HERE’S THE PLAN (NFFTY Film Festival Seattle Washington USA 2017)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Here’s the Plan—18 to 19 minute short film—has a sweet storyline that runs true to life. The timing on its storyline needs to be readjusted so that the story focuses on the plan rather than earning money to buy a new oven. It needs to re-focus on the original plan and lengthen its ending to increase effectiveness. The closing scenes are sweetly done.

A couple have a dream of running a bakery. When their oven breaks and they must seek employment elsewhere, their relationship begins to drift apart.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The short film needs professional cutting and editing to increase effectiveness. The ‘working for someone else’ scenes need collapse, perhaps using a quick montage, to allow an expeditious return to the original dream of running a bakery. This small adjustment could cut 8 minutes out of the movie and increase its impact. The film has a wonderful message that needs to find its place through keeping it simple and short.
