Here are some of the Comments Left by Peers/Judges
When this one started, I thought, oh please god no... but THEY PULLED IT OFF... very impressive. It was a FOUR way split screen. Very ambitious and all kinds of room for error but it worked very well.
The acting was great and the shooting and shot choices worked really well. Well done to this team for trying something so ambitious and for pulling it off. Finals for sure, I would think.
This is a film told in split-screen, with four simultaneous one-take shots, filmed over one performance, in and around a large house. Each shot follows a different character; sometimes they meet up; and each one has interesting stuff to it. The planning and orchestration here is very impressive - to have four cameras running simultaneously and not appear in any shots is incredible.
Good acting, though, and a finalist contender for sure, if only for its amazingly ambitious and mostly pulled-off style.
