In Deep

by The Creamery


Slick slick slick pool party driven by a tremendous original synth score, with the thumping electronic reverb creating a feeling of mystery and dare only to find out the film actually had a heart. Honestly team I loved this film and am so pleased it made its way to the national final as I feel that films with such a positive idea often get overlooked in this comp.

In terms of what I liked about this film, colour me extremely impressed at how great this was all pieced together. Beautiful people, beautiful locations and a back and forth approach between our protagonist being drilled in an interview versus the heist being put into action. For me I particularly liked that you didn't just go for the setup and then play it out, but cut to and fro creating a labyrinth of intrigue for me as a viewer. The question of not knowing what the ultimate heist was going to be until the finale left me on the edge of my seat throughout.

I've had more than one person talk to me about whether the film would be as good without the sensational location and beautiful people and yeah, maybe the overall plot is a bit generic, and I would have liked to have seen a little bit more depth to the characters, which I think could have pushed this to top 3 overall.
But here's the thing, the team did have access and equipment and made the most of it, they played to their strengths and there is no way I can judge them on a 'what if they didn't have models and shot the same film on their cellphone'. I can only judge them on making a stellar, beautiful, positive message heist film that played with the genre and audience expectations whilst ticking the element boxes really well. Editing and sound was also sublime. Loved it.

Story: 3.5/5
Technical: 5/5
Elements: 4/5
Overall: 4.5/5
