The quest for redemption of young robert young

Pretty damn well produced. Again with the dslr depth-of-field look, but well executed. Idea could have been a bit more fleshed out. The dialogue scenes were strong, I would have liked more of it. edit: What was up with the cuts? If that was a stylistic choice, I wouldn't do it next time.

I'm Actually There

GENIUS. I don't know if this approach has been taken before in 48hours, but it's totally worth watching just for the concept. The almost dispassionate narrator went well with his disembodied image. Sadly there was no foley for the ninja fight at the end, so it suddenly became awkward and confusing... I'd love to see it with that fixed

Claymore

Fun revenge with big sword theft and probably beheading. Pretty relaxed production.

Beard I be without you

Dude's beard takes off on him for being a dick to everyone. Good times stop-motion beard escape times... Bummer the victorious beard/face reunion wasn't shot *before* he shaved!

Hot Knights: The Bob, Rob Medieval Bod Swap

Medieval Moffilaide madness! 2 knight dudes seek the gem, and so does their jerk knight nemesis (guess who). Shockingly, a wizard is watching, who also wants the gem. He teams with jerk knight and (via spell) switches him with a goodie. Jerk pretends to be goodie to score gem. Eventually, everyone learns and changes, and has to fight the wizard. Sweet visual gags, totally rule as always. Such good, good times to watch.

Breadcrumbs

Really nicely shot, looked like a DSLR, but actually used to tell a story clearly for once. Looked like a young team, but their dialogue seemed well devised and pretty natural. Quite earnest and mature, it had a different flavour to all the other films. Liked how the cast all had characters, even if they minor. Ultimately didn't quite pay off, but a team to watch in future.

Crossroads

3-way Mexican standoff for some kind of inheritance. Some cool vibes and performances, but let down by a lack of lighting and resolution of story...

Dark Side

Disqual'd. Unfortunately got interrupted at a key moment and re-started. Looked/sounded nice, natural acting. DSLR got pretty wild in second half, too much depth of focus chicanery.

Heart of Wire

Not really a musical/dance film in the end. Set in a bunker before going 'over the top'. Makes a wire flower for his wife/daughter before sacrificing the whole battalion to their inevitable deaths. Good performance from the main actor and nice piano score.

Super Self Me

Psychologist creates a monster of murderous self-confidence. Pretty funny moments and some good performances.

Bloody Mary

So. Bizarre. You have an actor. You have a corridor. Do you film the actor walking down the corridor? No. You film the actor walking on the spot, then film the camera travelling down the corridor, then combine the two. Why? I don't know, but when it you do that for everyone, everywhere, it becomes awesome.

The Grate Cheese Caper

A family affair about a great cheese heist gone wrong. Bit relaxed on locations and art department and casting, but decently shot and the idea was clearly communicated. Didn't quite suit the available cast, but they obviously had fun making it. SWEET team intro!

3-way Mexican standoff for some kind of inheritance. Some cool vibes and performances, but let down by a lack of lighting and resolution of story...

Sammy

Intense. Simply and economically shot, this powerful dark drama almost hit all the marks for me. The young actor couldn't always match the intensity the script demanded, but the Mother was very powerful indeed. The danger of falling into the LTNZ tvc vibe is there, but ultimately it's better than the ads themselves, so: win.
