Fantastic effort from a young team. Lots of talent here, both in camerawork and editing and also the acting. A nice simple storyline executed well.

Fun! Loved the editing - it was thoughtful and clever. A well put together short with good acting.

Nice one! I enjoyed this thriller. It fit well into the genre with a great little twist. Particularly like the 'window' scene... very well set up and shot.

Really well edited and the audio was clear. Excellent acting by all.
A simple storyline with some clever scenery and props to help tell the story. Plus the original score was an excellent touch. Quite impressed with the quality from this team. Hope they keep taking part.

This was a good laugh. The teenager next to me was cracking up! Edited well, and with a clear storyline it was an enjoyable (albiet a little cringeworthy) comedy. Would loved to have seen the horror element a little more at the forefront, but in saying that I did appreciate the subtlety of how horrific it was for the lead to be in that position.

This cracked me up. I loved the 'pulp fiction-esque' nature of the scene adorned with fairy lights and the storyline. The audio was not perfect, but the acting was pretty good, and the smash cut was clever - totally unexpected. :) Well done.

Dark and distubing and well put together. The storyline had merit and excellent acting by the lead.

This film was challenging to watch - but in a good way. Taking the genre and making it their own to highlight the challenges many people in society face - and how a little understanding and friendship can make a difference.
Clever audio production and editing. Another great little story from Pastafarian.

Yet again team Touching Cloth produce a film in which the storyline holds your attention, draws you in to the lives of the very believeable characters and leaves you with a sense of wanting to know what happened next? It for me wasn't quite a true RomCom in that there was no happy ending for a couple, but there was a happy, upbeat ending, and so who cares right? I think the both the two leads were wonderful, and the mirrored activities were very clever. It was my favourite film of the night. Well done yet again TCP!

This film polarised my husband and I. He loved it, I wasnt a massive fan - mostly because I figured it out before the surprise twist was revealed. I feel like it took too long to get there - I appreciate the story was based around her routine and that needed to be established though. In saying all of that that I also think the camera work was excellent, the acting was very good by everyone and the concept was very much in keeping with the genre. And the fly soundtrack building thoughout was a nice touch. ;)

This film was so over the top cheesy bad with it's use of the prop that I actually really loved it. I laughed so much at the end with the face and arms! I think the acting, camera work and editing were decent too. And there was a storyline in there in amoungst the silliness.
I hope this team enter again next year, as this quirky sense of humour is a gift.

I had high expectations for this film, as this team is always brilliant - however I'm sorry to say that I was a bit lost with the story and the sound was a little off in places. The actors all did an amazing job -and there were some classic Rubber Soul laughs in there but I just didnt quite follow the storyline - and so the whole thing felt a bit muddled. The camera work was very good and the opening scene was gorgeous. I would like to watch it again to see if it grows on me.

I enjoyed the special effects but was completely lost on point of the story; possibly because sci-fi/science/fantasy type films are my least favourite genre. Who was 'she' and why were the karate kids and the men in black chasing her? The sound was quite difficult to listen to also, but the acting was good and the editing was clever. I really want to know how you did those special effects with the wrist watch and the 'portal' light thingys!!

I think this team did a great job with the genre. It's one of my favourite genres to watch. The storyline was clever, and the two actors were great with all their different characters. I particularly enjoyed hearing a bit of Te Reo by Nana, the little ponies, and I liked the additional narrative of making a campaign video. I would have liked for it to have been a bit darker, with more farcical moments of humour. But for a team of two, I am well impressed with the amount of work they had to do to get this film made.

I enjoyed this film - I laughed out loud at some of the scenes. The whole family were great actors/actresses and I particularly liked the mum and dad. The storyline was a little confused though - in that I didnt quite understand the friends/girl/drama thing going on. It needed a bit more background (flashbacks or more dialogue maybe)? The concept of a sitcom with the canned laughter was very clever and I think this team did a really good job with an interesting genre.

I enjoyed this film. It was fun, quirky and the storyline was simple but it worked well. I noticed a few sound issues (which all of us with basic equipment have to deal with), and there were a couple of scenes that could have been shortened but overall I liked it. I thought the dark haired girl was an excellent actress too. :)

The concept of this film was really solid, but I didnt really enjoy it if I'm honest. It lacked something and wasnt terribly memorable. The audio was off too which was a shame, because from what I could hear the two leads had lovely voices.

I thought the bar scenes and the intro scenes with the girls were really well done and it got laughs, and shrieks in all the right places (probably the language and smoking/drinking/drugs - but that didnt bother me - it is after all part of the narrative and to establish the characters). The audio was off in a few places and so was a bit jarring in places to the ear, but overall a pretty solid effort and I hope this team enters again!

I LOVED this concept - I thought the ash was very, very clever and the acting by the lead brilliant. However, I felt the storyline dragged a bit when trying to explain the how/why with Scarlet/Albert/Bruce - it kind of lost me a bit at that point.
The editing was excellent and loved the team intro too. :)

I loved the intro to this film in the gym (I was waiting for him to jump up and start a 'flashdance' or 'rocky' type dance sequence), and there were a few priceless scenes throughout (the dog had me both cringing and laughing)! I would have liked to see some more dancing or more obvious boxing type movements to tie it to the genre better, but overall a quirky, fun film to watch. The acting and editing were great.

Good stuff guys. Some great acting talent in your team and some hilarious moments. I also very much loved your team intro title movement with the van - very cool work by the post-production team/person. :)

Well done! I thought this was beautifully produced and held my attention throughout. The ending was indeed a shock - so you definately nailed the genre!

Another hilarious film by Rubber Soul. Every year these guys produce a slick looking film with a fun story and this one was no different. :) Loved Morgan - he had some fantastic lines!

Clever concept - thought it was a great interpretation of the genre. Lead actress was a smidgen over the top for my liking, but she really understood her character and played her well. Loved the suit, the car 'bump' and the ending. Well done.

A great film Dave and co. Was in my top three. Excellent production, editing, sound and acting throughout. Totally deserved Best Director and Best use of Line. :) I love the fact Touching Cloth do something different each year and are not afraid to try and move the audience with emotions other than humour. You rock.

This film had me in stitches! I thought they did really well and like the other reviewers, I hope they enter again in the coming years - some real talent here for storytelling through film. :)

Quirky but confusing. Loved the concept and loved the zen sock at the end.

Very clever Bruce! Loved the youtube angle, the accent and the flight sequence! Must be a first for 48hours to have such impressive aerial footage!!

Some clever camera work, lighting and editing! I was a little lost at the storyline, but a solidly made film - well done!

Sorry, not a fan. Maybe animation should have its own category for judging? Saw it at the regionals and the sound was terrible. The song itself is very clever, but just didn't get it.

Well done. The most real and technically excellent film I saw. Great camera angles, brilliant use of colour filters and the acting was great too. It actually felt inspirational, and I almost cried.

Well done. Although the start was a bit wonky I think the simple concept and storyline was a great idea, and you did well.

Laughed my a*se off! A simple concept with 3 clear stages.

Clever bunch of kids! Loved the black/white/red scenes and also the hilarious dream scene (dont want to give it away!). Some nice footage, but a little hard to follow the storyline at times. Well done.

Impressed this was made by kids. Decent concept with some clever 'reversed' camerawork and nice costuming. Actually got a fright when the first 'woodnymph(?)' appeared. Some shaky footage and sound issues though.
