Promised (Short Film) - 2 Archangels. 1 Broken Promise.
« on: April 21, 2014, 03:44:42 AM »
Hey guys, today I'd like to share with you a short film I shot on a Canon 550D/T2i running the Magic Lantern V2.3 Firmware add-on.

SYNOPSIS: Forget Adam & Eve. Forget your understanding of the war in Heaven. Let 'Promised' tell you a different kind of story. The story of a broken promise between Archangel Michael and Lucifer which threatens the birth of Man. Quite literally.

OK, writing as I watch, I'm already loving it, and I've only just got to the title.

Music is great, captions are simple, classy and in a font that complement the subject.  Nicely done!

Having watched the actual movie now, I have about 400,000 questions that make me wish it were a full length movie.  I don't know much about the bible at all and my exposure to Michael, Gabriel and Lucifer come from TV and movies, so unfortunately I don't really understand the movie.  A full length movie that gave the ignorant such as me a chance to learn more would make it much simpler. 

For those who know though, it would probably be much clearer.  That said, I enjoyed the lighting, the angles and the acting was nicely done as well.  I just wish I understood it more now.. lol :)

wow, wow wow man.  Man just from the technical side of this, this is amazing.  It's really making me look at my t2i like "you can do that?" The acting, sound, colors, angles, very very nice.

Hey guys, thank you very much for the kind comments and apologies for taking so long to reply. 'Promised' has since been picked up for distribution so I've had to replace the film with the trailer instead.

@Fyrblade - The story's an alternate take on the creation of Man. It implies that 'Lucifer' is the father of Man and 'Faith' it's mother (Man as represented by her baby bump). Basically, they are Adam & Eve.

I wrote this blog a few years back giving some background info into my thoughts. May shed some further light on it :) http://wolfvalleyfilms.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/controversy-is-short-script-called_02.html

@dookievizion - Thanks, Man. I've seen stuff shot on the 550D that would hold it's own (and then some) against the so called higher spec cams :)

Cheers.
