Some really strong production qualities here. That's what stands out. Camera work is right on, lighting and composition looks great. There was definitely a little time taken on this one and that is hard to find on TS. I would say that the story itself was predictable. I sort of new what was going on the whole time. But the strong production quality kept me watching. The acting was ok, nothing fantastic or terrible, right about in the middle. I've never been a fan of narration in a film, of course with the exception of documentary film. It just seems to get in the way here, and most of the time, she's saying things that we the audience already knows, or is about to find out. Loose half of the VO, and you'd have a lot stronger piece. The production qualities are so good, let them speak for themselves.

This might have been clever and witty to those invovled in the production, but the story, or point, or plot are not there. It was 6 and a half minutes... read
A review of How Do You Know When?by cptmorgan on 07/09/2007I'll tell you, because this film was REALLY predictable. Playing on the "first kiss" cute little kids theme, this film doesn't really do much to expand my imagination. I also didn't see the point of shooting this in 8mm, unless the creator just wanted things to look cool. Or maybe it was all supposed to trigger our own memory of our first kiss when we were young? I doubt... read
