First Fall (2013) Review:
In terms of narrative this is a simple little short film which is delivered without dialogue and is very much about the fairytale of the separation of these two seasons and their clashing characteristics – it is simply told as a story although it does have a certainly touching beauty to it. Most of this comes from the visual design and delivery, which is just incredibly good looking. The world of summer is green and lush, with that warm light that you really only get in lush climates towards the end of a great day; meanwhile the world of winter is cold, dead and clean in its whiteness. - bob the moo
