22 Feb “The Little Chapel” by Richard Schertzer
Making a review on the same author for the third time is an exciting task, because you can actually track down the progress that has been made from the previous work. In this second re-staging of an horror story inside a little chapel Richard Schertzer improved some aspects of his filmmaking.
Directing is simpler and more effective than in the previous short, ans technically there are some improvements, especially in sound and in editing. This time the story works on simpler narrative decisions, that are easier to stage on a low budget and for this reason they work better.
Also, the poster is more effective now and all the establishing shot make a better horror atmosphere than in the previous attempts.
We have the feeling that, at this pace, in a short span Richard will be able to improve his filmmaking and shot his stories in the form he imagines they should be. We wish him to be able to improve one step at a time to reach his full maturity in some years.
