WINTER BLOOM cover image
I enjoyed the short film Winter Bloom with its creative storyline and believable acting. While playing inside with his toys, Tyler hears that scientists found a woolly mammoth that was very well preserved and could be cloned. So, he buries a Barbie and a stuffed dog in his backyard. After his sister tells him that it's impossible, he proves her wrong.

I like how creative and unique this film is. I haven't seen anything like this storyline before and found myself enjoying it.

The camera work is excellent. There isn't anything outstanding, but it is definitely suitable for exhibition. I like how vibrant the sets are, especially the garden. The characters are Tyler (Ethan Stewart), Sophie (Mariah Matney) and Neighbor (Christa Thielen). They are all believable, especially Ethan Stewart because you can feel his emotion, even though he doesn't have that much dialogue. My favorite part is the ending because I felt happy that it all worked and the boy finally got to hang out with a dog and prove his sister wrong.

The message is to go outside, don't let others get you down and always believe in a little magic.

I give Winter Bloom 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 18, plus adults. It is a very family friendly film and will make people happy. Reviewed by Katherine S., KIDS FIRST!

Tyler needs a little magic to get the dog he so longs for. When his plan backfires, he'll discover that real magic has a very unique way of making dreams come true.
