Encounter :- Watch Encounter on Youtube on Fire, Although I’ve never been much of a fan of the found footage type style of film making I did manage to keep an open mind and for the most part. The majority of The Encounter was surprisingly enjoyable. Director Robert Conway manages to keep the variety of scenes esthetically pleasing and seems to understand his market. We’re not bludgeoned with an abundance of shaky camera shots that ultimately just nauseate and frustrate the viewing audience. We get some back ground, exposition in the lives of aspiring campers Collin (Clint James), Megan Drust (Kimberly), Paulina (Eliza Kiss) and Ryan (Louie Iaccarino. The scenes also vary in between the campers, two hunters and a forest ranger. We get a post action sequence from the U.S. government close to the ending of the movie. For the most part the acting is above subpar and the characters are one’s we can get behind and find their individual stories believable. The sequences are mashed up and presented in the form of three separate tales. Once taking an interlude from the campers we see a great deal of first person point of view through the eyes of hunter Trevor (Owen Conway) and his stepfather. The third segues are of a video blog from a forest ranger named Alice (Eliza Kiss). The scenes with Alice at first seem a little bit stilted and over produced. Her lines seem heavily arbitrary and may lose the attention of some viewers.
