Overview

Synopsis

"Six Months" is the harrowing and heartwarming story of Luke, an average 18 year old boy who's just been informed he only has six months to live. Depressed and embittered, Luke drops out of school and withdraws; that is of course until he meets Sidney, a girl who just might change everything. She shows him how to find renewed meaning in his life by spend his remaining time doing good for those around him. Luke joins the Big Brother/Big Sister program but the little girl he's paired with is less than receptive. Can Luke build a relationship with his Little Sister, overcome his fears with Sidney, and turn everyone's life around, in only six months?

I have been studying fim for over 4 years and worked on more movies then I can count. I came up with the idea for Six Months originally for a web series but through development it got changed to a feature film. I hope to have this be my first of many feature films.

It's healthy to contemplate our own mortality - but it can be scary and is often avoided. This trailer (and hopefully movie) forces the issue. And was that Ben Folds singing in the background? Make this movie a reality!

great concept, I love how this truly relates to real life. Camera angles could be a tad wider so you can capture the full effect of the scene, other than that its a great trailer.

This could be a really beautiful story with real emotional resonance and all that. Super difficult subject area to act the circumstances of; everybody's making an honest try; it could be ratcheted up several notches, though; it could feel more "life or death." Some simple cinematography things--like how the doctor and patient don't really match together (ie, both are looking to the right) in the opening bit--and some improved sound could make it a lot better. Also, not quite sure what the struggle is; does being a big brother solve the existential crisis? If so, we've seen the whole movie already; if not, what else happens? What complicates things? What does the main character really want/need? Promising stuff; just not quite there yet.

The level of heart and the important subject matter here make up for the lack in skill of the technical aspect. With a million dollars you could hire a great team to fill in those gaps for you. Nice work.

50/50 is strikingly similar to this. I applaud your efforts at tackling a hard subject but this needs a serious rewrite and pro actors.

I like the kids in this movie. They seem real. Despite it feeling slightly unoriginal in concept overall, the trailer had real heart and a story. The rest can get better, but you're starting somewhere solid. Well done.

Taking a real risk with your content, which could polarize an audience. Look/acting/delivery were quite amateur but given appropraite gear/crew/actors it could work. Personally not a huge fan of sad stories - tell me it's got a happy ending "we were just kidding bout yer cancer dude" and i'll up it to an 8
Good luck guys :)

Some nice cinematography, audio is clear (thank god), but I don't know how I feel about this one. The main character's lilt in their delivery makes me not really care about them. Did you get permission to use the Ben Fold's song? That's impressive if so. If you get through you need a recast.. I'm thinking 50/50 may have been an influence on this one.. The few jokes in the trailer don't really sell. Good luck!

Hey Congrats on this trailer. Really well done. You know, as indie filmmakers without more resources and talent than we can pull together through family, friends and colleagues in our immediate communities it's always an achievement when you can still make something that like this trailer. I can tell a lot of heart, effort and thought was put into it. Whoever directed has a really deep respect for filmic grammar and the shot selection felt organic and professional. Even though you didn't have the best camera and sound in the world, you still put together a piece that was compelling and quite moving. Got goosebumps watching and would totally watch this. Well done!

A very touching story, cancer hits anyone, no matter the age. I wish the feel of the video was either a bit more professional or going all the way 'amateur' with camera phones/ smaller cameras to give a more realistic feel. But making film isn't easy and you have a beautiful soul in your intentions.

Sorry - it's a cute idea, but entirely unrealistic - a cancer diagnosis in an 18 year-old? that doesn't get any treatment? An 18 year-old boy being paired up with a 10 year old girl in a Big-Brothers program? And unfortunately, the cinematography and acting isn't up to snuff. Better luck next time.

I think this is a good story and could if directed right with better sound and lighting could actually turn out to be a great movie.

I thought the acting was fair not optimal but not terrible...and editing was great

good luck to you

The acting is just terrible.
The story is semi-interesting.
I know your looking for that documentary look but... Oh you weren't? I suggest a few lighting and camera classes
You need a better sound guy, way too high of a noise floor
ADR was good though.

I gave this a 5 because your editing skills are top notch, in a few years you could be really good, keep it up.

Great job in editing.

Next time, for such a mature subject, it might be wiser to get an older, more experienced actor. An 18 yr old spouting cliches about life sucking and using time wisely (even if he does have cancer) runs the risk of coming off trite to an older audience.
