Giving Thanks to These Films

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the day to be thankful for all we have, and I am thankful for the amazing oppertunities I have been given to make films again and again.

Today, I will be posting about the final versions of “Texts From God,” “Seven Taps,” and “Battle Scars.”

Texts From God

Texts from God from Chris Messineo on Vimeo.

It was a blast acting in this short film, and I am grateful to have taken part in it!

The mMessage effects did great at displaying text messages in a fun and easily-readable way!

The Devil one was my favorite.

Seven Taps

Seven Taps from Chris Messineo on Vimeo.

I am so thankful we were able to make my film, and I think it did a great job at showing what it is like to have OCD attacks. It’s not funny as some shows represent it, it is scary and frustrating.

The LensBaby was a cool and realistic way of showing the internal conflict of a teen suffering from OCD.

Battle Scars

This action film was both fun to be involved in and fun to watch!

Those light sabers look super realistic, so here’s a thumbs-up to those who edited it!

It was also great to utilize mMessage again.

And that music choice was perfect, it completely fits and even adds to the action of the film.

Happy Thanksgiving

Today is the day to be thankful, to be happy about our lives, and to celebrate with those we love. I wish you all the good half of the wishbone, and a very happy Thanksgiving.
