Innovative short film with lots of style...
29 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw "Not Your Time" at the Boston International Film Festival where it won "BEST PICTURE (short film) and was quite surprised to find so polished a presentation in this category. These days, it seems they're all being shot on cellphone. This one, obviously cost quite a few dollars to produce. Jason Alexander and a cast of mostly Broadway favorites is always entertaining and the quirky editing and fine musical score often brought, "All that Jazz", to mind. I don't know who the filmmaker, Jay Kamen, is but he certainly knows his way around this project. I was also curious about the many cameos featuring a a host of film industry insiders. I'd have to image that Mr. Kamen knows these studio heads, Hollywood producers, and agents. This probably contributed to his being able to achieve such a slick visual look here. I found it quite different and delightful.
