The quintessential Short Film
16 November 1999 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

If you want to make a Short Film, start by having a look at this one. A Short is hard to make and this one is a fantastic demonstration of a great idea explored by excellent film making. Definitely the best short I have ever seen.
