Taxidermy is a short film by plastic age productions I recently screened. The film starts Out with the two main characters andy played by Matthew rolling and Josie played by Tina Renee grace, having an argument. Andy leaves the overwhelmed and lost Josie. Andy drives off and calls the girl he is seeing. Only to find out she has someone at her house, and no real interest in Andy. Andy with his tail tucked between his legs, goes back to Josie. Andy begs for forgiveness and all seems well in the world. Time passes and Andy goes home one day after work to see a fine dinner,loyal and happy girlfriend. Followed by dessert. Josie says she has one big final surprise for Andy. Josie takes Andy into the bathroom and Andy goes to the shower. Behind the curtains is Beth played by Jolene Aldus lying dead in the bathtub. Josie tells Andy that he can have Beth who is stuffed now and have her without fear of Andy leaving. Taxidermy has a nice twist at the end. It is a well done short, that's straight to the point. Taxidermy was shot on a hmc-150, directed and cinematography by Travis Legge. I give it 8 out of 10 stars.

I recently viewed confliction brought to you by Flopitworks. The film starts out with a cool animated logo that gives a film/street art vibe. Right after it hits hard with raw run and gun style shooting. You see the victim on a rooftop tied down and in panic mode, played by Aimee Louisanne. Soon after it's the confrontation with the suspect played by JJ Condon who is handcuffed and being interrogated by the lead detective played by Jordane Christie. The acting was spot on as the two went back in forth in a cat and mouse game trying to figure out each others moves. Throughout the ordeal the two have past issues brought up telling why they are how they are now. Finally the detective figures out where the girl is. Taken to the rooftop the detective finds the girl just in time. After the detective starts to have the killer taken in only to find out- is there more victims? To find out check out Confliction when it's released. With some beautiful locations and great shots, this film is well worth watching! Overall the the team at Flopitworks did a wonderful job. To check these guy's out go to their website www.flopitworks.com and on twitter @flopitworks @shawn-lights
Overall i give it 8 out of ten stars!
