FAST FACTS.

New production company Eponine Films have done the impossible - they’ve made their very first feature film, and not only shot the entire thing using DSLR Nikon cameras, but it’s gone from green light to cinema is less than six months. An impressive feat, surely, but does that lend itself to great filmmaking?

When aspiring photographer Dean (Eamon Farren) meets experienced photographer Audrey (Claire van der Boom), their love is instant and relationships grows fast and strong. But while on a personal journey along the New South Wales harvest trail, things become fractured and their relationship is tested as unexpected discoveries about each other are made.

SWITCH: 'LOVE IS NOW' TRAILER

As a story, it’s been done, and done better. Writer/director Jim Lounsbury’s previous experience is in short films and documentaries, and it would appear that a feature film was a little out of his depths as a writer. Each line of dialogue reads like what someone thinks someone should say and not what they actually would. It’s amateur at best, and lacks the development it needed and deserved. This film's accomplishments should lie in its embracing of new technologies and swift production, but not at the expense of a good story and script.

In the right hands, this project could have been amazing and set a benchmark to be rivalled, but instead it’s an applause to the producers and director for an achievement in film production never to have been done before, and little else.

The irony here is that, being that the film is shot on DSLR cameras, its final product is exactly what it should be given the elements - beautiful to look at yet two dimensional, just like a photograph.
