Reel Life (2013)
13min · Short, Comedy, Drama · 1 January 2013
REEL LIFE is a comedy where boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love ... only for girl to discover that boy's life is edited like a movie and plays out entirely in film. Maddy meets Oliver and enters his seductive world: trimmed of life's banalities, boring bits and bathroom breaks; and finessed with useful jump cuts, time-saving musical montages and exciting star cameos. Admittedly, it does have its drawbacks: what with the dialogue censoring, continuity errors and uncertainty over what genre of film she's in (Is it a thriller, a musical... a horror?). An even if it is the desired romcom, dare she dream of a Hollywood ending? Can Maddy's love ever be truly REAL if Oliver's life is forever only REEL?
