Recent reviews

Really cool use of genre, pulled off the simplicity because the car setting is pretty funny with the guy misunderstanding the hookup for a fancy first date, and the characters struck the balance of super natural but also classic stereotypes. Well written and the mirrors bit building the pace was brilliant. The flyer twist is pretty funny, could've been his plan all along or the trusty backup exit strategy! Nice one guys!

So impressive! Set design, dialogue, score, plot, (obviously lighting and cinematography) all fantastic. I'd disagree that it was 'too much plot', as someone said, I think it was an effective mystery story with a great reveal that was unexpected but simple enough to make sense straight away.
If I were to nitpick I'd say the horse hooves sound, though great for reinforcing the period, was distracting and maybe different atmospheric sounds of the outside world would've established a nice sound scape.
Costumes were fabulous, though the modern hair and makeup stood out to me straight away, otherwise you very nearly pulled off a totally convincing period piece, huge well done!
Pure dramas don't always get the credit they deserve up against comedies in this competition but you can be super proud.

It is a technically polished short with charismatic performances. Historically teams that don't take themselves too seriously and layer in a lot of humor do well and I can see that it has worked out for you here. I'm not 100% sure about the story though. I can see what you may have been doing. Set up the characters so that you don't care when they all get chopped up in the end but I guess the killers could have been fleshed out at least a little. The splatter part of the splatter movie I thought worked well but the transition from we're buying a house to running for your lives was a bit weird.

The Reality of Love is an interesting and fun take on the reality TV shows that are somewhat popular. Watching this for the second time in the screening room I found I appreciated it more than when I saw it in the heats for some reason. Perhaps I felt the sentimentality of the ending wasn't quite earned. It's a very beautiful film though. It's incredible some of the locations that some teams find for their shorts.

What a very avant garde film. Very creative stuff. Quality was as if recorded with a cellphone but all is forgiven. Conceptually a very clever film. I dug it.

Ah man. The first person shots and scenery made this film look very artsy. Very nicely done. Adding like a filter over your film would have made your film look vibrant or gritty. Would have made your shots pop more.

Neat little daydreaming fantasy. A janitor has a rock concert in his own world. Clean shots and sound. I liked this film a lot.

Very nice little animation. Nice breath of fresh air after watching hours of meat flesh…. I mean human actors. :p

A great piece of kiwi cinema! 10 out of 10 must see.
