Accomplishing all these things on a budget only makes it more difficult; the cast and crew deserve immense credit.
Beer & Seed is well shot, well lit and well framed. However, the acting is sometimes wooden which lets down the feel of the film somewhat.
Many of the characters are college students. who are portrayed as one broad stereotype; undedicated drug-taking drinkers. Although the opportunity for character development was skimmed over, it was comedic nevertheless.
The dark themes, the basic sets and the static shots created a stage-play look which worked well.
Although I do think a ‘mockumentary’ style would have done wonders – using the rough look of the filming to its absolute advantage.
Beer & Seed reflects a team of creative and dedicated filmmakers.
Quirky and entertaining, although certainly a ‘seedy’ storyline.
