Confetti - a mockumentary which follows three couples, competing for the title of Most Original Wedding of the Year: The Musical Wedding, The Tennis Wedding and the Naturist Wedding. Written by
The film was acted out as an improvisation and was shot entirely in chronological order. The actors were not even given call-sheets in order to increase the film's sense of unknowing and the improvisational style. Director of photography, Dewald Aukema explains that "The film is very versatile, as there is no strict script, it is interesting that anything could happen in a particular take, and it could be used effectively in production, it's really up to the actors how they develop the scene and their characters."

I saw a test screener of this tonight in Birmingham and I have to say it is just superb! I don't know when the release date will be, the film was not in an entirely finished state so I guess we were the focus group who got to see it this evening! To answer people's queries... yes, it is entirely improvised - very much in the style of the excellent Christopher Guest films (Best In Show, Waiting For Guffman, A Mighty Wind - all of which I would highly recommend, especially if you like Confetti!) The basic plot line is: Confetti magazine is running a competition for the most out-there wedding, the prize being a house. Various entrants apply and the film follows the three selected finalists during their preparations for the big day. Shot so as to appear in the style of a fly-on-the-wall documentary, the film never left me feeling like it was contrived and the characterisations were just superbly believable throughout.
The casting couldn't really have been any better; some truly fantastic performances from Martin Freeman, Justin Webb (from BBC 2's "The Smoking Room" and Channel 4's "Peep Show") and Olivia Colman (also from "Peep Show" and also BBC2's "Look Around You") - to name but a few. This really was an ensemble cast and the whole thing gelled perfectly.
I would highly recommend anyone to go and see this - a fantastic and imaginative piece of British cinema, with some truly side-splitting moments!
