“Intercanvi” by Alex Amengual

This is just an absolute charming film. Alex is a master of his craft. Wonderful subtle camera movements used only when motivated. Editing is incredible with excellent time compression. Framing and screen direction stupendous.

I love this film. It's story, acting, cinematography, wonderful sound design & music make it one of my favorite pieces on the web. Nothing was left out. It moves you with the interplay of it's characters. The sublet looks, the smile to camera at the end. I wouldn't change a thing, it's perfect. Kudos to Alex and his vision. ~Steve

    The shot at 1:41 was nice, and the coloring was pretty swell… but I don’t understand the shutter choice. I was distracted by it the whole time…(It seems they’ve never heard of ND) I also thought the jello in most of the beach Dolly shots looked pretty awful.

    These were directorial choices. To be honest, I did not notice the rolling shutter effect, I guess I was to wrapped up in the story. content is king and I’d much rather watch a film like this then a piece with pretty pictures and no story.

    You’re getting soft…this is the second video about making a video (sorta) that you’ve liked recently. 😉
    I am totally with you though! This is a BRILLIANT film with everything just awesome.
    If it was shot on mini-dv, it would still be epic.
