Fan Film Corner: “Croft”
A woman will risk everything to save a young girl held hostage in the mountains by a group of mercenaries.
Inspired by the Tomb Raider video games among others along with some of the great action movies from the 80’s.
Croft is a Short Film created by a group of friends with a passion for film making. Independently produced we chose to use our strengths as a group to create the best experience for the audience we could. Our goal was to make a short film that would entertain and showcase our talents and have fun doing it.
Croft is a non-profit short fan film. This film is for entertainment purposes only. Inspired by the character created by Core Design and owned by Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics.
This short film (just under 20min) had me hooked from the start. Cinematography for a FAN MADE film was top notch! The action sequences were spot on! For anyone who has played the current reboot of Tomb Raider, this film has got the exact dark and gritty vibe as the game. The cast were excellent and you felt drawn on and connected to everyone, be they hero or villain. As for the ending I will only say, MIND…BLOWN.
This fan film features excellent acting across the board, fluid camera work, and visceral action scenes. Overall, for a non-profit project, this is darn impressive.
