THE WRONG ROCK (Creative Talent Network (CTN) Burbank California USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

The Wrong Rock—heartfelt short film—uses mushrooms to tell its story. The mushrooms seem difficult to wrap the mind around…like a miscasting of a character. It seems flowers would have represented the story at a higher level so that relatability would have been enhanced. The animation itself is abstract and obscure in its message. The title itself creates does not lead correctly into the story...which is the wrong rock and why is it wrong? Despite this, the short film deserves its watch. Be aware it will raise more questions than prove itself.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Michael Cawood for this HEROmation Award Winning CGI Short Film. Thank you to Producer Julie Pither for making the film possible.


Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The short film shows creativity. But without the music at the end, it would be difficult to interpret. The film should have been able to stand alone and its message understood. That is not the case here. It needs the addition of something else to explain itself.
