Beer & Seed (Indie film)

beer_seed_logo_01__Copy__CopyAn independent film by Bill Cox.

beer_and_seed_poster_01page001__CopyMaking a feature-length long film is not easy. The amount of organisation, preparation and dedication put into this independent film, Beer & Seed, does not go unnoticed.

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.

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.

Worth a watch! Check them out at their website here or rent/purchase the film on Amazon.
