Then I thought what if I made it a film critique instead?
The idea is this: it's really hard to get a legitimate critique of the movie. Either the "nice" kicks in and folks get very noncomittal, or they have a bone to pick and just trash the idea of its very existence.
I'm too close to it. I've lived and breathed it, seen it over and over again, and I've lost all objectivity. What I'd like is some honest, clean critique. What you like, what you don't like, what works, what doesn't. I need concise information, not comments like "well that sucked" or "I don't know".
I don't exactly know how to put that together. I like the idea of a focus group, but should there be discussion? Should I allow each person to write their comments privately and anonymously? Both? Neither?
I want to improve as a filmmaker. I think part of the way of getting there is figuring out what I've done good and bad from some more objective sources than I can possibly be at this point.
If you're interested, let me know. It will most definitely be post-Omegacon if it happens at all.
