MISSING TOMATO SAUCE, THE cover image
The Missing Tomato Sauce is a student made short film by 12-year-old Asian American, Owen Lee who has written, shot and edited this cute docu-drama about his search for tomato sauce for the spaghetti sauce he's making - which he finally finds long after the noodles have become cold.

This family cast and production team is a slow paced five minute film with precise sequencing and interesting scenes. My favorite is the interrogation scenes where Owen shines a light onto each family member, one by one, as he questions them about the tomato sauce. The actors obviously enjoy their participation, which I love. I was a bit disappointed in its predictable ending, but I enjoyed the process. The camera work, audio recording, background music and editing are all well done. Kevin McLeod is the composer for all of the stock music used. For young film makers, KevinMcLeod.com provides royalty free music to use in their films.

I give this film 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12, plus adults. By Nancy K., KIDS FIRST!
