This was a surprisingly touching tale of a romance between a man with anger issues and his girlfriend/partner. They communicated via sticky notes – he used yellow and she used pink – mostly stuck on the fridge door. This was a really effective device. The pair broke up and reconciled before a successful marriage proposal. Nice work but unfortunately disqualified.

Excellent take on the fad genre using postit notes. An emotionally mature film

I liked this film alot. I think due to the passage of time it was able to create, along with a really nice take on FAD. Postit notes are also a great way to advance a narrative. Good job and sorry this one was dq'd

The fad of sticky notes is introduced through the radio - nice! A rather lonely man writes a lot of post-it notes to remind him of stuff -birthdays etc. After a nice montage of his boring life he starts a relationhip with a woman and we are taken, via the post-its and voiceovers though the ups and downs of their relationship. This is actually a very sweet and imaginative story even if I found it a little hard to believe that post-its were the only way people communicated - a comment being made about society though? Technically very good with a nice soundtrack being used. Very good performances by the two leads and post-its covering breasts is always going to go down rather well. Shame about the DQ -you may have been finals bound.

These guys have been at it for a few years now, and making some fairly entertaining little films, but this piece represents a huge step up in quality and sophistication for Upshot. A really inventive take on the Fad genre requirement, our main character and later his ladyfriend use post-it notes as their primary form of communication. Which on (sticky) paper may sound like a bit of a gag, but in this film it turned out to be an amazingly effective device for propelling the narrative along, and giving the film a terrific focus. Just one idea done well. And the scope of the story is actually pretty big, tracking a relationship through all the classic romance stages with great efficiency. This was easily my favourite film of the heat, and I look forward to next year's offering from this team.
