June 1944. The allied troops have landed in Normandy and are fighting in France. A group of seven Dutch resistance fighters receive an important mission to help the allied advance into occupied Europe. However, the mission goes horribly wrong and while the resistance fighters regroup at their safe-house, they are starting to suspect that there is a traitor in their midst.
We know what you are thinking: “Another World-War II, a film in regards to how bad the Germans were during this time and a small group of resistance fighters. Wrong! ” it is not the case.
There is a storyline within this twenty-plus-minute short film that is relevant post-war. There are not many films that would tell a story of the various resistance parties that were working with the “Allies” during this time as well as some who would give away the position of their own.
Remarkably the set of the film captured the closed confinement of pressures that existed during a time when everyone was tested by loyalty in order to survive.
They were fighting for their country as well as maintaining hope that they would be supported.
The filmography is superb in this film and the soundtrack will keep you in suspense. The action throughout the film does not overlap the script objectives.
“An uplifting documentary celebrating the lives of love ones who has perished by a group of friends. Never mind the technical part of the film– This is a must see and would be considered an example set for us all. “
– Philip A. Mc Carthy
Independent films are created to cater to a small number of people that had intentions to entertain their audience. “The Road To Reminiscence” presented by Redonkulous Entertainment are transparent with their objectives.
This film is about the bond, tenure and unity of family amongst a group of friends that celebrate the loss of loved ones within a community. The documentary is their continued eulogy from each family member complimented by musical compositions by which each nine-member team member of Redonkulous felt towards their family member.
The idea of turning their united grief into a one hour and forty-four-minute documentary is not only remarkable but also an eternal display of the inspirations left behind from the perished souls.
Kevin The Co-Founder Martin, Tanya “The First Lady” Fields, and Efrain “The Lead Artist” Arana III. Also featured in the cast are Atlantic County Residents, Rapper, Shawn Rock; Kyle “40” Lee, Lakeith “Ace King, Walter “Wise” Charleston, Josh “The Assistant Queen, Shavonna Moe Morris, Virginia “Aunt Gin” Queen, and Victor “Da Villain” Jones.
If director Radheya Jegatheva, was to inspire potential viewers within this short documentary, then its safe to say those vital points will exceed viewerships expectations. This is an excellent short.
The cinematography, the sound, music composition and the main character (Richard Pace) story warrants a four out of five stars review. The filmmakers did a remarkable job in convincing Richard to share his story.
Imagine recanting a disability you have had for 60 years while showing the world how to continue to live otherwise. More so than not, people lives are celebrated during a eulogy or at a retirement ceremony. Watch the film, his colleagues and family would laugh at the premature notion.
Congrats Mr Pacing you have done that, we are smiling. In closing hats off to the director for capturing a remarkable those examples on film.
Not just your average travelling run and shoot documentary!
It took Director Marco Huertas, three years to picture puzzle through film the life and death variations in six countries. (Cambodia, Germany, India, Macao, Nepal, Thailand). Why? We encourage you to ask him.
From our standpoint we were wondering exactly that? Throughout the near 15 minute documentary we waited patiently but what kept our interest was the remarkable cinematography and sound that complimented his objective. Its good!
“At first we thought this was a joke of some kind. Then we realised Director Keith Saltojanes was doing exactly that. Taking the mickey of out the industry of copying and free use footage.. Something we are all guilty of.”
A perfect example of an overly saturated industry!
“Visual artist and director, George Wada, somehow manages to set examples of what an illustrated musical composition should look like in digital storytelling.“
The 1945 film noir “Detour” is the backdrop for Texas blues rocker Steve Hill song “Talkin’ that Mumbo Jumbo” as we take a journey through America’s media culture.
Mr Wada, of Dog Paw Productions, has taken a simple concept of editing with unlimited resources from a collection of films and applied it to a song that wouldn’t normally see the light of day. We do hope Steve Hill appreciates the concept of Wada’s vision that has complimented his music.
One question for Director George Wada… where did this idea come from? The video is witty, entertaining and most definitely support traditional methods of creativity. The componing parts may come across as a form of “let us put something together to keep the stick in the fire of the industry“, but the quality overlaps that theory. It is a musical adventure.
Director Bill Slovick, film Below A Darkwood, displays the mirrored experiences we all faces when someone leaves within an uncertainty of no return. The memories that are left behind are just as painful as saying goodbye, but eventually we all have to. The cinematography in the film shows a return of what the industry use to consider as “Fantastic B Rated/ Independent Film” .
Synopsis: A missing woman. A troubled man. A dark wood full of mystery. What moves among the trees? What secrets lie buried? And what comes creeping in the dead of night?
If one cannot take two minutes of their busy lifestyle to laugh then they probably are wasting their time reading this. This short film consists of everything that should be added to a smartphone short film. We love it. This is what one would call: “Utilizing your skillset when you are stuck in confinement!”
Of creative mind and restless spirit, always in search of the next film challenge, Jaime Fidalgo is a writer-director born in Madrid, Spain, but raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he spent his childhood and discovered his passion for movie making. Trained at the New York Film Academy in filmmaking and specialized in screenwriting at the Vancouver Film School, he has written and directed eight music videos and fourteen short films that have been screened around the world, with a positive route in the most varied film festivals in which more than 400 official selections and 40 awards are added.
There is no such thing called a “new comer director” in film-making. Once certain directors hit a peak of being reputable all of us seem to jump on the bandwagon and the step by step films prior to the big hits are often over looked. Gaslightening seems to be one of those perfect examples. You either have the vision and display that vision at your own pace or wait till you find exactly what you want the world to view through your lens when your ready. In this indie short film, scriptwriter and directorTina Mazat of Qbit Films seems to have waited till the perfect time to do exactly that.
This film is about tolerance and a deliverance to those that think the aforementioned has an unlimited amount of it. The film was shot in Berlin where the director is challenging the viewership as well as giving the world an update to the city. One of those examples is; if you are not familiar with a certain part of the city then you wouldn’t know its Berlin. Our first reaction was: “Thank God, its not another film shot in the overly saturated new Berliners section of Kreuzberg!”
The other has to be selection ofLara Marian and NilsBauer as the key cast, who both do an exceptional job acting in English. As some would say; “the proofs in the pudding” because it was definitely done in the new Berlin where coming across anyone that speaks German is quite hard.
The film is impressive yet bland based on the objectives of the short while being complimented with near perfect cinematography.
In contrast to what the description of the film has been listed as, the ending isn’t much of a surprise. However, one has to wonder if it is was either too harsh or did Matzat leave room for a part two. Can you, the reader, imagine a part two of a short film? We can..
“Nice and thought provocative short flick!” -WorthJourney
