Trolls time is here?
Having become familiar with this sketch as an audio program about a year or so ago, I had hoped that the original energy and wit would be improved upon. And, the effort is OK. Not great, but OK. If I hadn't been familiar with the premise, I might have been more enamoured with the treatment, but in this case, I think that the video is a tad laboured, which could have been improved by tightening the direction and editing.

    This short is fetching, and has the familiarity of hanging out with old friends. Why it happens, or why these two people, was a minor niggle for me as I watched the interaction of the characters, and enjoyed the syncopation of an otherwise comfortable enterchange between partners. The idea closed itself for me, as buttons and apples, and the colour red, all merged into a satisfying... read
