‘We Got It Easy’ review

This short New Creatives film created by Jess Bartlett and Elise Martin seemed to really capture the realism of British school life.

‘Dearly Departed’ review

If Elise Martin has a full stage musical in mind then I would very much like to see it. With the right casting, design and promotion this could be a massive hit.

‘Dearly Departed’ review

Dearly Departed is not your average musical. For one, it has a particularly talented female-fronted crew, and two, it has ghosts. Imagine a mixture of Waitress and The Sixth Sense, and you’ve got Elise Martin and Jess Bartlett’s entertaining new short.

‘Dearly Departed’ review

The zombie horror-comedy musical Anna and the Apocalypse was one of my favourite films of 2018, so when I heard about the short film Dearly Departed, a 13-minute haunted house musical that blends comedy and romance, I knew that was right up my alley.

‘Wither’ review

In just three minutes it establishes it’s folk horror aesthetic, the rules of this particular monster and delivers an effective stalking sequence. There’s a bleak fairy tale quality to this effective little chiller.
