Watch Locally, Think Globally

The Tell Tale Heart



The film portrays a man having a friendly chat with a policeman in a room where a dead body is hidden. The man thinks that he has committed the perfect crime, but little by little, he begins to hear a knocking sound. The sounds gradually increase in volume, as if trying to rob the man of his calm. The portrayal will make a stunning impact on the viewer.

The black and white is good. If some suspense can be used, not just telling us a story, I think it would be better.

I sometimes found the black and white a bit stark and hard to take in visually sometimes. But perhaps thats what you need with a disturbing tale and uncomfortable moments. well done :)

sorry, but I think the read-out story conjures up better images than the ones you came up with. too much details, too little magic, and nothing to support the mise-en-scene. at least you have Bella doing his regular good act!

outstanding, the 3d models must be very impressive. its a pity that it is so close to breccia's comic.

A wonderful recreation of a mighty tale from Poe.
