Short Film Saturday: Ghild

As soon as I saw the opening image of Ghild I thought to myself “Wow, that looks great, I really hope there’s a live action component to this film.” Seeing as how it easily coud’ve been stop-motion or some other animated form based on the opening image, I thought that was nothing more than a pipe-dream, well sure enough it live action.

It’s some of the most creative production design I’ve seen since The Hole.

It’s also a hilarious concept, overall not just in narrative but also in conception and execution.

You may also recognize Jimmy Bennett as the father and Harland Williams in a cameo.

It’s the most I’ve laughed out loud in a while.

    I agree – incredible production design . Yet I must admit that although the first scenes impressed me if it was not for your words I was unlikely to finish the film …but I pushed on and it became better. ( but still reminded me of an episode of Taboo on National Geographic ) . A very unusual role for Jimmy Bennett too…

      Thank you kindly. It’s been the one theme I’ve been able to stick to and quite a few people seem to respond to it. I usually get one up every week, and if I don’t I double up the following week. So be sure to keep checking back!
