Sonar Film Review

Film Review By #MatthewSawyer

4/5

Sonar written by Eleonora Mignoli and directed by James Hughes tells the story of a woman called Sarah, played by Amy Marie Campbell. While swimming late at night in an empty swimming pool, she hears a sonar noise and dives under the water to investigate. 

 

The premise of a swimmer detecting an unusual sound late at night while at a swimming pool and subsequently discovering a submarine is a fascinating one. The question of whether it’s all in her head or all in the lone submarine operator, played by Jack Brett Anderson. Adds an element of mystery to the story, leaving us wondering what the truth really is.

This story is told expertly by James Hughes. This may not have the most in-depth story but this is a true representation of bringing various departments together to create something that looks amazing. We have to give a major shoutout to David Cawley and Jan Vaceanu-Staicov who are two incredibly talented cinematographers who have created some truly stunning visuals in their work. Their ability to capture the essence of a scene through their use of camera angles, lighting, and composition is truly remarkable.

 

Another person who deserves recognition is makeup artist Addy Frame whose work here offers the ability to create realistic special effects makeup. From scars and wounds to aging and prosthetics, she has the skills and expertise to create incredibly realistic effects that enhance the overall storytelling experience.

 

Overall, Sonar is a visually stunning and emotionally resonant short film that showcases the talents of its cast and crew. From the expert direction of James Hughes to the stunning cinematography of David Cawley and Jan Vaceanu-Staicov to the incredible makeup work of Addy Frame, every aspect of this film is top-notch. And at its heart is a captivating performance by Amy Marie Campbell that anchors the story and makes it truly unforgettable. Highly recommended for anyone who loves great storytelling and stunning visuals.
