Shallow Water - Awesome old school filmmaking in a modern world
13 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

I am an old school monster guy and love the classics. Shallow Water took me back to a era long lost in this current new world of Green screen and CG effects. Sandy Collora is also an old school FX guy with that same vision of an era long lost. This 20 minute short takes place on real locations with practical effects and a good old fashion man in a creature suit. (Brilliantly played by Kurt Carley and Jason Liles)

While this was about a monster, the star of the show was Lisa Roumain who without any dialogue carries off and amazing performance. Working in harsh conditions, she pulls off every emotion possible in the 20 minute short. Shallow Water was originally slated to be a feature film but was shortened as a Kickstarter project. I would have loved to see what Sandy could have done with a decent budget and a crew for a Shallow Water feature length film.

As for the plot, I am not one to give spoilers so on that note, there is high energy and the sounds blew me away. There is just enough of a creature and actor ratio to fill the 20 minutes.

I am looking forward to the next project from Sandy Collora.
