2019s Soul to Keep
Positive: the score was actually really well done. It’s a lower budget film, but they did put some energy and effort into the score. Sound design, not so much, but score. That’s actually an area of opportunity though for me as well. The female protagonist is deaf and other than one scene, I think they could have used her disability for some good sound design gimmicks.
They really did try to make the filming look good and desaturated some of the shots, which I appreciated. Just like the video look in the 80s, a lot of low budget films look too shiny and clean due to cameras these days, so putting some effort into the look and feel goes a long way.
And those are really my only notes. The acting isn’t great, sound design isn’t great, so it’s really nothing to write home about. I really do think that with some more money that this team could put together something nice. So, keep it up. But this just didn’t work for me overall. I checked out pretty heavily towards the end.
