Phenomenal!
6 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A unique collaboration of 12 Boston area directors and starring a local ensemble cast of relative unknowns or actors with limited professional experience, I had the privilege of watching this phenomenal work at its world premiere.

Co-producers Scott Masterson and Steve Oare hand-picked 12 directors to shoot a maximum 10-minute short during a different month of 2007. Each director had creative license to explain a story any way he/she wanted, with the caveat that a tree is framed in at least one scene.

The films were directed by Scott Masterson, Seanbaker Carter, Andy McCarthy, Garth Donovan, Luke Poling, Noah Lydiard, Megan Summers, Brynmore Williams, Joan Meister, Marc Colucci, Jared Goodman, and Vladmir Minuty.

Individually, the 12 short films were shot in and around Boston and focus on love, friendship, despair, addiction, and violence using elements of comedy, romance, song, and documentary.

I liked each film in a different way, but my favorites include:

"March" - about a serial murderer and the police detective who tracks him down in a very funny way.

"June" - following the inventive exploits of a teenage boy who builds a flying contraption to escape his alcoholic stepmother. How many kids don't want to fly?

"August" - an educational documentary about bees and the hive sounds they make. Very intellectual here, and a bold contrast to many fictional elements of the other months.

"November" - a jarring look at inner-city youth who live a life of drugs, guns, and violence.
