S3 E78 Film Review: Torn Seas (May 2023)

This week, Ricky, Phil and Damien discuss Torn Seas – a feature made with Unreal Engine, by Richard Boisvert.  We don’t often review feature-length films on this show, not least because few are brave enough to make them, and we talk about that aspect a bit too.  Overall, we were impressed by this film but we also have a few suggestions to consider.  

5:21 Cinematic Design. 
9:35 Difference between Ricky’s tolerance for sentimental stories and your tolerance. 
11:22 The problem with Pixar and Unreal. 
15:42 The value of screenwriting and narrative. 
20:24 Voice acting and sound effects. 
24:24 The role of a script’s ambiguity. 
28:47 Learning as he goes along. 
30:44 A kind of audition for Hollywood.
