The Sound Is The Star
25 February 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A soldier patrols a snow clad forest . A plane's engine is heard spluttering and a plane crashes . The soldier comes across the pilot and takes him prisoner but the pilot doesn't want to end up in POW camp

There's a fair bit wrong with this short . There's no dialogue and it tries to be ambiguous by taking place In an unnamed setting and time frame because the uniforms and aircraft with turbo prop engines suggest it's the Second World War , but that said it's near impossible to visualise on screen a generic war that is timeless and could be taking anywhere or at anytime

But this is not what 8 concerns itself with . Instead director Acim Vasic and the production team entirely concentrate on the audio , an often overlooked part of film making . There is no dialogue and everything is told by action and sound . It is impressive and even if you can work out what the pay off is going to be as I did the technicalities of sound mix and sound editing kept me engaged within the film
