Here at YouPlusDallas, we love covering the goings on in our city from a cinematic point of view, but sometimes, we just like to tell a story of our own. This Valentine’s Day, we debuted a YouPlusDallas original short film entitled Just In Time For Love, directed by Jun Kang, which has garnered a pretty nice response from the artistic community.
Hipster Critic recently reviewed the YPD original, and dotes on the city as one of the short film’s main characters.
Says the review:
I think director Jun Kang is a talented artist. The city and the actors looked timeless. Every shot felt deliberate and artistic. When it comes to the story, while I found it fun to watch, it wasn’t particularly memorable. The actors were good enough, but at times their performance felt over done. The main actor, Justin Locklear looks unique and classic all at the same time, but during his performance I couldn’t forget that he was acting and this kept me from getting swept up in the story. Actress Cara Johnston also looked wonderful on screen as the nerdy but pretty-girl-from-down-the-street. Yet, she too, gave me a slightly awkward feeling that sub-par acting can evoke.
