Fluff

  1. 1. 44 EMPIRE APRIL 2013 www.empiremagazine.com Type to enter text Williams admits working with puppets is easier than actors, ‘Much less ego and you can work them longer hours!’ IN CINEMAS .................................................................................................................................... ........................................................................... FLUFF Not Just a bit of Fluff.... .................................................................................................. RELEASED May 1st CERTIFICATE PG DIRECTOR Rufus Williams CAST Katie Wyman, Rufus Williams Terrisha Downton-Snood Craig Winchcomb Robbie Judkins RUNNING TIME 5 mins. PLOT When a boy, (Rufus Williams) cheats on his ‘girlfriend’(Terrisha Downtown Snood) he seeks wisdom from the great Oracles (Craig and Robbie) with a surprising outcome. ......................................... ......................................... a truly creative and meaningful insight into the trials of young love. Terrisha Downton-Snood stands out as one of the up and coming puppets on the scene at the moment. You may just have caught her recent cameo on ’30 Rock’, playing the part of Jack Donaghy’s life coach which was utterly hilarious. However, as gifted as she is at comedy her performance in ‘Fluff’ is enchanting and does not rely on her comedic sensibility instead we see an truly touching interpretation of Williams’ script, which anchors the film and gives it real heart without ever being sentimental. Overall Puppets seem to be breaking through and we are beginning to see just what they can do. Such films as ‘Muppets Christmas Carol’ and Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys have completely dispelled the myth that puppets can’t carry a film in Hollywood. Williams has also turned a corner; his anchoring performance (which he has also produced) has ensured the films narrative never flags. IF YOU ARE EXPECTING to see ‘Crazy Love’, Part 2, then ‘Fluff’ is going to be a big disappointment. Williams has succeeded in throwing off the Rom-Com slush and delivered Good performances too from Craig Winchcomb (playing Oracle 1, The Chosen, and Robbie Judkins, The Oracles Apprentice, are both memorable as well as uplifting. Williams’ is well within his comfort zone, being no stranger to playing the almost the comical looser. Such familiar elements aside Williams’ is authentic. When I stopped by his offices last week I was lucky enough to meet with him and surprised when he told me that the film was inspired by a true life episode, ‘I believe that being so intimately connected to the story gave me a better grasp of my character.’ I had to ask, is there any truth to the gossip that Williams and Downtown are now an Item? Unfortunately the only response I got was a flash of those perfect teeth. VERDICT Katie Wyman’s role is shamefully underwritten (especially for an actress capable of carrying a franchise), but Fluff is a indie cut above your average boy meets girl with a lovely experimental-chaos vibe.

  5. 5. just piece fluffnot A Many rom com posters seem to use bold and umbolded century gothic (or similar) and some use different colours for one or two words- The effect of this creates a humorous feel and tells audience the subject matter they are dealing with. for example: My Best Friend’s Girl bolds ‘best’ and ‘girl’ to highlight the focus. The Ugly Truth seems to get it’s humour from the word ‘ugly’ which is the only bolded word, almost as if it was in brackets acting as an ‘aside’ of

  7. 7. The one word title is not a common convention for rom com titles. In my research one word titles seemed to be used for more serious subject matter. However here are some. Colour conveys the content style with baby pink being used for the poster, ‘killers’ is used as the antithesis of the actual word. This juxtaposition supports the humour of the photograph and signals a light hearted film.
