This wonderful short musical has the audience tapping its toes throughout
the movie. The catchy, upbeat songs are paired with dynamic choreography
that mesmerizes you from the very first beat. Great pacing and energy from
beginning to end.
Most impressive, though, is the beautiful cinematography that captures all
of the excitement of the musical without neglecting the nuances of the
characters and story. The camerawork was obviously well-planned and made
most of the vivid colors and performances. I was surprised to learn that
"When the Kids are Away" was shot entirely on HD, and it definitely serves
as a testament to the possibilities of that medium.
This short film is a treat for anyone who loves musicals!
