Great to see that Ruben Pracas’ Revive got the recognition it deserves, winning the people’s Choice Award for Tropfest Australia. Despite missing out on a place from the judges, for me Revive was the star of the show.
With any short, the challenge is creating something that encapsulates an audience. It needs to draw them in quickly, take them on an engaging journey and give them the chance to experience a change of emotional state.
Revive does exactly this. It’s a very simple story, told in a beautiful and emotive way.
