"Far as the Eye Can See" features Landscape Cinema rarely found in short films
2 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 20-minute short film, which was awarded Best Short (domestic) by the Wine Country Film Festival in Napa-Sonoma, was shot over 8 days on a 125,000-acre cattle ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico. It stars Danielle Fradette, an unknown actress cast out of New York, and Frances Dee McCrea, a starlet of the 30's and 40's ("Little Women", "Of Human Bondage") who was married to screen legend Joel McCrea. The film marks her last screen performance before she died. Film Threat's Phil Hall said: "…"Far as the Eye Can See" has wonderful 35mm cinematography by Brian McAward (the New Mexican landscape hasn't looked this good in movies in ages)." In addition to "Zombie Prom" and Patrick sayers Project Greenlight finalist "A Family Name," McAward also shot Mr. McDonald's first short, "Special Delivery", which was a featured selection of the Director's View Film Festival and selected as part of Slamdance's Hieronymus screening at the Echo Park Film Center in LA.
