Definitely a filmmaker to watch out for in the future!
2 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

Though not generally a fan of short films I was knocked out to see a short that worked as a story with true character development. Obviously shot with limited resources I cannot wait to see what Smith will do when he gets a budget to make a feature. Definitely a film maker to watch out for in the future
