A beginners adventure into film from an audience member to behind the camera

Short film of the week: Perestroika

Ok, this is technically not a short film, but a web series that I recently came across, but its so good I had to feature it here.

These guys shoot in Spain so it is in spanish with english subtitles. Its about 3 young characters and the social interactions they have with members of the opposite sex etc… I almost liken it to a young version of Seinfeld. The writing is particularly witty, and the dialogue and performances sharp and believable. Whats perhaps even more amazing to me is their use of the GH1 DSLR to film these. They have 4 episodes out so far with more to come, each running about 7-8 minutes.

I am amazed at how well you know these characters after just a few short characters, and how you have an insight into each of the main 3 so quickly. Truly a very funny show, i would watch it on TV for sure if it was on. Check it out.
