How do you get a BAFTA short film nomination
8 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If I am honest I would have to admit that after the first couple of minutes I was ready to dislike this film. I was prepared to write it off as being a 'worthy' film, one that has almost been designed from the ground up in order to tick a set of boxes to get into festivals. Perhaps a film that was trying too hard.

As the film progressed I found this to be untrue.

Admittedly the film does not use a traditional structure for its plot. It focuses much more on mood and doesn't concern itself with explaining the reason for the journey or character motives.

But I can see why this has been nominated. It tries to do something different - and manages it successfully. Now there is a lot of luck needed if you try to pull off this approach. If you experiment with form and mood then you can't expect to be on the money every time. If you are a film maker who wants to be successful every time then you need to play it safe and start to follow formulas. These film makers have not done that. They took a chance - and it worked.

It was shot on the RED camera in some amazing locations that looked hard to find. Not an easy production, I would imagine, and certainly not cheap.

This nomination is deserved for having guts and sticking to a vision that must have looking unpopular on paper. You don't get a film like this if the director has another agenda of trying to themselves some TV work! You get a film like this if you love film.
