Why Watch? Because all you need to make a movie is a camera and an imagination.
Admittedly, there’s an amateurish aspect to this short, but that’s also part of its charm. The other part of its charm comes from a simple concept being given a serious, dedicated execution. There’s something Rubber-like about seeing a bouncing blue ball roll down the road all on its own while getting into trouble, but the music makes it something truly epic (that was clearly shot in and around the filmmaker’s neighborhood).
Huge adventure. In your backyard. A great combination.
The camera is wobbly, which can be distracting, but the potential is there. Someone buy Zac Grigg a nice camera rig, will you?
What Will It Cost? Just 8 minutes of your time.
