Director: Chris Mich
Starring: Marie Osmond and [the alphabet].
The film works with a simple progression of letters displayed on screen. They come in various guises, and at times, its difficult to find the letter in the shot. Often there is some sort of action that obscures the characters. Sometimes its just a strange angle. One character in particular caught my attention. Its an "M", displayed on a slight angle and slightly out of focus. Slowly the letter comes into focus, and slowly, you are able to better make out what the letter is.
Displaying letters on screen may sound boring, but director Chris Mich shows a lot of creativity. The music is also interesting - heavily concentrated on steel drums, Residual Impact relies on density and timbre, rather than pitch.
Again, a film like this is a challenge, but Character is up to it. Its more absorbing that I would have thought possible, given the seemingly limited subject matter.
