Review of: Icons

Psychological ride
This is a good short, the moving camera shots combined with the music reflected pretty well the character’s state of mind. Nice acting. I also liked the pacing, the tension along with the sense of confusion keeps building, however, I think it goes too long and there is a moment of boredom, but the end pays off good. The guy simple couldn’t escape. The voice over characterization feels very flat, it also needs better sound editing.
