    All those down-votes… Testament to a broken society. I wonder how many of
    them understand the difference between one self-motivated individual who
    used to have 50 bucks in his pocket, and the machinations of teams of
    seasoned professionals with thousands of studio dollars per day at their
    disposal. Big up!?

    I have a project for you, a series of seperate elevator nightmares. Each
    happening to a different person. The floor that when the door opens –
    water begins roaring into the elevator. The floor that opens to the vacuum
    of space, The floor that opens to the Jurassic, The floor that opens to an
    endless drop. The floor that opens to a wall of flame…you get the

    after a bus just hit the car?

    To be honest I got to say this is as good if not better then the gaff that
    they show on the Sy Fy channel. Maybe you could show them how it’s done ???

    Nice video 🙂 It’s always a serious challenge to make everything alone :)?

  7. James Foard says:

    Very good. Sound score great. Hope to see your movies in a few years.

    cute! Thanks!?

    Awesome film for the budget and point to make it “cliche”
    Fun few minutes. You should try other stuff and branch out. I will check
    out your channel to see if you have done different things, because you seem
    like you could make some great stuff with more time and a better budget.?

    najlepszy polski film jaki widzialem?

    very cliche, well done. The fact that you were able to do that (decent to
    good) with only 50 USD, makes me wonder why there is such crap coming out
    of hollywood for 50 million USD. For 2,000 USD, you should be able to make
    a great feature film length (2hrs) movie. Don’t give it up. For the cash
    (or lack there of) and considering the fact that it was made with tech that
    was 3.5 years ago (comment circa 2013/2014) the CGI and other effects were
    really good.?
