“Fat Kid Rules the World” wins the Narrative Spotlight Audience Award!

 

Reviews are coming in:
“Fat Kid Rules the World has a refreshingly distinct visual style. Unlike many films, where light floods the screen and images are given a well-lit, sometimes flat, base to work with, filmmaker Matthew Lillard’s debut feature instead revels in the depths of the shadows created when you go for a more natural light feel. A simple shot of Troy on his bed, for example, is given so much more weight (no pun intended) when the shadows are allowed to define his countenance. It also gels with that punk aesthetic that the film is trying to instill in its main character.”
