Hardcore indie film-making with the feel of a studio feature
11 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jim Rhodimer and the Brash Studios/Aleron Entertainment crew have set a new standard in independent film-making (often guerrilla) with GAMEFACE. They've also set a new benchmark for what you can do with MiniDV and how great a film can look -- even on the big screen -- without spending tens of thousands in post production.

Set within the life of an embittered divorcé and the stunningly impactful rock music that defines his life as a musician, GAMEFACE takes us on an unapologetic journey of discovery. What does it take to get beyond the pain of heartbreak? How does one recover their connection with the goodness and excitement of life? What and who do we hold on to when all that we've known is gone? Often mixing music video style editing with edgier random and deliberate movement, GAMEFACE offers candy to the eyes and food for the heart. Each performance is deeply connected, not only to the story but to the theme of the film as well. All this can be attributed to brilliant casting, directing and editing -- an indie film trifecta! Too often in indie film-making stories tend to drag out, with the filmmakers getting caught up in redundancy for cinematic purpose. But with GAMEFACE the journey is the thing that links every scene, every sentence of dialog transcends typical ranting diatribe and speaks to the core of character. You'll be hard-pressed to find better dialog in an indie film.

As an indie filmmaker myself I look for inspiration amongst my peers and the folks who are happily on the same journey as I...GAMEFACE inspires me.
