Hotel - The lighting is very yellow throughout, and that can be a good thing when you are going for golds and browns. The soundtrack, and the way "professional-sounding-trailer" mixes with the video is also good. They built a whole set for the 10 minute movie, which can be expensive! The main character looks like he is about to die in the desert at the start, but is able to eventually maneuver through the hotel looking for water. When he sees the table full of food, it is a good bit of sound and expressionalism. He dances with the roasted pig head, and more good audio. After over-indulging himself, he realizes it's a trap. He has become the victim of something that we would lay out for cockroaches.
In the end, it was a bit laggy while he ate himself silly, and the ending could've been more evidential in the fact that we could be the pest in a cockroach's house. But it was also very well made and I enjoyed watching it and will probably refer to it in the future.
Sinnside - Great photography/perspective right off the bat. We get first person perspective via CGI as she follows the trail of candy. There seems to be more of a need to speak, and it is made struggling to be non-vocal. As the little girl sits down at the table, I'm not sure what is going on. More kids come in and order from the menu of seven. A lot of grunting and sighing in lieu of speaking. Lots of greens in this cinematography. Are all the children food for the crazies in the restaurant? I started to lose interest halfway through. But because it's only 13 min I have to ride it out. More green screen. Water sounds. Things that sound gross but really might not be. More slurping sounds as if they are vampires. If you turned off the volume, it would'nt be scary - but they say that about most horror movies. Who knows what the old man was trying to do - why bother trying to figure it out? Oh, all the children are dolls - isn't that cute. Nicely photographed, but uninteresting and forgettable.
