Critic Reviews for 3 And 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets

While “Justice for Jordan” may have been served, the words – and Davis’ story – are yet another reminder of a nation that remains fractured by inequality, desperately in need of change.

A uniquely compelling real-life legal thriller.

The prosecution and defense unfold with the suspense of a Hollywood courtroom drama.

Marc Silver’s moving and illuminating documentary “3 1/2 Minutes, Ten Bullets” reveals a lot about what is wrong in the United States today and a little bit of what’s right.

The straightforward, well-edited trial scenes speak volumes, not only about the defendant, but also about the racism that still haunts our country.

A deep core of emotion gives “3 1/2 Minutes, Ten Bullets” its ballast, but Silver, who also serves as cinematographer, infuses the production with simple, elegant sophistication.

HBO’s new documentary reminds us how deadly threat perception is for black people.

While the documentary itself merely gives the audience a bird’s eye view of the courtroom narrative, it punctuates the point that is too often forgotten in these cases: It is Dunn who is on trial here, not Davis.

Cleanly presented and crisply framed, each image is shot with a respectfully detached gaze, from the talking heads to the twisting Floridian highways shot at golden hour. Sadly, this means that Silver’s treatment of the case feels overly forensic.

We must not just simply remember, we must stand up and demand our humanity. If we don’t, we’ve let Jordan Davis down and after seeing, 3 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets that is the last thing that you will want to do.

What the documentary the filmmakers have assembled is educational, eye opening, often emotional, sad and galvanizing.

3 And 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets is a highly emotional documentary, one that clearly needed to be made.

The JFK 100

The Timing of the Shots

Oliver Stone’s JFK attempts to demonstrate that one man alone could not have accomplished the assassination of John F. Kennedy:

DISSOLVE TO a scene inside the Texas School Book Depository in 1967. Jim [Garrison] and Lou [Ivon] walk the floor and look out the windows. Lou has a Mannlicher-Carcano in his hand with a sight and clip. We see Oswald’s supposed view of the limousine as he pulls the trigger. Now, innocuous traffic goes by, but the iris of the camera tightens into a sniper’s scope.

LOU The Zapruder film establishes 3 shots in 5.6 seconds. Here. I’m Oswald. Time me.

Lou cocks the Mannlicher for the first shot. Jim looks at his watch. Lou assumes the Oswald pose, crouched at the window aiming out.

Lou pulls, quickly recharges the bolt, fires, recycles, fires.

JIM Between six and seven seconds. (1)

There are only two problems here. First, Jay O. Sanders just did get off three shots in under six seconds — 5.6 seconds, to be precise.

More importantly, the Warren Commission never stated that Lee Harvey Oswald fired three shots in under six seconds.

What did the Commission say?

Based upon an evaluation of the home movie taken by bystander Abraham Zapruder, the Warren Commission concluded that

the time span between the shot entering the back of the President’s neck and the bullet which shattered his skull was 4.8 to 5.6 seconds. If the second shot missed, then 4.8 to 5.6 seconds was the total time span of the shots. If either the first or third shots missed, then a minimum of 2.3 seconds (necessary to operate the rifle) must be added to the time span of the shots which hit, giving a minimum time of 7.1 to 7.9 seconds for the three shots. (Emphasis added.) (2)

The growing consensus among assassination researchers is that the first shot was fired at about frame 155 of the Zapruder film, and missed. If correct, this would give Oswald an ample 8.6 seconds to fire three shots.

But, as Oliver Stone himself inadvertently demonstrates, six seconds would also have been enough time to fire three shots from Oswald’s rifle.

How much time does it take to make an animated video of 2-3 minutes duration?

Answer Wiki

It depends on 3 things-

1. If you want a smooth flow-y animation, then you’re dealing with 30 frames per second. So in 3 minutes, 180 x 30 = 5400 drawings. But you can also go with 12 frames per second, which will be stickier, but your style can take care of that. Most anime and music videos follow this format.

2. Don’t be disheartened! Next, you choose your medium. Only if you’re literally doing everything hand drawn, it will take you about a month or so. if you’re doing everything digitally, maybe half that time. A fortnight tops. averaging about 4 hours of work on the film every day.

3. The number of human characters and special effects in your story. There’s nothing tougher than following a character through a story. If you’re focusing on backgrounds and general animation, it will be easier than most. 2d effects are very tough and require a special understanding of many factors of animation.

If you want a simple project that keeps you interested and going, but not too time consuming, I would suggest a simple character going through a world of whatever you fancy drawing the most.

Related QuestionsMore Answers Below

Ok I am going to give you some examples:

Walt Disney took 9 years to make his first animated film on paper.

Disney can push out a full length CGI film in 3 years now.

Studio Ghibli took 7 years to make spirited away

Vivziepop made a 2 minute hand drawn animated music video in 6 months in tvpaint.

The guys at family Guy can composite a 20 minute episode in 3 weeks.

Alan Becker made a 5 minute stick figure animation which took 3 months in Adobe flash.

To be honest, when I tried making an animated music video, I got so much better by the end that I had to restart because my drawing skills have improved so much! And the end was so much better than the beginning. If you want to make a thesis film for SVA or Calarts, they’ll give you a room and you can sit there for 5 month and do nothing but animating!

This could range from a few hours to several days or months depending on the subject matter and complexity of the animation. An animated Explainer video that uses simple cut-out style animated characters, and very limited movement such as a hand wave or shake, and a simple walk cycle can be completed with predesigned puppets in vector animating software (using narration – no lip sync) in a day. However. This style of animation is better known and described as Motion Graphics and not actual animation.

However. A complex fight scene or other detailed scenario (crowd running, castle siege, etc) involving multiple characters, you could be looking at a couple days, if not weeks or months, depending once again on the design and style of the characters and overall animation. (Vector) – Digital is faster than Frame by Frame (Hand Drawn), 3D is slower than 2.5D Paralax (Motion Comic Style).

Some studios can produce 2 minutes of animation in a much shorter time frame. The guys down at South Park produce a full 22 minute episode in six days, from concept to writing, voice acting, storyboards, animatic, animating, editing and final cut. Six days. That is unbelievably fast. But they are a large team of very skilled individuals. This is also not common practice. Most animation studios produce a 22 minute animated cartoon episode in 10 months, with the use of in house animators and artists, and a second team overseas in places like Korea or India to complete the bulk of the work. It is more cost effective and they have larger teams which helps.

3D animated films that have a surreal amount of realism in them – notably the Pixar and Dreamworks features take years to develop, because of the amount of attention to detail in the films backgrounds, layouts, props and character designs. Other studios producing 3D animated features complete projects in a fraction of the time but are less realistic and lack detail. These have short theatrical runs if any at all, as most go direct to DVD and Digital Download.

Bottom line, I would say from experience that this will take a skilled individual working independently two weeks or more to produce 2 to 3 minutes, using simple techniques. A complex animation (frame by frame) will take an individual a good month if not more.

Hope this helps.

As some have stated, it really depends on the type and style of animated video that you’re referring to.

At Gisteo | Animated Explainer Videos | Animated Marketing Videos , we create animated videos for business and our average turnaround time is around 4–5 weeks for 2 minute animated videos. That includes everything from concept to script to storyboard to voice over and final animation. Hope that helps!

The honest answer is: it depends!

If you use Adobe Character Animator you can create the animation in real time (not counting the time required to design and setup the characters.) This system is like using a puppet.

If you want to create a stop motion animated video in the style of The Nightmare Before Christmas, the process can take months.

Don’t forget that a great deal of the time involved in creating any animation involves planning, designing, and other tasks that take place before you start animating the first frame.

If your video is made using a lot of pre-existing assets you can work much faster than if you have to build up all the elements from scratch. You will also work faster if you are very familiar with all of the tools.

A typical explainer video costs anywhere from $500 to $10K a minute. Of course, $500 is the price for the video which most likely was made with standard tools such as PowToons or GoAnimate. And this type of tools may be of great assistance but only in the hands of a professional. Otherwise you should remember that no video is better than a bad one.

The cost of 1-5K for one minute is quite the average budget in the industry. If you suppose it is too expensive you should keep in mind that the video is the investment and the investment produces profit.

Before we turn to the factors influencing the cost let’s look through the stages which every video undergoes regardless the length, style or studio you work with.

10 Fantastic Short Films That Are Only A Minute Long

Every year, Filminute challenges filmmakers all over the world to tell a story in 60 seconds. After combing through all the entries, they’ve created a shortlist of 25 films representing 19 different countries this time around. The online festival features a jury led by Richard Linklater that will pick an overall winner, but there’s also a People’s Choice Award, and voting ends this week.

For innovation, for cleverness, for brevity – here are 10 entries that deserve recognition for their achievements (and your vote if you think they’ve earned it).

10. The Evening Cigarette

Perhaps the hippest anti-smoking ad around, this anime-style work features deadpan, catastrophic proof that cigarettes can kill even when you’re trying oh-so-hard to look cool.

Matthieu Van Eeckhout’s movie comes with a wry sense of humor and an excellent auto insurance policy.

This entry from Chong Yuen Ping is direct but effective. A husband comes home to his wife already in the middle of having supper. Plaintive, he promises to her cold shoulder that he’ll change, but there’s something wrong that can’t be fixed.

Acted with just the right notes of remorse and solitude, it’s a gut punch that aims slightly higher.

8. The Last Performance

Even though the reveal is telegraphed, there’s still a bittersweetness to this movie from Iran that features an old, blind man taking to the stage for the last time. It’s the kind of short that could act as the first scene in a longer movie, evoking all sorts of questions about who the characters are.

7. Migration

This short film from Andrey Levkovitch is simple and stunning. It features a flock of red balloons on a snowy field wandering wherever the wind blows them, and while it’s contemplative instead of plot-driven, the final sequence delivers a delightful how-did-he-do-it magic trick of beauty.

A truly eyebrow-raising entry, this short blends alienating imagery with the very mundane to excellent effect – a bit like shoving alternative universes inside the nooks and crannies.

5. The Veil

Running into a blind alley during the early demonstrations at the start of Egypt’s Arab Spring, a young woman finds brief safety and a bleeding man. Without asking questions, she commits a profound act of humanity and spirituality.

Shot with a sense of urgency (and a small camera budget), this 60-second short from Mohamed Salama is about intensity as much as it is about reflection. The only human voices are the disembodied, dream-like chants from the street punctuated by gun shots, and without any dialogue between the leads, it offers a direct signal about the power of actions over words – especially when they are transmitted from one person to another.

4. Fish Supper

A quirky mini-doc about a dirty old man who fishes for eels every day on the Thames River. Through some strong, vibrant editing, it provides a brief (yet complete) look into a hobby one man loves dearly (and his sense of humor sure doesn’t hurt).

3. The Explorer

Linus really wants his little brother to stop bothering him while he works on an elaborate system of mirrors for a highly important mission in this funny 60-second-long short from Norway’s Alexander Vestnesstraumen and Ola Martin Fjeld.

It’s shot smartly and edited with sharp scissors, but it’s the bombastic score that stands out – driving the drama of this silly, aggravating situation all the way to the punch line.

2. The Present

Intensity distilled into a few seconds, this short features a man arguing with his conscience before performing an intimate, harrowing duty. Shot with stern close-ups and an immediate sense of purpose, it’s the story of a gift that no one wants to give or receive.

1. The Death and Life of Desmond Wolfe

Undoubtedly my favorite Filminute entry this year.

The concept of flipping through brief moments in a person’s life to create a short film is tried and true, which is what makes this outstanding work from Brett Williams and Hayden Phipps that much more impressive. For one, it’s got a beautifully-shot stunt at its core. For two, it subverts that common flash-by-flash exploration of a person’s existence by introducing us to a man who is not at all what he seems.

Top-flight in every department, it’s a stirring little shock of a movie.

English notation for hour, minutes and seconds

I often see English notation about time using the ” and ‘ symbols. I have always mistaken about the two, and even their meaning.

I’m more used to “01:05:56”, for example.

How do you represent the hour, minutes, and seconds using the apostrophe and quotes punctuations? Which is for the hour, which is for minutes, and which is for seconds?

Is it the common way to write duration of time elapsed? Do they have a special pronunciation?

It’s not particularly common for expressions of time.

It’s similar to degrees-minutes-seconds: instead of decimal degrees (38.897212°,-77.036519°) you write (38° 53′ 49.9632″, -77° 2′ 11.4678″). Both are derived from a sexagesimal counting system such as that devised in Ancient Babylon: the single prime represents the first sexagesimal division and the second the next, and so on. 17th-century astronomers used a third division of 1/60th of a second.

The advantage of using minute and second symbols for time is that it obviously expresses a duration rather than a time.

From the time 01:00:00 to the time 02:34:56 is a duration of 1 hour, 34 minutes and 56 seconds (1h 34′ 56″)

Prime markers start single and are multiplied for susbsequent appearances, so minutes use a single prime ′ and seconds use a double-prime ″. They are pronounced minutes and seconds respectively in the case of durations like this.

Note that a prime is not a straight-apostrophe or a printer’s apostrophe , although straight-apostrophes are a reasonable approximation and printer’s apostrophes do occur as well.

The ‘ and ” are widely used in maps. They’re hardly ever used to indicate time anymore. If you use them, be prepared for some strange looks.

The best option is hh:mm:ss . If you’re only showing a pair of digits, the context will tell the reader whether it’s hh:mm or mm:ss .

You can also suffix the digits with the unit, such as 1h 12m 23s but this gets long and if you’re aligning many such intervals it can be difficult to compare.
