He now feels it's his duty to help the transition of lost spirits. His methods are very simple and it is perhaps this informal approach that lead many to underestimate and doubt him. Charlie takes any criticism in his stride, if asked to help he will, otherwise he is content to be left alone.

A tremendous short
4 January 2002 | by dpeabodySee all my reviews

I came across this film after buying the book, "How to make great short feature films", and watching it on the accompanying DVD. I must admit that I was a little sceptical at first as the title to the book is rather subjective - but I was BLOWN AWAY! From what I understand this is their first foray into filmmaking, gulp!

A film like this should have cost five times its budget so it made me a little curious about the production company behind the film. A visit to their website confirmed what I suspected - an up and coming company that knows what it wants to do and appears to be going about the business of getting there effeciently and confidently. They already have a selection of feature films on their slate and if their short is anything to go by...

What I'd like to know is, will there be a follow up to their short film book called, "How to make your first great feature"?
