Ayla Spaans brings us an experimental short from the Netherlands that is just delightfully imaginative. I enjoy a short fix of imaginative film making and this is certainly one to grab your attention. The amount of effort that went into directing extras, constructing an atmosphere in a large set location, and just the color explosion that was the costume design. It functions off this concept that is vividly imaginative, though I must admit feels more clever in its organization than in its depth. I think the piece can go beyond its intention and work as a drug metaphor or other topics of losing a euphoric feeling. There are some minor quick fixes like white text while your main actor is wearing white directly behind her. It’s an interesting watch, and a surprisingly effective piece.

    1. Yeah they’re good if you want to review something quick and they’re really easy to highlight certain technical aspects. I really want to bring back my shortcut short film series so maybe there’ll be more in the future.
