IN THE PRESS /

Horrible Imaginings Film Festivals Emilie Black said.. "The film looks stunning with cinematography by Claire Bruce.  The way things are shot give the film an old Hammeresque look with a slight modern twist.  It’s perfectly black and white, giving the film an ethereal feel while it also gives it a classical look, both working great with the story and how it’s told.  The images are careful, planned, and perfectly toned." ("Bride of Frankie")
 
Boston Underground Short Film Festivals Abigail Braman says.. "BRIDE OF FRANKIE is well lit and crafted, giving off the essence of a film being shot during the 1930s. I feel this look was achieved quite well through how it was shot, the set design, and the soft and hazy glow of the character close-ups. It really felt like a film straight out of its era..."
