That Gift That Changes Us- Joey Heyworth
My most memorable Christmas Gift was a unicycle. I annoyed my parents relentlessly because I liked to juggle anything that was close by, and as I describe it, an unrelated symptom of juggling is things happen to break spontaneously while nearby. Correlation does not equal causation Mum & Dad. Still, it was a testament to their love that they continued supporting my strange circus habits.
The wholesomeness and playfulness of A Gift For All Ages story drew me to this film. Most of the work I'm lucky enough to get is steeped in bitter conflict, nasty confrontations, and unlikeable characters. Nothing wrong with that, but it's a big breath of fresh air to work on a story that's overflowing with love. There isn't a character lacking charm and wit in this whole film.
Once the film is released, I hope people will rediscover the joy of the golden age of cinema - long dolly shots, in-depth scene work, and fewer editing distractions. Hopefully it'll inspire people to go back and see some of those golden oldies.
