State of Park

by Crew 36

A dedicated Park Ranger does his part in protecting the park from litterers.


Park Security Ranger with a penchant for giving out fines vs a candy bar wrapper dropper resulted in an awful lot of laughs in this film, which played tremendously well to a crowd when I saw it at the Roxy upstairs foyer screening. Also, how on earth did you do that moving invisible field barrier? It was probably something incredibly simple in After Effects but nevertheless impressed me a lot.

Strong performances by your actors, with a tone reminiscent of SUPER TROOPERS as the stakes continued to get raised from the remnants holding the chocolate bar to something a bit ickier that is also brown...what an ending.

As always, loathe to criticise sound but the 2 people sitting next to me at the screenings both made comments about the sound having issues for them. The main thing we noticed (and apparent here again on youtube) is dialogue sounded a bit watery at times in particular when field sound was included where characters were far away from the camera exploring the invisible field. Definitely not saying bad, just noticeble.

I found it highly entertaining that you combined gross out comedy with your sci-fi requirement, and the antihero element was really well done. Probably went close to the Wellington shortlist, I imagine.

Story: 3.5/5
Technical: 2.5/5
Elements: 4/5
Overall: 3.5/5
