World’s End YouTube Review–Kids And Cameras…They Freak Me Out
Kids and cameras, man. They freak me out.
No, seriously. They freak me out like nobody’s business. Because they keep going into short films with whatever they’ve got handy, and frankly, the short films aren’t that bad.
I’ve seen complete garbage done by so-called “professionals” that was vastly worse than most of the kiddie shorts I’ve found so far. Why, it’s almost enough to make me wonder if filmmaking has a future.
In this title, World’s End, we join a lone survivor of the great Zombie Apocalypse out scrounging for all the basics in life–food, shelter, and big-ass guns. But naturally, it won’t be that simple for our hero, as he’s beset upon by a zombie who looks to be about eight or so.
Much like One More Zombie, this example of Kiddie Romero is poorly scripted and poorly shot, but considering the ages and experience levels of the filmmakers, it’s absolutely understandable and should be lauded. Kids today, man…I didn’t even try making MY first indie film with friends until I was like seventeen. We were going for one of those wild camping-in-the-woods slasher flicks but it never got out of the script stage. And yes, I wrote the script, and yes, it sucked, and no, you can’t read it mostly because I can’t actually find it now.
But anyway! World’s End and the rise of the Kiddie Romero set. Color me impressed–not on an objective level, of course, but on a conceptual level. This isn’t that great a movie, but what it represents is a wonder indeed.
Congrats, kiddies–you made it past the tough tests too. The Screenhead Ten Scale’s handing you a six out of ten too–not because your movie was anything great but because you did it with virtually NO tools in your bag at all. Be sure to let me know when the next one comes out.
