Intermission: School Portraits
And you thought your school photo experience was traumatic.
Director Nick Scott delivers an equal measure of cute and humor in his video School Portraits (2011). When faced with a nasty portrait photographer seeking to give them a "reality check," most children lose their smiles and give in to frowns. One adorable girl, though, just keeps on smiling—even as the photographer describes divorce in detail. The excellent dinosaur badge on one of the school children helps the cute factor too.
