Toby Wallace vs Toby Wallace as AACTA names short film nominees ...

This short film is incredible. It starts in a weird way, one in which you can’t really grasp what’s going on and then, after half of its length, it changes shot and reveals what’s hidden behind the first bizarre scene. It is really amazing how a short work can be so full of meanings in under six minutes, how it can turn the tables just by moving the camera to another frame, surprising the audience entirely.
