Incredible!!!
17 August 2017 | by grantybazSee all my reviews

An absolutely amazing film production with a compelling WW2 story that is deserving of a far wider audience. I was kept on the edge of my seat for the full feature and at the end left wanting more from this newly turned 17 year old film maker who clearly has a unique talent and a great future ahead of him.Some of the outstanding camera work and effects was made even more impressive to me since Elliott only used a fairly standard camera and iPhone to produce this film.I look forward to your next film but only after you've passed your A Levels!Good luck!
