A Lesson In 'How Not Too'....
21 March 2017 | by lewilewis1997See all my reviews

Gets 2 stars for good camera work & locations.0 stars for anything else. Here's how the film got made;

"Money"?"Yeh, some". "Script"?, "Well, almost, still working on the dialogue", "We also had to steal some ideas, heard of 'I Am Number 4' Boss"?

"Locations booked"? "Yeh, did a sweet deal with the tourist board, got some belters, bru"!

"CGI"? "Got some degree students from Jo'burg Uni', they're using it for their degree show, so working for free"!

"Actors"? "There's a problem, boss. We've spent most of the money, and we still need a catering truck...." "So"?! "We're using the local high school Am-dram club, seem like pretty nice kids". "But can they act"?! "Wellllll.......not as such, boss, but they're enthusiastic, and free".

If Edward J Wood Jr had made films in South Africa, this is how they'd be. The upside is that E.J.Wood Jr created a whole new sub level of B movies that have earned a dedicated (if small) following. Maybe this will be seen as the same in 40 or 50 years time? A possible campus cult classic, but don't hold your breath. May even be the cause of a new sub level, like 'Z Movie' perhaps?
