The Day My Fish Died Adam Greves

The Day My Fish Died

by Adam Greves

“Beautiful shot and art directed with a real sense of the cinematic. It’s relatively familiar territory but the film paints a disturbing miniature of a teenage sociopath that lingers for a long time after viewing. For me, the voice over device is a limiting factor and it would have been interesting to pose the challenge in development as to how the writer/director might have told his story without it. I think that it might have made for an even more effective piece. But really well-done to all involved.”

Losing It Adam Berry

Losing It

by Adam Berry

“A real sense of fun permeates this short. Great use of locations, particularly the “denouement" on Brighton Pier and a well-shot/cut chase sequence. I’m not sure that the central story driver is really enough to carry the film, even at this length, and the characters veer a little bit too close to cyphers and caricatures for my tastes at times. A little more time on script development and nailing the overall tone of the comedy would I think have paid dividends. However, it great to see a short that unashamedly sets out to entertain.”

Out of Order Diana Juhr DeBenedetti

Out of Order

by Diana Juhr DeBenedetti

“Good performances and confident direction. The set-up is familiar but the film provides a genuinely unsettling (and ambiguous) jolt at the end. The move into darker territory is bold but, for me, jars a little given the banter and playfulness between the two central characters that’s gone before. In maintaining its primary goal of keeping the audience second-guessing and providing a satisfying twist, the film may be stretches its characters and story too far. However, it’s a very promising work and I’ll be interested to see what the team does for a follow-up.”
