Sleeping Flower (Short Film) - Review



Sleeping Flower is a short film written, directed, and produced by Tom Smith. The film stars Jessica Sargent as Daisy and Edward Stagg as Grandfather John. It was filmed on location in Bournemouth and at Poole Harbour, Dorset, United Kingdom

Daisy awakes one morning to find her Grandfather John missing from his usual kitchen spot. In a panic, Daisy searches and makes phone calls to no avail. Finally a phone call comes in that sends Daisy forty miles away to where her Grandfather has walked. 

Grandfather John has trekked to the harbor to reflect on his life and give floral tributes to his 'sleeping flower' who he misses greatly.  

We are given the impression that Daisy is the only one that keeps a close eye on her grandfather. I am surprised by the fact that the grandfather did not question or act the least bit surprised that young Daisy was suddenly at beside him at the harbor. 


It is a touching examination of the care Daisy feels for her grandfather and melancholy twist to Grandfather John's life.
 The music choice is fitting to the tone of the film.

The LOOKALIKE - In Cinemas November 7



The LOOKALIKE - New Trailer Released


Starring Justin Long, Gillian Jacobs, John Corbett, Luiz Guzman, Jerry O'Connell Directed by Richard Gray

Drug lord William Spinks has a curious obsession with Sadie Hill, and uses family friends Bobby and Frank (John Corbett and Jerry O’Connell) to get to her. But when Sadie’s death jeopardizes a major deal, Bobby and Frank set out to find a replacement – a lookalike – to fool Spinks. This dubious plan propels an ex-basketball champion, a deaf beauty (Scottie Thompson), an addict (Justin Long), and an aspiring actress (Gillian Jacobs) into an unlikely romance and a desperate quest to start over.

Making A Go Of It (Short Film) by Tom Smith - Review


It is easy to see why Tom Smith’s short film Making A Go Of It was an official selection at the 13th Leeds Young Film Festival. The five minute (4.58 minutes to be exact) film is a sweet tribute to the silent film era, where boy meets girl.

The hero (Matt Williams) going about his every day routine sees by far the prettiest girl (Olivia Spencer) he has ever seen. Before our hero can get the fair lady’s attention she is gone. He catches up to her only to witness that she already has a boyfriend. But not all is roses and soon the young hero comes to the fair damsels rescue.

I am glad the filmmaker chose to make the short in Black & White, yet leave the story set in modern times, it adds to the charm of this short little film with no distractions or attempts to over do make-up and costumes.

Check out Making A Go Of It:

8-Track Productions Announces Kickstarter Campaign For Feature Film “Little Magdeline”



8-Track Productions is proud to announce that they are now accepting donations via kickstarter.com for their next feature film “Little Magdeline”.

“Little Magdeline" is a romantic Drama about a man who reconnects with his 6 year old daughter with whom he has never met. Because of this, he reevaluates his life, the way he loves and his relationships. 


“Little Magdeline” will be the third feature film Directed by Zack Scott (The 28th Day: The Wrath of Steph) with a screenplay by Zack Scott, Thomas D. Butler and Kate Nichols from a story by Zack Scott. It stars Kate Nichols and features Jodie Grundin. It will be shot by Laura Beth Love (Asteroid Vs. Earth, Jailbait, Alpha House) and edited by Ludmil Kazakov (Last Supper, Robocroc, Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines). It will be produced by Zack Scott and Kate Nichols.



“Kickstarter is a great site to raise funds with because it is all or nothing,” says Zack Scott. “It’s the most trustworthy fundraising site on the internet because once you meet the goal, you are now accountable to your contributors to finish your project, which we will! Our last film, The 28th Day: The Wrath of Steph, was self funded and we only spent $2,000 on that film but that film shows what we could do. This film, albeit a whole lot less complicated than “The 28th Day”, will have a lot more people that we are collaborating with. I have spent the past three months finding a great bunch of key crew members who love what they do! This is what I want. I’ve been on sets where there are people aren’t just jazzed that they are working on a film set. Ludmil, Laura, Crystal as well as our production manager LaChelle Hunt and our Music Supervisor Derek War Love what they do! This is what makes this film different than others that are looking for funds on Kickstarter.”


The Kickstarter campaign continues until November 14th 2014 and can be found here! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1437935859/little-magdeline-film
