Thoughts on To the Moon
Thoughts – When it comes to short films you don’t want to give everything away correct? Well with this film we get 11 minutes to tackle mental illness, how to support, how people are negative towards people with them and letting the people believe in their dreams however hard they could be to become true. We saw this team working together on ‘We Make Movies’ and this shows the team can handle a different subject matter on a serious toned film over the light hearted previous. If you want to see a story that will make you think about the small parts of lives, this one will open your eyes to them.
Overall: Brings a smile to your face.
