

And thanks to all of those who complimented the performance. Tre is the real man with the real plan, however... I just said stuff out loud - he created it.

Thanks most to you, Tre, for trusting me with your work. I'm honored and proud to have worked with you yet again, and I think we did a good thing with this one - a very good thing.

Chillingly beautiful. Brilliant use of color and sound are stunning. Anothernewdawn gives a breathtaking performance with his melodious deep voice. Most asuredly an art house masterpice.

First off very cool use of colors (as alway) with a rusty autumn tint over everything. Secondly I love the presentation, using seemingly 0 animations but letting the viewer build their own in their heads. Short sweet and concise. Ending was a hair abrupt but then then endings usually are....or else they wouldnt end...no wait that releationships. Never mind.

I never experienced poetry like that, from the eyes of an killer. If only there were more, or more conciseness to be had, then it would be complete, but nice film here.

"Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted" ~Percy Shelley

Like Shelly said, poetry can make the distorted machinations and monstrosities of men into something beautiful and here we find a perfect example of that very quote.

Solid work Tre and likely my favorite VO by my friend A_N_D.

Beautiful visuals and a deep and hypnotic monologue makes this an exceptional and true representation of art on TMO

Now THIS has bucket loads of originality

Good Job

Disturbing, mezmerizing, haunting, beautiful, creepy, colorful, amazing, and artistic. Simply sublime in every way. Astounding overlays and a delivery that would haunt you to the bone. Excuse me while I go take a cold shower to wash off the case of the heebie-jeebies you just gave me.

Fantastic. I don't I've ever seen a movie like this on TMO that just uses still shots. Brilliant work. Incredible VO too. Extremely haunting yet beautiful to watch. Great job and continued success!

Can you please review my movie: Zombie Island. Thanks.

Poetry the trewill way.
Loved the colours and the still images. Beautiful to look at, and disturbing to listen to. Nicely done.
And what can you say about the delivery? Great performance from the best around.

And very, very haunting! How the wonderfully coloured images, the quiet music and sounds merged with A_N_D's perfect, menacing and shivers inducing narration of the darkly poetic words - perfect, just perfect says it all!

A Tree in Autumn is a dark character exploration that yeilds some haunting results.

First and foremost I absolutely loved your use of colour to portray an extremely vivid yet serene scenario. It's simplicity allowed a stand-out monologue to be delivered by A_N_D, who I must say nailed the role with such deep and unforgiving tone.

The expressive overlays were meshed and fused well into the piece, which kept it's pace fluid.

It is extremely satisfying to see you branch out into this style of filming, which is both artistic and eccentric. Your creativity and vision has allowed a different side of your film-making to be showcased and I thank you for that.

I look forward to your next project, but until then..

Nuke Well in the Gentle Breeze!!!

The Trewill special night continues for me as I now watch A tree in autumn =)

Woah, man, first off, I must say that AND pulled off that exceptionally well-written monologue to perfection. An artistic film like this needs a great VA for it to work effectively, and AND nailed it on the head. Dark, and haunting are probably the best words to describe the film. Very atmospheric and you managed to capture a mood that I can't quite explain. Overall, the buried secrets of the tree was a little predictable, and I was kind of expecting that sort of twist to come along, but this sense of predictability did nothing to take my eyes off what was unfolding.

Due to the short length, it's not anything thought-provoking and deep as I would have liked it to be, but what we have here is certainly a captivating and atmospheric little artistic film that draws you in, and spits you out after 3 very quick minutes. Fantastic overlay-work too.

Cool stuff Tre! ^ ^
