So, for a while now, I've been thinking about writing up some 7-word reviews (that's kind of become my thing - 7 word reviews. Well, one of my things) of the videos I saw at this year's Island Media Arts Festival. Wanted to do it right after the screenings, to keep it fresh. Then I didn't do it. Then I thought "well, the time has passed" and decided not to do it. Then I thought "what the hell, just do it" and then I did it. That's a lot of "thens".
Overall, I enjoyed the two nights of screeenings I saw. Generally speaking, it's obvious that a lot of people have some pretty stout talents when it comes to shooting videos, and making them look really nice. I did find myself wishing, though, that there were more people who were more interested in telling stories than they were in making videos look nice.
Anyway, here are some 7 word reviews. With only 7 words, you might have to read between the lines quite a bit, and likely my meaning at times will be confusing as I attempt to have some specific word imply a whole paragraph of opinion.
