This was a charming ghost romcom story about a guy immobilised between life and death inside his old house, Vic moves in and he becomes obsessed with her. For a while I thought this was an obsessive relationship movie then realised we'd already seen that. The acting was good, technically good and story was charming but felt being stuck in a house is stretching the immobilised idea a bit far but overall a charming little movie.
The premise for this film was really good! A ghost, trapped in between life and death and forced to "live" in the house that Vic Meyer moves into. The ghost becomes infatuated with her and then.... well.... nothing until the very end. I feel that this could have really been an excellent little film but it just deflated and didn't deliver. Good acting, great idea, no pacing. Can't wait to see what Bootypoppers comes up with after a little more film making experience.
Good idea with good acting and technically very sound. I agree with all the other reviews, however you needed to change the soundtrack! It became very irritating, as only one track of music was played the entire time. The ending could have been developed further, but overall a very good effort.
Great film, I loved the idea of immobilization being that you become trapped inside a home and that the characters lines are said over the film.
the only thing being the looped music which doesn't really effect the movie :)
Cant wait to see next years entry
This is an excellent film, especially for a school team in their first year of entry. The storyline was solid with an unexpected twist at the end. I enjoyed the characters and the camerawork + editing just made the film that much better.
Can't wait to see next years entry when Bootypoppers have more experience :)
This was quite a solid film, with good acting and an unexpected ending.
The pacing was slow and the permanent Voiceover meant the story was clear, and made the viewer empathise with the main character.
I had expected her to see him though, towards the end.
But, second best thing ...
Reminded me of the plot of the grand winner a couple years ago, by the Downlow Concept. A very similar plot in fact. The filming was good and the acting was VERY good, but the music looped and looped the same 30 second bit until I was driven insane!
This film was inspirational! What a beautiful example of professional cinematography. This was a short film crafted with love and intimate attention to detail. I, honestly, cannot say I have seen such a thought provoking and intricate film, nay, a masterpiece! It is astonishing to even consider that this film was written, produced and filmed by mere high school students. This is a work of true genius and has exceedingly surpassed any expectations and hopes that I had prior to viewing this film. Not only has it exceeded my hopes but it has also given me hope.
In conclusion, I feel that a basic 10 star rating will NEVER be a genuine measure of the greatness and emotional power of this piece of art.
I'm just going to give 1 star to counteract the fanboyism from someones mum. real rating is a 5.
The music was over used, it fit the cuteness of the story but was grating by the end. Well shot, but most of the film should have been a much shorter montage, shorter is better when there is nothing actually happening with the story. Nice ending. I wrote "drugs" down in my notes but I don't know what I am referencing here.
Cute story, technically sound and excellent acting - especially the ghost. Great work.
Loved this film, the story was awesome and funny, it was beautifully filmed, music was perfect and for first time actors you guys did great :D however, I feel that during the middle it could have used a bit more voice over because it felt like it was a bit of an awkward silence.
