The production values of this movie are very high. The web site claims that's because "they made it the old-fashioned way, they stole everything." Apparently that mostly refers to "stealing" the talent of movie pros that volunteered their time. But who knows if they also stole the Kodak 800 film too!
Kandeyce Jorden seems to be working on a style in the mold of BMW Films directors -- gritty, sexy short action films with fantastic style. If you can find her short "The Layover" on the Skyy Vodka site it's pretty cool too. Her stuff is consistently sophisticated with a flirtation with danger. Add in typically appropriate and exciting music and you can see why she's getting noticed.
Undone is a fun short. It's not terribly artsy. It mostly achieves the look and the sound that this new genre (action short?) is known for. Unfortunately the acting is sub-par. It's often stilted and breaks the spell that is critical for maintaining mood. The final scene is so badly done that the film would be improved tremendously if it were completely deleted. What the hell happened there? Did all the talented people leave for the day?
The trailer for Undone is fantastic, and would draw huge audiences if the film were a full-length release. Kandeyce Jorden is working on a full-length film now. I'm hopeful that she can realize more when she's not rushed. Maybe Kandeyce Jorden will be the next Guy Ritchie.
