My First Short.

I made this short to see if my friends and I could do it since I've got a bigger idea that will require more resources.

Let me know what you think and any pointers/criticisms are welcomed and encouraged!

A little oddly absurdist to have made pasta and eaten pizza, I thought. Left me scratching my head instead of laughing. The doing dishes with beards was a good bit, though!

I think it probably would have been better to have more of the crazy sounds in the room itself, but I can tell from the last line, you didn't have a very good recording environment in there. Did you have a boom op to get as close as possible?

Because you were trying to make the sfx so much bigger than the environment, I could hear some of the low noise as they came in/out. So, it might be worth doing some noise reduction and/or EQ on those. Oh, and a few of the ripping sounds had a little more low end than I wanted to hear. Almost sounded mic-bump-ish to me.

In your sfx mix, I was also looking for a little panning, especially when sounds are happening offscreen.

Interesting music choice - was that from a Bach cello suite?

Overall, I liked the people onscreen, and your ideas were pretty good. Keep working at it!

Hope this helps!

It was good. The sounds really were quite over-the-top (in an effective way).

It was cool how they all were so happy once they were "working together" at the end.
