Terminal movie (2017)

18057953_648827058648246_1703409584892074256_n (1)Terminal is a short story surrounding a man who hasn’t lived a productive life, and soon it will come to an end because of a terminal disease. One man wants to take advantage of the end to this sorrow life. He makes a proposal to him where he promises him a lavish ending to his otherwise miserable life. There is also the incentive of him leaving behind something for his newborn child. But there is a catch in this deal, and that is he must kill someone. So one option is he has to leave the world alone without any good impact towards the people who were close to him. On the other hand, he will be able to enjoy the last few days of his life in style by also helping his loved ones by sacrificing an unknown person. This is a perfect deal of the devil, and many before him have already chosen to ignore their ethics to kill an unknown individual. In Terminal this dilemma was showcased in not only stylistic but also in a thought-provoking way by rookie director Christian Meier with the help of established visionary cinematographer Konstantin Frolov.

In a short period of time Terminal was able to reflect this thought-provoking idea on screen in a non-convoluted way. So, everyone working in this short film especially the director who is also the screenwriter and cinematographer should be praised for that. Moreover, they were able to make the plot even more stunning by adding a twist which came out of nowhere. This made a good film transformed into a great one. So not only they were able to intrigue the audience with a good plot they were also able to give them a nice surprise at the end, and all these twist and turns were done within 16 minutes. The reason behind all these plot points mashing together perfectly in this short time frame is good planning and good execution by great filmmaking minds.

He was also the screenwriter for this project. Sometimes there is a conflict between the director’s and the screenwriter’s vision. Which sometimes results in a convoluted outcome. But there was no such issue here. As Christian Meier was solely in charge of steering the ship, there was no such complication. He had the freedom to write his vision for the film down, and direct it the way he envisioned it. This meant that there was a perfect plan coming from a singular source. Which meant that there was no mixed message to make the short film more lengthy or convoluted. Moreover, he had fixed instruction for his actors to follow. This meant that there was no room for the actors to derail from the vision of Christian Meier. And under his guidance, both of the main actors did tremendously. Christian Meier’s perfect plan also insured that they were able to complete their filming of the movie in a very short notice in Los Angeles. Christian Meier had this to say about filming Terminal: “Terminal is a little film made in just a few days that filled with pride and joy to all of us who were part of it.” Judging from that comment alone it is clear that Christian Meier is satisfied with what his team has done. And the amount of leadership he has shown in making this great film also shows that he has a bright future ahead of him.

Now let’s talk about Christian Meier’s right-hand man, without whom his vision for the film would never have come to fruition. The man in question is none other than Konstantin Frolov. He acted as the experienced head alongside the rookie director Christian Meier and was able to smoothen the sharp edges of a debutant director. Konstantin Frolov is originally from Russia. But his love for film took him to the famed New York Film Academy (NYFA). There he learned the skills of becoming a visionary cinematographer form the best teachers. And judging from his work in Terminal movie alone, he is on the right path to be considered as one of the most promising cinematographers out there. Because his camevisaphoto (12 of 106)ra movement makes it feel like we are watching a film by David Fincher or Alejandro González Iñárritu. He has mastered smooth camera movement while also prioritizing the main part of every scene. This made the viewers feel more connected to the characters on screen. Thus creating a much more intense feeling for the viewers. Moreover, his camera work creates a great platform for the actors to shine. As he focuses on the actor without the viewers even noticing it, this amplifies the quality of the delivery of the actor and makes every seen much more compelling. With these set of skills Konstantin Frolov was able to bring Christian Meier’s vision to life. He has also worked wonders for the career of Christian Meier’s son and leading actor on the film Stefano Meier. Stefano Meier’s father Christian Meier instructed his son about what to do in front of the camera. But it was Konstantin Frolov who showcased the talent of the young actor. Without his work behind the camera, Stefano Meier’s work wouldn’t have been as impressive as it is now. Because Stefano Meier’s character required a vibe of mystery surrounding him, and Konstantin Frolov was able to provide him just that. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have Joseph Lopez’s character. His character needed to showcase authority in the film, and Konstantin Frolov was able to provide him that too. So both leading actors were given the perfect platform to shine and they seized that opportunity to do just that.

Great work was done by everyone surrounding the film, and luckily it hasn’t gone unnoticed in the film industry. As Terminal visaphoto (20 of 106)have already started gathering prizes for their work. In the Frostbite International Film Festival in the United States, they have won awards in the categories of best short film, best male actor and best original score thus far. And there is no reason for both Terminal and its creators to stop there. As judging from the caliber of their work, it is only the beginning of their illustrious career.
