Online film review site “Film Radar” posted a review of “The Notice” among others from HollyShorts Film Festival.
” The Notice, Directed by Sonny Soto, is a dark sci-fi film about a dystopian future in which the world government picks people at random to die in order to keep the population in check. Like The Pond, the notice deals with the themes of loss and death, but where the pond takes a mystical approach to these themes, The Notice approaches loss and death with a cold, philosophical detachment, making it all the more chilling.
In The Notice, death is cold, uncaring, and strikes at random. The protagonists are two bureaucrats whose job it is to drive around and give people notice that they are going to die in thirty-six hours, so that they have the time to put their affairs in order. The big emotional punch from the film comes from showing how different people choose to spend their last hours of life. The Notice is a dark, philosophical, and deep sci-fi film, which effectively deals with the absurdity of death.” - Jonathan (Film Radar)
During the HollyShorts Film Festival, Film Slate Magazine interviewed Dir. Sonny Saito and actor Eric Frentzel. The interview is now up on Film Slate Magazine site.
