WORLD SPINS MADLY ON is a fun
and thoughtful film about the power of possibility. The world can often be a confusing and complicated place, but if we decide we want it, our world can be pretty simple…and if you just look hard enough, happiness will find you.

I'm going to slightly change the regular IndyRed review model for World Spins Madly On simply because "I Can" and because this title is deserving. With that written, let me very briefly touch on the technical aspects of this short. Everything is done decently and that's really all I want to write on that. Now... I'm going to get into the good stuff.
World Spins Madly On, as I'm sure you've guessed is pretty average on the production side of things. It's the general writing, humor... and overall feeling where this short film excels. We have a really nice feel good piece here. Truly. After watching this 6.5 minute short film I immediately felt happier! Somewhere between the opening segment; caught listening to the funny banter of random street people or watching a pan to the sky at the end, I simply felt the world was a better place. Ever heard an old song while driving around in your car that always made you feel a little better? Even if the song itself wasn't the greatest? That's the feeling I'm talking about and no, I'm not saying World Spins Madly On is not a good short. I'm simply saying that Writer / Director Jeremy Jed Hammel has created a piece that is more than the sum of it's technical parts. He's created a short film with enough emotional charm that it mutes almost every other aspect... except maybe the small cast that enable the natural charm. Excellent work.
To read about it, talk about it or attempt to judge the technical merits of World Spins Madly On does a great injustice in this case. We have a short film that literally embodies what the term "Indie Film" is supposed to stand for. Any piece that evokes a feeling, good or bad is a feat in itself! Here, with this title we have get a good vibration and that's the magic of Indie film! I personally got a smile from the girls ringtone at the end. That... was classic.
