Dream & Desires – Family Ties


This is my favorite film that Joanne Quinn and her team have made. I like how she has based the movie from the cameras point of view. It’s all very well detailed, I like that she’s shown some of the most intricate of movements from the facial expressions, to the smoke coming out of a cigarette. It has that nice sense of realism to it. I also found it very comical, which made me very keen to want to watch it all. This took many years to make, but it times like this that its nice to see the overall outcome of a piece, that has worked out so well.
