    Watching the BTS was really awesome. It was cool to see the SP7 guys in a "serious" light. It's not that I ever doubted their approach or the passion they've expressed for filmmaking. It was just something so different from what we're usually presented with. Yes, we have the podcasts, but those always have jokes and what not. I don't know if I'm expressing this clearly. I'm not complaining about any other context we've seen SP7 in; I just really enjoyed this new context. You could see that they were clearly having fun filming (jokes were made here and there), but what really got me was seeing them "flip that switch" and go into a different mode. It's incredible how much was done in such a short time, and I absolutely cannot wait to see what else their creativity brings us.

      -- I dont understand the need to include Stevens dad story. It did not have a lot to do with his overall performance as a character. I mean if the film was longer I am sure that there could have of been more played out with it, but it seemed kind of a lackluster addition to current syuzhet.

      I think the purpose of the dad story was just to explain why the character was so melancholic and spacey and/or a set up to show the close relationship between James and Steven.

      I have a feeling they were probably going to incorporate more into that part of the story but had to cut it short due to the lack of time. Just my guess.

    That fucking monster makeup, though.

    The monster actually looks amazing. And although like many I would criticise the heart to heart scene for not really moving the plot forward, it was actually one of my favourite bits of the short because the interaction between James and Steve's characters felt really genuine. Great job guys, looking forward to more stuff like this from you in the future!

    The little time you guys gave yourself to make it reminds me of the Colchester Film Festival and their 60 hour film festival, such a rush to the finish line.

    Based on the resources they had access to and everything I really would have thought that the short would've been twice as long.

      I'm not sure we watched the same BTS...

      I liked the short, but just like a lot of other people, it's a common sentiment, I would have liked the short to be twice as long. I was really impressed to see the amount of production they had together for this and I think they could have output way more because they are capable of it.


      Not shitting on them, just saying that in reference to some of their other work, I expected a little more. The episode where they kill park had similar production appearance, and was about 3/4 the length of the Woods.


      @Tophersaurus_Rex Yeah we definitely did. I think they showed a lot of creative prowess and were really well organized despite the truck mishap etc. Based on the way the BTS put things, I thought they could've made the Woods longer. The fact that they didn't is understandable but imo I would have liked to see them take as much time as they need on the short to fully flesh it out instead of the product we got now that, while good, isn't fully fleshed out by any means.
