Captured Melody is a classic coming of age story and, given its budget, a technological marvel. The story of a young girl experiencing her first heartbreak and the strength she gains from the lesson in love would be enjoyable on its own, but it is wrapped around, and weaved into, the plight of a fairy princess in this charming children's drama. Beth learns there is more to herself than she ever dreamed, and in discovering that heroine inside, she saves the princess, her pride, and the day. If you have a little girl in your life--or are a little girl at heart--I recommend this story!
The use of 3D in a student film makes for a bold experiment--I don't think I have ever seen one done on the student level--but the experiment is one that the filmmakers have undertaken with remarkable ingenuity and skill. It is not a perfect film, but it is an interesting one, and capturing the imagination is the true goal of every storyteller.
The short tale is a welcome addition to its overall genre.
