Continuing my look at Fizz and Ginger Films' work (after seeing their recent feature Two Down at a festival) I managed to find some of their early shorts, much to my delight.
Claude et Claudette is a fun, accessible homage to the French New Wave of the 1960's.
As with all of the films that this team produce, it's slick, well made, and you can visibly see them becoming stronger filmmakers.
Yes, it is silly, and strolls into parody but after reading why Matthew Butler and Tori Hart made it, to learn more of the whys and hows of their craft, I can see the work there. And when you see their more mature work, like Two Down, you can see that this exploration into different genre's of filmmaking has paid off.
There is another review here of the short, and I completely disagree with the writer. This was not made as a parody, but a gentle comedic homage from which the filmmakers wanted to learn. And in this day and age of everyone thinking they're a filmmaker and that every film is a treasure, it is inserting to see young filmmakers trying to better themselves.
Give it a watch if you can track it down!
