Peer Review : The Darkest Timeline

(sam lockie-waring) #21

i might not speak for everyone, but for me, it wasn’t uncomfortable, it was distracting. doing that for one character’s coverage is one thing, because that feels purposeful and pointed, but for all of them i spent more time thinking “is this a different person or do i just not recognize them because the camera angle is different?” than “ok so this is what’s happening in the story.” there’s discomfort, and then there’s distracting, and i think this erred on the side of ‘random and distracting.’ it doesn’t raise tension, because for me to be tense i would have to be able to pay attention, and even though i dug the concept, most of the time i wasn’t paying attention because the camera moves took too much of my brain to decipher ever four seconds when it changed.
