YOUR REVIEWS

James
It moved me, and that doesn't happen much!

hypernick
I think different music would have added to the feel of the film - the current soundtrack makes it feel a little disjointed. Otherwise - excellent!

Gopher
I don't know what your all on about, it was rubbish

sarn
Enjoyed the simplcity very poignant great message to all new parents

Hugh
This is brilliant - less is more, but the music really doesn't work.

partysuper
really nice, good ideas presented in a simple way which made it great

snodawg
I'm afraid it was too arty and pretencious for me. There was no explicit point, except merely to confuse the viewer into making their own minds up.

stevie
okay a bit of a bore though

chinachick
Fantastic!Very good music composing!

Neslihan
Very good and great message! Congrats!

jon
Bravo

Xavier Alarcon-Mac Lain
It didn't make any sense.

daddy's girl
possibly the best movie on the site.

Mattyhew
Very nice. Simple and effective. A hell of a lot better than that one I just watched about the Hogwarts Express.

jhonnie
but don't give hard time. good film, good intentions. good message. thanks

Weronika
Made me speechless .... and deeply moved.

Yvonne
Blissful drift into a tale we all know well. Well done. Heavy. Perfect. Not a word wasted. Well timed. Gave me time to feel as it made its point

Wal
A story with a message that works! A simple story told using simple materials is a credit to Gareth's brilliant creative and parenting ability.

Ken
You could build a career on that one, fella. Nice work.

tamara
that was beautiful...

Rb
Too simplistic. you have a whole minute but didnt use it.

Woodpark
It's true! The best things in life are simple (but not always free!) Great idea, great movie!

Karl
i loved it!

Daniel
Let's just say it touched me.

Nora Bone
love it it reminds me of when i was a young tap dancer in the lost city of atlantis.

Newbi
Very, very clever. The soundtrack implies a nasty punchline and actually instils a sense of tension, followed by relief at the happy ending. For the film maker to achieve this with a 1 minute animation is extremely clever.

Xardox
Poignant

ENG Dept
Great! This proves that story is everything. Compact, self contained and complete.

Gustava Filgate
Excellent. I have looked at a dozen or so films on this site and they are all rubbish, this is the only one with an idea at all. Good one!

Ellie
Simple, sweet and very true!

housey
Great, a good simple idea does not always need hefty production. I hope youu have more tales to tell

jessica norman
I liked it ...but i am a child so thats why i think it shows how parents should give their full attention to their kids!!!

Rob
On the face of it, this looks rubbish. but i actually found it really interesting and at the end found myself thinking how well it worked. nice work :)

flash
if this was a tickling vid, then something went wrong with ur watever. try 2 film a tickling movie with tickling in it next time around. k?

moreSoup
Liked it. Good idea, interesting presentation. I tick the "yes" box.

Daniel
Liked the visuals but the music was sinister. I felt that the music was going to lead to a bad point at the end.

Ardo
Not usualy my thing but nice and sweet ;), err Gita all you seem to do is say how bad everything is and your caps lock buttom seems to be broke.. If your going to critisize its fine just maybe grow up a bit and be contstructive? if your capable of that..

Josh
Well is there anything that i can say apart from class? Hope to see more!

Conor B
Reminded me of Amelie- funny, cute and heart- warming in such a simple way!

sushma
how inspiring was that??!!!...i love movies and very much wanna make them,i have been struggling to buy a camera...but you just told me something "wher e theres a will, there is a way!!"

Marshall Staxx says...
Brilliant and inspired. Amazing score that complimented the animation perfectly. Best OneMinuteMovie so far. Let me buy you a pack of Rolos.

Philm
hmmmm.... just hmmm....

Roarrr
Touching. Thanks for preventing a schmaltz overload with the electro- muzak

spacemonkey
Unlike most other films here,this is not a wasted 60 seconds of your life.

Iker
I loved it. But, the music... First watched without audio and, when I saw it with music... It didn't work. It's a sweet piece for such artsy fartsy score. Otherwise, sweet, original and simple.

Bryt
Great stuff - a wonderful way to make the point. I hope you produce some more

J
Excellent film. Of all the films on here this is my favourite. Music, pictures, story all work

GITA LOVA
GARETH...WHAT CAN I SAY!!! THIS WAS PANTS!! NO WONDER YOU NEVER LEFT MUCH DETAIL ABOUT YOURSELF, I'D BE VERY EMBARRASED IF I WERE YOU!!

rufina mavelle
I THINK YOU COULD IMPROVE IT BY CHANGING THE MUSIC; IT TOOK AWAY FROM THE NAIVETE OF THE VISUAL

Miko
simple but effective. A good story idea with a message that sticks. I thought the music provided a counterpoint to the child-image-style

clide
what to say... very different, and quirky enough to earn the clide..... thumb in the middle!!

maggi
i know where this coming from

Joe
You did something no one has ever done before and for a good reason. This was terrible. Th music was like a pianist who had just discovered a synthesizer.

Lizzie
Superb, hope you are encouraged to do more. Loved the music - just right for your subject.

Leila
Simple, Different, great! Especially liked the music, gave the animation more tone. well done!

Peg
Very good, simple, but very clever.

Miranda
The amount of comments this film ahs had speaks for itself. Really was an excellent piece of work. One showing the true storytelling prowess of the author/director , and also showing you really dont need speciall effects, or a hollywood budget to create - what a film essentially is - a story. Excellent!

Information

shrinkwrapped
Great stuff, and an ingenious use of a scanner! I thought the music was fine.

Bonnie
Oh that was lovely. Really liked it..

Ruairi
Really liked this one, very charming and kept me interested the whole way through. Great job!

Emma
it was good but the music could have been better

amazed
thank you gareth the best yet,this is what the 1 minute movie is all about.

amy
i just skimmed through the other comments and most people have said its rubbish, but i really really liked this, i was kindof 'hooked ' all the way through!

jarok
Good,but too serious.For Dads and Mums

jay
i'm getting really tired of these retarded dyslexic critics this film had meaning and passion i can't see why anyone would bepathstic and stupid enough to not get that the drawing was deliberatly childish gareth don't listen to the fools it was well good hope to see more from you

bridget
good message, strange choice of music though.

skinlesscod
Charming, but the dark music took the shine off.

clare
loved the child-like drawings but agree that the music didn't fit the story.the sentiments were spot on,

Emma + Frankie
Seems to be done by a 5 year old. Childish but good because hs a meaning to it.

bigtimestretchcharlie
would have been better silent. since the aanimation is very minimal.

Paul
I liked the simplicity of the story and images, but I found the background music far too opressive, it didn't seem to fit at all.

fella
nothing special

Niall
I like to animate but that was crudely drawn, maybe if it was drawn in more colours and slightly reastic it would be great. Liked the dad's advice at the end.

Someone
it's not that good.

Kate OBrien
I think that the message at the end was the best thing that i could ever agree on, " The best thing that you could give to your kids, is, your time "

Jenny
That was really kind of corny and if another one goes up there like that i think im gonna throw myself out of a window! i mean... who did this movie anyway because i like the wizard of oz better and i hate the wizard of oz! jeus! i hope you're brain works better then the movie! jesum! need a ride to doofusville? LOL

Chip
Charming and meaningful, but the music gives it a maudlin feel. A little more upbeat would be appropriate.

Doug
Best i've watched so far. Loved the music unlike others. Good message and simplistic drawings makes it very watchable.

Ad
Nice, a clever use of the one minute genre, with an uplifting (and wise) message.

Max
No real storyline, it was kinda what I was expecting and the music was really not that good either. Pictures looked like they'd been done by a four year old

Warblefly
I really liked it and the fact that you simply used a scanner and movie maker. However the music was a bit too sinister. Well done though!

Sofia
That was definately cute!!!

Johnny L.
Sublime ...

kile
The ending was great, yet it should get to the main point a bit faster and in a better way.

tickleee
pat

Debbie
that was such a adorable film!the pictures really made it come alive. music sounded like a computer game though!

Julie
Awwww... Well I thought it was really cute. A little corny perhaps but who cares?!

mum
more please!

hamish
this is just great!

Faith
Really good concept. It's imaginative and works very well. (A minor criticism is that perhaps the music didn't suit it that well.)

elsa
good luck catching a fish that big like that

Clive
Excellent message and very very true.

marisa
excellent - reminds me of all those letters we shared

Rob Davies
Really, really liked this. Simple but brilliantly done. Ny only criticism would be that the slightly avant garde piano music didn't really fit.

-skaster-
Simple. Clever. True. I couldn't watch more than a minute of this though! Sorry. It was brilliant. But any longer... People, this is certainly original film making though... -steve-

Davey Boy
Enjoyed that - and so simple. So much better than the pretentious and meaningless images that many people post on here!

Moi
What a sweet message - the music - perfect!

Jim
Somewhat trite, utterly tedious. Sorry!

bellybutton
i like navel tickling

happy
i love this movie wow!!! thts so sweet i love it and i love it

Reg
The message was clear. Didn't inspire

kat :-)
lovley, and touching, i love the simplicity of it all. i also love the simple soundtrack, it makes you think about whats being written.

Manchester
Wow, it really made me think. Good message that is put across easily without having to read to deeply into it. Best i'v seen so far, its a really cute film, so simple and effective, nearly made me cry!

Peter
Excellent story. Amazingly created without a camera. Full marks.

Scot Kenwood
Simply a master class in low budget film making.

Gareth Morlais
Just read the comment by Meowmix. Just to let you know that's most definitely not the case. Just wanted to clear that up. Thanks, Gareth (who made the film Tickling.)

Matteo
It amazes me what you can do with or without technology. Music aside (best to be used for a horror movie) I liked it. You've got some talent, and imagination. Well done.

Owen
Clever,simple,t ouching and true.

bollina
reminds me of all the time that my dad didn't spend with me! Alas I will make aure I won't make the same mistake!

hollis
that was good .. we had maybe 30 years of experience in one minute! on eof the best movies on here

Bridgett
WELL DONE THERE, TAKE A BACK SEAT DAVID LYNCH OF BLUE VELVET, WILD AT HEART, TWIN PEAKS AND MULHOLLAND DRIVE AND WELCOME IN GARETH MORLAIS EVERYONE!!!

Sheep
Sooo simple % d sound sooo moody that there HAS 2 b a hidden msg but not clear enough well done though

brush
excellent film.. i nearly cried at the end.

Film Fanatic
Simple but very effective

JOShUA kANE
SuPERB!!! THE NEW dAVid LYNCh!!

Ant
excellent piece. music well dark though. is there a darker side to this tale?

Meowmix
Wow, I don't know what I was reading into it, but I actually thought it was about him being molested by his father as a child (shape of fish, way holding it etc...) Music too... guess I was reading too deep

Andy Monk
Very well thought through

Joe
Why do I get the feeling this isn't as sraightforward as it seems?

wolverine
artistic!!

Axel
Nice but for the sound-track

Lee
Different, but a good overall message :-D

Annie Gee
Brilliant. Looking forward to your next minute. Thank you.

Danny Greene
Simply excellent, the simplest ideas are always the best...

Captain Birdseye
The best thing you can give anyone is Fish Fingers - They are the best! Well Done

John h
One of the better movies.

Kurdish_Princess
Ahh, truely compelling

Feedback
Too true - well done!

Jim Kenny
A lovely "animation" with a useful message. Music was slightly heavy for the subject.

scripty
Poignant and well put together - along with Santa the best i've seen!

ARRIVE
quality, absolute quality, loved it!

Jay
Well put together. Loved the editing on the camera flash. Good music. Quite touching.

Alan ollas
As a parent I felt this to be simple and something worth thinking about.

RonDaBomb
Carries a good message, all parents need to realize to paint a better future for both their children and society in general. Made with minimal equipment and the best i have viewed yet out of 5 others...Good show :-)

endada.art
Good visuals. Great editing. Good advice. A bit mushy??

Paul
This film was great. Iconic nostalgia... Simple lines... Excellent timing... stylish use of 60 seconds. I would suggest the film-maker try out full- animation, either as a hobby or as a career move. Only change I would have made?... The film-maker ought to have placed the "...He would take a photo..." card after the flash actually went off. Nice work - Lets see more!

Fraser McMillan
manages to get a lot into 1 minute. Very enjoyable. Well done!

Katherine
Simple but nice! Something to think about!

jay
It's simplicity is it's vertue. Avoiding the temptation of colour or naration actually adds to the final piece.

John T
Simple, charming, good soundtrack. This is great1
