Looked in my email box and saw that our king of the short film,Timothy J. Cox,had left a massive early Christmas present in the form of 12 short films.
So we decided to kick off the fun with “Greg’s Guardian’s Angel” with has a man dealing with a earnest but rather stupid guardian angel.
What really threw us in this quick 10:20 second film was looking for our main man Timothy,he plays Mr. Schmaven,a big shot at Spatgo who offer Greg a huge job performance. I actually had to hit the replay button because I didn’t recognize Timothy!
The film itself is perfect at 10 minutes because Elmer J. Santo’s guardian angel schtick wears REALLY fast. Greg Vorob does a nice job as Greg,he has a nice comedic touch and I like to see more of his work.
The film was directed by Dan Kowalski and written by Dave Conrad. The story is fine and I like short films for new directors because they learn as much as any new actors do.
In this case,I think a slightly firmer hand on Santo’s angel would have produced more laughs but instead becomes quickly annoying and was a turn off.
The cheetah left after 2 minutes in….
We liked the premise,just not Santo’s performance.
