I purposely haven't read the other reviews before I've typed this as like to write then go back and see if others have picked up on similar things.
Nice opening with the sound only option which made the cut to the actress impactful, great way to grab my attention from the get go. Then a clever use of the silent pause while the camera lingered on the wide shot of the two actors before the dialogue starts this added to the mood you were creating. The use of the hand held camera, pan up and slightly canter angles also added to the atmosphere of the film. I would have liked to see perhaps a different color grading, maybe more of a washed out look which may have been a nice addition? The acting from the lead was strong and played her part really well and was believable and i was able to connect with her. I liked the script but would have liked to have known a few of the unanswered questions like, why was her drive so powerful to meet, what was his backstory etc, but I presume you wanted these unanswered and this was you intention. Overall the editing/sound and the camera work was tight and effective. I did find that the males voice didn't quite resonate with me, I personally would have preferred if he had more emotion and instead of being cold and staid in his delivery (possibly another stylistic choice?) This would have enable me to connect with both of them on a more emotional level and then the ending which was great would have had more impact. I did like the full circle narrative which tied up the film and surprised me which was effective and nicely done.
Ok, I've read the other reviews now I clearly didn't pick up that the other actor was death, sorry! Because of the genre I was under the impression that he was her lover/boyfriend who had passed over and was in someway the gatekeeper to her crossing over, hence star crossed lovers. Hope my interpretation now makes my comments make sense, look forward to catching up with Stu and team at the finals to discuss more :)
