Arthur's Adventure

by Nerd Couch

A short, Ironically made Superhero film about a nerdy card owner named Arthur, who has to use his power of imagination to stop the evil 'Teacherer' from banning the Snake Bandit cards forever..


First award controversy of 2021! Your 'Teacherer' should 100% in my book have been up for best performer in Taranaki. Fantastic screen presence, you brought a big grin to my face!

Onto the good stuff though, being a zany effort regarding card game loving Arthur and his battles with the evil Teacherer, who bans the popular game Snake Bandits due to too much fun taking away from character building. Our hero of course has an offhand power, that of imagination, and his villanous oponent may have some deep dark secrets hiding in the recesses of his mind.

The film was bold and confident, with larger than life characters throughout. I was genuinely impressed at the technical quality of the staged newscasts that peppered the film, but the camerawork throughout the majority of the rest of the film felt a little loose, and I felt that narration was relied on a little too heavily. Still, like I said, The Teacherer gave one of my favourite performances so far in this comp. Well done whoever you are!

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

This film was a great watch! The opening scene was really good for capturing our attention and getting us intrigued. The performances by all were fantastic and engaging. I thought it was a really good idea to have the invisible object element drive the story by being the key aspect of the superhero's powers--well done!

I personally loved the invisible remote control turning on the TV moment, haha. And yeah, the newscasts were very well done.
