Director Monolo Celi

Film won award from "The Florida Industry Incubator"

The short film was made for the contest that gives team 30 days to shoot and edit a 5-minute short while having a budget of 500 dollars. The film opens with Roberto Lequex , a photographer, sitting having lunch. He sees a family taking pictures and then runs over to help them. He ends up robbing the guy of his really nice DSLR and takes pictures of him as he robs him. I thought that was hilarious the way the actor got so angry and its incredible that Roberto Lequex was actually taking pictures during the filming. I like this film because it is very light hearted and simplistic. Although it has a very linear structure the end is a shot of the gallery with all of the pictures of the shoot! Very cool how the Director and photographer were able to collaborate into making a film and photo shoot into a single piece. I think the filmmakers executed the making of this short effectively and entertainingly.

For a film made in a short period of time, it has very good editing--it seems as if they spent as much time editing as the main actor did running. Though cute, this film was emotionally obvious--we knew by the way the main character looked at the family that he meant no harm but personal amusement at their expense.
