An invitation to eternity

by NPBHS Team 1

Genre: Invitation. We made our film a little bit abstract. Only two adults helped make this film, otherwise made by students of NP Boys High School.


A technically really strong film, with excellent camerawork, editing, lighting and in particular incredibly strong sound design, that presented a slightly abstract tale of inviting oneself to save humanity. Very much verging into the sci fi realm over the assigned genre, but it is hard to take away from how beautiful the film ended up being.

Having been invited to his future new home and given an enternity key, a young boy then interacts with a HER-like interface in 'E.T.I' where he is given a series of timeline tasks to analyse and solve. But staying on track for his quests proves more difficult than expected for our protagonist.

I did really enjoy the meta moments and surreal weird tone of proceedings, but similar to Time Saver by Pie Face in Christchurch, the overall presentation of the film ultimately felt like style over substance, though I will grant you a strong ending did pull things together well, for mine. A stronger, clearer story and you would have been contending at the very least in Taranaki, if not higher up.

Story: 2/5
Technical: 4.5/5
Elements: 2.5/5
Overall: 3/5
