Hello everyone, today I am here to share my first experimental short "Cyberlin" it is set in the city of Berlin in a future where Cyberpunk and neo-noir rule.

So I hope you guys enjoy this short and I hope Roger Deakins has time to watch it too.

Not Roger,

Interesting short. It seems to be a collage of SPX edited to resemble a story of some kind. Very nice photography and camera angles joined by a great sound track but again it was difficult to understand who was doing what! The editing was very good and timed nicely to the music especially the crescendo near the end. I think that this was a extremely good effort but lacked a storyline which resulted in a series of complicated night shots knitted together with a music track.

Properly planned with perhaps some dialogue, this could have been a really good short movie. Making a short is perhaps one of the hardest things to do as you only have minutes to convey your story to the audience, the script is everything so make it easy for the audience don’t let them do all the hard work. 

You have shown that you can handle a camera and make nice images now show what else your team can do.

It’s only my opinion for what it is worth.

Opening sentence should read SFX not SPX.

Hello Mike

Yes, I do know the story lacks (a lot), but I purposely made that decision because in my last projects I was always worried about the story and less about the cinematography, but this time I decided to go full on cinematography test my limits and see what I am capable to do.

Thanks a lot for your opinion on the project that means a lot to me.

I think you have accomplished what you set out to do, your photography is very good. Look forward to seeing your next one.
